Testimonials & Reviews

I received my Manduca carrier in the mail this morning. I was so excited to see I received a red one! Thank you!! I love red! I couldn’t wait to try it out so after a quick skim of the instruction booklet and a bit of adjusting I popped my 9.5kg 12 month old daughter into the carrier. It was so comfortable. I only wore the carrier for about 5 minutes then, just to try it out. I found the back strap a little difficult to do up but once I moved it up so I could reach it, it was easy. Later in the day we went out and my daughter was in the Manduca carrier for about 30 mins. I stopped in to my work to drop something off and everyone commented at how cosy and comfy she looked in there, plus how comfortable it looked for me, which it was. I had the straps crossed over which I found to be so comfortable. I didn’t have any pulling on my shoulders or pain in my back. I think it was a little fiddly putting the straps on criss-crossed and I wasnt sure what to do with the back strap (it just stuck out) but definitely worth the effort because it made it a lot more comfortable for me. I’m still trying to figure out how to use the head cover when in front carry because it doesn’t show in the booklet. I’m assuming you can use it in front carry. I can’t wait to test it out for a longer period of time, see if my daughter will fall asleep in it. And it will be interesting to see if I have any pain with it. I own another very similar baby carrier and have just started getting some pain with wearing it and I was thinking about giving up using it. Hopefully the Manduca will be my saviour. Photos to come!

The manduca 3-in-1 baby carrier really does grow with your child from newborn to pre-school, making it excellent value, as you will use it for years.

From birth, it’s a baby front carrier, with your newborn held safely by the built-in infant pouch (newborn insert). From approximately three months old, your Manduca carrier becomes a baby hip carrier, then finally, from 6 months, a baby back carrier.

Unfold the hidden head and neck support (when needed), to cradle your baby’s sleeping head. The ingenious extendable back provides great support for bigger children (up to 20kg) or extra head support for newborns.

Manduca is all about having fun and enjoying the freedom of babywearing! We showed how manduca could make your next holiday easier at a recent Sydney show with a tropical theme, and some enthusiastic manduca wearers!

"Just a quick note to thank you for sending the Manduca Baby Carrier. I've ended up using it every day. Sapphira loves it, it's comfortable for both of us, and makes breastfeeding in public so easy. I took her around Taraonga Zoo recently. Here we are in the gondola." Tara Moss.

Manduca M Position (mabc-manduca_m_position.jpg)

*Baby’s knees are higher than their bottom – creating an M shape – orthopedically ideal. The M position corresponds to a baby’s natural position and helps their hips to mature as nature intended. The baby’s knees are pulled up, often as high as the tummy button. In this way, the baby’s legs and bottom form a capital “M”.
