If you’ve been looking for a versatile baby carrier that gives you the most use for your money, Beachfront Baby has you covered. Meet the Everyday Buckle Meh Dai!
What is a Buckle Meh Dai? A Meh Dai is a baby carrier style originating in East Asia. Meh dai means “back carrying strap” where “meh/bei” means “carry on your back,” and “dai” means strap. It includes a body panel with ties at each of the 4 corners. A buckle meh dai replaces the bottom ties worn around the waist with webbing and a buckle. This means less fabric and more security with that reassuring “click.”

Although our buckle meh dai includes statements that is is for children weighing up to 35lbs, it has been safety tested to hold children up to 40lbs. Our tags and instructions will be updated to reflect this weight in the future.

What makes the Everyday Buckle Meh Dai special? Where do we start? This hi-tech knit fabric is made with 100% recycled PET water bottles right here in the US.
The REPREVE® yarn used in our Everyday Carriers is certified to be free of harmful substances according to OEKO-TEX® Standard 100. It is light as a feather out of the water, but strong enough to hold toddlers up to 40lbs. It wicks moisture away from you and baby, keeping you both cool & comfy while on dry land. A single layer includes a UPF factor of 15, meaning it blocks about 87% of UVA and 95% of UVB rays- and with multiple layers, you & baby get extra protection!
But our Everyday Buckle Meh Dai isn’t just for land use! Like our Original Beachfront Baby® mesh line, the Everyday Carrier can be worn in the water! Wear baby in the shower, at the splash pad, or pool & even into the ocean! The fabric absorbs a bit more water than our mesh line, but it stays lightweight when wet and dries within a short time. One size carriers fit parents who wear shirt size SM- XL. (2XL-3Xl parents- please contact us for special ordering)
We recommend rinsing your Buckle Meh Dai in fresh water after wearing in chlorinated or salt water to prolong the lifespan of the fabric & components.
Because your Everyday Carrier is 100% polyester, care couldn’t be easier! Machine wash in warm or cold water on delicate, and hang to dry or run through the dryer on low/knits. (We recommend using a lingerie bag to keep the buckle from banging around the dryer.)
Each Everyday Carrier includes instructions with photos to guide you in wearing your baby safely & comfortably.
Please use care & common sense when taking your baby out in the sun or water. Don’t do anything with your baby in the carrier that you wouldn’t do with him/her in your arms. By purchasing a Beachfront Baby® Carrier, you agree to release Beachfront Baby, LLC & it’s members, employees and/or retailers from any & all liability for any injury which might result from the use of our carrier. The wearer is responsible for using the carrier safely & correctly.
Because parents are concerned about the number of chemicals in their children’s lives, we are happy to say that REPREVE® is made from PET bottles and PET does not contain BPA.
