We know that the Ergo Baby Carrier is one of our best-selling baby carriers but now there are so many versions available, it can be a little confusing working out which one is right for you.
Here is a simple explaination of the different types of Ergo and the main differences between them.

- Ensure baby is held in a safe and comforting position
- Can be used from newborn (with the infant insert) right the way up to pre-schooler
- Can be used for front, hip and back positions
- Are safety tested to strict standards
- Have a sleephood to stop little heads wobbling
This is the orginal New Generation Ergo that replaced the Classic Ergo several years ago.
This is the Ergo baby sling that I used with my daughter until she was 4 1/2 years old, for up 2 hours at a time.
It is available in a range of colours to suit every style and is made from 100% cotton fabric.
It has a waist belt circumference from 25″ to 43″ and fits from 5′ to 6’5″ body height with adjustable shoulder and chest straps.
This is the same design as the ErgoBaby Carrier, but made with certified organic cotton.
It comes in a range of colours, many with beautiful embroidery.
It fits the same sizes at the normal ErgoBaby carrier (waist 25″ to 43″ and height 5′ to 6’5″) and can be used with the waist extender to give a comfortable fit if required.
Designed to appeal to those with a more rugged or urban style, the Ergo Sport will fit taller men and women.
It is lighter than the Ergobaby Carrier, and is made from a polycotton, a breathable fabric to keep both you and baby cooler than in the Ergobaby carrier.
The sleep hood is completely detachable and the body of the baby carrier is vented for coolness.
The waist belt can extend an additional 5″ further than the Ergobaby carrier (to 48”), and the shoulder straps can extend an extra 4″ (to 27”).
It is currently available in black and blue.
This is the newest addition to the Ergobaby range and is aimed at active parents who want a high performance baby carrier that is light weight, supportive and adaptable.
It has a streamlined design and is up to 1/3rd lighter than other Ergo slings.
