Description


This carrier is ideal for parents who can’t face the usual 10-plus steps required to use a wrap carrier, but still want the snuggly closeness of a wrap. Pared down to three steps that even the sleep-deprived can handle, the Baby K’tan goes on quickly in three easy steps and comfortably works in up to six different positions. (It does require some practice to master the steps of looping the material into various positions.) It also has a carrying pouch that doubles as a supportive sash for your back.

Like most wraps, the K’tan is best for smaller babies. It does not have structured support to carry heavier babies for long periods of time.

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. The carrier size generally corresponds to your fitted (tight) t-shirt size. (See details in specs below.) If you are 5’2” or under it is recommended to choose a smaller size. If you are in between sizes based on the measurements above, it is recommended to choose the smaller size. If you are pregnant, base sizing on your pre-pregnancy size. The carrier is meant to fit snugly!

Comfortable, could wear baby for naps for his first 3 or so months. It’s great for wearing around the house, but not great for wearing baby out (he would get really sweaty). I ended up also getting the Ergobaby for outdoor walks and errands, which is growing well with the baby.

Very easy to use and convenient.

So much easier to use than a traditional wrap, but with the same flexibility!

It does not feel safe or secure and I definitely have the correct size. I had difficulty using this without help from my husband.

It needs to be tight but it’s just too tight for me. I nurse and the pressure on my breasts causes clogs. So i don’t wear it.

I ordered a small but was only able to use it for two months, then my son and I didn't fit into it anymore. It was good while it lasted but it doesn't make me want to order another one.

The sizing. It asks you use your pre-pregnancy size to determine which size to use, but my breasts are significantly larger than pre-pregnancy, therefore making this difficult to wear and find an accurate size. I was a size 6, so I got a Small; it was tiny. Then ordered a Medium, and still had issues.

I have always been a fan of babywearing, and have tried it in many forms. This sling is the easiest, best one hands down for small babies. I watched the tutorial (twice) and have been a pro ever since. The washable, soft fabric and one-piece design was perfect for my baby's early months.

Too difficult to use! Awkward configuration.
