If you have been following my Baby-Wearing in Las Vegas series of posts, you know that the Mei Tai has a super special place in my heart. It was my first real baby carrier and very literally changed the way I parent. The freedom it gave me was life changing. In Part 2 of this series you can read of my Mei Tai love.
I wanted to give you all an opportunity to check out the Mei Tai (MT). My first MT was a handmade one. So I was very excited to be able to review the catbirdbaby Mei Tai. CatBirdBaby is a leader in the baby-wearing industry.
In addition to making the Mei Tai (in my opinion the best Mei Tai on the market for quality and price), they also have their version of a soft-structured buckle carrier the Pikkolo.
The catbirdbaby Mei Tai is super high quality. The shoulders are extremely comfortable. So comfortable they are my favorite shoulders of any carrier I own. I love it.
The catbirdbaby Mei Tai can be worn a variety of ways. I may be wrong, but I don’t know of any other Mei Tai that can be used with the baby facing out. It can be used from Birth-Toddler (up to 35 lbs). My son is 32lbs and I am still comfortably wearing him in a back carry on a regular basis. This carrier also has loops to help adjust the width to your specific baby, as well as a sleeping hood that is easy to hook up once baby has fallen asleep.
“Your Catbird Baby mei tai can be worn on the front facing in or out, on the hip, or back. With just a little practice, the tying methods quickly become second nature. We recommend the back carry for 5-6 months and up. Do not carry your baby front facing forward until he or she can support his or her head.” – per catbirdbaby
This carrier retails for $75-$89 which is a wonderful price for a carrier that can be worn so many different ways and by multiple people in your family as they aren’t sized carriers.
