The Fauxby

I needed a hands-free way to keep Jack securely attached to me while I chased after Carter, and thus we have become BIG fans of the Moby Wrap (stay tuned for a 'review from a mom' post on the Moby).

The Moby is essentially made out of sweat-shirt material, though, so it is pretty warm. Luckily, I found this amazing bamboo wrap (I call it the Fauxby :) made by Loveyduds. It is incredibly light weight, and the organic bamboo material is the perfect alternative to the Moby's jersey knit in warm weather climates!

As you can see, we're big fans! :)

The only complaint I have is it is cut a little long for an average frame. I can easily wrap it around my waist to tie it in the front and I'm STILL constantly tucking in the ends so they don't drag or get caught on something.

Tip with the bamboo wrap: DON'T FOLD wrap when you put it on. Tie it on as tight as you can completely unfolded otherwise the lightweight fabric becomes bunched and twisted because it doesn't have the bulk to keep it laying flat in the folded state (if you use the Moby, you know what I'm saying).

I love my Moby...although Rich is really too big for it now! But it was great when he just wanted to be held all the time! :)
