      Comments about Baby Carrier - Black:

      I purchased the baby ktan in a size medium after reading reviews (even though according to the chart I was a small). My tshirt size is a medium so I went with that. Well, it was too big. It held my son fine but was too lose to support his head. I called diapers.com and they are sending me a small and UPS is picking up the medium for me. I got the k'tan with a coupon code so I didnt want to just return it. The rep I spoke to was so helpful, I just love this website! And can't wait to use my carrier in the correct size :)

        Comments about Baby Carrier - Black:

        I never used a wrap/sling of any type with my daughter who just turned two but figured I would need some help taking care of my new baby and chasing a toddler. I got this and a sling type carrier and find the K'tan works much better. It is easy to put on after a little practice, the pictures in the guide are great. My son was a big baby and I thought he would out grow it quickly but the K'tan just stretches to accommodate him as he grows. He is much more comfortable in it than the sling, and happily sits in it while I take the 2 yo to the park, go shopping, work around the house, you name it. I haven't mastered breastfeeding with it, but we're not even very good at doing it with a cover/blanket on so I don't know if I can blame it on the K'tan.

        The main drawback is you cannot share it with your spouse if they are not the same size. Hubby is way too big for my K'tan. I went by the size guide and even though it felt tight at first it stretches so baby will fit and after using it I think tighter is probably better for keeping baby more secure and comfy.

          Comments about Baby Carrier - Black:

          The k'tan carrier is so helpful with babies. It is so easy to use, comfortable and my baby loves it. I wasn't getting anything done bc I couldn't put my baby down without him crying, but as soon as he was in the k'tan I had two hands available and was able to get some stuff done! He also was bad about getting out of a swaddle blanket and difficult to get to sleep, but he loved to sleep all snuggled in the k'tan. The k'tan takes a minute to put on, I pop him in it as soon as I get out of the car to run errands and people everyone comment on how happy and cozy my baby looks and how comfortable and convenient the carrier is for me. It is soooo much easier than carrying him around in the car seat. I love my k'tan carrier and don't go anywhere without it.

            After trying the Balboa swing (and promptly returning it) I thought I'd give this one a whirl. And ooh am I glad! My baby (a preemie, fyi) settled into this as soon as I got it on. And unlike others, I didn't feel as if it swallowed him up. It's super easy to use and I look forward to growing into it!

              Comments about Baby K'Tan Baby Carrier - Black:

              This is the third sling/carrier I've purchased, and by far the best one. It takes a try or two to get the hang of how to wear it properly, but it is very comfortable to wear and makes carrying baby around very easy. Get the half mesh one if it's summer or you're in a hot/humid area because I've noticed I and the baby will get hot if I'm wearing it outside in warmer weather. I love this sling and definitely recommend it.

                I used the Moby for my son, and I thought I loved that.... until I bought this for my newborn daughter. Gone are the days of me wrapping long wads of fabric around me while baby's crying; I find the K'Tan super easy and quick to put on. I got the hang of it right away! It's also MUCH more flattering to not have all that bulky fabric wrapped around my waist. I also find it great for breastfeeding. I'm not one of those expert BF'ing moms that can discreetly feed; I usually have to retreat to another room, which isn't always convenient. My daughter can feed from me while I do errands around the house, or while I'm out and about, and she's in the perfect position, and I'm covered up. TMI but I'm feeding her in the carrier as I type this! haha. Love it; going to buy it in another color :)

                  I love the versatility of the K'tan. I started using it when my LO was just 1 month old and we haven't put it down since! We started out with the kangaroo position and moved on to the hug a few months later. Now, his favorite position is explore so he could see everything. I make sure he has a comfortable seat spread out to his knees to avoid any "dangling."

                  Comments about Baby Carrier - Eggplant:

                  I did a lot of research before choosing this carrier/wrap for my 3 month old daughter and I am not disappointed! I love that it is made to fit your size and does not have unnecessary extra and awkward fabric to deal with (I think it looks more flattering then your typical wrap). It was a bit tricky at first, but using a mirror helps. It took me a few tries out in public without one to get her (and myself) situated in it but once she was settled she loved it! After a while it did put strain on my back...but nothing bad. I would rather my back slightly ache then have my arms give out from holding her the whole time! I defiantly recommend this sling for any mom who loves the idea of baby carrying made simple without a bunch of fuss.

                      My husband bought this based on his size-- got the M-- and it's great for me too (size 18, 38F when BF) except the sash is a little short. My baby loves it; it's great for when he needs to nap. He settles down in under 5 minutes. If I wear the carrier for longer than an hour or 2 it kills my back but it's great for short periods and isn't too hot like the ergobaby (which is better on my back and easier to get into).

                      The instructions were slightly confusing the first time but once we practiced a few times it's easy to get the baby into position quickly. My boy is 11.5 lbs, 24.5 inches and 8 weeks old with good head control.

                        i think this carrier is literally genius and i wish i had it with my first. i love how quickly i put it on how simple it is to use - which is a life saver with a screaming newborn. But i am also impressed with how comfortable it feels when it is on. the other day i wore my little guy in the K'tan for 5 hours and i totally didn't realize how much time has passed. This is my new favorite baby item.

                          I use this carrier when I do errands around the house so that my hands are free and I can get things done but my son is still with me. I like how easy it is to use and that it is made out of soft durable cloth. He likes that he gets to snuggle close to me. I think that it works really well but sometimes it sags lower than I would like. I need to be careful to position my baby so that he is not too low and facing into my chest and this is trickier than I thought it would be.

                            i have a wrap and a structured carrier, and was not in love with either. the moby was a pain in the butt to get on and the carrier was too much for me with all the buckles and such... i really wanted a wrap style that wasnt so overwhelming, so when i found the k'tan i bought it instantly! and i LOVE it! it's so much easier to use than the moby and is less fabric so its not as hot. we use it practically every day and it calms lo down instantly. he even starts to smile when he sees me putting it on.

                                  Comments about Baby K'Tan Baby Carrier - Black:

                                  When I first heard about this product I wasn't sure. But I decided to give it a try because it seemed to be a hybrid option between classic slings and front carriers. And now, after trying it, I think I was right. The ktan is the best of both worlds -- similar to the weight distribution and convenience of a Baby Bjorn, but with the benefits of a sling too -- softer, cooler, with more flexibility in positioning (not just the one vertical position facing in or out like a Bjorn...and it can go in the dryer, too!)...and withOUT all the complicated fabric you have to wind with slings etc., like a Moby wrap.

                                  It's true that it's kinda complicated to put on, -- but I watched the company's videos for the different positions 2-3 times each and that made it easy to figure out. As long as I put it on in front of a mirror, it's easy now. And my baby justs LOVES it! She is so content in it... And with my hands free to chase my older toddler, and the baby's weight evenly distributed on my shoulders and back, I am happy too!

                                    i just reviewed the sage green and realized i own a black - basically this carrier rocks! no matter what color. it's easier than my wrap, quicker and lighter, and super comfy. use it with my second baby but WISH i had it 4 years ago with my first.
