Re: Mei Tei's..

I'm so glad I've inspired some MT sewing! Woo hoo!

Here are some that I've done...

for me-- athletic mesh for the pool

for a friend-- off white twill with light weight cotton panels

for a friend-- black twill with home dec fabric panel

for me-- home dec fabric body, white twill straps (made small for a younger baby)

for me-- home dec fabric

for me-- green twill body, recycled quilt top for panel, khaki poplin straps

oh, the fun you can have with a sewing machine!

Re: Mei Tei's..

In a MT can a 3mo. old (14wks today!!) sit in the front in a forward facing position if she still has a little bobble head action going on? My DD loves facing outward, will the MT support her head or does she need to be facing me until she can completly hold her head up on her own?

Re: Mei Tei's..

I've only tried a kozy and a BH, and I LOVE my BH the best. I have an XT, and DD likes to ride on my back when she is awake. Sleeping, better on the front...

You can do the facing out postion with a MTB (www.MeiTaiBaby.com) that has the adjustablity feature. I have a zippy (you can change the deco panel) that has it but I dont do facing out ever. It isnt comfortable at all IMO. The wieght if spread totally differenty on you body and then the baby is much heavier IMO. I also wouldnt recomend doing if the baby cant hold its head up properly.
