    I found the Moby Baby Wrap worked well for me and my son. My son loved to be held an cuddled and this wrap gave me the ability to do so but with support and hands free. It was also great for breastfeeding especially when out and about. Small and lightweight so easy to throw in the diaper bag. Wrapping at first was a bit tricky for me to get the hang of but after practice it became second nature and was easy to use. Instructions were good and I found a video on their website to watch which made it easier! Available in a variety of nice colours, good quality material. I would recommend this baby wrap!

    This is light weight and easy to carry around in a diaper bag, it is easy to use once you have the hang of it, but I didn't find it felt very supportive while baby was in it. The material felt kind of flimsy and stretchy. It did it's job, but I would buy a different wrap knowing what I do now.

    I bought one of these with my daughter and didn't use it for both my sons and it made a huge difference since my daughter was more clingy and needed mommy more i could keep her snuggled close to me while i could still get things done around the house and still be very involved with my boys.. The price is expensive but the quality is even better and makes the price worth it. This product kept my baby close to me but feel very secured , it looks crazy when you take it out of the package and think how am i going to put my baby in this.. they give you simple instructions in different ways to baby wear

    This was great when my daughter was small. We used it until she was around 5 months old. She loved being in it. I liked taking her for walks in it over the stroller because when was small the stroller shook too much going over the gravel walking trails we liked to go on

    Some good...well, lots of good. Some bad.

    The Moby wrap takes some finessing - you have to practice the wrap techniques and even after doing it several times sometimes you've still gotta work on getting the adjustments right for comfort.

    I find after a while, despite a good wrap, my mid-back sometimes starts to ache.

    This is an AWESOME product for infants, and I suspect when the time comes for side-carrying support it'll be good again. For a wiggly, independent-minded 5 month old, however, it's proving an awkward way to carrying the kid around. I also find that by two or three months (depending on the size of your baby), to wear them tightly enough, they're jammed up under your chin and creating a blind spot ahead of you as well.

    It's pretty comfortable as far as there's nothing to dig into you, and when you get it right, the wrap fits like a second skin.

    Wrapping in public is difficult though because the wrap is sooooo long - the tail ends drag in places you don't want it to drag, so if you're going out for the day, you have to wrap before you leave and then hope you don't have to unwrap.

    Some people swear these are the way to go for breastfeeding while wearing baby, but I haven't managed to figure out how that could possibly be done.

    It's pretty good value for money, and I'm glad, as a first time Mom, that I have this experience in baby-wearing. If I could find some other ways to try affordably, I'd be interested in doing so.

    I have heard nothing but rave reviews from Moby Wrap users. The only critique is that the fabric does tend to stretch over time so you are constantly having to tighten and adjust.

    I have a bunch of different baby carriers and I have 2 favourites: Moby Baby Wrap is one of them. :D

    Price: It's pretty expensive in my opinion but I find all high-end baby carriers are. So compared to some carriers out there, this is average.

    Quality: Although this is made of stretchy material, the fabric still feels strong enough to support the weight of the baby. My kids were also wrapped in front of me, nice and snug. I never worried about them falling out as I moved around the house, doing different things.

    Look: I bought the one that has a silk panel in the front and it's beautiful. I love it and I always get compliments on it.

    Functionality: I save this one for last because I believe this is what makes/breaks this baby carrier. I'll be honest, when I first got this, I couldn't figure out how to use it and my son always felt way too loose in the wrap. Finally, I took a baby carrying class and the instructor showed me how to use it properly and since then, I never looked back. I carried my son in it until he was about 18lbs, when he was too heavy and the stretchy fabric was not strong enough to hold him anymore. Once I learned how to use it, I had a great experience with it, my son was a lot more comfortable and he really enjoyed it (whereas before, he squirmed and he wiggled a lot).

    This baby wrap does require time to practice and you really believe you need someone to show you how to use it properly with your baby. Watching their video and reading the manual doesn't help. I must admit, I have only tried front carrying but not any other style, mainly because I didn't have time to go back to the store to learn another method and I couldn't learn on my own using the instructional material.

    Overall, I love this wrap because it's comfortable and my baby loved it. But I don't recommend it to anyone who can't find help to learn how to use it because you'll get frustrated and that is the last thing you need as a mom with a newborn baby!

    Finally I have my hands free to accomplish tasks duriong the day! My son loves being cuddled and loves being in his Moby wrap.

    I got a very good deal on this by picking up a $28 re-packaged clearance once on a cross-border shopping trip. In Canada they seem to be hard to find (at least for me in a smaller city). They are easily ordered online though. Usually for around $62. A lot for a big stretchy peice of fabric but that seems to be around what slings/warps cost up here. I would say for the price try to find a deal or a used one.

    at first I was intimidated by the complex looking instructions but don't be. One time and I can do it from memory. Baby fits securely and comfortably and it is easy on your back and shoulders. The fabric is really long so it always touches the ground. That is the one draw back not good for doing up outside the home. I just put it on before I go out and slip him in once I arrive at my destination.

    My baby gives it two thumbs up :)
