1. Your Mei Hip arrives threaded for the left hip, which feels natural for most people. The print/contrasting fabric will be visible on the outside, in this configuration (shown above). *Note: Waist buckles are optional. You can remove them and tie the waist straps around your hips with a double knot. If you will be sharing the Mei Hip, this is the fastest way to switch back and forth.
2. The first step in reversing the Mei Hip is to remove the three strap buckles. The picture above shows the buckles removed, but lying in the normal position. 3. Flip
3. Flip the Mei Hip over, so that you see only the solid color fabric, which will now be the outside of the carrier. The picture above shows the buckles placed where they should now go. *Please refer to the “Proper Buckle Threading” instructions, above. Your child’s safety depends on your threading the buckles correctly
4. Thread the buckles onto the straps. The Mei Hip is now properly threaded for the right hip. *Remember that the short shoulder strap will always be located in front of your body. This will help you determine which way to position the Mei Hip on your body.
