Re: Action pics of wearing your babe(s)...

I always tell moms to tie it "10 minutes too tight," so that when it stretches and baby gets in it, it feels too tight, but then loosens to "just right."

I had a ring sling and just couldn't get the hang of it, plus I carry all my tension in my shoulders so one shoulder slings hurt! The Moby is much more comfortable. Maybe something like an ergo or boba when she's bigger....

Thanks! I had it custom made in an itty bitty size. I had one for DD2 as well but made from a different wrap, and it was our favorite!

It agree--Erin, you are doing awesome.

Emily--Nursing in a carrier does take some getting used to, but once you have it down, it's pretty easy. I used to nurse DD1 and DD2 in my mei tais while teaching (while walking around the room helping students with their work), and my students didn't know.

I love that one! I used to have a Girasol wrap that was very similar; it was Chococabana.

Thank you! That is awesome that they nursed while you taught!

Re: Action pics of wearing your babe(s)...

How in the world do you guys get the wrap so snug around baby? I can get the bottom tight, but no matter how I tighten or tie or adjust, I can't get the top rails (all the rails around Piper's head/neck, kwim?) tight.
I don't know if it's how I'm tying it - this wrap is tapered, and the parts I want tighter end up not being tied, if that makes sense, so I wonder if they're just loosening?
