"Newborns AND Cloth" Moby Wrap Review and #GIVEAWAY {Lil Roo's} US and Canada

Many of you know that I love to wear my babies! I have tried an Ergo, Boba and now a Moby thanks to Kelli at Lil Roos! Here is a bit more about Lil' Roo's (taken from their website):
"We are a Michigan based company specializing in Baby Carriers. Currently we feature Action Baby Carrier, Moby Wrap and Wrap n' Wear.

If you have a newborn, toddler or just new to baby wearing we have every kind of baby carrier you will need to enjoy the outdoors, clean the house or just bond with your little one, here at Lil Roo's.

Our goal at Lil Roos is to offer unique, comfortable, stylish baby carriers for the most precious time with you and your little one, bonding time."

She graciously sent me a Chocolate Moby wrap for review!
This is what I received:

It is such a beautiful wrap! I was so impressed at how soft the fabric is!
The wrap comes with some simple, easy to read instructions on how to use the Moby:

The website also offers some great instructional videos on how to use this carrier!
You can view the videos here!
I put my 22 month old in the Moby and he loved it!
He was a bit squirmy at first but after walking around a bit with him, he settled right down!
Isn't he a doll *swoon*
I totally intended to get a picture of my sister carrying Ezra in her Moby while I was visiting her in Oregon... but with 3 kids under the age of 3, a newborn, a sleep-deprived mommy and daddy it just didn't happen!

Here are some other great pictures of parents using the Moby:




Here is a bit more information about the Moby wrap (taken from Lil Roos Website):
Moby Wraps are the optimal baby carrier for infants. Parents of newborns have found that skin-to-skin contact with their infants, which can be easily achieved while wearing a Moby Wrap, leads to faster regaining of birth weight. Moby Wraps do not put a lot of extra material or bulky padding between you and your baby. This allows your baby to hear your heartbeat and find comfort in the warmth of your body within the cuddly confines of a Moby Wrap.
One size fits all.
The Moby Wrap can hold newborns up to 35 pounds comfortably.

I (regretfully) never wore either of my boys when they were newborns! In fact, I didn't get my first carrier (the Ergo) until my youngest was about 9 months old! How I wish I would have known about all the benefits to both mom and baby that occur as a result to baby wearing!
Read what the La Leche League International has to say about baby wearing here.
Dr. Sears also weighs in on baby wearing (you can read about that here)!
Lastly I found a great article from the "Baby wearing International" website describing the benefits of baby wearing!

So what are you waiting for?
I am waiting to get pregnant again so I can fully use the Moby with a newborn! I can't wait!!

As a sponsor of the Newborns AND Cloth event, Kelli has graciously offered one LWML follower a chance to win a Moby wrap (in solid color subject to stock availability) of their own!

This giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents! A winning Canadian resident will have to pay $8.00 shipping to Lil Roos!
