I have a sleepy wrap and used it on Cambria when she was little. Before 6 months. Most of the time we used the Bjorn. When we have another baby we will have to buy another carrier cause Cambrias wonderful teeth have eaten through the Bjorn! Ugh! I did want a ergo but they are so pricey. Im borrowing my friends when I go to Seattle next month.
You can also buy fabric to make you own moby wrap for about $9. Just need 5 yds of jersey fabric (stretchy but not too stretchy), cut it so that its 20 inches wide (so if the fabric is 60 inches wide, you end up with 3 wraps, haha). The jersey fabric doesn't fray so if you wash it once, ,the edges just curl up a little bit. Then you fasten it just like a regular moby wrap.
Just remember that where the "moby" tag is, its just right in the middle of the length of fabric so that should help you when putting it on. Much cheaper than a real moby, especially since you aren't using it forever!
What about the Baby Bjorn Active (with the lumbar support)? They have some nice used ones on ebay.
And it will be September in Florida so I'm worried about overheating.
Ive heard from many people that BB hurt your back... lumbar support incl)... and the baby is resting on his/her crouch... where ergo and moby, and many others the baby is sitting on their butts and thighs... picture sitting on a bike seat... thats what its like for the baby in a Baby Bjorn. Doesnt sound comfy and its not like the baby will tell u!
