The fly tai felt so nice and soft when it arrived. After trying a wrap, ring sling, soft carrier, this fly tai is the only thing my baby didn't scream in. In fact, after a few minutes, he actually fell asleep! I love the adjustability of the front panel, so it can grow with my baby. It also is comfortable enough that I can still sit down while wearing it. And of course, I love that it somehow has built-in baby sleepy dust. :)
I previously considered myself a babywearing failure. I tried 3 different things with my first kiddo and they were either uncomfortable for me or she cried in them. I tried the Fidella with my son at a Babywearing International mtg and fell in love right away... ordered one before leaving the mtg. I loved how buttery soft it was around my waist and how I could tighten it perfectly to my shape and size. My new one arrived just as soft (no breaking in required) and my son always falls asleep when I put him in it! LOVE!
I really wanted to try a Mai tai. I went back and forth between this and a Lenny lamb. When I asked on the babywearing fb page hands down almost everyone said GET THE FLY TAI. So I agreed with the masses and bought this bad boy. Straight out of the package it is so soft (makes me wish I would have gotten a wrap too). The whole thing is adjustable to fit your baby perfectly. The wrap style straps are a dream. And it came in the cutest bag made out of the same wrap. Overall I use this for quick ups around the house and especially back carries. Impossible to pop a seat with this lovely piece of awesome!
I borrowed a fly tai from a friend after admiring from afar. Our first time up and my 25lb toddler was weightless! I knew I had to have one. As an experienced wrapper, I appreciate the ease and flexibility of the fly tai. My husband has even taken a liking to it. Shipping from 5MR was fast! Very happy with everything about this purchase.
Th Fidella Flytai could easily be the only carrier I ever needed. I was able to size the seat down small enough for my short-legged baby long before he could fit into any SSC. All of the adjustment that can be made to the panel make for a super comfy custom fit for baby through every growth spurt. When nothing else will fit quite right, the Flytai will always adjust to be exactly right. We also love the wrap fabric that it is converted from. It was so soft and floppy straight out of the package. There was no breaking-in period. It's been the most comfortable and supportive carrier from day 1. I have also loved the long padded-to-wrap straps as an introduction to wrapping. As long as we have babies to wear, we will have a Flytai permastashed.
