Does anyone use moby wraps?

I'm looking to invest in one, but I've thought about just buying material from the store. Wondering if it should be stretchable cotton or something else.

I've read that jersey can be used- if you poke around online there should be directions for making one, I know I ran across some once on a related search. The retail one has serged (surged?) edges and a tag in the middle on one edge which can be very helpful for locating the center of the wrap, grabbing one layer, etc. It also is a funny shape, being wider in the middle and narrow at both ends. Hope that helps- home-made or store-bought, I'm a HUGE moby fan!

I would get one from Ebay rather than making one. The jersey is very thick and much thinner in width than what you get on the roll. I paid $25 for mine and it's totally worth it. My girl is 20lb now and I still wear her around the house and in stores.
Look into making a Mei Tai instead. I have one of those and it would be pretty simple to make. I think there are free patterns online.

I found the moby great for carrying DD as an itty-bitty, up until about 4-5 months'ish. It's pretty laborious to put on but worth it for the small stage. Any later and baby is too interested in the world outside to want to nestle in full-time to Mummy.

I use a Moby that I got as a hand-me-down. I LOVE it! Having never used one before, I would not have spent $40 on one, but would definitely now. Mainly because I'm not great at sewing! :) My husband even uses it... He takes our 3 month old snowshoeing, and I don't have to worry about him getting cold. Good luck!

Thanks...I'll have to check that out...I just can't see spending $40 on some material when I can pay about $14 for material. Thanks again, I'll take a look.
