About 4 months later we gave Kokon another chance – it was exactly the same carrier with giraffes, i.e. Jana’s Kokon that we tested for the second time. And, there was a complete turn-around in my feelings; I thought Kokon was just terrific and if it was not for the absence of the bidirectional buckles, I would have probably bought one of my own.
Emilka was 16 months old when we tested Kokon for the last time – this time it was a different model, provided by the Czech distributor (to whom we want to thank for the opportunity). Emilka got bigger and heavier in the meantime, of course and therefore, my excitement about Kokon faded a little bit. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
According to the distributor, the carrier is recommended for children from 65 to 104-105 cm of height. Bravo, three times bravo! Finally, someone who recommends a carrier according to the height of the baby! And moreover, the recommendation is quite realistic. In her 6 months of age, Emilka was about 65 cm tall (long ;)), maybe even a little less, and in her 10 and 16 months of age she was still somewhere in the middle of the recommended range. What I must stress out is that even in her 16 months of age/cca 74 cm of height we did not need to use the extenders. Even though 104 cm is, in my opinion, a little bold statement about the maximum height of the wearie, I certainly do not think that it is out of reality (however, I think there are few children measuring 104 cm that would like to be worn in a carrier voluntarily).
