Baby K'Tan Review and Giveaway

Ever since I had my first child twelve and a half years ago I have practiced attachment parenting, before I even knew there was such a thing. After our fifth child I started hearing about slings. I mean yes I had one of those awful strap on Walmart carriers I never used, but slings, hmmm. After looking into carriers I discovered there were so many styles. After our seventh was born I finally decided to take the plunge and try a wrap styled carrier. But my goodness was it a pain. I mean I loved it but all of that fabric! And when we were going somewhere I couldn't ever keep it off of the ground. Then I discovered the Baby K'Tan, and I fell in love!
 I can do everything with my K'Tan. I don't have to hold on to her like in a sling and guess what-No wrapping! It is a total Hallelujah moment for me!
I have literally worn her for hours in my K'Tan and she is not fussy and I am not sore. I have even wore her older sister when I had a sunburn with ease and comfort. My daughters who carry our youngest two on occasion are begging that I buy one their size. Yes I am seriously considering it, because the K'Tan is so easy to use. Oh and another great feature is, that it comes with a pouch that you turn inside out and it holds the carrier or you turn it and it is the sash you see tied around me that gives added safety support for the baby.
I love that there are multiple ways to wear the K'Tan as well. I can wear her in a wrap styled (which is my favorite) or a sling style. Which is easier to nurse her in.
The Baby K'Tan certainly makes life with seven kiddo's alot easier. Whether it's a day at the library, cooking supper, doing laundry, shopping, doing homeschool or just taking a walk. I love holding my baby close, not only does it feel nice to me, it keeps them from crying. Holding a little one all day, which I pretty much do, gets very tiresome, I get very sore. But now that I have my easy to use Baby K'Tan I can keep up with life and wear my little one without getting sore.
  I have heard the K'Tan being called a hybrid carrier, meaning the best of both a wrap carrier and a structured carrier, I can't agree more! I took a few things off of their website-I do hope they don't mind. I just wanted all of you to see how very cool the K'Tan is and how it works.
about the baby k'tan baby carrier






The Baby K'tan Baby Carrier is a uniquely designed soft cotton carrier. It can be worn in all the same positions as a wrap, without the hassle of wrapping! The K'tan is made of two loops of cotton which are connected by a third smaller loop called the Back Support Band. This ergonomic and stylish design allows the carrier to be worn in multiple positions, all without any complicated wrapping or buckling. It is a cross between a sling and a structured front baby carrier, offering the positions and benefits of both! The Baby K'tan offers unparalleled comfort, safety & convenience!


On the Baby K'Tan website  they have video's and PDF files to help you out if you need or want to watch. You can also personalize your carrier, and really how cool is that! It comes in sizes rather than one size which makes it safer and much easier and comfortable to wear.

look how snug he looks, to cute.

Notice the cute little hat that comes with every K'Tan you purchase. I can not say enough about this company and the carrier. I wish I had it with my first.

  1. I WISH I had one when mine were babies. They didn't become popular till my son was in preschool. That's when I first saw a mom with ine and it looked so cool and baby comfy.

  3. Haven't started "babywearing" yet. But I just had baby #3 and can't wait to start. Seems like a great way to be close to baby & keep my hands free :)

  7. I wear my baby because it keeps us close and makes life so much easier. Plus my babies love it. I'll be wearing my seventh baby soon too!

  8. I love my K'Tan for so many reasons, but especially because it makes shopping with 2 kids so easy. With my carrier I can wear the baby, and not have to worry about chasing (or losing) my 2 year old around the store because there's room for her to sit in the cart.

  9. You can even use the K'tan with preemies! LOVE that! (I had 2 preemies...had a moby with the first--way too much fabric, and the K'tan with the 2nd--so much better!)

  12. I wear my babies for a couple reasons! I LOVE to hold my babies but sometimes need an extra hand! I believe that babies are MEANT to be held and wearing them allows us moms to accomplish other tasks as well!

    I would love to win a Baby K'tan because we are expecting our 4th! I've heard SO many great things about "wraps" but have YET to try one! We have an Ergo (which I do like) but I am looking for something that is a little more comfy for newborns!

  17. I LOVE hearing all you momma's, what good momma's you all are wearing you baby! I always had a problem putting my babies down. Even when they are sleeping, lol. Yes we co-sleep. Baby K'Tan has certainly helped us stay close to one another. I get asked all the time, how I can get anything done, because everyone knows I always hold my baby. My answer-The K'Tan!!!

  21. My baby is due in September but I would wear my baby because its like snuggling them. To keep you close to them like they are in the womb is very comforting. Easy to go for walks instead of breaking out the stroller!

  22. Ooo I had a sleepy wrap but might have to up grade to one of these!! My daughter lived in a wrap, or my arms for the first year of her life. She has a brain injury and I've been told this is part of why she is doing so well!!
