Are there any brands that I should avoid? Any that are better than others? TIA!

Avoid infantino. The straps are angled weird and don't wrap around securely. I also suggest getting one with padded shoulders. I love my freehand!

It may work with a woman with broad shoulders and a large tot, but I don't see it working with a baby at all. The straps go out instead of up, so when I pulled them up over my shoulders they made a huge gap between mei tai and baby, and I always felt like she was going to fall out.
But of course, that's my body and my baby's body. I just was baffled when I looked at the difference between that and other mei tais, I don't understand why the straps are made to go out. Then I looked closely at the pics on the box and all the kids are older and sitting up and even back a little, there's definitely space between them and the moms.
There's no one blanket answer for anyone though!
