The Moby Wrap is one, super-long (18’ to be exact) piece of stretchy jersey that wraps around you and your baby and encourages the skin-to-skin contact preemies and newborns crave. Little ones cuddle into the comfy pocket created by wrapping the fabric over the wearer’s shoulders and waist. There’s plenty of material to keep the wrap as secure for bigger babies as it is for newborns. But the key advantage of the Moby Wrap is that it adapts to differing body frames so any caregiver can comfortably use it. Also unlike ring slings, which go across one shoulder, the Moby Wrap your back and shoulders, to carry the weight of your baby.
Plan on getting lots of practice (and watching videos) to nail down the technique of putting this on, but eventually, it comes naturally. Also, because the fabric is so long, the ends drag on the ground in the process of tying it on.
This version of the Moby is made from a lightweight fabric that blends cotton and viscose fibers from bamboo and cotton for ideal breathability in all seasons. Because of the softer fabric, this wrap is a little more expensive than the original.
