Moby Wrap Okay…Sometimes
It’s really hard deciding on a baby carrier because there are so many. But, one that I love is the Moby Wrap. The Moby Wrap is very swaddle-like and has an intimacy that both momma and baby can enjoy.
No, I’m not being paid to write-up a positive review, this is really my personal experience on shopping around for carriers. I find it genius that the snuggly carrier is nothing more than a long piece of cotton fabric. There isn’t anything special about it except that its creators have patented a way of wrapping the cloth to secure an infant.
A Tad Confusing At First
When I first saw the box at the store, I thought it was easier to use. I actually had to YouTube it and so it’s funny now I’ve made my own. Once you get it down though, it’s pretty simple. The downside is that if baby is fussing it’s a process putting it on and taking it off. At times, it can equally become an ordeal untangling baby out of the long winding cloth.
Dads May Dislike Feminine Design
Don’t get me wrong, when baby is brand new the wrap works wonders keeping your newborn close. But, as they get older the Moby Wrap can get a little tricky. I found it best to use it when my baby girl is in a good mood. My husband doesn’t care too much for the Moby Wrap. I know on their website you see dudes looking cool, but I have yet to run into a man wrapped in the long cloth.
Yes, my husband has used it.
It just doesn’t have a masculine appeal. Regardless, the Moby Wrap is meant to swaddle baby anyway and it does the trick.
Once you go through the trouble of learning how wrap the long fabric around you, the Moby Wrap becomes quite easy.
If you’re looking to walk to the park and get your toddler out to play, then my advice is to use the stroller. If you are trying to do laundry or cook and need two hands and baby wants to be close, the Moby Wrap works wonders.
