Meh Dai (Mei Tai)
Meh Dais are a traditional Chinese baby carrier; in its simplest form, a meh dai is a rectangular cloth body with straps coming off of each corner. Modern manufacturers have each developed their own take on this traditional design, so there is a wide variety of offerings.
Meh Dais are most easily used for front and back carries although they can be used for hip carries as well. Back carries can be done at varying heights (younger babies need a high back carry). They are easily transferred between wearers and provide a “custom” fit as they are tied onto the wearer. Meh Dais are a good middle ground for someone who likes the custom fit of tying that a wrap offers but wants the speed and ease of a soft structured carrier
