I was just wondering if anyone had experience with the Moby Wrap and the Sleepy Wrap. I'm wondering which is better in the long run. Or is it better to just make your own? I just don't know if a homemade one would look as good.

Any ideas? Thanks!

I'm think the Moby and the Sleepy Wrap are pretty much the same thing so I doubt one is any better than the other. The design of them is really so simple that I think you could make your own without anyone really being able to tell it is homemade. There are a bunch of websites with info on making your own if you are interested.

Good luck!

I think homemade is fine if you get good enough fabric. IMO the quality really lays in the fabric. I heard somewhere that the sleepy wrap is more elastic than the moby and may not last as well. I used the moby a lot until DD was about 8 months. Then I switched her to a mei tai as we were butting heads.

I have a Moby and a homemade wrap and prefer the homemade wrap. It's a lighter fabric with more stretch, which works better for us. I have heard good things about the SleepyWrap since it is stretchier and lighter than a Moby. My homemade wrap looks just as good as my Moby, IMO.

I love my Moby, but several women in my PR made their own and love it just as much! I agree that it probably depends on the fabric you use. It really is a simple design, but I can't sew a single thing so I had to buy one! Fortunately, as baby carriers go they aren't very expensive.

I just got a moby D, and a sleepy wrap. I have not used them with a baby because I'm not due until November, BUT I did notice while trying them both on that the sleepy wrap is more lightweight. I live in Nevada in 110 degree weather during the summer so I think it'll be better for the summertime.
I can't say as to how both of them are for babywearing though!

Thanks, everyone!

Andrea, did you sew the edges of your homemade Moby or did you leave them raw?
