Our Infant Inserts (sold separately or included with Bundle of Joy) are designed so that you can safely and ergonomically carry your baby from early on. The Ergobaby Infant Insert was designed for use with babies from infancy to age 4-6 months (from 7-12 lbs) , or for babies more than 12 lbs but younger than 4 months or without strong and consistent head and neck control. It is designed to provide head and neck support and to ensure your newborn is correctly seated while in the Ergobaby Carrier.
The Infant Insert is designed to grow with your baby. The top rounded edge of the back and neck support padding can be folded outward to provide more padding and neck support for smaller infants.
The bottom pillow in the Infant Insert can be removed from the Insert and placed inside the carrier, with your baby sitting on top of it. Use of the pillow alone is for babies who are either too short to bend at the knees when seated in the Carrier or would like to be seated higher in the Carrier.
Use the shell of the Infant Insert without the pillow for larger or taller babies who still need head and neck support.
Once your baby can hold her/his head up for long periods of time and can be seated comfortably in an ergonomic position in the Carrier, the use of the Infant Insert is no longer necessary.
