They are lightning fast! I ordered it on Thursday, and got it a week later on Saturday! I really wanted it in time for my vacation, now I have it with spare time to practice! I'm too scared to try the back carry without help (dh doesn't know about it yet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">: ), but I put dd (3yrs and 32 lbs) in a back carry, and she LOVED it!!<br>
I got this one:<br><a href="http://babyhawk.com/catalog.php?item=2305&catid=1&ret=catalog.php%3Fcategory%3D1" target="_blank">http://babyhawk.com/catalog.php?item...3Fcategory%3D1</a><br><br>
not that dh will use it, but maybe he'll be OK with me getting another carrier because the pattern is pretty cool!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Emily,<br>
I'm so glad to hear you like your new mei tai. Personally, I couldn't use the BH that I had for comfort reasons (the shoulder style didn't agree with me) but it was a cool looking carrier <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br>
As for the bakc carries, just keep practicing at home when the baby is content. I always recommend laying a fluffy comforter on the floor and then kneeling on it, that way, if anything is off and baby does fall, it isn't very far and it is with a soft landing. If you can, place a mirror nearby so that you are able to see what you are doing. There are differetn ways to get baby on with a back carry, one is to pretie the carrier to you, then put baby on your back, then bring the body of the carrier up so that baby is in postition before tying. Another method is to wrap the baby in the carrier and then place both on your back at the same time, position and then tie.
