Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference! I was part of a trial group and was given this style in order for me to review. I have another Ergo but will be selling it as this one is far superior. I find it to be more comfortable with the added back padding. I currently have a 6 month old and she fits so nicely in it. I got this Morher's Day weekend and we went for a hike. It was comfortable and I didn't feel any discomfort after hiking a couple miles. The only thing I feel this is missing is a zippered pocket for my things. I liked the older model because I could safely put my cell phone and a credit card or cash in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Versatile Birth and WELL Beyond carrier! I have had the pleasure of using my Adapt for a couple months and it's a new favorite go-to for buckle use in our house! I cannot recommend it highly enough. I can officially say it is the first soft-structure carrier I recommend to families with newborns, as the newborn setting is so perfectly ergonomic and comfortably seated without any extra bulk. It works well for my chunky 2 year old as well, with a simple adjustment that takes less than a minute! With so many options this is a custom-fit carrier any time you use it. Ergobaby, you've completely outdone yourselves! Bravo!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great carrier, worth every penny A great carrier which is very comfortable to use. My baby is still small, he's 6 weeks old and weighs just over 10lb, but the carrier distributes his weight evenly over the shoulder and waist/hip straps. I've carried him in the Adapt for up to 2 hours and both he and I have been comfortable. my only complaint is that the carrier's material does seem to attract fluff and dust. I bought the Adapt in black so it does show. However as far as I am aware the entire thing is machine washable. i would also recommend the winter cover which has kept my baby very warm and snug on our long walks in the chilly weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! So happy The Ergo Adapt is a very unique carrier with so many wonderful features. I love the adjustable seat which supported my 3 year old, 38" son, my 14 month old 30" 1 year old daughter, and a borrowed 3 month old. The padded waist belt is great for support or to help conceal 'muffin top' when using in the back carry position. As a size 24/26 US, I had plenty of strap length and loved the addition of cross able straps for increased comfort and for easier use with limited arm motion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best carrier that I've tried I got a preview of this amazing carrier through the Club Momme event and it is love. It fits so well and is so easy to adjust. I can fit my (tiny) 8 month old daughter and my toddler with ease with some quick adjustments. The straps are very comfortable as the padding is long enough for my shoulders. It is breathable and flexable. All around great carrier and design!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A game changer! One of the more frequent things I do as a babywearing educator and consultant is to help caregivers with small babies use their newly-purchased buckle carrier with their newborn. Newborns often come in a package with sleep deprivation, spit up, and adorableness, and I'm a huge fan of teaching caregivers of newborns to wear their babies as they navigate the fourth trimester of infant development. Buckle carriers are often sold as a easy, "plug and play" solution to carrying one's baby; however, many carriers equire modification through the use of inserts in order to fit a newborn; others, while stating that an insert isn't needed, fail to achieve the current standard of "legs out from birth" that US educators teach, or provide the correct support throughout baby's torso that is critical to newborn safety and development.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The rest of my previous review The first part of my review is titled "A Game Changer"; it got cut off when I submitted it. The Ergo Adapt changes all of this. There are a couple of similarly excellent carriers on the market, but Ergo’s reach promises to make this a carrier that will allow many many parents to carry their children safely and comfortably from birth through toddlerhood. The Adapt adjusts easily to carry different sizes of children. The integrated lumbar support provides additional help for the caregiver in a front carry, and the ability to wear the straps either crossed or “backpack” style allows a lot of customization for different sizes of wearers. I helped fit a parent with a 10# newborn, and she was comfortably legs-out, while mom enjoyed the freedom of not having extra insert padding. I wore my own 23 month old toddler in it on both my front and back, and the Adapt shone here as well. As educators, we advocate that older infants and toddlers be supported through the legs so that their knees are on level with their bum; at its largest setting, the Adapt fit my toddler from the back of one knee to the back of the other, and allowed him to comfortably ride with arms tucked in (no leaning!) when the headrest was buttoned to its top setting. The Adapt is a winner in my book, and while not every carrier is a perfect fit for every caregiver’s needs, the Adapt promises to be a fantastic option for the needs of a vast majority of caregivers who want to carry their baby in a no-fuss, easy to find, and comfortable carrier.
