Are you looking for a way to keep your baby close? Maybe you have a fussy baby that is only soothed by being held by their mama. A Moby Wrap is what you need!
The Moby Wrap was designed so that you and your baby can be close and comfortable. These soft wraps are made of 100% cotton (also available in organic cotton) and are super soft with one-way stretch, allowing for total comfort and breathability. They are one-size which allows for just about anyone to use the same wrap - mom, dad, grandma - anyone can use it and customize the fit.
Moby Wraps allow for ergonomically correct positioning for both you and your sweet baby. There is a wide shoulder support and it utilizes your entire back and shoulders to evenly distribute your baby's weight. Your baby will be supported in a healthy fashion, with their legs spread and supported from the thigh to the knee joint, to help prevent hip dysplasia. They can accommodate babies up to 35 pounds.
Caring for your Moby Wrap could not be easier. It is machine washable and comes in a matching fabric pouch for easy storage and portability. Another great thing about this wrap is that is comes in several beautiful solid colors and patterns. They are also available in the MLB™ Edition so you can "wrap up for the game" and support your favorite team!
Moby Wrap Review
I received the "Hoot" Moby Wrap as a gift before my little one was born. I have to admit, at first I was intimidated by it. I wasn't sure I'd be able to figure out how to get it on and wear it correctly. I'm happy to report that I was wrong on both counts. After watching the instructional videos on the Moby Wrap website it was actually very easy to put on.
Check out how to put on the Moby Wrap here:
There are different holds you can do with your Moby Wrap. My little one and I like the Hug Hold the best. This position is really great for those times when he falls asleep because his head can be supported by one of the shoulder pieces.
I find this wrap to be very comfortable. My little guy seems to be snug and comfy. He is currently 6 months old and about 19 pounds so carrying him in my arms gets very tiresome, very quickly. With the Moby Wrap, I can carry him for much longer, which he really enjoys. I feel like he is very secure and I don't have to adjust the wrap constantly. With the triple wrap feature of the Moby Wrap, he is fully supported so I can be hands free.
Now that my little guy is teething he's uncomfortable and fussy fairly often. Holding him close in the Moby Wrap is definitely soothing to him. Another wonderful feature of the Moby Wrap is that there isn't any fabric between you and the baby. This is especially great in those early months when skin to skin contact is so beneficial to both mom and baby.
I really like the full back support that the Moby Wrap provides. Unlike other carriers I've tried that have just used my shoulders to support the weight of the baby, I'm able to wear this for long periods of time and still feel great.
The only problem I could find with the Moby Wrap is that since it's so long the fabric can drag on the floor while putting it on. This may not be a big deal while at home, but if you're out and about you may not want your wrap touching the floor. Simply putting the wrap on before you leave the house would be a good solution to this problem.
I've heard other people complain that it takes them a long time to put their Moby on. Once you get the hang of it, it really doesn't take long at all. The wrap comes with a great instruction booklet and there are video demonstrations on the Moby Wrap website. I've included them below so you can see just how easy it is to put the wrap on.
