Moby VS Ktan
on March 25, 2017
This review reflects my own unbiased opinion and experience with the Moby VS the Baby K'Tan. I purchased both with my own money.
-Instantly makes a crying baby go to sleep. Baby was very, very cozy in there.
-Two side panels of newborn "hug" position allows to secure baby's head quite well against your chest. Better then the K'Tan can.
-Because of the design and how you wrap it, baby ends up being very, very snug in there. Very well supported.
-Suuuuuper long fabric does not make this a travel friendly wrap. If I wanted to take the baby to the store, I'd have to put the wrap on before leaving the house, then put baby in it once in the parking lot. The fabric is simply too long to don it in the parking lot.
-Multiple fabric panels results in a very warm environment. I found baby had to be in a short sleeved onesie to maintain normal temp. This is in February, in Washington State, where it is chilly outside.
-The long fabric design is also cumbersome when you want to put it on quickly at home (to soothe a screaming baby for example)
Ultimately, I ended up purchasing a Baby K'Tan because i wanted something quicker and simpler to take on and off, and that was "put on in the parking lot" friendly.
The K'Tan also makes my infant fall asleep very quickly. It is very easy to put on in under a minute but it is not as comfortable as my moby. Her head is not as well supported so I tend to have to keep one hand on her head if I am active while wearing it. I like that the K'Tan comes in Active and Breeze, which incorporates a mesh fabric that makes the whole thing a lot cooler to wear.
Both are great
Both put infant to sleep in very snug environment
Moby is more comfortable and I feel a bit more secure for baby, but a bigger pain to put on and not travel friendly
K'Tan is slightly less comfy, slightly less stable then the moby but compensates for that by being super convenient to put on and off.
I will probably keep both, although I find myself using my K'Tan more.
