We had no idea what to do with this item when our first little one arrived 15 years ago, and this was a product which took a lot of getting used to.
It was not easy to figure out exactly how it worked, but boy, once we figured it out it became the one single item which we found the most useful baby care item we ever owned. It was used and reused three times for our three children, and an extra two were bought to make sure we were never left in a situation without one.
We would truly be lost if we had to parent new children again without a Kapoochi today and it remains the only baby care product we became so grateful for that we have never allowed it to go to a new home, we still own all three!! every other baby care item has been given away.
Easily the best baby care product we have ever owned, but only once you figure out how to use it!!
I tried this carrier for around a month, but it was really painful when carrying my newborn DD. She was only in the 3rd percentile for weight, so I dread to think how much a bigger baby would hurt!
I also had difficulty getting my bub in and out without help
I was given mine as a hand me down, and they had the same issue. I gave the carrier away and the new owner seems to like it.
Not one I would try again or reccomend
Out off all the frount packs i've used, the kapoochi classic was by far the most uncomfortable, it was good for the first mth or so, but once bubs got to about 3mths of age, he was already too heavy for me to carry hiim for too long in it, I found the frount pack lacked in back support, which was most of the problem
Bubs looked really comfy inthe pouch, which was a plus, and the fabric was very easy to clean when he had his little spills, it was really light weight, took a while to get the hang of getting bubs in and out of it
Over all, its not a pouch I would use again or suggest to anyone,
