Did you know that today is International Kangaroo Care Awareness Day? Practicing Kangaroo Care in the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier can be an amazing experience for both parent and baby!
Kangaroo Care is the practice of holding or wearing a newborn skin-to-skin.
Benefits to baby:
- helps regulate baby’s body temperature
- more rapid brain development
- close hold enhances successful breastfeeding
- decreased crying
- earlier parent-child bonding
- warmth mimics calming environment of the womb
To practice kangaroo care in the Baby K’tan simply remove your shirt and your
infant’s shirt, and place your newborn skin-to-skin in the kangaroo position

The Baby K’tan was tested by Babble’s very own blogger and reviewer, who also polled moms, scanned through social media channels and posts and put together her very own list of favorite carriers, wraps and slings.
Excellent review of the Baby K’tan Breeze Baby Carrier! The Baby K’tan Breeze is half mesh half cotton and is designed to be a lighter and cooler carrier; great for the summer months or warmer climates! It can be worn in all the same great wearing positions as the original cotton Baby K’tan Baby Carrier without the hassle of wrapping or tying – it is the baby wrap without all the wrapping!
Julia and baby Jude put this carrier to the test and gave it a thumbs up! The Breeze is comfortable and easy to use like the original cotton Baby K’tan Carrier, yet lighter and more breathable.

4.5 stars out of 5 for the Baby K’tan Baby Carrier on the blog Our Natural Journey! Eryn found the K’tan easy to use and put on, comfortable in the various wearing positions and great for nursing while on-the-go! “Since it’s sized, it doesn’t have any straps or buckles that you have to deal with to adjust it. And unlike a wrap, it doesn’t have several yards of fabric that you have to contend with either. That means getting your baby in and out of the carrier never requires part of the carrier to drop to the floor, which is a critical feature if you ever need to, say, change a diaper when you’re in public somewhere and you don’t want the carrier to touch the floor of a public restroom.
Another benefit: Once it’s on, it’s comfortable to keep it on, so you can easy slip baby in and out of it. Since it isn’t bulky at all, this meant I could easily keep it on while doing housework or during diaper changes without it getting in the way.”
About.com chose our Organic Baby K’tan Baby Carrier as one of their 4 favorite Organic carriers!
The Organic Baby K’tan is made of 100% certified GOTS cotton and is a natural un-dyed cotton. The Organic carrier can be worn in all the same ways as our original cotton carrier and helps keep your little one close to your heart. It is available for sale in stores and online at www.babyktan.com
Here’s what they say:
“Made of 100% organic cotton, the Baby K’tan is a mix between a sling, wrap and structured carrier. The innovative double loop design means you can take it on and off without any wrapping, buckling or straps.
It can hold infants and toddlers in 6 positions from 8-35 lbs. and features two shoulder straps and an adjustable back support band to take pressure off your back and distribute baby’s weight. The wide fabric also allows you to carry your baby in an ergonomic position.
The carrier comes in 5 different sizes and can be machine washed and dried. It only comes in a natural color, but it can be personalized with embroidery at an additional fee.”
