Manduca reviews
  • "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

I compared the different ergo models with the manduca in store and bought a standard manduca. It was more comfortable and seemed better designed and overall a better product. I used it straight away to go from the car into shops. My 5 month old transitioned from the car to the carrier asleep and stayed asleep. I (& my body) have been missing the use of carrier since my baby became too heavy, (now 9kg), for the hug-a-bub, which I am a fan of. Although the specs say that the hug-a-bub goes up to X weight, I found that being stretch fabric it was uncomfortable and sagged/pulled. I'm very happy with the Manduca thus far and my Fiance likes the olive colour ;-)

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 (offering your baby a way to face out to see the world, but with the important comfort of being able to turn away from frightening or unfamiliar sights). At this age, you may wish to customise the manduca to perfection by purchasing the optional "Size-it" accessory, which gives a wonderful seat for babies in this "in-between" stage after the newborn stage but before they are sitting up. From from 6 months, babies love being held in manduca in the baby back carrier position. This allows them to feel the strength and support of the parent but with the ability to look about. Think back to when you were "piggy backed" and how wonderful that always felt. 

When worn at the front, you can 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), great for back carries, or extra head support for newborns.

Manduca is all about having fun and enjoying the freedom of babywearing. As one of the many happy customers wrote "Manduca makes me feel like I'm wearing a baby, not a baby carrier."

"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”. Manduca is the only soft structured carrier endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association.
