what parents are saying
great way for both dad and i to carry the baby. comfy and easy to use! we love the hood for sun protection or to keep light out of the baby's eyes while he's sleeping (Sep 30, 2014)
This weeSpring favorite is ergonomically-designed (get it? Ergo!) to distribute baby's weight evenly and shift the heavy lifting from your shoulders to your hips. Dozens of weeSpring moms have said it was the only carrier they could really get comfortable in. So you can stroll (and stroll) while he dozes or takes in the sights. Their newborn insert means you can use it from day one. And its versatility to a side or back carrier means you can use it to lug a 35 pound toddler around town. You and your tot are already attached at the hip, why not make it Ergo official?
P.S. Ergo makes a great baby gift; it's one of the most popular picks in the "My Registry" weeList.
Machine washable, really sturdy, high quality fabric and stitching. Fits both mom & dad really comfortably while keeping baby snug. Only downside is baby always faces inward instead of outward.

Thus baby carrier is SO easy to use & works with an infant insert for smaller babies as well. It's not super tricky and can be adjusted in less than 10 minutes - 5 once you really get it down.

I love that the Ergo has padded straps. Both of my kids have felt secure and comfortable in the Ergo. Personally, I liked the Bjorn until 6 months but then found this one to be more comfortable after.

We have the 360 degree carrier and we love the versatility of the product. Infant insert is great! We have yet to use forward facing since our babe is only 6 months, but we can't wait to try it out.

The ergo is a life saver! It frees up your hands which means you can get things done around the house or errands. It's comfortable to wear and fits most body frames. Even my husband loved wearing it!

It is much more comfortable & feels safer than Baby Bjorn Original. It also keeps baby's legs in an M shape, as well as offers several different wearing positions. I wish I had this when my baby born.

I love this. Perfect for shopping, walks, etc.
If you breast feed, you can easily do it. Your kids can go o for back once they at big enough. When they are itty babies, you have to have an insert.

Very comfortable and distributes baby's weight so you don't get a sore back. Can wear longer than a wrap. Easy to put on once you get the hang of it. I wish it had forward outfacing carry.

I had the infant insert but I regretted buying it. I wasn't successful using the Ergo until the girls were older. I wore them on my back like little baby backpacks. It was a great way to shop with 2!

I had an Ergo and after wearing both my kids it would make my back hurt. My youngest is not heavy, I just think it's not the right carrier for petite women. My friends have said similar things.

A fantastic baby carrier with not only comfort and safety in mind but also positions baby to avoid hip displasia! Also easy to put on and the cushions in the straps help keep the wearer comfortable.

Adjust the chest clip location. Each piece slides up and down on the straps. You want it higher up on the straps so you can reach it in a front carry. If you are doing a back carry, pull the chest clip down so it is lower on the straps and they land on your chest. :)
I found the top latch to be tricky when i'm doing a front carry. I pretty long and flexible arms, so if i loosen the male piece all the way, and hold the female piece with my right hand to stabilize it, i can get it in with a little bit of reaching. I've also had my husband or 4.5 yr old daughter close it for me, or in a pinch i've even asked a stranger.
Make sure that the strap is really loose before putting it on and also make sure that you slide it up or down to be at the right placement for you. Once you put it on, reach behind your neck and it shouldn't be too hard. Then tighten the strap and you are done!
