Maman Kangourou Inc. Mei Tai baby carrier #Review #Giveaway

Since we know that are expecting another baby and I am planning to do a lot of volunteer work next year, I was searching for a great baby carrier that I can have my baby with me and still be able to do get a job done with my 2 hands. I have been in contacted with Maman Kangourou Inc. I told them about my needs and they certainly recommended me, the Mei Tai or Asiatik.

Mei Tai's conception was created not only with babies comfort in mind, but also mommy’s or daddy’s as they’re on the go tackling the world. It’s support makes carrying around your child a breeze and its versatility allows you to carry in whatever position is best for the activity of your choice.

You might have heard about Mei Tai before but their Mei Tai is different from the traditional Mei Tai’s found on the market. Theirs is the only hybrid between the traditional rigid carrier and the stretchy wrap on the market. You won’t find a more comfortable and secure baby carrier out there. There are 9 different colors for you to choose from.

This Mei Tai can be configured in 3 basic positions : tummy-to-tummy, hip and back carry. It can be worn from birth until approximately 16 kg (35 lbs). That is not bad at all! It is also very safe and allows you to bend and move while keeping baby tucked in. I was just at the baby carrier moms group last week. I learned so much about Mei Tai and I can't wait to try this carrier on my baby. 

Let's take a look at the package together.

 Look at all the benefits of using the carrier. I am totally with this.

A little bit about the company.

Now that we had a look at the package, I wanted to show you when I opened the package.

Look how it's nicely packed in the box.

And this is what it is like when I took it out. The design on the carrier is the one I picked. I love the design and love the color of it.

This is the instruction Manual. Don't forget to read it.

There is a very helpful video for you to learn how to wear it. Just to make sure you get it right. It is very important that you wear it correctly for your baby's safety. 

I was going to try it on with my son and take some pictures but he weight more than 35 lbs now. I did manage to wear it with him so that I know how it feel. It is very nice and very comfy. The material can stretch a little bit. It hold my son tightly. I would think it should be very comfortable to him. This awesome carrier is $100 on the website. You can purchase it directly from the link up above. From my opinion it is a very good investment for us, parents to be able to carry our baby around to keep them feel safe and love. 

I learned that they love to hear our heart beats. This will help babies sleep better and better for their brain development. 

I also have another Mei Tai to giveaway. If you are interested, please enter through the widget below.

Sometimes we questions "why" but we want to remember that everything always led to mighty celebration at the end just like the stories in the Bible.
