Key Features:

  • Half buckle carrier made from soft 100% organic cotton
  • Weight tested from 3.5 kg (7.7 lb) to 15 kg (33 lb)
  • Realistically works brilliantly right from newborn until around 9-12 months.  Really shines for newborns and smaller babies.
  • Panel adjusts in both width and height via the "twist" mechanism
  • Wonderful soft padded supportive neck cushion that offers optimal support as baby grows
  • No cords or buttons or bits, just one buckle on the waistband at the back no where near baby.  Making this carrier a wonderfully soft option for newborns.  Gives the feel of the wrap but the ease of a carrier.
  • Very lightweight and compact (around 500g only, which is almost half the weight of other half buckles in the library collection).  Packs down small.
  • For the parent it features a very lightly padded curved waistband and spreadable tie on shoulder straps that mould around your body to give a perfect fit everytime.
  • Shoulder straps are much shorter than other half buckle carriers in the library.  Manduca offer 2 lengths, regular and long and this is the regular length.
  • Works particularly well for petite parents and more average sized parents, as the shorter straps give less fabric to handle and means this carrier feels much less indudating that other half buckles and the straps do not trail along the floor as much while tying.  However, I would not recommend this carrier for plus sized parents - instead the Lenny Lamb Hybrid and the Stokke Limas make much better options.
  • Offers 3 carrying positions - front parent facing, hip and back carry.  Although this carrier works best in a front parent facing carry.

The Manduca Twist is a lovely option for newborns.  Giving you the feeling of a wrap with the ease of a carrier and the perfect fit everytime that comes with tying.  Great for parents of different heights and shapes sharing a carrier.

Hire it and see how it works for you! If you love it and decide to purchase your own, I can order these on demand and offer you a £10 discount off the purchase price too, so you don't lose out to try before you buy!  Or you can extend your hire and hire for the whole newborn period before moving onto a bigger next step option.  Saving both the planet and your wallet from bying something new that you might only need for a few months.

Please note that slings and carriers are extremely safe when used properly, however misuse can cause injury to yourself or your child. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are using the sling correctly and that you and your child are safe at all times when using the sling. If you are at all worried or concerned at all please do get in touch and ask for help. Sheen Slings cannot be held responsible for any accident that results in injury or death whilst the sling is in your care.

You remain responsible for the sling or carrier for the duration of your hire. Loss or damaged will be charged at cost of replacement so please look after the carrier and treat it as you would something of your own. That said, normal wear and tear is expected so please do feel able to use it fully and there is no need to wash before sending it back as I rewash everything on return.

If you need to wash, this sling can be machine washed at 30 degrees with a liquid detergent and then line dried. For small posset marks it can be quicker and easier to simply spot clean with a soft damp cloth.
