Sling Demo- Moby

A couple of people have mentioned that they would like some tips on using slings so I thought I'd do a little video! Or a few little videos so show different methods of carrying with different slings.

This is the first one. It's a basic carry using a Moby stretchy wrap and can be used with any stretchy wrap. I carried Jess in this carry almost exclusively from one week until about six months. It's really easy to use and excellent for when they are tiny.

The important thing to remember is that the material should be well spread out and not twisted over your shoulders to spread the weight and the material under the babies bottom should be spread from knee to knee.



  1. This is brilliant Louise! This is exactly the way I carried Tommy and forgot how :)
    Although Rozzy is a big girl like Jess now, she still likes being carried a lot, do will dig out my sling now. I want big 'well dones' if you see 'me in a sling, ciz am so uncoordinated it will take a few attempts to not have any feisty buts. Thanks for the video!

  2. My iPhone is responsible for all those typos! Feisty buts should read twisty bits!

  3. I quite like feisty buts! Glad you like it though!
