5 Reasons to Choose Organic Skin Care for your Baby.

  1. Organic Brands contain on average 80 – 90% active ingredients. That explains why they cost a little more to buy.  The nice thing is you know that these ingredients are therapeutic, good for the skin and do not contain artificial ingredients like fragrance which has no value to the skin or preservatives which can disrupt hormone balance.
  2. Many mass produced brands contain 0.5 – 6% of active ingredients, the rest are made up of cheap ingredients that have no value for your skin or body which your baby is absorbing into her blood stream.  These ingredients also tend to irritate sensitive, fragile skin and aggravate existing conditions like dry skin and eczema  - but they are cheap to buy!
  3. Opting for organic skin care product means you are avoiding a slew of chemicals that not only irritate your child's skin, but that can also have a negative effect on the body.
  4. Better for the environment because organic farming eliminates the use of synthetic chemicals and fertilizers. Fertilizers and chemicals all have a destructive effect on our water, soil and health.  Protecting the environment for your baby's future.
  5. Your baby only has one body and the skin is his largest organ - it just makes sense to care for it naturally.

Why Organic Matters:

  • Infants are more susceptible to  chemical exposure than adults, says the Environmental Working Group, a consumer watchdog agency that commissioned a 2007 study of ingredients used in personal care products for children. 
  • The study found that children, including infants, are exposed to an average of 27 chemicals daily that have not been judged safe for use on children.
  • In addition, many products contain ingredients that contribute to environmental pollution. Certified organic products contain only ingredients and materials that are grown without chemicals that pollute the environment.
  • They're not only better for your baby's skin, they offer benefits to you, your family and our planet.

Moby Wrap Baby Carrier FAQ:

What size/age range/weight can a Moby Wrap hold?

Moby Wraps can hold babies up to 35lbs., which is typically a 3 year old child.

Can you describe the differences between the Moby Wrap and other carriers?

There are many different baby carriers on the market today: front packs, slings, wraps, mei tais and many more. The big difference between slings and wraps is that a wrap uses both shoulders, as well as your back, to distribute the weight of your baby. Slings are worn diagonally across just one shoulder placing the weight of the baby on that one shoulder. Most front packs have narrow straps, buckles, or rings, which often cause discomfort or can bend/break. There are several wrap carriers available with a variety of special features: stretchy vs. non-stretch, cotton vs. cotton-lycra blend, solids vs. patterns, basic vs. embellished, expensive vs. economical, square vs. tapered ends, etc. Our advice would be to look for the features that are most important to you and choose your baby carrier accordingly. The Moby Wrap is made of 100% soft cotton. The edges are tapered, making it easy to tie. The Moby Wrap is currently available in a variety of solid colors, prints, UVs, batiks, and organics.





What are the washing instructions for my Moby Wrap?

The Moby Wrap is easy to clean. Prewashing before first use is recommended. You can machine wash your Moby Wrap in cold water and air-dry or tumble dry on low. Your Moby Wrap may shrink slightly in the dryer, but will stretch out again after being worn. Please note that the Moby d hand-woven cotton is not color fast and should be washed separately, or with like colors. Moby d Wraps with silk should be washed and handled gently. Washing instructions are located on the back of the Moby tag sewn into your Moby Wrap.

 

 

I washed my Moby Wrap according to the washing instructions and it shrank. Is that normal?

It is perfectly normal for your Moby Wrap to experience slight shrinkage since is made of 100% cotton. We have designed our Moby Wraps with extra length built in to accommodate for first wash shrinkage. If you are unable to bring the ends back to the front, try tying the wrap in the back: Moby Wraps are designed to be tied either at the wearer’s front or back – both are equally safe and comfortable.

 

 

I live in a very warm climate. Can I use a Moby Wrap?

 

Yes, you can. Moby Wrap is made of 100% cotton and the natural fabric breathes keeping you cool in warmer climates. Wearing a baby in any carrier will create extra heat, so we recommend dressing yourself and your baby lightly and keeping exposure to high temperatures to a minimum whenever possible. Additionally we recommend wrapping baby in lighter shades including our Natural Moby Wrap (a creamy off-white), the Coconut Organic (100% organic cotton in an unbleached cream color) or one of our UV styles that offer SPF 50+ protection for delicate baby skin.

 

I am a plus-size mom. Will the Moby Wrap fit me?

Yes it will. The Moby Wrap is 5.5 meters long and will fit larger moms and dads as well. When wrapping, you would simply tie a knot at your back.  The Moby d is 5 metres long, so may not be suitable for a plus-size mum.

 

I am petite. Will a Moby Wrap work for me?

Our wraps are designed to be "one size fits most". The great thing about a Moby is that it completely conforms to your individual shape when worn, so you will be able to achieve an extremely comfortable and ergonomic carrying position for both you and your baby.

What are the working conditions in Thailand where your product is manufactured?

From 2004 until 2006, the founders of Moby Wrap and their family lived in Thailand where they set up a Thai corporation that manufactures the entire line of Moby Wrap products. They found a traditional Thai home in Chaing Mai and converted it into the Moby manufacturing facility. The salaried staff receives great pay, both yearly and production based bonuses, health care and a warm, friendly work atmosphere. Recently, Moby Wrap production has increased beyond the size of the traditional Thai home. The factory has moved across town, in a former textile factory. Most of the original staff is still with us, as well as several new hirers.
