18 Feet of Comfort

After I gave birth to my son, I remember realizing just how nice it was to just carry him around in my uterus, instead of my arms. I suddenly had to have a place to put him if I wanted to shop, wash dishes, do laundry, etc. I really loved having him close to me during those early months and it felt completely unnatural to have him too far away. Closeness was something we both needed as we were adjusting to him being on "the outside".

At one of my baby showers, my best friend gave me an indispensable gift that I would later depend on to get me through the day with a newborn. My Moby Wrap became a make-shift womb that I could hold my sleepy-headed, balled-up, floppy little peanut around in whenever I didn't want to be stuck to my bed or the couch. Thanks to that 18 foot piece of cotton fabric - I was mobile again!

Learning to tie the Moby took a tiny bit of practice at first, but once I got the hang of it I felt like a pro. The way it used my entire back, shoulders and hips to carry the weight of my baby made it very comfortable to wear. Unlike most carriers out there, the Moby Wrap is super versatile and allows you to wear your baby on your front, back or hip and you can even choose to wear your baby facing inward or outward depending on how you wrap it (and depending on their age.) When the stroller or infant carrier just felt too far away after being together for over 9 months, the Moby allowed us the closeness we both craved.

The Moby Wrap comes in a wide variety of colors, but I think it's especially cool that it now comes in a 100% certified organic cotton under their "Moby Select" line. This wrap is now available on Fawn&Forest and *reminder* if you use our "figandsage" promo code, you can get 10% off of your order and free shipping. So now you can keep your baby close AND be comfortable at the same time!


P.S. If you have a Moby and want to share any thoughts about it's use or comfort, please feel free to post a comment here. We'd love to hear your thoughts!
