Re: Talk to me about mei tai's and wearing your baby!
Mei Tais are definately easier on the back, since the weight's over both shoulders. I would DEFINATELY get padded shoulders. At first I really didn't think it was that big of a deal, but I changed my mind! lol
They may look intimidating, but they're really pretty darned easy to use. And whatever kind you get, don't just stick w/ the ties in the wearing instructions. Play around. I've discovering different tying methods change the weight distribution of the baby pretty significantly.
