My Second Moby Wrap!
I purchased a Moby Wrap in 2009 for my 3rd child and I loved it. Since my son was born in the fall season, I bought an olive green color, but it became too hot when the weather was hot. The lady at a local baby boutique suggested that I should go for a lighter color. Now pregnant again and due this summer, I purchased another Moby Wrap in the Bliss print/color – which is beautiful. Immediately, I realized that this Moby Wrap’s weight was way lighter than my 1st Moby Wrap. I guess they changed the type of cotton being used. I love how much softer this one is and I know that I will love using this wrap. I will keep using my 1st Moby Wrap for around the house and as a back up in the cooler months. I love wearing my Moby Wrap and it is easy to put on. If you need help learning the different ways to wear your baby, check out youtube videos for Moby Wrap. That is what helped me and now I’m a pro at it!
This wrap was, for a while, the only thing that kept my infant daughter quiet. It allowed me to get stuff done around the house and let her nap on her own time. My daughter is now nearly 9 months. She still loves hanging out in the wrap (facing out now). I would suggest this for every new mother. In fact, I bought one for my sister in law.There are only three drawbacks to this wrap: 1. The price. 2. The warmth. 3. The semi-complicated use. You can fix either one of the first two problems by trying to make your own wrap. You can google how. If you’re not into that, invest in the Moby (and you won’t be sorry). The third problem can be fixed with practice. Or… I have a cheap carrier for situations where you need to move your kid in and out quickly. This other carrier could never replace my Moby, though!
Best wrap EVER for the infant stage.
Not only is this wrap gorgeous but, it was my most favorite and most used wrap until my son was about 10 months old. I know some parents use this with toddlers too but, once my son reached a certain weight, it kept stretching and shifting. But I used it ALL. THE. TIME. for 10 months so it was still worth every penny! (And if you plan to have other kiddos, obviously, it could be reused). But it has a great re-sale value as well. (I got $30 back selling on CL). I recommend this wrap to every new Mommy I know.
Works for me and my baby
This wrap works for us… its cute and my baby seems to like the print and colors too! It takes a little practice to get it right but once you’ve worn it a few times, its really easy and fast to put on. If you don’t want to bother with a do-it-your-self wrap, get a baby carrier like BabyBjorn… my husband likes to wear that a lot!
it is a little ackward getting it to fit to the right size of your baby it is a t-shirt material so when child is in it , it will strech and need to be adjusted basically it is a 12 foot long piece of material that you can buy at a fabric store than go on youtube and learn how to wrap it around you.
I am 5’2” and I am not sure that this works for someone that is smaller than the average person in height. It’s a large long piece of material that with some magic wrapping, can get your newborn close to your chest. I wanted to use this and tried to get my son – 11 weeks now, in it… and for whatever reason didn’t feel secure. I think these are one of those items, you have to borrow it from someone else first, then decide if it works for you and your baby. Had I known there was a petite version, I would have tried to purchase that first so eliminate the amount of fabric I had to deal with to get around my body and get my son into it.
