Some benefits for baby-wearing to me are:
- Jack gets sleep
- Mom relaxes
- my heart rate slows and I breath better
- My Bond with Jack grows
- I produce more milk
Its the most amazing investment that I have made sense I had my son! I swear by this piece of material! Some of the things that I love the most are, it hold up to 35lbs! No other wrap that I know can do that with comfort. That is another thing, its comfortable. My back never hurts nor do I ever feel weighed down. Its a wrap worth investing in, I would recommend Moby to any of my mommy friends and blog followers!

Here are some safety tips for baby-wearing, compliments of my favorite online doctor.
Dr. Sears online at http://www.askdrsears.com/ and on facebook
- While you are getting used to wearing your baby, support him with your hands. As you go through the learning phase of moving and reacting, the urge to support your baby with your hands is instinctive. After you become a babywearing veteran, you can safely carry your baby in the sling with one or both hands free.
- Wear baby cautiously in the kitchen. Do not wear baby while cooking or working with sharp or hot objects.
- Do not drink hot beverages when wearing baby, although wearing baby while eating is safe.
- When wearing your baby and stooping over, bend at the knees, not at the waist, and hold baby in the sling with one hand.
- Toddlers, if worn are at your reaching level, can grab dangerous or breakable objects off shelves. Keep an arm's distance away from potential hazards.
- When going through doorways or around corners, be careful that baby's body does not stick out past your arm and strike the wall or doorjamb.
- Do not ride a bicycle or other moving vehicle while wearing your baby. Baby carriers are not substitutes for an approved carseat.
