Well, the giveaways just keep on coming. Last week I started off with a Rumparooz diaper and CJ Butter of your choosing. If you haven’t entered that one you still have until Saturday at 11:59 p.m. to enter. But now I am giving away a Baby K’tan baby carrier.
The Baby K’tan
When I was pregnant with my youngest I began seriously looking at baby carriers for her because I wanted to avoid the carseat carrier (went right to a convertible carseat that rear faces) and I didn’t want to get a stroller. So I decided that baby wearing was what would be best for us. I fell in love with the Baby K’tan. Ultimately, the sizing aspect of the Baby K’tan scared me too much and I ended up going with a Sleepy wrap and eventually upgraded to a Storchenwiege wrap.
However, if I could have gotten my hands on one of these and tried it on at some point I am still sure I absolutely would have loved it. You see, it’s a wrap that you don’t have to tie and I love the support of my wraps, but there was that learning curve with the tying. Plus, putting it on at home and having it hit the floor was never a big deal, but if I ever needed to put it on when we were out it was a pain getting it tied trying to keep the ends up off the floor or ground and not get dirty. This would have been the perfect option for that since there is no tying involved.
What it boils down to is you get a sling, soft carrier, and wrap all in one carrier to give you the ultimate options in baby wearing. It is made of a light weight cotton and is ready-to-wear, giving parents/caregivers the ability to comfortably carry infants to toddlers (up to age 3) in many positions.
The K’tan carrier is lightweight and compact like a sling, but goes over both shoulders to evenly distribute baby’s weight like a structured carrier. There is an adjustable back support band that offers the wearer extra back support and makes it easy to adjust your child to evenly distribute weight on both shoulders. This design, which is only found on a Baby K’tan, is perfect for premature babies and special needs babies/toddlers because it offers the wearer a soft cotton carrier that is ready-to-wear, with no buckles, snaps, rings or hardware. It’s so easy to use, the secret behind this parent-invented baby carrier is its unique double-loop design, which provides added security for carrying baby and privacy for mom while nursing!
Not only is it easy to put on, but it’s easy to take off too. And if you don’t need to use it when you get to your destination, then you can just fold it up into its own carry bag that comes with it for free. Baby K’tan, LLC uses all 100% natural cotton free of harmful chemicals, formaldehydes and azo dyes.

When I was looking into this carrier I didn’t realize that it was designed by a mom of a child who has Down Syndrome. She was looking for a carrier to use with her son who had low muscle tone, as is common with children with Down Syndrome. And that was how she came up with this. I had no idea until I had approached them about offering this giveaway. As far as I know this is the only carrier on the market that is designed to use with low muscle tone babies/children. This endeared me even more to Baby K’tan.
