The Lenny Hybrid Half Buckle Meh Dai Carrier is a unique carrier that combines the advantages of an adjustable soft structured carrier (SSC) and a wrap.
The structured, adjustable panel and buckle waistband make it easy to position the baby comfortably. Two wrap straps for arms stabilize the baby's position on the sides. This makes it possible to carry a newborn baby safely and allows for extra support, comfort, and customization options. Height and width adjustments on the panel allow the carrier to grow with your baby from newborn to 2 years old.
Safety: Certified in accordance with safety standard F2236-16a ASTM and PD CEN/TR 16512: 2015
Versatility: One carrier from newborn baby to toddler, safe carrying of the baby from birth (7lbs) up to a weight of 44lbs
Functionality: Front carry from birth, hip or back carry from 4-6 months old. Adjustable panel and comfortable wrap shoulder straps ensure the perfect fit and correct, ergonomic position of the child at every stage of development
Quality: High quality materials from locally sourced materials and child-safe dyes. The entire production process takes place in one location in Poland. Machine woven fabric on the loom is then hand-sewn
Beauty: Unique fabrics with complex and rich colors and textures--something for everyone!
Shelter: Adjustable hood so you can cover your baby's head when needed
Features & benefits
Panel adjustment: Easily adjust the panel as the baby grows for long-term use. Button pull-tab adjusters on each side of the panel adjust the height. The inside of the waistband has a velcro adjustment with helpful markers of suggested width by the child's age. Simply lift, slide, and press down to set the width for your child.
Removable hood: Keep the hood on to support the baby's head or to protect them from the sun and wind. Or remove it, so it's out of the way
Magnetic closure waistband pocket: Keep your phone, wallet, and/or keys in the pocket so you can be out and about without needing to carry extra bags
Compatible with suck pads & reach straps (sold separately): Tap here to see suck pad options to protect your carrier from little one sucking on the straps. Also provides a great way to attach a pacifier or small toy
- Elastic safety bands: An extra feature with support buckles, the added elastic bands protect your child should a buckle be opened accidentally
This carrier's width and height can be adjusted to fit from newborn to 2 years old. With any adjustable carrier, the fit will look different at different stages of your child's development.
A newborn in the carrier will be fully supported knee to knee with height to the base of the ear in a proper fit. Typically, the waistband will be high on the caregiver's waist/under the breasts with a newborn to achieve a proper fit.
A 2 year old in the carrier will likely be arms out with the height around armpit level in a proper fit. The carrier will support the leg without going fully knee to knee, instead supporting the thighs. This is a safe, comfortable fit for the child. Typically, the waistband will be lower on the caregiver's waist, nearer to the hips, with an older child to achieve a proper fit.
The child has outgrown the carrier when the panel height is mid-back and cannot be raised (too low--child could fall backwards) and when the child does not feel comfortably supported.
If wearing the Hybrid while pregnant, you may need to put the waistband above or below your baby bump for a more comfortable fit. We recommend trying different types of tie-offs to avoid uncomfortable pressure on breast tissue, such as a sternum twist or a Tied Tibetan knot-less tie-off. We recommend adding sling rings to avoid pressure from knots. These tie-offs can be helpful when breastfeeding also.
If wearing the Hybrid as a caregiver with physical limitations, consider alternative tie-offs, different waist-band positions, and sling rings to decrease pressure from knots. You may find it helpful to change strap tie-off styles during a wearing session.
Consider adding sling rings to do more advanced tie-offs and more comfortable knot-less finishes.
