    Default K'tan Baby Carrier?

    Does anyone have one of these?

    http://www.babyktan.com/index.html

    Would it be similar to a pouch?

    I have a pouch that I used with Jeena but am looking for more for the next baby!

    I'd say it was closer to a wrap than a pouch in most uses. Looks bizarre to me and like there would be a large learning cure but that could be baby-brain talking.

    I've read a bit about it and I think actually that it's a lot easier than it looks. Think like two slings crossed, with a band across. 'Fake Front Wrap Cross Carry' it is really. It is stretchy, you can't do back carries, it fits large so order a size down is what I have heard, and it's good for young babies but despite the fact it says it works to 40 lbs, in reality it starts to stretch out once baby is maybe 15 lbs? So not a great long term carrier but apparently a great newborn carrier/faux wrap.

    I haven't personally used it, but my friend has and they say it works great for the first few months, but when baby gets a bit bigger, it cuts into you. The loops that you stretch out to distribute the weight over your shoulders and back and over baby's bum...it tends to roll up...kinda like if you were to roll your socks down. kwim? She says that it's not as comfy then especially on the shoulders. You really have to be sure to spread out the material and she lost the extra wrap part that goes around after the loops are in place so she could only use it a certain way after that. And like PP, she said it did stretch out a bit after a couple of months and a few good washes. Baby was hanging lower.

    It's only heresay. I personally have a wrap and now that I'm used to it, it's very comfortable and I'm very happy with it.

    Looks pretty similar to the Blue Celery Baby Sling, I think:
