Re: Sling/Wrap help!
Another moby fan here, as well. I also did not care much for the ring sling.
The moby is a little weird at first because it seems complicated, but once you've done it 2 or 3 times, it's no big deal.
I really recommend going to youtube and googling the various wraps for videos on how to wrap them. Maybe it's just me, but the still pictures never made a lot of sense. I needed to see it in action.
My son was on a lot of equipment at home, so the Moby wasn't the greatest option for him. I guess if there was one benefit to him having been in the NICU for 3.5 months, it was that he was used to not being held 24/7. But I still spent a LOT of hours in the recliner with him because I couldn't do anything else.
My daughter wants to be held ALL the time, though. If it weren't for the moby, I'd probably have lost my mind by now. With a 3.5 year old at home, sitting on my butt in the recliner all day just isn't an option. I figure by the time she can talk and reach the counters she'll be able to cook and clean because she watches me do it all day from the moby.
