I got one mainly for my dh to use. Our little guy (well, by little I mean young because he's only 3 mos old but over 17 pounds!) doesn't really fit in it right now (although I haven't tried in a few weeks I should try again) so dh has been using the mei tai and loves it! I never thought he'd be able to tie the straps by himself, but he can. I think it's about the cutest thing ever when a dad wears his baby!
