Ins and Outs of the Fidella Fly Tai Baby Carrier

Everything you need to know about Fidella's Flytai

THE INS AND OUTS OF THE FIDELLA FLY TAI

If you are looking at getting a meh dai baby carrier, there are a lot of amazing features of a Fidella Flytai and for me in terms of comfort and adjustability, it is one of my favourite brands!  The Fidella Flytai is a beautiful and soft version of a meh dai and with three different sizes (baby, new and toddler).  Due to these options and the adjustability features of the baby carrier, there is one that is perfect for your baby at this moment of time and beyond. The Flytai is a meh dai style baby carrier which means that it has tie off waist and shoulder straps attached to a back panel.

Features of the Flytai:

– Padded waist belt and shoulder straps for extra comfort as they sit comfortably without digging into you
– The shoulder straps have an option where they can also be spread over your shoulder onto your upper arms which can also help with weight distribution
– You can wear your baby on your front or back
– All Flytai’s are a wrap conversion meaning that it is made from Fidella’s woven wrap material which is soft, moulds to your baby’s body and they have a great range of designs
– Being a meh dai, it can easily be swapped between wears without adjusting any straps.  All the wearer has to do is tighten and tie the straps
– All the straps are generous lengths which means that they will fit the majority of wearers
– Abundant adjustability options for your baby as you can adjust the size of the seat, height of the back panel and neck area.  This means that it will fit your baby now, allows for optimal positioning and will grow with them!
– The hood can also be cinched so that you can use either as neck and head support or you can attach one side of the hood into your shoulder straps to provide head support.  Both options don’t cover your baby’s face so that they can breathe easily and to ensure safety
– Being a meh dai, you can also use the shoulder straps to reinforce the carry when your baby is bigger and to also extend the seat (like the pictures on the top of the page)
– It is also a cooler option due to the woven material and as there is airflow in the sides when you tie off the shoulder straps under your baby’s legs

Fidella Flytai Sizes and Comparison:

If you are unsure which Flytai size to purchase, it can be useful to try them on and/or measure and weigh your child to ensure that they will fit safely.  Never go up a size in the hopes that it will last your baby longer as this can be a safety issue – your baby may be a falls risks and T.I.C.K.S safety guidelines may not be met.  For more about babywearing safety head HERE
