With the Moby wrap, there are several variations in the way you wrap it and how you place the baby inside.  Also, I wrap it so that the pressure is on the hard part of my shoulders, rather than the area between the neck and shoulder like the Bjorn.  I find it to be much more comfortable because of that, and because the fabric is so soft.

I've heard the sling is supposed to give better weight distribution but I do still get a bit of a back ache when I'm doing a lot of walking with him in it. I do like that it collapses down so much though. Without all the straps and metal supports it is quite compact.

What are the advantages of a sling to a front pack? I use a front pack for short periods when doing the housework  but find that it gives me a sore neck and back when bending over etc.

Some but not all! I did the natural childbirthing (he was sunnyside up and it took forever!) and am doing cloth diapering. The co-sleeping not so much, although I do bring him to bed with me in the morning and sometimes when we're having a rough night. My husband doesn't sleep well when he's in bed with us though. I made my own sling (per instructions on the maya wrap site) and I use it when we're out and about but not as much at home.

Yeah I think it is 30-35 lbs.  You change the way you put the baby in it as they get older/bigger. My son is 14lbs and I cart him around in it all over the place.

Quoting Autumn:

I use the Mobywrap.



Up to what weight is the Moby Wrap practical? I have a carrier right now that I don't like very much, but my baby is almost 15lbs. I would like to try a different one.

Good for you. My mom did all of those things and homebirths also (my sister & I were both over 11lbs), I did not get to. I had to have a c-section due to my baby girl being breech, I was too far along and she was too big to try aversion when we found out. I'm hoping for a VBAC the next time, maybe even at home...I did not care for 4 days in the hospital.

Babywearing is basically just carrying your baby around in a sling.  Some people do it all day long, I use the Moby wrap when he's awake and wanting attention when I have stuff to do or when he's really fussing a lot.

I'm on my 6th cloth diapered, breastfed baby. All of them have slept in our bed sometimes. We go with whatever gets everyone the most sleep. :)

I had everything ready for a natural homebirth..Down to buying my own tub and had the birth kit, and everything! Ended up at the hospital before I went into labour, with a c-section. I breastfeed, cosleep, we're working on babywearing:) and I use naturebaby diapers. No plastics!! Rock on:)
