When I was pregnant with my second child, I was really nervous because I didn’t know how I was going to manage with 2! I thought, what if I had to tend to my older child and my little one was crying? How could I hold the new born baby and still get stuff done?
I had a inexpensive baby carrier for my first child but I didn’t like it because it didn’t have much back support and so I wouldn’t be able to hold my baby for long periods of time in it. Short walks with my inexpensive carrier were not even tolerable.
With that in mind, I wanted to try a different type of carrier, the wrap kind. I’ve seen other moms with baby wraps and it seemed a bit intimidating, with all the long pieces of fabric that you have to wrap round and round. It made me wonder if it was actually safe and secure and worth the money. I didn’t want to spend more than 100 dollars on something that I didn’t like using.
I stopped by a local baby store and they recommended the Baby K’Tan. I have baby no.4 on the way and I plan on using it again. Here’s why I love the Baby K’tan and why I highly recommend it!
It’s made out of 100% cotton. East to stuff into a diaper bag. Doesn’t take much space. It’s soft and comfortable for you and for baby and stretchy (but not too stretchy). The sash also doubles as a storage pouch!
It also works as an infinity scarf!
If your baby is in the stroller and you’re not using the wrap, simply leave the loops around your neck and it doubles as an infinity scarf. My Baby K’tan comes in black so it looks great as a scarf. When you’re ready to carry baby again, you’re carrier is ready to use!
I bought my Baby K’tan about 5 years ago and back then it was around 60 bucks Canadian! Not bad at all! At less than 100 bucks, I thought it was a great deal! Lots of baby wraps cost more than 100 bucks! Perfect gift idea as well for the expectant mom!
It’s super easy to use!
There are only two parts, the loops and the sash! There are tons of YouTube videos that you can watch to show how easy it is to carry your baby in the Baby K’tan. If you watch this video here, you’ll see it’s quite easy to use!
It’s easy to clean!
Simply wash it in cold water and dry on low heat in the delicate cycle. Cleaning it is a really a cinch!
You can carry baby in different positions!
You can carry baby in forward facing or in the hug position! Those are my two favourite ways to wear the baby K’tan. It’s also suitable for a newborn!
Those are the main reasons why I love using the Baby K’tan. I’m comfortable in it. I can carry baby around in it for a long time. I took my 6 month old to Disneyland and it kept baby close to me and she was comfy the whole time. Babies fall asleep so easily in it because they are cuddled so closely to you. I can wear it for long periods of time without my back hurting. It really is easy to use! I like the way it looks. It’s not complicated to put on at all and the price is right! I hope this was helpful! It’s also a great gift for new moms! Worth the money for sure! This is the older model, but I’m sure it hasn’t changed much since then!
