I honestly think an ERGO would be better than a Mei Tai (especially for a heavier baby) but that's just my opinion. We have a mei tai and while it is great, I can't stand the tying, especially when we're out. The ERGO is fast, easy and very comfortable. It really comes down to personal preference.

I have both, and I would definately say go for a Mei Tei. They are available with padded straps if you need them for a heavier baby, and also with buckles, so you eliminate tying. I just think the fabric seat is much more comfortable for baby than the Ergo seat. Not to mention the great assortment of colors and designs! Plus, you can get a Mei Tei for about half the price, depending on the style you choose. Seriously, my lightly padded Mei Tei is much more comfortable for me and my toddler than my ergo. And it's just as easy to get on and off. And I get alot of comments on it, because it doesn't look so mainstream. HTH
