When you carry your toddler, you probably hear from your family, your friends or even from strangers that your kid is slowly becoming too tall to carry. Phrases like: You spoil your child. He will not want to walk later. Or is he not too heavy for you? Many of you will know.
But how long can you actually carry your child? At what age is the wearing time over?
If your child is just starting to walk, it is often the time for a
babywearing strike. Your child wants to discover the world, turn over every stone, look at every leaf and explore every flower extensively. A short walk can turn to a very long walk. During this
time, some children do not want to sit in a carrier anymore. This is often just a phase of a few weeks or a few months. Often follows a second babywearing time.
The Huckepack carriers are available in toddler and preschooler size. The
toddler carrier starts at 86cm, while the preschooler starts from 98cm and are intended for the really big kids. This kid carrier is available as a Huckepack Full Buckle, Onbuhimo, Half
Buckle and Wrap Tai. You can also wear your child comfortably in a Ring Sling or Podaegi. Which carrier is best for you, you should try. You can, for example, order a test package.
We have often made baby carriers for disabled children. We can customize the carrier to the needs of your child.
We made our largest carrier so far for an 11-year-old disabled child, so that he could be worn by his father during a school trip and thus participate in the hike. We are looking forward to advise you, if you need a customized carrier.
You can wear your child as long as you feel comfortable with it. There is nothing wrong with wearing a 4 or 5 year old child. The moments of babywearing are becoming increasingly rare, so enjoy these moments as long as possible. With a gcarrier, you can carry even a heavy child comfortably and it facilitates the everyday life in many situations.
Write us in the comments how long you have been wearing your child. Do you remember when you last carried your child?
My child was 5 years old, when he was the last time in a carrier. We were at a concert by Paul Simon and at the end of the concert, my son was very tired and wanted to sit in the carrier, but kept his eyes open and listened to the music, until the very end. On the way home he fell asleep in the carrier.
