Testimonials & Reviews
It’s been a little bit of time since my last review and I have been using my Manduca a few times.
I’ve done a couple of shopping trips for about 30-40 mins and miss 5.5mths was ok but started to get cranky as she wanted to look around and interact with her sister and in the front carry position it was hard for her to do this.
Also I found it rather hard getting her into the carrier from her car seat. I found the straps were dragging on the ground as I was adjusting her in the front pouch, also without a mirror it was hard to find the side straps to click into and I was having a hard time adjusting it to a comfortable fit.
We went out yesterday and I had my husband help me adjust the carrier and he was a bit perplexed by it all. He also commented that it seemed harder to use than our current one and he wondered how I managed to do it alone. I did find it hard to sit down while wearing my bub as the front hip section sat funny.
The good thing about the Manduca is in wearing it and bub I didn’t get any pain in my lower back or hips at all, I was having some trouble with pulling on my shoulders but I do think this is from struggling to adjust it properly. I did wake up the next day without pain which is a huge benefit.
The straps, construction and quality of the Manduca is excellent. I feel very confident that miss 5.5mths is very safe and secure whilst being carried.
Machine wash at 30 degrees with mild detergent, do not bleach, tumble dry, iron or dry clean.

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.
