Using a Mei Tai sling is fantastic as you can carry your baby on your front or back. The sling is brown with a cute and colourful polka dot pattern, but can be reversed into plain black.
The hood is connected with 4 poppers which are on the outside of the sling and therefore are not in contact with your baby, making the sling perfectly safe. There is also a very handy pocket for added convenience.
The Mei Tai is incredibly easy to put on and take off, and full instructions on how to tie it in three positions, “Front”, “Back”, and “Hip” will be sent with your sling. You can also watch our instructional videos below which show you how to tie and wear your new Mei Tai sling.

my favouriteMei Tai With Hood And Pocket - Blue & White FloralReviewed by Bohokelly on 30 Jul 2021
After trying a number of different carriers this one is my favourite. Very easy to put on especially when my baby is upset and needs a quick carry. Extremely comfortable and distributes the weight of the baby so not to put too much pressure on the back. Product quality is outstanding and lovely choice of designs
Lovely baby carrierMei Tai With Hood And Pocket - Black FloralReviewed by Emmawitham on 27 Apr 2021
My order arrived super quickly like other purchases that I have made from this shop. It came well packaged and with helpful instructions.The fabric is nice and it feels well made.I find it really easy to use and my 7 month old and my back feel well supported. I carry my baby a lot during the day and I love walking and haven't had any aches or pains when using this carrier. I love the handy zip pocket and the hood as well. It's a great price too,I would recommend.

Great carrierMei Tai With Hood And Pocket - Purple PaisleyReviewed by Lisa on 06 Jun 2018
This Mei Tei carrier is one of the best carriers Ive owned. I have tried many and this is the one Ive fallen in love with and now use on a daily basis. The reason I only gave 4 stars is because I feel that it doesnt quite offer enough support to my babies head and neck. If she falls asleep, her head just sort of flops back and Im sure this must be a strain on her neck. Other than that this is comfortable and easy to use and I would recommend to anyone!
Great once baby supports head!!Mei Tai With Hood & Pocket - Black With Small Polka DotsReviewed by Christie on 11 Jan 2018
Amazing sling but head support not really suitable for small babies. If you use hand to help support head can be used but we be awesome for older babies! Can't wait to use it when babe is a bit bigger!

I bought this carrier for my daughter to use with my five month old Grandaughter. She worries about the fit as she is on the larger side but this proved to be no problem...very generous fit for mum. The quality is great and the fabric very soft. The pocked and removable hood fantastic idea with the British weather. Very pleased with this purchase and can see it being used for many months.

This product is really great quality, easy to use with easy to follow instructions. All for a great price. There was a mix up with my order, for some reason received a confirmation but no PayPal confirmation. Emailed a few days on when realised there was a problem and as I needed the sling for my holiday. Got great customer service and sling arrived the following day, plenty of time before my trip. Thanks daisy baby
BrilliantMei Tai With Hood and Pocket - Blue PaisleyReviewed by Anonymous on 24 Mar 2016
I was looking for a light weight comfortable carrier for around the house. This is perfect!! It's light weight easy to use and comfortable. My baby is 8 weeks, it supports him nicely. I have a stronger carrier for outdoors and for longer periods. I can see myself using this carrier for a long time as it will support a babies weight for a lot longer than a stretchy wrap or sling. Brilliant price, super fast delivery.

Very fast despatch of my item. Have not used yet but it's very good quality, nicely padded so it looks like it will be very comfortable when little one goes in it. Little hood for rainy or sunny days, handy little pocket on front for keys, phone etc. Very pleased with it.

easy to use, good value for money, and nice quality. I was hiring a sling with clips but this is probably better, can tie it as tight as i want to. just wish i had bought it earlier. if i had one moan - the fabric lengths to tie the sling on are extremely long.

I bought this sling as I wanted something easier to put on than my wrap, and also didn't want to spend out on an expensive buckle carrier. It's incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. My 4 month old has been very happy in it also! Delivery was quick and the sling is well made.

Mei Tai sling with hoodMei Tai With Hood & Pocket - Grey White DesignReviewed by Ibs on 25 Oct 2015
Unfortunately I just could not get the hang of this sling. I previously had another that was just like a long piece of material that you had to wrap round your body. It was just too much of a faf and i had to to return that. I thought the mei tai would be an easier option but i just could not get it to sit comfortably on my body. My baby also didn't seem to like it. I had high hopes for this but unfortunately I will have to return it. I don't think it's a bad product but just not suited to my body shape or something.
Baby carrying heaven!Pink Spots Mei Tai Baby Sling With Hood and PocketReviewed by Anonymous on 19 Oct 2015
Absolutely love our new baby sling! I wanted one with a hood for the school run as carrying an umbrella just isn't easy with everything else going on. This works perfectly! It's so comfy and easy to put on alone. I love the fact my baby stays where she's supposed to and it doesn't slip down like some other slings we have. The price is fantastic especially compared to a lot of other slings we looked out. Definitely 10/10 for us and couldn't recommend enough. The quality of the fabric is great too padded in all the right areas and love all the different designs to pick from! Thanks Daisy Baby Shop for making our life's a whole lot easier and in style and comfort too!
Great sling at a great priceMei Tai Baby Sling with Hood & Pocket - Blue with White SpotsReviewed by Jill on 10 Sep 2015
I bought this sling to use with my 4 month old baby and I love it. I have used several slings and found this to be comparable in comfort to the much more expensive buckle slings. My baby loves it and easily falls asleep in it. The pocket at the front is extremely useful for keys, muslins etc. I wanted something I could use to go out walking with and have been able to wear it for 3miles no problem, though there is a bit of a knack in getting it tight enough to get the right support.

