The Ergobaby carrier is one of the most comfortable and adaptable baby carriers on the market today. Many carriers may be more economical, but can be difficult to put on, uncomfortable to use and after a short period, leave both the parent and the baby needing a break. The Ergobaby’s comfort, safety and natural sitting position make it well worth the investment.
The Ergobaby carrier offers three different positions to carry your baby: in the front, on the side or on the back. Babies sit ergonomically in the carrier, just as they would on their own, and fit snugly against your body. This positioning ensures that both mom and baby are comfortable for long periods if needed and also that baby is not forced into a position that is unnatural. The thick strap on the bottom is snapped around the parent’s waist while the cushioned straps at the top slide over the parent’s shoulders like a backpack and are then snapped together behind the parent’s shoulders. The cushioned straps at the top are very comfortable, even after long periods, and the Ergo itself is very light weight.
Infants under 12 lbs. must use the infant insert along with the carrier to ensure their head and neck is properly supported. The infant insert swaddles newborns safely and helps them to sit in a higher position, allowing them to breathe more easily. While this is the safest way to carry newborns, the insert can make the parent feel slightly warm if worn for long periods. The insert is not included with the Ergobaby carrier as it should be for the price, but is available for purchase separately.
The Ergobaby carrier can be put on without the assistance of an additional adult and folds quite small for easy storage. The front portion includes a sun shade that can easily be snapped to the shoulder straps for discreet nursing, protection from the sun or just the added shade for nap time. This carrier can be used up to 45 lbs. and is ideal for parents interested in baby wearing and toddler wearing. The Ergobaby is durable, safe and comfortable, and is an ideal gift or purchase for any parent.
