Baby K'Tan Review and Giveaway! {New Year, New Babies, New Mommies of 2!}


I purchased the Baby K’Tan baby carrier when Noah was just an infant. It was my first experience baby wearing. I knew absolutely nothing about it but knew I needed to get some things done and Noah wanted nothing more than to be held all the time!  The Baby K’tan carrier is like a wrap but without all the wrapping. It’s like a ready-to-wear wrap, which was perfect for me because I was clueless when it came to baby wearing.

Baby K’Tan was started by two couples, the Chesals and the Wernicks,  who were close friends and each has a child with special needs as well as two other children. Not finding the specific type carrier or sling they wanted to use to carry their babies, they began to create different designs to meet their needs. Once they created something that was easy to use, stylish, and comfortable, Baby K’Tan was born!

The Baby K’Tan can be used with babies 8-35lbs. It is a unique double loop system that requires no wrapping and can be worn in a number of different positions. It’s machine washable and dryer safe. It makes it possible to breastfeed discreetly while wearing your baby and can help calm fussy babies and still allow mommy to get things done! Check out some other great features of the K’Tan and compare it to other popular carriers  in this Comparison Chart!

Like I said earlier, I got this with Noah and didn’t really know anything about baby wearing but needed something so I could get stuff done without constantly having to hold Noah. The Baby K’Tan was super easy to use and figure out. After watching the instructional videos I was able to easily get Noah in the carrier and wear him around the house! Noah was about 2 months old when I started wearing him and didn’t care much for being  worn like I had hoped so I didn’t wear him as much as I would have liked. With Isaac I started wearing him right from the beginning and he seems to enjoy it very much! I wear him all over the place!

I first wore Isaac in the Baby K’Tan when he was 3 days old.  I wore him to his first checkup and it was great! I love that the K’tan is so easy to use and get baby in. It’s simple to just slip on and put baby in even from the car! I love that he was so close to me and I could even cover him slightly so he wasn’t exposed to all the germs out there. I love that I can nurse him while he’s in the Baby K’Tan and can even do it discreetly! The Baby K’Tan makes it easy for me to wear my baby wherever I need to go! I can slip it on for a trip to the grocery store, or wear him around the house when he’s being fussy and I need to get stuff done!

  8. I love the different size options. I know I won't use a wrap as my child gets bigger because I'm so petite so having the option of a smaller size means less overall bulk!

  44. It looks so soft and easy to use! I used a carrier with my first (hated it) and a sling with my second (liked it, but had to wait until he was older) this just looks so wonderful to use with them when they are new which is what I wanted to do all along...

    ReplyDelete

  49. I saw a friend use one and I fell in love with how much more easy and convient it looks rather than a long wrap which I currently use. I love snuggling my little one!

    ReplyDelete
  50. My favorite thing about the Baby K'Tan is that you get virtually all the same carries as a traditional wrap without having to wrap. That makes SUCH a difference when you're not home and don't want to drag ends on the ground. Definitely a step up from the Moby!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love that it doesn't have the extra fabric that the Moby does.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I like that there are MULTIPLE wearing positions to suite each baby/mom preference!
