New Baby Carriers: The Ruxpin MeiTai, Baby K’Tan and Tickled Moms Pouch

More on baby carriers! I’ve got three reviews of different carriers. The full-reviews will be over at Crash Test Mommies, but I wanted to give you guys a look at these three, wala lang.

The Ruxpin Mei-Tai

I’ve actually had this baby carrier for a while. I’ve used it extensively since I got it months ago. I like the print and I love this for back-carrying. Ruxpin is distributed by Eden, and was conceptualized by Bianca and Buding. Buding is the same gorgeous momma behind our well-loved SaYa carrier. I’ll post a video and/or a picture guide on how I put on the Ruxpin for back-carrying soon.

The Tickled Moms Pouch

This is a pouch by the relatively new player in the local babywearing scene, Tickled Moms. Run by two infectiously vivacious moms, Clarice and Abie, it’s a mompreneurship focused on baby carriers run with lots of love and passion. They also sell ringslings and meitais, but it’s this pouch I wanted to try. Made of meshy, stretchy, lightweight fabric, it could be a good choice for a lot of moms who are looking for something easy to use and quick to wear. Clarice gave me one to roadtest during the FAB Babywearing meet.

Here’s Clarice wearing the pink one:

I got the purple one:

The Baby K’Tan

The K’Tan is also a hybrid, and is the US-version of our beloved SaYa carrier. It’s made of two loops of fabric, joined by a smaller loop, and comes with a band for extra support. Tiffany of Baby Dragon, the local distributor of Baby K’tan here in the Philippines, also gave me this black Baby K’Tan Breeze during the babywearing meet to crashtest. It’s a fantastic carrier made of cotton and mesh, also a good choice for those looking for more double-shoulder support baby carriers.

I’m so excited to post my full-blown review on these baby carriers.

I have another question: The most-viewed pages on my blog are the SaYa carriers. Do you guys want more how-tos and tutorials? Any particular carrier or carrying style? Leave a comment below or leave a message through my Contact Form. Hope to hear from you!
