Favorite carrier!
April 3, 2014
After unsuccessfully using a moby, and ergo, and a Bjorn with my 5 month old I was feeling kind of desperate to find something more snuggly that did not require crazy flexible arms or master oragami skills. My baby is a big snuggler and the straps of the ergo just dug into her face when she looked around. The K'tan is soft on her face, really easy (and fast) to get her in, and she seems very cozy in it (never napped in the others and passed out 3 times already in it!). It's really comfy for me to carry my 18 lb baby which is very helpful and the sash/pouch is so convenient to put away (and it takes up almost no space once it's away!). I love this carrier!

Seemed great but...
June 19, 2015
for some reason my baby did not like this carrier. He loves the Baby Bjorn instead. I think I also bought the wrong size. I would wear a medium in women's wear but the medium is too big and baby does not fit snugly. I should have gone for a small. The organic natural fabric is very soft and nice, but of course once you wash it in preparation for baby's arrival you can't return it. Even though it is light coloured and organic, the fabric is still also quite thick and I think baby would be too hot in summer. Hard to judge what size you might need when you a pregnant and have a big belly! I would wait until after baby arrives before buying a wrap.
Cons:
runs big - would wait until after baby arrives until you buy to ensure sizing is correct.

I did my best with this carrier but, sadly, it never worked for me. It gave me terrible shoulder and back pain. It was highly recommended but I couldn't make it work for me.

A great carrier for the first year
February 17, 2015
This carrier holds your baby similar to the popular Moby wrap, but it doesn't require all the wrapping around. It is quick and easy to put on. It provides a lot of support around my back and shoulders, making it comfortable to wear for many hours. I like how it gently cradles my newborn and seems to hold him just right. I also own a Ergobaby 360, which is also a great carrier, but I definitely prefer the K'Tan for the first few months. An important thing to note is that the fabric stretches out. I actually like this feature, because it makes a more custom fit for me and my baby. After a few months when it gets too stretched out, I wash it and put it in the dryer to shrink it up to the original size. However, the stretching means that it doesn't do well going between toddler and newborn-- it becomes too loose after using it with my toddler to snuggly hold my newborn unless I wash/dry it again.
Pros:
Gently cradles small babies, compact (can easily fit in a diaper bag or around stroller handle), easy and quick to put on
Cons:
Hot during the Summer; is not good to go between toddler and then newborn because it stretches

Perfect for infants

I got this when my daughter was about four months old and I feel like she was a little too big for it however I think it would be so great for newborns.

Great carrier for newborns!!
June 13, 2013
My daughter and I LOVED this carrier! She goes right to sleep every time I put her in it. My favorite thing about the carrier is that it's so great on the go. It's light and I can ball it up and keep it in the diaper bag. It's easy for running errands, I can put her in it, take her out, and put her back in easily without rewrapping (like with a moby). I took this on a plane and it made the flight so easy- I just put her in it during the flight, both of us slept and I didn't have to worry about holding onto her.
Cons:
Hot in summer Best for younger(lighter) babies
Best Uses:
On the go Airplane trips

Love so much, have bought two.
June 10, 2013
Truly one of my favorite baby products of all time. Love the versatility, and baby loves being worn in this one, not others. One shouldered slings pull on our back, while this one distributes weight equally. This is the first carrier I have used, in all my baby years, that doesn't give me backaches and headaches. Also love that it is two attached loops instead of one long piece if fabric that you have to wrap. Putting this on is a breeze, and I can easily do it one handed. Sure, it will shrink if you put it in the dryer - it's cotton. It also stretches right back out. K'tan's site says to order down if in-between sizes, and I found that to be true. Love it so much, I have now bought two colors!

it shrinks alot!!
April 29, 2013
be careful buying this product the sizing is way off and it shrinks a ton. the box days to wash before using but when I did and realized it was to small Albee would not take it back! Referred new to the manufacturer. Baby K'tan did offer to exchange or but I still find this wrap awkward A's hard to use. The material over my shoulder is to arrive and slips down, covers half my arm and I do not use it. Baby got super hot in it as well!

Sizing is key!
February 2, 2013
I bought the Baby K'Tan because I wanted the feel of a wrap without the hassle of learning how to wrap. I bought the correct size for me (XS) but I could never get a snug fit on my newborn. The cradle hold was unsafe for us because his chin would touch his chest and it was very difficult to move around for fear he would slouch down further. I was more confident in the safety of the kangaroo carry (tummy to tummy), but I still couldn't get a snug enough fit. (When you bend over, you shoudn't feel baby pulling away from your body.) I always used the optional sash to tighten down every carry I attempted. About 5 or 6 weeks after he was born, I decided to try a stretchy wrap, and I never looked back. A stretchy wrap (such as the Boba or Moby or Lovey Duds) is not very difficult to learn, you can make it as tight as you need to, one size fits all, and once you know how to do it, it becomes second nature. I think the convenience of the K'Tan could work for some, but the fit must be snug, and if you are a small person like I am, you may have a difficult time finding an appropriate size.
Pros:
Easy to put on Stylish
Cons:
Difficult to size

So easy to use
February 1, 2013
I had tried a number or wraps and carriers before i finally found the k'tan and fell in love. the k'tan is just really easy to put on and i don't have to wrap it and have the ends dragging on the ground and getting dirty. it is very comfortable and soft and can be thrown in the wash will my little one's clothing.
Pros:
easy to use not too much fabric to deal with washable comfortable
Cons:
need more color options
