The moby wrap – ^^Thats Jack and his not so crunchy dad!

What is it?

A fabric wrap used to carry an infant on ones person.

Features:

One solid piece
One size fits most (there is a special order extra long available though)
Various colors, prints, UV and organic options available
Machine washable
Can be worn by males or females

Summary:

Our Moby wrap was a valuable item when my son was first born. I would wrap him very tightly from birth and walk with him outside. It seemed to give him a sense of security and comfort. His father or I would walk him behind our apartment buildings under tall pine trees. Needles and cones were strewn all about and the smell of pine was in the air. No doubt about it, our son loved the outdoors and nothing else would satisfy him.

(You see Jack was born angry, he had colic from day one. He would scream all hours of the day and night. This went on for 2 solid months until it vanished suddenly as if it had never happened at all. )

I don’t know what we would’ve done without the Moby wrap? Maybe zipped him up inside a sweater against us? Who knows. But the Moby provided a comfortable way to carry our infant close to our bodies.

The long piece of fabric was bothersome to tie and took too much time. Especially when your baby is crying frantically but the one solid piece is supposed to be a selling point as there are no buckles or rings to break or cause discomfort for the wearer.

My husband enjoyed wearing our son in the Moby and being able to have close intimate contact with him the days following birth.

I also used the Moby to get skin to skin contact by wearing Jack in a diaper directly against my bare chest. This allowed him to nurse freely and boost my milk supply.

Jack did happen to pee all over the Moby and I can tell you how nice it was to be able to put it right into the washing machine to clean it.

As Jack approached the 2 month mark he started to fight being worn in this particular carrier. It no longer seemed to comfort him but rather aggravate him greatly. We discontinued its use at that time.

Moby wraps retail $47.95-62.95

Because of the price and the fact that we were only able to use this product for 2 months I give it 3.5/5

  1. I liked the moby wrap for a while, but then it got too hot to wear! Looking forward to using it in the cooler months with baby #2 though!

  2. I loved the moby wrap with Asher. I still use it to carry him around since he doesn’t like the other carriers that we have ie. snugli, baby bjorn, and a baby backpack (not sure of the maker). Asher is 32 inches tall and 27 lbs.
