I want to buy a K'Tan or a Moby. I had a Moby seven years ago with the second DS and loved it. I hear the K'Tan is great though. I'm a little concerned about the sizing though. I guess if I lose weight within a few months I'll need a new size?

I have both and I have actually never been able to figure out the K'tan.  I loved the moby with baby #3, but didn't like it as much with my summer babies.

I think the ktan is a great idea but I don't like that you can't adjust it. I started out with a ring sling and it was wonderful. In hindsight I probably would have gotten a woven but I had no experience - didn't really wear dd1. I'd go with versatility: something adjustable. smile.gif

Same here. I bought a K'tan and had to exchange it because it was too big. The next size down was too tight. Will be getting a Moby instead.

I haven't used a moby.  I'm loving my ktan.  I'm willing to trade adjustability for ease of use.  I already have an ergo, so I was just looking for something better for little ones and easy to pop in and out.  I would think you'd need to lose a significant amount of weight to need a new size.  I've used mine daily from day 4 to almost 3 months now.

On size changes and the K'tan -- My baby is 10.5 months, over 21 lbs and I can still use it. I keep it in the car as a back-up. It's not my first pick, but it does still work fine. Most people don't use the Moby past 6 months because the stretch of the fabric tends to sag with the weight of the baby, but with the k'tan being a fixed size, I find that to be a good thing.

I've tried both and prefer the k'tan. For me it was much quicker and smaller and thus easier. It fit great for me.
