Original Moby Wrap

Be comfortable

The design of the Moby Wrap uses your entire back, as well as your shoulders, to carry the weight 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 and this web site with the latest news, tips and techniques. With the single stretch cotton and the width of the Moby Wrap, your baby is wrapped close and tight, ensuring a secure hold. Your baby s head can also be secured under the stretchy cotton fabric for added safety. You can finally have both hands free and know your baby is safe and secure.

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,and sound of your heartbeat within the cuddly confines of the Moby Wrap.

Preemie to 35 lbs.

The Moby Wrap is an optimal baby carrier for premature infants. Preemies are often prescribed to practice "kangaroo care" and this skin-to-skin practice used to increase birth weight can be easily achieved while wearing the Moby Wrap. The Moby Wrap is long enough to adapt to your growing baby. The fabric can hold up to 45 lbs, and most people feel comfortable carrying up to 35 lbs.

Soothes fussy babies

It is amazing how quickly a baby will settle down once wrapped in the Moby Wrap. Experts like Dr. Sears, stress the importance of holding your baby often and close. The Moby Wrap allows you to do this with ease. The style of the wrap insures your baby is uniquely close, while providing ultimate comfort and support. No more aching backs or tired arms! Now your baby can be kept close and happy for as long as he or she desires.

Versatile

There are many ways to wear your Moby Wrap. You can wear your baby facing you, facing the world, sideways or on your back. When not being used as a carrier, the Moby can be used as blanket, pillow or anything else that comes to mind.

Machine washable

The Moby Wrap is easy to clean. You can machine wash your Moby in cold water and tumble dry low. Slight shrinkage after washing may occur. Once you start wearing your Moby again, it will stretch out.

Good for small people or backaches Review by rth
Value
Quality
I like it because it is very ergonomic for a little person like me or my friends with back issues. For younger babies, I really like the stretchy version (I believe another company) because you can take a sleeping baby out without waking him/her.
My husband is large and was not a fan of the Moby because of the effort you have to put in to figure out the wraps and how tight/loose to make it, also that you can't just throw it on quickly in a pinch.

Like, not Love Review by Gina
Value
Quality
I will say that this is a well made product. As far as a big piece of fabric can be. The idea is well conceived, I just think that how much one likes this is a matter of personal preference.

I do like that is is very comfortable. My baby looks comfortable in it, I don't feel pinched or anything like that. I also like that when my baby was at the age where he didn't have prescribed naptimes, he would happily fall asleep in this.

I do not like that it is a bit cumbersome. Its just..a piece of fabric, so when it isn't on, you have to roll it up, fold it, up, etc. Its not small, either. I find it pretty easy to put on, I actually find taking it off a pain. That's the main reason I never wear it in public. This is an at-home wrap only for us. Also, when he does fall asleep in it...its hard to get him out of it without waking him up (like I can with a mei tai). I don't like that you can only wear it on the front, and I was very uncomfortable using it for cradle hold. We only use hug hold.

Now that my baby is bigger, we have graduated from our Moby. We have enough other options for at home now, that we don't really need it. Perhaps it'll make a comeback as the weather cool off though!

favorite wrap Review by Andrea

This is my favorite wrap style carrier. Yes, it can make you very hot but it's perfect for cooler weather and you and baby stay nice and cozy. It's super comfy, no rings to deal with and it porportions the wieght nicely. Plus, you can wear your little one is a lot of different positions and styles.

Wish I had done this with my first baby! Review by Alesha
Value
Quality
It looked complicated and hot, so I never even tried it. Now, with twins, I am all about the Moby! It's not hard to remember how to wrap after the first time. And that's with twin brain! Around, cross back, tuck & cross front, cross around waist till it fits! Baby goes against you without any wrap in between. You won't be disappointed, and if you are, talk to someone who's wearing it and they will show you what you are doing wrong. (Posted on 8/3/2011)

I love my moby wrap. I have a 5 month old and I carry him everywhere I go in the wrap. It is very supportive and will not hurt your back. I also get alot of comments about it as well. My son almost always falls fast asleep when in the moby wrap. (Posted on 5/26/2011)
We love our Moby! Review by Amanda
Value
Quality
I cannot more highly recommend this wrap. It's true that it takes a little practice, but once you've done it a few times it's actually pretty easy. I don't know what I would do without my Moby, especially when my little one was a newborn. It gives them the snug feeling they've been craving, and still allows for skin-to-skin contact. I had a very colicky newborn, and the first time I put him in the Moby, he got an expression on his face that clearly said, "*Gasp! I'm back inside!" Then his eyes glazed over, and he was asleep within minutes. The Moby may be a little more difficult for the caregiver, but it definitely strikes me as the best wrap for babies.

