I've since come to discover I am pretty uninformed when it comes to baby carriers...the Bjorn was given as a shower gift, and then I graduated to a standard black Ergo after that (which I love but wish it was a little more snazzy). My friend Ziehyun has become and expert on this subject and sent over some of her favorites. She's having a Mei Tai custom made for her. If only I had known I could customize my own fabrics (I'd probably use an old, crazy vintage patchwork) to my carrier! Are any of you fans of particular baby carriers? Let us know!

This baby carrier is like an Ergo but you can customize your own fabrics or choose from a myriad of prints. It's made by Olive and Applesauce in Ann Arbor.

Ultimately, Ziehyun is getting a reversible mei tai custom made (above is the style she's choosing) for only $54. Click here to visit the Etsy shop. Can't wait to see her adorable baby in it! Thanks for sharing info with us Z! For more info in baby wearing you can also go to thebabywearer.com.
