Expert Reviews


What experts liked

The supportive structure of this wrap helps increase the comfort for baby as it wraps and holds them from all sides. The slight stretchiness of the fabric provides a snug but not restrictive fit providing good 360 support to little ones helping them feel secure.
The Moby feels sturdy, regardless of whether you tie it into a hip, front or back carrier. There’s very little ‘give’ and we wore the wrap for several hours without any sign of sagging.
The Moby comes in one length that can be easily shared between people of widely ranging body types and can be machine washed and dried.
The good news is that a plus-size parent or a mom with an ample bosom won't have worry about getting this to fit around their bodies. It is machine washable.
The wrap can carry in a near-unlimited number of styles and wrap configurations, making a custom and comfortable fit for you and your baby's unique needs.
The cotton knit is soft and comfy, like a thick tee, and because there is so much fabric wrapped both you and your baby, you’ll both stay toasty.
The closeness and comfort that you get with a wrap is like no other, mainly because you are literally wrapping baby to your body so you move together as one unit.
Because the fabric is so long, it fits all body sizes, which is especially great if parents take turns using the wrap. It also means you can tie the wrap snugly for the best fit.
The Moby Wrap is 5,5 meters, meaning baby is often wrapped several times with one piece of material to keep the material from hanging on the ground..

What experts didn't like

This carrier is one of the more difficult options to figure out, and even once you do become familiar with the different wraps, it still takes more time and energy to put it on each time.
The lack of ‘give’ can be a bit of a downside too. Because there’s very little flex to the material, you have to achieve the desired tightness when you first tie the carrier to yourself, and it is very easy to make it too tight (or too loose).
Some may find its longer length and denser fabric cumbersome and too hot to wear.
Practically speaking, you're unlikely to use it once your baby is over 20-25 pounds since the fabric begins to stretch and sag a bit with time, which is the primary detractor for this wrap, at least in comparison to the Boba.
It takes a bit of practice to tie it correctly, but once you do, you’ll be in love.
The long fabric requires a bit of practice to wrap and wear correctly—this is not a product you can wear straight out of the box—so be patient and expect it to take some time.
Moby wrap gets a little hot during the summer months. The reason for this is due to the length of the material.

Overview

Who has two hands and needs way more help than that? A new parent, that’s who. Somewhere between midnight feedings, diaper duty, first words and baby playdates, you’re supposed to keep up with all of your pre-baby responsibilities — and find time for yourself. 

Spending every second getting to know your new family member would be ideal, but it’s not possible unless you have the right gear. Using a baby sling can help you continue to bond with your baby while you run errands, catch up on work or care for older children. 

Taking your baby along when you leave the house also exposes them to new people, conversations, smells and sounds. It expands your baby’s world and makes them an active participant in your outings. 

A standard baby sling is a long piece of cloth that you wrap around your body to hold your kiddo close. They’re usually made from breathable cottons and a touch of stretchy fabric, like spandex or elastane. Airy cotton maintains a comfortable temperature for parent and baby, while spandex provides effective yet gentle support. 

Many slings are “one size fits all,” but they stretch to accommodate parents of all shapes and sizes. They come in a range of lengths, and you wrap them across your back and around your shoulders a few times to evenly distribute your baby’s weight

Longer wraps are better for larger or taller adults, while shorter wraps create a perfect fit for petite parents. You can also wrap a long sling over itself several times for a toasty wrap on chilly days, or use the extra lengths to create other types of holds for your baby. Most slings hold your baby facing forward or towards you, but some can create other holds, like a horizontal swing across your chest.
