Product Description

Manduca Baby Carrier carries baby in the “M position” – best for baby’s comfort and development*

Reduced fatigue for wearer, with weight carried on the hip and more padding in the straps.

Broad sitting base for baby while supporting thighs

Built-in newborn insert for use from 3.5 kgs

Baby’s back and neck are supported, and support extends as baby grows

Integrated headrest/sunshade tucks away when not in use

Two handed unclasp action of hip clips for extra security

The Manduca 3-in-1 baby carrier really does grow with your child from newborn to pre-school, making it excellent value, as you will use it for years.

From birth, it’s a baby front carrier, with your newborn held safely by the built-in infant pouch (newborn insert). From approximately three months old, your Manduca carrier becomes a baby hip carrier, then finally, from 6 months, a baby back carrier.

Unfold the hidden head and neck support (when needed), to cradle your baby’s sleeping head. The ingenious extendable back provides great support for bigger children (up to 20kg) or extra head support for newborns.

Manduca is all about having fun and enjoying the freedom of babywearing!


Machine wash at 30 degrees with mild detergent, do not bleach, tumble dry, iron or dry clean.

*Manduca supports healthy hip development

In the M-Position, a baby’s knees are in line with their belly button and gently spread to the sides (like a frog’s); but and legs are forming an M. Your baby’s pelvis will slide to the front; the back will assume the age-appropriate, rounded C-shape.In the M-Position, there is no unnecessary strain and the possibility of later skeletal malformations is greatly reduced. But not only is the M-Position orthopedically correct, it’s also simply comfortable.
