The term mei-tai refers to a type of Asian-based carrier. Pronounced may tie, its meaning in Chinese (Cantonese) is Mei : carried on the shoulders and Tai : carrying strap. Its simplicity is what makes it so popular. There are many variations in existence, and the basic common element is a waist-belt and shoulder straps attached to a central panel where baby is seated. The carrier adapts to a wide range of body types.

The Chimparoo Mei Tai has a number of unique characteristics: soft woven cotton twill, system of lateral adjustments for a newborn, seat adjustments to accommodate a baby younger than 2-3 months of age, a sleep hood, and padding in the waist, shoulder straps and under the thighs. All these elements make an ideal carrier for the newborn. The carrier is certified for use with a child weighing 7-35 lbs, and thus can be used for as long as you feel comfortable. Your child can be worn in 4 positions: on the front facing in, on the front facing out, on the hip and on the back.

The Chimparoo Mei Tai is often considered a hybrid, the compromise between a woven wrap and a soft structured carrier such as the TREK or MULTI 2.0. Made for both men and women, with a look that is both urban and natural. It owes its cozy feel, comfort and support to the same supple, lightweight cotton twill found in our woven wraps. Lightweight and simple to use, it is compact and easy to master. You will find it indispensable, both inside and outside the home. The long shoulder straps will accommodate most body types and allow the carrier to be worn outside your coat.

4 of 5 Chimparoo Mei Tai October 27, 2015
Reviewer: Marika Tang from Markham, ON Canada  
This was my first time trying a carrier that did not involve buckles.  It takes a bit of practice but overall I am pleased with this carrier!

5 of 5 learning curve, but worth it May 18, 2015
Reviewer: petra from Montréal, QC Canada  
I love how soft this was straight out of the box. Unfortunately the instructions leave a little to be desired and my six month old daughter does not like being a guinea pig, but we're learning. I'm excited to have her forward facing, something we can't do with the boba carrier! Also, it's great that she can do a back carry. I've accomplished so much around the house and my back hurts a lot less!
