Palm and Pond Mei Tai Review

An extremely lightweight mei tai that comes in many gorgeous patterns.

Best Features

  • Very thin, soft cotton fabric that doesn’t get too hot.
  • Fully machine-washable.
  • Reversible.
  • Available in many different stunning patterns.

Additional Patterns Available

Palm and Pond Mei Tai – Red Stars

Potential Issues

  • Since it is so thin and light, some people may find there is not enough padding around the hips and shoulder straps. This is more of a problem for heavier babies, or as your baby gains weight.
  • While some patterns of the Palm and Pond  Mei Tai are no longer made, but are still sought after, those can be more expensive.


The Palm and Pond Mei Tai is a great mei-tai carrier, and is less expensive than most of the other popular brands of mei-tais. Due to the large number of different patterns available, it is more likely to be unique and better suited to your own personal style.