Other plusses: Since the fabric is a wide panel, it takes a lot of the pressure off of the holder's back. It's all cloth, no buckles or straps. It holds the baby snugly and allows for skin-to-skin contact--no fabric gets between the baby and the holder. It can also help support breastfeeding and infant massage. In general, it is an excellent way to practice kangaroo care.

It might be worth it to have another carrier in addition to the Moby, but I would definitely have one on hand--especially for newborns.

Great in the early months Review by Melissa
Value
Quality
I Love the Moby Wrap! It is a very comfortable way to wear your baby. It does take a little practice learning how to wrap it correctly, but if you watch the videos it takes no time to learn. The ONLY thing I didn't like about it was that the heavier my daughter got I'd have to re-tighten it constantly. (Posted on 3/6/2011)
SANITY SAVER! Review by Jamie O.
Value
Quality
I absolutely LOVED wearing my youngest in the Moby Wrap shortly after she was born. The biggest downfall to the Moby Wrap is the learning curve, same can be said from all wraps. A few times of wrapping though and I had it down.

My daughter loved the Moby Wrap too and even at almost two I wear her in it occasionally without any issues. I am of small build (100lbs and 5'2'') and find that the Moby Wrap is very versatile, I can use it, Daddy (about 100lbs more and several inches taller) can use the same one. Big sister has even worn her in the Moby Wrap. It does a great job of weight distribution, using the entire core to support the child's weight, which is very important to me because I have such a small build.

sweaty Jedi Review by Jane
Value
Quality
I wanted to love the Moby Wrap, but it is too much fabric for my 5'4" frame. In the summer I looked like a sweaty, Jedi knight and I didn't feel that my baby (born in August) was very comfortable. I anxiously awaited cooler months, but he still didn't care for it in October/November. We used a Bjorn instead, which was easy and allowed more freedom of movement for both of us. I did receive instruction on tying from a Moby die-hard and felt that I had a good grasp of the complicated procedure. The fabric is soft and sturdy. (Posted on 2/7/2011)
Awesome Review by Amber

I got my moby before my son was born. I thought it would be too hot but the times I tried it I was 8+ months pregnant in the summer heat. He was born in October and it was great for keeping him warm on chilly days and I didn't get to hot as long as I dressed for cooler weather! (Posted on 1/26/2011)

I own the moby wrap in orange and I love the way it feels! It is quite complicated to master at first and I still struggle occasionally with it, but I never have an achy back. It is such a great value. (Posted on 1/11/2011)

The Moby does look intimidating at first, but it is great! Once you get the hang of putting it on and how you and your baby are most comfortable with it, it's pretty easy. My baby loves this wrap and it is really comfortable to wear! (Posted on 12/22/2010)
Good positioning is important Review by Green mom

Great product. I like the fact that there is no plastic ring. It offers more possibilities. Just make sure to position the baby so she breathes well. (Posted on 12/16/2010)

Requires initial practice Review by LaMo Mama
Quality
Value
No part of parenting came without a steep learning curve for me. The Moby was the same, I practiced tying it, untying it, putting a teddy bear in/out. After mastering the tying and different hold options, it takes maybe 1 minute longer than putting on my Bjorn. Pros - amazing value for the price, Baby seems comfortable and will fall asleep, flexible option as Baby has grown (now 6 months), goes in the washer and dryer with our laundry. Cons - seems too warm to wear on hot days, I have to stand near a bed or chair to put it on so as not to drag the ends on the ground. (Posted on 8/5/2010)
Good wrap Review by Danielle

I got this before my son was born. It was great for the first year now I just feel like he kinda sags in it at 24 pounds. I bought an ergo in it's place, I will use it again for our next baby. FYI I live in Texas and all this fabric (6yards) gets REALLY hot! (Posted on 6/10/2010)
A lifesaver in the early months! Review by Ashley
Quality
Value
I loved our Moby wrap in the early months! Once my daughter reached 6 months/ 16 lb or so, the stretchy material made it harder to get a good fit. I found that she sagged, and since I have a petite frame, I ended up discontinuing use. I loved the stretchy material because of the softness and this wrap was just perfect for my tiny newborn. I would get another Moby in a woven material in a heartbeat for after 6 months. (Posted on 6/8/2010)
Ok for a newborn Review by Osiris

I got a moby prior to my baby being born thinking it would last us thru all of our babywearing years but sadly it did not.. it was a very nice wrap for a newborn (my lil one was born at 9.9lbs) once she hit 11ish pounds it started sagging she was only like 3 months or so .. so it didnt last us long at all but it is a good wrap for a newborn..

Great wrap! Review by Danielle

I really like this wrap. I purchased it before my son was born. And it's great. I live how secure it feels and my son now 13 months old still loves it. It's held up great and is so comfortable. The only thing I don't like is it's 6 yards of fabric so when putting it on I always drop it on the ground. I would buy again. (Posted on 6/2/2010)
