Using mei tai on the go

I just got my Babyhawk this week and I love it so far (and so does baby). But am I missing some trick for folding it nicely for the diaper bag, or putting it on in public without the straps going all over the floor?

You can pretie it and have it on and then just loosen the shoulder straps to put baby in- personally I let my straps drag...

Re: Using mei tai on the go

For not getting the straps all over you can either let the top straps hang into the car or stuff the ends in your pockets so they're not on the ground. Both of those work for front and back carries.

As for folding it up here's two tutorials for folding it up nice and small.

I put the top straps in the car while I'm putting my Mei Tai on. If I'm not by my car or anything I then let them hang.
