The Original carrier: manduca First®

Manduca First – the original Manduca carrier was designed to be versatile and adjustable, fitting a large range of body types. The infant insert allows you to carry a small newborn, yet it still provides cushion and support for bulkier babies.

Soft and durable Material

Built to last – the Manduca First comes in two different variations for your unique preferences. Hemp Cotton Mix is uniquely soft and light, while a Pure Cotton Manduca First is sturdy and comfortable. The material is excellent too: 100% organic cotton on the inside and out.

manduca First : in-built infant seat

Manduca First has a deep seat, providing cushy comfort for your babies bottom. The seat is a standard size and while this works wonderfully for most children whose legs can comfortably dangle down when seated in the carrier, it is not suitable for small infants whose legs are often too tight.

The carrier comes with an in-built infant seat that allows the carrier to be used for newborns.

 

 

Easily adjustable with buttons, there are 3 settings which cater to babies of different sizes.

The buttons can be snapped onto the outside of the carrier. Lift the panel up, put on the arm-straps and you’re ready for all the adventuring with your little one!

 

 

Not using the seat? No worries! Simply tuck it away using the elastic bands on the inside of the carrier.

Orthopaedically correct, simply perfect: the M-Position®

The spread-squat position is the natural position that a newborn automatically takes when he/she is lifted up.

Your baby automatically bends his/her legs – like a monkey – to instinctively get ready to be carried. We at manduca call this the M-Position, because your baby’s bottom, together with the bent legs, forms a large “M”. M for manduca.

manduca ensures your child is continuously in the M-Position, which is recommended by orthopaedists and midwives alike. The M-Position is the natural sitting and carrying position of a child, as it takes the pressure caused by the child’s weight off the still sensitive hip and spine.
