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.

  • Q: I'd love advice on what carrier is best for breastfeeding and also what carrier would be good in hot weather. Thanks!

  • Q: Is there a maximum weight with this? I have a large baby.

  • Q: How do people close the top latch? I never feel like I can reach it to close it behind my back!

    asked by Natalie P. - Mar 22, 2014

  • I found it easier with the straps loose. Then I'd go over my head, snap it together and then tighten the straps.

  • 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. :)

  • Loosen the straps.

  • 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.

  • Loosen the side straps and click the shoulder clasp shut first and then slide it over your head. Then put baby in and tighten the side straps.

  • The arm straps must be loose. Then she can reach over head and close the tops buckle and finally tighten the arm straps

  • I was always able to clip it in the back by reaching behind my neck. i always made the strap really loose, then clipped it, and then pulled the tightening strap so it fit properly. hope this helps.

  • 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!

  • Loosening the straps seemed to help.
