Here’s Kristin’s great review of a super cool baby carrier, the Baby K’Tan. Thanks so much to Baby K’tan for sending her the product to review! We love baby carrying!
Do you have lower back pain from carrying your baby everywhere? Do your shoulders ache from that sling that only rests on one shoulder? Do you need your hands free to keep up with your other children, to type, or to cook and clean? Do you want a soft, simple way to carry your baby without the annoying buckles and clasps of other carriers?
If so, the Baby K’tan baby carrier is truly a must have! I have a Baby Bjorn, but this is a more flexible front carrier and sling in one…with all of the benefits of both. The K’Tan provides a secure pouch in which to carry your baby from 8 pounds to 35 pounds, with a second loop of fabric for added support for your baby and your back! Unlike the Bjorn, it is simple to wear and place your baby inside without the help of another person.
Although it is incredibly easy to use with no latches, buckles, rings, snaps, zippers, or clasps, it does take some getting used to in order to use it for all 9 possible positions. However, the directions are easy to follow, with photos to guide you through each step! I’m sure once you have worn it a couple of times in the same position, the directions will no longer be necessary. It is machine washable and dryer safe, and made of an extremely soft natural cotton fabric. It’s also available in 100% organic cotton!
With the demands of an active three-year-old running around, this is a safe and comfortable way to carry my newborn around with me. And, I can even discreetly nurse him on the go while he is comfortably tucked inside. It allows me the freedom of having my hands free to do all of the tasks necessary for my other child, while bonding with my newborn at the same time! In fact, studies show that carrying a baby in a sling is good for the baby’s mental and emotional development! And, for those of you who are overwhelmed by the task of keeping up with older children while caring for a newborn, the Baby K’tan is a fantastic option!
With its two-loop structure, the Baby K’tan is perfect for carrying twins, and for creating necessary back support (unlike a traditional sling that places all the weight on only one shoulder). The K’tan even comes in its own storage pouch, which flips inside out to be a large sash/burp cloth. And, it comes with a matching hat (multiple colors for the K’tan are available from basic black to pure honey). The K’tan is also available in a 50% cotton, 50% mesh blend for more breathability in the heat! The Breeze Baby K’tan is available today–just in time for the heat wave.
The Baby K’tan. A comfortable, breathable, baby carrier that won’t make you lose your mind trying to get the darn thing on. That’s something Mama’s just gotta have.
