  1. Skeptical at first, now I'm sold Review by Kristen
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I looked at these before baby came along, but I thought they were a bit ridiculous. Well I learned my lesson. After baby came I discovered just how much he needs to be held during all hours of the day, and if I was ever going to manage to do anything (including eat or nap myself), I would have to figure something out. I tried a sling, but I found that after an extended period I became uncomfortable with it pulling on only one shoulder (though baby was cozy). I finally gave in and tried a wrap style carrier. I started out by 'making' my own - fortunately I had a long piece of t-shirt material in my sewing bin. It quickly became clear that he loved it, but my home-made attempts wouldn't really cut it. I considered getting better fabric from the shop, but realized by the time I did that I was just as well of buying a proper one.

    And I am so glad I did! The fabric is perfect - sturdy but just enough stretch. It is finished nicely on the edges, and tapered to make it easy to tie. It is comfortable for me, hugging my back and shoulders beautifully. And baby loves it, falling asleep tucked in with mommy. It is a little hot for me on the hottest days of summer, but baby doesn't seem to mind. It is also great for keeping him upright after eating because he sometimes has trouble with gas and this gets all the bubbles out as I move around. It is easy to take places, can be rolled up in a bag no problem. And when he's in it I can move around, sit down, even lie down for a nap, and baby is content. This will get a lot of use, and I will certainly recommend it to any new or expecting moms I meet. (Posted on 7/13/10)

  2. An excellent option for carrying babies from newborn to about three or four months Review by Rebecca
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    I bought the Moby Wrap for my second child and could not have been happier. My daughter loved being carried in the Moby Wrap, and she happily took her naps in it as well. My baby was a bit colicky, and being wrapped up close to me calmed her. Most significant for me, perhaps, was the fact that I could nurse her in it while sitting or even while walking. This is especially helpful when you have another child to look after. When my daughter was small (under three months), I opted for the Moby Wrap over a number of other carriers I had, including the baby bjorn, the Ergo, and the Hotsling. By the time she got to be about three or four months, I found that my back began to hurt if I carried her for too long, and I switched to the Ergo carrier. It is possible to use the Moby Wrap for bigger children by strapping them to your back, but this always seemed a little cumbersome to me.

    The Moby Wrap does take a little time to get used to, but I found that after a couple of weeks, I could put it on very quickly. Generally, I think that there are few better carrying options for an infant.

    A message from the bynature.ca family:

    For safety reasons, we do not recommend using a stretchy wrap carrier for back-carrying. (Posted on 7/2/10)

  3. Great newborn wrap Review by CINDY
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    The Moby Wrap is a soft wrap that is excellent for newborns. It has a bit of a learning curve but is a great wrap to learn on. At first it might feel awkward but before you know it, you'll be wrapping tightly and comfortably in mere minutes.

    However the con is definitely for people with big babies like me. Since mine have all been 9-10 lbs, I found the stretch in the fabric to make me feel baby's weight sooner than a wrap without stretch. It is great until about 18 lbs (which for me is just a few months), and then I tend to move onto another babywearing tool like a woven wrap. But for some people with smaller or slower gaining babies, 18 lbs could easily last a long long time comfortably! (Posted on 1/3/11)

  4. Not ideal if you're short on time Review by Shelagh
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    I love the quality and versatility of the Moby wrap, and if you take the time to practice it's not that hard to get used to putting it on. What it IS, unfortunately, is time consuming, and when your baby is shrieking sometimes you don't want to stand around for several minutes putting on your baby carrier. Mine got much less use than I thought it would because of that. Either my fussy baby would already be crying and I couldn't take the time to get the wrap on, or I'd have put it on to go somewhere and the baby would decide he didn't want to be carried like that and I'd have wasted the time.

    For a more relaxed baby or one who loves to be carried/held close I think it would be great, but it didn't work out for us as well as I'd hoped.

    The other con the Moby has is that because it's so long it's difficult to put on outside without dragging the ends on the ground and getting them dirty. (Posted on 6/30/10)

  5. Most comfortable wrap I've tried Review by Nicole
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I bought myself one of these wraps for my third baby and love it. I especially liked it when he was a newborn because he snuggled into it really well and I didn't have to worry about his head flopping around. Every time we went for a walk he would just fall asleep. Now that he's a little older I wrap him facing out (which uses the same wrapping technique) and he really likes that too. The Moby Wrap really spreads the weight across the shoulders and back so it's pretty easy on your body.

    All the Moby Wrap comes with is an instruction booklet so I found it a little confusing to figure out, but once I had the main wrap technique down that's all I needed to learn. I also don't like how much fabric it is, I'm not a very big person so it wraps and wraps around me, plus if I try to put it on outside the ends always drag on the ground.

    Overall though I do really like the Moby wrap, it is the most comfortable wrap by far. (Posted on 7/5/10)

  6. Perfect for the early days Review by Nikki
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I loved my Moby when my daughter was under 10 lbs or so. She was so cozy, all snuggled up on my chest. I found the stretchy wrap to be the perfect introduction to wraps because you can "pop" baby in and out, unlike woven wraps - it makes the wrapping process a little less daunting.

    I'm expecting #2 and can't wait to snuggle the little one in my Moby again.

    Another commenter mentioned that the ends drag on the ground when you're getting the wrap on. I found it easier to tie the wrap on before I left the house, even under my coat in the winter, and then just "pop" baby in when we got where we were going. Voila - no muddy ends!

    One caveat: In my opinion it's not safe to wear a baby on your back in a stretchy wrap, no matter what the Moby instructions say. It's just too unstable. If you want to do a back carry, I recommend a woven wrap. And lots of practice with a spotter or over a soft couch or bed! (Posted on 1/4/11)

  7. We only got a few weeks out of it, but it was good for those few weeks Review by Michelle
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    We tried a Moby wrap first, and initially, it worked well. It does take a while to get the hang of the wrap, but it wasn't too steep a learning curve. It kept my baby high enough so that my c-section scar wasn't bothered, which was nice, especially early on.

    However, I had a big kid (almost 10 lbs at birth, and he gained fast) so by 2 months, this was getting harder to use - it needed constant adjusting, usually just as the boy fell asleep, which would wake him up. I think it's just the nature of stretchy wraps, based on what I've heard from others. (Posted on 1/4/11)

  8. Ok, but not for me! Review by Momtolila
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    My baby liked the Moby wrap for the first few weeks...at first she seemed very comfy in there, and she has had a few great naps in it. Unfortunately, I wasn't that crazy about it! Although I'd read many reviews that said it wasn't that hard to wrap, and I watched YouTube videos showing how...I found the wrapping to be a bit of a pain. It would be impossible to do anywhere that you didn't want the 15 feet of material to touch the floor, such as a parking lot, or shopping mall. I also found that it was difficult to wear over even a tank top! It was constantly bunching up and getting out of place on my shoulders. I could wear it with just a bra, but how useful is that for walks in the park? Also try to settle a squirmy baby in it! These days, now that she is much more awake, my baby only wants to be placed in it when she is already pretty sleepy and calm. I might try it again when she's a little older and I can have her legs hang out. Honestly though, its probably not worth all the hassle for me. (Posted on 5/16/12)
