We are really excited to be releasing our Uppywear Wrap Conversion Mei Tai.
Of course we’ll have full instructions and videos to accompany our new carriers but sometimes its nice to have a little reminder of the details that will really help you get the most comfortable fit while you are babywearing.
So here’s your hot mei-tai tip of the day! How to properly tighten and get a perfect knot!
Pull waistband of the carrier flat against your body.
Begin by tying a half knot.
Find the outside edge of each tail and pull in opposite directions.
Next switch to the other rail and again pull in opposing directions. You should feel the knot tighten significantly each time!
Finish tying your knot.
Tightening the waistband knot in this way will really help to pull the top of the waist band tightly against your body and give you extra support for your lower back while you are babywearing. It will also keep the knot from loosening up as you wear.
If you are wearing an Uppywear WCMT on your front you should take time to tighten the knot with this same technique. (But behind your back for extra fun!)
We are really looking forward to getting our Uppywear Wrap Conversion Mei Teis out into the world and carrying babies in the next couple of weeks.
We will have a very limited number of Uppywear WCMTs available for pre order in the Uppymama shop on Wednesday. Sign up for the Uppymama Members Only Email here.
