Mei Tai sling/baby carrier

Anyone use one of these? I really like the one by Freehand. It looks easy to use and comfortable. My mom sews, do you think this could easily be made?
Thanks for all the input!

Freehand Mei Tai

I've never used one, but I'm sure it could be made. It looks like it ties on. I am pretty sure you could find a pattern for a mei tai on the internet.

These are very common in Asian cultures, and my mom used them with all of us (my brother and I were born in China, and my youngest brother was born here in the U.S.). My mom made all hers by hand. It essentially looks like a big square with straps coming out of all four corners of the square. I was 11 when my baby brother was born and was able to carry him around in it. It gets kinda heavy after a while, and the straps will dig into your chest/waist if you don't tie it correctly.

I think I'm going to find a pattern and pick out some fabric and have my mom sew one for me. They are kinda expensive (cheapest I found is $78) so it would be a lot cheaper to make my own. Plus then I could pick out my own fabric! Kinda excited to try this!

Thanks for the info Anna!

I've heard soooooo many good things. I just bought a Beco so we'll see how I do with that before expanding my baby carrier collection
