This easy to use wrap made from moisture-wicking fabric is lightweight, cool and comfortable.

About this Product
  • Ultra lightweight
  • Performance fabric wicks moisture and blocks UVA and UVB rays
  • Five positions or baby with no infant insert necessary
  • Double loop design slips on like a T-shirt
  • Sized for wearer


Baby K’tan’s hip-healthy carriers are ideal for beginner baby-wearers and parents who can’t face the usual 10-plus steps required to use a wrap, but still want the snuggly closeness. Pared down to three steps that even the sleep-deprived can handle, the Baby K’tan goes on quickly and comfortably adjusts to five different positions. (It does require some practice to master the steps of looping the material into various positions.) The carrier slips on like a T-shirt, and the double-loop design evenly distributes your baby’s weight across your shoulders and back. It also has a carrying pouch that doubles as a supportive sash for your back (don’t throw it away!).

Like most wraps, the K’tan is best for smaller babies. However, the K’tan Active has less stretch than the K’tan Classic or Breeze, so it will provide more support for bigger babies. It’s made of high-tech polyester, an ultra-lightweight, wicking fabric that keeps both adult and baby cool, making this a great pick for warm climates or those that just run hot. The material also blocks 90% of UVA and UVB rays.

Unlike a typical wrap that can be modified to fit all-size wearers, the Baby K’tan comes in specific sizes. A partner or caregiver whose body size is different from yours won’t be able to share this carrier with you. However, since the carrier is sized to the adult, not the baby, you won’t need to buy a larger size as your baby grows. The carrier size generally corresponds to your fitted (tight) T-shirt size. (See details in specs below.)

If you are 5’2” or under, choose a smaller size. If you are in between sizes based on the measurements below, size down. If you are pregnant, base sizing on your pre-pregnancy size. The carrier is meant to fit snugly!

For the K’tan Active, wash the carrier before wearing and stretch it while wet, then hang to dry to minimize shrinkage.

I only wore this a few times because it was too small even though I followed the sizing recommendations on the box. It can seem over whelming the first time you try to use it but don't give up. It's fairly simple after the first couple tries. Practice with a doll or stuffed animal first!

The best, didn’t have to worry about how to tie it with a cranky baby.

Great for keeping baby close. It takes some practice but is not overly complicated.

Very breathable so baby and parent won’t get too hot. Enough stretch to accommodate growing baby without getting baggy.

Pre-pregnancy size is too small.

Make sure you get the right size and you are average build for your size. Petite shoulders aren’t a great fit. There was a small window of time when it fit best, when she was not too small not too big. Then she filled it up but wasn’t pulling as much on my shoulders. Maybe a little too stretchy for the pool.

So easy to use and great for air travel! No fuss wrap, my daughter loves it, easy to use in an airport, packs small and light.
