View Full Version : Help me decide

I want a new carrier for this baby. I have 2 MTs (babyhawk and a WAHM), a fleece pouch sling that I made, and a gauze wrap that I'm incompetent with. I think I either want a stretchy wrap like a Moby or a ring sling (or both...shhhh, don't tell dh).
What do you think works best for a newborn? Keep in mind I will have a 2.5 yr old maniac to chase around so I need stability.

I just got my Moby a couple weeks ago, and I haven't used it but I can't wait to! It says it can be used for up to 35 lbs as well, so I can also use it for Cody.
I have a ring sling, and with Cody had no one to really show/tell me how to use it right so I had problems with it. This time I think will go better. It's really easy to use as long as you have it positioned right.

I loved the Moby for the newborn stage!! Especially since Jocelyn had reflux and was much happier upright! I couldn't use the ring sling until she was older and had more neck control because of it. But from about 6 months to 10 months the RS was ALL I used! So in all seriousness I say you need both :) (But you could always wait a bit to buy the RS)

That is a tough one! My friend had a wrap for her son and loved it for the newborn stage!

I hate using my ring sling with DS. Maybe I'll like it more when he's a bit bigger but for now all I use is my stretchy wrap.
Moby all the way for a nb. I had one for my last baby and wished I"d had it for all of them. It really is stable and comfortable for the baby, and you! But the sling does come in handy when they get bigger. I just found the moby to be more versatile for when they are itty bitty and can't hold their head up on their own. And I was chasing a titan of terror when dd was born.

Moby all the way for me. Slings look nice, but I think two shouldered carriers are so much more comfortable. Plus with the Moby you tie and go - no need to do constant adjustments, just pop the babe in and out.
