Baby Wearers

Recommend your favorite carrier for a sleeping baby. I have a Mei Tai but Luke doesn't sleep well in it at all his head kinda flops around if I move too much. Please and Thanks!

Re: Baby Wearers

  • I find the moby the best bc I can cover her head with the fabric at the top until she closes her eyes otherwise she gets very distracted.

  • DD always sleeps when I wear her in my Ergo (still with the infant insert although I might ditch that soon. I actually try to time wearing her with when I think she's ready for a nap because otherwise she ends up sleeping too much during the day (if I wear her between naps then she falls asleep anyway) and not so great at night.

    I have a solly baby wrap (similar to a Moby but thinner material so it isn't as hot) and think that it's great with LO. That way he was nestle himself into whatever position he prefers (he still likes getting into a little ball) and I can shade his face from bright lights by covering his head with the fabric.

  • Another vote for the Moby.

  • I was hoping for suggestions other than the Moby haha. I was very challenged by it and returned it.
  • DD loves the ergo and naps in it a lot. Still with the infant insert. I love it too. I tried the ktan but she's not a fan.

  • DS sleeps very well in the Baby Ktan but doesn't do so well in it when he's awake. I think it's too confining for him when he's awake. I also have the Beco Gemini which is good awake or asleep and has extra head support if you need it.

  • I have a boba wrap (which is exactly like the moby, just lighter material) and my LO loves sleeping in it. I can cover her head to give support too.

     I was challenged using it too, until I watched a ton of YouTube videos of people showing how to put it on. Now I cant live without it :)

    You could get the K'Tan. It's basically the moby without the wrapping.

  • I guess I can give wraps another chance. A thinner Moby type carrier sounds like it could be the answer considering I live in Arizona...it gets a bit warm here.
    The Ergo is already on my list of Must Haves I just wanted to wait until he can be in it without the infant insert. Which I think he's there he's such a rolly polly!

    If he has good neck control you can probably ditch the infant insert. I'd check a few different kinds of Ergos in person because they are a few different types/materials that might work better in warm weather. I have the organic which I like a lot, but I can see it getting toasty in the summer, and it gets much warmer where you live than where I do. :-)

  • I have a beco Gemini and love it. It is a soft structured carrier so it is easy to get on and off, no crazy wraps to learn. I can nurse DD in it and she always falls asleep.

    Yea Ive heard of them! They are out in Scottsdale I believe? I'll have to check them out, thanks!

  • They have a scottsdale and a PHX location. The PHX is 7th st and glendale.  

  • I too vote the Moby or some other woven fabric wrap. I feel like the fabric not only covers his head, but it gives a bit of support to his head.

    I also have a Gemini and love it. My SIL recommended it to me and she'd nurse while walking down the streets of NYC. hahaha We love it in our house. It's easy for me to share with DH who is a good 14" taller than me or even our family who want to wear him.
