The Didymos Meh-Dai (also known as a Mei Tai and DidyTai) is an easy to use baby carrier. It is made from a rectangular piece of DIDYMOS baby wrap cloth with four straps sewn to its corners. It has no buckles, snap or Velcro fasteners – thus nothing that could wear out, hurt or wake up your baby when opened. The top straps are wide and gathered where sewn to the DidyTai body panel. The Didytai wraps tightly around the wearer’s shoulders distributing the baby’s weight very evenly. The bottom straps tie the DidyTai together and provide additional support. The optimal and ergonomic position for the baby to be in is the spread-squat-position to guarantee a healthy development of the hip joints. The DidyTai gives optimal support for this spread-squat position. The Didytai has a drawstring to adjust the width and thus will suit your child from birth until he/she wants to walk on her/his own. It is strongly recommended to only use the front carry until baby has developed core, neck and head control. The DidyTai is perfect also for a back and hip carry once baby is able to transition to these positions.
The Didytai also has a sleep hood which is wonderful feature for when baby falls asleep or for added protection from the weather elements. The Didytai is a wonderful option for people that like the idea of a soft structured carrier (a.k.a. back pack carrier) but love the feel of a wrap as the soft body forms to baby’s shape and most people can achieve and higher and tighter position. It is not as versatile as a wrap but is fairly simple and easy to use with the benefits of the adjustability and moldability of a wrap without all the stiff buckles and padding of a soft structured carrier!
