ByKay Mei Tai - Review!

ByKay is a lovely mum of four, Kay Poelen, who is sending some very cool carriers out into the world. Her denim range is the bomb for mums who want to keep it simple and dads who want their carrier to blend in. She sent me a sample of her wares (oh yes, this means a giveaway for you lovely folk!) and I'm really impressed.

Personally I feel the only acceptable time to wear "double denim" is when your carrier is the second piece. The stonewash blue is clean and simple, the dark denim really sleek and sharp. They're fully reversible and look good either way. OH, and they're actually 48% linen, 52% cotton, so VERY supportive and summer-friendly.

Being a wrapper, I'm a fan of the wrap straps. I don't like drowning in padding or bulk and I really appreciated being able to  spread the straps easily and achieve fantastic support. The denim is substantial enough to wrap very smoothly and moulds very well. I liked the lightly padded waist - 12 cms wide, it didn't bunch or dig and I think the shorter waist sash (2m end to end) is a clean option for people who don't like excess dangling. The body of the carrier is quite tall (40 cms), and I can see that carrying a child (like a 3-4yo) is absolutely a practical option, especially using the wrap straps to widen the seat. 



Conversely, the clever design of the seat (oh hai buttons!) makes this an ideal carrier for small babies- not only can you roll or apron the carrier to shorten the body, but you can tailor the width of the seat by buttoning back the leg padding (28 cms to 45cms) - smart. 

The seat darts run nice and deep to help you get that good M-position seat every time.




The fuss-free sleep hood sits smoothly over the body of the carrier and can be anchored with loops situated behind the shoulder straps- more nice, minimalist design. I love this carrier because I can see it getting everyone wearing. It is as easy to care for as your jeans, it blends in and doesn't take great skill to wear comfortably, it has a long span of usefulness with your child (rated to 18kgs)... Win.  

As you can see from the dark denim pics, we took this baby on a lengthy hike (about 90 minutes) and not a thing shifted. Completely comfortable with 11kilos of toddler and bread for the ducks... In a FRONT carry. I'm sold. And  I'm really interested in trying out a ByKay denim WRAP, too! 
Oh, nearly forgot -  you can win one- right here:  YES! I want to enter this worldwide giveaway!




Just because we like the personal touch and spreading a bit of good karma, your light blue denim carrier is coming to you from Mornington Peninsula Babywearers - my local group of awesome people who like to wear their babies ;) This giveaway is open WORLDWIDE, so share some love and make sure you're in!

  3. My favourite is my Ellevill trigreen linen. I love the colours. Its also light and cool for summer and so easy to wrap with.

    ReplyDelete
  4. My favorite carrier is probably my wcmt, but I very much miss my woven wrap.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I'm trying to get a collection before bubs arrives. So far I have a ring sling, an ergo and a woven wrap. The only one I've actually used was the woven wrap (roses), with DD for about half an hour. She's very light, but at almost 8yrs old she's a bit too lanky to wrap comfortably, as she's only about a foot shorter than me!

    ReplyDelete
  6. the whole family loves the wovens :) cant complain about a good SSC either ;)

  7. Love everything :) from gypsy price whitford at Facebook

  8. I love wraps! They tend to provide the most support.

    ReplyDelete
  9. So far I have not been able to afford a good carrier but working soon on trying a few. I definitely want a woven, kinderpack, and mei tai.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Mei tai has been my fave so far. Not much luck with my ring sling and too afraid to try a real wrap!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I have tried a sleepy wrap, ergo, mei tai, and a woven wrap. So far my favorite is my woven wrap (for my 3mo) I love the Mei Tai for my two year old.

    ReplyDelete
  12. My favorite is my mei tai right now. Its just more comfortable than my ring sling and I can keep her on my back

    ReplyDelete
  13. I am loving my MT but dd is growing again...

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love Mei Tai's, best of both worlds!

