Rachael sent us this question about hiking with a baby — what kind of carrier do you hiking mamas use?
As it warms here in Southern California, the family is getting ready to don our hiking boots and hit the trails. However, my partner and I have NO IDEA how to choose a good backpack/carrier for our six-month-old son (who is 22 pounds already!).
We’ve found lots of options, but since we’ve never hiked with a little droid before, it’s getting overwhelming trying to choose. I know there are lots of outdoorsy mamas on this site and I would love any references and/or advice for choosing a great hiking backpack so hiking can be a family outing!
Tell us — which hiking backpacks and/or infant carriers work best for you and why?
