Carrier Review: Baby SaBye Mei Tai

Type of Carrier: Baby SaBye Mei Tai

Carrier details: Mei Tai  - reversible blue and red; standard size; handwoven 100% natural cotton; vegetable dye

The back is 14.5 inches (at waist) and 16 inches (at shoulder) wide; 17 inches tall without waist strap.
Each shoulder strap is 9.5 to 10.5 inches wide, and 87 inches long.
Waist strap is 3 inches wide and 69 inches long.

Wrappee:  BabyG (boy)– 10 months – 10kgs/22 lbs

Wrapper:  small – chubby build –US size 10

First glance – Baby Sabye Mei Tai looked thick and a bit rough. This is my first time to try a mei tai and I had some reservations with the straps, the size where Baby G will “sit on”  and if it can withstand Baby G’s weight on the get-go. When I tried tying the waist belt, it was crunchy and I made an effort to tighten the knot to secure it. The straps were thinner than the waist belt which was floppy and flexible. When I wore Baby G, it was an instant hit with us!

This Mei Tai has been with us for about 3 weeks because we had other testers that I had to juggle with and break in. I must say this is my favorite tester carrier so far.

Design – The colors are gender neutral and you can also explore their different colors from Baby SaBye via Etsy. It is ergonomic for Mommy and Baby to be really comfy to wear. It is an organic carrier that is made out of natural 100% cotton and vegetable dyes – environment-friendly.

I also got to have fun and experiment with different finishes.

Instant stow-away: just roll it and tie it up  (and a fancy "heart" finish here as well! check: top photo)

Weather/season – I find the main body to be a little thick but not as enveloped as when wearing a woven wrap. This can be a little warm for humid and tropical seasons especially for a little bit of a stroll outdoors. We were able to stroll around the mall just fine.

Type/s of carry – Front and back carries were done; I would like to rave how I don’t feel a thing with my shoulders. That I got to wore him at home and at different places without feeling diggy at the shoulders. 

Prolonged front carries (more than 1 hour) caused some lower back ache for me probably needed more adjusting for my part. I wore Baby G (front carry) at the mall for about 2 hours and I was able to help my niece shop around for her Christmas party outfit. Then, Baby G was knocked out later that night just right before we left the mall. 

The best carry I experienced was the back carry and I was able to sweep the floor, cook meals and do other chores – perfectly supportive hands-free. 

Unfortunately, I don't have a photo for back carry but check out my video:

Mummy budget – It is just right below the Soft Structured Carriers (SSC) price tag.

Sunny summary –  Where else can you find an Earth-friendly, reversible, supportive carrier that provides lots of tender loving bonding and a sound sleep for your lil bub? Too bad it’s only until 15 kilos for weight limit. I give it 4.8 sprinkles of sleepy dust!
