yep - love it! it takes some time to get on, but then i can just leave it on. way more comfy & secure feeling than RS or pouch. plus, it keeps us warm.

Yes, I am wearing mine right now.It is quick to get on once you learn how, I was a little worried at first.But I think it is a lot easier to get him in and out of the Moby than it is with the fleece pouch I got. The fleece pouch is super warm so I only use that when we walk to take Dd to school.
I saw a bunch of mama's at the Oregon Country Fair wearing nothing but Mobys and skirts. But that isn't anything at the Country fair where a lot of people are wandering around nude anyways.

the moby is definitely easier for me than my RS, if that makes any sense. while we've only perfected the tummy to tummy hold, i feel like he is more secure than in the RS.

mine just arrived this weekend, and i like it so far, it's so comfy.
the only thing i don't like about it is that it's so long putting it on anywhere but at home seems hard.

and a question for experienced moby mamas - how do you get the center part (the part that you wrap around you first, with the tag on it) tight enough to support baby's head when it's pulled up?

It is very comfy

I have a cuddly wrap which is basically the same thing. We love it! I swear its like a shot of tequila for Zara. My BIL saw dh wearing dd in it at Christmas and asked if I could make him one. They just had a baby today and asked again. Guess I'd better go find some fabric!

Love my moby! I have the moby D with green asian silk for the front panel. It's perfect like pp said for playing with dd. I can get up and down from the floor easily, do laundry and dishes safely. I love how the weight is distributed evenly.

I am LOVING my stretchy wrap too! Nothing better with a cuddly newborn

I was going to get a Moby, but being in the UK, the prices of the Calin Bleu were actually pretty competitive with that of Mobys so I just got one. Mine is a yummy microfleece Calin Blue in red with wine panel! LOVE IT!! :
