and my husband knows all about it. I wish I was introduced to Moby 4 years ago.
When I was taking Abby to the doctor last week, a girl on the elevator introduced me to Moby. What is Moby? A Moby wrap. She had her baby all wrapped up and snuggled against her chest and she was basically hands-free while I was struggling to carry little ol' Abby in her carrier. The girl told me to buy 6 yards of fabric and go to Mobywrap.com for instructions on how to use it. Last Saturday we all went to the grocery store. You can't fit 3 kids and groceries into a grocery cart so I was carrying Abby as Stephen pushed the kids in the cart and there she was again, the girl from the elevator. She must not have recognized me because she again told me to go to Mobywrap.com and I confirmed that she was the girl from the elevator. The next day we went to the website and found that the starting price to buy one is $40.00. I printed the instructions and we headed to Wal-Mart where the stretchy cotton fabric was on the remnant table for $1/yard! I finally washed it and followed the instructions and realized the width of this 6 yard fabric is WAY too wide. The dimensions are not on the website so I sent out an S.O.S. email to the moms' group at church and I could not believe the response. Apparently another blogging friend just found out about them too because all the moms in her playgroup have one. Here I am cutting down the material with my little helpers. The actual dimensions are 5 yards by 24 inches. You can get 2 Mobys out of one purchase. I think I'll give the other one as a gift.
I got lucky, this fabric just happened to have lines on it so it was so easy to cut the width that I needed.
Voila! I don't want to take it off. Abby is sleeping on my chest and I have 2 hands to type.
There is one thing I don't like about it though...it frees up my hands for housework too!
