Child carrier that both parent and child will enjoy

Our family takes 2-3 mile walks several times a week and though we have a stroller, I prefer the Kangaroo carrier and so does our son. We have tried other carriers, but this is the best one we have seen. It has a support harness that distributes the child's weight onto the hips, and away from the back. The feature that makes this carrier stand out from all the rest is the support harness. The Kangaroo is designed for children up to 28 lbs, and we have used it now for well over a year. The design is well thought out. One adult can singlehandedly strap in a squirming child. The child can face in towards the chest, or once the neck is strong enough, face forward. The child support pouch is comfortable and roomy for the child and has pockets for baby items and cold hands. The carrier is great for outdoor trails that are not built for strollers, and it has found use on shopping trips and other family outings year round.
