Ergo Baby Carrier Review and Giveaway

Update: Giveaway has ended and the winner is #110, Katy.

I have a sort of obsession with baby carriers that stems from our attachment parenting style and is also fueled by all of the baby wearing discussions that I see on thebump.com’s eco friendly family board. I have a few carriers that I love and it’s hard for me to find one that I don’t like. One particular carrier that comes up in discussion boards often is the Ergobaby Carrier. I had heard a lot about it and how comfortable it is and I was very curious about trying it out myself.

I contacted Ergobaby Carriers and they generously provided me with an organic Ergo baby carrier to review. This carrier came to me in the mail within a few days and I was so excited to try it out. (which by the way, is currently on sale) Isn’t it cute?


Design: Ergo baby offers a variety of different designs, so there is something for everyone…even Daddies. They offer a line of Organic carriers that will make your inner hippy smile. They also sell accessories that match the carriers like front pouches, back packs, and infant inserts to be used with young babies. The fabric and materials are high quality and felt nice to touch.

Comfort: At first I was skeptical about how comfortable this would really be. I’ve tried a certain “popular” brand of front carrier and it hurts my back so I never use it. This however was not like that. I can’t think of a single complaint about comfort and I was really impressed. It has an ergonomic design and the padding in the shoulder pads and waist band is thick, squishy and comfy. I’m only 5 foot 1 and this didn’t hurt my back at all! The straps and waistband are highly adjustable and fit a variety of shapes and sizes. It has a recommended weight limit of 40lbs.

Ease of Use: The instruction manual in well written with helpful pictures. It was very easy to figure out and also very easy to maneuver my toddler in and out of. Take the time to read the instructions and adjust everything to fit properly and you should have no problem.

Price: The Ergobaby carrier range from $105-$148

What else you should Know: The company has excellent customer service and they offer a 12 month warranty. You can not put twins in one ERgo carrier although there is a picture on their site of a mama wearing two carriers at once, one front and one on back with her twins in it. Too cute. They also sell Ergo Doll carriers for little ones…how freakin sweet is that.

  1. I like the ergo more than any other carrier out there because I can hold my baby with me up until 40 lbs, and it is a superior design which will be better for my back and my baby's hips and legs!

    I like how the baby's weight is distributed across both the shoulders and hip area. This is great for someone like me with shoulder pains!

  3. Im now following your blog!! I'd love an Ergo – I have fibromyalgia, but my son loves being held. Other carriers I've tried leave me in so much pain! Would love to have his weight on my hips instead of my upper back.
