DD LOVED now hates Moby what to do?

My DD 3 weeks old loved the moby the past two weeks. Now she won't go in it. I really need my hands to take care of my 2 year old and I am not sure what to do. She won't go in the Ergo either!

Re: DD LOVED now hates Moby what to do?

Are you putting her in the Moby with her legs tucked inside the wrap? If so, try legs out. Some babies are very particular about this and even if they liked it before, it can be like a switch flips sometimes and no more!

Yea try the legs out.
And it's probably just a phase, although I'm sure you don't want to hear that.
If she doesn't want to go in an Ergo either, then it's probably just a phase.

Yeah, my son hated to have his legs confined in any way (no slings, legs in Moby or even sleep sacks - and he didn't like to sit either!). Legs out changed our dynamic, we got out so much more and once he could face out it was a different world! Do you have an infant insert for your Ergo, you could try sitting her sideways in it?

I haven't tried the sideways in the ergo I might have to! I tried doing legs out in the moby but I couldn't seem to get it to fit really well on her (I am not a great wrapper yet lol) and she just screamed and screamed.

You may want to try what Moby Wrap calls the "Kangaroo Carry" (it's actually a Front Wrap Cross Carry if you want to look up video tutorials on YouTube) when doing legs out. You wrap around the baby, instead of pre-tying, so you will get a much better fit that way.
Good luck mama!

Another for try legs out. DS HATED being froggied in my carrier. You can also try sitting her sideways in the Ergo with both legs out or one leg in and one leg out. Both legs out might be too wide for her now. I had to try those things with DS in the Beco Butterfly II.
