Vacuum + baby + moby wrap = passed out, limp-limbed baby = Awe-SOME!
I don't know what I'd do without my Moby Wrap. I can do dishes, fold laundry, vacuum my house, nurse, and so much more - all while COMFORTABLY snuggling my baby. The moby is both versatile for various types of carries and it evenly distributes the weight so that you don't get back aches! Baby wearing rocks my socks!
Look at that fat foot!!
And, okay, I'll admit that I walk around singing, "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts!" every time I wear Joseph. It just seems so appropriate as he's usually sandwiched between them..
However, I think we're ready to graduate to back carries. No more coconut time for the little guy.
"We are? Mom, are you sure? Because, I really like the easy access."
"Yes, Joseph. We are ready for back carries. Trust me. I'm your mother. I know all."
"Of course you do, Mommy. You know everything. I'll never question you again." (Yeah. Right.)
Dude, when are you going to get some hair?
So, by executive Mommy decree, back carrying it is.
From what I've read, Moby Wraps really aren't meant for back carries. They aren't wide enough and they are far too stretchy. That means I'll have to graduate to a woven wrap.
There are a lot of different brands. Anyone have any suggestions? Tips? "Oh my gosh this woman is crazy" comments?
The other problem is that woven wraps are expensive. Like $100+ expensive. Maybe I can make one?
Maybe I can. I just googled it and found online tutorials HERE. Has anyone else made their own wraps??
As for learning the actual back carries, it may be tricky, but YouTube is my friend.
