Fear not, rugged and sporty parents: there’s no need to give up your all-day hikes now that there’s a baby on board. Backpack baby carriers provide the support you need to haul your baby around all day long, whether you’re walking across the city or the woods. read more
Ergo Baby and Deuter are two of our top brands for serious back-carrying. This is because backpack baby carriers are best suited for kids who are old enough to sit up comfortably in their baby carrier with full head and neck control, and those babies get heavy. So you want a baby carrier with major support: a rugged hip belt and/or a tough but light aluminum frame.
Ergo Baby carriers are among the most popular baby carriers we sell, because they’re just so comfortable! Ergo carriers were among the first baby carriers to use a wide, padded waist band to properly distribute baby’s weight to your hips and shoulders, and the result is a baby carrier you can use from birth right up to 40 pounds (and in some cases 45, depending on the model). Plus, you can use your Ergo Baby Carrier in a variety of positions – the back carry is just one of many options.
If you need a tougher backpack baby carrier for serious hikes, though, you’ll want to go with one of our options from Deuter, a German backpack manufacturer that’s famed for their hiking gear. Deuter baby carriers are a bit bulkier, but they kick up the outdoors convenience a serious notch – and they’re really sporty and tech-y, which dads love.
Not sure which one of these baby carriers is for you? After all, in addition to these baby backpacks, we’ve got baby slings, Bjorns, Becos and Bobas aplenty, and we can see where all those great baby carrier options might be confusing. So if you need a hand, contact us! Our customer service associates are experts at matching parents with the products that fit your lifestyle, and we’re always happy to help. show less
