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 three models: Basic Canvas, Luxury Canvas, and Wrap Conversion.
Start with the superior comfort and support of a woven wrap and add the ease of use and convenience of a meti tai, and you get the Wallypop wrap conversion mei tai. It's a treat for you and your baby.
These luxurious mei tais are made from Girasol woven wraps and feature wide, padded waistbands and wide wrap style straps. They may also include pockets, hoods, and toy loops.
The body and waistband of our wrap conversion mei tais include two full layers of canvas for added stability and support. These Mei Tais will comfortably carry children from infancy through preschool.
Wrap Conversion Mei Tai Details:
The Basic Mei Tai 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.
