Testimonials & Reviews

I got my manduca yesterday morning but as I was about to go out, didn’t have time to practice using it first so it stayed in the box for a day. Brought it with me today as bubba (9.2 kg and 12 mos.) and I met up with friends for a picnic lunch. It was a bit fiddly with all the straps as I’ve been using a baby bjorne when he was a bit younger and a cloth sling at the moment. Once I did the straps though, bubba looked comfy (even if his legs looked quite spread out (carried him in the front for today). Mind you, have been so used carrying him on the hip so I’ll try the hip position next time. Apart from the straps, the material was quit soft and comfy, and loved the padding. I loved the fact that I could use this till he’s 20 kg and that even when I was walking around for more than am hour, my back and shoulders didn’t hurt. I’ll try to get more used to the straps and carry him on the hip position this weekend

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”.
