Moby Wrap - Review and Giveaway


Esther loves to be held and snuggled! Here she is in the Moby Wrap on one of the first days I was home alone with all three girls. She stayed content in the wrap for quite some time and I had my hands free to take care of Lucy and Julia.


The Moby Wrap was at the top of my wish list for having a third baby. My babies all love to be held (what baby doesn't?), but I need to be able to care for my other two children at the same time. The folks at Moby Wrap were kind enough to send me a moss colored wrap for review. Keep reading - they are also offering one as a giveaway!

The wrap was easy enough to put on. I don't think I had it adjusted quite right, it was a bit loose in spots, but Esther still fit snugly and comfortably. There really is a lot of fabric to the wrap, almost too much for me, but it does allow for the weight of the baby to be evenly distributed and comfortable. The wrap has a tag right in the middle so its easy to find (you start wrapping from the middle point). The stretch of the fabric works well to keep Esther snug against me. I like that there are several different ways to wear the Moby Wrap. There are clear directions and photos on their website here. Another plus for the wrap is that its machine washable and can be dried. It comes with a little fabric bag, but I couldn't quite stuff it all back in there after washing it.

If you're new to babywearing, here is a great article from Dr Sears website on the benefits. Babywearing is a way of meeting your baby's need for closeness while going about your day. One tip that I've heard for babywearing when out and about is to put on the wrap at home and then just slip the baby into it once you arrive at the store or wherever you are going. The wrap is rather long to try and put on in a parking lot, but this way you are all set. I hate lugging around the infant car seat so I'm planning to use my Moby Wrap this way as much as I can.


Moby Wraps come in a variety of colors, prints, organic options, and more. To enter the giveaway, check out their website and let me know your favorite style and color of wrap. Leave a comment, being sure to include your email address. The winner will receive a solid color Moby Wrap of their choice. For an extra entry, leave another comment letting me know that you are a follower of my blog. If you blog about the giveaway including a link back to this post and to the Moby Wrap website you can gain a third entry! Leave a separate comment for each entry. There are three possible entries. I'll close the giveaway on Thursday, March 4 at midnight.

Be sure to stop back soon. I'm running a series of baby product reviews and giveaways this month that you won't want to miss!

Moby Wrap is also running some great giveaways on their facebook page, check it out!

  17. I just did a post on my Moby too. I recently started using it again with my 18 month old because the other carriers hurt my preggo belly. The Moby does take some time to learn how to adjust and wear properly. Try putting it on again and again and putting it on before leaving the house if you are going out with all three. Yay for Moby!