    ReplyDelete
  15. It's a close race, but I do believe that a good mei tai is my favorite carrier! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love my beco butterfly 2 right now! I need something more summer friendly and more fitted to me though. This looks perfect!

  18. I've only used a hybrid stretchy wrap so far, and loved it for my little, but now he's not so little i'd love to try something new that would support him well like a Mei Tai or a really gorgeous Woven :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've tried a stretchy wrap, and I have a smith firm wrap, but I'd love a mei tai, and I'm hoping to get a nice new carrier before the new squish comes in October

    ReplyDelete
  20. Up until now, I love my woven wraps.
    Never had a mei tai before, so I'm very curious what it's like!
    I've heard, and read good things about it.
    Really do love the look of the entire bykay denim collection.
    Looks great on you, wonder what it'll look like on me, lol!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love my ring sling but my little snug a bug is getting big for it to be comfortable for long periods.

    ReplyDelete
  22. woven wraps, (but thats all I've tried.

    ReplyDelete
  23. With my eldest, it was a stretchy and then a ring sling as she got older. With our little bundle, we've tried them all! I love the support of a woven, the flexibility and softness of a stretchy and the convenience of a ring sling. I'm looking forward to trying a mei tai when she's a little older.
    It's hard to choose a favourite, but as we mostly carry her on the school run, I'd say a ring sling as it's so quick and easy to use. I just came across a ByKay denim ring sling here in the UK but they were sold out - I'd love to try one of these instead.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've only ever tried a DIY Moby and an Ergo. I love both for different reasons. I'd like to try a woven or a carrier without buckles though.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love my woven wrap but my go to for my lo is my wcmt made especially for my little man, but with another one on the way, it is always good to add another.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love the ease of SSC, but I recently tried my friend's mei tai and really liked it! I would love to win this so I can have one of my own.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I currently have an oscha (my first ever wrap) I always thought it would be difficult to wrap until I stumbled upon ur page on facebook. I love my oscha wrap but would love to try something new & exciting for my 4 month old

    ReplyDelete
  28. So far my favourite type of carrier has been the standard woven wrap, specifically in a linen blend and size 7. However, I'm super excited to hear about this denim carrier being a linen blend! If we don't win this give-away, we'll probably buy one :-D

    2. I LOVE the adjustable features of this mei tai! I tandem wear my twins and appreciate a wide variety of options, but my boys, who are only 50th% for height, outgrew our mei tai by the time they were ten months old. They still nap when I wear them and the lack of head support on that mei tai caused us to retire it. This mei tai would solve that problem! A hood and adjustable seat! I think I'm in love!

  29. Hey,
    I`ve never tried a MT but I`d love to :)
    Now we´re using a Slling and the Emaibaby, which is tooo small for my husband (ust like the bondolino) so a MT could be the solution...

    ReplyDelete
  30. My fav carrier right now is my size 6 Uppymama cotton wrap followed closely by my Uppymama ring sling <3

    ReplyDelete
  41. For the longest time I thought my favourite carrier was simply my wrap but now I have a wcfb and it's love. I do love the mei Tais I have tried though- seems like the best part of both- easy seat but lovely. & wrappable

    ReplyDelete
  42. My go to carrier lately is my ring sling, so easy!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm so new to all of this baby carrying, used an ergocarrier until now. Ordered a woven wrap just this week, very exited! Really want this stonewash color to match my favorite pair of jeans. I am saving money for it, but winning would be so cool!!

