Moby Wrap in its folded form (a bit big)
I had it bought from the NJ just before I gave birth to him. When I got pregnant, I knew I would want to be close to my baby and still be able to do things around the house and keep my hands free. So I searched online for baby carriers and came across the Moby Wrap.

I picked it out of the rest because I didn't want 'harnesses' or those straps and buckles to be in the way or protruding in a way that the baby would get marks on this thighs or arms. We did receive a regular baby carrier, a hand-me-down from his cousins, and my husband preferred that more because wearing the Moby in a tropical country, not so good especially if you sweat a lot.

Baby wearing is becoming more and more advocated in our country. A lot of Moms and Dads are getting into the baby wearing habit simply because we are getting more educated on the pros of baby wearing, and it creates more bond or attachment between Mom/Dad and baby. There is even a group that promotes baby wearing, the Filipino Associate of Babywearers or FAB. Click the link to visit their Facebook page.
When we traveled late last year, we both had the regular carrier (the brand escapes me! I've put it away already so I can't check.) and the Moby Wrap with us on the plane. The Moby Wrap for Mommy, the regular carrier for Osc. It's a great gear to have when traveling with a baby.
Here's Dad and Jacob on the regular carrier
Osc tried the Moby Wrap out a few days before our trip, and he did use it during our layover in Narita, Japan.

I know the Moby can still be used for Jacob's age, but he's so heavy now! LOL. I had it wash, pressed, and ready for use for the next one! :)
