ERGObaby Carrier Review and Giveaway

There is no better feeling in the world than holding your baby close. ERGObaby carriers allow you to have a constant connection with your baby, all while maintaining a great feeling of freedom and security knowing your baby is safe.

ERGObabyThe ERGO baby carrier’s ergonomic design supports a natural sitting position for the baby’s hips, pelvis and spine growth. It disperses most of the baby’s weight between the hips and thighs and helps prevent compression of the spine. The ERGObaby carrier also alleviates physical stress from the parent by balancing the baby’s weight between the parent’s hips and shoulders.

ERGO baby graciously sent me the black with camel lining Ergo baby carrier from their Original ERGObaby collection.

I love that my ERGObaby carrier is so versatile. It can be worn in the front (belly to belly), on the back and even on the hip. The high quality of my carrier is very impressive. It is strong and durable and most importantly it is safe. This is my first baby carrier. I have always been curious but I have not been able to find a stylish carrier that I was comfortable wearing on a regular basis. That is, until I tried ERGO baby. They have many fun and stylish carriers, along with neutral and solid baby carriers.   

My ERGObaby carrier is extremely comfortable for me . There is no back or neck strain, no tension, no pain - even when worn for an extended period of time. ERGObaby is easy and convenient to use. I simply snap on the waist strap, place my baby in the desired position, then pull shoulder straps in place. I was very impressed that I was able to install the carrier myself. My son seems to be very impressed with our ERGObaby carrier as well. Normally he stays awake while we are out and about, but with the soothing motion from being on my back while walking, he is quick to fall sound asleep. When that happens, I simply position the head wrap so his head doesn’t move around.

My only regret is that it has taken me so long to discover ERGObaby. Each time I wear my carrier, I think back to the many times I was stuck lugging around a baby carrier by hand, or carrying my hefty child only to be sore throughout the night and into morning. Now that summer is here, I plan to use my carrier on a regular basis. It is such a relief to have a hands-free, comfortable, convenient carrier for both my son and I.
