what parents are saying
Great for heavier infants because of the back support. (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.
I received this at my shower. My baby slept in this carrier as a 6 week old on a short hike and back. At 3 months, 23 inches and 16 lbs, she fits awkwardly in it and cries. Might try again later.

My litle one is not one year old and I have used this since he was born. Love how it grows with him. Takes all the pressure off my lower back. Have used for around the house all the way to hiking!

My husband and I both use our ergobaby. It fits fantastic and is easily adjustable. The fabric is washable and extremely durable. The only downside to this carrier is that it is hard to use in heat.

It’s very comfortable & snug! It gets a little warm in a hot and humid environment. Lots of designs & prints to choose from. Fabric is durable & it’s machine washable. No back pain during long hikes.

A good baby carrier is a must! This one is light weight, simple to use, and easy to wash. Only negative you can't turn them around which is why I had to buy a second one. Get the one you can do both!

I got this one when my oldest was just a few months and it became my husband's and my favorite. It's very well made, supports the baby or toddler. Easy to wash and clean and helps out your back.

I have a total of five carriers now due to a very fussy baby that hates being put down. This carrier is extremely soft and comfortable, but I found it to be a little tricky putting on by yourself.

We actually returned this. I found the setting to splay my daughters hips out and she looked uncomfortable. It's quite bulky with all of the material and neither one of us was happy wearing it!

This baby carrier is really comfortable. It does not causehip dysplasia (which many carriers can), it has great storage, a nice head cover, and several different carrying postitions. Even dad likes it

It’s good for a small baby, but the back provides minimal back and head support after about 4 months. For about the same price there are other carriers out there that have more carry options.

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.

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!
