Baby K'tan Carrier

Anybody have experience with the baby k'tan carrier? I had the Boba wrap for my first and liked it, but it was cumbersome to wrap and would like some more breathability as we live in Fl. So I'm looking into purchasing a new and easier baby carrier for my second. I've heard some good things about the K'tan being one piece and having a mesh/"active" option...

    Haven’t use one first hand, but my friend loves hers! Said it’s easy to use and comfortable

    I loved mine for when my daughter was small. It was less stiff than my soft structured carrier and easy to get on and off. And the material was really comfortable

    Any experiences breastfeeding while wearing it? Or in the multiple carrying positions?

    I pumped so idk about that. The newborn “fetal” and the legs out froggy position are super easy and snug. I never tried any of the others

    I really liked mine. I had both a Boba wrap and a baby k'tan and I ended up just using the k'tan because it was much easier to put on and take off! I had a summer baby so I mostly stayed indoors in the AC, but I imagine baby would get sweaty in both if too hot out. Didn't breastfeed in it.

    The k'tan is convenient in that it doesn't have long tails, but stretchy wraps need multiple passes (layers) over baby to be safe and jersey is very warm. I found my son and I overheated easily in the regular k'tan. If you like stretchy, solly wraps are more breathable, or you can look into woven wraps that can be used all the way till toddler and beyond. Ring slings are great with small babies too and are fast to pop on and off. Here's a guide: http://www.wrapyouinlove.com/where-to-start/
