I think the new kangaroo shirts that are available on the market are great for the newborn stage but the shirts are expensive!  $50 to $70 for a shirt?  Me thinks not.  Anyone have experience making your own kangaroo care system?  I have the moby wrap but found it annoying to wrap and rewrap every time I got my first baby out.

I could not find any other photo on the web of a DIY

 

 

Any thoughts?

If you liked how a Moby worked but didn't like all the wrapping then you might like a Baby K'tan. I found mine to be extremely easy and useful!

I have a carrier similar to a baby ktan (I had a ktan that was too big so I passed it along) called a MyBabyNest and agree it is all I love about jersey knit wraps but super easy to use.

 

ETA: I preferred how the baby nest did a wide spread over the back to the ktan's design
