When I found out I was pregnant, I made a list of all the projects I wanted to get done before the babes arrived. I got about… a fifth of that list done (thank-you bedrest!), but my intentions were the best. One of the things I’d planned to make myself was a fake Moby Wrap. I have a couple friends who have them and they are so handy and (I heard) comfier than a traditional baby carrier. When I found out we were having twins, this jumped to near the top of my list as you can wrap two babies in one wrap!
This is barely a DIY it’s so easy, so I’ll spare you the details (it’s basically one long piece of fabric). You can find a full tutorial here. I snagged a full bolt of fabric for $10, enough to make 4 wraps… one for every new mama I know!
I tested it out at the pumpkin patch a few weeks back and Miss A loved it! With moving and everything, I’ve yet to find the time to try it out with two babes… but I did find this hilarious video of “how to” use the wrap for two babies. Seriously, this almost makes me pee myself!
I’d say this DIY is a win!
As for a fail? I also had a nursing cover on my list. I saw this tutorial for a gorgeous jersey cover that doesn’t shout, “hey! I have a baby on my boob”. It was a super simple DIY (again, barely…) and looks great, but maybe I need to work on this nursing thing because the material is so drapey (is that a word?) that it gets in the way, and I’m not nearly coordinated enough to latch the babes without being able to see.
I ended up borrowing my girlfriends Hooter Hider and I’m much happier with it.
Win some, lose some- right? What else should I put on my list? I’ve pretty much thrown the existing one out the window… I got most of the things I’d hoped to make as shower gifts. Including this super cute chevron diaper tote! Like it? Check out the Spooner Sisters’ Etsy shop!
