The Mei Tai is the optimal carrying aid for long distances – from birth and also for older children. As flexible and comfortable as a sling, but as comfortable as a stretcher.
Bridge reduction (integrated as standard with size 1)
The height and width of the backrest can be adjusted by reducing the web.
Neck reduction (integrated as standard with size 1)
for more stability in the neck area
Hip belt with buckle
This can absorb more weight in older children and is often a good option if the weight of the baby carrier has already been found to be too heavy.

with a larger child and the headrest as an extended back section

How tightly must the stretcher be tied?
As tight as possible. And if you bend down, the child should not move more than 2 cm away from its own body.
How can I tell if the bridge fits?
If it extends from the back of the knee to the back of the knee or stops at no more than the middle of the thigh. If the bridge alone has become too small, the straps can be fanned out above the legs – see instructions for older children.
Which size is the right one?
We always go according to the height of the child.
Size 1 fits from birth up to about 95 cm height (fanned out) and size 2 from 75/80 cm height.
Arms in or arms out?
The child decides this as soon as it can hold its head alone and is stable enough in the upper back.
