What is a Mei Tai Baby Carrier?
A Mei Tai (originally called Meh Dai) is a baby carrier consisting of a back panel made from fabric in which the baby is positioned and long shoulder straps to knot. The hipbelt is either made from strap belts to knot or can be closed with a buckle (in this case the baby carrier is also called "Halfbuckle").
In relation to a woven wrap a Mei Tai is really easy to knot and therefore is a baby carrier for babywearing beginners. It's particularly popular for carrying newborn babies.
What are the Advantages of a Halfbuckle Mei Tai?
The hipbelt of a halfbuckle Mei Tai is closed my means of buckles. As a result the hip belt can be put on more quickly and it is also very easy to tighten or loosen. The MyTai from Buzzidil is a halfbuckle Mei Tai.
The half-buckle carrier has one big advantage: when breastfeeding in the carrier, the buckles of the hip belt can be loosened slightly to lower the baby to chest level. This means that the baby carrier does not have to be undone.
How does a Mei Tai work?
Your baby is newborn or younger than 6 months: Put the waist belt around your waist. Is your baby bigger already, you can close the belt around your hips. Let the back panel hang down centered, in your front. Lift your baby up in front of your tummy and make sure to hold your little one centered in your front. Pull up the panel of the Mei Tai baby carrier over your baby's back. Put the shoulder straps on your shoulders. Grab both shoulder belts in your back in one hand and pull them down to tighten the carrier. You can then use your second hand, too. Grab the shoulder belts in your back and cross them behind your back. Keep the tension and bring the shoulder belts forward under your baby's legs. Knot the belts right under your baby's bottom. Here is also a video tutorial how to front carry with a Mei Tai.

What makes Buzzidil MyTai so special?
The Buzzidil MyTai is a simple entry-level baby carrier for parents that is even forgiving when it comes to tying mistakes. Why? Because everyday life with a baby is often stressful enough. Especially when your baby fusses tying often doesn't work 100%. No problem with the MyTai!
If you notice that you didn't tighten the straps properly this time, the MyTai has a unique solution: small buckles on the shoulder straps make it easy to retighten shoulder belts without undoing them. This is also great if you carry it under a jacket in spring, autumn or winter. Simply tighten the buckles and the carrier sits perfectly!
