Excerpt: From the Manufacturer Be comfortable, the design of Moby Wrap for it uses your entire back, as well as your shoulders, to carry the weight of your baby. Unlike other carriers, which have narrow straps or go across one shoulder, the Moby Wrap is a wide piece of fabric that is wrapped over both shoulders. It is amazingly comfortable and easy to wear. There are no buckles, snaps or other fasteners.
Excerpt: Before I had my first child I had used other baby carriers with the straps. My back and shoulders would be aching after only a short period of time. I knew it wouldn't be the right carrier for me and my child.

Excerpt: I love my Moby wrap! When Josiah was a newborn (at 5 lb 6 oz), I could put him in it and do all the things I needed to get done. He would snuggle up next to me and fall asleep. The Moby Wrap supported his head and was so comfortable for me to wear. Now that he's put on some weight, he likes to face outward and help me work especially when we're outside.
Excerpt: A: There are lots of different carriers on the market today: front packs, slings, wrap arounds, and more. The big difference between is that the wrap uses both shoulders, as well as your back, to carry the weight of your baby. Most front packs have narrow straps, buckles, or rings, which often cause discomfort. There are several wrap-around carriers available with a variety of special features: stretchy vs. non-stretch, cotton vs. cotton-lycra blend, solids vs.
Excerpt: As a sling newbie, i was loaned one of these by a friend who suggested it would a good one to start with, and it was fantastic. Ive since bought my own and am using it with my 7 week old and we both love it. In the evenings when she finds it hard to settle if we cant sit and snuggle her up, I put her in the moby and she's asleep in minutes - while I'm getting on with the cooking and cleaning!
Excerpt: This is a well made, comfortable sling that I often recommend to other parents of new babies. The fabric is soft and perfect for tiny little ones. It does take time to learn how to tie it well and to able to tweak and adjust it for maximum comfort. But it is well worth the time spent learning! I found it much more comfortable than a buckled carrier and I used my Moby almost daily until my son was about 8 months old. I found it utterly indispensable.
Excerpt: I bought a Moby wrap when I was pregnant with my son. We chose 'forest green' as a colour that my husband would be happy wearing too, and wow did it get a lot of use! I loved how putting it on *before* putting the baby in gave me time to make sure that it was secure and tied tightly. I could leave it on all day and pop my baby in and out for feeds and nappy changes, and even use it for a little privacy when breastfeeding, if needed.
