FreeHand Mei Tai ... what will you do with your Free Hands?
The FreeHand Mei Tai is comfort and fashion all-in-one. A Mei Tai Baby Carrier (pronounced "may tie" and also referred to as an Asian Baby Carrier) is one of the most comfortable baby carriers available. The softest and most compact of the Mei Tai baby carriers we carry, the FreeHand mei tai is LOVED by parents with a newborn. The slightly smaller body won't swallow your infant, and the head support is perfectly padded and not too overwhelming for a new little one.

A mei tai is a one-size fits most baby carrier with the ability for unlimited options of positioning for carrying your baby, all based on how the straps are tied to your body. We LOVE the lightweight nature of the FreeHand baby carrier, and the way it just seems to "hug" a little newborn baby. The fabric is so soft and scrumptious - you won't be disappointed!
Sizing Guidelines for the FreeHand Mei Tai
FreeHand Mei Tai baby carriers are a one-size fits most carrier. The soft headrest is ideal for an infant that requires extra head support, as well as for an older baby that likes to fall asleep inside the baby carrier. A Mei Tai can do it all! This is an ideal carrier as you can use this baby carrier with a newborn or toddler. A newborn or young baby without complete neck control will have ample head support, while an older baby can easily see out over the top of the carrier and even has his hands free, if they prefer. Just turn up the bottom strap for a baby that wants to see out and about.

Great newborn/beginner Mei Tai Review by Lorraine
Quality Price Value
This mei tai was recommended to me for a newborn on thebabywearer and I am so happy I purchased it. My daughter was colicky and hated slings - being upright in a mei tai was a much better option for her. I loved the feeling of having her so close to me. After she was about 6 months old and got heavier, though, I preferred using the Ergo and other soft structured carriers. So easy to use even my husband and my parents were game (although the men used the reverse side and not the patterned one ;)) (Posted on 7/1/10)Would you recommend this product to a friend?

Love my Freehand! Review by CINDY

I bought a Freehand Mei Tai for my latest baby, born this past summer. It has been an awesome carrier to allow me to have hands free for my 2 year old. I use it to go on longer walks and especially the grocery store. While it is not the easiest to nurse in, especially while out, I just nurse before I go and bring a pacifier to tide him over a few minutes in a pinch. It is a beautiful, well made carrier, and has fit my boy right from birth. He's 20 lbs now and it is still very comfortable and looks like new despite much use!

A must for all Moms! Review by Casey
Quality Price Value
I absolutely LOVE this carrier. It is by far my favourite and most used baby accessory. It's convenient and comfortable to wear. It's easy to tie and can be switched between wearers without any buckles to worry about. It grows with your baby - just tie and go, no adjustments needed. I hate taking a lot of gear so it's a major bonus that the Mei Tei folds up into a neat little bundle and fits in my bag.Would you recommend this product to a friend? Without hesitation!
One of the best things is that you can do just about anything while holding your baby. Having your hands free is a great convenience and time saver.
Both my husband and I used it to carry baby on the front, back and hip. I used it right from when my little one was a newborn to just over a year. I would still be using it if my little one didn't want to walk all the time. (Posted on 7/8/10)
