From the Manufacturer
The Baby K’tan Baby Carrier is an innovative 100% natural soft cotton baby carrier that is an ideal blend of a sling, wrap and carrier, providing the positions and benefits of all three. There is no other carrier available like it (a ready-to-wear wrap!) that enables parents & caregivers to comfortably carry infants and toddlers (from birth to 3 years) in multiple positions. The K’tan carrier is ideal for premature babies and babies with special needs. It is lightweight and compact like a sling, yet goes over both shoulders to evenly distribute baby’s weight like a structured carrier. The adjustable back support band offers the wearer extra back support and makes it easy to adjust baby or toddler’s weight distribution on both shoulders. The exclusive design offers the wearer a 100% natural cotton carrier that is ready-to-wear, with NO buckles, snaps, rings or hardware! Extremely simple to use, the secret behind this parent-invented, ready-to-wear baby carrier is its unique double-loop design, which gives added security for carrying baby and privacy for mom while nursing! It is easy to put on and take off, and comes in a free carry bag! Baby K’tan, LLC uses 100% natural cotton free of harmful chemicals, formaldehydes and azo dyes.
The Baby K’tan is meant to fit snugly to allow for stretch and will likely feel tighter than expected initially; however, this does not necessarily mean it is too small.
Below are a few tips to help with your comfort, and determine if you need a different size:
When trying on the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier (without your child inside), the lowest point of the carrier should fall just below your chest and above your navel. When wearing your child in the carrier, the lowest point of the carrier may fall at your navel or waist, but should not fall below your hips.
When carrying your child in the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier: if the lowest point of the carrier falls at or below your hips, choose a smaller size; if the lowest point of the carrier falls at your chest, choose a larger size.
When carrying your child in the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier, if the carrier feels too loose (i.e., child feels insecure, legs are bumping child’s body as you walk, or carrier easily slips off your shoulder), choose a smaller size.
The size of the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier is not based upon your child’s age or weight. The cross-stretch of the cotton knit fabric and the different carrying positions enables the carrier to grow with your child. Accordingly, you should not require a larger size as your child grows and develops from a baby to a toddler (up to 35 pounds).
THE ORIGINAL WRAP WITHOUT THE WRAPPING: Ready-to-wear out of the box, easily switch between five different carry positions without the confusion or frustration of a traditional wrap. The Baby K’tan Baby Carrier’s patented double-loop design, natural cotton fabric, and unique one-way stretch slips on like a t-shirt and is comfortable and secure for preemies, newborns, infants and toddlers. Safe for babies birth up to 35 lbs.
FIT FOR YOU: From XXS to XL, the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier is sized to fit the parent or adult carrying the child; age or weight of child is not a factor. USE SIZING CHART. Each person is shaped differently. Like clothing, some people may fit into more than one size or fall in-between sizes. If in-between sizes or unsure of sizing, SIZE DOWN. The cotton fabric has more stretch than structured carriers. Use pre-pregnancy size to determine your Baby K’tan Baby Carrier size.
HIP HEALTHY AND SECURE: The International Hip Dysplasia Institute has acknowledged the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier as a “hip-healthy” product when used as directed. The Baby K’tan Baby Carrier’s wide fabric loops support ergonomic positioning for hip healthy development and provide soft head support for baby. The Baby K’tan Baby Carrier’s adjustable connector loop provides optimal back support for the parent or adult wearing the child.
EASY TO CLEAN, CONVENIENT: Made of 100% natural cotton knit, the ORIGINAL Baby K’tan Baby Carrier is as comfortable as it is easy to keep clean. Machine washable, dryer safe. All Baby K’tan Baby Carriers come in a matching carry bag that converts to a sash which provides added support for certain positions. Simply turn the carry bag inside out and it turns into a sash with a convenient pocket. When you are finished using the sash, turn in right-side in and you have a carry bag to hold your Baby K’tan Baby Carrier.
EASY AS 1-2-3: The Baby K’tan Baby Carrier enables hands-free, buckle-free, hassle-free babywearing anytime, anywhere. Take your Baby K’tan Baby Carrier out of the carry bag, double up the loops like a necklace or scarf, put the carrier over your head with the connector loop behind your neck, place one arm through each loop and then lower the outer loop to your hip. Now you are ready for one of the five positions of the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier.
