This wrap has seriously been a game changer since I had my first child! I just slip her in the carrier and am able to get my chores done around the house and keep her happy at the same time! I highly recommend the K'Tan Active especially for when your baby is little and wants to cuddle with you! I also love the fact that it's super easy to get on and off!

Active is the way to go when you are buying it for NYC weather. The Active is made of relatively smooth and breathable fabric. In the summer, my baby still gets a little bit sweaty in the Active; in the winter it is just right if I dress her properly. I find the Original fabric a bit too warm and it clings to your clothes so it is very hard to adjust the carrier.
One universal good thing about the Ktan is that it is easy to put on and get the baby in and out of, it is great for catching a taxi with the baby. I usually catch the taxi, quickly put the ktan on and put baby in it, fold the stroller and get into the taxi. The baby clings close to my body and I wear her on me under the seat belt.
The con with the Ktan is that it is fixed size, I use an XS which is not adjustable to my husband's size, so only I can use this carrier.
When you pick the size keep in mind that the Active fabric is a bit more stretchy than the Original and the weigh of the baby will help stretch the carrier. I originally thought my XS was too small but when I put my baby in the baby's weight stretched the carrier a bit and it fit just right. I think picking the right size is crucial to the effectiveness and user experience of the BabyKtan carrier.

I ordered the baby k'tan active in black because my 3- week old wanted to be held all the time during the day. If she fell asleep in my arms, she would wake up pretty quickly. I tried the carrier for the first time last night when she was crying, but she was fed, changed, and getting attention. She fell asleep in ONE minute. She was so comforted and comfortable. She slept for 2 hours and I was super comfortable and able to get dinner and tidy the house. Again this morning she was fussing so I tried putting her in it (Kangaroo position) and she fell asleep in ONE minute again. I'm hoping her napping during the day will continue because she was such a happy baby since I started using it. It's even helping her not seek cluster feeding for comfort. I think it makes her feel like she's back in my tummy since she's so snug and close to me. New moms or moms looking to try something new- I highly recommend this! You will feel like you've got it all together for a few glorious moments. It is worth every cent and is very reasonably priced. Sizing was also accurate to their size chart. I like the active in black because the material is mesh/sporty and reminds me of basketball shorts. It also feels breathable to wear and I've gotten warm easily in pregnancy/postpartum. Thanks Baby K'tan! This is an amazing product. I can't believe how wonderful it is for us!

I like how easy it is to follow the instructions. The first time I put my son in it in the kangaroo position he went right to sleep. The next time I used the hug position and he seemed more comfortable. He is 7 weeks old, 10 lbs, and 22 inches long. The fabric is sturdy but light weight enough for Texas weather.

We did a ton of research for carriers prior to our little one arriving. We had a prenatal Ds diagnosis, so we knew a "hip healthy" product was important to us. I will admit, when I first saw the K'tan in stores, I was skeptical. It seemed too simple to be as great as it claims. The simplicity is actually the best part. No crazy wrapping, easy to use, easy to wash. The size charts are spot on, so don't size up. Breathable, fun colors. Can't wait to buy this for my sister who is due this fall.

I was worried about the size because the chart and reviews told me to go down a size I'm 5'4 and 159lbs so didn't believe I could fit a size small but I listened to other reviews and got the small and I am so glad I did. Anything bigger would have been to big.these stretch good and you want it snug to hold baby. Product came exactly when it said it would. Beautiful bright color I got the ocean blue and the fabric is soft and cool. It took me a few trys to get baby in my husband had to help me wasn't hard I just never used one before after a couple trys I'm a pro now I am so glad I don't have to worry about all that wrapping.came with a booklet that shows you different positions and a sash that can turn into a little bag very cute. Definitely worth a little extra money for both baby and I to be comfortable and looks good too. Im happy and baby is happy!

My newborn loves this carrier and it allows us to keep up with her 3 year old brother. It takes a couple tries when you first get it to figure out how to get your newborn properly positioned, but it's really not hard. I love that I can wear it in the car so that I can slip my daughter in right from her carseat. I would recommend sizing down if you're not sure. I'm 5'4" and 135lbs and ordered the XS.

Way more convenient than other wraps, I love ease of not having to tie it or do buckles. It is going to bbe so much easier to use with a newborn and two year old than any other carrier I've tried!
