Most Helpful Reviews on the Moby Wrap Baby Carrier.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – This is number one on my list for how my husband, daughter and I have survived her months of colic! What we like about it: – The Moby wrap was able to be used the day we brought our preemie baby home from the hospital…. – It spreads the weight out evenly across your back and shoulders and feels much better for longer periods of time…. What we don’t like about the Moby wrap:… (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – I bough this wrap because my newborn wanted to be held constantly during his first couple months. Pros: – Can accommodate a number of different types of front and back holds. – It is very comfortable to wear; as the wide fabric over the shoulder distributes the infants weight nicely….  Cons:- Takes a bit of time to get used to putting on; at first it’s hard to get everything on tight enough but not too tight…. I really never used this wrap again after my baby was 12 weeks old or so…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – … This product is 5.5 meters of fabric. Yes, that is a lot of fabric. However, that means that if you are plus size, it will still fit you comfortably before you lose all the baby weight and it won’t be a huge issue to go up or down in sizes. It also comes with a reusable carrying pouch, making it no bigger than a rolled up sweater when you need to go on a road trip or store it. It isn’t too warm, either….

  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – … on one hand, it’s nice to wear here and there. the wrap allows you to have your baby close with your hands free to prepare meals, do chores, etc. it distributes weight evenly across your back so you can wear it for a long time without getting sore. on the other hand, there are many things i don’t like about the wrap. it’s difficult to take on and off and definitely takes some practice….

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – … my baby was born 11 weeks early, so we spent a lot of time doing kangaroo care in the nicu. the moby wrap is perfect for us to continue doing kangaroo care at home and it allows me to still get things done around the house…. (read more and buy it at Target.com)
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – … The ends do drag the floor when putting it on, but with a little practice, I’ve figured out how to get around that. You do have to readjust sometimes, and it takes a little getting used to figuring out how you like it to fit. I did not find it difficult to put on at all; just watch the video for instructions. One of the best things about it is that you can tuck baby’s head into either side, which is great before they develop neck strenth. Baby is very secure and I NEVER feel like he will fall out….

What the Makers Say

  • The design of the Moby Wrap uses your entire back, as well as your shoulders, to carry the weight of your baby. Unlike other carriers, which have narrow straps or go across one shoulder, the Moby Wrap is a wide piece of durable fabric that is wrapped over both shoulders. It is amazingly comfortable and easy to wear. There are no buckles, snaps or other fasteners (that may break or bend). It is easy to adjust the fit of your Moby Wrap by varying how tightly you wrap yourself and baby. Moby Wraps are one size which means all caregivers can easily and comfortably share one wrap….
