When we were in Northern Lapland, we didn'd have any strollers with us. All the long walks we did kids in baby carriers. When thinking of the right size for our 1 meter long firstborn, I contacted Niina from Wearababy to advise in choosing the right size carrier. In one year our child had grown over 12cm so a upgrade in size was in mind. So we received a Wompat Kide Kuura in preschool-size with black corduroy as waist and straps material.
Our oldest is granddad's best friend and there was no doubt that who was going to use our newest carrier. He told that the wompat was nice, very supportive and he didn't have to adjust it along the way. It was easy to have a good seat for the child and in preeschol-size carrier child could have his hands over the panel with winter clothes. Straps are a little stiff at the start but this I allready knew by experience because this is our third wompat. The previous two I have had custom-made from my own fabric. Before I have taken adjustable straps at a little extra cost but now those are standards in every wompat. My father is 1,75m long and even he had adjustable straps all tightened so the child would be good high enough and could see clearly over the shoulders.
With strollers you could never reach the camping place, the few kilometers walk in soft snow would be too much of a struggle for him.
Kide is one of Wearababy's own Vanamo-designs. Vanamo's are Finnish machine woven wraps and designs have had their inspiration from old Finnish designs. Kide means ice crystals in Finnish and it is one of my favorites of Vanamo patterns. Grey-white color is gender neutral,really beautiful and stylish.
Shovel was very important tool in walking trips, he could "work" while we were stopping and when walking he was hiting the trees going by.
Wompat oli mukana myös vappuna ja tällä kertaa miehelläni käytössä. Reppu tuntui kuulemma mukavalle ja kaikin puolin hyvälle, ja esikoinenkin tunsi olonsa turvalliseksi väenpaljoudessa sekä moottoripyörien jylinässä.
The first of May we went to the city to look at the motorcycle parade and of course we had baby carriers with us instead of strollers. In the crowd and loud noise he felt comfortable and safe in his fathers back.
Taaperokokoinen Wompat oli mukana paljon luetussa taaperoreppujen testissä ja Liinalapsen valikoimaan kuuluu myös aiemmin blogissa näkynyt Slingyroo.
Kiitokset Niinalle yhteistyöstä ja ennen kaikkea jälleen ihanasta repusta! Oululaisille tiedoksi, että reppua saa käydä kokeilemassa, jos oman esikoulukokoisen repun hankinta on mielessä.
