The Differences Between Baby K’ Tan vs Moby Evolution Wrap
As many of the baby wraps available to parents today look so similar and in fact, many of them are.
But there are a few important differences between these two wraps that could mean the difference between a beautiful and successful babywearing experience or a stressful, frustrating experience.
Here are the key differences between the Baby K’ Tan vs Moby Evolution Wrap:
- The biggest difference between these two wraps is the way that you actually use them, the Baby K’ Tan comes ready to use out of the box with no wrapping required. The Moby Evolution is one long piece of fabric so you will need to get to grips with the wrapping process before you can use it.
- The Baby K’ Tan has 5 carrying positions – newborn carry, front inward facing, front side facing, front-outward facing, and hip carry. While the Moby Evolution only has 3 – newborn carry, front inward-facing, and hip carry.
- The Baby K’ Tan is made from 100% cotton while the Moby Evolution is made from 70% viscose and 30% cotton making it lighter weight, contains more stretch, and is breathable.
- The other main difference between these two baby wraps is that the Baby K’ Tan comes in 6 size options and the Moby Evolution is a one size fits all baby wrap.

What Makes The Baby K’ Tan Better Than The Moby Evolution Wrap
The Baby K’ Tan has to be one of the easiest wrap baby carriers to put on, there is no huge amount of fabric for you to figure out how to wrap.
It is straight out of the box, over your head, and away to go, while the Moby Evolution comes as one single long piece of fabric that, to be fair takes a little while to perfect that wrapping technique.
It is also available in several different sizes making it easy for parents to find the perfect fit for their body, while the Moby only comes in one size fits all.
The Baby K’ Tan comes with a great range of carrying positions including the front-outward facing carry. The Moby only has three carrying positions and the front-outward facing carry is not one of them.
Then there is the easy storage solution that means the Baby K’ Tan can easily fit in a diaper bag, while the bulky Moby Evolution does not come with its own carry bag and will not fit in a diaper bag.
The Moby Evolution wrap is a cotton viscose mix making it lightweight, breathable, and stretchy. It is a one size fits all wrap that is perfect for newborns and offers three carrying positions, newborn carry, front inward-facing, and hip carry.
It is suitable for babies from 8 – 33 pounds ensuring that it should see you through a huge portion of your babywearing journey.
The Moby is one long piece of fabric that is approximately 18 feet long, it has no buckles or straps to adjust making it suitable for almost any sized person.
The cotton viscose blend fabric helps to keep the baby cool in the warmer months as it is breathable but this wrap can also be used in the colder months just as successfully as there is so much fabric available you can easily layer your baby up to keep them warm.
The Moby Evolution comes in a vast range of colors and fabrics so you are sure to find at least one that you love. It also comes with a coordinating carry bag to keep your wrap clean and tidy.
Features of Moby Wrap
The Moby Evolution is made from a cotton blend material that makes it stretchy and super breathable. This makes it a really comfortable fabric to wear for both you and your baby and will not irritate your baby’s delicate skin.
As the fabric is breathable it is a great option for the warmer summer months as it will prevent your baby from overheating.
Color and print range
Moby has an amazing range of both colors and patterns available and although this has nothing to with how the wrap performs it is always nice to have a really great looking wrap. There should be at least one pattern or color that you and your partner can agree on.
One size fits all
You can not get this wrong as there is no sizing chart needed, one size really does fit all. So no matter if you are a petite size 8 and your partner is a six-foot basketball player this wrap will comfortably fit both of you.
Pros of Baby Wrap
- It is fully machine washable
- The wrap allows you to spread the weight of your baby across your torso and back, so your shoulders do not suffer.
- Great variety of colors and designs
- The fabric is not too stretchy.
- As it is a one size fits all it can easily be shared between family members without the need to purchase a new one.
Cons of Baby Wrap
- Quite difficult to learn to tie in the beginning
- Instructions included are not great
- It does include a carry bag, but the wrap can be very bulky once it is all stored.
- It is quite bulky and does not easily fit into a diaper bag.
