Excerpt: I had a sling with my first baby and never felt like it was safe. When baby number two was on his way, I knew I needed something else. I liked that this was more like a shirt than a sling, so I got it. I've used it once so far and the little guy actually broke free of it. It was really tight on me, or felt like it was at least, but he managed to loosen it.
Excerpt: A really great buy! Its been invaluable to me and my little one! Easy to use, easy to clean, lightweight, durable, small enough to not take up any space, and baby loves it! I wish they had more design choices though. This is perfect for mommy and daddy! Especially if you're looking for your very first wrap to begin your baby-wearing journey!
Excerpt: I really like this baby carrier because this one is made more for newborns. It is sized for their small bodies, and not quite developed yet muscles and bones. This baby carrier is very safe. It slides onto mom just like a shirt and is strong enough to support your babies weight. I like this baby carrier a lot because it is comfortable for my newborn and for me. It is made out of a nice soft material and is made to not weigh your back down.
Excerpt: I wish I had this with my first two kids. Instead I got it with my 3rd and it was invaluable with her and now with our 4th baby. My girl's have loved it on up into toddlerhood. I love having them close when they are tiny. I also love the ease of use with this carrier. Nothing to fasten or fiddle with, you just slip it on and go. It clean really easily too. A quick run through the washer and dryer and my K'tan comes out looking and fitting just like brand new.
Summary: I do love the product, but for my 5 week old it is a little harder to use and get into by myself. I bought this and an ergo baby and a baby bjorn and the bjorn is by far the easiest and best to use when the baby is small. It has a lot of cushioning around her head and it's easy to do on my own. I think the ergo baby and the K'tan will be perfect for when she can hold her head up because they are so soft on her legs.
Summary: Let me just say that I think me and my little one are just not sling carrier people. We tried the Moby wrap...way too complicated, and then purchased this one. It is easy to put on, lightweight, and well made. I ordered the size according to the sizing chart and it was way too small. I think my pregnancy boobs weren't accounted for!
I think this sling might be a really good product if you are into slings. We ended up getting an Ergo carrier from a friend.
