Testimonials & Reviews
It’s been a little while since my last review. I’ve used the Manduca twice in that time to do the food shopping. Both times my 9.8kg 1yr old daughter was strapped to my front. The first time I tried the straps in the traditional way and found them to be uncomfortable. The cross over is way more comfortable for me, as my little bubba gets bigger. She fell asleep both times, she’s really comfy in the Manduca. Occasionally she wants to get out because she wants to crawl around. She’s almost walking so I’m sure this has something to do with her wanting to explore. It doesnt take me long to settle her though.
I have an Ergo as well and I haven’t used it since receiving the Manduca because I much rather the Manduca! I’ve been telling a few friends who have new bubs or bubs on the way about the Manduca, and how good it is. One friend was about to buy another brand (not mentioning any names… it allows bub to face out) and I pulled out my Manduca. I explained how it’s better for both baby and mum and is so comfy. I love that it has support for newborns, no need to spend extra money which is awesome and important when babies can get so expensive.
I’ll take some more photos soon and I’ll keep spreading the word about Manduca!

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.

*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”.

International Babywearing Week at the inaugural Sydney Manduca Babywearing Walk, October 5 2010, at Manly Beach.
The theme this year is “Safe Babywearing. Close enough to kiss.”
Manly turned on a beautiful day for the Sydney Manduca Baby wearing Walk to launch International Baby wearing Week.
Mums (and one dad!) wearing their babies walked the length of Manly Beach before congregating for a picnic at the Queenscliff playground.
How delightful to see so many mums and bubs enjoying the closeness of baby wearing.
