Pros of Meh Dai

One of the major pros of a meh dai baby sling is its versatility – it can be used for both front and back carrying. Another meh dai benefit is that it is not too complicated to figure it out. It is a small learning curve to master this carrier.

Another pro is that you can use it through toddler age. This is a much longer time frame than most carriers on the market. Of course, it is worth mentioning that you will be able to nurse your baby hands-free as well.

If you suffer from back issues, the meh dai will distribute the baby’s weight over your entire upper body, making it a great option for moms with back pain.


If you are planning on wearing baby all day, this might not be the best carrier to use because it is not comfortable for long periods of time. Sometimes the straps can dig into your shoulders as well if they are not padded.

For moms that prefer to hip carry their baby, then this is not the easiest option there are easier hip carriers out in the market. If you have a hard time tying and untying knots then a meh dai might not be for you.

The meh dai is not ideal for rainy days either. It is difficult to keep the straps from getting wet and uncomfortable. You can learn more about other alternatives to compare your options.

Where Does the Meh Dai Come From?

Originally this baby carrier came from Asia. It is popular in China and Asia because the baby is seated in the body panel and the straps are tied around the person wearing the baby. The Meh Dai will feel in between a structured baby carrier and a flimsy wrap carrier.
