Get A Comfy Ride With The ERGObaby
The ERGOBaby is regarded as one of the best carriers around. So why is it so popular? In my opinion, I think it’s mainly because of the softness of the fabric and the design, which makes mom’s back and baby’s body feel comfy. With the ERGO, you can carry baby in front, back and hip positions. However, as always with most carriers putting baby on one’s back is always a challenge alone so I do suggest you have someone help you.
Nice features include well padded shoulder straps and a sleeping hood that adjusts to your growing child. As for the weight limit, it’s recommended to be 40 lbs even though it has been tested to hold up to 90 lbs. Unless you have a giant baby on your hands, this is good enough to hold a light toddler.
If you’re using the ERGObaby for your newborn, the new Infant Insert is a well-designed accessory. It carries the baby facing your chest and has extra cushions to support baby’s back and spine (see photo below). I think this is a good product considering it does give support to a newborn’s wobbly head. Other good features is the front pouch to carry keys, money or wipes and the adjustable waist belt.
Now the prices. The carrier ranges in price from $120-148 while the insert costs $25-38. I know…yikes! Is it worth the money? To be honest, I’m not sure. If money is no object and you want a stylish, comfortable carrier then yes.
