    Beautiful picture Mara! Like Leigh says, it takes a bit at first to figure ring slings out but once you do they're quick and great. Baby has good position in that photo.

    I didn't really use my Maya wrap ring sling very much because I was never sure how to do it right and make it comfortable for me or baby. I plan to break it out this week and try harder to use it. I love the Moby for newborn baby wearing but would like a quicker (one that doesn't involve so much wrapping) option too.

    You can do it! It does take a few tries with a ring sling, but once you get it it's super fast and easy.

    I agree with Jackie. For me it was a lot easier once I realized she just wasn't going to be comfortable with her head supported by the fabric. I just used my arm to support her. Only one arm free is still better than carrying a carseat into the store IMO. Let us know how it goes!

    That's pretty much what I did too. I usually did have her head in a little bit of fabric so I could use my left arm if I really needed to, but mostly it supported her head to make sure her positioning was good. It was so natural to cradle her in my arm anyway, and with the sling taking all the weight, it was comfortable for both of us. And way faster than anything else!

    Ok so maybe I was wearing it right then. I just like that a Moby is so secure that you don't need to really support them since it does so well. Here is a pic with my DD, does this look right? I think from reading what you guys have said the rings may need to be up higher?

    I generally wore the whole baby up higher (I know I posted one pic where she was pretty low, but that was like maybe the first time I ever put her in there...), and yeah, had the rings higher. When she was upright, instead of in a cradle, I'd pull the edge of the material pretty tight against the lower half of her head, and then I didn't feel like I *had* to hold on to her, though of course I usually did anyway.

    Yes, a little--for YOUR comfort.

    Here's a good pic I found:



    I wore my DD a little differently, due to our particular needs, but this is the standard. You should be able to do it the correct way since if your LO likes the Moby, he clearly doesn't mind being carried upright.

    THose pics are really helpful!! Yea from that tummy to tummy pic I need to wear the baby much higher and it looks really secure! That mom doesn't even have any hands on baby! Also after looking at the pic of you Leigh, I really think most of my issue with it is from not having the rings high enough. I tried cradle hold and didn't like it but I am almost sure the rings were just way too low. Now I am excited to get back home and get my ring sling out (we are at my moms currently but will be home tomorrow)
