About 4 years ago, when my son was a newborn, I had a multitude of different slings and wraps that I used to tote him around. I never really got comfortable with any of them, as they were often hard to figure out how to use, difficult to put on in a pinch, and didn’t support my baby in a way that made me feel secure.
So when I had my third child, I was looking for a carrier or wrap that would solve all of these issues and make me a dedicated wrap wearer. I found it with the Baby K’tan!
Baby K’tan is a soft sling that works like a wrap, but without all of the wrapping. It is made of two loops of cotton which are connected by a third smaller loop called the Back Support Band. These loops are the foundation for many different positions that you can carry your child in. It’s sort of a cross between a soft sling and a traditional baby carrier.
Since my daughter is only 2 months old, I have only tried the Kangaroo position with her in the Baby K’tan. (However, there are six different positions you can use with your Baby K’tan!) When I tried using it for the first time , I followed the easy-to-use instructions in the manual. There are lots of pictures to help support you when learning how to use your Baby K’tan, as well as videos online! I found the Baby K’tan soft and supportive on my back, and my daughter was comfortable and well supported. I also like that it is made of a breathable cotton, which is great for the hot summer weather we are having right now.
As a nice bonus, the Baby K’tan comes in a matching pouch and has a matching newborn cap as well. These are little details that make this carrier even more special!
The Baby K’tan is sized, making the fit more comfortable for your body. It is also machine washable which makes spit up incidents easy to deal with!
