The Asian Mei Tai is a simple and comfortable sling, designed for carrying newborns. The Mei Tai is a convenient hybrid between a baby wrap or sling and an ergonomic baby carrier. It consists of a rectangular piece of fabric having straps at each corner: two padded shoulder straps, and two straps which together form the waist band. Easy and fun to use, for babies and toddlers. A Mei Tai distributes the baby's weight evenly on the parent's shoulders and hips which makes it easier than carrying a baby in the arms or in a ring sling. It is not difficult to learn different methods of carrying a baby in a Mei Tai and this is the reason why both moms and dads love using them.
