Why is the Mei Tai Baby Carriers so expensive ?

I dont get why it so expensive? Isnt it just made out of cotton?
My son and i hate the moby wrap, its too stretchy, hes too heavy for 8 1/2 months, i have scoliosis and he starts to slide down because its stretchy. I hate it with a passion. I dont want another stretchy wrap, i cant afford a woven but would want a mei tai instead.. He likes looking out and has a habit of leaning forward a lot.

what do you think?

  • theres one on ebay if you are in the UK, shipped from thailand i think it's around £30 delivered. My daughter is nearly a year old and it carries her weight just fine.

    there is some studies that show when baby faces out their hip development can suffer so i tend to use my mei tai on my hip so my daughter can still look forward :)

    hope this helps :)

  • Check Craigslist. Another similar carrier to check Craigslist for is an Ergo Baby Carrier. I have one and I love it.
