ok ok. So I got another carrier ...


When I was perusing Niki's website to order a sling for my friend, I saw that she was now offering Mei Tai carriers from Babyhawk. I had been checking out mei tais for a couple of months now, because I was looking for a carrier I could use to put Ladybug on my back while doing things that I couldn't with her on my front. After researching, I was excited that Niki was offering the Babyhawks because the carrier part is bigger than on other mei tais I had seen, plus they have the headrest so I could wear Ladybug at a mere 3 months without any problems. She has now even fallen asleep while I was cooking lunch. (You can, of course, also wear the baby in front.)


It is very nicely made and very comfortable. The ties are rather long, (which I wasn't use to) but they are not a problem. There is a definite learning curve to getting her on my back. The first few times Chowder spotted me. Now I still kneel on my bed while I'm strapping her on. I have been able to get so much done with her on my back. She is such a perfect baby and never cries, but I hate to leave her laying on her back under her playgym or in her seat for a hour at a time eventhough she doesn't complain. Chowder is looking forward to getting to use it, too. That is the other nice thing about it. So, hats off to Niki again!

**Please note:The prices listed on her site are in Canadian dollars**

Interesting... I think the fabric looks nice and softer than regular babycarriers? Mine was ok, but the fabric was really course and i didn't like it rubbing against the baby's skin.

Hey there - So glad you got a mei tei. As you know, I always loved mine (Kozy Carrier). I actually used it with Nicholas starting at birth. I never actually tried the back carry though, but may soon. Don't really put him in carriers much anymore, but your blog has reminded me I need to give the back carry a try.

Love, love, love mei teis!
