Kol Kol Meh Dai


Product Description

Kol Kol Meh Dai ergonomic baby carriers are East Asian-inspired, soft-bodied carriers. These carriers have a contoured cotton or linen body panel, generous waist straps, and hybrid padded shoulder straps that open out into full wrap width. This means you get the even weight distribution of a wrap shoulder with the comfort of a padded shoulder!

These lightweight carriers are made out of natural fibers, making them great for use in all climates, including hot weather.  They can be used in front, hip and back carries as well as front facing forward carries.

We love the Kol Kol Meh Dai because:

  • they have a minimalist, natural feel that is great for people who don’t love bulk or buckles
  • they can be adjusted down for use with an infant and up for use with bigger kids
  • the hood supports your child’s head but also looks pretty hanging loose
  • the wide shoulder straps can be spread  out to mimic the feeling of a wrap on your shoulders
  • they do a fantastic high back carry to allow your little one to peek over your shoulder
  • they come in two sizes so they are a great fit for most babywearers
  • they are a great value

Meh Dai have previously been called Mei Tais in the US.

Care of your Kol Kol Meh Dai:

We recommend spot cleaning your Kol Kol Meh Dai (and any baby carrier) when practical.  When you do wash your meh dai carrier, hand wash separately in cold water and  do not soak for long times. Do not wring. Hang dry in the shade.

    I was sold on this carrier as soon as I heard that there are 2 strap sizes! This option means the world to babywearers with smaller or larger body types. Many Meh Dais I have tried only have one size option leaving tall/ curvy mamas with ou...t enough strap and petite wearers with too much. Problem solved! The straps are wrap strap style which means that they spread out over your shoulder eliminating the diggy feel. I also love the secure feeling that this Meh Dai gives me. I get such good snuggles in this carrier. Kol Kol got the adjustability factor right on with this one. The bottom of the panel adjusts easily with velcro, while the top of the panel does the same with a drawstring. It is super easy to use and accommodates for babies of many sizes. My average size 2 year old fits nicely in this with the panel fully extended. The woven cotton is also nice for all seasons.
