In the last couple months I've had several mamas contact me to say specifically that not only do they find the Silly Goose Baby carrier comfortable to wear, their older child (2-3 years) who normally wants down after a few minutes in a carrier is LOVING the Silly Goose! These mamas report even asking their child if s/he wants down, and the answer is a resounding no. The conclusion they report is that the child is actually comfortable in a Silly Goose and that makes the ride more enjoyable. And there is nothing like extending those moments of close contact--or just having the kid tied up . . . I mean tied on . . . at the grocery store! ;-)
Here is a picture of two 3 1/2 year-olds in a Silly Goose Baby--standard height. Notice how it goes right up to each knee and both girls are sitting in the carrier? I do honestly believe that is why these kids are so comfortable. Their legs are supported and their bottom is down in a deep, supportive pocket.
Happy Babywearing (and Toddler-wearing, too!)
