Mother of two small children and wearer of many hats, including conservationist and environmental consultant, McKittrick is no stranger to the balance of parenthood, adventure, work and all the “other stuff” in life. And this woman takes on big adventures, such as long distance backpacking expeditions, including a few with not one, but two very small children in tow. Check out my review of her book, “Small Feet, Big Land: Adventure, Home and Family on the Edge of Alaska.”
When my daughter became a fairly competent self-feeder, I struggled to find snacking containers and bottles that would serve us well on-the-go, whether we were out biking, hiking, travelling or just running errands in town. When Eco Vessel came knocking on my inbox, it was perfect timing and I thought I’d give their products a whirl!
One thing I’ve learned as an outdoorsy mother is that the way you carry or transport your baby is the key to being active outdoors with your baby.
I’m the kind of woman who immediately started thinking about outdoor baby gear when she found she was pregnant. I couldn’t accept the possibility that my passion for hiking would end up on the back burner. So, even in the early stages of pregnancy I started researching how I would get out on the trail with my little one.
The Deuter Kid Comfort series came up many times in my research, and after some humming and hawing I decided I’d give the Deuter Kid Comfort III ($299 USD) – also known as “The Cadillac” of carriers – a try.
