Thanks to the padded shoulder straps the Mei Tai is easy to tie. Thus, it is the perfect combination of baby sling and backpack carrier doing completely without a rack or a buckle. It has all advantages of a baby sling but is as quickly and easily to put on as a backpack carrier! As both the shoulder and the waist straps are tied, the Mei Tai can be adjusted individually. Mei Tai is made of 100 % cotton. The straps and the headrest are padded on the most important parts to ensure utmost comfort.
