Okay. Took me quite a while to figure these carriers out and make it look completely fabulous, but I did it!

I now make and sell custom carriers, but I thought I'd show you guys!

Very nice Smiley I love mei-teis. I haven't tried making a buckle one before though, but it's stored away in my mind somewhere...

I love the fabric in most of those carriers! I also like the alteration of a traditional mei tai to use buckles, because I think it then adds appeal for people who have only been exposed to more mainstream baby carriers... And could be their gate way to trying traditional mei tais, wraps, etc! Anything that promotes baby wearing is great in my books!

Babywearing is so beneficial.... I mean, the baby gets that close contact, and that's important for emotional growth, as well as physical comfort... Not to mention, mom builds up strength slowly as her baby grows!!!
