If you don’t know this already, I am a huge fan of babywearing. With baby wearing, I was able to bring my babe to work with me for 6 months and also maintain my sanity at home when I needed to get stuff done. I am on the path to get certified as a baby wearing educator and was looking to try out different carriers. I was really excited when I found out about the Soul Sling Meh Dai because even though its a soft structured carrier, it has these amazing hybrid wrap straps which allowed me to try out different finishes and practice before I started learning woven wraps. I reached out to Soul Slings and they were gracious enough to let me host a carrier for 2 weeks. We had blast using it and took the carrier on lots of walks, errands and just around the house to test it out.
The carrier is made of linen and is super breathable and great feeling. I was able to carry my 21 lbs, 11 month old with ease and wiggle around for a few nursing sessions and naps.I will say that the head rest ties are hard finagle when baby falls asleep on you but we figured it out and I loved the overall feel and look of the carrier.
I was excited to work with Soul Slings because it was started by a fellow cloth diapering, attachment parenting, baby wearing family of color in India. I love working with fellow POC all day everyday!
The hybrid wrap straps on the carrier were padded and super comfortable and stayed comfortable on my 3 mile lake walks.
It’s also daddy dancing baby wearing approved .
Thank you to Soul Slings for letting me try out this gorgeous carrier.
