ERGObaby is a family owned and operated company out of Maui, Hawaii. It is their goal to educate parents about the baby wearing lifestyle, attachment parenting and related topics to improve the way our next generations of babies are introduced into the world.
The Ergo carrier is different than other carriers in many ways. The Ergo carrier places most of your babies weight on your hips, not on your lower back. Because of this, you can wear your baby for very long intervals of time, giving you the freedom to remain active while wearing your baby close. ERGObaby’s design supports a natural sitting position for babies, eliminating compression of the spine and hips that can be caused by unsupported suspension.
When we received the ERGO carrier, I wore it all day on and off. I have back issues and Lil’ Pea’s weight was pushed to my hips, rather than my back which allowed me to wear Siena for a much longer period of time. Because she truly enjoys being held at all times, she was more than happy to hang out in the ERGO. I was quite intrigued with the ease of moving the carrier from a front carrying position to a back carrying position with Lil’ Pea still in the carrier. It took just a few seconds and she really seemed to enjoy the new carry position.
The adjustable shoulder straps and waist belt are made with 1 inch, high density foam, allowing for superior comfort. The waist belt also has a safety strap, giving you and your baby a little extra peice of mind. The ERGO carrier will accomadate any mom or dad from 5 feet to 6 1/2 feet tall and comes in a choice of colors and designs. The ERGO also features a side zippered pocket and a sleeping hood that adjusts in length. We really liked this feature because it allows for a comfortable sleeping environment keeping your baby safe from the sun’s harmful rays. We also loved the fact that you can breastfeed in this carrier, making it more convenient for you and your baby.
The ERGObaby carrier is really overall a quality, durable carrier that will allow you to carry your little one from newborn to 4 or 5 years old depending on your little ones weight. However, you will need to purchase an infant insert to use the carrier from newborn to 4-6 months. The ERGO recommends a weight limit of 40 pounds (our 4 year old weighs this), however it has been tested up to 90 pounds! All of your questions can be answered by visiting ERGObaby’s FAQ page. Oh and I just wanted to mention how amazing their customer service is… these ladies are really nice!
ERGObaby also has some amazing accessories that attach to the carrier creating a complete hands free system, including the the front pouch, the backpack, sucking pads and weather cover. If you have an older child who wants to be just like mom, ERGObaby also carries teeny tiny doll carriers for your older children to wear with their dolls. The ErgoBaby carrier is up for grabs for $105 at www.ergobabycarrier.com.
