Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable I purchased this for my baby boy, I live in a area with many hills and sometimes the thought of pushing a stroller up the hills made me not want to take him out for a walk, with my new ergo I'd just strap him in and gofor a walk..it's very comfortable and cute. I love it and my little one always falls asleep in it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great carrier, but not for smaller framed women! All in all, this is a great carrier but just not for me! At 5'4" and 120lbs, this carrier is a little bulky on me and just isn't that comfortable. I ended up purchasing the four position 360 as well and absolutely LOVE it! If you are on the smaller side, I'd say definitely go for the 360 instead of the original. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game-Changing Carrier, but consider your climate Pros: Unbelievably comfortable (4 mile walks +), adorable, quality fabric, extremely comfortably for baby, stores well for travel or in closet, my favorite carrier hands-down. Cons: Might not be the best for women with extremely large breasts (DDD +), individuals who sweat easily, takes practice to learn how to put on and take off efficiently, will be too warm for baby in hot and humid climates during prolonged use. Comparisons: SO much more comfortable than the Baby Bjorn and better for baby's hips, but not quite as easy to take off. Much easier to use, comfortable for parent, and sturdier for extended walks than the Baby K'tan, but does not fold up as small or compact for travel or storage. Wishlist: This EXACT carrier, but in the performance fabric with the same buckle for warmer weather. Best carrier on the market, however, beware if you are planning to use this somewhere extremely warm and humid like Florida. I've found this carrier is ideal for indoor use, and weather under 85 degrees. Otherwise, I think there's a risk of overheating the baby. We took this carrier on a recent trip to Disney World in Florida (temperatures randing form 70s-90s) and everyone agreed it was super useful and comfortable, but after 30 mins we would take baby out because she seemed quite warm. I do know Ergobaby makes a performance carrier that is supposed to be better for longer walks and hotter weather, however, upon reading reviews I decided not to get that one because the waist/hip strap is made of velcro and I LOVE this buckle strap- also a lot more likely to last through several children. This is the only carrier I like to use (yes, after being gifted two others) and I'm so glad it seems sturdy enough for the daily 4 mile walks baby and I take and still able to last multiple children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute & comfy I bought this today after renting one last week. So easy to use, my little pumpkin loves it (when she isn't in tantrum mode) and the whales are so sweet! I love that if I were to have another child this design would work for either gender!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love my ergo baby I have really been enjoying my ergo baby. I just bought my first one with my 4th baby. I have used several different kinds of carriers, but this is by far the most comfortable. My favorite part is how evenly distributed the baby weight is. I feel a little on my shoulders, on my back, and my hips. The only thing that bothers me is the infant insert is so hot. I had a summer baby, and feel like every time I put him in there he is burning up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this carrier! I bought this carrier hoping it would help ease some of the stress on my back from carrying my chunky boy. It definitely has helped. I have a serious back injury and this makes is easier to distribute the weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features Excellent for everyday use. I use my ergo baby when I'm cleaning the house, going on family trips and doing my daily walks. My baby is nice and snug inside. Love the pocket to hold my things and the head cover to block from the sun. I can't live without my ergo baby.
