The Ergo Baby Carrier is by far our most popular baby sling but what makes is such a big hit with us and our customers?
The Ergo is Comfortable
I tried many slings in my baby wearing days and the Ergo was by far the most comfortable for extended periods of baby carrying. With its ergonomic design, thick padded shoulder straps, adjustable waist band and shoulder straps, the weight is distributed evenly across both shoulders and down your legs, not just on your back.
Unlike heavy frame baby backpack carriers, the Ergo weighs only 700g so it doesn’t add to your load and there are no metal parts to dig into you or your child.
I would regularly carry my 4 year old daughter to 1-2 hours at a time without feeling any strain on my back or becoming overly tired.
The Ergo is Versatile
The Ergo Baby Carrier is the baby sling that does it all. With the addition of the Infant Insert, this baby carrier can be used from birth to around 4 years.
You can use it as:
- A newborn baby sling
- A toddler baby carrier
- A front baby carrier
- A hip riding baby carrier
- A baby backpack (carry on your back)
You will use it for:
the school run, shopping, walking the dog, trekking on the Moors, days at the beach (have you ever tried pushing a pram on the sand?), doing the housework, day trips out, heck you can even breastfeed in the Ergo.
The Ergo is quickly and easily adjusted via the buckled straps, so it can be used by both parents – the standard Ergo will fit daddies up to around 6′ 5” though taller/bigger framed parents may prefer the Ergo Sport.
The Ergo is Safe
The Ergo Baby Carrier has been designed from the bottom up to be safe for your baby. It has passed rigorous safety testing both in Europe and America including:
- the European testing agency TÜV since 2008
- the Juvenile Products Manufactures Association (JPMA) since 2008
- the CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Information Act) standards mandated by Congress in 2008
The Ergo creates a baby safe natural sitting position for babies and toddlers, preventing compression of the spine and hips that can occur with some other baby carriers.
Your baby is held securely against you in an upright position, within kissing distance of you, with their chin off their chest and back supported – for more information on baby safety in slings and baby carriers, see www.babyslingsafe.com.
For the parent, your baby’s weight is distributed evenly across your body and balanced over your hips and shoulders, unlike with some baby slings that put all the weight on just one shoulder.
We love the Ergo and are sure you will too – do feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