  44. We're just learning to wrap, and we love our Ergo Xtra (the first carrier we used, from birth) but we keep going back to our ring slings, particularly our new Little Frog Agat in Love merino blend - so soft and cushy!! We'd love to try a mei tai too. Big fans of denim ;)

    ReplyDelete
  48. I can't pick a favourite, I love all the carriers :D at the moment though we are digging the mei tai :) I love how it can grow with your baby thanks to rolling/bunching material in the beginning for little ones :) x

    ReplyDelete

I hope I win because she and I both love for her to be carried and she's going to start getting to big for it. She's only 25lbs so this would be awesome! If I don't win ill be checking out her page come tax time :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I am a newbie to baby wearing and am currently borrowing a Manduca from one of the leaders my local group, Gippsland Baby Wearers. We are overseas and it has been immensely helpful with our airport ventures! I highly recommend the Manduca, but this Mei Tai has caught my attention!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  63. I'm a wrap girl so far, but I've yet to try a Mei Tai :) - Chantelle Ogilvie-Ellis (forgive the pseudonym above - have had trouble changing it!)

    ReplyDelete
  64. In all honesty I cannot give a best carrier favorite carrier as my bubs hated her ergo so I habent had the money to replace it. Ive been looking into meitai's and would love to try one as at three months old weighing seven kilo I think my back could use the help and support of a softer carrier. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I loved the Moby for newborn , but now I'm kinda digging the mei tei!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I really like the mei tia!! I have always adored baby carrying and those that do. I did carry my daughter for awhile but she outgrew the carrier/sling and I didn't buy a bigger one for lack of funds. This me around my babe is fifteen months I have attempted to home make a carrier with little success :( but I would love to have a comfortable carrier to tote him he loves being held but my arms gets so tired and switching from hip to hip.

    ReplyDelete
  67. My favorite carrier has always been a ring sling. Quick and easy!

    ReplyDelete
  68. We have an Ergo, which we love but I'm hanging to try some other carriers. The Mei Tai looks fantastic so comfy ♡

    ReplyDelete
  69. I love wrapping my little girl atm, hubby uses mei tei. I wear my older boy in a ssc though :)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'm extremely new to babywearing, but I really love the stretchy wrap that I made for my baby!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hard to choose, but my SSC gets the most use

    ReplyDelete
  72. We both use the Ergo and I also use an African torso doekie. Love them! But I would love to try a Mei Tai :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. My favourite is a SSC for quick uppies. But for superb snugness and pretties too I love my wraps ♥ this looks like best of both worlds

    ReplyDelete
  74. I'm torn between my wcmt and my wcrs as to which is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  75. All I have so far is a stretchy wrap, but I love it! I've got a cotton gauze wrap on the way for summer now and I plan to make myself a water slight. I'm really interested in getting a carrier like this one though because my husband needs something that he's comfortable wearing and the denim is a perfect option for him!

    ReplyDelete
  76. We don't have any carriers but think this one would be a great one to start with!!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. My stretchy was my fav when baby was small. Now we love our ssc, but I would to to love a mei tai :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. We have a Moby that I dislike... Way too much fabric! I have 2 different SSCs - I prefer the back carrier. I just got a RS and think I will REALLY like using it. Guess we'll see in August. :)

  89. Am very new, so only have a ring sling, but I love it

    ReplyDelete
  90. What we have here in our country (Philippines) is a SPOC type called Saya. Been using it since my baby SKy was just 2weeks old. Now at 10mos still happily "hugging" my son everywhere we go. Would really want to have a taste of imported baby carrier like that of ByKay mei tei, it looks really comfy and with our weather here perfect that its summer-friendly. Hope I would win one.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Love my Diva Milano wrap. It's thin, airy and surprisingly strong.
    Since a few week i also started using a ringsling an though it wasn't love at first sight, it's starting too bloom.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I mainly use a ssc and ringsling but think a MT is probably the most comfortable. Just need to get the hang of using one :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. LOVE Mei Tai's great for my slimmer frame, and easy for dad to use too - his fav carrier by far.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I've only tried MobyWrap and Baby Bjorn (gasp, I know, it's evil... insert skull and crossbones here... I didn't know it at the time. :-/

    ReplyDelete
  95. Right now my favorite is an imitation Ergo. I really like my Infantino Mei Tai but when I tried the "ergo" My dd fell in love with it. I REALLY want to get a woven wrap eventually.

