Moby wrap is AMAZING!  I won’t use another style since finding this one.  It’s so comfortable and it’s actually easier to put on, once you’ve tried it. 

My DH could almost wear it (it would need to be a bit bigger for him), but I got him into it long enough to say how comfortable it was.

I felt like DS was secure even after moving around quite a bit… walking to mail box, doing laundry, etc.

He would fall asleep almost immediately.  Just a great, great product and it held him up so there was no worry about his breathing.  His head was at a spot where I could easily see that his airways weren’t constricted, basically resting his ear over my heart.  I sound like a spokesperson; I swear I’m not!  You can adjust the fabric to where it needs to be for your babies posistion.  And it washes really well without losing strength.

I always struggled to get DS out of the old style carriers without waking him up, but with Moby, you untie it and then you can lay it down with the baby, like a blanket, if need be. 

Obviously, I love it! 🙂

I’ve looked into getting a Moby, atleast while baby is itty bitty. The only downside I’ve heard is that they can get pretty hot since there’s so much fabric.

I’ve also looked into Mei Tai once baby can sit up.. had a lady that REALLY liked hers and it’s not nearly as bulky as the Moby.

@runsyellowlites  I hadn’t heard of Mei Tai… looks similar to Moby.  I don’t remember DS getting too warm or sweaty, which is easy to do with body heat.  I’m going to check out the Mei Tai site.  Thanks! 🙂

@jjmomma I heard it was momma that was getting hot. Something very likely for me bc since dealing with my thyroid years ago I swear when it’s like 50 degrees. Lol

I used the Moby and we both loved it. It was very easy to tie (youtube for videos!) and I used it for forward facing and inward facing. The only downside is that you can’t use stretchy wraps for a abck carrier so once baby is 20+ lbs it’s just not comfortable. While they’re small it’s fantastic and she LOVED going in it. I used it mostly for long mall trips and hiking. After an hour or two sometimes it needed to be rewrapped but more for comfort, not for security.

I used a LoveyDud wrap which is basically a Moby.  Loved it!  DH used it too.

I love my mei tai.  I didn’t get it till DS was 2, but wish I’d gotten it much earlier.  Easy to put on/take off and holds up to 45lbs.  DS is 3 now (today!!!) and I still use it for long walks/amusement parks/airports (i.e. places where I need to be able to carry him long distance or ensure he won’t break away from me) since I don’t like the added bulk of a stroller.  Ebay has some great deals.

The Moby was the only one I liked.

I was able to use the LoveyDuds to BF while wrapped.  Fricken awesome.  There’s a Youtube video out there that shows you how, I just remember being so happy that I could use my hands while BFing!  Especially in the beginning when it seemed like 50% of my day was spent BFing.

I used Maya Wrap and Moby. Maya wrap was around 1997 so I don’t know if it is still around LOL. I even had a water one I could wear in the pool with my little man (who is now 12!!). I use the Moby with the twins who are now 5 and I bought it in the light fabric so it was not so hot.
