Baby K-tan vs Moby
I have Mobys and love them. Used them with my first two. Found a Baby K'tan (am I spelling that right?) on clearance for $30. I know it's the same basic principle but it's just a bit easier to get on, and I'm guessing that since you don't have to tie it, it doesn't come slipping loose as easily and you don't have that big knot aching right in the middle of your back when you wear your Moby around the house. Is it worth it to get the Baby K'tan because it's just a little neater and pre-measured.

I have both and the K'Tan is so much easier to deal with and much quicker to put on when I am out and about. I tend to use the moby around the house more.

Katan is easier!

I honesty preferred the Moby to the K'tan. I liked the Moby nice and tight, and it always felt like the K'tan was getting too baggy.

While you won't have knot slippage with a K'tan it will still stretch out over time, and you can't just tie tighter like you can with the Moby. I would personally skip the K'tan and maybe search out a Mei Tai as a faster option that won't stretch out.

I have both. The K'tan is so much easier and less dragging on the floor. Quicker to put on, which is a huge plus if you have other kids to attend to. And if it stretches out a bit, I would assume you can just throw it in the dryer. I haven't had that problem yet. If you are in between sizes, size down so it can stretch over time. Also, your baby gets bigger, so stretching out might be a good thing.??? I love the K'tan.

I have no experience with the moby, but have a ktan and love it! After reading reviews, I got the size smaller than my t shirt size and it fits perfectly!

Wow, thanks for that site! I have a k'tan, which I LOVE, but it's pink, and I'm hoping this next little one is a boy, so...that'll just mean I get to buy anther carrier! :) They had some great deals!

I love my moby but have heard great things about the k'tan, I think it would be totally worth it!
