lula0508 :  if you can get the baby in its not too small. Snugger the better for a newborn.

Do you have a sling meet/sling library meet near you? Fantastic group for getting lots of baby wearing advice and fitting checks.

This is a good overview of safety measures for baby carriers:


I have a Baby K’Tan and I really like it for the first 6 months or so. It does need to be snug to properly support the baby. Also the material will stretch some with the weight of the child.

everything ive read about the k’tan is it should fit snug/small as it stretches quite a bit

I am the same size and and thought my ktan might be too small… Nope! It’s definitely the right size and my giant 5 month old fits well comfortably in it.  That said … I found it really hard to use when she was a newborn, she didn’t come around to it until about month 4. If you’re having trouble keep trying and I highly recommend finding a BWI (baby wearing international) group if you haven’t already,. The one where I live has a selection of baby carriers that you can check out for a week at a time.
