Personal Review by Melissa from

The Manduca Baby Carrier is one of the most comfortable baby carriers I have ever worn. The waist and shoulder straps are well padded and feel very comfortable from the moment you put it on. It 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 carrier 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 it 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!

  • Excellent for newborn to toddler

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Sep 2014

    We brought the manduca in olive when our now 2.5 yo was a newborn. It has been a god send. It's given us the freedom to travel with hands free & bub/toddler can sleep when out & about. The colour means hubby wears it happily & because it's totally adjustable any size person can wear it. We highly recommend it!!!

  • Easy to use, versatile carrier

    Posted by Mandie on 16th Dec 2013

    Love it! Baby seems comfy, but doesn't sleep in it like he does in a woven wrap. However, the Manduca is faster and the hubby is happy to wear it so I would recommend it for sure!

  • Excellent for tall toddlers

    Posted by Melissa on 9th Dec 2013

    Very comfortable and the extended panel is excellent for taller toddlers.
