Catbird Baby Mei Tai Carrier Review

One of the few baby carrier styles I had not been fortunate enough to try yet, but had always wanted to, was a mei tai. So when Catbird Baby sent me one of their mei tai carriers to review, I was excited!

Zoë, my 4-year old, took this picture. Pretty impressive, huh? My Nikon D90 is not a light camera, so I think she did a great job – my little photographer in training.

One of the things I love most about mei tai carriers is the simplicity of the design. There are no buckles or snaps to worry about. Just one beautiful piece of fabric. I typically go for very simple patterns, but I love the carrier that Catbird Baby sent me. It’s unique and fun, but not too bold.

I like the nice, wide straps, which provide good support.

And there is a simple hood that can be easily tucked inside the carrier. It doesn’t work well for Kaylee since she’s taller, but it would be great for an infant.

I have tried a few of the different positions included in the instructions, and I like the back carry, by far, the best with this carrier. I like that it can be used for inward or outward facing in the front carry position. Kaylee didn’t feel comfortable facing out, but I know a lot of babies and toddlers enjoy being worn that way. It can also be used in the hip carry position. We’ve tried that, but haven’t perfected it yet. But the back carry is great!

There is also a unique elastic adjustment loop that enables you to decrease the width of the carrier as much or as little as you want to get the perfect fit for your baby’s legs each and every time. I thought that was a neat feature since the mei tai carrier can be used with babies and toddlers weighing 8 to 40 pounds.

Another thing I love about Catbird Baby is that their carriers are made in the USA and they’re designed by a mom (Founder Beth Leistensnider). If you’re as curious about the name Catbrid Baby as I was, it comes from the expression “sitting in the catbird seat,” which means to be in an advantageous position (from the short story The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, by James Thurber). Beth thought it was the ideal description for a baby who gets to see the world while snuggled close to Mom or Dad. Sweet!

Overall, I think the Catbird Baby Mei Tai Carrier is a great option for parents who want a simple, comfortable carrier that’s available in fun patterns. I will probably use mine mostly for shopping trips where I need to keep Kaylee comfortably out of trouble or for when we’re enjoying time with family and friends and Kaylee wants to stick close by my side.

I’ve been curious to try one of these, too. We typically use a soft structured carrier with buckles, but this does look comfortable and it’s nice to have so many options for how to carry your child.

Cute pattern! I borrowed a friend’s mei tei for a family camping trip. Loved that it was soft & packed well with the camping gear, and was easy to wash when we got home. We hiked some trails in it – got a little hot, but it was July in the midwest, so can’t really blame the carrier for that one. :)

I LOVE the wide straps!!! That makes so much difference when babywearing. This looks like a great carrier.

Being able to adjust the width seems like a really handy thing to have as the baby grows. Thanks for the review and giveaway.

I love my mei tai! This one is a different brand and the print is so pretty! I would love to have a second mei tai so I have one to wash and one to wear.

One thing I really like about this carrier is that you can use it to carry baby on your back. I would love to try this one. My Bjorn is only a front carrier. I really love that there are no buckles or snaps to deal with. Looks like a great carrier!

I would like to try one as I have an ergo that I love. However, it has buckles and I would be curious to try one that did not.

I also really want to try a MeiTai after everything I’ve heard about them. They seem close to my beloved wraps, but slightly easier for a newbie to put on.

This is cute, and looks very comfortable! And easy! I loved using a wrap for my son, but now as we prepare to (hopefully) have a second child, I can see something that requires less work being better for us! And this definitely seems like a great option!

Gorgeous colours and pattern on the one shown. Love how versatile it is, which makes it a thrifty choice for the newborn stage right through to toddler-hood. Also like how ergonomic it clearly is which is REALLY needed with wearing a toddler.

I use a Mei Tai in conjunction with a handmade soft-structured carrier in order to tandem wear my twins. It’s a perfect combo. The SSC goes on my back and provides a little more support and weight distribution for my heavier twin and the Mei Tai goes in the front. Because its just a simple piece of fabric with ties I don’t have to worry about two sets of buckles running into each other like it would if I wore two SSCs. I love the versatility of Mei Tais!

The adjustable width feature sounds nice. I usually use a soft structure carrier and when DS was very small I felt like his legs had to be spread open more than he was comfortable with.
