Baby K’tan Baby Wrap Review

Baby Ktan

WEBSITE FACEBOOK TWITTER PINTEREST

About (taken from website): The Baby K’tan is an innovative “ready to wear” wrap. Its unique double-loop design functions as an all-in-one sling, wrap and baby carrier, yet does not require any wrapping or buckling. Simply slip it on like a t-shirt! The Baby K’tan is sized like clothing for the perfect fit (XS, S, M, L, XL) and offers multiple positions from 8-35 lb (consult physician for preemie).

Never being a part of the baby wearing community before I have always wanted to try to wear my baby. Not because it was more convenient or “easier” not to have to carry her. But I suffer from a autoimmune joint disease and when my bones flare up I really struggle carrying my little ones. I reached out to baby k’tan for a review and lucky me they agreed! I picked out the black breeze carrier. The material is more breathable with a mesh material.

  • breeze-diagram
  • Wrap slides on and fits like a tshirt.
  • Double loop design provides extra security for baby.
  • Machine washable.
  • No buckles or clips to fuss with.
  • multiple positions from 8-35 pounds.

When I first put my daughter in the wrap she was about 12 pounds (4 months old). I tried to place her in a few of the positions but because I am large chested she was very uncomfortable. So I placed her in the Adventure position (facing outward) and boy was she happy! She smiled so big. We walked around our town festival this way and it was like she was seeing the world in a new way. It was nice for me because I was comfortable and so was she. My arms were free to hold my 3 year olds hand and/or push him in the stroller. She also really enjoys the Hip Position even though she is still a little too small. My toddler is like 5 pounds too heavy for me to carry him or I would be putting him in the carrier too! I am so glad that I was able to review the baby k’tan, its a life saver during house cleaning, cooking and shopping.

The Little Tikes™ Company was founded in 1970 in Hudson, OH. Little Tikes™ emulates brand loyalty through durable, safe, imaginative, active play. Little Tikes™ was the first toy company to offer an 800# to consumers for customer service. In fact our 800# and website are molded into every product. Little tikes™ was the first toy company to offer an on-site childcare center for employees’ children and serve as a test center during product development. Little Tikes’™ goal is to create and supply thoughtful and imaginative products to customers and consumers around the world. To reach that goal, Little Tikes’™ associates’ actions are guided by the principle of Customer satisfaction, Teamwork, Innovation, Marketing, Continuous Improvement, and Sustainability.

With our sports loving family at home, we needed a way to get our littlest into sports. With the Little Tikes DiscoverSounds Sports Center, we can do just that. Not only will it help her with sports, the set also lights up with colors and makes different sounds so it’s not just a dull toy she’ll get sick of. There are three different sports on this play set: Football, baseball, and basketball. The Sports Center was extremely easy to put together. You didn’t need to use tools or any equipment to put anything together. All you have to do is snap each different piece on and voila, one Sports Center!

Little Tikes

Even though she isn’t quite big enough to play with it yet, her big brother is trying to show her how to use it. He is showing her how to shoot the basketball into the hoop, how to spin the football, and even to hit the baseball with the bat! One thing she will play with is the baseball bat and the funny thing is, is she’ll hold it right. We already know the three year old loves the Sports Center so we know she’s going to like it just as much or even more than he does. This is a fun play set for ages 9 months to 36 months… or even older than that! We know we love Little Tikes and have for a long time!

Pello Review

Luxe wording

WEBSITE FACEBOOK TWITTER PINTEREST INSTAGRAM

About (taken from website): Designed by a mom for a well-loved baby, pello is a luxe floor pillow that goes beyond the standard play mat, positioning pillow, or baby gym.  The pello provides comfort and support, promotes muscle development, and encourages independent play.

Skylar Pello

Sky Pello

When I had my daughter in January I was debating if I should get a pillow for the baby. I knew that it would only be good for a short time then I would have to go purchase something else as she got bigger. Even though I knew that it would be beneficial, I decided to look for other options. I found My Pello and knew this what exactly what I was looking for.

My Pello is great for infant up to young children. This is a play mat, positioning pillow and a baby gym rolled into one luxe floor pillow for kids.  Place your child in the middle to learn how to sit up; no matter which way they fall the pillow will protect her head. The shape of the pillow is great for your baby for tummy time. Remember to never leave your child alone while playing in the Pello.

The raised sides of the pello are great for a baby learning to crawl. Crawling in and out helps strengthen all muscles throughout the body.

The Pello keeps your child busy. There is several loops around the outside to attach toys and links to. And a pocket with an inside loop for “peek a boo”.

I chose the purple pattern “Sydney” because the baby’s room is done is purple and light green. As we were testing this Pello out over a few weeks my 3 year old son would read his books on it too. He said it is very comfy. And as I was writing my review my 14 year old decided to lay on it and said that he didn’t want to get up! So that being said it is great for any ages! The materials outside and inside are completely washable in case something spills on it… which is bound to happen. :)

I have been on the search for a piece of luggage for my toddler to take back and forth to Nana’s house thats big enough to fit clothes and toys. I have bought him little kid size backpacks that have ripped and fell apart.. mostly because he is.. well he is a 3 year old boy! So I needed something that was as hard as he was on his stuff. BenBat pretty much was an answered prayer! They have a whole line of hard case bags that yea you could think that they are just like “any other suitcase” but GoVinci is very unique and tailored specifically for young kids. What has made this perfect for my kid, is that he is like his mommy and loves to draw, so this is a great way for him to show off his artwork.

Caidens Artwork

The front of the case has a snap clear cover to show off artwork to the world. You are able to go onto BenBat website to print and color pages. The case itself is made from durable high quality materials. Comes with a handle on the top to carry or a pull out handle to roll your goodies behind. Available in 3 colors pink, green and blue.

Overnight

We went on a weekend trip to Virginia Beach recently and I was able to pack him 3 days worth of clothes and some toys comfortably. I even shoved his blankie in there on top the clothes! Comes equip with a mesh pouch inside to store extras, and as you can see he used it to put his notebooks.

caiden and his case

Not only does he use this to for overnights but we take it everywhere and fill it with goodies to keep him busy.
