Baby loves it!

This thing is really comfortable, even for extended periods of wear. My son would snooze away while being toted around. I only wish it supported higher weights so I could keep using it for longer.

Wraps up in a convenient carrying case to a small size that doesnt take up much space in the diaper bag. Easier to use than most other wraps.

Nice carrier, but my little one didn't like it. It seems to be best for the newborn phase. Fits as expected, is easy to get on and off, and seems like it will last. One downside is that the pieces get twisted easily when putting on, making it a bit challenging to straighten out before/while putting baby in.

Super easy to use and it fits well with my body. I got XS and it didnt have much problem. But one thing is that the fabric is thick so there were times when my baby would be sweating. Probably wouldnt be best during the summer times.

Perfect for our newborn. With our previous children we used the Ergobaby carrier which had an infant insert. There was too much fabric and we are starting summer so this Ktan carrier is absolutely fabulous. Breathable, secure and I can find my baby easily!
Great Infant Wrap

Great wrap without the actual wrapping. I used the moby with my 1st two children but there was always so much extra bulky material to tie once it was on. This is simple, easy to wear and fits comfortable without extra fabric to be bothersome.

The Ktan is a lot easier/convenient than the excessive wrapping of most newborn wraps. It takes a few times to get down, but has become a staple for these first few weeks with baby.

I knew I wanted a wrap or some type of baby carrier. My friend but me an actual wrap and I was intimidated by all this fabric. So I came across this wrap. Best thing I bought hands down. I bought it when my son was only a few weeks old. He is now 5 months and I am still using it. One thing that is key is ordering the right size. I was convinced an xsmall was never going to fit me right after having my son but it did perfectly. If you get a size to big the baby will hang to low. The material kinda stretches so it gives and isn't super tight. Once you wash it "shrinks" back up. I found sizing on the baby ktan website.
Great Product. Easy to use.

My wife loves this much better than the wraps. This is made so you just slip it on and put the baby in, no trying to get the wrap around you and tight when the baby is screaming.

I have a few BabyBjorns, but wanted a non-structured carrier for the first few months with baby. The K'Tan is easy to wear, and very comfortable. Sizing was accurate for me. Very happy with this purchase!

I ordered a large based on measurements. It fits my husband, who is broad and at the top end of the measurements, perfectly but is loose on me and I am the middle. Still love it. Baby has tummy troubles and this makes it easier to comfort her and mother my other two littles.

Seemed great but...
By Camille

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.
  • 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

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.
  • Gently cradles small babies, compact (can easily fit in a diaper bag or around stroller handle), easy and quick to put on
  • Hot during the Summer; is not good to go between toddler and then newborn because it stretches

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.

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.