I wasn't intending on using this sling to also breastfeed with but somehow I managed it because I really wanted some dinner and needed free hands! It's a great sling, good looking, soft and comfortable with nothing to did into our little one. I love the hood, great for sunny and rainy days. It's extremely well priced, I've already recommended it to all my Nct friends.

Good carrier for toddler!Mei Tai Baby Sling With Hood & Pocket - Bright Multi SpotsReviewed by Anonymous on 05 Jul 2015
Bought this carrier to carry my 20 month old on my back instead of always needing to use my structured back pack carrier. So far have used it to carry him on my front (asleep and awake) and on my hip. Managed to get him it myself. Very supportive even with a toddler wriggling in it - will need a little practice to get it tighter but was safe and secure first time. Instructions very clear!

I actually changed my order to a blue with white spots and it's a really nice pattern. I'm really pleased with the whole thing. Im still getting used to the tying and I prefer it if I have a hand free to support baby but it's really not necessary I dont think and Im sure in time, I will feel more confident about the whole thing. I am a bit new to the whole sling thing!
Mei Tai with hood & pocketMei Tai With Hood & Pocket - Black With Small Polka DotsReviewed by John Thompson (London) on 13 Apr 2015
I've dry tested only, as baby not arrived yet, first time to use this style, as last baby i had the normal style carrier you see in shops, and can say, firstly the quality of the Mei Tai is very good, it is a fraction of the price I paid for the other style shop ones, so happy about that, and will last for a very long time, and it feels very comfortable. I can see why abroad these are so popular with woman and folds up well too and from a dad perspective i actually prefer to carry around my baby like this then struggle with prams in & out of shops catching hanging garments as you try to navigate your way through a shop that does not allow enough space for prams! So simple to put on once you've done it a couple of times, so would recommend, i'll try to let you know after I've road tested it with the baby for a couple of months, my partner is also impressed thankfully as it was my choice to go with this style as I will be the donkey that carries the baby most days we go out, hope this helps if you are sitting on the fence, I say yes I recommend

I am very happy with the Mei Tai it arrived very quicky and is really good quality. It hasnt took me long to get used to putting it on and off the instructions that came with it were very clear. If i was to be picky it could do with a bag to store it in as it becomes very messy with the long straps trying to fold it neat is a nightmare but that is me finding something to improve it.
Finally found a carrier that is light, easy to wear and that my baby loves!Mei Tai With Hood & Pocket - Black With Small Polka DotsReviewed by SarahG on 19 Feb 2015
I ordered this carrier after trying numerous others (moby, ring sling, pouch sling), none of which my baby would settle in or I felt comfortable wearing. The babybjorn we have is great but a bit bulky for around the house and hard to get on and off whilst also holding baby when alone! This mei tai is fantastic. It is so easy to put on (no help needed at all) and my baby immediately settles in both the front and side carry positions (I have not tried back carrier yet). It is very comfortable to wear, packs away small to fit in the changing bag and the hood and pocket are brilliant additions for when out and about. It looks great too. I could not be happier with this product. It is everything I hoped for and delivered super quick even though we live outside the UK. Thank you Daisy Baby!

I liked the fact I could choose from several different designs and the hood will give extra protection against the weather. My baby falls asleep easily in the sling and it's comfy to wear. I'm very pleased with it, wish I knew about it from the beginning. The deliery of it was very quick and I was kept well informed.

Because I ordered this over the Christmas holiday I expected a bit of a delay, but it was dispatched immediately! The Mei Tai is very well made. We bought it to use on our second baby which hasn't arrived yet so we tried it out on our 3.5 year old (33lbs)! Amazingly it worked brilliantly with him and he felt light and comfortable in both front and rear carry, it even fitted comfortably around a 9 month baby bump! Even grandma who didn't think she'd be able to carry a big preschooler found she could comfortably carry him in both rear and front carry with this sling. Much easier to use than I thought too. All three carries are very easy to get the hang of. We are very much looking forward to using this sling on our new arrival. Thank you Daisy Baby.
