  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – I got this because I have a Moby and was tired of tying it when I was out in places like parking lots of grocery stores and the airport.

What the Makers Say

  • The Baby K’tan Baby Carrier is a cross between a sling and a more structured front infant carrier, providing the positions and benefits of both, plus more! Babies can be snuggled (and breastfed!) in the Hug or Explore positions. They can be carried upright (facing in or out), and as they get older, they can be carried on your hip.
