Tushbaby vs Moby: supportive design
Tushbaby: Tushbaby’s hip seat carrier is designed to provide the ultimate support while carrying, feeding, nursing, and even playing with your baby—and it stores all your stuff while doing it. Designed by moms, the Tushbaby was created with safety first and functionality as a must. By strapping the hipseat high and tight above your natural waist, you decrease the pressure on your upper body, neck, and back to prevent shoulder and neck pain while carrying baby. Tushbaby’s plush elevated seat also supports healthy hip development for your baby by placing their hips and legs in the ‘M’ position. The anti-slip fabric patch ensures your baby stays appropriately positioned to promote healthy hip development.
Moby: The Moby brand offers a variety of baby carriers, including wraps, slings, and a hip seat carrier. Since you’re here, we’ll assume you’re comparing the Tushbaby to Moby’s 2-in-1 carrier that can be transformed from a standard double-strap carrier to a hip seat carrier. Just as with any carrier, wearing it correctly is a must for the best support. Moby recommends wearing the hip seat snug to your waist. If you’re perusing the wraps and slings, be sure that you feel confident in your ability to wrap and tighten as needed so that you and your baby stay properly supported.
Tushbaby vs Moby: baby’s weight and age
Tushbaby: The Tushbaby hip seat carrier can be used from infancy to 3 years of age, or up to 45 lbs. From 0-6 months, Tushbaby can be used as breast- or bottle-feeding support. Once your child can hold their head up independently, the Tushbaby can be used in 3 additional carrying positions: side facing, front facing, and face to face.
Moby: The Moby 2 in 1 carrier is intended for babies from 12 to 45 lbs. The carrier can be used starting at about 4 months old or when your baby can fully support their head. The Moby 2 in 1 carrier can be used as a full-position structured carrier or alone as a hip seat. While unsuitable for newborns, Moby recommends the 2 in 1 carrier as a next step after your child has outgrown their Moby wrap.
Tushbaby vs Moby: carry positions
Tushbaby: You can carry four ways with Tushbaby as its versatility allows it to be used through various stages and for diverse needs. Your baby will have plenty of ways to stay comfortable and entertained in face-to-face, front-facing, side-carrying, and even feeding positions.
In the newborn phase, much of your time will be spent feeding your baby. Tushbaby provides lumbar support for proper posture during feedings, while the memory foam-lined seat is the ultimate comfy spot for baby to feed, giggle, and bond with mom.
Moby: The carrying positions will depend on which Moby carrier you choose. With the 2-in-1 carrier, you’ll have a few options, with and without the detachable carrier body. The 4 carrying options are in-facing, out-facing, hip carry, and back carry. Once you detach the carrier structure, the 3 hip seat options are in-facing front, out-facing front, and side hip seat.
Tushbaby vs Moby: caregiver size
Tushbaby: The Tushbaby carrier is designed to accommodate caregivers of many shapes and sizes with its adjustable waistband. Tushbaby’s waistband is designed to fit 23-44 inch waists, and the Waistband Extender can be purchased separately to add an extra 23 inches around the waist for a total of 70 inches. The extender can be a great option to have handy for other family members who may want to use the Tushbaby carrier as well.
Speaking of size, let's talk bust! Because the Tushbaby solely wraps around the waist, it’s the perfect carrier for large busts.
Moby: According to Moby’s 2-in-1 carrier product description, the carrier is intended for parents of most sizes and heights. However, it doesn’t seem they offer a waistband extender if the carrier alone is too snug.
Tushbaby vs Moby: comfort
Tushbaby: Tushbaby’s hip seat is made from high-quality materials so that you can carry your child longer and more comfortably. One of the things that makes it so comfortable is the benefit of having your baby’s weight evenly distributed across your body. As your baby rests on the hip seat, you can enjoy keeping your baby close and supported with one arm without straining your body. Its open design allows your baby to be held close without being too restricted. This also makes picking your baby up and putting them down as needed a breeze.
Tushbaby is comfortable enough to continue wearing even if your baby isn’t on it—many happy customers even refer to it as their “baby utility belt”!
Moby: The Moby is made from a sturdy polyester canvas with durability as a key feature. While we can certainly say how comfortable the Tushbaby is, we can’t confirm how comfortable other carriers will be, as preference and lifestyle are also important factors. This is why we encourage parents to do their research to decide what fit is best to suit their needs.
Tushbaby vs Moby: safety
Tushbaby: At Tushbaby, we know how important safety is for parents, so we underwent rigorous testing and safety certification processes. The Tushbaby hip seat carrier has been approved by global-wide safety standards and verified through SGS testing—a world-leading inspection, testing, and verification company. Our instructional videos can be an excellent resource for those visual learners wanting to ensure safe baby-wearing.
Moby: Like Tushbaby, Moby’s site offers instructional videos and ‘Moby 101’ instruction guides, providing you with resources for safe wearing. Unlike the Tusbaby hip seat carrier, the Moby 2-in-1 does not seem to have an anti-slip patch on the hip seat to prevent the baby from shifting. While we can’t say for certain that Moby has safety certifications like Tushbaby, their site does suggest that they will replace any defective products, free of charge, within the first two years of purchase.
Tushbaby vs Moby: maintenance and care
Tushbaby: As with anything your baby sits in, it’s bound to need some TLC after a few uses. We bet the cracker crumbs in your kid’s car seat will confirm that theory. Tushbaby maintenance is simple. No matter what hits that seat (spit up, milk, mom’s latte, you name it), the Tushbaby can be easily cleaned as it’s machine washable. Just remove the plastic insert, throw it in a cold wash, then lay it flat to dry. For our Black and Sand vegan leather Tushbabies, simply wipe down as needed.
Pro tip: Don’t forget to empty those storage pockets first. Mom brain is a real thing, y’all.
Moby: The Moby 2-in-1 carrier can be washed in a gentle cycle using cold water and gentle detergent. It is recommended to put the carrier in a pillowcase or laundry bag to protect the buckles that come with the detachable carrier. Drying can be done by hanging to dry or using the dryer on the lowest setting.
Tushbaby vs Moby: budget
Tushbaby: With the four different ways you can carry your baby, plus the ability to stash your (and their) stuff, Tushbaby provides you with a whole lot of value no matter your budget. Plus, it doubles as a breastfeeding pillow, so you can use it even more! That makes Tushbaby a breastfeeding must-have for new moms.
For $85, you can simplify your life and travels with the Tushbaby carrier. Tushbaby has five storage pockets which means you can carry your kid, stash your stuff, save your back, and ditch the diaper bag at home—talk about a great bang for your buck. Simply and smartly folded to store and small enough to be stashed in a travel or tote bag, you’ll want the Tushbaby for all of your adventures.
Moby: The Moby 2-in-1 carrier is listed at $79.99 and intended for use from 4 months on. Moby calls out the 2-in-1 carrier as a great ‘complement’ or ‘next-step’ to the Moby Wrap carrier, so you may need to consider your baby’s age and current need when deciding on the best purchase.
With thousands of certified 5-star reviews from around the globe, you can rest assured that Tushbaby’s products will deliver the quality, comfort, and safety you’re searching for.
