View Full Version : Moby Slings

I just looked these up on Amazon.com, and there are many different kinds. They all seem to be pretty similar except for color. Are there any features or style differences that I should be looking for?
I want to be able to nurse baby in the wrap in addition to just baby-wearing.
Let me know if you have input or experience with nursing in moby wraps.

FOr instances, some of them say for 0-18 months, but not all of them do. And when I click on them to get more info- some of them do not specify if there is an age range. Does this mean that some of them are different sizes? Seriously, I think that sometimes it is best not to have so many choices to labor over!

No idea as I dont have a moby. I never really babywore with DS and this go around I bought a sling from Sevenslings.
If you're looking at Moby, can I recommend a "Lovey Duds" wrap? It is esentially the SAME thing, but has WAY cute patterns for the panel on the front. I have one and LOVE it. http://www.etsy.com/shop/loveyduds?ga_search_submit=&ga_search_query=lovey+duds&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade
As for the 0-18m thing, I think it's just a recommendation. I slowed down on the moby usage when my son was around 1 and 20ish lbs. We then started using the Ergo.

I have the original plain moby, its a one size fits all kinda thing... The difference is some have patterns and some don't that is the price difference (oh and probably organic cotton is more also). I used it for probably 8-9 months before switching to the ergo. And yes I nursed in it all the time, especially around the house.

I went through a LOT of wraps and slings with Hayden....lol
I liked the Moby for about the first 6 months or so, but once he started getting bigger, the fabric started stretching a lot more and with having to constantly rewrap it when it got to streched out, it ended up being more trouble than convenience at that point. It was a lifesaver for the months I used it though, and i'll use it again when this one comes, too :)
I tried a seven slings wrap, but it never felt like it was on right and it was more inconvenient than anything with having to have one side pulled down over my shoulder. Made reaching for anything a complete PITA, because I would always have to readjust it only to have to do it all over again.
My SIL let me use one of her Maya Ring Slings and it took some time for me to get it figured out, but once I did, it was great, and I was even able to nurse Hayden in it with the tail acting as a "cover" to help make it more discreet :)
I'll be using the Moby and Maya Ring Sling this time around.

DH surprised me. He bought me an original Moby in black from Craigs List. She washed it before baby was born but never ended up using it. It is in really good condition, looks brand new, and it was only $25! You can't beat that!
