Baby K’Tan Baby Carrier Wrap…

A wrap without the wrap!

My sister-in-law and I were having a conversation about baby carriers/wraps and discussing our favorites. We both agreed on a particular wrap, but the inconvenience of hauling around yards of fabric made it difficult to bring and put on during trips to the store etc. We both agreed there had to be a better option out there… and so I began the hunt. I had less than 2 months before my nephew would arrive and I was on a mission.

One day while cleaning out my email box I saw mention of the Baby K’Tan Carrier. It looked similar to the style I was hunting for, so I dug deeper.

It features:

  • multiple wearing positions
  • no wrapping or buckling
  • Innovative double loop design – cross between a sling, wrap and structured carrier
  • Built in back support band – second loop provides additional support and security
  • Carries infants and toddlers in multiple positions, from 8-35 lbs
  • 100% natural cotton

The Baby K’Tan arrived quickly (we choose eggplant) and we excitedly took it out to inspect it. The cotton was super soft, the color was perfect (not too purple) and the design was intriguing! I wondered how it folded so neatly inside the bag… so again I explored deeper.

After unrolling everything out I found that the sash has a built in pocket that everything rolls back up into. It was very simple to do and I figured it out first try. I could see quickly pulling this out during a quick trip to the local mart and easily tossing it back into the diaper bag.

You can see the unique looped design above that makes putting on the Baby K’Tan a breeze. If you watch the video below you will see how quickly (and easily) a Baby K’Tan can be put on. You can also check out the different holds on their website as well.

024The Baby K’Tan is a fabulous piece of equipment that is a must have for parents of newborns through toddlers. If purchased at birth, you have a wrap to nuzzle closely with your baby while freeing your hands. It can be worn as a structured carrier as your baby grows. It’s truly a multi-use item that I wish I had had access to when Emma and Ethan were small enough for a carrier. When baby wearing is easy and comfortable for mom (and baby) it happens more often. Baby wearing promotes attachment, bonding, helps the baby regulate his own physical responses, it exercises his vestibular system which controls balance, babies are happier and you can learn your babies communication from closer contact (facial expressions etc).

My nephew made his appearance a couple of weeks ago (yeah!). His Mommy just recently cracked out the Baby K’Tan for a trial run and was pleasantly surprised at her findings!

“The baby K’tan is SUPER easy to put on and take off. It literally took me 10 seconds. The material is very breathable, and Liam seemed to be pretty content and comfortable. (I will probably be using it more as he gets a little older. Right now he’s so small that it’s not that hard to just hold him… but I know I will be using the k’tan a lot in the coming weeks.)”

  49. Angela says:

    I have fallen in love with this carrier along time ago since a friend of mine has one, they have launched the newer breeze carriers now though that are awesome for hot weather since it has mesh/jersey type style fabric so it is more breathable and can let the breeze hit the baby a little easier. Also the fit is so much easier to determine. Plus there is no tieing or struggle with putting it on since it’s a simple slip over slip baby in go basically.

    I have been wanting a Baby K’Tan ever since I got pregnant with my second baby! The first time around I never found a comfy newborn carrier — and while I loved the Ergo once my daughter was large enough to feel secure in it, I didn’t find it as cozy for everyday puttering around the house and garden the way I think the Baby K’Tan would be. I keep entering to win it in various giveaways but so far no luck. I’m due in May so I hope this is the one!

  76. Christina Skinner says:

    I’ve heard of these but thought it was the same thing as a Moby. I’m surprised to see that although it’s similar, it’s a totally different design. Very cool!

  107. Jessica says:

    I am a first time mother with a severely Colicky newborn who also suffers from Milk Protein allergies. When my little Zoe began displaying her first signs of colic I really didn’t know what to do. I read everything on colic and all the articles and research I have found all talk about the five S’s (Swaddle, Sway, side positioning, sucking and shushing) to help with the discomfort of colic. So far each of these have proven to work except the Swaddling, I can’t swaddle to save my life. My DH on the other hand seems to be an expert. But, because he works excessive hours just to allow me to stay at home with our daughter I can’t expect his morning swaddling to last throughout the day. I did stumble on the fact that my little one finds comfort most when she is laying on my chest. Since I am unable to hold her for long periods of time I began to use the infantino carrier I have to keep her close, I don’t really like keeping her in the carrier because she does not have good head and neck strength. I began to do more research on carriers that provide the comfort needed to soothe my little one along with the neck and head support required for my daily movements. The Baby K’Tan has so far rated number one not only in both comfort and support but also in price. I still think it’s expensive but after seeing the price for the ergo I will say it is not that bad. I have never seen the Baby K’Tan, only what I have viewed online, I hope it is what everyone says it is because at this point it seems the colic is stealing my precious moments with my little Zoe.
