If you are a babywearer or an aspiring babywearer, you have likely heard of a Moby Wrap baby carrier. I looked at the pictures of these soft wrap style carriers and thought "Brain, hurts! Complex, much!" However, I could not deny that these carriers are very popular so I decided to give them a try.
When I got my first Moby Wrap in the mail I was pretty skeptical about this really long piece of fabric. It looked so complicated! I was very happy to discover that it is actually very simple to put on. My first try at putting on a Moby Wrap baby carrier took less than a minute. I showed it to someone who had just had her second baby by caesarean. She was looking for a comfortable baby carrier because she was not allowed to lift her son's car seat. She bought my sample from me on the spot! Even with a two week old incision she found the Moby Wrap easy to put on and very comfortable to wear.
Moby Wraps are made of really high quality cotton knit so they have just the right amount of stretch and breathability. The wide fabric distributes weight very evenly so babywearing is as easy as can be. There are no "pull spots" where the carrier pulls on your shoulders or neck as can happen with a pouch style sling. Don't even get me started on a backpack style carrier. Those things are torture on my back.
The Moby Wrap adjusts easily so mom and dad can share the same carrier, grandma, grandpa or babysitter can share it too. It is a one size fits most carrier so you don't need to worry about sizing.
If you plan to travel with your baby during the holidays you really need this carrier. It is truly hands free. With other carriers I always feel the need to keep one hand on the baby. With the Moby Wrap I feel safe using both hands for other things. This is a lifesaver if you are in an airport struggling with tickets and luggage or shopping and want to keep both hands free. Best of all, there are no metal parts to set off the metal detectors so you won't find yourself having to remove your baby carrier in a crowded airport.
The Moby Wrap is safe for use from premie through 35 pounds so you will get years of use from this deceptively simple carrier. Parents of twins love Moby Wraps because you can easily carry newborn twins in one carrier.
If you need added warmth or support you can try a Moby D. This is a Moby Wrap with an added panel of silk, woven or fleece fabric. The extra panel adds warmth and a bit of extra support as well as a fun fashion fabric. The Moby Wrapis machine washable and dryable and has no parts to break or seams to tear. It comes in a variety of colors. Chocolate and moss seem to be the favorite colors right now. If you want chocolate though, it is best to hurry! This is one of several limited edition colors and it sells out quickly.
