I just bought a Moby for a friend, so of course when it arrived I had to try it out! It is awesome, i put my 5 mo. dd in the front facing carry and it felt great. I have several slings (OTSBH, Maya, Kissasling) but am thinking I need a wrap too. My slings always wear out my shoulder. I'm all psyched up to learn all of the carries, esp. back!!

I'm almost sold on the Ella roo----the beautiful fabric, versatility of carrying heavier children, less hot....but I'm wondering if the tail bothers anyone? It doesn't appear to be tapered. I just wonder if the fringe/non=tapered end of the ER would be bulky/annoying.....I liked that the Moby was so non-bulky.

Or should I get both?!

Thanks girls, for your always wonderful and thoughtful advice!!

you should get both... but imo the tail end is not annoying at all.

I've never had a problem with the tail of my Roo, even if I bought the longest one (because of dd and heavier babysitter) and I am really skinny. HTH

I love the tail personally. So blasted pretty to have that fringe there. I feel almost elegant wearing my EllaRoo.

I'm so in love with the darned thing...

Never had a problem with it. The fabric is so light, that it doesn't make for a large knot at all. I agree with everyone that the EllaRoo Wraps are *gorgeous*. And I second the thought that you should get both. :LOL

I'm pretty sure I'm going to buy one of the ER's.....just got to find a way to #1-explain to my husband why we need just ONE more carrier, and #2-find a way to pay for it! I think I"m going to have a big rummage sale soon (and sell my never used crib, for one thing!) so maybe I can use that money. That would be a good trade-off, crib for baby wrap! yay! Thanks for your expert advice mamas!

I can hardly wait to get one......everywhere I go with a sling, I get comments about how that is the cutest thing I've ever seen, oh that baby looks so content, I wish I would have had something like that when I had my kids, etc...Just wait til people see the ER!! I think I'm going to get the Maija fabric.

Thanks again------
