A while back we struggled to access all the parts of a family attraction with just the use of a pushchair.
After coming home from the night away from Warwick Castle we vowed to find a solution to be able to access all attractions with Jacob and after doing some research a child carrier seemed to be the way forward.
We were amazingly lucky to get the chance to work with LittleLife again this year with Jacob as we had done in previous years with Joshua and so we were given the opportunity to review one of their products. So we jumped at trying one of their child carriers.
With an Italian holiday on the horizon we decided that being able to take a child carrier with us might be good idea so were thrilled on discovering their Traveller S3 Child Carrier.
The Traveller S3 is designed to look like a standard backpack but by unzipping the main compartment you can access the carrier part that your little human sits in.
It has a hidden frame inside to ensure its nice and sturdy and has a really well padded back and straps which were also super easy to adjust to ensure Jacob sat well and the wearer was comfy too.
We initially were dubious about being able to use it as hand luggage as it was 1cm bigger than the allowed cabin bag space with Jet2, however we had no issues either flying out or coming back with it and it was accepted as hand luggage on both journeys easily without batting an eye at it.
It has several pockets so we were able to add all of Jacobs things into it for the journey, effectively using it as a nappy bag through the airport. However when adding in Jacob we had to remove his beaker as there was nowhere for it stay as the storage pocket is not that deep we could fit it in.
Jacob was immensly comfortable while travelling in it and he loved the animal cushion in front of him. It was easier than I had anticipated getting him in and out but when doing this on your own I found that by putting it directly on the floor between my feet then adding him in made it easier to do so the carrier didn’t move.
I recently had abdominal surgery so Ollie has been the one that doing the carrying and initially he said it was odd getting used to the carrier but that it was based on never having used one before.
I love how this carrier doesn’t look too bulky or when not in use the fact it doesn’t look like one at all. And being able to take everywhere makes it a great toddler bit of kit.
For a multi country option or even like us a first step using a child carrier this is a super option!
