This pregnant lady is very happy. I was lucky enough that Baby K’tan sent me a Black Breeze Baby K’tan carrier to try out (LINK)! We’ve still got about 4.5 months left to bake our little one, so I can’t give you a full review yet, but wanted to share my first impressions.
I’ve mentioned before that I have short little T-rex arms, and couldn’t quite get the hang of wrapping the Pickle in a Moby. I would either need my husband’s help, or I wouldn’t get it quite loose enough. As such, I wasn’t as effective at it as I wanted to be.
What’s great about the K’Tan Breeze is that it’s easy to use for even the wrap-challenged. It is essentially two hoops hooked in the back. I couldn’t get a good enough picture of this, so this is available on Baby K’Tan’s website:
The two loops are crossed over your body and brought under your arms. There are much more thorough instructions on their website, and it can be used in a variety of positions as baby grows. I’m really excited about that, because it’s not limiting in its use like some carriers are. Much the same as how you can get wraps in different sizes, the K’Tan has sizing that is appropriate based off of your dress and bra sizes to ensure that it fits comfortably.
The Breeze is especially exciting to me since Little is due in August – the Breeze is 50% mesh and 50% cotton, so it’s cooler and more breathable if I want to take a walk around the neighborhood while babywearing. We can essentially use this from birth until toddlerhood, since it supports children from 8 to 35 lbs.
In short, I’m really, really excited to use this on something other than a pregnant belly. There are a bunch of colors available, and you can even purchase carriers gently-used on their website. I’ve been coveting the K’Tans since long before we were pregnant, so I’m pumped! Keep an eye out here in late August/early September for a full report on how it works.
