Moby Giveaway!


Anabella, 3 days old

I recently asked a group of moms what their most valuable resources were during the first days of their baby’s life. I heard everything from newspapers to breastfeeding pillows; text messaging to home cooked meals. For me, it was the Moby.

Anabella lived in an organic purple Moby wrap for the first three months of her life. She fell asleep in the Moby, she saw the beach in the Moby, and she went to two weddings and three different states in the Moby.

I loved being able to kiss her head at any time

Although I never did manage to get Mark to try it on (could it have been the purple?), he agrees: it was indispensable. We’re not unique though. Using fabric or other materials to hold babies close to your body while freeing up your hands – “baby-wearing” – has been around since…well, since babies have!

Recent research proves what parents have known instinctively for years – babies are more content when snuggled close to their mother, especially during that “fourth trimester,” the three months after their birth. According to a study published in the journal Pediatrics, increased carrying leads to 43% less crying on average and 54% less crying during the evening hours!

I can whole-heartedly confirm this. I often couldn’t get my Moby wrap on fast enough in the mornings, and Anabella fell asleep snuggled close in the wrap. Admittedly, the Moby is a lot of fabric, but I liked how secure Anabella was compared to some other carriers I tried. Also, the fabric is so soft. Not only is there nothing between you and the baby, but there aren’t any metal or plastic rings or snaps to deal with. Just 100% cotton!

  1. Wow, ladies, this is an awesome giveaway! I would love the Moby in Pacific (from the Modern collection). We’re expecting baby #2 in October and I definitely want to get my hands on one of these before he/she arrives!

  2. I like the Moby Wrap page on FB, although when I press your link here it just takes meto my home page. 🙂

  3. Chocolate from the original line. I do not have a moby, but I love how it will adjust as you lose weight, or gain most typically 🙂

  4. Expecting Baby #2 any day now with a 16-month-old toddling around. A chocolate(Original) Moby would be a huge help!

  5. Thanks for doing this! What a great idea! I can’t wait to adopt our next little one and use a Moby wrap!

    I like the Modern Burgandy.

    I also like you and Moby on fb and I shared this link on fb!

    Thanks again!
