Enter the MOMMA IN FLIP FLOPS FREE Dittany Baby Mei Tai Carrier giveaway contest for a chance to win one of Dittany Baby's new Bliss Contoured Mei Tai baby carriers. The fabric patterns and colors are absolutely lovely and those of you who know me are well aware of just how much I love to color coordinate my shoes, purses, diaper bags and baby slings.
When hubby is tagging along, I usually prepare by bringing HIS favorite (manly) baby carrier because he doesn't appreciate the pretty colors and floral patterns of my ring slings and Mei Tai's. But if I had to choose my favorite kind of carrier, slings and Mei Tai's would rate high on the list because they are so convenient and lightweight. They don't take up much room in the diaper bag (or even a handbag) and they are good for breastfeeding. Plus, they are very attractive.
And the prize offered in the Free Dittany Baby Mei Tai Carrier Giveaway contest is REALLY cute. I read the review of the Dittany Baby Mei Tai and the opinion of the authro said that it has nicely padded shoulder straps and if you've ever carried a baby for an entire afternoon..you know this is a big deal. For the most part my baby carrier ratings are based on baby wearing comfort and padding is a large part of a comfortable experience for both mommy and baby.
There should be padding in the sides of the leg openings so that the carrier doesn't chafe and leave marks on the baby. Another thing I look for is the length of the straps. I'm above average in height so short straps don't work for me but the review states that the straps are very long on this mei tai so it would fit most anyone. That being said, if you are petite, you may find the Dittany Mei Tai a bit long and that they may get in the way of your work or activities.
Oh yeah...if you win the free Dittany Baby Mei Tai carrier giveaway, you don't just get the carrier you get a pretty matching carrier for the carrier! LOL
So, rush on over to the blog contest page and get your entry in before the deadline of Wednesday, June 9, 2010!
