Dittany Baby! If you’ve been a reader for a while you already know who Dittany Baby is…one of my favorite companies for trendy baby products! HERE is my interview with Shannon, owner of Dittany Baby, from this summer. You can see my review and pictures of their fabulous pouch sling and skid pants there also.
Shannon was kind enough to send Lil’ B and I one of their Mei Tai style baby carriers for the Eco-Holiday Gift Guide. We received a special Mei Tai in the Stockholm print (see pattern image in pouch sling) and black TODAY and I was so excited I had to share it with you immediately! I have secretly been dying for a Mei Tai carrier since Lil’ B was first born but needs and wants are different when you have 3 pouch slings (2 Hotslings and 1 Dittany Baby sling) and an Ergo.
Now that Lil’ B is nearing the one year mark I fear that my baby wearing days are numbered. We have already begun limiting the use of the pouch slings to short periods of time due to her weight (she’s about 20lbs). I regularly use the Ergo for our extended trips (Disney, airports, etc) so I was excited to compare it with the Mei Tai. I wasn’t disappointed either; I think it might replace our pouch sling for those quick trips and maybe even for slightly longer outings. It feels more secure for the older tot than the pouch slings (especially when yours is as wiggly as mine is). I should really develop a chart that tells you when and at what age I like the different carriers…each age and occasion is slightly different…I’m glad I have a few to choose from. And can you really have too many baby carriers? I think not!
Quality of Dittany Baby Mei Tai: GREAT! I was excited to see the padding along the edges and on the shoulder straps to make this carrier comfortable for baby and wearer. Workmanship on this carrier is excellent.
Price of Dittany Baby Mei Tai: Comparable to other Mei Tai’s on the market at $70-$85 (depending on fabric choice). Cheaper than an Ergo but more pricey than a pouch sling.
Extras: The Dittany Baby Mei Tai comes with a coordinating carrying pouch (all their carriers come with this pouch) which helps keep it organized in your diaper bag or car. The Dittany Baby Mei Tai can also be reversible since both sides are finished the same. This is a great feature for daddy who prefers things a little simplier than I do.
