OMG I just love it! It makes life so much easier for me. I was hoping before Eabha got her that both of us would like it and she is just happy as a clam in there and it allows me to have my hands free for whatever I need to do. I use the baby K'tan and love how easy it is to put on (the Moby and I didn't get on lol). How are you finding baby wearing if you do it? Any favorite carriers?

I wore Eve last evening in the Moby. She was tired, but fighting sleep. I knew the Moby would get her to snuggle up on my chest and she was out in no time. I also have an Ergo.

I struggled with the Moby ... Couldn't get it right. Have a Mei Tai, haven't tried it yet. Want to use it for walks around the neighborhood when the weather gets nicer.

I wouldn't be able to function without babywearing I liked the Moby early on, and then used mostly the Beco Gemini. Now I keep the Beco in the van and have the Ergos at home. This past weekend our whole family went on a hike...DH and I each had a baby in an Ergo and it was so great! We couldn't have taken a stroller on the trail, and since we were hands-free we could help Claire or use our hands/arms for balance.

We loved the moby but he seems to be getting fussy with how tight he is in it. I want an Ergo but can't bring myself to spend that much money on it and then not like it or use it.

I love my Moby. I use it all the time and barely ever use my sling or mei tai anymore. He's too big for the sling and the mei tai is a PITA b/c I have to undo it to get him out then redo it. The Moby is more of a hassle to put on but once it's on, I can pretty much leave it on all day and put him in or take him out as needed.

I have a boba wrap which has been wonderful! I love it, and he is definitely the most comfortable in it. However, now that he weighs around 18 lbs, it is kind of hard on my back if I wear it for more than an hour or so. I also have an ergo, and we are just starting to use it... he is barely tall enough to straddle and peek out the top. I wear him in front with the ergo. It is the carrier I bring for quick "in-out" errands since it is easier to get him in and out of than the wrap. I'm sure in a few more months we will be using the ergo exclusively. I carried Josiah in the ergo until he was 3!

We carry Luyando with a plain piece of cloth. The expensive carriers are too complicated for my brain. I have a cheap infantino but I am so used to the plain piece of cloth that the infantino will be getting no use from me. Luyando loves being worn.

I have too many carriers, lol. Right now I carry Esther in a woven wrap (ie, plain piece of cloth) or the Moby, but she's almost big enough to straddle something now, so we may start using a mei tei and the ergo son. I really like the woven wrap right now though.

I have a beco and a mei tei that I made (I'd like to make a new one and change some things up). I love using mine to grocery shop!

I've been struggling with this. I have been using my Moby style homemade wrap all along to this point. I have a Snugli, but I won't be using it now that I know it's not good for babies and it kills my shoulders anyway. I cut fabric for a woven wrap, but couldn't really get comfortable in it. I've been wanting a Mei Tai, thought about trying to make one, but I just can't get brave enough or find fabric I like for it. I may still just buy one or maybe I'll get brave and order some fabric to make one. I just am afraid to try it.

You can use something like a heavy twill to make the straps and inside of a Mei Tei and then get a pretty cotton print for the outside! I did my Mei Tei myself, and just used two pieces of twill, but I was up north when I did that. I want to make one for down here, and would do the twill/print combination now.

What about the woven wrap did you have trouble with? It has a lot of learning curve to it, but when you get it it is SO easy!

What's wrong with the Snugl? Ours has been "hip approved" by Nora's orthopedic surgeon. I know there are different styles...

(It was hip-approved for facing in, I didn't ask him about facing out because we haven't done that yet. I'm thinking I won't use it for facing out, I don't like how her legs "dangle")

I just ordered the snugli seated baby carrier. It had good reviews so I hope we like it. The baby sits in it in a seated position with their knees at hip level like they are suppose to. Is this the same kind you have?

I love the Moby early on and now I'm mostly using my Ergo (and sometimes the Beco.. which I prefer for back carries when the babe is older). Charlie LOVES it and almost always goes to sleep as soon as he's being worn!

I have been loving the Boba structured carrier. I thought the Ergo was good until I tried the Beco, and I thought the Beco was good until I tried the Boba. Too bad I bought it for my husband for Christmas. I feel a little bit bad wearing it all the time!

I have an ergo, a storchenwiege wrap (piece of cloth) and a ring sling. Oh and the moby, but I don't use it anymore.
Yetty and hiskid, what kind of ties do you do with your wraps??
I use the ring sling and the ergo the most. I want to use the wrap more but it takes so long for me to put it on... I need to practice more I guess.
I love the ergo while I'm at work watching the 2 girls since I can nurse Emmy in it and it has the privacy of the hood-- the two girls don't know where milk comes from; they think milk=formula. Lol.
The ring sling is great because it's so quick to put on. Only problem is, I can't use it with her to cook anymore since she has started reaching for things. Lol.
