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.
In a Moby Wrap, baby is secured by three sections of fabric for triple wrapped security. A Moby Wrap's one-way stretch cotton and wide width ensure that your baby is held close and tight. When sleeping, the back of your baby's head can also be secured under the cotton fabric for added safety. You can finally have both hands free and know your baby is safe and secure. Each Moby Wrap comes with an easy to follow full-color instructional booklet containing wrapping instructions and safety information. Moby Wraps do not put a lot of extra material or bulky padding between you and your baby. Your baby can hear your heartbeat and find comfort in the warmth of your body within the cuddly confines of a Moby Wrap.
Moby Wraps are the optimal baby carrier for infants. Parents of newborns have found that skin-to-skin contact with their infants, which can be easily achieved while wearing a Moby Wrap, leads to faster regaining of birth weight. The durable fabric and generous length of Moby Wraps are design characteristics intended to adapt to your growing baby. The fabric can securely and comfortably hold babies up to 35 lbs.
It is amazing how quickly a baby will settle down once wrapped in a Moby. Pediatric experts like Dr. Sears stress the importance of holding your baby often and close. A Moby Wrap allows you to do this with ease. The style of the wrap ensures your baby is uniquely close, mimicking the natural way a baby is held in its caregiver's arms, while providing ultimate comfort and support. Your baby can be kept close and happy while enjoying the benefits of being carried. Carried babies cry significantly less, develop secure attachments to their caregivers, have improved sleep habits and have lower levels of stress.
Prewashing before use is recommended. The Moby Wrap is easy to clean. Machine wash your Moby Wrap in cold water and tumble dry low. As with all cotton items, slight shrinkage is expected during the first wash. Extra length is built into the design of each Moby Wrap to ensure a good fit after washing.
