I have a 2 month old and I love my Moby, but since he is getting big; 12 + pounds and counting; it is getting a little too stretchy for me and I am always adjusting it to tighten it up. Also, it does take some time to get it on when he is fussy, so I really want a mei tai. I even thought about getting a stronger wrap like the Bali Breeze etc, but I am not sure. I just hate having to wrap and then wrap some more, to wear it; especially out in public. So I am set on a mei tai. Through all my research, it has come between the Kozy and the Catbird carriers. I do have an Ergo, but I am waiting for colder weather and my little one to get older to use it. I want a mei tai that is sturdy, comfortable, and will be good to use now and through his toddler years. I do like the Catbird because it has a hood on it, but the Kozy has nicer patterns and it looks like it has a higher back. I did like the Mei Tai Baby, but I have read that the straps are narrow and the material is not very supportive. I did make a ring sling, but he dislikes it and he keeps on sliding on an angle which make him very fussy.
I am not sure which one to get or if there really is a major difference in these. Is one mei tai really better than the rest?
Any advice would be great.
