More and more parents are choosing an active life, and so that requires a better understanding of what type of baby carrier/backpack they can use when taking their baby or toddler with them. Choosing the wrong one could mean an uncomfortable time for not only you, but your child as well – and so getting it right is so important.

With so many different options available to you, we thought we would point you in the direction of what seem to be the Best 5 Baby Carriers come Backpacks for Hiking in 2017 are:

First of all there is the Manduca Standard Edition Carrier, which is a 3–in–1 baby carrier, and seems to be one of the most popular on the market in the UK. It’s designed to not only be comfortable, but also supportive and safe. There are several wearing positions, such as on the hip, at the front, and also the back.

Next we have the Ergo Performance Baby Carrier 360, which offers Four Positions, and comes with a breathable 3D Air Mesh lining, which helps to keep your baby cool – perfect for the Summer months.

The Ergobaby Original Carrier is also a backpack worth considering because it’s a product that has been endorsed by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. What makes this all the more special is that Mum’s can easily breastfeed whilst wearing the carrier.

As for the last two that you should consider, these are the BABYBJORN Baby Carrier Original, and the Chicco Finder Backpack.
