I love this wrap

Posted

Pros: comfortable, versatile

Cons: gets hot in the summer, pricy

I love this wrap. It was great when DD was a tiny newborn and we still love it now at almost 6 months. It did take a few weeks to really figure it out, but now I can put it on and get her in no time, and it's so easy to switch from forward-facing to facing towards me if she gets sleepy.   I put it on before I leave the house to avoid the fabric dragging in the parking lot.

The learning curve is worth it

Posted

Pros: comfort, security

Cons: learning curve, lots of material

I was new to babycarrying when my daughter was born last year.  I needed something that would be easy on my back and shoulders, and the Moby was recommended because the weight is distributed.  I've loved it!  It's a little overwhelming when you first see it, because there is a lot of material, but I quickly got the hang of tying it after a few practice runs.  My daughter just turned one, and I still wrap her in it!  She's comfortable and snuggly warm!

Pros: comfy and soft

Cons: maybe a it long...

the moby was a GODSEND for us! DD was born with intestinal issues and i literally had her in the wrap 6+hrs a day until she was 4 months old then 3+ hrs a day until she was about 7 months. she didnt like going on my back in the wrap so after 7 months we mostly did a hip carry in the wrap or a sling and a back carry in a mei tie. i would never have been able to make it the first 6 months of her life without the moby seriously! i also have a HORRIBLE back and at the end of the day i didnt feel great but the moby offered far more support and comfort than any other carrier i have ever used.

We love our Moby!

I have to say that we love our Moby! I've tried several other carriers, but none of them seem to have the same back support and overall comfort. I've been carrying my daughter in it since she was days old, and now at 8 months she gets excited when she sees me putting it on and tries to climb in :)  She's over 18 lbs now, but it is still quite comfy to carry her in it.    I love that there are so many different holds, but you still put it on the same way every time. There is a learning curve, but once one figures that out it is super easy to put. I highly recommend this carrier; we wear ours all the time.    I've washed ours many times and the color has...

I love everything about this wrap!

Posted

Pros: versatile, soft, comfortable, sooo much back support, washable, cozy

Cons: takes some learning and can be warm in hotter weatehr

I love our moby and am about to use it for our the next baby. It is the only carrier that adequately supports my back and doesn't make it ache. Dh even liked it if I'd wrap it for him.  It does have a bit of a learning curve but after just a few tries I was a master. Videos on youtube helped a lot. I wore this from newborn until ds was too squirmy to want to be carried at a year.

Great for tiny ones

Posted

Pros: comfortable, cozy for small babies

Cons: only works until about 15-16 lbs.

I love my Moby wrap for a baby up to about 4-5 months.  Both my daughters have loved riding around in it and sleep better in it than any other carrier.

Best wrap for new babies

Posted

Pros: Cozy, well made, comfortable

Cons: A little long for short, skinny mamas, too warm in hot climates

I bought this wrap before my first child was born, back in 2009, but I still recommend it to everyone I know. It's the gift I give to first time mamas, every time. It may seem a little daunting at first, but it's well worth the time you spend learning how to use it. I think it took me about 3-4 days to get the hang of it and once I did, it was so easy to throw on. It's the wrap I use with my babes when they are brand new until they are about a year old. It's easy to adjust and so comfortable. I honestly can't think of many bad things to say, except it's a little warm in the heat of Texas summers. Other than that, it's perfect!

Pros: nicely made

Cons: lots of fabric

I bought this in anticipation of making life simpler with my 2nd child. My 2nd child did not like being in this for more than 10 minutes. It is also a pain to try and wrap myself, while trying not to get it on the ground and a screaming baby wanting me. I really did try to make this work for me. It may have just been my high needs baby. I will try this again for my 3rd baby due in February.

Moby Wrap is great

Posted

Pros: versitle

Cons: takes time to learn how to use it

I love the moby wrap, it is our only carrier from birth to 9 months. I love how versatile it is, I can use it in several different ways depending on baby's mood or what i am doing.
