dustin LOVED the moby as a baby. if he was crabby i wrapped the moby and put him in it and in mere minutes he was fast asleep. my dad called him spoiled. i call him loved. :0) and a tad bit 'spoiled' but spoiled is in the eyes of the beholder.
i have never been talented to try nursing wearing the moby, but i've heard about it being done. i may have to try that with this baby. but i have worn and walked for walks while carrying a baby. and it works great for that. i've gone shopping and wrapped up baby. and again perfectly. what i like about it, is that the baby can face inward or outward. so there are options. i have never done a back or hip carry but apparently those are done as well. i just need someone to show me those, and then i think i'd feel more comfortable with those holds. it also doesn't hurt your back. which is another must have feature for me. i've worn it literally for HOURS and have not had any increased back pain. ((i have back pain to begin with, so something that does NOT add to it..is super nice!))
i always tell my friends who are having babies how they NEED to have the moby wrap. it's so super nice. i love it. and i made sure to buy one for my sister when she was pregnant with aryssa. i truly think it's a newborn must have...
which is why...the dotty moby wrap up you saw up there...is getting shipped out today. WHAT!?! you won it. selfishly asked for a patterned moby. and you're shipping it out!? yep. that's what i said.
a few days ago on facebook. a super sweet friend was asking her 'baby wearing' friends what carriers they loved. of course, i said the moby!! (( i also mentioned a few other carriers, but since this is about the moby, we'll stick with that!)) a few others seconded and thirded my moby suggestion. and that was that. for a bit. because i thought right away, i could just send her one of mine. i have two. then i decided. no. i want both of them. i just won that one.
then the next day. it kept popping in my head. you could give her the moby. you could sell it to her. you SHOULD JUST GIVE HER THE MOBY. finally i said, OKAY GOD! i GET IT!! and sent an email later in the day letting her know that god truly led my selfish little heart to give her the moby i had won.
so i'm sending it out today. and sharing the moby love.
i'm not sharing this story to look for some sort of recognition or something. i don't need that. but a few weeks ago shaun and i were talking how cool it would be to have something 'big' to bless someone with. like a van. how cool would it be to have a van and just give it to someone you know who needs it? we just thought something like that would be so cool to do. of course we can't do anything huge like that at this point in our lives, but we can give away a moby. and that's what we're doing. so to me giving the moby is like blessing someone with a van. lol. maybe it's a weird comparission. but i totally can see it. :0)
and ps. if you didn't see the last post...the girls were great models the other day..and i encourage you to check out their cuteness. :0) but i'm of course very biased!
