Meet the baby wrap you don’t have to wrap! Baby K’tan – for parents who need to multi-task

Carrying my baby in style thanks to Baby K’tan — many thanks for sponsoring this post!

My daughter is six months old and while I don’t babywear daily since I work out of the home, there are times when it comes in real handy. I love having her close to me as much as possible since I don’t get to see her during the day, and with two other kids it makes it much easier to tend to their needs, get chores done, and keep everyone happier.

If you are interested in babywearing but worried about trying to figure out a wrap, the Baby K’tan may be a good choice for you. There are no buckles or straps that you have to wrap. The carrier is simply two rings and a sash. 

Because this carrier is designed so that you don’t have to wrap and tie it, you do need to get one sized to fit you in order to make sure baby is held safely in the carrier. There are many positions that you can carry your baby in, but so far I have only tried the hug hold (pictured below) and the adventure hold (pictured above).

Why I love babywearing

  1. I have three kids.  I have a seven and five year old, plus the baby. The easiest way to keep up with everyone else is to wear the baby. I wear Allison when we play outside or when we walk up to the local playground. If I didn’t wear the baby, I’d spend all my time trying to please the other two kids while our very happy and content little girl got no attention at all.
  2. I love the closeness.  There’s just something extra special about having my little girl close to me with her head right there in perfect kissing range. She loves that mommy is right there with her, yet she can still look around and see everything. I love that I can hang onto being extra close to her while I still can, and when she falls asleep with her cheek resting against my chest, I melt a little.
  3. Strollers can be bumpy.  Let’s be honest, strollers are really designed for urban/suburban areas. If you live in rural area like I do your options as to where you go can with that stroller are pretty limited, and once you start to go off road — well I’m sure my baby girl would tell you it is pretty bumpy (if she could talk of course). If I do use the stroller when we go somewhere it takes up nearly half or all of the trunk space that I could be using for other things — like groceries.
  4. I get exercise. Okay, so this isn’t one of the main reasons I like to wear baby — but it sure doesn’t hurt! Babywearing is a workout since you are walking around with a  10, 15, 20, or even 30 pound weight strapped to your chest or your back. All this extra weight can do wonders for your core and back muscles and even help with weight loss. If you were going to the gym you’d start with lighter weights and slowly increase the weight over time, but your growing baby does that for you with no gym fee necessary! If you are looking for even more of a workout do some lunges or deep squats and you’ll end up with legs of steel!

Final thoughts on the Baby K’tan

Overall I would say the Baby K’tan is a great carrier if you are worried about learning how to use a wrap. It is really easy to use, although I did find the adventure hold took a little more practice before I felt confident wearing her that way. Even though you probably won’t need it, there are videos showing you exactly how to put the wrap on and place baby if you do feel that you want to see someone putting it on.

Another thing to note is that you need to order the carrier in the correct size so that it fits you well and holds baby snugly. I was a little nervous at first that I would get the wrong size, however, their website says they want to ensure you have a proper fit and they offer an easy exchange if you happen to get the wrong size.

The only downfall I can see to getting a carrier that is sized only to you is that you are the only person who will be able to use it (unless you and your spouse/partner are the same size).


So tell us….

Did you or do you wear your baby? Why do you love it?

    I love to babywear because I can multi task, taking care of the older child, cooking and cleaning! I also enjoy the snuggles and knowing that my baby is happy! Reply

    I was never a baby wearer with my first, but would love to with my second! What a great way to be hands free, yet still so close to baby! Reply

    I would luv to try this wrap! I have tried other buckle carrier types and they don't work well at all! I need a better way to carry baby!! Reply

    I love to babywear to bond with my baby! Plus I hate pushing a stroller so it's easier when we go on family walks or shopping. Reply

    I have a three week old baby boy That I would love to wear. I also have a 2 1/2 year old daughter, and since she is big enough I think having her walk would be easier than using a double stroller. Reply

    I would love to do this. I can't seem to get anything done. This would make my chores a bit easier not having to hold her all the time. Reply

    I loved wearing my first baby, and since she wanted to be held ALL the time, it was a great hands free option. Now with #2 coming, baby wearing will be essential as I try to keep up with an active toddler! Reply

    I love being able to snuggle a little one close while still being able to take care of my other kiddos! :) Reply

    When I babysat this week I found out how wonderful wraps and carriers can be for nap time! I didn't have to struggle to get the little guy to sleep and his weight was distributed more evenly, which is a HUGE help for me. Reply

    I loved wearing our second son and I can't wait to wear our third little one when he or she is born! Reply

    What size is your baby ktan? I tried the small breeze and was too tight. I heard cotton is different sizing. I'm 135 lbs 5"6 Reply

      Mine is a medium, however, I weigh about 149 and am same height. I would think a small would be okay for you but if you are having trouble they offer an exchange program so you can be sure to get the right fit. Just contact customer support, I'm sure they'd be happy to help! :-) Reply
