I let my 7 (almost 8) y/o niece carry ds in a mei tai. She was born in West Africa where it is common for young children to cary babies on their backs in a cloth. She remembers this and has been begging to carry him for months. I do a rucksac-type carry on her, putting the baby up high on her back and doing a tibetan tie in the front. She loves it and so does the babe, but I ask frequently if she is tired and don't let her carry him too long.
