Testimonials & Reviews

I researched baby carriers before bub was born as I was keen not to put my baby's spine and pelvis under strain. Also I have suffered from back and neck problems for years and wanted something that wouldn't cause me any pain. I initially had a Hug-a-bub soft sling for the first 3 months and have now graduated to the Manduca (although they say they can be used from newborn, but I wasn't keen). I think it is a great carrier and holds the baby in the M position with the bum below the knees. The market leading carrier (Baby Bjorn) puts too much strain on the infant's pelvis as their legs just dangle straight down. The Manduca is very adjustable, as my husband and I have different sized hips. Baby didn't like being carrier lower down but as soon as I raised her up by attaching the belt around my waist she was much happier. It's an extremely well made product and feels very safe and secure. The shoulder and waist support straps provide a balanced load so there is no strain on my neck or shoulders. The only challenging thing was putting her in it while out and about. I had to sit in the boot of the car to put her in the carrier from her car seat, luckily we have a Jeep so I can do that, otherwise maybe you could sit in the car seat and do it. All in a very well designed and made baby carrier which I would highly recommend.

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”.
