We’ve just added a Lenny Lamb toddler mei tai to the library, so Lucas and I tried it out for a walk. He was in it for about 30-40 mins. He started off nice and high but as you can see, he slipped down quite a bit! Next time I’ll tie it tighter and possibly roll the body up a bit as it’s quite long.
Thoughts so far: it’s lovely and soft, with a lightly padded waistband. It isn’t *that* wide, which isn’t really a problem with a MT as you cross the straps at the child’s kneepits. I’ve found that with other off-the-shelf toddler MTs anyway so wasn’t surprised, plus there are no seat darts so you need to really make sure to get a niiiiiice deep seat before tying the straps.
It was pretty comfy, with a bit of digging on my shoulders, which should be improved by tying higher and more tightly. I like the softness and Lucas was very comfy in it, and he even managed to wriggle his arms out of it. I was able to put the sleep hood up by myself as it started raining quite heavily (note: sleep hoods are not intended to protect against rain, but I had gone out without an umbrella!) and Lucas seemed happy with the hood – a good test as he isn’t normally! I found it comfier than the library’s ToddlerHawk because of the softness, but not quite as supportive, as it’s flimsier.
