Moby Wrap??

I am thinking about purchasing one... I read lots of good reviews but would love to hear what you think of them??

Are they worth it?

Are they hard to get on?

Do you feel they are safe?

I am short...will this make a difference??

So do you recommend a Moby wrap or a different type of carrier?

They seem very daunting at first, but I would practice a few times before putting a baby into it. Also if you have a doll practice putting a doll into it first too :)

I love my wrap and my peanut shell sling. Both I found were great to have.

I'd say do it! I am in love with mine, and wished I had known of them sooner. I used my with my twins, and don't know how I would have made it through the infant stage otherwise :)
So yes, I believe they are totally worth it. (They can be found used on Ebay/Craigslist sometimes to save on the cost, if that is prohibitive. Mine was gently used from Ebay)

They are not hard to get on if you practice a few times withOUT the baby. I became comfortable with the wrap, and practiced putting it on and off using the instructions before the twins arrived, using build-a-bears!

I feel most secure wearing my babies in the Moby. I was able to go about my daily (safe) tasks wearing the twins as they slept.

I don't think your height will affect the Moby. If someone is very thin they will have extra fabric left over (I tuck my extras into the lower parts of the wrap) If someone is overweight they may need to tie it at the back rather than the front.
I wholeheartedly recommend the moby, that said I have a maya sling as a quick and easy back up for when I go shopping, etc so that I don't risk getting the ends of the Moby dirty in the parking lot. The ends of the Moby sometimes graze the ground as you put it on, but that only really matters if it's wet/muddy where you're standing to put it on.
Hope this helps, feel free to ask me if you have any more questions!
Lots of good comments and advice I love it!

A FB friend just asked if I had looked in to a sleepy wrap?? Anyone heard of that one?

I'm pretty sure the Sleepy Wrap is the same thing as the Moby Wrap, just a different manufacturer/branding. Looks nearly identical to me :)
I really like my Moby Wrap but it was pretty confusing learning how to tie it correctly. I ended up following a youtube video to help me figure it out. My daughter didn't like it too much though so I didn't get to use it as much as I would have liked. Good Luck!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
