ERGObaby Carrier Review and Giveaway!



Ahhhh, another babywearing post. It's been too long. It's funny, the older Chunky Monkey gets, the more I want to wear him! Sniffle. He's getting too grown up! Luckily, ERGObaby has us covered!

The folks over at ERGO were kind enough to send us an organic chocolate ERGObaby carrier to review. Let me tell you what, before I could even get my hands on it, Tom snatched that bad boy up, and claimed it as his own! This carrier is DEFINITELY Daddy friendly!

I first want to share a few of the organic ERGO specs, so you can see what this carrier is all about:
  • 100% organic cotton with 100% organic cotton sateen lining and hood
  • 100% cotton batting in body of carrier to soften edges
  • One inch, high density foam in shoulder straps
  • Quarter inch high density neoprene foam in waist belt
  • High Quality buckles tested by SGS
  • Waist belt circumference from 25" to 43"
  • Fits from 5' to 6.5' body height with adjustable shoulder and chest straps
  • Sleeping hood with elastic, adjusts in length for growth of baby
  • High quality webbing, matched to carrier color
  • Reinforced stitching used at all fabric intersections
  • Interior rip-stop reinforcements at critical intersections
  • Durability/strength tested up to 90 pounds
  • Machine washable - cold, gentle cycles, mild detergent, no bleach. Dry in low heat
As all my pretty little stalkers readers know, Chunky Monkey is NOT petite. He is a rip roarin' 31 pounds of solid chunky goodness. While we loooove babywearing in this house, it MUST be a good, sturdy and comfortable carrier. ERGObaby fits that bill! The organic cotton is extremely soft. I've felt a regular ERGO and the organic is much more soft and squishy. The carrier is very simple to use. While it can be used for front carries, we mainly use back carries because of C's size. I am happy to report that our ERGObaby makes him feel pretty darn weightless!

Daddy & Monkey! Excuse the wonky arm. He ALWAYS puts it out like that!



The waist of the ERGObaby is nice and padded, and very comfortable. It really helps to distribute the weight, and is very comfy. It's very simple to adjust from person to person, too. The shoulder straps are also padded and very comfortable, and there is a chest clip that helps keep them in place. One of my favorite features of the ERGO is that is has a fairly tall body, which is great when you have a Jolly Green Giant for a toddler. As you can see, C fits in it very well. There is also a sleep hood, which can be used for discreet nursing, or to support the head if your little one falls asleep. When it's not being used, it can be tucked away into the pocket! Very handy!

Looking cozy and sleepy!





We have used the ERGObaby carrier at home, and out and about as well. We have been extremely happy with it's comfort and durability. My good friend Sarah even used it with her 37lb 3 year old at the zoo for a few hours, and thought it was very comfy, too! And if you have a newborn, there is an infant insert so that you can use your ERGObaby from day one. So this one carrier can get you from birth through toddlerhood! 

Daddy and C dancing!
