    With my older DD, we never used the Mobywrap much - the sling and the Ergobaby worked better for her. But with our younger DD, who is now 6 mos, the Mobywrap is practically all we use. But I'm confused about leg positioning. My understanding was that it was critical for the baby's legs to...

    <p>Please someone suggest which Sling I should buy for my 2 week old! I have an Ergo carrier but it's so bulky and I would prefer a sling or wrap at this age. I desperately need one! I looked at SevenSlings but the reviews are terrible.</p> <p> </p> <p>If anyone could help me I would appreciate...

    <p>I'm transitioning my 6 month old from Moby to ....yes, that's the question. DD  was a ring-sling hip carry girl. She hated being on my back, and was content to watch everything I was doing, and I just put her behind my arm when I needed to do something and be sure she couldn't touch it.  DS...

    <p>Hi Mamas,</p> <p>Writing quickly, so I hope I am able to express myself well enough...</p> <p> </p> <p>My DS was born 6 days ago at 34 weeks 5 days.  He has been in the NICU since.  I feel lucky b/c he's had no breathing problems besides the occasional small h2o dip when eating, but even...

    <p>Hi,</p> <p> </p> <p>We just started carrying our 2.5 month old DS in a Moby wrap.  He loves facing out, but sometimes he does this weird thing where he looks like he's bearing down.  Does anyone know what's up with that?  It only happens when I wear him outward facing with his legs out.  At...

    <p>My son is one month old, I introduced the moby wrap at 2 1/2 weeks, newborn hug hold, but he is a little wiggly worm and often won't rest in it, try to stretch his legs, lift his head out and look around, push himself away with his arms...</p> <p> </p> <p>What can I do? Is there a different...

    <p>I just got back from an appointment with DD where they did an ultrasound of her hips, and apparently both of her hips aren't quite developing how they'd like and showing signs of possible hip dysplasia. The woman doing the scan said that since she was only 6 weeks old, it's not too much of a...

    <p>I ask because my DH <em>refuses </em>to. I have tried countless times to sell him on the perks and benefits (you hold our baby AND have the use of both hands!!) but nope. He won't even try. Just wondering if this is your experience too.</p>

    <p>I hate to say it, but with my last newborn, I didn't really like the Moby at the newborn stage. I am looking into woven wraps because this baby will be born sometime in the late spring and I want something light weight for the summer. I was wondering if you can even use woven wraps for...

    <p>I'm having a bit of trouble getting a comfortable fit with my babe in a ring sling. I have large breasts (which have gotten bigger now that they're full of milk) and the part of the sling that goes up to the rings is fitting funny around them. </p> <p> </p> <p>Any tips or suggestions for...

    <p>I've been using a moby wrap exclusively since my LO was 8lbs. Now LO is about 20 lbs. I'm finding my hips and back tire more quickly now, which I anticipated. I have read a lot about some carriers offering more support that prevents back strain, especially the more structure carries, like...

    <p>Please give advice or product advice on babywearing a newborn for those of us in ridiculously hot climates . I'm in central Texas where we have a record busting over 70 days of 100 plus degree weather.  I have a 22 month old when his brother will be here, and no family support for taking...

    <p>Hi all -- Not sure what kind of answer I'm looking for here....</p> <p> </p> <p>I have a Moby and one of those Seven slings... and a Maya Ring Sling - I find them all hard to use on my 5 week old kiddo.</p> <p> </p> <p>I live in Guatemala where babywearing is super common and my MIL is here...

    Hi! I wore my first son and he has never taken to a stroller except for long distances (which is when it's more useful anyway) honestly I've used my strollers around a dozen times since he was born. However now that he's 2 1/2 he's getting heavier to carry. So it's making me wonder about how it...

    <p>I have a nine-week-old that loves to be held constantly and seems to enjoy being worn.  But when she wakes up in the carrier, she breaks my ear drums with her screams.  Frequently if I just jiggle her around, she falls right back asleep.  But I still worry that she's in pain.  She never...

    <p>I have a Moby and a Maya ring sling. My 7 week old pushes her head out but she doesn't have full head control yet. I end up holding her head with one hand which makes it impossible to do anything with two hands. If she is asleep she will lay against me. Am I wrapping her wrong? Is there a...

    <p>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?</p> <p>Also any other carrier you like better for a newborn?</p>

    <p>My youngest is 4 so I haven't been in the baby wearing forum or mindset for a while now but I've noticed a few commercials with baby wearing in them. I just saw a SEARS commercial with a baby in a moby wrap. Has it gone mainstream? Has anyone else noticed this?</p>
