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
