EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Keep your baby nice and close with the MOBY 2-in-1 Carrier + Hip Seat. This can be used as a carrier or hip seat in seven different positions, so it's really going to grow with your child. There are two parts to this product. First is the hip seat that has a hard structured seat to support your baby, and then if you want to wear this as a carrier, you attach the removable panel.

If you want to use it as a carrier, you have four options. For babies 4 months and up, use it inward-facing or hip-facing. For babies 6 months and up, wear it outward-facing or on your back. This carrier distributes baby's weight to the padded shoulder straps and waist belt, making it comfortable to wear. When using in inward-facing mode, there is a removable UV 45+ hood to provide sun protection to baby.

As a hip seat, you have three options, all for babies 6 months and up. Wear it inward, on your hip, or outward. The click-and-go design makes it easy to get older children in and out.

In a nutshell, to wear, Velcro and buckle the hip seat around your waist. Position it in your preferred hip seat mode and pick up your child and position him according to the mode you're in. Or zip the removable panel onto the hip seat, position it in the mode you want, pick up and place your child, and follow the instructions to slide your arms through the straps and tighten.

And there are convenient storage pockets so you can easily take your phone or a small toy along with you and keep it in easy reach.

Why Is It Useful?

This is a bit different from the MOBY wraps you might be familiar with. It's a little more structured than a wrap or sling, but it still provides multiple ways to wear and help encourages parent/child bonding. We were actually surprised at how easy it was to put on and get baby in and out. This is an easy, convenient, and comfortable way to wear your baby and toddler.

Who It’s For

You can use the MOBY carrier with babies from 12 pounds to 45 pounds, so around 4 months to 48 months. For parents, it is one size fits all.

What To Be Aware Of

This is machine washable.

There are video instructions for how to wear on the MOBY website if you find the picture instructions to be confusing.
