Simon Says: Baby K’tan Carriers Rock! (GIVEAWAY!)

Before Simon was born J tried on almost every fancy carrier that they had on display at Buy Buy Baby. We were there for a LONG time. I was too large to comfortably try them on at that point, so J made the decision solo. We chose a carrier that we both really like, but early on it didn’t meet my needs with Simon.

After a few days of carrying Simon everywhere that I went around the house, my arms (like the rest of me) were exhausted and I told J that we had to find a carrier that I could easily put on and use both at home and out and about.

I wanted a multi use carrier with the criteria that it had to be easy to put on and extremely comfortable to wear for long stretches – there could be no complicated straps or fasteners…and it had to look good with pajamas. 🙂

I spent a lot of time holding, snuggling, and carrying Simon and we went through a good few weeks where he did not want to be put down for even a second. As much as I enjoyed the cuddles, I still had things that I needed to get done around the house (silly dishes).

J and I went to the store to get a new carrier and I ended up with one that I used for all of a few minutes before I decided that it needed to be returned. It was uncomfortable on my shoulders and I couldn’t figure out how to make Simon comfortable – he would scream every time that we tried to put him in it. I was convinced that I’d have to wear the carrier that J chose with all of the bells and whistles or carry Simon in my arms at all times. On a whim I decided to purchase the Baby K’tan because it looked easy to use and the reviews that I was reading were positive. I am so glad that I did.

I used the Baby K’tan daily for many weeks and still use it frequently for walks and errands. I find the Baby K’tan to be as comfortable as our carrier with all of the bells and whistles, but much easier to put on once I got the hang of it. It was also significantly less expensive.

We have moved from kangaroo position (used before Simon could hold his head up) to hug position and both have been comfortable. The kangaroo position took some getting used to because I was worried about Simon being able to breathe, but once we got the hang of it, we used it all of the time.

I love that the Baby K’tan easily changes to whatever Simon might need at the time. The many wear positions really allow the carrier to grow with the baby (useful from 8-35 lbs). Simon seems perfectly cozy in each of the positions that we’ve tried and I like that the Baby K’tan feels secure and comfortable for me too.

It is important to pay attention to the size chart because if it’s too big everything will be less comfortable. I initially thought that ours was a bit small for me, but after getting situated I realized that it needs to fit snuggly so that everyone is comfortable.

Unlike other carriers, I feel that the baby’s weight is distributed across my shoulders and even as Simon gets bigger I think that I’ll be able to carry him without hurting my back.

  1. I love the K’tan Prints- Nifty Shades of Grey. I wold love to win this for my sister. She is 7 months pregnant with her first & I know she would love this. I am a big advocate for baby-wearing, and have 6 different carriers, love them all! It is an amazing way to bond with your child. My daughter is 22 months old, and I still wear her!!!

  2. I personally would love to have the “Active K’tan” in “coral” for baby #3 I am currently pregnant with :0)

  3. I’d love to win this for my daughter, she is very clingy and it gets tiring carrying her around all day. I like the organic one most. 🙂

  4. Reading your post sold me. I actually DO want to win this. It sounds great and even though M is too big I could gift it or use it WAY down the road 😉

  5. I love the Baby K’tan Nifty Shades of Grey Baby Carrier, Size Small. I would love for myself as we are currently TTC baby #2!

  6. This looks awesome!!! So glad you posted this. I was just looking for a new carrier. The Baby Bjorn just didn’t work for me at all and was searching for a new one for baby#2. This looks perfect!

  7. I would love to have the original in green or blue. This is on my list of the three essentials I need for our second, due in April. I had a moby with my first and loved the carry, but not the wrapping and tying!

  8. I like the black or eggplant color of the original cotton. I’d be all over the organic cotton carrier if it came in multiple colors.

  9. I am trying to win this for myself and my 6 week old. I have never used one of these before, but I like the idea of the Breeze style that is mesh so it doesn’t get too hot.
