Your baby, being rather new to the world, has a short list of priorities. She’d like to be fed regularly, and even sooner than “ASAP”. She’d like to stay warm and dry. And most of all, she longs to be close to you (or another big warm person). Snuggling up close to a heartbeat keeps her happy, calm, and dozy.
The Moby Wrap gives your baby that essential snuggle time while keeping your hands free – your baby will love it, and you’ll love it too! Our reviewers on the Magic Beans website gave it universally high ratings. One typical comment: “When he wanted to be held all day, putting [my baby] in the Moby satisfied him and gave me the freedom to get things done!”
The Moby Wrap is very simple: it’s a 5.5 meter-long piece of 100% cotton that, wrapped properly, distributes the baby’s weight across your entire body – shoulders, back, and waist – to keep you comfortable, and holds your baby tightly to your chest. There are no buckles or straps to break or rub, and it’s easy to adjust. Because it’s so large, it fits a wide range of moms and dads, big and small, and it can be wrapped in several different ways to keep both parents and kids comfortable. Your baby can face you in the Moby, or face outward to see the world, look out sideways, or even be strapped to your back.
Moms report that while there’s a bit of a learning curve on wrapping a Moby Wrap, once you get it down, it’s like riding a bike – you never forget. And it’s worth learning, especially for dedicated babywearers, because it keeps the baby close while allowing you to go about your daily round with your hands free.
