Baby k'tan sizing ?

I just got my baby k'tan in small. I'm 5'5 and size 4-6 (probably more like 6 right now). Lo is 15lbs. The carrier is pretty snug right now and I'm wondering if I should exchange it for a bigger size since lo will be growing quickly. What do you think? Anyone with one have any suggestions?

Re: Baby k'tan sizing ?

  • I have one and I read somewhere you shouldn't have to exchange or buy a bigger size... its supposed to stretch to fit the child. My LO is still 8lbs so I'm not sure how it will be later but thats something I read somewhere.

  • Keep it! It is supposed to be snug and it'll be a little difficult getting your LO into it at first, but it will stretch out in time. I read a lot about how the k'tan was supposes to stretch and I should expect it to be snug, but when I got mine I thought the same thing as you! I was sure it wouldn't work, but it did. It's definitely better for it to be snug than loose. It will stretch out to fit your lo as your lo grows.

  • sounds like the right size :) it feels a little snug at first, but that's actually good so that it can stretch a little. we love our k'tan. enjoy!
