Just in today! A rainbow of Moby Wraps! This is an increasingly popular infant carrier choice, and no wonder! Most of them are only $39.95. They’re amazingly soft. They can hold baby to you in any position you prefer- face in or out, carry twins, baby on your back or front or hip. Nursing is easy, and covering baby as much as you need for nursing or feeding is as simple as pulling the wrap up, just like a blanket. There are no buckles or straps or fasteners. You do have to learn to tie it around yourself but the photo instructions are fabulous so that soon becomes easy, and after it’s on you, you just place baby inside and go! The lightweight stretch fabric is ideal even in warm weather, and 4 colors are made of UV-protection fabric for summer sun. the Moby Wrap is essential for baby’s first 6 months or even first year, but honestly, the day will come when you’ll probably want a more supportive, structured carrier, like the Beco. But for $39, the price is right , to get you through that first year comfortably and free to go out and about with your infant. In my town, I see babies riding cozy in their moby wraps all around the neighborhood, at grocery stores and coffee shops and at pickup time for the preschool and elementary schools. I have seen moms at the airport, traveling with baby alseep in the wrap, which is all fabric, by the way, with nothing metal to set off airport security.
Look below to see on youTube a great Moby Wrap demonstration with a baby in a front carry. Clear video, clear sound, good tips, I just had to pass it along for you.
The Moby is an excellent carrier choice for baby’s first year, it’s the sort of thing moms give other moms at their baby shower while speaking of as a lifesaver, an essential, something they used every day- it is so soft and stretchy, babies just love to be swaddled inside it and soothed by your walking movements. Also, a wrap offers so much flexibility about positioning and size, it works for everybody. Moby is just $39, so it’s a really affordable carrier for a newborn and the months that follow, and then most families graduate to a soft structured carrier -something with support on both shoulders and the hips, something for front and backpack style carry positions to take you through the toddler years.
