READERS’ CHOICE | Moby Wrap
A close second to the Baby K’Tan for “Best Newborn Carrier,” this wrap-style carrier is regularly praised by babywearers – especially for colicky babies. The Moby is basically one long piece of fabric that you wrap, twist and tie into a soft, comfortable carrier that parents swear by. While it definitely takes practice to get the hang of, we really liked it once we did. Read more about it under our “Best for Newborns” .
(On the fence? Hundreds of Amazon customers gave it one of the highest ratings of all baby carriers.) Read about the different Moby Wrap styles here.
