Baby K’tan Carrier Review & Discount/Coupon Code

Baby Ktan 1 box

A Baby K’tan Carrier is a wrap, only without all the wrapping! Stick with me and you’ll see what I mean.

The carrier consists of two loops attached to each other, and a sash for added security and support. The sash is also the carrying bag!

I love baby wraps because they are easy to use, comfy for baby and distribute weight evenly. The downside is that they are quite long and if you have to wrap it while you’re out and about, it can end up dragging on the ground (super gross if it’s raining.) The Baby K’tan works the same way as a wrap, but it goes on differently.

Put the loops together and put them over your head with the support band (the small loop that attaches the two big loops together) behind your neck.

Put your arms through the loops, then move the one furthest from your body off of your shoulder and down around your waist.

Make a pocket for the baby, slide baby in and spread the fabric wide.

Bring the other loop up and spread wide over baby.

Make sure the support band is at the center of your back and that the fabric is spread wide over your shoulders. This ensures the weight is evenly distributed for maximum support.

Now you’re all set to wear a baby from 8-35 pounds! All the comfort of a baby wrap without all the wrapping. The Baby K’tan is 100% cotton knit with one way stretch. Even if it seems tight at first, the fabric enables the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier to stretch slightly to conform to you and your child.

One thing I personally see as a downside is that the Baby K’tan is a sized carrier. You choose your size based on the wearer’s fitted t-shirt size. Your size doesn’t change based on baby’s age or weight. This is a negative to me because my husband and I would each need our own carrier, and those of us that are great at gaining weight during pregnancy (but not as great at losing it) might need more than one size. The sizing info says if you fall between sizes, or if you are under 5’2″ (I am), choose the smaller size. So, I went with an XS based on my pre-pregnancy size, even though I’m more of a small right now (at 3 weeks postpartum as of the date I’m writing this.) The other negative is for wraps in general; you can’t put it on/take it off while holding the baby. Not a big deal but still makes a sling more convenient for me to use sometimes.

    I’m looking to order the Baby K’tan in sage green size large but I was trying to save some money. Do you have a coupon code that hasn’t expired that you can share with me?
