ERGObaby Carrier (giveaway)

I’ve carried and worn many babies over the last few years. I had a favorite carrier and was kind of a snob about it not thinking any other brand could possibly be as good. Or as comfortable. And there was no way any carrier could be better than the one I loved so much.
When the twins were little wearing one baby and pushing the other baby in the grocery cart was the only way I could get any shopping done when I was by myself.
When Matthew came along, he did not like the carrier I loved so much. He just could not get comfortable in it.
He loves, loves, loves to be in the ERGObaby. I use it just about every day.
I wear Matthew in the ERGObaby…
  • when I run the twins into school in the mornings or run in to pick them up in the afternoon.
  • when I am desperate to get him to sleep and he wants to be held but I can not just sit and hold him (hands free lovin’)
  • for a quick trip into the store 
  • running errands around town and I do not want to load and unload the stroller 
  • a walk at the park with the kids
You get the idea. I honestly use it just about every day.
At first it was a little hard for me to adjust to the new carrier because I was used to my old one. The first couple of tries I really felt like I was putting it on wrong. But once I got the hang of it, I never looked back. By the time the twins have climbed out of their carseats, I’ve got Matthew snug in the ERGObaby and we are all ready to go!
I know what you’re thinking… Matthew is 30+ pounds are you really comfortable in that?  It is so comfortable that when we went to a baseball game recently, I had to put him in the carrier because he would not sit down. I stood with him in the ERGObaby at the back of the stadium for five innings! Seriously.  
And look, at the end of the game we were still happy and snug!
I wore Matthew in the ERGObaby while watching 5 innings of baseball!
  • super comfortable for mom and baby (my shoulders nor my back hurt from wearing this)
  • you can wear your baby in the front or on your back
  • has an attached head cover for baby if they fall asleep or if the sun or wind are in their face- just snaps right into place
  • toss it in the wash if dirty- no worries
  • padded shoulder straps
  • waist area and shoulder straps are adjustable- mom and dad can share!
  • 100% cotton! (great for Matthew’s super sensitive skin)
  • zipper pouch in the front- it holds my keys and my cell phone and still there is plenty of room!
  • the one I am wearing retails for $105.00

    fave thing about their product is that there is support around the hips and place for children to put their feet.

    I like that they seem really committed to helping you learn to use their product. They have extensive FAQs and even a DVD to show you how to load the baby.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I love that Ergo allows you to carry a heavier baby than most carriers do. This can easily allow you to carry an older child (wear them longer)

    I *love* that Ergo has so many options for making kids and moms comfortable from birth through early childhood!

  14. Missy says

    I like that Ergo offers so many different styles of carriers. They understand that what may work well for some may not work well for others.

    I've never worn an Ergo, but have friends that have one and rave about it. They tell me they are just perfect, but I can't possible afford one. After visiting their site and learning more about them, I love how versatile and long-lasting they are. My little girl is 12 months, still loves to be carried, but doesn't love the sling anymore. And Ergo would be perfect!

    I love that in addition to being so comfortable and amazing, the Ergo is washable. I think that is so huge. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

    I would absolutely love to try their Ergo Performance.
    I love how comfortable and natural it is to carry tots in the Ergo!

  22. Pam says

    Love the performance carriers. They're different from other carriers I've used, but look like they could really hold up – without straining my back!

  23. Madeline says

    I love how committed they are to attachment parenting, and that they have a super comfortable product to help parents and babies bond.

  24. melanie says

    I love that Ergobaby goes above and beyond when testing there products. I wondered what the weight limit you could carry in this. I found out ERGObaby recommends a weight limit of 40 pounds (18 Kilograms) for its carrier; however, the carrier has been tested up to 90 pounds (41 Kilograms). Our carrier will accommodate you as long as you and your baby are happy using it.
