  • Great carrier from birth (insert needed) to toddler when you can wear on the back. Easy to wash- blowouts while child was being worn and the fabric is cooler and gives decent back support. Oct 19, 2020

  • I have had this since my 5 year old was born and it is fabulous. Its great for when you don't want to bring a big old stroller around or when its cold outside and want your LO close to you. Oct 02, 2020

  • I love that it fits my husband better so he carries baby. I'm small and he's bigger. This carrier feels sturdy, has pockets and a little cover that helps cover baby for nursing/the sun. Sep 30, 2020

  • Great for warm weather baby wearing! Jul 27, 2020

  • A baby carrier is a must. Can be used for special bonding time with baby. And can multi task around the house. I love the front pocket for my phone. Jun 10, 2020

  • I have tried several carriers and this one was my least favorite. The straps are bulky and uncomfortable and I could never get this adjusted right to feel comfortable. Mar 09, 2020

  • My daughter loves being in a carrier, never complained and seems to be comfortable. Would recommend strap covers due to her chewing on the straps. Legs sometimes get marks from straps. Mar 02, 2020

  • It’s a back saver! The only trouble I have is buckling the back clip, I need someone to help me. Feb 29, 2020

  • Baby is nice and secure but it's bulky and gets hot. I'm petite so it feels too big on me. I do love the pockets and the sunshade /privacy panel. I hate that I can't forward-face baby in it. Jan 29, 2020

  • useful for transporting baby outside of a stroller. I don’t love putting it on. Jan 19, 2020

  • Slightly cooler than the original ergo carrier, but not much. Do like that it has mesh to help baby’s body breath a little better. Jan 01, 2020

  • So nice to use this and be hands free, very supportive and easy to use by yourself! Also great for my husband when he wanted to carry our son and bond! This was the only way to calm my son down. Nov 28, 2019

  • Most comfortable of all carriers, I could wear it all day. I used it mostly w/ infant insert when baby was smaller. Now he prefers to face out but I’ve lent to a friend (who loves it!) until baby #2 Nov 23, 2019

  • Liked it but didnt feel like it allowed for my son's legs to really have some freedom. I felt he was pinched a bit. He is also a big kid, so I have to believe that is also to blame. Nov 02, 2019

  • I recieved this as a hand me down and liked it but not for long wearing. My lillebaby is better for extended hours of wearing as it has a pad for lower back Oct 30, 2019

  • I have this and gave it to gramma as her primary carrier. The pockets are roomy and the carrier is low profile. She uses it for hiking and everyday use. The downside is no lumbar support. Sep 19, 2019

    Wish I had gotten one where baby can face forward. This always leaves me and baby sweaty and there are so many straps hanging down all over the place. Sep 13, 2019

    Cant wait to use it on my baby when theyre older. Doesnt like newborn insert but i like its design Jul 06, 2019

    Love but wish it had forward out facing option like the 360. Otherwise comfortable & easy to use & clean. Relatively cool on hot summer days. Jun 21, 2019

  • I Bought this specifically because either I or the baby get sweaty when baby wearing. I like the mesh to keep everyone cool. Apr 28, 2019

  • I love this for summer hikes. The air flow is nice but you don’t lose any support compared to the original ergo. Mar 07, 2019

  • This was a miss for us. You can’t have your child facing forward, which I wish we had known. He also never really liked being in it. I know some people swear by these, but just didn’t work for us. Feb 13, 2019

  • Easy to get on when alone. Baby seems very cozy and comfortable. I am a plus size woman and this has plenty of wiggle room with adjustable waist band! Feb 06, 2019

  • This carrier is amazing! The ease of wearing it is great and I know she’s sitting correctly. I use the hood all the time to reflect the sun as we live in NC and it works well. Aug 07, 2018

  • I did NOT like this carrier. While its easy to use, the mesh part on the shoulders is so irritating to the skin. You also can only wear it forward facing towards you as far as I know. Not worth it. Jul 02, 2018

  • This is much better than the original ERGO that we also have. It is lighter so both parent and baby don't sweat, yet still warm and comfortable. Jun 26, 2018

  • Used this carrier a lot when my baby was little. Super comfortable for me and him. No complaints! Jun 15, 2018

  • Lightweight and cooler option that the original. I never used the hip carry, seemed too finicky. I don't wear much anymore(30lb, 3 yo) but I'm hanging on to this in case of zombies May 03, 2018

  • Comfortable carrier for both wearer and baby. Fabric dries quickly and tends to be slightly cooler than some of the other options. Front pockets surprisingly large to pack snacks or extra diapers, etc Apr 20, 2018
