I wear my youngest in an Infantino Support, but I would like something more comfortable, for me and him. I might consider a wrap, if someone can point me in the right direction, and tell me they're not as difficult to use, or wrap, as I think they are.
Hey there. I've got 2 mobys and they're fab, once you get into it it gets easy v quickly. I went for a walk with 2 friends with pushchairs the other day and I had her wrapped and ready to go before they'd got their car seats onto the frames!! I know mobys don't last forever though and my LO is quite small but I'm now thinking about non stretchy wraps cos they're meant to be more supportive and can be used for back carrys. So I'd say unless you're planning on having another I'd consider a non stretchy wrap straight away cos you're LO is getting older
Hi I'm a wrapper and I love it! I use woven wraps with my girl (and my son too when he will let me!) and they are so beautiful, versatile and comfortable. It's true that they have a bit of a learning curve compared to other carriers though! And they aren't like a stretchy in that most carries aren't popable - you can't pre-tie then pop baby in and out. You have to wrap them in.
But if your son is almost 4 months old then a woven wrap is a better choice than a stretchy. I find once they are 16lbs or so then the stretchy wraps start to sag and need frequent readjusting. A woven gives you more carry choices (like back or hip) and is much more secure. If you are interested in wraps you can check out the baby wearer - it's a US BW site with a forum (FSOT) where you can buy used wraps. You can also get them online - there's tons of great wraps - didymos, natibaby, giraso, vatanai, ellaroo, just to name a few. HTH!
