Mobyholic Mom of Twins...

It is hard to believe now that there was a point in time when I had not yet been introduced to the Moby Wrap. Once it's exsistence was brought to my attention, it became nothing more than a long piece of intimidating fabric. Except one day, when out shopping, I saw it there on the shelf wearing an imaginary halo and begging me to buy it. So I did what makes my husband cringe most, I wipped out my credit card with reckless abandon and walked out of the store with one more baby accessory.

Since the first time I put it on I realized there was no other wrap, carrier, or sling that could compare. I have had all of the above and always come back to the Moby. My twins are 5 months old and still like the classic cradle hold. We have 2 double strollers but for walks around the neighborhood I always put one baby in the Moby and the other in a single stroller. The support of the Moby is better than any other baby carriers I have used. I can do a 2 hour walk and not feel like I need to see a chiropractor.

My family peered at me very suspect the first time I put it on, but now they can see it as the gem that the Moby truly is. My babies may be growing, but it just makes me excited to try out the different holds that the Moby offers. That is, if I can convince them they are getting too big for the cuddle hold!

James looks so snug and comfy!

I've never tried the Moby but have always been curious. I may need to!

I'm wondering if you've ever tried wrapping BOTH twins in the Moby. I've heard of people using the Moby and other wraps with two babies at the same time. I think that you might be able to find some YouTube videos about it if you search wrapping twins or something similar.

Now I really want to try a Moby. Great story!

Mommy said...

HAHA.. I read my husband the last part of the first paragraph and he said.. Uh Huh..... I guess for us it would be put this way.. Pulled up the paypal account with reckless abandon....:)

Lauren said...

What a sweet picture! I have never tried a Moby, but I want too!

Sara said...

I really love my Ultimate Baby Wrap, but would love to know how it compares with the Moby from someone that has used both. Anybody?

Katrina said...

I too was wondering how it works holding both babies at the same time. My friend had twins a few weeks ago and is interested in the Moby wrap since I use mine all the time for my 1 yr old.

Too cute! Makes me want to try one even more!

AScott said...

I'm glad to hear it is great on your back! That's the main problem I have with my current carriers.

Now THAT is impressive! I am a twin and cannot imagine my mom doing that with us but I CAN imagine it being much easier for her than carrying one of us on each hip!

Ashley said...

i also wonder if you could use it for two babies? that'd be quite a load though! (james is too cute!)

Angela said...

My sister is having twins and I plan on showing her howe to use one.

Oh how precious!! We never managed the cradle hold. It looks so great I am hoping to get to do it with Baby (number three) when (s)he get here. I was just asking Hubby if he thought I would be able to use two Mobys and wrap one on my back and one on my frint. What do you think? No, not so much huh?

Sarah said...

Congrats on the twins!! I have a 5 month old as well!

TheOGMamaBear said...

I've heard you can use the moby with both twins, ever tried it?

Amanda said...

James looks so snug! I know the cringe of the husband! Mine does it all the time....especially when I buy "new" things to try out!

Tanya said...

I love the word "mobyholic." I looks like a great carrier!

Sara in Seattle said...

I'd love to try the moby. Right now I'm just using the more structured carriers, because ring slings and pouch slings just didn't feel secure to me in the past. Your baby certainly looks safe in your moby, though!

Suzy said...

I really want to try a moby, it looks so comfortable for baby and mama

tjandjmkahrs said...

I see a bunch of other asked, about if you can hold both babies. So I just say he looks super snuggled!! ;)

Aisha said...

I have to admit that the amount of fabric is intimidating and that's why I opted for another carrier...that said I'm intrigued about Moby now since it's seems very adjustable (use a structured carrier and DH and I have diff body types)...

Brittany said...

I can't wait to try out a moby when my daughter gets here! Your baby looks so comfortable and secure in yours.

Amanda said...

Oh, the cradle hold looks so comfy for the baby in this wrap....like a little cocoon! (unlike the wrap I currently have....I could never do the cradle hold with it...only the hip carry.) I can't wait to have another baby so I can try this wrap out and hopefully be able to do the cradle carry and nursing carry etc. I really can't wait!
