Baby wearing :)

 Also, I'm in the market for a new carrier. DD is 7 months old, very active, and 16lbs. I've tried the moby, and it was okay, but I'm not comfortable wearing her any other way than the hug hold. No matter how tight I wrap it it still feels like she's going to fall over if I lean forward. I was thinking maybe a Mei Tai, but I'm not sure yet. Any advice?

I only have the moby I don't really like it though it hurts my back, but I agree with you on it not feeling tight enough. I am in the market for a new one, but I am having a hard time.

I had a friend that made me a version of a wrap- one of those ones that you could wrap any way you want (the brand name escapes me, its been years since I've worn a baby!).

There may be someone else that can tell you the name of it, because I seriously have no clue :/

Possibly a Moby? It's a wrap carrier.

So I decided to look, and I went to target.com and I found this infantino swift baby carrier it is 15.99 I read the reviews and they all say it is a really good carrier, you should check it out. My computer wont let me copy and paste so if this doesn't work I am sorry.

No, it wasn't a Moby. The one she made me was customizable- I wrapped by baby all kinds of different ways and different holds. I use wrap and sling interchangably, so it might not have been a wrap by conventional definition.

It might be good for tiny babies, but from what I seem just in the pictures it's not good for older children for extended periods of time. To face out the babies are left "dangling at this hips" and cause higher instances of hip dysphasia.

Do you happen to remember how she made it?

I don't. I know that she started out doing it for herself, then expanded it to close friends- I don't know if she still does them, because her kids are older, but they were sturdy and comfortable. She'd go to a craft or fabric store, take pictures with her cell phone of the fabrics they had, and ask you to pick whatever one you liked.  The one she made for me was that stretchy jersey material, and it was good quality because it didn't get all streched out of shape.

I *think* they may have videos on YT about how to DIY. Or on craft sites. I know you're gonna need a ruler for sure, because measurements are important- don't know if you need a sewing machine.

How are they left dangling at the hips? And the baby doesn't have to face out in the carrier they can face towards you also.
