Patapaum's Baby and Toddler Carriers allow you to continue shopping, walking, hiking, or doing housework while you are being hugged by the one you love, your baby! Heavy babies and toddlers are easily managable using the lightweight yet super strong Patapum Toddler Carrier. The shoulder straps are attached to the hipbelt, distributing weight very efficiently. Side straps give back support to the toddler keeping him close to the center of gravity. The waist belt can be adjusted up to 55" which makes it perfect to share between wearers. The Patapum is made of 100% cotton shell and inside straps are made of breathable synthetics that can be machine washed in cold. The Patapum also offers a soft cotton mesh sleeping hood that can be tucked away when not in use.
