Why we love it:
This podaegi is is gorgeous – a real statement piece, handmade from woven wrap fabric by Rock Solid Slings. It really shows off what a talented podaegi maker can do for you! It features a cheery rainbow applique on one side and plain blue on the other. It has wide wrap straps and no hood.
Podaegis are fab. Podaegi (pronounced poh-deh-gee) are based on Korean designs. Podaegis have quilted, wide blankets with a strap across the top. Podaegis are intended for back carrying. They are like mei dais but without the waist straps, so essentially a rectangle of material (called the blanket) with two shoulder straps, one on each top corner. You tie the shoulder straps much like you do with a mei dai, by crossing them over and under baby’s knee pits, to form a seat with the blanket exactly where it’s needed. One podaegi will therefore suit from newborn to pre-schooler with no faffing in between to adjust.
You might see this type of carrier refered to as a ‘pod’ but this shortening of podaegi is now considered outdated. Podaegi means “baby blanket with strap.“
