We have a baby bjorn that I plan to use for hiking, walks, camping etc but just decided that I want to get a moby like wrap for wearing LO around the house and such,...anyone have recs on a certain type or where to find the best prices?
I have a moby. They are price controlled, so for the most part they are the same price everywhere, I like the moby because it's safe for a newborn and lo can nurse while in it.
I also bought a sling for hot days if we go for a walk in the neighborhood this summer. I bought it three days ago on clearance at BBB it was originally $50, but Igot it for $8.
i got a sakura baby sling. i went to a cloth diaper store and they had them there. i was able to try on all the different ones that they had there and pick the one that was going to be best for me.
i'm a hot person by nature, i always have been and the maya wrap was too hot for me. the sakura was expensive, $88, but as much as i plan to use it, i think it'll be worth it. plus i used part of my xmas bonus from work to buy it, so that helped. i did go on amazon when i got home to see how i did on the price and it was the exact same as what i paid.
1. I like the moby wrap, but I find it to be really hot. Basically the only time I was comfortable in it was to put baby in it and wear it as a shirt around the house.
2. I've bought several carriers off ebay. I research on the site, then find them online. I've saved a ton of money.
3. FYI regarding the bjorn. Some namebrand carriers like that are painful for baby. A good carrier provides support all across a baby's bottom to their knees, like they were sitting down. Many mainstream "backpack" type carriers just provide support in the crotch area, and they aren't great for babies to use. GL
