Things I'm Glad I Registered For #72: The Moby Wrap

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

I am delighted to have so many pregnant friends.  (Julie, Ashleigh, Christen, Gina, Missy, Lisa, Rachael, Amy --  I'm talking about you!)  It gives me the chance to "talk shop" about pregnancy and baby stuff with lots of my favorite ladies!  It also gives me the chance to opine about the good, the bad, and the ugly of baby registries.  Today, I have to share one "must have" -- the Moby wrap.

After Jack and I got home from our second trip to the pediatrician last week, he was cranky and fussy.  Hey, if I'd been to the doctor twice in one week and wanted a nap, I'd be cranky and fussy, too!  I decided to listen to my maternal instinct and cuddle the little dude for a while.

However, being a Type A attorney on her second sick day in one week shortly after maternity leave, I had a variety of things I wanted to do around the house.  Is there a way, I wondered, to do things while cuddling the little dude?  Enter, Moby wrap.

The Moby wrap, for the uninitiated, is about ten feet of jersey fabric that comes with an instruction manual.  You tie the fabric around your body in a way that creates numerous possibilities for how to tuck your baby into it and "wear" them.  I had tried it when Jack was a newborn, but he didn't like it.  Now that he is a seasoned professional at almost 4 months old, I decided to try it again.

Success!

Jack loved it.  We bopped around the house, doing things, for about an hour, at which point, Jack fell asleep. He then snoozed on my chest for another two hours.  I totally and completely loved every second of it:

(Despite the way this photo makes it look, I have a tank top on.  I'm just sayin'.)

So, mamas!  Get a Moby wrap.  It's been given the Jack Bernard seal of approval.

Hope this finds you well,
Heather

  1. Awww I remember that background but the picture was of a belly. Not a sweet boy in a wrap. Love it. When's our trip to the farmers market??? You can wear him!

  2. One of my friends gave me some kind of sling, but I don't think it's that one. I also got a Baby Bjorn, so it'll be interesting to see which one he prefers. Although we'll probably wait until he's better at holding his head up until using either.

  3. Millions of childbearing women in every culture of the globe swear by the wrap. Sorry they didnt all have soft jersey, machine washable wraps and disposeable diapers!
