Is that the infantino? Looks like it over the real Mei Tai. The infantino you put the straps through the little loops on the side. She looks nice and comfy though! And super cute.

She should be sitting above your waistband, like her butt should be sitting at the top of the waistband rather than over it. Back carries are awesome, it gets comfier and easier as they get older too and the weight is more spread out Vs sack of potato infant lol. Happy bw :)

If its the infantino she's sitting in it right that's how the waist looks front and back carry.

lol It was a bit tricky but I did it over my bed so if she were to fall she would be fine. I find it pretty comfy but I don't like not being able to really see her, I'm gonna try to get her higher next time so I can see her better over my shoulder

Then the only issue I see is that the shoulder straps should go through the little loops on the side. I used it for a back carry for the first time Sat and my biggest complaint was it was super hard to get the shoulder straps tight enough :( but DD is 2 so I don't worry as much.

So the fabric panel to sit on comes out of/is attached to the bottom of the waistband rather than the top? I've had all sorts over the years (teaching other mamas to BW and my own) but i've not come across this before. I preferred an SSC or woven wrap as sitting up high is a lot more supportive.

TRU says the panel is only 12x10, how/why would you use that with your 2 yr old?! is she tiny or does TRU have the wrong details?

She's only 20 lbs lol



It's better made then I thought it would be. I foun mine at a local baby store for $12 and it was surprisingly comproable to the Mei Tai only not as nice fabric and wasn't as wide.

Also I bought it for my 2 month old but the 2 year old was begging for it so I figured it was worth a try to back carry.

She is little! but it's the width that matters, that is what supports them, it should be knee to knee with them slightly higher then their bum, so that their spine and hips are properly supported rather than hanging.
