Moby Wrap Elements Stretchy Baby Carrier from Newborn - Kiwi
Our summary: we think a Moby stretchy wrap is a must have for your new baby, it's so reassuring for them as it feels womb like, they can smell you and feel your heartbeat and warmth. It even helps with their sense of balance and space more than when they are lying flat all the time. It helps them to soothe and potentially cry less as they feel more supported and reassured. It may help with reflux as they're more upright too. It also helps the parent to have hands free to get on with cooking, cleaning or chasing toddlers! We recommend you wear it like a t-shirt all the time so you can easily pop your baby in and out as you need to. Ideal for quick trips to the shops etc too instead of lugging a pram or car seat out of the car.
A parenting favourite for its comfort, style, and adaptability, the award-winning MOBY Wrap is made from soft, breathable, durable fabric that evenly distributes the weight of carrying your baby across the back and hips and provides the perfect snuggle for newborns, infants, and toddlers.

HOW THE WRAP WORKS
Start by wrapping yourself. There is a rumor that it can take a few tries to learn to wrap, but you will soon get to know your Moby Wrap and become familiar with how tight you will wrap yourself and as baby grows you will naturally adjust for your growing baby, wrapping for the perfect fit every time.
For newborns an inside pocket is created where the fabric comes from your shoulder and crosses your body. This pocket will hug your little one, allowing them to stay in an upright fetal position that is so important in this stage of development.
For older babies, baby comes in and sits on the X created by the crisscrossed fabric at your chest. This X cradles baby in a deep seated position that supports the natural curve of baby's spine and while allowing you to spread the fabric wide to reach from knee to knee.
Nursing in a Moby is a wonderful option for breastfeeding mothers. We recognize that every mother/baby nursing relationship is different. Therefore, our Moby carriers provide a variety of options for breastfeeding so you can discover what works best for you.
Many mamas find success nursing baby upright in the Newborn Hug or Hug Hold. This is a great option for babies who have adapted to latching on in a vertical position. Many moms report that they love the simplicity and ease of breastfeeding their baby this way in a Moby Wrap.
For moms and babies who prefer to nurse in a horizontal position, for safety, we recommend taking baby out of the Moby Wrap to nurse, leaving the Moby Wrap on mom. Once baby has finished breastfeeding, baby is easily put back into the wrap in an upright position.
When using a Moby Wrap while breastfeeding, use your arms to support baby. After feeding, always move baby's face away from the breast and re-position upright.
