Using A Sling - Mei Tais
The basic design of a Mei Tai is a front panel with two pairs of straps. One pair ties across the wearers back (creating an 'X' shape) and around baby and the other ties around the waist distributing the weight evenly across the shoulders, back and hips.
It is a very simple, yet very supportive style. Once again, there are no buckles, or rings, just fabric, and padding for extra support. They can be used for front (with baby always facing inwards) and back carries and can be used from newborn through to toddler.
Mei Tais are great for nursing on the go. Another advantage is that most are reversible - the Tula has a gorgeous, different print on both sides.
The Babyhawk has a gorgeous print on one side reversing to a plain/neutral colour.
The Hop-Tye is available in a gorgeous selction of colours and prints as well as neutral darker-toned solid colours.
The Didy-Tai is a Mei Tai made from a Didymos Woven Wrap, so it's gorgeous and supportive both for the wearer and baby.
Mei Tais are very supportive, relatively easy to use and are available in a gorgeous selection of colours and prints.
