The Baby K'tan Baby Carrier is a multi-functional, ready-to-wear wrap that keeps your infant or toddler safe and cozy, while supporting your back. Made of 100 percent cotton and free of harmful chemicals, formaldehydes, and azo dyes, this doctor-recommended baby carrier provides the positions and benefits of a sling, wrap, and carrier all in one. It's incredibly easy to use, and unlike some carriers, the Baby K'tan features no buckles, snaps, rings, or hardware. The Baby K'tan Baby Carrier is a great way for on-the-go caregivers to take their children with them knowing that they're comfortable and protected. It comes with a carrying bag and instruction booklet.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

This carrier wasn't for me. Baby K'Tan is an improvement on the Moby Wrap, which I had to wrap around myself enough times to feel like a mummy (no pun intended). Read morePublished 1 hour ago by Aimee Dale

A little hard to get the baby in and out if by myself at first but she loves being snuggled in it. I think it's a little warm to use in Florida in the summer though. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Lauren Oakley

Not good. Baby hates it. The images you see are very deceiving. In reality, it is all wrinkled and twisted fabric. Very uncomfortable for both parent and baby.Published 4 days ago by Alex Koval
Takes some practice to get the baby comfortable, but it's so much easier to use than other wraps. It takes less than a minute to get the wrap on and the baby in. I love it.Published 5 days ago by Jennifer S.
Ok.. I have tried out SO many products like this. Baby bjorn, ergo, a ton of wraps, etc. I really, truly, think this one is the easiest to put on for a newborn. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Kady

Husband was convinced he'd hate the ring sling I used and refused to try the Mai tai. So he picked this thing. It worked alright, I guess. A hassle to put on and put baby into. Read morePublished 6 days ago by AppLady
