Product Description

Be Comfortable-The design of the Moby Wrap uses your entire back, as well as your shoulders, to carry the wight 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. It is easy to adjust the fit of your Moby Wrap by varying how tightly you wrap yourself and your baby. Be Secure-The Moby Wrap comes with an easy to follow instructional guide. With the single stretch cotton and the width of the Moby Wrap, your baby is wrapped close and tight, insuring a secure hold. Your baby's head can also be secured under the stretchy cotton fabric for added safety. Be Uniquely Close to Your Baby-There is not a lot of extra material or bulky padding between you and your baby. Your baby can hear your heartbeat and finds comfort in the warmth of your body, along with the cuddly confines of the Moby Wrap. Preemie to 35 lbs.-The Moby Wrap is long enough to adapt to your growing baby. The fabric measures 5.5 meters in length and can hold up to 45 lbs, and most people feel comfortable carrying up to 35 lbs. Versatile-There are many ways to wear your Moby Wrap. You can wear baby facing you, facing the world, sideways, or on your back. When not being used as a carrier, the Moby can be used as a blanket, pillow, or anything else that comes to mind.

Customer Reviews:

  • Not very practical...
    I really wanted to like this product. Maybe I didn't try it enough or give it enough effort, but it was very frustrating to figure out how to tie it and even when I got it I didn't like it.

    I tried to use this on a vacation where we did a lot of walking. I am 5'2 and it was just way to much fabric, and in the heat of florida it was a torture to wear. I ended up using a stroller 90% of the time and I really didn't want to.

    A few months later when my son went through a phase where he didn't want to be put down, I tried using this again around the house and It just wasn't secure. My son is a pretty big baby and it just was not comfortable. ...more info
  • Love it!
    I was a little nervous about using it when my daughter was a newborn, but now I use it daily - she's in it for hours and loves it - she's 10 weeks old. When she was smaller, I used the kangaroo carry according to the instructions and it was a lifesaver when she was really fussy from her reflux, before we found it was reflux. Now, I can pop her in (hug hold) and do housework or whatever I want and she falls asleep. When she wakes to eat, I just shift her around and she can have her bottle, and is already in position to burp.

    I've had some fairly serious back injuries, and the reviews made me chose the Moby Wrap - It's great for bad backs. I can adjust the knot (I knot in back) so that I get good lumbar support, and spreading it good on the shoulders really takes the strain off. I do find it gives me better posture too.

    Totally recommend!...more info
  • Great in Theory, Not Easy For Some
    I'm one of those moms who will try anythng if it makes my baby happy.
    The Moby appears to be the geatest thing since sliced bread.
    I've seen the Moby in use with other moms and always admired how close and secure BOTH mom and baby looked so now 8 months pregnant I ordered one.

    First thought: Oh my gosh is this thing 30 feet long?

    Then I attempted to do the basic wrap...mind you I am 8 months pregnant but I doubt the belly interfered all that much. This is long, dragging on the floor and I'm not one to be so talented at wrapping and tying knots behind my own back. Not to mention while my post partumness is being shown to the world because the Moby is hiking my shirt up all around me. No thanks.

    I've just now made my 2nd attempt at the basic 8 step wrap in front of a mirror-and still, I'm able to do the wrap but it's ridiculously complicated, moves my clothes in all the wrong places and well, it even looks pretty ridiculous.
    I cannot fathom doing this with a squirmy and/or upset baby when my arms will comfort him just fine. Of course I could enlist my 5 and 8 year olds to help tie us up-but nah we will pass.

    We wanted this because we're an expat family in Tokyo and it's very difficult to take strollers on trains when we travel-we get packed in like sardines and people are not exactly nice about kids in strollers. Now imagine us attempting to put this thing on amidst crowds of thousands? I also do not forsee it being a quick and convenient process to jaunt into a shop quickly with baby happy and secure. Nice idea Moby.

    We're keeping it as I hope to be able to at least wrap up my bigger, stronger husband and the new baby but for me I will have to find something with a bit more structure that's easier for independent use. ...more info
  • Good product
    I would recommend this product. My 3 month old did not like the Ergo carrier and loves the Moby wrap. Surprisingly, I find the Moby much more simpler to use than the Ergo. With the Moby I just wrap and tie one knot vs having to use the Ergo infant adaptor, snap all the buckles(back/sides), adjust the straps, and use the security loops, etc. Lastly the Moby breaths better, I found that we tended to overheat with the Ergo.

