I often hear, "My mei tai is awesome, but sometimes the straps feel like they are slipping off my shoulders."
So, I put together this photo tutorial with some alternatives to the traditional "backpack style" straps.
1. Cross in front:
2. Chest Belt
3. Tying Tibetan
Take shoulder straps over and around like regular backpack straps, then instead of tying in front, cross one over your chest and thread through the opposite shoulder strap. Repeat on other side. If your shoulder straps are not long enough, you can untie the waist and do this with the waist straps instead. That can be a great option for pregnant mamas to get the straps up away from your tummy.
No matter what tweaks you use, don't give up on your mei tai until you've exhausted all of the possibilities for comfort.
