hum... that's interesting that that second site says to tie in the middle of baby's back if he/she doesn't have head control yet... I've been tying mine under her bum and she seems secure enough, I have a Babyhawk XT and it sort of forms a pocket. Of course I don't do anything particularly vigorous with her in it either... still, food for thought.

congrats on the new mei tai!

it took me 3 weeks to get up the nerve to use it LOL...but now I love it.
I still am a little too timid to try back carries

darkpear - I have a Babyhawk XT and usually tie it around his back too... but if it feels secure to you, then go with it!

I just learned a new way to tie the Mei Tai for a back carry - I posted here...

Though, honestly, I have not yet put the baby on my back with it yet. I've mostly been carrying her on my front.

Sometimes I tie the straps around her back, sometimes around her bum. It really depends on what she is doing. If she is nursing, I tend to tie it around her back more because she is down lower on my torso. If she is sleeping I tie it lower because I tend to carry her higher, if that makes sense? I've found that the carrier provides enough head support because mine is curved up at the top - I think the Baby Hawks are like that too.
