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...

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.
