These include Mei Tai, Podaegi, Soft Structured Carriers/Buckle Carriers and many others. They usually consist of a rectangular centrepiece with 2 or 4 straps.
Mei Tai (MT)
Originally from China, these have four straps to tie on. They are easy to use, versatile & adjustable, so will work for both parents.
We currently have the following:
- Napsack Baby Mei tai in Red and brown
- Mayawrap Mayatie in rainbow, size large
- Freehand mei tai in green with natural straps
- Babyhawk mei tai in bird print with black straps
- Little River Mei Tai with cream straps
these slings originate from Korea and consist of a rectangular piece with one set of long straps at the top. There are two types of podaegi: the traditional wide blanket with horizontal straps and the more common narrow blanket, with a more mei tai like rectangle and angled straps. We have two narrow blanket pods
- Dreampod in red and flower print
Soft Structured Carriers (SSC)/Buckle Carriers
these are based on the mei tai but have buckle fastenings instead of ties, they most closely resemble rucksacks/backpacks and are the most modern looking of slings.
We currently have the following SSC:
- Connecta Original
- Connecta Integra
- Manduca with integral infant seat
- Boba 3G
- Ergo with additional Infant insert
- Active Mom Carrier in black & lime
- Nova Baby Carrier
We also have a Scootababy one shouldered buckle carrier.
