  1. Awesome product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 1st 2017

    Baby loves it. Easy to use and very comfortable for the baby. Fussy baby slept within few minutes. Will recommend this product to anyone without hesitation.


  2. Great easy wrap 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 31st 2017

    I wanted to wrap my baby but didn't want to spend time learning to use a single piece of fabric. The Baby k'tan is the best of all worlds -- it's really simple to put on (all by myself), and my baby loves being in it - he falls right asleep and is instantly soothed


  3. love it 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 25th 2017

    Love this! It fits very snug and takes a few times to get the hang of it! Definitely worth it!


  4. i love k'tans! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 22nd 2017

    This is my third baby k'tan. I love the easy comfortable way they let me wear my babies. I wore the first until he was at least two and started wearing my second before he was two weeks old. Both of them slept easily but also enjoy(ed) looking around at the world from their snuggly seat.

    The only problem is sizing. Based on the chart on the box, I first bought a medium. When I realized it was too big, I tried to have a tailor reduce the size, but the seems failed. So, I bought small organic cotton one. It stretched too much unless I pour it in the dryer very regularly. But my son was big enough that it worked well enough. But it clearly let the new baby sag too much, so I now have an xs, which seems to work well, but is pretty tight when getting him in our out, so we shall see how it works in the long term. I still live the k'tan fort ease of use and comfort, but can't claim it's flawless.


  5. Lightweight, and compact 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 22nd 2017

    I have not used the carrier yet, but plan to in December. It is compact and very lightweight.


  6. Everything about this company & product is amazing! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 17th 2017

    I am so pleased with this company! I read great reviews on this product and wanted to give it a try! All the other wraps on the market are so intimidating! My only concern with this baby carrier was my size and the fact that it's tailored to fit based on dress sizes. I am very very thin and petite and was worried the XS wouldn't fit me well, and I was right! There was just so much fabric and my baby seemed to hang too low and wasn't supported enough, so I went straight to the website where I saw a sizing calculator! I entered my height, pre-pregnancy weight and it told me I was an "XXS". I had no idea this size was even sold! I sent an email out to the company asking a question but didn't get a response soon enough and so I just placed my order! When I heard back, Jamie was so helpful answering all of my questions and told me this new size was just launched the week before! (Which I am totally ecstatic about!) She informed me about this being a local company and she would even personally deliver my carrier and refund me the shipping charge! I can't express enough how awesome my whole experience with this company was! My XXS carrier fits us perfectly and my baby absolutely loves it! Thank you to this amazing company for this amazing product!!


  7. LOVE IT!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 14th 2017

    I've never baby worn before so I was really excited to try out the ktan with my newborn and I've gotta say I'm in love! I never thought baby wearing could be so comfortable and easy but the ktan makes it a wonderful experience for both mom and baby!


  8. easy to use 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 8th 2017

    My biggest draw to the Baby K'tan was how it did't seem to have much fabric and was super easy to use! I was so excited when it came in the mail and I could use it comfortably with my 2 day old! He's a summer baby so not having extra fabric was a huge plus for that reason as well.


  9. awesome 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 30th 2017

    Once you get comfortable with how I position ours baby inside this thing is wonderful!
    Great quality ok.


  10. A must with two kids! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 28th 2017

    When I had my son three years ago, I never found a carrier I liked. Now I have a three-year-old and a newborn, so I started looking again for a carrier. The K'tan is simple to put on and holds my baby very securely. It makes every day tasks so much easier, because I can wear my baby and still have both hands to help my son. I wish I found this three years ago!


  11. awesome product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 27th 2017

    I love the Baby K'Tan. It makes doing stuff around the house easy whole holding the baby. Also, I love it for walking.


  12. hands free mama 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jul 3rd 2017

    I knew when i was registering for my baby shower, that I wanted a wrap style carrier. I saw ones that would need multiple people to help you/baby get all wrapped up. I wasn't interested in one like that, being I'm home all day with baby, alone. When I came across the baby k'tan carrier, I knew it was the one for me. I read nothing but excellent reviews so I decided to give it a shot. I have to admit, when I first got it, it was a little hesitant to put her in it, because I was afraid I was going to do it wrong. But just recently I got up the courage to use it. She was so comfy in it, she slept the whole time! And I was hands free so I was able to get a ton of stuff done! I definitely recommend this carrier to all moms. It's super comfy/versatile and easy to use.


  13. Love this sling SO MUCH 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 23rd 2017

    Best decision ever to register/purchase this baby sling. It's so easy, no need for assistance from someone else and no hassle with all that tying or wrapping with other products. Used this literally starting at week 1 of baby's life outside the womb and still use it after he's turned 1 (though not as often because he's so long and squirmy now).


  14. excited to baby wear 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 21st 2017

    I'm looking forward to use my baby carrier ive heard nothing but good things about this product....not much longer and my little one will be in it!!!!


  15. New to baby wearing and LOVE it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 16th 2017

    I purchased the original baby k'tan to wear my newborn daughter. I love it! Having never worn my son, I was worried I wouldn't be able to figure out how to use it but it's really easy. I highly recommend this carrier and I'm so glad I purchased it!


  16. easy to use and keep baby close 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 15th 2017

    i love the versatility of the multi-way-wear. the comfortable cotton material is comfortable and soft for mom and baby. i use it for running errands, getting out for some fresh air and even around the house when i need my hands free. this has become my got-to gift for baby showers. great colors too. ours is purple, but it doesn't stop my husband from wearing it too!


  17. Convenient; wish there were more sizes 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Jun 12th 2017

    I love the idea of this baby carrier. It's convenient, affordable, and fairly easy to put on. My only complaint is that it doesn't allow for a custom fit since there are only a few sizes. With a baby carrier, I understand the importance of wearing the baby "high and tight," not only for safety of the baby, but also to prevent back strain in the wearer. For the most part, this carrier fits; however, it could be tighter and higher for me. I feel that it is safe for my baby, but it puts some strain on my back since I naturally start to slouch due to the carrier being too low. There are so many body types and so many different sized babies that I understand that it would be hard to make something to fit everyone. My baby is very tall for his age (3 months), but he is right in the middle for weight. I am also thin with narrow shoulders. I am 5'4" and 115 pounds post-pregnancy (about 108 pre-pregnancy). This carrier works for me for around the house and quick outings, but I wouldn't rely on it for long-term wear since I think it's a little bit too big for me. I would give this five stars if it fit me better since it's much easier to use than a wrap, and I like that the material is short and doesn't drag the ground like wraps can do!


  18. I love this carrier! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 27th 2017

    I adore this carrier! I first purchased a medium, which was a little too large. I'm currently around a size 8-10 so I thought the medium would work but it was too loose for my newborn. I had a small shipped to me & it fits perfectly! I also have a moby-style wrap, which works well but it is a lot of fabric to work with. The K'tan is so much more convenient & lighter. I highly recommend this wrap, but the sizing runs a little large, so you might possibly have to go down a size.


  19. Great product and amazing customer service! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 25th 2017

    My baby and I love the Baby K'tan! The steps for getting your baby positioned correctly are simple. I originally ordered the wrong size on my registry, and Jamie from Baby K'tan was super helpful in facilitating an exchange for the correct size. Her response time was very fast, and I had my new carrier just a few days after originally contacting her.


  20. I love working out with my baby 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 16th 2017

    This product has made house work and working out easy while my son is able to sleep and enjoy being active with mommy... Thank you baby k'tan.
    Baby Ezra and amanda
