New position in the Moby!

Now that Joseph has better head control, he can face out in the Moby! He really likes it since he gets an unobstructed view. I like it, too. We both seem to stay a bit more cool, and he fusses much less.

I am concerned that he's dangling from his crotch though versus the "sitting" position - it looks the same as with the bjorn. I'd tuck his legs in the lotus position, but he really likes them to be out. Any Moby mom's know if it's the same and/or safe for him? We usually don't stay in it this way more than 30 minutes anyway, since he tends to get tired out.

I know this is kind of an old post but... first, we have the same Moby, color and all!... and second, that hold is called the "Joey" hold is perfectly fine, provided you make sure that he's in more of a seated position. If his knees are in front of his bum (further away from you than his bum), you're okay. My little one likes this hold when we're out and about looking at stuff (we used it a lot in museums when we were in Washington, D.C.).

I have been folowing your blog for the last couple of weeks and you have gotten me really into cloth diapers and baby wearing. I just have a few questions do you always wear him? Like when he is sleeping do you lay him down, I am just wondering. I think I am going to babywear as well I alreadt have two little ones running around and seems a little pointless to have to carry a 15 pound carseat on top of an pound baby while trying to get up with a 5 year old and a 2 year old

"I just have a few questions do you always wear him? Like when he is sleeping do you lay him down, I am just wondering."

I wear him a LOT. We live in a 3rd floor apt and have a 2 door car, so I wear him to/from the car (we skipped the infant seat and bought a First Years Compass True Fit convertible - it fits newborns). I wear him if he has already nursed but it is time for him to nap (b/c he falls asleep easily in the carriers), I wear him when I go out shopping anywhere (we only just got a stroller, and it's a jogger, so not appropriate for stores), and I wear him if I want to be "hands free". At first he would not consent to being put down at all. Lately he's been getting more independent though, and now he'll play on his playmat, in his bouncer, swing, etc... for periods of time, so I don't wear him quite as much. He can also sit up (assisted) so we play and read books out of the slings.

Feel free to email me if you have any more specific questions! jenmonn at gmail dot com.

also, he napped on me up until the last week or two. now when he falls asleep i can transfer him to our bed pretty easily and he'll sleep there for naps. That's been the strangest transition of all!
