I made a wrap to wear Isaiah a while back and he absolutely loves being worn. Wraps are kind of bulky and awkward sometimes, though. A friend on Facebook posted about her wonderful mei tai carrier a while back and I got curious. I didn’t have any money to spend on one at the time, but I got enough for my birthday to order one. It finally came today! It’s a custom mei tai by Strawberry Baby. I chose a beautiful horse print fleece because Isaiah and I both love horses.
I couldn’t wait to try the mei tai, so I put Isaiah in it on my back immediately. It was actually almost supper time, so he only stayed there a few minutes, but he seemed to really like it. He was so much happier than when I use the wrap to put him on my back. He always fights the wrap (only for back carries, though) so much that it’s hard to get it secure. I finally gave up on anything but front carries with it. Now I can wear him both ways so easily! I took a picture with my cell phone in the mirror. It’s not very good, but it’ll do until I can have my mom take a better one.
