MamanKangourou Mei Tai Baby Carrier Review + Giveaway

Sharing is caring!

I received the MamanKangourou Mei Tai  Baby Carrier free of charge. All opinions are entirely my own.

 

MamanKangourou Mei Tai Baby Carrier

I love baby wearing. I love that baby wearing allows me to keep my baby close to me while my hands are free to wash dishes, or make dinner, or shop for groceries. Wearing my baby helps me appreciate the long history of women who have worn their babies out of necessity, rather than convenience, so that they could provide for their family’s basic needs.

Given my penchant for baby wearing it logically follows that I have tried a handful of different baby wearing apparatuses. I have tried wrap style baby carriers, and soft structure carriers. Each of these styles has pros and cons. Wraps provide softness and comfort because there are no hard plastic buckles or adjusters. Soft structure carriers have feelings of sturdiness and durability that give me added confidence while carrying my babe.

And then there came MamanKangourou. The Mei Tai is a wrap and soft structure carrier melded perfectly together. The wearer has the secure feeling of structure in the pouch and the comfort of a wrap around their shoulders and waist.

Initially the instructions are a bit tricky to follow. (Although that could be because the first time I read them it was midnight and the only sustenance I had had all day was coffee and string cheese.) But the more I practiced the origami-like carrying positions they became easier. And after practicing together my husband feels confident using this carrier too. Youtube tutorials really helped us understand how to tie the wrap.

There are three carrying options: Front (tummy to tummy), Side, and Back. Each option is basically the same which is nice because you don’t have to memorize anything or be a contortionist to tie this carrier on yourself.

Now, I’m not a small gal. I typically wear L-XL shirts. MamanKangourou recommends that anyone wearing a size XL or more order the larger sized carriers that they have labeled as “plus”. I thought I could squeeze by since I can easily use other one-size wrap style carriers but I know now how serious they are about needing a larger size. The carrier is almost too small to properly tie on both my husband and me. So, if you are on the fence about what size to get, I would advise you to size up.

Features of the MamanKangourou Mei Tai that I love:

  • The pocket on the front of the pouch. It’s the perfect size for a phone, a small wallet, or a snack.dsc_0710
  • When carrying baby the wrap always crosses between baby’s legs and helps me to feel secure in the knowledge that my baby won’t slip out.dsc_0722
  • The wrap straps are soft and slightly stretchy but not overly stretchy like some wrap style carriers I have used.
  • The packaging made from recycled materials. Thank you, MamanKangourou for caring about our planet!

  • 3 carrying positions help make sure your baby is always comfortable.
  • The brand name MamanKangourou pays tribute to the importance of Kangaroo Care and the carriers truly facilitate it.

I would definitely recommend the MamanKangourou Mei Tai to parents looking for the perfect hybrid between wrap and soft-structure baby carriers. You can purchase one for you and your little one directly from MamanKangourou here.
