I'm a dad trying to get the hang of the Moby wrap. I've watched videos and read the instructions, but still can't help feeling like I have to wear my daughter up around my throat just to have enough length in the thing to tie it off.

I'm not a very big guy (5'11", 170 lbs), and I don't have a chest to speak of, so I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Any ideas?

How big is your daughter?

She's about 8.5 lbs.

Are you tying it in the front or the back? If there is not enough length you can tie it in the back, which is what I do for my husband (he is about your size). For myself I tie it in the front.

I have been tying it in the front. That's a great suggestion about trying it in the back.

I have one, but I only used it a handful of times. When I did use it, I found I had to tie it on pretty tight, but that it would stretch like crazy once I put my son in it. Have you tried just putting on tight and squeezing her in?

As an aside, the first time I tried on the Moby, I was so disappointed, because I couldn't come close to being able to tie it. Then I realized that I WAS STILL PREGNANT and after the baby came, my belly would be a bit smaller. :)

Hm, I don't think your second paragraph applies in this case :)

I have tried that. She was not a fan. ;-)
