Mobywrap Review


I love to wear my babies and it was my clingy daughter that turned my desire to wear my babies when I was pregnant with her into the passion it is today. Add a huge baby and a bad back to this equation and that lead to my baby carrier collection that ranges from slings to structured carriers. Unfortunately, I didn’t discover wraps until my daughter was older, so I was excited to have the opportunity to review the mother of knit wraps: the Moby Wrap

Moby Wraps are soft, stretchy yet supportive (one-way stretch) and are available in a rainbow of colors, patterns, textiles and designs. If you haven’t checked out their website before, or haven’t visited in a while you will definitely want to pay them a visit as they have had a makeover! It is a lot easier to navigate, you can search by color or collection and it just looks a lot cuter. 

The biggest pro of a wrap is that it is adjustable and one sized so you can use it no matter how your weight or body changes and share it with other caregivers. For example, I probably weight 15-20 lbs. heavier 2 months after having my son compared to after I had my daughter and some sized slings I have are too tight; on the flip side, if your body changes in the other direction as you lose your baby weight it is not an issue with the Moby. Mom, dad, babysitters and other caregivers can easily share the same wrap when they are caring for baby and although I think that you will use it the most the first few months of your baby’s life, can safely hold up to 35+ lbs. Moby Wraps are easily machine washable and don’t have buckles to break or dig into you or baby, which are also pros compared to other styles of carriers. 

This same adjustability, or most specifically the length of the wrap is also the con, as it is a lot of fabric to maneuver if  you are outside, in the snow or rain or other situations where the ends may get soiled or wet while you are wearing it. My best advice if you are wearing it out and about, particularly where it might get dirty while putting it on, is the pre-wrap it while you are at home and just keep it on popping your little one in and out as needed. It is also helpful to put it on and leave it on when you are at home while they are newborns and you need to take them in and out of the wrap often. I have a friend who used to say that people always thought she was wearing a wrap around shirt of some sort when she left it on in between wearing her baby :-)

You will probably find that you will use a knit wrap like the Moby Wrap the most during the first 3-6 months of your baby’s life, but it is still a great wrap to grab for when they are older infants and a back carry will keep your toddler happy when the opportunity arises. I don’t find I get the support I need with a wrap like this for my really tall, heavy toddler (if you are a regular here at TCDR you will know she has been a 99th percentile kiddo since she was a few months old!), but if you don’t have a 30-40 lb. two-year-old like I have had, you may find that you can still wear it comfortably with your 1 or 2 year old.
