I purchased the Moby Wrap this past week on recommendation from someone I met in Baby Talk classes. Originally I was looking at purchasing a Didymos, however, I was having trouble finding a Canadian retailer (shopping in Euros can be expensive especially once shipping is factored in).
The Maya Wrap is a ring sling and perfect for beginner wearing and hip wearing later on (so I am told). The Moby Wrap and Didymos are fabric slings made of one piece of fabric and are more versatile with more even weight distribution. Now that Rylyn is getting bigger (probably around the 10 lbs mark), I was looking into a wrap that met these requirements.
The short of it? We tried the Moby Wrap for the first time today. Ry definitely feels secure and she fell asleep almost instantaneously! She is now asleep in her wrap as I type. Which brings up another concern...Lil' Bean has been sleeping all day...she had better save some for tonight or I may be blogging during the twilight hours too.
Here is a picture of Rylyn and I in our Maya Wrap. Feel free to comment about your Baby Wearing experiences or wraps you like to use.
James 4:8 (New King James Version)
8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
-When Rylyn is upset I can draw her close to my heart in a wrap and she settles. When we are unsettled and need a friend, if we draw near to God he can settle us with His Peace. If we are not unsettled, we gain security and intimacy in our relationship.
