Pros: flexible carrier, puts baby's hips in correct position
Cons: lack of shoulder padding

Prior to having my son, I was not aware about the benefits of babywearing. However, as he grew, I learned about the importance of wearing babies, and how important it is to use a carrier that puts their hips in proper ergonomic position. The BabyHawk mei tai carrier does just this. The carrier is comfortable for babies in a wide range of weights, which makes it adaptable from newborn to toddlerhood.

When I first got this carrier, I was intimidated by the long straps. They are so long, in fact, that they drug the ground when I put on the mei tai. While this was an inconvenience at first, I quickly learned to maneuver them in a fashion that minimizes their exposure to the ground. There is a bit of a learning curve when learning to tie the BabyHawk, but it is not difficult.

I love how versatile the BabyHawk mei tai is. Front, back and hip carries are possible, and there are a variety of ways to tie the carrier in each position. This gives the wearer flexibility and ensures that there is enough support. I started using this when my son was about 15 pounds, and now that he is about 25 I still use it with ease thanks to the flexibility of the carrier.

If I had one complaint it would be that there is very little padding in the shoulder straps. This sometimes causes the mei tai to cut into my shoulders and causes discomfort if tied in the incorrect position.
