Great all purpose baby carrier!

  • Feb 27, 2009
I finally tried the ErgoBaby outside of the house today when we went for a walk with my daughter who is 1 month old. I love it! The best thing is that it works from infant to toddler, no need for multiple carriers as your children grow.

I am not quite sure what I would do without the Ergo baby carrier. It calms a crying baby, it is great for walks outside in the rain with an umbrella (no bulky wet stroller), it is gentle on my back, fits both mommy and daddy, super durable, practical, safe, and just all around praise-worthy!

It is designed by a mother, everything is taken into consideration and it is extremely convenient, fits well (both on me, I am 5 feet, and my husband who is 6 feet tall), distributes weight evenly, and is overall very comfortable. It was a really windy day and the hood came in handy to block the wind even though she is not big enough to put her head in to sleep in it yet. She fell asleep in two minutes!

The infant insert is so handy, I use it sometimes to just lull her to sleep, that way she does not wake up when I put her down. It also keeps her from waking up when transferring from carrier to crib. Snuggly warm in the winter too.

As with any baby carrier, keep in mind though that if your baby's diaper happens to leak, it will likely be on you too, so keep a change of clothes handy for youself also!

I am eager to try the front, back, and side carry as she gets a little older. The reasons I chose the Ergo over the popular Baby Bjorn are:

a) Versatility of age 0-4 (although I am not planning on using it past 2 years old)

b) 3 carrying positions

c) The much healthier sitting position of the child where the weight is distributed on the butt and thighs as opposed to all the pressure on the spine in a carrier like the Bjorn (the same reasons chiropractors advise againsts bouncy jumpies and walkers)

d) I was convinced by other parent reviews who said the Bjorn hurt their back but the Ergo didn'

I have to say- good choice on the Ergo over the Bjorn. The price of the Ergo may deter some, but this product it far more superior to that of the Bjorn. I found the BB to be incredibly uncomfortable and pulling on my neck and shoulders and also stiff and hard on the baby as well. You will love this product. My son is 18mo. old and 27lbs/34in. tall and he loves it and I love it. When he sees the Ergo laying around the house he begs me to put him in it while I walk around doing the dishes or even just putting on my make-up! Great product and I am so glad you love it, too! So glad when we parents can share happy insights and pass them on. :=)

ergo baby carrier- super product-just get it early on and don't regret it!
 This product is  great for new parents or parents who already have kids and need a free hand by confining the littlest one while out and about. I looked at many baby carriers, from wraps, slings and packs.  I started w/a Baby Bjorn and didn't care for it.  It was difficult to use and had stiff material and I found it very uncomfortable to use. Then I moved to a peanut shell and hated it, thought my baby would suffocate in that one. I ended up with a Moby wrap which was tricky …

The Perfect Carrier From Newborn to Toddler
Babywearing is a huge part of our lives. I wear Elijah around the house, especially when I have to do a bunch of stuff. When we go anywhere I never bring the stroller, just a carrier. It's so much easier to wear your baby, and they feel so much more secure, not to mention the benefits that come with babywearing which you can read about on the Dr. Sears website.      I was recently given the opportunity to test out an ERGObaby Organic carrier for our Go Green, Baby feature. I …
