Our View


Why we love it: We love this meh dai for its beautifully soft wrap material and its super adjustable width and length. It's comfortable and suits many sizes of baby. It is light weight and compact.
Wallabi Meh Dai combines all the good qualities of a woven baby wrap and a meh dai. The baby wrap fabric is soft and airy. The wide wrap like shoulder straps will distribute the weight evenly over the shoulders and the upper body which makes the carrying feel light as a feather. You can wear your baby from a new born to toddler and you may use the wrap both in a front carry and back carry.
Wallabi Meh Dais are carefully handmade in Finland. Wallabies are made only of Girasol's baby wrap fabric and some padding is added for comfort. The body part is made of double layer of fabric. Two darts at the lower part of the carrier body create a pouch for baby's bottom and she will easily take the ergonomic frog-leg position. We have added soft padding under the baby's legs.

The shoulder straps are not padded and about 30 cm wide. The straps have some extra length and after the first wash they will become about 200 cm long. The shoulder straps are folded in a beautiful fan style, which will spread the fabric evenly and comfortably over the shoulders. The waist strap is softly padded and about 200 cm long.
The Wallabi Wrap Tai comes with a cute sleep hood. The hood supports your baby's head while sleeping and it will also give some privacy for the little one, if she feels overwhelmed in a busy place.
This carrier is based on an East Asian traditional baby carrier which is still in use today.  Meh dai (Cantonese) or bei dai (Mandarin) are rectangles of fabric with straps at the top and bottom. Meh dai means “back carrying strap" where “meh/bei” means “carry on your back,” and “dai” means strap.  You might also see this type of carrier referred to as a 'mei tai', however that term is now considered out of date because it is an inaccurate translation.
You might also see this brand of carrier referred to as a 'WrapTai', however that term is now considered by many to be inappropriate because the abbreviation does not preserve the cultural origins of the carrier
