What color Moby do you have? I've heard some mamas say to get the darker colors because they hide stains. And then I've heard advice to get the "natural" color to hide spit-up. Which is best? What works best with your wardrobe?

I have a black one and I hate it! It shows every hair, fuzz, lint, etc. I am pretty fanatical about cleaning too, but this thing is like a magnet! I wish I had asked this question before I bought it. I have a hot sling and a mei tai that are baby blue and a ring sling that is olive and they are all great!

Mine is chocolate brown.... mainly because I got it at a yardsale w/ a zolo wear ring sling (both for $35 ) but I do like it I'm an earthy tone kinda girl so it works w/ my wardrobe.

I have the turquoise UV one, I loved it when DS was small. Pick the color you will be willing to see on yourself whenever you look in the mirror.

I have a blue and green (#22) pattern... it looks better on my husband cause it is a more manly color. My MIL picked it out and she has a tendency to pick ugly things.

I bought a navy blue one. The color was primarily decided by the combination of what I liked and what DH would wear because he really wants to BW.

Me, married to DH, my childhood sweetheart. Lucky mom to an amazing DD (10/15/10), , a funny little DS (1/11/13) , and 3 silly dogs. Expecting someone new February 14, 2015!

We have one moby in moss (DH picked that color) and one in sienna (mine). I actually like the moss much better--it seems to hide the spit-up and dog hair better than the darker sienna, though I got the darker color thinking it would be the other way around.

I have the black one with asian brocade. Used it a lot when my baby was little. It did show spit up, but it washed just fine.

Yeah, I got it to hid stains, but the amt of lint and hair it attracts drives me bonkers too. I lent it to a friend with a husky type of dog and she gave it back to me... now I feel like I will never get the dog hair off of it. It's been through the wash twice already and still has dog hair on it...

I have the Sienna and a blue Moby D with fleece, and neither of them attracted more dirt than the other, but I do wash each of them once a week to keep them clean & fresh! That's when it pays off to have 2

My Moby is the orange color (sienna), which I love. It matches everything, because I have nothing remotely like it in my wardrobe!

Best of luck!

Cheers,

i was very boring. I had a simple black moby. it hid the extra post-partum bulge, or so I thought.

Navy blue. It does show spit up, but that doesn't bother me too much. Other than that, I've been liking it.
