There are many different baby carriers on the market today: front packs, slings, wraps, mei tai’s and many more. The big difference between slings and wraps is that a wrap uses both shoulders, as well as your back, to distribute the weight of your baby. Slings are worn diagonally across just one shoulder placing the weight of the baby on that one shoulder. Some front packs have narrow straps, buckles, or rings, which can cause discomfort or can bend/break.
There are several wraps available with a variety of special features; stretchy vs. non-stretchy, cotton vs. cotton lycra blend, solids vs. patterns, basic vs. embellished, expensive vs. economical, square vs. tapered ends, etc. Moby’s advice is to look at the features that are most important to you and choose your baby carrier accordingly. The Moby wrap is made of 100% soft cotton. The edges are tapered, making it easy to tie. Moby wraps are currently available in a wide variety of solid colours, designs, UVs and organics.
