My daughter received a Moby Wrap to review.
Babywearing may seem like a new trend, but it’s been practiced for centuries around the world. Simply put, wearing your baby allows you to have both hands free while holding your baby. That way you can bond while still getting the dishes done. As if that isn’t great by itself, studies have shown numerous benefits to babywearing, such as reduced colic, lowered stress levels, increases in breast milk production, and less crying.
The Moby Wrap is one of the most popular baby wraps on the market and it’s easy to see why. Made of 100% cotton, it’s soft, easy to care for, and comfortable (not to mention machine washable!). The real benefit of the Moby wrap over other carriers and slings is that it wraps around both shoulders and your back, keeping your baby extra secure and not putting too much strain on your shoulders. Additionally, it’s one size fits all – so Mom and Dad don’t need to buy separate wraps.
Moby Wrap holds babies from 8-35 pounds in a variety of positions. We chose the original wrap in a simple chocolate color, but it’s available in many different designs and fabrics. There are even Major League Baseball Moby Wraps!
It can seem a bit intimidating to use a Moby Wrap for babywearing at first, but it comes with a helpful instruction book with a step by step guide. If you’re like my husband and can’t follow directions, there are tons of great videos on their website and on YouTube that demonstrate the proper technique. My friends who’ve used one say that you have to practice a couple times to get it down before it becomes habit.
Our baby won’t be here until August, but we are definitely looking forward to carrying him in our new Moby Wrap.
Available online for $47.95 (for the Original) or at various stores – check the store locator to find a place near you.
