    <p>I use a mei tai with wrap straps on a regular basis and LOVE it. I'm curious about the onbu though... Why do you like it? What are the benefits? </p>
  2. Babywearing
    <p>We currently have a babyhawk that is much loved.  Unfortunately, it seems to be getting very small for DD - she is 17 months old, 26 1/2lbs, and 31 1/4" tall.  The MT is my favorite back carry because it's so easy to do myself and because DD can see over my shoulder when I do a high back...

    <p>I am wanting a mei tai and there are so many different brands and sellers. Has anyone bought from Etsy and are they any good  Has anyone ever heard of Twirlybird Baby?  The patterns are very pretty and they are reversible for $70 plus S/H.</p> <p> </p> <p>If not which one would you...

    <p>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...
  5. Babywearing
    <p>I am starting a new job in a baby room (mostly worked with toddlers and older before) and I am looking for a recommendation for hands free wearing. I will be caring for other babies and want to have another (cheap) option for keeping the babies happy!</p>

    <p>My babe is killing my back. I've been a huge fan of my Babyhawk since DD1 was a little one and have been carrying the current DD (9 months) in it since she was just a few days old. However, this one has a really bad habit that her sis didn't when she's on my back: she pulls her arms out of...

    <p>I have a Beco butterfly (the one where the child can't face outward) and would like to expand my carrier collection. I have credit at babiesrus and they sell an infantino Mai Tei. Is it too similar to the Beco to be worth it? My ds is 3 months old and we wear her for most of her naps and...
  8. Babywearing
    <p>I was given my Moby when my son was 3 weeks old and we loved it! Now he's 3 months and much bigger at 15 pounds and we sometimes don't feel comfortable in it now. He's often to low or to high and we struggle to get the right fit sometimes. Also one of his little legs comes out  and gets cold...
  9. Babywearing
    <p>I use the Beco for outings with my 3 week old.  The weather is cold so she is usually bundled up when we use the Beco.  She likes the tummy to tummy position with her legs scrunched up (like she is in a swaddle).  At home when we are inside, I find the Beco to be a bit too much.  I'd love...
  10. Babywearing
    <p>My daughter is 3 weeks old.  We use the Beco Butterfly to carry her outside but she is usually bundled up for the cold weather which she seems to find cozy.  She loves to be held when we are at home, but I could use the free hands to get things done...you know like eating!  :)  I've tried...

    <p>When ods was 1 yr I purchased a Mei Tei from <a href="http://www.mothers-helper.ca" target="_blank">www.mothers-helper.ca</a> b/c I was going camping and wanted to hike with him in a back carry.  That's when it all began.  Yds is only 4 months and I have already purchased 3 more carriers...

    <p>I want to make a mei tai for our currently gestating baby, and bought some gorgeous beigy quilting cottons to make it outta. But I have a few questions:</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p>1. How necessary is a sleeping hood? None of the tutes I've found had a padded strip at the top for the head...
  13. Babywearing
    <p>I just got this mei tai-style carrier, and I like how it is more convenient to get on and off than the industrially-made kind I have with buckles (I think that kind is called a soft structured carrier, but I'm not sure.)  </p> <p>The problem is, it doesn't support baby's head. The carrier I...

    <p>I have an 8 month old. We have been using the babyhawk mei tei in the front carry, in which he faces me. I find it comfortable and safe feeling for us.</p> <p> </p> <p>I think he is ready for back carry sometimes too- or front carry facing out- something in which he can look forward.</p>...

    So, I'm thinking towards the future here, jtlyk<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I have a 20 mos old ds who I didn't carry very much. I have a moby, which I basically only used when he was...

    I have been told that in the Mei Tai when a newborn is tummy to tummy with mama, his bottom should be below his legs. What about his feet? My 4 week old DS seems happiest when I bend his knees so that his knees are higher than his bottom, but his feet are even with, or below his bottom. Is this OK?

    I am sure this question has been addressed many times...I had been using a Mei Tei carrier, but she is now too heavy! If I put her on my back, she keeps trying to swing around to see what I am doing, and I just can't seem to get her securely on my back..She weighs about 23 pounds. What can I...

    Hi! I have been wanting to make a mei tai for some time now. I'm a wrapper but I carry my toddler for every nap and before bed and I am feeling the need for more support than my wrap offers. I love the Scandi tutorial but I would love to see any and all homemade mei tais. What your mei tai is...

    I'm a little late to babywearing - I initially tried it with my son (our first), but had the Ergo which I never loved and the Moby wrap, which took forever to get just right. Fast forward - my son is 20 months and 28 pounds. I recently sold the Ergo and Moby and purchased a Pikkolo for baby #2...
