You must pay attention to the sizing; they’re sized according to what you wear. This is especially important for women with larger breasts.
Love the idea of a wrap-style carrier, but don’t have the patience (or extra pair of hands) to make it work? You’ve just found the perfect baby sling for you. It’s pre-wrapped and secured. And yet, a quick tug on the adjustable back puts it into the tight position for you. The wide fabric also sits comfortably over your shoulders.
We love that the International Hip Dysplasia Institute acknowledges the Baby K'tan Baby Carrier as a "hip-healthy" product when used as directed. It also meets CPSC safety standards and has a patented double loop design. There is a word of warning, though – pay careful attention to sizing before you order. Some users report it being too snug and some think it is too big. Women should factor in the size of their breasts – and keep in mind that you may need a separate K’tan carrier for each adult in the family; they’re sold according to your size – not your baby’s.
