I just had my baby Friday. She is 6 days old today. My friend is sending me a moby wrap. How old does she need to be to safely be carried? I had a ring sling with my other babies. Is it easy so breastfeed in a moby?

Also any other carrier you like better for a newborn?

Congrats on your baby!  You can wear the moby as soon as it arrives.

If the Moby feels overwhelming to you a ring sling is a good alternative.

I used a Moby pretty much right away and my baby was 5lb 12 oz. I found it worked better to put the Moby on folded rather than bunched, especially since she was small. Congrats and good luck!

I used a wrap with my ds from day one.  In fact, unless he was eating he would be in the wrap right next to me!  I was able to nurse him while carrying him, but he would sometimes find it too confining once he was a bit older.

As soon as she's born! Congrats on your baby. And you will LOVE the Moby!
