mei tai?
Sun, 02-11-2007 - 3:20pm


I have a 6 mos old and am looking to get a few more slings. I currently have a moby wrap and mamma's milk pouch.
Was looking to get some opinions on Mei Tais? Specifically looking at Babyhawk, Kozy? Anyone have any opinions?

Also looking at peanut shell or hotsling (love the patterned fabric, my Mamma's Milk pouch is brown-kinda boring!!!!)

I love my MTs. I have a Babyhawk (that I'm trying to sell actually) and 2 Mei Tai Baby's. I prefer the MTBs only because I managed to get my hands on the older Zippy style and can make interchangable panels to go in it. We also have a Beco, which has a structured waist that DH uses because a MT is to diffucult for him (hehe). It's also a great carrier.

I know, probably helped you none. Definitely check out the links the PP posted. And look for a NINO ( group in your area. They are a fantastic resource.
