  • i loved my Moby wrap. My son was very clingly when he was a baby, and would not sleep unless you were holding him. I could wrap him up and carry him and still have both of my hands free. We had both that one and the Baby bjorn, and my son vastly preferred the moby. You can use it different ways as they grow. it took some practice, but it was so nice!

  • Boobies! lol

    Well...that's what my babies preferred most. : )

    I also got good use out of my wrap. My babies never like the swings or seats much, they'd tolerate them for a little while but they spent 9 months being inside you, they're best comfort is to be near you and to hear your heart beat. This is why I loved my wraps and slings.

    Best piece of "equipment" was my camera. So many precious moments that I now have saved forever. They grow so fast, I love looking back and seeing how they've grown.

  • A sling type carrier such as a Sleepy Wrap or Moby was for me at least, the most essential piece of optional baby gear. The swing was wonderful, but if I had not gotten it as a shower gift, I would not have bought it for myself. If you are breastfeeding, the second most important thing is a decent pump and storage bags for the milk.

    Baby tubs are not essential as you can always bathe your little one in the sink. I just put a thick towel in the sink to cushion it and we're good to go.
