Infantino mei tai reviews

For those who are looking for a carrier that is going to safely and securely hold your baby, but at a price that will fit most budgets, the Sash Mei Tai is the way to go. I was looking for a new sash because my old one just wasn’t cutting it the way I was expecting, and hoping that it would. I was wanting something that would be more comfortable to wear, giving a soft structure while being simple.

When it comes to the design of the Infantino Sash Mei Tai, it is not only lightweight, but it’s got a simple design that will do most of the work for you, placing the baby’s weight on your hips. The design requires the sash to be tied at the shoulders and waist, rather than using clasps. Once I got used to it, putting it on was easy and quick, without buckles, rings or clips to mess with.  Below you’ll find out about my Infantino Sash Mei Tai review.

While it could take a little more practice to get used to a sash carrier, the benefits make it well worth it as it is durable, supportive and soft, oh and it can be tossed in the wash too! The labels provided on the sash help you know which strap goes where. I found this very helpful at first.

When it comes to the safety of your child, nothing is more important. The deep and wide seat offers correct ergonomic support for the baby’s hips, keeping their legs in the ‘frog’ position. After getting it securely tied, maintaining clean airway is easy, while providing adequate support to the baby’s back and head. But, when it come to the back carry position, I wasn’t thrilled at all.

When carrying in the back position, I found the support to be rather insufficient. The sash seemed to be too loose and need to be tighter, but this would cause the baby’s legs to become squeezed with the ties. Also, if the shoulder straps included a chest clip style connection over the sternum, it may have been nice for adding extra security with the back carry position.

When it comes to getting the sash tied, this may be the most difficult part. While some seem to have no issue getting this thing tied, others may struggle. I struggled at first, but was determined to figure it out, but still have times when the world seems against me. When first starting out, I had the feeling I needed to constantly hold my baby with one hand, while trying to tie single handed.

Pros:

  • Soft and comfortable
  • Supportive
  • Front carry position places weight on hips, secures baby and comfortable for both.

Cons:

  • Can be complicated to tie at first
  • Back carry position may feel uncomfortable and/or unsafe

 Overall

I am glad that I invested in the Infantino Sash carrier because it beats my old carrier in comfortability. Although there are a couple downsides, such as the back carry position and no chest buckle, I would recommend this sash for anyone in the market for one who is on a budget.

Organizing a boy diaper bag

I have always heard that the hardest thing to do when it comes to having a child is keeping organized. I learned the hard way that my diaper bag situation was a mess. Everything was just tossed into the larger pocket and I just dug around for what I needed. This caused me to lose items such as my cell phone, keys, and my wallet once or twice. I talked to a friend of mine who is a complete organizing freak and she gave me a few tips and I have found a few of my own for organizing the diaper bag if you have more than one child. These tips work for single children too.

Boy Diaper Bags

If you’re looking for diaper bags for boys you’ve come to the right spot.  We can help you find a baby boy diaper bag to suit your needs.

1.Diaper bags need to have pockets!

I have a Vera Bradley diaper bag and I love it. Plenty of pockets. Use the pockets, which I will cover more below.

2.Have a pocket system down that you don’t change.

This is what catches our mommy eye whenever you decide to start shopping for a diaper bag. Pockets. The more pockets, the better it is. That is great until you become like me and don’t remember what pocket you stuck your little one’s pacifier in and you spend well over 5 minutes searching for it through every single pocket in your diaper bag. Soon, you become the manic mom who just throws everything into the bottom of the bag. I then seen awesome diaper bag organizers that you just sit into the bag and it separates everything that you need.

3.Purchase things that don’t leave the bag.

Before I left the house, I just transferred what I needed from the house into the diaper bag. This was a pretty bad method because I would grab the bag and then just shove a few diapers in it and then leave. I would hardly remember diaper cream, lotions, or even the hand sanitizer. Or I would remember to put them into the bag and leave it at the front door. Now, I have a smarter way to go. I bought travel sized baby items that don’t leave the diaper bag. So, that means that there will be no more forgetting for me.

4.Snacks

I thought I have always been efficient, but let me tell you, I have found teething crackers, half-opened cracker bags and even old banana peels in random pockets, months after they were put there. For my kids, I just always threw in some snacks and off we went. The problem with that is that either I didn’t have enough and no one wanted to share, or I lost them in the bottomless bag. My friend recommended getting pencil pouches and attaching a metal ring to them and then putting the kids’ names on the pouch. I got some puff paint and decorated the pouch and now when I go out, there is enough for both of them and I don’t have to worry about losing the pouches.

This is what works for me. I know that everyone is different, but I found that this makes outings a lot easier and not as chaotic when I am needing someone’s bottle or pacifier.
