ERGObaby Review and Giveaway

I love babywearing.  I simply adore it.  I've been wearing Tiny Man since he was only a couple weeks old.  He loves it too, he likes to be close to mommy and he loves being held, so wearing is perfect for him!  I've only really used a pocket type sling up to this point.  I used a hip carrier with Talker Man and could never get the fit quite right and wasn't looking forward to using it again.  Needless to say, I was more than excited to be given the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier for you all!

We were sent the organic twill navy carrier with midnight lining and a silver organic heart2heart insert.  I wasn't sure if we would need the insert or not, he just turned 5 months old.  As much bigger as he is than his brother at the same age, he's still a bit scrawny.  When I tried it, it worked well both with and without, but I found that using the insert helped "fill up" the Ergo a bit more, making it look like he was just a bit more comfortable.



Either way, my little man loved it!  He snuggled right in and made himself comfortable.  He was almost asleep and when I went to take him out to let him sleep he woke right up!  He would much rather be close and cuddly.  I haven't tried the back carry yet, but I'm looking forward to using that this summer and in the upcoming weeks as we go hiking and to the various summer festivals.  I feel much more comfortable with my little guy physically on me than I do having him in a stroller at this young age. 

I found the carrier very comfortable.  I'm about 5'2" and had no problem with it being to big or bulky or otherwise uncomfortable on me, I thought it fit nicely.  Hubby was going to try it out to give a guy's opinion, but the waist strap was just a bit short..we would need to get the waist extension for him to be able to wear it.  That's okay, though, I do most of the carrying anyway!  I love that it's virtually an all-in-one carrier.  You can wear it in the front, on your back and even on your hip!  I wish I'd had one of these when Talker Man was small, he loved being carried too!  I'm sure he would still fit, he's a tiny little kid, but I don't think he would put up with it very long, he's very independent these days!

Here's a bit of information from ERGObaby on their product!

"The ERGObaby Carrier is a great way to carry your baby. Your baby loves to be close to you and to feel your heartbeat and movements. The ERGObaby Carrier’s ergonomic design supports your baby’s natural seated position, eliminating compression of his/her hips and spine. The carefully researched design also supports your posture by distributing your baby’s weight between your shoulders and hips, thus allowing you to comfortably carry your baby for hours at a time.

ERGObaby is the ultimate HandsFree baby carrier for all babies, from newborn to toddler, and can be worn in the front, back, or hip positions. ERGObaby is the best way to support your baby and your lifestyle."

Win it!

eww! I just learned that wood furniture is much better (aside from just quality!) than plywood or particle wood b/c composite woods like plywood and particleboard are made from glues that contain formaldehyde, which is slowly emitted in vapor form as its host materials age.
