If you haven't already bought your big kid's backpack for back to school, WomansDay.com has some great advice to help you choose the right one for your child...
- Find a size that sits snugly on the child’s upper back, at least 2 inches above the waist.
- A full pack shouldn’t weigh more than 10% to 20% of your child's body weight.
- Use both shoulder straps and fasten the waist strap for added support.
