Hi Is the back strap/clip (on the child harness) adjustable to slide down to be positioned mid back/torso for example instead of up by the shoulders- I'm scared my child with low tone would "slump" out of it and fall off. Thanks
Yes - the back horizontal strap has the ability to slide up and down depending on the need and height of the child. Thanks for your question!
My grandson has quadriplegic spastic cerebral palsy everything is so expensive for him is there any discount for this my husband would like to go for walks with Jackson and me but he is 5 years old and we are senior citizens on a fixed income

My son has cerebral palsy and is getting a bit heavy (~50 lbs) for riding on my shoulders. What are the "special needs discounts" your site says to ask about?
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss the discount!
What is the difference between the small medium and large?
The sizes are based on the length of the wearer's torso. To get an optimum fit and get the most comfort from your Freeloader Carrier, measure your spine using our size guide. (Look for a teal button on this page titled "Size Guide" or visit this link: https://myfreeloader.com/pages/size-guide)
We were excited to get the carrier as it would give us a new way to travel with our daughter. She is 78 pounds but is 53 inches long and cannot sit on her own. So we need to pay to ship it back and a 15%restocking fee. It's like we are being blamed because it did not fit our daughter. I will not recommend this to others because of the way I was treated in trying to return it.
Fantastic! We are currently stationed overseas for 3 years and trying to travel as much as possible. With a 2 year old this can be a challenge but the Freeloader carrier has been a game changer! It is super easy to take on flights and store in the overhead compartments. It is also a breeze to wear even when the child is not in the carrier which is my biggest complaint for the other bulky child carriers. My daughter also seems so much more free in the Freeloader whereas in the other carriers she seemed so confined and seemed annoyed that her arms were often pinned in. My only wish is that is had a thin lightweight bag to pack it for taking in on the plane to contain the straps. We LOVE it and are excited to take it on our many adventures to come!
It is comfy for my (almost) 4 y old and I can easily strap him and put him on my back on my own, when I have to travel without my partner. Unfortunately, it does not fit me completely and my son seems to be much heavier than when I carry him in his traditional baby carrier. It would be helpful to have someone online (with video) to assist with positioning correctly the carrier.
We bought the carrier for a 2 week trip to several national parks. During the first week we hiked over 50 miles with a 40 pound kid in the carrier. We wouldn't have been to do all we did if it wasn't for the carrier. There are a few options I'd like added (water bladder storage, more storage in general) but otherwise it is a great product. It folds up easy for transport and the kids love riding in it.
