I am quite in love with our Manduca.  It does take some practice like other carriers but once you find the adjustments right for you it is great.  Love that it has an inbuilt newbie insert, is cool in the tropics, and can be worn by my husbane too.

With baby #3, a 3 year old with her head in the clouds and a 5 year old needing to get to school everyday, this has been a life saver!!

 

 

It can be a bit tricky to adjust, but it's easy to use, even for a newborn. I love acing my hands free to Carr school bags and wrangle my toddler.

Comfy as!!

Two thumbs up :)

I bought the manduca because I liked that I could put my baby in from newborn and not buy an extra insert. It has been a lifesaver!

PROS:

  • My son sleeps in it and I am able to do my housework and spend time with my 3 yr old instead of spending time trying to get him to sleep.
  • I can feed him in the carrier.
  • I like that you can carry your baby on the front and the back and it goes up to toddler age. (We tried the 3 yr old in it and he was very comfy.)
  • I can wear it all day and not have a sore back!.
  • It is adjustable.It fits both DP and I comfortably.

CONS:

  • Got a little hot in it but baby was born in January and we wore it from birth. Didn't pose much of a problem with Sydney heat.

My third daughter is my first summer baby, with my first 2 I wore them in another carrier that doesn't suit the south australian heat, the Organic Manduca DOES! unlike the ergo the newborn safety attachment is all ready to go and doesn't add extra bulk, its a light but sturdy piece of material that is still soft against babies skin. The gorgeous, soft feeling, breathable material is just right on the hot days AND I can feed whilst running around after my elder two children. They have definitely thought about safety when designing the waist clip, it also has an extra elastic, just incase the clip came apart. The padded straps were evenly distributed over my lower and upper back, although I've only had the carrier a few days, I'm still adjusting to doing the top clip up but Im sure this will come with a bit of practice. I love being able to change the carrier to different positions, my baby was fast asleep in seconds while I was wearing her on my back whilst cooking dinner, it truly is a second pair of hands! You need to make sure you watch the you tube tutorials as there are a few things after wearing that I picked up, like lengthening the under arm straps for feeding the bub position etc

(the above post for "Leah Tait" is my post, noticed it didnt come out under my user name for some reason? could you please disregard that review and have this as my review please.)

I have four children and have tried a different carrier with each one and have finally found my favourite!  The Manduca carrier is very comfortable, no sore back from using it for a period of time.  I also like that the child can be worn on the front or back and that the straps are able to be crossed over for extra comfort.

The bonus was that this can be used from newborn without needing to buy anything extra.

Can highly recommend.

On the go Mama

I am a mum on the go so I really love my Manduca Baby Carrier. It is very comfortable for both myself and bub for long periods of time.

My 11 month old is in a very comfortable position with the way it is designed.

I would recommend this fantastic carrier to anyone looking at a sling or carrier, very versatile.
