Ring Sling
The fully adjustable Cat's Meow Ring Sling offers you a hands free  (and versatile) way to keep your baby close during daily activities. It's unique design offers you the comfort of a padded sling without the bulk and inconvenience of improper adjustment in sizing.  As it is unpadded (except for the comfort shoulder pad) it can be sized down for the smallest parent/child combination or up for the largest.  It is compact enough for the diaper bag, yet secure enough for newborns and toddlers to 35 lbs. alike.  Available in a wide array of fabrics and colors. (Great for Dad's too!)
Also available as a Water Sling which offers you a convenient babywearing experience during water activities, a day at the beach or poolside, and even while showering.
The Cat's Meow Ring Sling is "ONE-SIZE-FITS-MOST".  Slings measure approximately 6.5 feet from rings to tail.  If you need one SMALLER or LARGER, please indicate so at time of order, as petite and plus sizes are also available upon request. 
* Each Ring Sling comes complete with full detailed/illustrated instructions for use, demonstrating the many ways you can carry your child in the sling including cradle, kangaroo, and hip,  carry modes.


No rings to fumble with, to straps to tie...The Cat's Meow Baby Pouch offers you the same hands-free way to carry your baby and accomplish your daily activities, in a simple to use  pouch.  These carriers are "Sized*" to get the purrfect fit.  Available in a variety of colors and they are REVERSIBLE (you get two carriers in one!)  Choose from stretch or non-stretch fabrics.
*Sizing:  Measure loosely (w/ a soft measuring tape or string) from the outer-most point of your shoulder (over the boobs, not between them) to your opposite hip.  This measurement should fall somewhere between the top and bottom measurement of the desired pouch.  (If you prefer a snugger fit order down.  For more room, order up.) 
**We want you to be satisfied with the fit of your pouch...sizing is sometimes difficult.  If you have sizing questions please e-mail .  If you are unhappy with the size of your pouch, you may exhange it (in NEW condition) within 14 days for a different size.
 The Cat's Meow Wrap style baby carriers are available in both Woven and Mesh and feature tapered ends for ease in tying.  They are  our most Versatile Carrier - you can wear your baby in almost any position.   Most people find them extremely comfortable to wear, even with a heavy baby, as the baby's weight can be spread widely over both shoulders and the waist/hips.  When tied properly (complete instructions included) they are extremely secure, and  can be used for newborns right through to older toddlers. We offer several different lengths to suit your build and tying preferences.
Mei Tai
Based on the classic Asian Baby Carrier, the Padded Purrfect Mei Tai features solid triple layer construction and sturdy 4.5 inch straps at the shoulders and waist.  Snuggle your baby in style and comfort, as this Mei Tai has padded shoulder straps, pretty scalloped edging, and is REVERSIBLE.  To give you the purrfect fit, they are available in two sizes (see details below). 
The Padded Purrfect Mei Tai offers a great, hands free way to carry your baby through your daily activities, which has been proven beneficial to both baby and parents alike.  The quadruple strap design disperses the weight of baby evenly across both shoulders, hips, and back, to lessen strain.  Easy to "tie" baby on in both front, back, and even hip carries.  Suitable from birth* to toddlerhood.  Available in a variety of colors. Machine washable.
*When using with a newborn (up to 3 months old) special modifications must be made to the tying procedure.  First, ALWAYS keep newborn legs inside the carrier "froggy style" rather than spreading the legs as with an older baby.  Second, rather than tying the shoulder straps under the baby's bottom, they should be tied around the baby's back for additional support.


  • Regular--Long Body, great for toddlers and infants alike.  Provides head support for young babies as well as for sleeping on the go.  Great for discreet nursing.  Can be "rolled" for arms out carries as well.  *Best Seller!!!
  • Plus--Just like our regular, but slightly larger body and longer straps for plus size adults.