    ReplyDelete
  96. It depends what I'm doing. Mei Tai for around the house for sure and my ring sling for out and about.

    ReplyDelete
  97. My favourite newborn carrier is a Sleepy Wrap then an Ergo for my 2 year old

    ReplyDelete
  98. We only have experience with an Infantino carrier.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I've only tried a woven with my wee dot

    ReplyDelete
  100. My fave is woven wraps and soft structured carrier like kp but yet to try a mei tai

    ReplyDelete
  101. I love a mei tai for quick carries and a woven for longer walks. However hubby will only use a mei tai

    ReplyDelete
  102. Ssc for kanga and daddy wearing. Rs for quick trips but loving woven for extended carry time

    ReplyDelete
  103. Love my K'tan for my preemie babies; use a simple kanga cloth for around the house, and really want to try out a mei tai for my new walker who always wants to get up and down! This is Abena, I don't know how to change the name.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I love my Vatanai woven wrap for wearing my 7mo around the house for naps and just general closeness. When I go out though, I love my Storchenweige ring sling for the ease of just wearing it while I'm driving and quickly putting bub in with no trouble. I also used an ergo carrier while I was out with my oldest daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I have only used a ring sling but am interested in trying other carriers with future kids.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I love my woven wrap. I use an ergo for quick carries, but it's well-loved and not as sturdy as I would like.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I love my girasol woven wrap, but have never tried a mei tai or ring sling so I couldn't comment on whether I'd prefer those. Would love to try them though!

  111. Right now I have a didymos wrap from my local baby wearing group lending library. I just joined last month. I've only used this wrap, an ergo, a ktan, and a Moby. I like my ergo and the didymos wrap. So I think I'd love a Mei Tei since it's a mix between the two I love. Thanks for the chance to win this!!

    ReplyDelete
  112. I currently don't own any carriers. So my favorite would have to be any that would keep my baby happy and us both cool....

    ReplyDelete
  113. thus far for simplicity and versatility my favorite is my mei tai-however i haven't dipped my toe into wraps.............yet ;)

    ReplyDelete
  114. My daughter has colic and we are currently trying out different carriers to see what works best for us. I want to try a woven wrap, but currently the MT a friend lent us is working out really well.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I love my woven wraps and used to have a regular mei tai. I can't wait to try one with wrap straps!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I love all of my carriers. My wovens are great for cool weather when we go on walks or I'll be wearing for a while. Love my tula for grocery shopping or long trips when I need to get her up and down fast. But right now my Pavo Etini RS is my go to. It's my first pavo and I'm obsessed. Also I love the ease of a ring sling. I will soon be in the market for my first WCMT. I don't have any MT experience but am soooo intrigued. So winning this would satisfy my curiosity. :)

    ReplyDelete
  117. Right now my SSC action baby carrier is just because it is easiest. Would love to try a woven wrap or ring sling, but can't afford anymore carriers.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I absolutely love my toddler tula for my 2 year old and my 2 month old only loves the wrap so far, i have a babyhawk meitai that she likes too but it doesnt look nearly as comfortable as that!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Based on this review, I think this is a fantastic option for me. Id be immensely happy to win this. :D

    ReplyDelete
  120. I love my ergo and my wraps. Would love to try a mei tai!!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I'm currently pregnant with our first baby, so don't have a favourite yet, but I'm planning to try a few different carriers, and see what baby likes best when she's here!

    ReplyDelete
  122. We love our Ergobaby but would also love to try a Mei Tai!

    ReplyDelete
  123. for each occasion I use a different carrier. Short walks ssc, long walks wrap, hospital visits ringsling.

