As promised, my review of the Moa Po Meh Dai, for moms who are wondering if they should buy it because there aren’t that many reviews out there (at least not in english as they are based in Montreal). I’m not sponsored by anyone, I just want to spread the word when I come across a great product that I like. I’m also going to apologize for my lack of photos because I’m not great at them.
In my last blog, a month ago, I was super excited that my meh dai arrived. First off, I’m just glad that this is a Canadian company and everything is made in Canada, specially Montreal. Their website is in french, but you can click on the En at the top right corner to switch it to english. http://www.moapo.ca
They ship Canada wide, wrapped in craft paper, in a simple recycable box and when you pull it out, it’s folded beautifully, which I have not been able to do again because now the fabric is used and not flat. It also comes with a DVD that shows you how to wear your baby in multiple ways.
I love that they use modern fabric, which suits my style more. They change up their fabric all the time too so you can always get unique looks. The fabric they use is 100% organic cotton and the dyes are environmentally friendly. You can read all about it on their site.
Its super light weight because it’s just fabric, which is the major reason why I bought a meh dai, for travelling. But I find this is my go to carrier even though I have a structured carrier as well. The straps that go over your shoulder are wider and slightly padded for more comfort. The straps that tie around your wait are shorter than the top two straps for wearing purposes.
So far I’ve only worn my 5 month old baby in the front because I’m usually by myself and don’t have anyone to help me wear her on my back yet. I’ve worn my daughter for 2 hours in this and it’s still comfortable, as long as I tie her properly. She also loves sleeping in it.
The meh dai also has a head support flap that you can easy use to support the little ones head once they fall asleep. It’s much easier to use than the snaps on another carrier that I own.
Even though this carrier isn’t structured, I feel well supported and because you cross the straps behind your back, the weight is evenly distributed and my baby is secure in the pocket.
For those who are wondering if they should get it, I give it two thumbs up 🙂
