Moby Wrap

So I had to show off my awesome baby carrier. Don't pay attention to my hideous appearance, but rather look how snug and cute my baby looks in the amazing wrap. With Jordan I had a few different carriers, but they were almost impossible to comfortably hold a newborn because they didn't hold the head. So even though I was wearing a carrier to be able to have my hands free I would still have to hold his head so it wouldn't flop about. This one is just a long piece of fabric that you wrap and tie around your body. It is wonderfully comfortable for me and the baby. I can just tuck Sam's little head in fabric and he sleeps while I do chores, shop, or go for walks. The best part is it doesn't hurt my back or hips like the different carriers I have used. Also, you can wrap it a dozen or so different ways so you can use it for a newborn or a one year old. I love it because Sam is so cuddly that he hates to be put down, so I can hold him and do other things as well. I don't know how I would go shopping without this thing...shopping carts weren't designed to hold a toddler and newborn baby AND groceries.

Here is Moby Wrap's website, but I have a friend who made hers and it works just the same for a lot less money!

YEA for Moby Wraps! YEA for happy, comfortable moms! YEA for totally cozy, zonked out little babies! They really are the most amazing things EVER! BTW...I'm starting a little baby wrap business, so if any of your friends decide they need one (which every new mom does!) just let me know. Things are still in the works but check out wwww.babysnugglebug.blogspot.com

So glad you LOVE it!

I may need to see yours to try and make it. And I may have my mom make it. ;)

Amen, sista! We LOVE our Moby. It' seriously the only reason I'm still (somewhat) sane.

Hideous appearance whatever! You couldn't look hideous if you tried. I was actually thinking the picture was quite adorable!
