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!

This carrier/wrap/huggie/magical nap wrap works wonders for a new mom like myself that is not used to sitting around. I got really bad cabin fever after being home for 4 weeks with the baby. Not being able to easily do the dishes or vacuum after having friends and family over BUGGED me so much. Wrap my little one up in this and it was like LOOK MA NO HANDS! She's comfortable and cozy and I couldn't be happier! I also must say the customer service is IMPECCABLE!

I liked it because it was very easy to slip my baby into it, facing forwards or backwards. I felt uncomfortable using it before she was 6-weeks old because of all the warnings about making sure her chin wasn’t tucked too close into her chest (and there wasn’t a position where that wasn’t the case when she was so small). I used it until she was 7-months old: she got too heavy and it started hurting my back to carry her.

It was useful when the baby was little and needed a lot of support, but it doesn’t have enough support one the baby gets heavier- major shoulder pain from the weight.

The K'tan is east to use and so comfortable! Great for newborn-toddlers.

It’s not very easy to use, and can’t be used for preemies.

This was difficult to order in the first place, because you can’t take your measurements when pregnant (to determine what size). I wore it a few times but struggled to get the loops to lay just right, then I washed it once according to directions and it shrunk too much to wear again 😕

It’s my favorite carrier out of the 3 that I have. Very easy to use (no snaps or adjustments each time) and baby loves it! You can use it many different ways and I sometimes use it to cover while nursing too.

It wasn't too complicated to use, and was mostly super comfortable. My baby was teeny when he was born - 5.5lbs - and the K'Tan is recommended for 8lbs and up. I didn't feel comfortable carrying him around in it for the first few months, and then by the time he weighed enough to go in, he was heavy enough to make my back start hurting after a while when he was in it. And even though he has some ways to go before he reaches the upper weight limit, I find other carriers easier to maneuver and more comfortable. So the K'Tan was good for a small window, anyway!

This carrier was much easier to use than the wrap around boba!
