I am always looking for something different to review. When I found the Babyhawk Oh Mei carrier, I knew I had to try it!! The Oh Mei is like the best of both worlds: a soft structured carrier and a Mai Tei. The bottom part of it is a buckle and you wrap the top like a Mei Tai. I won’t lie, I was nervous at first because I had never used a Mei Tai carrier. I had only worn Bai in a soft structured carrier or a wrap. I came to find out that it was easier that I had thought and started to wonder why I waited this long! This is now, officially, my go-to carrier.
When I say it’s my go-to carrier, I mean this thing gets A LOT of use. When we run errands, it’s in my car. When we’re home, it’s on my dining room table. Bai brings it to me and tells me she wants “uppy” or “wrapped” and it has become her go-to carrier as well. When I say it’s in my car… it’s there with me and goes in the store with me. I always ask Bai if she wants to go in the cart or if she wants wrapped. Usually she wants wrapped.
The Oh Mei came with tons of sleepy dust! Bai can comfortably fall asleep and stay asleep in this carrier. I like that its so easy for her to nap while we’re out and about. I can not tell you how many trips we’ve had to take during nap time. I have also successfully taken her out of the carrier and transferred her to the car seat without waking her up. I have no clue how I did it, but it really did happen!! As a matter of fact, I’ve been able to do some awesome stuff with this carrier. I was able to use the Spray Pal while baby wearing very easily. And I was able to tandem carry with the Boba during a stressful evening babysitting!
This is the carrier that I highly recommend to friends and family. I love that even though Bai is almost 2, it still fits her knee to knee. Not many other standard carriers do!! The Oh Mei is just wonderful! It’s comfortable for me, comfortable for her, and convenient to put on. I can not say enough great things about it! They retail for between $115 and $120. You can also have yours custom made with your own fabric or a variety of fabrics that are readily available. If you want yours right away, there are a few that are ready to ship. 🙂
Please Note: I received this carrier for the purpose of this Babyhawk Oh Mei Review. No other compensation was made. All opinions are my own and 100% honest!!
