manduca® Duo -

the innovative connection

Baby carrier or baby sling? With the manduca Duo you have a carrier and sling in one – and all the freedom that entails. That is because the manduca Duo has an innovative click & tie system that combines all the advantages of the baby carrier and baby sling. The soft sling fabric is especially snug for your baby, and you can put it on or take it off easily at any time. No matter where you and your baby go in the stylish manduca Duo – both of you will enjoy intensive closeness, maximum flexibility and tremendous comfort!

Light and flexible for everyday use

Clever details, such as the Duo clip on the back straps that allows the Duo to be put on quickly and securely and the slip-through protector that has been firmly stitched onto the carrier, ensure that the manduca Duo is particularly reliable and easy to use, and comfortable in every way – even for brand new parents and their newborns.

Hamburg was particularly cold when we conducted our photo shoot for the manduca Duo, but everyone stayed cheerful in spite of the typical Hanseatic breeze. You can view the “making of” video here and experience the manduca Duo at its best.

Functional and smart

The Duo clip on the back straps was developed especially for us, and makes it possible to place your baby in the carrier quickly and securely.

The removable hip belt makes it easier to carry heavier babies by distributing your child’s weight evenly across your hips – something that is also good for your back. It is also very convenient to use: just zip it on and you're ready to go!

The securely stitched slip-through protector guarantees that even newborns can sit securely in the manduca Duo.

The manduca Duo ensures that your child is continuously sitting in the ergonomic M-Position® (spread-squat position), which is recommended by orthopaedists and midwives alike.

The Duo back support has been designed to adapt to any body size while ensuring an optimum distribution of weight. The straps can be moved freely and adjusted as desired.

Safety-tested aluminium rings with finger guards allow you to tighten the sling until it is snug – so that your baby is always in the right position.

Just zip it on –
the removable hip belt

When your baby grows, you’ll be well prepared with the manduca Duo. That is because the hip belt ensures that even heavier babies can be carried with ease. Just zip it on and you're ready to go!

You can also go without

In the first few months, your baby is very light, and you’ll be fine without the hip belt. Particularly after giving birth by Caesarean section, mothers can do without the belt in order to avoid any additional pressure on the sensitive belly area. The manduca Duo allows you to choose.


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.
