Moby Wrap Review

I was so happy when a friend gave me a Moby wrap with my second baby... I had heard so many good things about it and it seemed like the perfect newborn carrier.  I was not disappointed!  While it took me a few tries to get the wrap tight enough the first few times, once I had it down it was easy.

The Moby wrap is soft, versatile, and can be a lifesaver with two small children!  My baby loved being snuggled up to my chest peacefully napping while I chased her brother or grocery shopped.  I found that if I put the Moby on before leaving the house, that I could just take her out of the carseat when I got to the store, put her in, maybe tighten it if needed, and be ready to go without having to try to put it on in the parking lot without dragging it in the dirt. 

The Moby wrap is, in my opinion, the BEST infant carrier.  I have ring slings, which I love for 6 months and up, but for new little babies I just love the Moby's softness, the snugness with a floppy little newborn, and how comfortable it is for long periods.  After about 9 months or 20 lbs I would rather use a ring sling or mei tai, but for the newborn period, the Moby ROCKS.  I traded the one I had with my daughter for another carrier, but I am definitely going to get another Moby wrap before our next baby!  I think it is a baby *must have*.

I have to agree with this review; I LOVED my Moby up until about 7 months. Can't wait to use it with another!

Me either! It's so snuggly and perfect with a little newborn... and then you can breath in that heavenly baby smell, too!
