The Piggyback Rider Child Carrier in Action!

What do you do when your baby outgrows your favorite baby carrier? The information in this review may convince you that the NEW Piggyback Carrier covers the next stage after your little one becomes too big for a traditional baby carrier but is still too little to keep up with your every step during an all-day adventure.

This carrier is the first and only child carrier that allows you to comfortably carry a child up to a weight of 60 lbs and serves to bridge the gap between when the time when your child has exceeded the weight limits of your standard baby carrier and is capable of walking long distances without needing to be carried.

How many times have you wanted to take your child along on an outing only to have second thoughts about whether or not he or she had the stamina? Remembering the last time you had to cut your trip short because of a tired child, you may have gotten a sitter or just stayed home to avoid this dilemma. To prevent your little one or yourself from missing out, I highly recommend that you give the Piggyback Rider™ a try.

There is still some physical fitness required, but all in all you will find this baby gear to be so much better than the old-fashioned piggyback ride. I’ve read that it’s natural for humans to carry their children. Nature may have made me that way, but really…how long can you carry your child piggyback before both of you are uncomfortable, irritable and just plain worn out?

Improving on nature can be a good idea at times, so let’s learn more about the Piggyback Rider to see if it can help you to comfortably carry your child on your back for longer distances.

HOW DOES THE PIGGYBACK RIDER CARRIER WORK?

As easy to get into position as a backpack, the Piggyback Rider™ has a shoulder mounted foot bar for the child to stand on, handles for your child to hold onto plus as an added security measure, a safety harness.

WHY IS USING THIS CARRIER BETTER THAN CARRYING KIDS PIGGYBACK?

The sturdy aluminum bar that the child stands on positions the center of mass over your hips locating the bulk of the child’s weight at your core. I found that this increased my level of endurance and took some pressure off my lower back. Another bonus was that the baby can hold onto the provided handles rather than wrapping arms around your neck. I don’t know about you, but every child that I ever gave a piggyback ride did their best to cut off my air supply while trying to hold on to The Piggyback Rider™ child carrier has eliminated that uncomfortable situation.

The position of the handles is position at two easy to reach locations on the shoulder straps to prevent those little hands from grabbing you around your neck. The handles combined with the safety harness gives the child a feeling of security that allows them to relax and enjoy the ride!


WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THE Piggyback Rider™ CHILD CARRIER

The first thing that caught my attention is that it’s no bigger than a rolled up towel and very lightweight at less than 3 pounds. I like to be prepared but we all know that packing in preparation for all situations can get HEAVY so, the lighter the equipment the better.
I like that it’s easy to adjust so that when I get tired dad can carry pop the Piggyback Child Carrier on and take over without a huge hassle or vice versa.

HOW DO THE KIDS LIKE IT?

My oldest daughter is addicted to comfort. Something as insignificant as her socks being crooked can be cause for a virtual whine-fest. That being said, she thought riding on the Piggyback Rider was a blast. She’s a little chunky monkey, so I‘m definitely going to continue to let hubby carry her on long hauls while I manage the less heavy family members but I look forward to his not complaining about this as much as in the past.


THE BOTTOM LINE

The truth is as we all know that strollers are a pain to pack and we feel kind of dumb for doing so when our kids don’t want to ride in them. The Piggyback Child carrier is so much easier to pack than a bulky stroller and the kids think that it’s lots of fun! Will I still want dad to do the work? Being the lazy kind of mom that I am, I’m going to be honest and tell you that chances are I’ll do my best to look tired and pitiful to convince him he should do the honors but if things don’t work out as planned the Piggyback Rider™ will make things much, much easier.

I hope that my

Piggyback Rider Nomis Basic Model
by: vaughn6500

We just recently received a Piggyback Rider NOMIS Basic model which we bought directly from their website and tested it immediately. This model is supposed to have a more "ROBUST" foam on their carrier straps as mentioned on the piggybackrider website.

Anyone will need a little bit of common sense to use it. As mentioned on one of the comments made on one of the reviews at Amazon.com, this contraption is NOT a GRAVITY DEFYING device. You will literally feel the weight of the child on your shoulders while using it as well as after using it for quite some time.

This product also requires some practice to get used to it. There are no waist belts for this standing child carrier. The aluminum bar where the child stands has a non slip grip so it is recommended by the manufacturer that the child wear shoes while riding the bar otherwise it is going to be a bit uncomfortable for the rider.

This is only an initial review since we have only used it for a limited time which for us is NOT sufficient enough for both a full review or a recommendation of this product.

I tested it together with my 35 lb son which by the way is still within the allowable load limit as prescribed by the manufacturer of the product. We walked around 8 blocks (one way) to the nearest 7-11 convenient store just to buy a loaf of bread then walked back home. Our house is located on the 3rd floor of a building which made us decide not to use the elevator but to use the 40+ step stair (both for going down and going back up) for this errand. It was indeed a good workout since you are really going to sweat it out. During this errand, I was really able to feel the full weight of the child on my shoulders. He was on it the whole time and he only went down when we were back home from the store. Once he was down and after removing the PbR, I felt a bit of a strain on my shoulders which was due to the child's weight and as they say; it got old. It was also a bit uncomfortable when the child started excitedly shifting his weight around while still riding the PbR. He was happy that he can now see the same as I do. He was having fun while riding the bar.

The Piggyback Rider is indeed a real HEAD TURNER! You see people looking at you with admiration on their smiling faces and hear compliments like how cool the product is and sometimes they simply approach you then ask you where to buy the product. My BlackBerry Smartphone fits nicely inside the pocket on the front of the NOMIS Basic Model.

As you can tell, there is still some fine tuning to take care of and some kinks that I still need to work out on using it.
