Baby wearing

I would like to try baby wearing. We never did with our first but I would like to try it with our second who is going to be making his entrance in about 2 weeks. I was wondering what people thought about the Moby wrap or the baby k’tan wraps and which one people preferred? I’ve looked up some things on them but I thought I’d ask on here.

    I used a Boppy comfort fit carrier. It is so soft and my daughter was always comfortable in it and I could do whatever chores around the house with her in it. It didn’t need an infant inserts or anything either.

    I use the moby and love it! My daughter is 3 months old and I’ve been using it since birth. She falls right asleep as soon as I put her in, which allows me to take her anywhere with me and she remains happy. The fabric seems like it might be too hot for summer, is my only concern.

    I used a Moby wrap with all three kids. I loved it! It was spectacular to be able to take the kid with me wherever I went with no issues. I just put a few diapers in my back pocket, a bottle of milk in my front pocket, the kid in the wrap, and we were out the door. We were on and off public transit in a flash. The kids loved being warm and bouncing most of the time. It was also really nice that if the kid was in the mood to scream the two of us could easily duck out at restaurants or wherever for a walk around the block bouncing and cooing until everything worked out. I found out pretty quick that if I wore a Dickies hoody one size to large for me it went right around the kid. They were snug and bundled. I got called in as a bearded man with possibly a bomb under his coat once, but after we got the cop calmed down, it was no big :) I probably watched a youtube video six times to learn how to do a front carry with the first kid. I never did master the back carry, but that would've been cool! For freedom of movement, and lots of independence, I think wraps are great!

    We tried Moby, k’tan, wild bird, and ergo 360! Our favorites were the wild bird (when he was tiny until maybe 2-3 months) and then the ergo 360. We had really high hopes for the ktan because it looked so easy to get on, but we just ended up preferring the ring sling style of the wild bird. I think we probably would have loved the moby if we had taken our time to learn about it, but the wild bird was so easy that we just always ended up choosing that. Plus, they have really beautiful colors/patterns (it sounds silly but I mean, it’s basically half your outfit most days!).

    I absolutely LOVE my Moby wrap! It seems like my baby is in that 24-7. If he’s mad, Moby. If I go anywhere, Moby. If my husband isn’t home, Moby. 😂
