Meh Dais and Half Buckles blend the flexibility and versatility of woven wraps with the speed and simplicity of structured carriers.
Some people prefer the flexibility of the meh dai to the more structured and fixed shape of full buckle carriers, and with practice, meh dais become very speedy to use. They have a waistband and a panel that smooths up the child’s back, with long wrap style straps. As the straps are wrapped around the body and then knotted, they can be tightened and adjusted to fit around the baby and wearer exactly. This perfect fit can be more of a challenge to achieve with some buckle carriers which are limited by the placement of buckles or the length of webbing.
Meh Dais with adjustable panels can be used from birth to toddler, and used for front, hip and back carries.
Half buckles are meh dais with buckled waistbands, but long shoulder straps for tying in the same way. (The buckle at the waist can be useful if you feel uncertain which knot to untie first to get baby out.) These are popular with people who want the sturdiness of a buckled and padded, yet flexible waistband.
