Hi, everyone! With DS I used a big long sheath of fabric to wrap him up when he was little. I found it a little bulky b/c of the fabric I chose. I don't feel like/have the time to make one.

This time I think I'm going to spring for a real wrap style. Which is best? The Moby? Someone has a sleepywrap on craigslist.

I have a ringsling, a mei tai, and an ergo. This is the only one missing from my stash, and I really like using it for when they are super little.

So, what do you think? TIA!

I'd go for a German woven wrap that you can use for a little squishy baby right up to a humongous toddler (like mine). I think stretchy wraps have too short a life expectancy and have no resale value if you don't love them enough to keep them.

I third the recommendation for a GSW (german style woven) - you can find great deals on used and nicely broken in wraps on TBW FSOT or DS. I think stretchy wraps are great for a newborn but are quickly saggy and too hot!
