Would a jujube with backpack straps work for this?....

I have no place that sells jujube here so I can't try it. I want a backpack style back that I can wear while baby-wearing. I'm 5 foot 10 and around a size 16 on top and 14 on the bottom. Would the straps be long enough?

I have a skip hop dash that is barely big enough for 2 kids and I sometimes have 3 or 4. I want something I use while baby wearing easily.

I need something big enough for 2 kids, if I have 3 or 4 I will take the double stroller.

Open to other brands do but I want something with stroller clips so if I have all 4 kids I can hook both bags easily to the double stroller.

Gabe has worned our BFF, while wearing a coat. He is an XL-XXL in mens, so yes, I think it will work fine.

I wouldn't say the BFF is big enough for 2 kids or more ....I only carry stuff for DS2 & it's crammed!!! I don't have alot other than receiving blanket, outfit change, bequick with some dipes/wipes & then my wallet.....however the backpack straps are nice, fairly long I would say :)

Petunia Picklebottom makes two different backpack style ones and the straps are pretty long IMO. I have the Sashay Satchel which is smaller but their more rectangle shaped pack might be good for you.

I am about a size 10 and I was wearing mine with my huge down coat on yesterday and I only used half of the strap length.

Hum, now I read on thebabywearer that a packabe would be better when wearing a baby on your back since it can be a messenger style too. Any thoughts?

I'm not sure how much I would really wear the bag while babywearing, last week I considered not taking a stroller and putting a couple of diapers, small thing of wipes, a bottle, in a small tote and tie it to the bottom rail of my wrap. I needed up taking a stroller because a friend of mine wanted to bring hers and I was only going to leave mine so I could avoid the elevator. ;)

Does the BFF rest flat against your back like a normal backpack, or hang funny making a letter V shaped space between your back and the bag?

I have a timi and leslie 2-in-1 bag, that can be worn as a backpack or a messenger bag, comes with stroller clips. I can fit enough for 2 kids all day, or 3 kids for shorter trips. I wear a 1x-2x tshirt and can wear it over my mei tai straps with a sweatshirt on (haven't tried it with a coat

I considered the timi and Leslie, it is cute! I've put way too much thought into this and I'm going to stick with the BRB. I'll see how much I use it while baby wearing and decide if I need something else when I start to do back carries.

I used the brb today at the science center while babywearing, worked great!

Only issues were it would have been nice to have water bottles for everyone and a short sleeve shirt for the 4 year old I watch who was hot and the BRB was quite stuffed with the cooler of milk and cloth diapers.
