    Please can you tell me what you use in terms of changing bag when babywearing, mine is not really gonna work as it only has a shoulder strap and I can't figure out how to carry jasper and the bag at the same time :shrug:

    Also how old does he have to be before his legs can be splayed in a mei tai?

    Thanks :flower:

    if you are carrying on the front, just put your stuff in a back pack

    I tend to travel light so a small hand bag or shoulder bag is fine. When I wear her on my front a rucksack works really well. You can also get Onbags that have two wrap straps to tie on, or other babywearing bags with ties or ring sling-type straps. I'm going to have a go at making my own when I've found my sewing machine peddle!

    I used to have a rucksack for when she was on my front. I bought a bag from H&M that was quite big, but had straps that tie together, so I could have it across my body, and under Alice's bum that worked very well. That was a couple of months ago so they may still have it. It was white with grey stripes (I dyed it purple though!) and they have a flowery one.

    Legs can be out as soon as the baby wants to (kicking against the material is a good sign) if they are still too small, you can narrow the bottom with some ribbon.

    I have a bag on wheels. Works great when I am out for a long time and on public transport because it is really light to pull behind me. So much lighter than what it would be if I carried it.

    I just shove a few cloth diapers and a wetbag in my purse instead of using a diaper bag. Then I tuck the purse strap underneath the carrier strap/wrap/sling.
