The Wallypop Mei Tai (sometimes also called an Asian Baby Carrier, ABC, Mei Tie, or MT), is ideal for you and your baby, from birth through toddlerhood. It is a fairly simple baby carrier with several carrying positions possible.

Our Mei Tai comes in two models: Basic and Luxury.

The Basic MT is a great entry-level carrier. Sturdy, fashionable, and comfortable.



The Wallypop Luxury Mei Tai builds on the comfort and features of the Basic Mei Tai, and features lightly padded top straps, storage pockets, fabric loops, and a sleeping hood. The pocket can be used to carry a diaper, your billfold, or your sunglasses, while the fabric loops are perfect for hooking your keys onto, or a toy to keep your little one occupied.

Our Mei Tais come in just one size, and will comfortably and safely carry babies from birth through toddlerhood. You don't need to "size up" as your child grows. The pictures above feature my various children from ages 5 months through 3 years old. (I also recently wore my almost 6 year old on my back in our mei tai!)

The straps on both models are long enough to accommodate most body types and sizes, without being too long for smaller frames. Women over size 18, men who are tall or over size XL, and anyone who is concerned about fit should please email us. Generally speaking, these carriers will fit these sizes just fine, but there is such a variation in body shapes, we're happy to double-check that the straps will be suitable or work with you to create a carrier that will fit, and there's never an extra charge for making longer straps. 

Fewer seams = More safety We make our Mei Tais using one solid piece of fabric on each side, with the seams around the edges. We believe that fewer seams means more safety for your precious cargo. Carriers sewn with pieced fabric carry the risk of those seams pulling apart, potentially harming the integrity of your carrier. The bodies of these carriers are under quite a bit of stress and strain while they're holding your baby, and extra seams are not a risk we're willing to take with your children - that's why we here at Wallypop have designed our carriers for the utmost in safety.

Please use common sense when using Wallypop slings and carriers. Keep a hand on your baby when bending, stooping, walking through a crowded area, etc. You can expect years of service from your Wallypop products, but take care to look over your slings and carriers before each use. Do not use your sling or carrier if the stitching has ripped or the straps are getting worn out. Limited wearing instructions are available here. Wallypop cannot be responsible for misuse, breeches of common sense, or any injuries that may result from the use of our slings.
