Thank you.
I do have a seven sling (crap, I know) and a Mei Tai. Heathen loved the Mei Tai, but we only used when she was older, so I don't know how well it would work with a newb

Yeah I haven't seen anyone wrap or baby wear here in general. I was NIP at DD's pediatricians office and this one dude kept looking over like, every 2 seconds. I was covering and being discreet about it, too. I was just like, whatever..lol. I've NIP a few times so far and have had people staring and stuff but no one has said anything, so meh. I told DH while we were at cracker barrel that I dare someone to say something to me lol

I paid like $7 for jersey knit fabric and was able to make 3 "moby wraps". Look around for deals online.

Nope, they suck. I have a moby and a ring sling. My moby stays in the car in case I forget my sling but I hardly use it because wrapping him takes too much time compared to just throwing him in the sling, but he's getting bigger and I'm going to start looking at woven wraps, then I can wear DD too, moby's only hold so much weight because they are stretchy and no longer safe, you also can't do back Carey's with the moby because it is unsafe because they are stretchy. Wovens are quite a bit more expensive though.

Oh and another tid bit... When you buy the fabric you cut it in half width wise so you really end up with 2 wraps! Sell, save or gift:)

Heathen was rarely hungry when we were out and about so I rarely NIP with her. This time, I don't want to me stuck in the house with 2 kids, so I plan on being out. We're a military town, so either young people or elderly people. But I may carry around cards with our state laws on BFing just so people get informed instead of walking around looking disgusted.

I thought you cut it length wise? I read through a tutorial yesterday and it was a little confusing because the way she described folding and cutting it.

That's a good idea! DD is only 17 days old so I haven't NIP much yet, but so far I haven't run into any issues with people about it. I do use a cover in public, receiving blanket if it's too hot. I'm starting to get good at getting everything situated without showing anything, but until I can do it perfect then I'm going to still cover in public. More because I'd rather jot have a bunch of people seeing my tit haha

I've read that too. But I want mine bigger so I can wrap for longer so I read to cut it 30" instead of 22.5". I wish they made osnaburg in 60" :(

I didn't realize the osnaburg is thinner than the jersey:( I was referring to either especially with a NB. nice to know though!!

Standard fabric width is 45". Some come in 60".
