I'm hemming my own gauze wrap right now. It can't be done soon enough: it's 90 degrees today!

Okay because I can get 10 yards at Walmart for $10!

Thankfully we're at 77 today because we had a storm a couple days ago. But we should be back up to 90 by sunday.

Re: Moby help

Time to convert to woven wraps! You can make one easily. The heavy weight of baby is likely causing the Moby to stretch more than you're comfortable with. I still use my Moby for my 21-lb baby but have to adjust it a lot due to sagging and slipping, whereas I hardly ever have to adjust my homemade woven wrap (made with flannel material).

How do u like ur flannel wrap? And how did u make it? Did u double side it, so there is no "wrong" side?? I am torn between flannel (bc it's cheap) and gauze.
