    Posted by on Oct 4th 2017

    I love my baby k'tan active. Its so soft and cosy. My son can sleep in it for hours :)

  2. Easy to use! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 10th 2017

    This is the easiest wrap style carrier I have used, so much easier than the Moby! It takes seconds to put on & adjust & best of all baby loves it!

  3. best baby carrier by far!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 31st 2017

    I have tried almost every carrier out there and the baby k'tan active is the best one yet. My baby sweats all the time but with the active he doesn't sweat nearly as much it's truly amazing

  4. Perfect Fit 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 31st 2017

    I so love my son's baby ktan, he fits snuggled and perfectly. We used it more often around the house whenever I need to do some house chores and he can't be left behind. Baby ktan gives him comforts that he sleeps while his in it. Would totally recommend to all of the mommies out there.

  5. LOVE it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 26th 2017

    Was skeptical of wraps before I had my son. Now one month old--he absolutely loves Baby Ktan. So much more convienient than hauling a stroller around and he's snugged up to me wherever I go. Recommend to anyone. This wrap is the BEST.

  6. Very comfortable, love the color! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 24th 2017

    I love the Baby K'tan Active carrier! I just used it for the first time with my two month on and he loved it! I loved how comfortable it was, and how easy it was to follow the instructions on different ways to wear it. I also love the convertible strap to case to store it in. Great color, great fabric! I would highly recommend!

  7. Best for my son 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 11th 2017

    I bought this before giving birth.. and he loves to be in it... unfortunately he out grown his ktan...

  8. Believe the hype! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 11th 2017

    Great product. Made well with a creative design that's simple to use. It serves a wonderful purpose by keeping my daughter close to me and allowing me to use my hands and have a nice distribution of her weight so as not to fatigue me. I use it around the house and for walks around the neighborhood

  9. Great Carrier 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 31st 2017

    I absolutely love the Baby K'tan Active. The fabric is so breathable and I love how easy it is to use. Not having to worry about tying it and it coming undone has been a godsend for a new mom like me. I love the colors and actually have it in both blue and coral! Cannot wait to continue using this as my daughter grows!

  10. Amazing!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 26th 2017

    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!

  11. NYC Mom & baby 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 20th 2017

    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.

  12. Moms- order now!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 5th 2017

    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!

  13. Simple to use 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 16th 2017

    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.

  14. Perfect carrier for me! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 3rd 2017

    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.

  15. LOVE THIS! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 2nd 2017

    I love the Baby K'tan Active!! It's so lightweight and great for hot summer weather. The color is so bright and pretty. It's so convenient with no wrapping.

  16. so happy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 21st 2017

    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!

  17. BABY KTAN ACTIVE WEAR NICE!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 8th 2017

    I love the baby K'tan active especially the heat here in Texas this is a must have. Fits very well. I will definitely recommend this product to everyone. Very easy to put on.

  18. Awesome Carrier!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 5th 2017

    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.

  19. fantastic! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 2nd 2017

    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!

  20. Best Carrier Ever 5 Star Review
