Why I Love My Baby K’tan Baby Carrier/Wrap

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!
