One of the hardest things about being a first time parent is all of the guesswork involved in decoding baby's cries and understanding their needs. Over the past 2 months we've learned that our son is quite the cuddler and while he didn't seem to care too much for swaddling, he loves cradling, motion, and feeling the repetition of breathing. The Moby is so great for that because it allows babies to get closely nestled in to the carrier's chest and even fall asleep in it without any uncomfortable straps or buckles getting in the way.
The manual that it comes with explains how a mother's chest is designed to change in temperature to meet her baby's needs by responding through biofeedback. It therefore rises if the baby is cold, and decrease if the infant becomes too warm. How cool is that! It also comes with a series of exercises and Yoga poses that are safe to do while carrying the baby in the wrap.
