What is a FreeHand Mei Tai?
The FreeHand is an asian style carrier that has been around for centuries. Versatility is the key. The Mei Tai design consists of a main panel of designer fabric, two long padded shoulder straps and two waist straps.
How does it work?
You simply tie the FreeHand on like an apron, hold your baby on your chest, and pull the carrier snugly up around them, cross the straps behind your back and tie them in front. Please look at the instructions included.
What is the minimum and maximum weight?
The minimum weight is 5 lbs, and the maximum is 35 lbs.
How long are the top straps?
The top straps are 75 inches long and lightly padded. This should be long enough for almost any adult to comfortably use this carrier. One size fits most.
Can I use a FreeHand on my back or hip?
Yes, please see the instructions for instructions on front, hip and back carries.
Is the FreeHand a good choice for a newborn?
Yes, because the FreeHand is very soft and supple, it will cradle your new baby. The lightly padded headrest gently holds their head, while the carrier supports the rest of their body. The FreeHand also helps babies who like to be swaddled, as it hugs them closely to your beating heart, and moves with you for all the sounds and movements they knew in the womb.
How do I wash it?
Wash on cold, and hang to dry to prevent shrinkage.
