Baby K'tan Review and Giveaway!




In the Smokey Mountains, he slept the entire day we walked around!
When I was pregnant I never thought I would have a baby who was colicky. It just never crossed my mind. When I had my son it was a rough start. He cried constantly, apparently I had super low milk and my poor baby was starving, so I thought once we were able to supplement he would be able to get full and sleep and not scream constantly. This I think actually made things worse on my poor baby and I was at a loss. He needed to be held 24/7 and no one else could console him either so that made it very tough. Something had to give.
First time using the K'tan! This is an old print

I had been give a Moby and a Baby K'tan carrier by two different people I used to nanny for. I had actually forgotten about the K'tan because Branden had put the box high in the closet so I grabbed the Moby to see if it would help my little guy sleep and give me a way to actually be able to eat, do some laundry, and give my arms a rest. Well, let's just say it took me awhile to get the damn thing on even with the help of youtube videos and Ace was pissed the second he was in it and didn't stop crying the no matter how much I adjusted it. I was so disappointed. I posted a status on Facebook saying I was going to give it another try and hoped he wouldn't scream and a friend suggested the Baby K'tan. I then remembered I had one and looked up youtube videos on how to put it on. I looked in the mirror and got it on the first try. Ace cried for a split second because I was making sure he was in there and then passed out. I was in shock! That thing became my best friend after that day. I brought it with me EVERYWHERE.


2 months old at Disney!
I was never a fan of infant carseats. I wasn't the kind of Mom that had her baby in one all the time. The only time he would be in it is if he fell asleep in the car (which was rare, he hated the car).  If my baby was awake he was being held so the K'tan was the best invention for Moms like myself. It comes with a sash that actually turns into a little sack to hold the carrier making it easier to carry everywhere. If Ace woke up and we were in the grocery store I would pull it out and have it on in less then a minute and could walk around the store with him completely content. Just the thought of bringing the Moby out with me was a nightmare. I don't even want to imagine the aggregation and the ends of it touchy nasty store floors. The K'tan is basically wrapped for you so there isn't any long ends hanging down.

When Ace was about 6 weeks old I posted a picture of us on the Baby K'tan Facebook page. I was asked by the lovely Michal Chesal to come by and take a few pictures with Ace (their warehouse is down the street from my house) for their new sash and colors. I was so honored.
That's Ace sleeping in the Sage green carrier
We got to their warehouse and put Ace into the K'tan I would be wearing for the pictures and he slept the entire time! We were there for a few hours and he was so content in the K'tan.
After that Ace has been used for another shoot which landed his picture on the new Baby K'tan box!
We were also honored to be a Baby K'tan Ambassador!
The Baby K'tan carrier has a double loop design making it stand apart from carriers like the Moby. It makes wrapping fast and simple. There are 6 different caring positions so you can use the Kangaroo position for a newborn and the Hip Position for toddlers! How cool is that?

Now to get to the good part, I am going to be giving away one Baby K'tan Carrier. You will have your choice of color and size. Follow all the instructions and good luck!!!

  38. Thought I left a comment the other day but don't see it? I just found your blog so I'm still reading some of the posts. Being pregnant with baby #4 though it's always great to read "momma stuff". :-) Thanks for the giveaway! I've struggled with having sick and crying babies each time so trying this wrap would be great if this one ends up being the same. Look forward to reading more on your blog in the future!
