I was looking for a baby carrier that would work for a friend of mine who has an autistic child and needed a way to carry her. She's older than the recommended age, but also smaller. The Patapum Todder Carrier holds up to 62lbs. so we gave it a try. It worked great! Sometimes you just need to be able to carry disabled children through crowds, so this carrier works great and is well made. While I was shopping for BornFree sippy cups at The Soft Landing baby store, I noticed that they mentioned the Patapum Carrier as an option for carrying older, but smaller disabled children. Cool!
