Opinions of the new ergo? - Page 3

Ds also puts his arms under the straps and has never complained about it!

I think I am ready to buy one of these!
has anyone use the accessories? they have a sale on right now if you buy the diaper bag and the tote... the diaper bag I could use but I'm not sure about the tote, does the carrier fit in the tote? has anyone seen these irl? what did you think? I've been resisting buying a diaper bag but theirs seems nice. also, does everyone buy it from their website or are their WAHMs selling them from their online stores?

The Carrier does fit in the tote bag.... The accessories are originally designed by Karin Frost....the designer and owner of the Ergo Baby Carrier Inc. If you have any questions feel free to ask I am a representative of the Ergo Baby Carrier. INC. Have a great day!!

I just wanted to say that I used my new ergo at the zoo this past Friday and it was WONDERFUL! I have a maya wrap and a mama's milk pouch, both of which my dd absolutely hates! I bought the ergo because I had heard good things about it here on MDC. Friday was the true test.

I wore my 4.5 mo, 14 lb dd in it for 4 hours and nursed in it twice during that time period. Then I wore my 19 mo 24 lb ds in it for about 2 hours. They both loved being next to mommy, and I loved having free hands. No numb arms, no sore back, no achy neck from carrying babies. It was great. Seriously, my back and shoulders did not hurt at all after wearing my kids all day long. It worked really well for all three of us.

Okay sounds like I need to get one! Any suggestions on who has best pricing?

After today I'll do just about anything to get one! We've used the New Native when dd was a few weeks and liked it, but now she's almost 6 mo. and we have Maya and this other ring sling (Can't remeber the name) these aren't working!

I wore the other ring sling today for a couple hours and now I'm paying the price,my neck & shoulders are so sore I feel like I've been run over by an 18 wheeler! Holy mother I never thought I could feel this sore/in pain from a sling!

I've gotta get something else ASAP!~ :

I have to say that the Ergo is my carrier workhorse. I wear my dd for chores around the house and errands because it's so easy to take on and off. DD is 20 pounds (9 mo) and doesn't hurt my back in the Ergo; I can wear for 1-2 hours before my back starts to get a little sore, which for me, is fantastic. I have some other carriers that are prettier (and great for when dd was younger), but the Ergo is the most comfortable and functional for me these days.

In response to some of the other posters' questions: Dd sometimes has both arms inside the carrier and seems fine/comfy. I haven't ever had my arm go numb. I also use my tote all the time, and it's great. I can easily fit the Ergo and a few other odds and ends (like a toy and diaper).

To Tanya, the tote is almost perfect, but I suggest adding a magnetic button (like the kind some purses have) so that I could have the option of closing the tote. It would be a nice touch for when I just have the carrier in the tote--I could toss the tote in the backseat of my car and know the carrier won't fall out (not that it ever has, but I like the idea of knowing that it wouldn't lol!).

Just stopping in to post a pic of dd nursing in the ergo while we were at the zoo. Some people say its hard to nurse in, but we didn't have any trouble.

Isn't she cute! I also posted this pic on the bf forum.

Thats a great idea.....I feel the same way...I will bring this idea up to Karin Frost the owner and designer of the company...And let you if we move forward with it!....Thanks Tanya

I think i'm convinced to get one. I think i'll spring for the new one. Just have to come up with the dough. Can't wait for a back pain free carrying experience. I've even heard that it is more comfy than a kelty backpack for hiking. Any experience with this?

My parents are getting me one for my birthday in two weeks. Though it's a little selfish, because my dad wants to carry DS in this run/walk we do Thanksgiving morning, and when I told him stroller weren't allowed he jumped all over getting the ergo for me (and him) to use!