    The material is a long piece of cloth and relatively easy to wrap. I would recommend looking at YouTube to get a visual of the instructions on how to wrap it.

    If you're worried about wrapping this long piece of cloth in public or parking lot, I would recommend wrapping it at home, so that you'll have to insert the baby when you get your destination.

    I've worn the Moby when my baby is still in the stroller and have gotten comments on my stylish wrap (folks not realizing that it's a carrier). I chose the black color for it's versatility and have found that it's easy to match any outfit....more info
  • Moby Wrap for Newborn
    I simply love this wrap. I have never tried one before, but the baby carriers I purchased in the past strained my back. I was willing to try everything because I like to antique shop and strollers don't always fit down the slim aisles. I used this for the first time at a ball game and was pleasantly surprised how simply and discreetly I could nurse my newborn. It was very simple to put on (we had fun the first time trying to figure it out), but after about 10 minutes, I felt like a pro. I take it everywhere I go now and just stuff my kid inside and I'm ready to shop!...more info
  • best carrier i've tried (i've tried quite a few)
    This is by far the best carrier I've tried and I've tried a few. Since the birth of my 1st child 21 months ago I have become somewhat obsessed with babywearing. i started off with an infantino eurorider which is made like a bjorn (except without the nice back support). This worked for the majority of my childs infancy but got uncomfortable after a while (my child preferrred to sleep upright due to acid reflux and took all of her naps attached to me for her 1st year). Than i discovered the Ergo(which i also highly recommend, especially for a back carrier-its the best). I have also tried the snugli by-my-side and the snugli front and back carrier- I don't recommend these due to the fact that they hang baby by the crotch, which, after a year of carrying my child this way in the eurorider, I learned this isn't good for baby's spine. I have 2 Hotslings, one stretchy and one non-stretchy. I can't say how these are because I didn't get them until my 2nd child was born and she doesn't like the cradle position but isn't big enough yet to be held sitting up in a sling. I got my Moby wrap about 2 weeks ago and I cannot say enough good things about it. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!
    Here's why:
    1) while it looks intimidatingly long when you first open it up, its actually EASY to put on after a few tries. after you wear your baby in it a few times you learn how tight to tie it for yours and baby's preferences
    2) because all it is is fabric (high quality, soft but strong cotton)it is totally comfortable for parent and baby. you can customize how you wear it every time you put it on, and I don't just mean which hold you choose to use. I use the hug hold with my baby every time but I can change it depending on her mood and what she's doing. If she's awake and alert I keep her head uncovered but if she's asleep or about to fall asleep i tuck her head in one the shoulder pieces. tucking her head is also useful for when i need to bend down, say to change my older child's diaper or pick things up off the floor so her head doesn't fall back (no head control yet-she's only 5 weeks. sometimes i let her legs dangle free but I can also pull the middle logo section down to cover her legs and feet if I think they might be cold or to give a more swaddled feeling. also, you can chose how high up you want baby to be on your chest- tie tighter to have baby high, looser to have baby lower.
    3) this wrap is comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time, day after day. I've been doing this since I got it 2 weeks ago and my back feels fine.
    4)most importantly- my baby loves it. she looks so calm and content when I put her in. It helps her fall asleep quickly and stay asleep for a long time. this allows me to get things done around the house and care for/play with my toddler while my baby is SECURELY tied to me.
    There are very few things I do around my house that I can't do while wearing baby- take a shower(duh), give my toddler a bath, and reach into the washer to get clothes out( it would crush the baby- this is true for all carriers used in the front)
    The only thing I don't like about this carrier is that it would be difficult to put on while out in public due to the ends touching the floor/ground, as other parents have mentioned.
    I think this is as perfect as a baby carrier can come. Don't be afraid to try it because of its length- its really no big deal. the instruction booklet it comes with makes it very easy to put on correctly. ...more info
  • Happy Mommy
    I purchased this for my daughter who is having her second baby. I was having trouble finding this product in the stores so I was delighted to find it so readily available here. There are lots of slings to choose from but this one seems to suit my daughter for it's security for the baby and ease of use. I will recommed this product to other grandmothers....more info
