I bought a moby... used it three or four times. He loved it but I'm not very graceful at putting it on. Now I use a Jeep carrier.

It looks like it, but it isn't. I watched a few youtube videos on a few different ways to do it. But I'm usually walking around with a toddler and a teenager. Moby takes a bit of time, and during that time.. my other kids go nuts.

Ryan really loves being in it though.

I did a no sew Moby and loved it. Wore dd constantly and comfortably. They look a little difficult but after practiceing twice I was a pro.

I wouldn't get a Moby for a 6 week old, she'll outgrow it soon.  I'd get an SSC (Tula, Ergo, Lillebaby, etc), a ring sling or a woven wrap.

I have a sling and I'd much more prefer the wrap for the versatility and comfort.

I just brought a sling. I'm curious to see how it works.

I couldn't get a handle on the wrap with my first baby, so I got a Balboa sling with my second. I really liked being able to have him nurse in it when he was little, but at 20 lbs he's a bit heavy to wear in the sling for long now. I have a Boba Air that he and I both like.
