If your little bubs is a little drooler and chomping on anything they can find you may want to consider some Teething Pads there are some that are specifically designed for the Manduca Baby Carrier called Fumbees which are made from beautiful soft Organic Cotton and are reversible.
Some wearers may find that when baby is 3-4 months you may find that you baby is getting too big for the insert and too small without the insert, it is recommended that you can use a Size-It to reduce the pouch size until baby is big enough to sit in the pouch in a comfortable 'M' Position.

The Manduca Baby Carrier is one of the most comfortable baby carriers that I have used. What I like about this baby carrier is that the waist and shoulder straps are well padded and feels very comfortable the moment you put it on. The carrier has a canopy for sun protection and to hide babies head away when they fall asleep. Today my 6 month boy fell asleep in it for nearly two hours, I was very comfortable and he was too. I sat at my computer while he was in the Manduca and it made me sit up straight which was a bonus as I have a tendency to slouch. The other plus is if baby does falls asleep you can get them out of the carrier easily to lay them down. I like that you can wear the Manduca on your front, hip and back, which makes it very versatile. It is very well made and the material is durable and will wear well. The baby carrier is very much gender neutral therefore my husband and I can share the baby carrier, as he can’t stand wearing any baby carrier that looks a little girly. There are a few straps to adjust which can be a little fiddly, however all worth the effort once you have it right. The top back strap is a little hard to reach to do up but very minor annoyance. The key is to get the straps at the correct lengths and position and when front wearing, have your baby high enough that you can kiss their head. I can understand why this carrier is a top seller in Germany it’s excellent!
