When Michal Chesal gave birth to her first child in 1999, she thought she was ready for anything. And then Michal’s son, Coby, was born with Down Syndrome. Chesal wanted to wear little Coby as close to her as possible, but the carrier she had wasn’t suitable for Coby’s muscle development and mobility. So Michal made her own carrier, a sort of double-sling/swaddle hybrid that was big enough to completely support Coby. When her longtime friends, Isaac and Aviva Wernick, borrowed the handmade carrier for their own infant son after his open-heart surgery, they told Michal she needed to put it on the market – and Baby K’tan was born. The company’s best-selling line of signature baby wraps, with their unique “double-loop” design, are free of harmful chemicals, formaldehydes and azo dyes.
The Baby K’tan Original Baby Carrier is an innovative, 100% natural, soft cotton baby carrier that is an ideal blend of a sling, wrap and carrier, providing the positions and benefits of all three. Lightweight and compact like a sling, it goes over both shoulders to evenly distribute baby’s weight like a structured carrier. The adjustable back support band offers the wearer extra back support and makes it easy to adjust baby or toddler’s weight distribution on both shoulders. The exclusive design offers the wearer a 100% natural cotton carrier that is ready-to-wear, with NO buckles, snaps, rings or hardware! Simple to use, the secret behind this ready-to-wear baby carrier is it’s unique double-loop design, which gives added security for carrying baby and privacy for mom while nursing.
