History of the Meh Dai

The traditional Meh Tai / Mah Dai baby carrier designs follow two Hanfu design principles (traditional outfits worn for thousands of years in China): the use of squares and the use of straps. This carrier has been used for generations and has important cultural significance in China.

Our most anticipated carrier is finally here!

We are incredibly excited to bring a meh dai baby carrier as a new selection for our customers. The versaility of this style baby carrier combined with its ability to be used with kids up to 45 pounds, makes it our most versatile carrier.

Some of our meh dai features include:

  • A ring sling waist
  • Gathered fabric shoulders
  • Two inclusive lengths
  • An attached hood with magnetic snaps

All of these features together with our signature hemp blend fabric create a carrier than you can use from the infant stage all the way through toddlerhood (and even beyond)!

This is the most supportive, comfortable carrier for my toddler.He loves it as much as I do! I was particularly impressed that there is an option for a long length for those of us in larger bodies. Once again, I am even more satisfiedwith this product than I thought I would be, as I have been with all of my H&P purchases!

First of all, this carrier is just so beautiful! Second, it’s perfect for carrying my 20+ pound almost 1 year old who likes to try to escape the sling now. I was so sad to think our baby wearing journey was over but this changes things.Such a great purchase, I’m really happy I decided to go for it!

When I saw H&P was coming out with a meh dai, I contemplated whether or not to get it because I have so many different kinds of carriers. But I am so so glad I did. The carrier is absolutely beautiful and so comfortable.My babe was super happy to be in it as well. My favorite part of the carrier is that the buttons for the hood are magnetic. It makes it super easy to use!
