I thought that carrying my newborn around would be a breeze. How hard could carrying around an eight pound little bundle be? Turns out an eight pound bundle can get awfully heavy when you’re carrying him around 24/7! Luckily, a friend offered to lend me her Moby Wrap. I had used a pouch sling before, but never a wrap. It took me a while to get the hang of it, but once I did, I loved it. There are over 10 different holds that are possible with this wrap – from the kangaroo carry to the hug hold. You can even carry twins! Because the fabric is spread across your entire back, the weight of the baby is distributed evenly. I never got a backache from using it, which is more than I can say for other slings I’ve tried. In short, I don’t know what I would do without it with my infant son and I look forward to using it to carry him as a toddler too. You can get the Moby Wrap in 100% EKO-certified organic cotton.
