Quoting Amber :]:" I've heard people like the bobawrap better because of the material, but definitely making your own is ... [snip!] ... strip of material. I think I've seen a few pins for it on pinterest. The boba is $48ish I think the moby is around the same. "


i will look on pinterest, thanks!

Quoting MommaNoodle:" so, which one does this? lol, $100 is a lot of money for me! plus, i don't get paid maternity leave. so, money is going to be super tight....."


Tons of wovens would! I'm a huge huge fan of Didy linen vogels for people who can only get one wrap. Didy cotton Pfau is great, too. I'd get a size 6 if you're small or average sized or a 7 if you're fluffy :D Are you a member of the babywearing swap on Facebook? There are hundreds for sale at any given time. One good thing about wraps is that they generally hold their value well and you can get most, if not all of your money back when you sell.

Here's a link if you need it :D You can even post in the ISO 7-9 album and say, "I'm new and I'm looking for a size 7 that will be good from birth to toddler and my budget is $x can anyone help." Good luck!

When my first was born in 09, hardly anyone around here baby wore. I never got rude comments or nasty looks, they were more happy and excited to see something different and probably even more again because I was young but looked even younger haha. People mostly commented on how content and happy he was :)



Now you don't go to the shops without seeing someone wearing their baby.

Right?! I've been wanting it since September and couldn't get it. A friend of a friend just sent me an email saying she'd sell me her USED-ONCE Jamaica for $80!!!!! I am beyond stoked right now.

Lol I stick to the drama board and a couple of smaller secret groups, but I always recommend BLS to people just starting out because there's less off topic chatter and they're super helpful! I love the babywearing community so much sometimes. I have an ISO out for a hard to come by wrap and something up for trade looking for it. I have this ridiculous pregnancy craving to have that wrap in my hands and today someone I've never even spoken to but have seen around on other boards offered to send me hers to borrow and play with for a little while since it'll probably take awhile to hunt one down. I am so amazed by the generosity of some of these women!
