Who has one? What do you think? How easy is it to get on?

I've got one. Have had it for seven years. It's a bit challenging to figure out at first but once you get the hang of it it's super easy. It's perfect for snuggling itty bitty ones and for when you're out in public...baby is all tucked inside and nobody can put their grubby fingers on baby!

I have a Sleepy Wrap which I like a little better than the Moby Wrap, but it's the same style of wrap carrier I agree w/ Tyra that it's a little overwhelming at first but it doesn't take long to get used to. It's so very helpful and it's especially good with winter babies like ours will be. You pop baby in the carrier and wrap your coat around him/her and off you go!

I love using the wrap until 5-6 months when I start using the Ergo carrier. The wrap is so wonderful and snuggly for newborns. The best!!

I bought one when DD was an infant. When I took it out of the package, I was laughing hysterically at how long it was. I gave up very quickly on trying to figure it out I may give it another try this time around though.

I used mine when my daughter was tiny, but then it got too hot to use! Won't be an issue this time around. It took a few tries to learn, but really not bad, and I'm sure there are videos online that might be more helpful than just pictures.

I did a Moby with my second baby and it was great. The only problems with it are... it's cotton. Good for breathability not so good since cotton stretches. I noticed I had to readjust and retie it several times after I washed it as the fabric tightened up and had to restretch.

Also, start using it immediately. I started using it right away and my son enjoyed it until he started walking and noticed his brother wasn't being held all the time. I put him in it anyway and it still worked even with his wiggles. I had friends with Mobies who did not use it right away and their babies hated it.

I loved mine.... It took a bit of practice but I got really good at putting it on.

Only negatives is its bulky to take with you, and it's hot.

Moby's are great! It can be very intimidating at first with all that fabric, but after a couple test runs, it wasn't bad. I loved it when my son was little bitty. He grew super fast though and we switched to an Ergo once it got uncomfortable having him in the Moby.
