Double-Loop Design for Easy Positioning and Privacy

Invented by parents for parents and caregivers, the Baby K'tan Carrier has a unique double-loop design that makes carrying your baby more secure, provides privacy for nursing moms, and simplifies the process of putting it on and taking it off.

The Baby K'tan is lightweight and compact like a sling, yet goes over both shoulders to evenly distribute a child's weight like a structured carrier. Wearing the Baby K'tan is a simple matter of placing the two loops across your body and then around your baby in different ways, depending on which carrying position you use.

Six Positions for Support and Development

This carrier offers six different positions to accommodate growing children. The Kangaroo position is for preemies and newborns up to four months, and holds the baby close to the wearer's heart, facing in for head support. The Hug position is for babies who have started stretching their legs--it keeps them facing the wearer, but provides a space for each leg to extend.

When babies have full head control (around five months old), there are several available positions to try depending on their needs and your comfort level. The Adventure position keeps both legs and arms free while the baby faces forward. Explore position is a forward-facing version of the Kangaroo--the baby is cocooned in the fabric, but has more head control. In both of two different hip positions, you'll spread the fabric wide to create a comfortable and secure seat while giving your child more upper body range of motion.

Safe for Growing Babies

No matter which position you choose, your baby's mouth and nose are always kept visible and clear of fabric. When adjusting the carrier around young babies, you should be able to fit two fingers between your baby's chin and chest for safety. If your baby doesn't yet have complete head control, simply use one of the loops to provide additional head support.

Adjustable Back Support for Wearer

The Baby K'tan provides plenty of back support. It sits on both shoulders to take stress off the back, and also includes an adjustable back-support band that makes it easy to shift weight distribution.

Gentle, 100 Percent Cotton Cloth

Designed to be gentle on a baby's sensitive skin, the Baby K'tan is made of soft, 100 percent natural cotton that's free of harmful chemicals, formaldehydes, and azo dyes. It's also machine washable and dryer safe.

I just received the carrier and simply love it! I wish I had it from day one as it is very helpful in carrying baby at home. My son is 5 weeks old and Baby K'tan works great.

Some pros:
- very easy to use (I saw demos online while waiting for delivery and got the hug, cradle and kangaroo positions right away), I can use it much faster than buckle carriers,
- the sizing is correct, right now I'm 5'6'' and around 145 lb, but my pre pregnancy size is between 6 and 8 (130-135 lb), and size Small is perfect. Although after washing and drying it shrunk and it was to small for me, it stretched out. next time I will air dry, because baby cried and it was squished. The sizing seems correct but I keep thinking if will fit when the baby will grow, but K'tan website ensures that will be ok, especially with different positions,
- the material is very soft and keeps my 1 month old snuggle to me. Cradle position seems to cramp the baby but he doesn't mind, so far because of no neck control yet we both love the hug position. He is very curious and loves to see the world, and at the same time when falls asleep can be hold tight,
- carrier feels very comfortable and truly hands free; it feels the most natural from all the carriers I've tried,
- the sash is also a storage tote at the same time so it is easy to carry the whole thing in a diaper bag, matching hat is cute but doesn't fit my 5 weeks old yet even after washing and drying (size 0-3 months; but he will grow to it eventually),
- I can do a lot stuff at home with my son next to me, he sleeps better and longer.

The cons:
- the description says it can be used on preemies but baby k'tan website and instruction booklet says to use from 8-42 lb (the box says 5-35 lb, so I don't know which one is right).

Color Name: Warm CocoaSize Name: Small Verified Purchase
This is my third sling, and I really like it. My other two are both pouch slings: a Hotsling and an adjustable Mayawrap pouch sling. You can't beat a pouch slings for pure simplicity of use. However, I think the Baby Ktan baby carrier is quickly becoming my favorite. It is essentially two pouch slings tied together, plus a sash to use as extra support for some of the positions. Here are the pros and cons:
Pros: Very versatile -- wear your baby like you would in a regular pouch sling, or wear her facing forward or backward like you would in a Baby Bjorn. There are also hip carry and back carry positions -- 8 positions in all. Very comfortable -- the stretch cotton is wonderfully soft and in nearly all the positions, you can have the carrier go over both shoulders. This was a big selling point for me because I find that my back aches after about an hour or so in a regular pouch sling. In the Baby Ktan, with both shoulders carrying the load, it's much easier. Packable -- much less bulk than a Baby Bjorn or other structured/padded carrier; about the size of two pouch slings. Large weight range -- I can also put my 30 lb. toddler in the hip carry position with this thing. Machine wash, tumble dry.
Cons: A little bit of a learning curve and not quite as quick and easy to use as a pouch sling. Takes up about twice as much room as a pouch sling in the diaper bag.
One buying tip: Pay close attention to the sizing recommendations, and if you are at all in between sizes, get the smaller one. The material is quite stretchy. I bought a small to begin with, but returned it for an extra small, which fits me better. I'm 5'4" and average weight.

Color Name: Sage GreenSize Name: Medium Verified Purchase
I ordered the Baby K'tan in Sage green back in 2010 to use with my first daughter, Kalina. I knew that I wanted to wear her based on all the benefits I'd read about, plus it just made sense that it would be easier for me to go about life hands-free while keeping her close and happy. I researched a lot of carriers to include all the Infantino line, the Moby Wrap, the Maya Wrap, Baby Bjorn and Ergo Baby. One of Kalina's hips wasn't completely formed so she needed to spend a lot of time in the "froggy" position (legs open, like a frog's rear legs). That meant the Maya Wrap was out because it only offers two positions: sling style (laying across my body, which would put her legs tightly together), or with baby riding on the hip (not appropriate for a newborn with no head control). The Baby Bjorn requires a minimum weight of 8lbs, so I wouldn't be able to use it for Kalina as a newborn since she was only 7lbs. Also, I read a lot of information on how the Baby Bjorn doesn't offer enough support for the baby because of the small "seat" in the carrier. This could cause discomfort in the babys hips. That's the last thing Kalina needed for her bad hip, so the Bjorn was out, too. That left the Moby Wrap and the Baby K'tan (the baby can be placed facing the wearer, in the froggy position). I bought the K'tan on Amazon and while I waited for it to be shipped (we are military stationed overseas, and sometimes the MPO is slow)I also bought a used Moby Wrap. The Moby Wrap took a couple of times of practice to get on correctly. It's not that the steps are difficult, but the LOOOOOOOONG piece of fabric dangling and getting tangled was a bit tricky. I got the hang of it and Kalina felt comfortable inside, while I felt comfortable wearing her.Read more ›
