Friday Favorite- The Moby
When I had Genny in 2008 I bought a sling (now recalled) which enabled me to be somewhat hands free while still 'holding' her. I used it when I went shopping, walking, and depending on what I was cooking or cleaning, I used it when I did those things as well. Then a neighbor let me try her Moby. Wow. I borrowed it for almost a year. During that time, I was able to do more around the house (I remember washing my floors by hand while using the Moby) and the one sportish activity we found we are able to do as a family (hiking) is a breeze when using the Moby. When I became pregnant with Glenn, my mom and sister bought me a Moby. He's almost four weeks old and I can't even count how many times I've used it.
The Moby is a super long piece of fabric which you wrap around yourself in a specific fashion as to hold the baby in securely. There are several different 'holds' in which to carry your child, and there's even a 'twin hold' for moms with two babies. Every time I wear the Moby out, I feel like I should get a commission because people who have never seen a Moby ask me about it, and I am pretty sure there have been a few sales because of me. My favorite passing-by response is, "Yah, it's nice cause I'm hands free!". That really makes people think.
As stated in previous Friday Favorites, I do not get anything for writing about my favorite things. These are just things that make my life easier and I like to share them with you in case you think using them can make your life easier.
