Rated 5 out of 5 by from The absolute must have!! Our Ergo has become a part of my daily attire for the past 13 months. I couldn't imagine getting anything done without it. We have a very busy 6 year old & the Ergo allows me to keep my 13 month old happy while tending to his big sisters needs. I use the carrier in all 3 positions for hours on end sometimes. My son is 27 lbs & quite tall, but neither of us are ever left uncomfortable while using it. I would also like to say that I am 4'11'' while my husband is 6'6'' & we are both able to adjust the Ergo to fit us properly. Trust me that you can not say that about any other carrier! I can not say enough how much I am in love with my Ergo!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true godsend for mommies! I have purchased every type of carrier (moby, EZSling, Baby Bjorn - and the list goes on) and I must say that out of every single one the Ergo is the best by miles... I can nurse in it, we walk together in it every night... I've had my three month old in it since she was a month.. I seriously do not know what I would do without the ergo. However I do not recommend buying the newborn insert... Just use two receiving blankets folded up! Not to try to take business or purchases away from Ergobaby but the newborn insert in my opinion just doesn't work very well, and my baby didn't like it at all. Coming from someone who owns every type of carrier - BUY THE ERGO!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable for baby and mom I owned the Baby Bjorn originally, but my son seemed to hate the positioning. After researching further, I learned Baby Bjorns are not ideal for healthy hip development because all of the baby's weight is distributed in the crotch area with the legs extended straight. Because my son has hip dysplasia, this was very concerning to me. I returned the Bjorn and purchased the Ergo Baby. Not only is it incredibly simple to use, my son LOVES it. He can easily fall asleep when nap time rolls around and we're out and about, and it promotes healthy hip growth as his weight is in his bottom with his legs in a frog like position. This is one of the best baby items I own!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hands free livin' I have to admit, my son did not take to the Ergo right away, but I think as soon as her realized he was close to mom and not trying to be swaddled he was okay with it. Whenever we are out and about and he needs to take a nap, I put him in the Ergo and he falls asleep. My husband will even wear it because it is a neutral color. We have used the Ergo in airports, taking walks, at BBQs, naps, etc. The best is when he sleeps in it and I can get a few things done around the house. I gave this four stars because it can be a bit tricky sometimes to clip the top clip when doing a front carry, maybe I just have small arms, I don't know. I would recommend this carrier to any mom who is starting out with baby wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money! I tried pretty much ALL of the "fabric wrap" carriers in the market, and NOTHING compares to the ease and comfort of this carrier. Although I used gift cards for the purchase, I believe that I would have been ok with paying the price if it was coming out of my pocket. Its worth it, just to get things done around the house when the baby is fussy. I tried the infant insert, but only ended up using the pillow part to give my son that extra lift at 3 weeks old. He is really good with keeping his head up, and the support of the carrier alone helps too. So no need to carry that bulk if not necessary. But the pillow works great on its own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Amazing Than I Expected! I bought this a month or two ago and I couldn't be happier! I bought one of those "wraps" to carry my baby before she was born. To our surprise she weighed 10.5 lbs at birth! By three months she doubled her weight to 21 lbs and using the "wrap" was out of the question. It just didn't feel secure. My friend's chiropractor recommended this to her, and in turn she recommended it to me and I LOVE it! At 5 months, my baby girl weighs 30 lbs and I wear her every where we go. It doesn't hurt my back at all! I am SOOOO glad I bought this! I recommend it to everyone I see!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from literally perfect I bought this when my son was a month because my infantado to (spelling?) killed my back it was terrible! That and I wanted something that was going to be able to grow with him. absolutely can not live without my ergo especially when shopping on my own and its also super easy to nurse in ( I'm quite chesty 38 e) it just takes practice :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big baby! My daughter is now 10.5 months and 23lbs! Still no problem wearing her and she LOVES IT! it's about the only time she lets me snuggle her these days and although she is a nosy girl has no problem facing me because she has so much room to look around. Thank you ergo baby!
