Meh Dais are a great mid-way between a woven wrap and a more structured baby carrier.
WHAT IS A MEH DAI?
Love the prettiness of woven wraps, but the convenience of a buckled baby carrier? Try a Meh Dai! Meh Dais are tie-on baby carriers, based on traditional south-east Asian style slings. They're shaped like an Ergobaby or other structured baby carriers. But instead of using buckles to clip together the should straps and waistband, you simply tie a double knot in the fabric straps to secure the sling in place.
Meh Dais are very versatile, and highly adjustable for front and back carries and for wearers of different sizes. A you a petite mum and find it hard to get a baby carrier that fits you snugly enough? Or are you a broader parent who finds the straps of your baby carrier dig in or don's sit comfortably on your body? A meh dai could be just what you need.
Many are suitable from small babies up to toddlers, but there is quite a variety of size, style and adjustability between brands.
Some have wide ‘wrap straps’, which feel more like a woven wrap across the shoulders, like the Hoppediz Hop Tye. Others have padded straps similar to a buckled baby carrier, like the wonderful Neobulle Evolu'bulle. Others, like the Soul Meh Dai, have clever hybrid straps that do both.
There's now a range of half buckle baby carriers on the market, too! These best-of-all-worlds carriers feature a padded, supportive, buckle-on waistband with tie-one woven or twill fabric shoulder straps. Our favourites are the Tula Half Buckle Baby Carrier and the Didymos DidyKlick.
Prices range from around £72.95 to £170.
