Babywearing - wearing your child in a baby carrier - is in. Pediatricians, psychologists, and your big sister will tell you that a baby carrier can be just the trick to a happier child. Babywearing helps satisfy both your baby's and your own need for closeness and affection. She will feel calm and secure when she is snuggled up against you in her baby carrier and listening to your heartbeat. Can you blame her? It's like getting a nice long hug from the person you love most.

But don't forget that this isn't just a passing trend. Parents all over the world, since the beginning of time, have used different kinds of baby carriers and baby slings to keep baby nearby. History shows that this is a natural and instinctive practice for parents, and our modern studies show that babies cry less when worn in a baby carrier or held. It's both soothing and enlightening for a baby to piggyback on Mom's and Dad's routines, feeling safe and loved while she learns all about her new world. So, find a great baby carrier, give that stroller a little rest and discover how rewarding it is to wear your baby as you go about your day.

Now that the newest member of the family has arrived, you'll want to show her off wherever you go. And between introducing her to the whole neighborhood and running all those daily errands, you could use a great baby carrier. But what if you can't decide between a baby sling and a structured front baby carrier? it's not that hard: combine the benefits of the two with a Baby K'tan. Baby K'tan baby carriers are incredible hybrid carriers that give you the best of both worlds - and come in several super-stylish designs you'll love wearing.

Baby K'tans have a double loop design that provides the coziness of a soft baby sling with the added security you get from a more structured baby carrier. They are also a total breeze to use. There are no buckles, snaps, or long stretches of fabric that need careful wrapping. Instead, you have the option of quickly and securely holding your child in your baby carrier in eight different positions. You can use your Baby K'tan carrier from birth to three years old (up to 35 pounds), and it's perfect for preemies, twins, and babies with special needs.

Sure, this sounds very good for your baby, but what about your back? The designers of the Baby K'tan baby carrier have thought of it all. Their built-in back support band will keep you as comfortable as the baby. It's no wonder that the Baby K'tan carrier is the popular new kid on the block. These brilliant baby carriers have been featured on The Today Show and in Redbook, The Miami Herald, Urban Baby, iVillage, South Florida Business Journal, Parent & Family, MetroKids, and Fit Pregnancy. Plus, Baby K'Tan has been voted "Best Dad Carrier" by, and received Creative Child Magazine's 2007 Seal of Excellence.

We love that a percentage of the proceeds from every Baby K'tan baby carrier sold is given to the American Heart Association to help fund education, medical research, advocacy programs, and promote Down syndrome awareness.
