    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 love the Moby baby wrap! As a mother of three, I was able to comfortably put my baby in the wrap and still tend to my other children. Outings were soooo easy with the wrap! I didn't have to lug around a stroller and my hands were always free! I would highly recommend this to everyone!

    I love my Moby wrap.
    I never thought to get a wrap with my older children but did get one for my youngest.
    It was a great choice.
    It is so nice having your baby all snug on your chest while having your hands free to do anything else.

    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!

    My baby does not approve of this wrap. Every time I've tried it with him, he screams. He prefers to face outwards and doesn't like being pressed face first against me that closely. I have another carrier that allows more room and he is ok in that position.

    What irks me about this product is the following:
    * It's pretty expensive for one long piece of fabric that you could make yourself.
    * It's really complicated to use, requiring a manual and instructional video. As a new Mom you may not have the patience. I didn't.
    * Getting the baby in is a two person job unless you really know what you're doing, which takes practice. If you are at home by yourself you may be frustrated.

    Some people such as my lactation consultant suggest this can be worn as a shirt. It can't. Unless fashion is of no concern to you.

    This gets a thumbs down from me.

    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 :)

    I have 3 children and tried every baby carrying device that exists. The Moby is by far the best baby carrying device out there. My baby never cries because she is so happy and content in the Moby. Babies that are worn are happier babies and almost never experience colic. Everyone should have a Moby!