    ReplyDelete
  124. so I'm new to the world of baby wearing, and I have to say that I really enjoy it. Considering that I've had a reconstruction on my spinal cord it's very hard for me to find a comfortable baby carrier. I have ring slings, wraps, Moby wraps, Ergo, and I keep using the Ergo because it's fast & somewhat comfortable. I've joined a baby wearing group & I'm so excited! They even have a library of great carriers so I know I'll find something. I'd love to try a Mei Tai like this one! It looks so easy & comfortable for you & baby.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Whit baby number 2 on the way this would be an awesome thing to win :) I would use it to have my hands free and my baby close to me

    ReplyDelete
  126. I first wore an elastic wrap but that did not feel comfortable for me. Right know i use an woven Amazonas wrap and the classic Ergobaby with my 6 month old babyboy an we both love both. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  127. My go to is my maya tie - mei tai with wrap straps in a pretty blue green colourway. It's getting a bit diggy to carry my 3yo though!

    ReplyDelete
  128. These are such pretty carriers. I really like the MT for its ease of use and lower learning curve! And they're a fun option for tandem wearing. But I confess, I'm a wrapper. My go to is my size 2 because I hate having too much fabric and since I'm small it makes a great all-around shorty.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I love my.Ergo but I've been wanting to try a mei tai for a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I love mei tais. They are my favorite then ring slings.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Right now ring sling is my fav. Im new to wrapping so its all i have. Cant waiy to try more :)

    ReplyDelete
  132. This looks so lovely and comfortable. So far I've only tried a wrap, so that would be my favorite but I've been really wanting a mei tai with wrap straps. I wear my daughter at least 3 hours a day if not more. She has hip dysplasia and has to wear a brace 18/24hrs and she's often pretty angry about it, so babywearing has been such a life saver for us. <3

    ReplyDelete
  133. I'm not a very experienced carrier, but i own something similar to the moby wrap and my husband has a baby ergo. It's hard to find things to fit me and I am still learned the different techniques of wrapping.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I'm mostly into SSCs these days as my toddler isn't into being wrapped, but I've also never tried a MT so that may be my fave if I win one :)

    ReplyDelete
  135. I only have a Moby wrap. I adore it but I want to branch out and try new carriers. I would love to win this!

    ReplyDelete
  136. I tend to avoid RSs (still can't figure them out) but I love my BabyHawk, Boba, and woven! Can't forget my Ergo...

    Pick one?!?!? Probably my mei tai for now ;)

    ReplyDelete
  137. I love my woven wraps, mei tais, buckles and ring slings. They ALL have their place in my stash (and life.)

    ReplyDelete
  138. With baby getting too big for the ergo I would love to win this! I don't have a favorite, though, all my carriers have their own use.

  140. Right now I am just making my way around to all different types of carriers. Stretchies, pouches, wraps, mei tais, SSCs. I love wraps and SSCs, and have a HB on the way :)

    ReplyDelete
  141. I have used slings and ssc, and prefer ssc. They feel safer lol. I really want to try woven wraps and mei tais though.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I prefer SSCs but my husband's hands down favorite are mei tais.
    & my daughter likes slings (for her babies).

    ReplyDelete
  143. I'm a wrapper at heart - so woven wraps win all the way!!!

    ReplyDelete
  144. My favorite wrap is my Lenny Lamb bamboo/cotton blend woven wrap. I only know and.do.one back carry & am.not very versed in the.lingo or variations yet, but I hope to be! I have an almost 7 year old, a 5 year old, a 3.5 year old and a 20 month old, and I like wearing anyone who needs to be worn. :)

    ReplyDelete
  145. My favourite wrap is a woven Ellevill, but unfortunately its too warm for the summer, so we use a didymos ringsling for now. :)

  146. I love my rs but find he's getting too heavy for me in it now. Enjoying the abc buckle I've borrowed from green bean sling library :)

  147. My favourite with DS1 was mei tais - so comfortable & versatile. http://mummyversion0point1.wordpress.com/2012/09/07/mei-tai-the-babywearing-bomb/. Just had DS2 & some of my MTs are too big to use with him but the Freehand is perfect.

