|First day home from the NICU – 1 month old|
Hands down my absolute favorite baby product for A.C. when he was a newborn was my Moby Wrap – Words cannot explain my love for this carrier!
Some people are daunted by the task of tying the wrap, but after reading the instructions, watching a “how to” video on YouTube and doing a couple of practice ties we were ready to go. I carried A.C. while I ate, did dishes, laundry and all of the other household chores. A.C. loved to be carried in the Moby Wrap, if he was fussy I would put him in it and he would calm down within a minute and be asleep normally within 5 minutes.
I have even used it at night when A.C. was sick with a bad cold. He was so congested he was having trouble sleeping lying down, and was waking up every 30 min – My solution, wear him in the carrier and prop us up with pillows so we were at a 45 degree angle. No worries about him rolling off, and it allowed both of us to get some much needed rest.
|Still works like a charm – 9 months old|
One complaint I have read is people say that it is only for small babies, and it does not work as well once your baby is bigger. Not True!!! I can still use the Moby wrap with A.C. at 22 lbs with no issues at all. He still fits comfortably in the Moby Wrap and we have not had a problem with sagging. It can get a little warm after wearing A.C. for a while, so I normally just wear a tank top when using the Moby Wrap.
Happy Baby = Happy Family
