Welcome to the Family Tais family of baby carriers! We're Creating the Tais that Bond!
Family Tais were “born” when Dale Ann began researching baby carriers for her adoption trip to China. Many of the typical carriers she found on the market were designed for newborns or small infants. Since most children who are adopted internationally are older babies and toddlers, those just wouldn’t work. Then, she found mei tais (pronounced may ties) and ring slings, which are perfect for wearing babies of all sizes. She discovered that in addition to the practical reasons so many people wear their babies, baby wearing could help promote bonding and attachment for families created by adoption. She teamed with an expert sewer and experienced mother, her sister Jana, to bring you Family Tais: carriers that are both fashionable and practical for all families.
