  • "I highly recommend this baby carrier, if it wasn't comfortable for me to wear, I would not have used it so much with both of my daughters (I even wore my eldest in the back carry position while pregnant with my second daughter!) and wouldn't still be using it now. I can't find any sign of wear and tear even after three babies and it being 5 years old now. There are no worn places where the material is getting thin, there's no fraying or threads coming loose/undone, all the buckles etc are still perfect. That's even with having gone through the washing machine several times (mostly thanks to leaking nappies...) These are just wonderfully made and so worth the purchase!" - Amy McCarthy

Testimonials & Reviews

Over the last two days we have had two outings with two very different reactions from my bubba. The first was to the beach, I decided to try the side position as she is a sticky beak and wants to see what is going on. Once I figured out how to do it and where the straps went it was actually easier putting her in the side position then the front. She also loved it! Loved that she could see what was going on and comfortable on my hip. It also kept her warm in the breeze off the ocean. She had a good suck of the arm strap again, so I think a investment in some suck pads would be a good idea but she was safe and happy for quite some time until she wanted to have a wiggle. We also went to the Model Train Show today and it was a very warm day, I put her in the side carry position again and it was easy to pop her in and off we went, we had to walk through the sun to get to the pavilion and I thought I would get a photo wearing the carrier in the pavilion with the trains but that didn’t last long. The pavilion was really hot and the carrier kept her warm the day before but today it made her hot, so I had to take her out as she was getting very upset. So I think the carrier can be great for most weather situations except for when it is very warm or hot as the quality being so great and thick makes her even warmer. But the side position is a winner!!

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”.