  149. I used to be a ring sling/moby person but my son is getting 5 big for them. Tried my friend mei tai and looooved it!

  150. I am a woven wrap person, however, I cannot afford a good one so I have had to DIY all of the ones I have. I would love to try a MT if I can ever afford one.

  151. Ring Slings were my favorite for the newborn to about 6 months stage. But now I'm loving my Mei Tai and thinking I need a few more to leave in the car/truck). :-)

  152. I've actually never tried a Mei Tai and I'm not sure I can pick one wrap type. I love love love woven wraps. Beautiful jacquard patterns....LOVE! I enjoy our structured carrier for quick trips in and out of the supermarket, and our ring sling for a quick up that is also really pretty. I love them all!! :)

  154. I am new with all this babywearing things because i am a new mom, i have a rebozo wrap and my baby loves it. I would like to try this denim one,looks awesome and very comfy.

  155. I started with a strechty wrap but quickly went to woven wraps. Now I have a ringsling that I LOVE for short distances. For longer distances I still prefer either my ellevil or calin blue, depending on the weather.

    But.. I have been looking for a mei tai, because wrapping "in the wild" isn't my strong suit yet. And I think with a mei-tai that would be easier.

  156. Definitely scc and mei tai! :))

  157. I use a SSC called Luna and a ring sling,and love them both. Dad uses the SSC also, it's their moment every evening when they go for a walk.

  159. I love wraps, but I reach more my ring sling most often :)

  160. LOVE our mei tai but for shorter amounts of time we use our RS with our toddler. We love using our long wrap if our son is going to be in the wrap for a long time without taking him out. We just ordered a size 4 wrap that we hope to use for hip carries and back carries Our Ergo hasn't gotten much love lately...

  161. I only have one carrier, a Hug A Bub. I absolutely adore it, but buying Mei Tai was a close second on my list. This one you have reviewed looks fantastic! If i had more money i could so easily fall down the rabbit hole of too many wraps! lol

  162. I loved my MT, but sold it, so now I'm mostly a wrap and ring sling girl. My ring sling was my first love though, so it will always be my favorite.

  163. I am new to baby wearing, so I have only tried a sling and my SSC. My lo is only 2 weeks so I do not have much experience with either! But so far, the SSC I have (Lilebaby complete) is really comfy! I am anxious to get my hands on a ring sling and a woven wrap as well though!

  164. My fav carrier right now is totally a mei tai, with wovens coming a very close second. This carrier looks so comfy! I love a good pair of jeans to begin with.

    ReplyDelete
  165. What a wonderful review. I'm a big fan of denim and love the fact this one is a linen cotton blend!
    My favorite carrier right now would have to be a mei tai. I am very interested in trying out the wrap conversions because they look so comfy.

  166. I'm really not sure what my favorite carrier is at this point. I haven't tried ANY. Baby comes in early July, so I'd like a variety to find something I like and have as my "go-to" I do like the way the Mei Tei looks, I also like the look of the ring sling, but I know DH would never try something like that, he would prefer an actual carrier. Haven't sorted out which kind we will get yet though. :D

  167. Love that this is reversible. Super cute! Our favorites is SSC's so far but this would definitely turn me on to mei tais!!

  168. I love my wrap, for sure, but I could fall in love with a carrier too :) but at the moment, my one and only wrap is a didymos hoot :)

  169. I love my Storch wrap, but with my wiggly toddler and being preggers, my current fave is my mei tai :-)

  170. love the denim! I've sworn off mei tais in favour of wrapping though...

    ReplyDelete
  171. Love this! It looks super comfortable to wear!

  172. i love versatility. i love a good medium sized wrap that will fit my toddler and 2month old... as well as my meitai.

  173. This carrier looks awesome! I love the denim look and wrap style straps.

  174. Supportivness is our most important quality in wovens, but we have to find some ultra-strong MT ;)
