It really really does....this is why I'm so hesitant on purchasing one. Maybe I'll get a used one just for the house.

I use a moby for my newborn. I love it. I was a little intimidated by all the fabric and wrapping at first, but it really isn't that difficult.



My friend uses a k'tan and loves it. She says it's just a moby with out the wrapping. So they are Kind of the same thing, I guess? lol.



I do agree with the other poster though, ergos are great as well, especially for then they get bigger. I just like the moby with my newborn because I feel like it keeps her nice and close.

I don't know how good they are but SevenSlings normally has a code online for a free carrier when you pay shipping.

If I was rich I would buy all 3 lol. But I'm now considering the Ergo since mamas seem to love it (which was lovely I saw at BRU but the price made me walk away lol)

I looked at those but I don't like the idea of the pressure on one shoulder. They do seem to have the most adorable fabric selection though.

Lol. So would I. I got mine from a friend for cheap. If I hadn't gotten a good deal on it, I prob wouldn't have bought it tbh.



You could always check CL or some baby wearing swaps to see if you can get one for a bit cheaper. And sign up for babysteals.com, once in awhile Ergos are on there for cheap. =)

I saw 2 Mobys on there for $15 earlier so I'm thinking that for the house, since I can wrap it and leave it for lazy house days.



Going to check this site out though, I've never heard of it!

thats how I felt for a long time about getting a boba. but after buying the moby and 2 strollers later I bought the boba and wish I would have done it sooner. when I purchased it I told myself it was an investment because I can carry up to a 45 pound child on my back thats like a 5 or 6 year old lol

That's not a bad deal =) you can make your own too, but 5 yards of fabric gets pricey so sometimes buying a second hand moby ends up being cheaper lol. My LO is all wrapped up in ours now. She loves it =)



and yea a friend of mine passed it on to me not too long ago. lol. I think she said she got her ergo off it for like 69 or 70 bucks brand new.

I got a moby and have TRIED and failed to use it. Way too much fabric, and complicated. Its sitting in the closet collecting dust.

I personally like the Boba wrap better than the Moby wrap, just because of the fabric difference. The Moby wrap gets on my nerves with the way the fabric will be tight in some places, but saggy in others.



Have you looked on Etsy? There are some handmade wraps you can buy out of thinner, gauzey fabrics as well. They usually aren't stretchy though. Some people prefer that, but some don't.



I have a Boba carrier, and from what I understand, its just like an Ergo, with slight differences. The Boba you don't need an insert for a newborn, (Ergo does) but I have yet to really use it. It just doesn't really feel like its holding the baby very well. Once he gets a little older (he's 2 months now), I imagine it will get put to use.



Seven Slings are rather awful in my opinion. They're a great deal, but I ended up giving mine away.



I never hear too much about the K'tans. I'm interested in them though.

K'tan! it does all the same things as the moby, but without all the ridiculous wrapping and extra fabric. i found the moby to be a huge hassle and ended up getting rid of it. i didn't have any problem with the k'tans sizing - i was between the xs and s and got the xs size like they suggested. it felt a little snug the first time, but then fit great. i also just bought one as a gift for a friend because i saw their prices went down! i got it on diapers.com for $49 and free shipping. such a good deal! wish mine cost that when i got it a few years ago, but i still love it!
