This carrier is exceptional
Manduca ticked all the right boxes for me when I was researching carriers. We purchased it before our son arrived because we wanted to be prepared which in hindsight was a risk for various reasons. However bothbaby and I could not be happier with our purchase. It's certified organic so you know there's no nasties for baby, or if you like me suffer from uber sensitive skin, and it's extremely comfortable for both parties as well as supportive. The other thing that I wanted in a carrier was to be able to use from birth without an extra add on bec...ause really setting up for a baby is hard and expensive enough without "extras" that your ultimately only going to use for a few months. Another added bonus is the extension zip at the front which grows with baby.
Amazing support and so easy to use. Can’t fault it!
I had my sister’s old one from when my baby was a newborn and then treated myself to my own new one at 5 months. I was drawn to the Manduca because of its proper positioning of baby’s hips and the support right to the legs. The endorsements of Australian Physiotherapists, Hip Dysplasia Australia and the Australian Breastfeeding Association gave me extra confidence too. The carrier fits both me and my tall husband perfectly and we can even both use it in the crossed position which we find even more secure and comfy. My baby was super snuggly and...slept a lot in my Manduca and I never ever worried about her health or safety in it. I also never got any pain wearing her. Hands down best carrier ever and I recommend it to friends all the time.
The true newborn essential!!
Our Manduca has been with us since my now 2 year old was a little Bubba. It's the only baby carrier I've found that doesn't hurt my shoulders and hips (even carryingg a 13kg toddler!). It's the #1 thing I recommend to all new Mums and is the only investment you can guarantee will get lots of use. Love love love. ❤️❤️
I only wish I had bought one earlier! It is exceedingly helpful around the home and out and about. Wonderful for getting the shopping done with your free hands. Plus, who doesn't love baby cuddles next to your chest? Additionally, because it is supportive and has the built in hood it is truly great for when baby is feeling ill and needs to be close to mum or dad.
Has been a life saver
Having a complicated and stressful pregnancy my baby boy cane into the world early. He was very unsettled I tried everything and several carriers none helped he just cried more. With 5 children it was hard carrying him in my arms all day. I went to a kanga training class and used a Manduca and he loved it. Not only was he not crying he was laughing and he went to sleep. Has made my day so much easier. I have the pure cotton one as my baby has bad eczema it’s a great product could not live without it
Better than so many I've tried
Since having my first son I've tried many baby carriers- both that I've bought or been given as gifts. But, for just over a year now I've been using a Manduca and I can honestly say that it's been the best I've tried!!! So adjustable, so snug for Bubs and so easy to put on! I'm still using it now with my 2 year old and ensure I always have it in the car! When friends ask me about baby carriers I always tell them to do their research but tell them that they can't go wrong with a Manduca!

I don’t go anywhere with out my manduca
I tried numerous other brands of carriers and found the Manduca was the most adjustable to me and my baby, getting a beautiful supported carry is easy in the Manduca, and so comfortable. I take my manduca every where I go, when ever needed baby will be on me in an optimal position for her spine and hips, and happy to sleep or watch the world go by.
Perfect from newborn to 2yrs (with some accessories)
With the manduca accessories (size it, eliptical zip in and extend) this carrier is awesome for babies comfort and parent! from brand new baby straight out of the hospital to over 2 years old!! The accessories make sure your baby is fully supported in optimal positioning meaning they are comfortable, happy and getting ALL the advantages of babywearing!
I start my mummy jourmey with one of the more common brand carriers and i couldn't believe the difference when i tried a manduca!! My husband loved it, i loved it and most importantly my bub loved it! He still loves being up in the manduca and he is now 2.
How anyone survives without a good baby carrier is beyond me.
Best All Rounder!
I've been babywearing for just over 3 years when my first child was born, expecting second bub and will be wearing this child aswell. I have easily tried over 100 different types of stretchies, wovens, ring slings and soft structured carriers. I also started a babywearing group shortly after my child was born and over the years have established a carrier library to help others enter the world of keeping baby close. I have my own manduca ssc and we have one in our lending library. I often recommend the manduca for the following reasons,
Best carrier ever!!!
I love my manduca as my lil princess is very cuddley when it comes to nap times, so wearing my manduca means i can exercise and cuddle her while she naps. The manduca material is so soft and comfy to wear, it doesnt feel like your wearing it :) love it for kangatraining and walking :) . Very easy to use and transport :) .
Love love love
I love this carrier, i love the hands free ability to still be able to interact with my 2 year old while have cuddles and knowing my baby is safe and comfortable. Its so very easy to use.
I have problems with my neck and shoulders, but using this carrier it hasnt irritated it and doeznt affect this problem if anything it really supports the shoulders and back when using this amazing carrier.
Tried and purchased other carriers. Best way to describe difference is others felt like carrying a carrier this feels like carrying a baby! Snug, supportive and loved by Bub and parents!!! Highly recommend. Good for warmer weather too. Love the hood also! Nice and comfortable to wear. Won't regret choosing this one!
Wouldn't want to be without it!!
Both hubby and I, and baby of course, love it!!! It's our favourite go-to carrier and we've tried MANY! As a physio and babywearing consultant I also recommend it. Very adjustable, comfy and breathable (organic cotton is my favourite). Have used this with my babe from birth to now a toddler!
Must have for every baby
It's really really must have. I got this when I had to travel with my 6weeks bub. It comes with newborn insert so didn't need to buy anything extra. It also has a inbuilt head support, just pull it out when u need it.
I carried him for 5 days in sydney travelling in trains, bus, ferry all the time. Ge used to sleep all cuddked up in this carrier. Wiuld cry if i took him out:-)) I didn't have any backache or shoulder pain at all. I didn't want to share as I loved carrying him. Lol.
It has so many adjustments so it fits anyone who wants to ...
This is the Best Carrier! I can't live without it!
This is a fantastic baby carrier. It can be used from birth as it has an inbuilt infant attachment (no need to purchase it separately). It is made from organic cotton. Most importantly it keeps the baby in the correct ergonomic position and is comfortable to wear!! I have worn it all day without aching shoulders or back. It can be used to carry the child on the front, back and hip and has the option to cross over the straps on front carry. It can carry children up to 20kg, I can carry my 4 year old on my back. It has many adjustable bits so it ...does pay to spend some time getting it to suit you which can be a bit of a pain if you are swapping the carrying of the child frequently but you get to know your preferences after a while. It can get a little hot after a while so you just dress you and bub appropriately. So comfortable for mum and bub, multi position carrier, high weight limit, can be used from birth Can be hot to wear and a bit fiddly to adjust but didn't really bother me.
