I love the Ergo

Posted

Pros: comfy for me and my child; easy on and off; easy to set down sleeping child

I used the Ergo with my first until he was nearly three. He preferred to be on my front most of the time, right up till the end.  We used it for grocery stores, walks, travel (so great for airports!) and some epic hikes.  I am now using it for my second baby, age 3 months.  She was too big for the newborn insert (birth weight 11 lbs, 4 oz and the insert goes to 12 lbs!), so I had to wait longer than I wanted to use the Ergo.  We used it with her legs "frog-legged" inside and a receiving blanket beneath her bum for several weeks, now she rides the regular way.  She seems to greatly prefer the Ergo to the Moby Wrap or ring sling because she can look around.

Well-loved for different wearers and wearees

Pros: good for dad to wear, good for mom to wear, good for babies, good for toddlers

Cons: may not be best for very young infants/newborns

The last time I used it with DD2 she was 2.5 years and I was hiking with her in Colorado mountains. It worked fantastic! I've also seen it on a blog about parents who carry their...

Indispensable parenting tool - comfy too!

Pros: Comfortable for parents and baby, hood for sleeping, easy to adjust

Cons: infant insert works but is awkward and hot, can't face outward

We tried several carriers and the Ergo baby was the only one that really was comfortable for both me and my husband and our daughter too.  She is 21 months now, and we still find the Ergo indispensable at times.     She didn't like to be swaddled as an infant, so slings and wraps that impeded free movement of her limbs didn't work at all.  There were times when she really wanted to face outward, and we had a cheap infantino carrier a friend got at a yard sale which we would use for those times, but it was very uncomfortable for me and bad for baby's spine to be carried that way too much.  We used the infant insert (the heart-2-heart insert) until she was...
