When you can make the same thing yourself for a fraction of the price?
We have a small problem in that our boys won't be able to fit into their baby carriers until they are 8 lbs. Which will probably be another 5 weeks awake or so. The solution? My mother in law saw a woman in the grocery store who was carrying her baby in a pretty fancy looking wrap. When she asked the woman what it was, the lady said it was a Moby Wrap (see below). After looking it up, I was pretty impressed...until I saw the price. Anywhere from $40 for the base model to $70 for the fanciest one!!! I don't think so! But the more I looked at the pictures, the more I realized that it was just a really long piece of fabric. That's it. One long piece of fabric.
I looked up "make your own moby wrap" online and sure enough, the directions said to buy 5 yards worth of fabric, cut it in half length-wise, and use. Hemming optional. Seeing as how I was on bedrest, my mom went out and got the fabric for me. Tonight I remembered that I had it so I cut off the salvage, cut it in half, and I now have Levi cozily curled up in it, snuggled up against my chest. And boy oh boy is he a happy camper! You can even carry both twins at the same time in this thing, at least for a little bit! I haven't tried out that particular trick yet, but I'm sure I will soon!
Here's to refusing to pay retail price!
