Marvelous Meh Dais

November 05, 2016

Marvelous Meh Dais

Meh Dais (pronounced May-Die) are amazing carriers that often don't get all the praise that they deserve. Meh dais originate from Asia and are a square panel with straps at all four corners, two for shoulder straps and two for the waist.

Here are some reasons why meh dais are awesome:

  • They fit from birth to toddlerhood.
  • They are completely adjustable to fit a myriad of body types (from small to big).
  • They pack down a lot tinier than a conventional buckle carrier.
  • They can be used for front and back carries.
  • They are supportive for even heavy babies.
  • They are an in between carrier for those who want the closeness of a wrap but the convenience of a buckle carrier.

At Yellow Birch we carry three different meh dai brands: Moa Po, Diva Milano and Babylonia BB Tai.

Here is a break down of all three carriers:
