Touch is vital to healthy infant growth & development
By design, Moby Wrap baby carriers provide babies needed physical and emotional contact, while offering parents hands-free security. You will often see "Moby-wearing" parents or caregivers gently comforting, patting or stroking babies with their free hands. Recognizing this instinctual response, Moby has teamed up with Infant Massage USA in an effort to increase awareness of the importance of touch.
