Hi everyone, popping in from March DDC with a question for those who use the Moby wrap.

I got mine about a week ago and I can't figure out how to get in on well enough that DS is supported enough that I can go somewhat hands-free. I follow the directions in the book and watched the video on their website, but it just never seems tight enough.

I was so excited to get it b/c I've heard so many raves about it and I feel like I must be missing some step, b/c even when I get it on I still have to use an arm to support DS's head. Half the time it gets loose after I wear it for a little while and I just take it off.

I know it's hard without seeing how I'm putting it on but does anyone have any tips? Thx!

Put it on way tighter than you think you should. That worked for me. Because the fabric is stretchy, there will be room for the baby, even if it seems like there isn't. Also, Charlie's head does flop around if I leave her head out, but you can pull the flaps up over her head to keep her close to you once she falls asleep.

I agree - tie it tighter than you think it should be. It's tight getting them in, but once they're in they're comfy and good to go. You can also check out youtube for good videos on all different ways to use the moby.

Thank you Kiliki... for my adorable signature!

Position it right under your breasts and make sure it's snug. Not tight, but snug. If it's too tight your baby will let you know.

Definitely tighter!! When I was first using it I thought I could only tie it in the back but once I did it tighter (someone was teaching me new holds and using it) I had MORE than enough room to bring it around to the front and tie it. Once you cross it behind your shoulders and bring it to the center, that's when you can sit there and get it tighter before you bring it around your back again...if that makes sense!

Thanks everyone! I tried it making it really tight, and it took a little practice but it definitely is more supportive now! DS conked out after a few minutes!
