Has anybody used this and have you used the Ergo infant carrier with it? Really good deal on Zulily adn think I'm going to buy it but need something for an infant, too...

I haven't used one but I read good things. I actually got one on Zulily too. I think it is a great deal. I think a wrap is way easier and more comfortable for an infant so I'll just use the wrap until the LO is a bit bigger.

Woo hoo I got the mint one! :) I dont have experience with this or the ergo so I can't answer your question about using the infant insert with it. Maybe post over in the babywearing forum asking about it.

it is a LOT like the ergo. the back is higher and there are toddler foot straps. those are the main differences. i have both/love both.

@caleighsmom-do you think you could use the infant ergo insert with it? I like the idea of the Moby but it seems like it would be super hot and a pain to wrap...

I got one too...my 4th gen beco might not make it through this baby..it was so well worn with my daughter and I hate the butterfly.

good ?!! I am not sure. I didn't have the insert with my first but I should have one arriving soon that I ordered. I had planned on using my ergo until he gets bigger then switching to the boba. I will try it out when it gets here, but it is an AWESOME deal and I say don't pass it up!!

Definitely don't write of the Moby without trying it a few times. It is a challenge to wrap the first few times but I don't think mine was hot at all and once I got the hang of it (quickly) I wore it all the time. I could not have survived without it! Absolutely the best newborn carrier IMO.

I was reading that the Beco Gemini (http://diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1153389&highlight=newborn) was great for newborns.

For wraps this is a good thread (http://diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1157066). They recommend the Sleepy Wrap or the Wrapsody (breeze or stretch)...

I can't believe how much is out there and how overwhelming it is just getting a carrier...

There are also options out there to rent carriers for real cheap so that you can try different ones out.

I still think for a newborn the wraps are the best and they are fairly inexpensive...

It's a great deal, but we already have a moby and an ergo. A good baby carrier that supports your back is a MUST!
