    Life saver

    I had two Manducas and they where just life savers. So easy to use and comfortable for me and bubs whether front or back carrying. Used with my kids from newborn up. I still occasionally carry my 2yr old if she is sleepy and we are out and about.

    Best carrier ever.

    Love my manduca. I bought one not long after bubby was born and started using it when she turned about four months. Lets her sit in a natural position and keeps her close to me. Love that you can wear her on your front, back or hip and straps are adjustable enough for hubby to use too. Recommend to all mothers that want to keep there arms free to do stuff other then holding your baby.

    Sister In Law Present

    We like it that much that I am thinking about getting one for my sister in law who is due mid November this year. She I think would love it because she has a daughter already and to be able to still get things done around the house with two cleaning and cooking. She loves mine so I think she’ll get a surprise when she gets one at her baby shower.

    Easy to use, pretty, kids love it

    I have used my manduca mainly for my last 2 children from newborns. I bought it because I needed something that was good for plus size and I didn’t have to buy extra things to use for a newborn. I love it, I can carry my 6 wk old, my 1 year old and my 3 year old in and I only have to quickly adjust the straps to accommodate each child.
    I got one of the limited edition colours after having a blue one and wanting to be just a little bit fancy. People comment on how great it looks and I’m yet to have a sore back after being out walking with the kids.
    I love that I can front, side and back carry my older kids as well especially as on my back it makes it easier for them to look around.

    Super comfort meets super style

    This is one of my favourite carriers and I own many. It is very comfortable and easy to use. There isn’t much you can get wrong with this carrier due to its user-friendlyness. I have easily gone 5 hours of walking with an 8kg baby and it is still going strong with a 10kg 12 month old. It is ergonomic for both baby and wearer and I just love that it comes with the newborn insert for no extra cost. It also has a high resell price which is fantastic for those who are worried about spending money on things that can’t be resold later. I just love that the hood can be tucked in or out and it is a much better and supportive hood than any other carrier I have used. I also love the way it looks.

    I adore my Manduca! I honestly could not live without it, far and away the best thing i have bought for my little man. I can still carry my 1 year old in a front carry without any discomfort and he is always so comfy and content in it. I used it a couple of months back when we went bushwalking and was able to carry him all day long without a problem. I dont tend to use the hip carry much, but am going to start giving it a go as little man is starting to get a bit heavy for my poor arms when he wants to be on my hip. Getting the buckles perfect took a couple of goes, but once i got them in the right postition it has been a breeze. Some reviews have commented about it being too fiddly with all the adjustments available, but that is part of what i love about it, getting it to feel just perfect. I have tried other leading carriers and none have come close to my Manduca for comfort. I use it each and every day and it has been the best thing to strenthen the bond i have with my son. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

    My baby is only 8 weeks old and we have been using a manduca carrier for over 4 weeks. We live on a mountainous farm and the easiest way to get around while we are lambing is on foot with the carrier. My little boy stays warm and dry (in light rain) suggled up against me. We have a sling but he hates it, whereas he loves the carrier, which is lucky as he spends a lot of time in it. luckily it is also very comfortable for me also.

    We went to underwater world a couple of days ago and there are several levels with lots of stairs. So it was a perfect opportunity to use the carrier in the side carrier position so we could go from attraction to attraction easily. It was really comfortable and she enjoyed sitting on my hip and being nice and warm during the cold day.
    It was also good for her as she has a cold and she was in up right position so it was a good position to help with breathing. Although as with anyone when they get sick they get tired so wanted to be cuddled to sleep rather then fall asleep in the Maduca. I see babies asleep all the time in carriers and I am sure it would be very comfortable to fall asleep in but she hasn’t fallen asleep in it yet. I still love the strength of the carrier and that her whole bottom and back is supported when she is in the carrier. It great to know she is safe.

    best prize I ever won

    I obtained my one of these little beauties when i won it in a Practical Parenting competition. I began to use it when i had another bubba who had colic and flathead and pretty much had to constantly be held. this carier turned out be my greatest blessing. unlike with the carriers i had used with my eldest, I felt with this product both me and my bub were more supposted and his weight was distributed over my body better so i avoided getting stiff and sore after longer periods of use. he always seemed comfortable and loved going in the carrier and had some of his best sleeps in it. my only downsides to the product are it is very hard to properly use without someone else to hook you in (there is a buckle between the shoulders you cannot do up or undo yourself) and the fabric it is made of will collect every bit of fluff it comes into contact with. otherwise a great product and i still recommend it

    Great support for the little one, hurts my shoulders

    I thought this would be a fantastic carrier as it supports the baby’s hips. Unfortunately, as with all carriers like this, it hurts my shoulders and back. I really need wide straps on my carrier otherwise I am in a lot of pain. I can only use these types of carriers for about an hour and even then they hurt.

    I really love my Manduca!!!

    I really love my Manduca!!! I had a Baby Bjorn and it does not compare! My Manduca is really comfortable and great for carrying my baby & toddler around. My baby is really happy when being carried around in it. I’m really glad I found it!

    This carrier was my sanity saver.

    I had tried two other carriers that bub just screamed every time I put her in. But then I bought this one on a recommendation from another mum. It was the best thing I did. Within ten minutes of being in the carrier my bub was asleep. It feels very secure and baby loves it, I love it too cause I am able to get things done around the house.

    Difficult to Use

    The carrier has great material for washing however it is not user friendly when it comes to putting on and adjusting with different users. It’s great that it carries babies up to the weight of 20kg however if your child is this heavy it’s not comfortable at all. I’ve purchased a BabyBjorn and this carrier is much easier to use and adjust.

    Versatile and Comfy

    I love my Manduca. It has great adjustability to help fit both me and bub comfortable. We can also share it with dad who can adjust it for his size. Crossable straps are excellent for front carrying to give extra back support. This carrier really does grow with your bub, I have even carried my 2 year old in it.

    Best baby carrier

    I have purchased this item recently for my baby and I must say it is just so comfortable and easy to carry my baby in! She loves being close to me, she can sleep in it and i can get stuff done around the house or out shopping. It is great quality and value for money so worth it and will be great to pass on to my sister when she has children!

    Simply love my Manduca

    I started off using a baby Bjorne and moved to a Manduca after attending a pretty awesome Kanga class. I’m not too sure what I would do without it actually, we use it pretty much every day weather it’s a 5k hike up a mountain or chillin on my back while I cook dinner baby loves her Manduca time just as much as I do! It’s safe, comfortable and so easy to use!

    Great carrier (part 2)

    I posted a review on this yesterday but I forgot to explain why I only gave three stars for design. I find it very difficult with all the buckles to get a good fit where baby doesn’t hang when I lean forward, even when I tighten all the buckles he still hangs a bit and I end up with an uncomfortable fit. Although I still think it’s a great carrier, I’ve decided to sell mine and get one that’s a bit more customisable.

    Great carrier

    I purchased a navy manduca baby carrier about 4 months ago, at first I found it fantastic but lately I just haven’t been able to get it to fit comfortably this is probably because bub is getting heavier, I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong. It is easy to use, however, and looks great.

    The best baby carrier I've ever tried.

    I had one of those older style oens when I first needed to use one but was given one fo these for my second baby. No doubt about it this was far better than the one I ahd used. It was very easy to get baby in and out of and all up this one was the best one I ever used.

    Great product

    I one of these when my child was little. I loved them I had full support of her in the carrier. She was comfortable and felt safe next to my chest.
    Very great design. I like having my child in the front rather than having them on my back.
    Recommend this product to another mother or father, and have just recently bought my friend when to try out
