Hmm, that looks nice. I haven't tried the hip carry in my ABC but its my favorite position while using the ring-sling. I'd like to see what others have to say about it.

It looks very interesting! But is the hip carry the only position you can use it in? That is what I love about our pouches is that you can use them in so many positions -- wonder if you could do any sort of back carry with it?

Yeah, I saw it in a thread on TBW where she was asking it was something people would be interested in purchasing. It's really interesting! It looks very comfy, too.

I am always amazed at all the WAHM's who come up with all of these creative ideas and have all of these wonderful products! I wish I had that much creativity!

I have no idea if this can be used for other carries (I would assume not since none are listed) but as a mama to a child who constantly wants to be in arms and usually ends up on my hip I would consider it a worthwhile investment. I do love my pouch for it's simplicity, ease of use and for taking up so little room in the diaper bag, but I think this product looks a little more comfy for hip carries. The seat is padded and appears a little more gentle on babe's legs and of course the rings give a great deal of adjustability whereas with the pouch you only have the shoulder flip option. Also, distributing some weight to the hips would be helpful.

Pamela - I have a "thing" for spelling too! :LOL

That looks so cool! I my kozy, but can't get it comfortably in a hip carry...hmmm...

BTW, I always thought it was spelled "pique" - learn something new every day!

Very interesting! But I wonder why they thread the tail through the rings upside-down?

Hmm, I never noticed the backwards threading...I'm sure it could be done the other way too though right? Maybe just her personal preference?

Yes, I'm sure it could be threaded the way you would normally thread a ring sling. maybe there's a slippage problem the other way?

I think they're threaded the other way because she threads the rings when the baby is in position. I don't have my ring sling handy, or I'd try it, but I think it might be easier to thread backwards when baby is in the carrier. I really think she could be in trouble now that this is posted on MDC. I hope she likes sewing! This could be the hot new thing.

This is on her site re: carrying positions:

"RIght now the Mei HIp is in the testing
stage. When the other experienced
babywearing moms I have testing out the
slings report back to me, they will let me
know their opinions on versatility. When
I first created this, I didn't expect I would
be able to do any other hold other than hip
carry. That is what I really needed in a
carrier. However, I have had my son in the
back carry position in this carrier before
on my farm when I needed him safely
behind me. I will update this more when I
get feedback from my testers."

I would think that you could use this for a back carry in addition to hip carry, sort of like a ring sling, and I would also think you could do a modified tummy-to-tummy in it.

I heard about it on TBW and am pleased to see she's going to market it! It's a really cute idea!! I think it will end up being a popular carrier!
