Carrier for toddler back carry?
 
What carrier do you recommend for a toddler - 2.5 years old, 34 pounds - for a back carry? We are going to Disney and I think a carrier is the way to go through the airport and for a break from the stroller in the parks. I am on the shorter side, if that makes a difference. Thank you!!

If you didn't want to use a stroller at all, and you needed some space for diapers, snacks, etc, I can spend hours carrying LO in a structured frame backpack without any discomfort. Deuter, Kelty, and Osprey all make ones that REI carries.

I'm not sure how well they do for carry-on luggage at the airport though.

We will be taking a stroller too, so I am looking for something that can stash in the basket of our Maclaren when kiddo is in the stroller. She's a runner, so she needs to be contained whenever possible!

I have an Ergo baby carrier, but I've heard from people who have both that they prefer the Boba. It has little straps for the toddler's feet to rest in that the Ergo doesn't have. I hear the Boba is soft but supportive. Good luck! Have fun!

Cute!

Do you have the toddler size? My DD is about the same size as your son.

Yes we did toddler/standard, we went from an ergo to it and I'm so glad. It's a lot more comfy for both of us

Definitely a Toddler Kinderpack. It is just miles away better than the Ergo at that age. You can email her to see whether a Petite or a Standard would be better for your body type. I have the Plus and it is almost too big for me on the smallest setting (I'm 6' and size 16ish). I'm guessing the Standard runs on the large side.

I have an Ergo Sport and a Boba 3G. I adore my Boba and would highly recommend it! I am 5'2" and 120 lbs and my DS is 32" tall and 22 lbs at 15 months. It will easily store in the stroller basket.
