Is the Moby wrap useful after the newborn stage? Someone told me the fabric is not very supportive on older babies. My son is almost 6 months old and I was thinking of getting one. Should I bother?

Here is the link for the back carry. I mostly loved it because it featured a toddler who was resisting at first. So I knew I could handle this carry on my own. My daughter was starting to resist being in a sling until I introduced this carry, now she gets excited when I pull out the moby. I am a working mom, so she loves being on me whenever I am home, so in order to get anything done a sling is a must---even at 3 days shy of 18 months (disclaimer-she is a little bit, not even 21 lbs). www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFLhddgIEIQ

i think it will work just fine. however, now that warmer weather is near i won't be wearing mine since it gets SO hot here. i'll be using a mei tai instead :)

Do you have a link to that You Tube video Janine? I'd be very interested in improving my Moby tying situation if I have another baby :)

I love my moby and my daughter is 17 months old! I just used it for a back carry while traveling through airports. Though I did not use the carry described on the Moby website...that is way too hard by yourself. I found a different carry on youtube. I have solved the stretching issue by washing it. I got the moby when she was 6 months old and I think I have washed it 4ish times. I am sure something a little more supportive is nice but I already have ring sling too...not sure how much longer I'm going to be wearing her. Good luck with whatever you choose.

I wouldn't bother.. I'd get something more supportive like a mei tai or soft-structured carrier.

I concur - Ergo all the way. I stopped using my Moby at about 6 months (but I loved it til then!)

By the time my daughter was 6 months she wouldn't stay still long enough to be put in and out of the Moby. I'd second the suggestion of the Ergo. Our daughter is 20 months, around 30 lbs and we are still using it.

My son hated the Moby. But he loves the Ergo and I do to. It has great support for me and him and lasts up until 40lbs. If your son is already 6months I'd try the Ergo or something like your back will love you.

i got a moby when my daughter was about 6 1/2 months! It worked great for about a month and now that she is crawling she doesn't want to be in she wants to be able to look around and I don't like her foward facing i'm afraid she will fall out. but it still works great to put her to sleep!!! or if I'm out somewhere during nap time I just let her sleep in it.

I am curious too! I know a mom who said that after a few months, her Moby stretched out and isn't useful anymore, while another friend still sometimes uses her's for her 1-year-old.
