Toddler Wallabi Meh Dai Sateenkaari Ruutu Navy
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.
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 You might also see this type of carrier referred to as a 'mei tai', however that term is now considered out of date because it is an inaccurate translation.
