Moby Wrap: Comfy For Mom and Baby!
Before I was a mom I would admire parents who wore their babies while out running errands and visiting with friends. In fact, I remember being in a restaurant years ago and seeing a woman with her baby snuggled in a cotton fabric carrier. I watched her tie it and then place her baby in it. He looked so comfortable all wrapped up. At that time, I asked her what carrier she was using and it was a Moby Wrap. After doing some research, I decided that when I had a baby of my own the Moby Wrap would be my carrier of choice. So here I am, a few years later with a baby of my own and a Moby Wrap as a necessity in my daily life.
Moby Wrap Inc. was incorporated in 2003 by parents who saw the need for a more comfortable, secure and versatile way to carry their infants while performing their daily activities. They are made from very soft, 100% breathable, soft cotton fabric (no synthetic fibers are used).
Today’s parents are aware of the physiological, psychological and emotional benefits of baby wearing. One of the things I love about the wrap is the ability to have skin-to-skin contact with my son, which was for me was very important as he was a preemie.
There are no buckles, snaps or other fasteners, making wearing the Moby simple and convenient. One of my girlfriends asked if it’s difficult to tie the wrap and my answer is very simply “No”. The majority of the holds use the Basic Wrapping instructions and take less than a minute to tie. The wrap comes with an easy to use detailed instruction manual of all the various holds and includes pictures. For those people who may still be unsure about how to tie the wrap they can go online to see instructions and video on how to tie the various holds.
I love the variety of holds that are available when using this wrap; from the lotus hold, kangaroo hold, breastfeeding hold and twin cradle hold to my favorite Newborn Hug Hold.
*Thank you to Moby Wrap for sending me this carrier to review*
