    obviously i dont belong in 3rd tri now, but wanted to share with all you mummies to be that i love my mei tai and that you should try carrying your babies, dont waste money on a pram/ buggy, (every baby differs i suppose) but oliver loves being held and i love my mei tai

    Wow! That is expensive.

    I intend getting one of those type of things for when we go out to certain places (my sister had one for hers when they were babies and it was so comfortable), but can't afford to spend that much on one :lol:

    :D i know what you mean about the expense, but i think if it is comfortable it is worth it :)

    i have been saving up for a while for a carrier i actually like and have had a mothercare 3 way carrier which killed my back when oliver was 10lbs ish now he's 23lbs i'm glad i got the mei tai, it definitly has a longer life span in terms of use!!!

    ebay do have some mei tai sort of things on in funky designs too

    I had one of these...

    for Tia... well something similar and I am definitely getting another one this time round... apparently this carrier has been nominated by midwives as the best. I thought they were great and a really easy way to disguise breast feeding in public because you could just put a blanket over your shoulder.

    I think the Mei Tai's are really quite expensive for what they are (I'm definitely a supporter of wearing your baby, so have had a good look around for different options on the market).. I had a similar baby carrier too for Tia but tbh I couldn't get on with it because you would have to start unstrapping it to get the baby into the correct position to breast feed. :think:

    Admittedly I haven't used the exact type of mei tai but there are many other cheaper options available which seem to afford the same basic principles.
