Just Like Mumma

I mentioned in my last post how much I love my baby carrying pouch, but I can't use it for long periods of time. It starts to pull on my shoulders and back. I was reading a new post on The Cloth Diaper Whisper about slings. She mentioned she uses a Moby Wrap. I have wanted to carry my babies for longer periods of time but just couldn't bear the pain. I think this could be the answer.

I have been looking around at different brands and checking out all kinds of how-to-wear videos on YouTube about these wraps today. This morning I was watching some videos and the girls both ran over to watch with me (any thing to watch "TV," right?!). Bookworm asked what they were doing in the videos. I told her that they were using a baby wrap, something I would use to help carry Monster once he is born.

A little while later she ran and grabbed her blanket and told me (in Elmo's World fashion), "This is how I use a baby wrap." I tied her blanket for her and she ran to get her baby to wear. Of course Gypsy had to join in on the baby wearing fun!

I will be off to my local Joann store to pick up some fabric to make my own Moby style wrap.

  1. i have a Moby that you are more than welcome to borrow. it's a muted teal color. i used it a little with James, but i ended up just carring him around most of the time because he was so tiny. let me know if you want to borrow it. -jennie (from mommy group with Lori; she has my phone number)
