Safe Babywearing

The reason my wife and I really believed in the Ergobaby Baby Carrier is that the baby was always kept in the safe hip position and was flexible enough to absorb the shock of walking making it safe for the spine as well. The 360 Baby Carrier is a further advance in safety because it maintains the same hip position whether the baby is facing inwards or outwards. That way, the parent can have the choice of if and when to face the baby outwards and not compromise an infant's spine or hip safety.

About

Four ergonomic wearing positions, including our first forward-facing carry option for you and baby to discover the world together in ultimate comfort.

Carry Positions

Age: 0-24 months

  • 0-4 months (7-12lb): Must use Infant Insert (sold separately)
  • 4-24 months (12lbs–26.9lbs): Without Infant Insert - Use once baby can sit knee to knee in a frog-leg position in Carrier

Ways to Use:

  • Everyday use

Benefits:

  • Baby close and kissable
  • Can nurse easily
  • Baby faces in to avoid overstimulation
  • Hood can hold a sleeping baby's head and provide shelter from sun and wind
  • Baby's weight leans towards your center of gravity making her feel lighter

Watch-outs:

  • As baby gets heavier, front carry can strain the back
  • Curious babies sometimes prefer a front seat view of the world (facing out). You know your baby best

Age: 5-12 months

  • 14-22lbs

Ways to Use:

  • Best for babies who are ready to face the world
  • Recommended for limited durations (10-15min) of carrying time

Benefits:

  • Baby has a front seat view of the world and can satisfy their curiosity
  • Co-viewing situations (ex. zoos, aquariums, short walks) where parent and baby can engage together

Watch-outs:

  • Baby must face you until he or she can hold their head upright
  • If your baby appears to be sleepy or overstimulated, turn them around immediately to an inward-facing position
  • Baby's weight pulls away from you which can make it feel heavier, so we recommend varying carrying positions as much as possible

Tip:

  • Use "selfie" camera mode or a mirror to check on your baby

Age: 6-24 months

  • 17.2lbs–26.9lbs

Ways to Use:

  • Best for around the house

Benefits:

  • A great hands-free way to carry your baby
  • Good for when your toddler wants to be picked up
  • You have more space on one side for doing household chores or reaching

Watch-outs:

  • Baby's weight is completely on one side of your body, so we recommend varying hips and carry positions as much as possible
  • Takes a bit of practice to master this position

Age: 6-36 months

  • 17.2lbs–33lbs

Ways to Use:

  • Best for longer treks, hiking, or extended wearing

Benefits:

  • Baby's weight leans in making him/her feel much lighter than using other positions
  • Baby has great visibility of the environment around him or her
  • Baby can turn in towards parent to avoid an overstimulating situation
  • Great carry position for an older baby or toddler

Watch-outs:

  • Takes a bit a practice to master this position
  • Never carry baby outward facing on your back

Tip:

  • Use "selfie" camera mode or a mirror to check on your baby
