ERGObaby’s Performance baby carriers are made of durable, lightweight, and breathable fabric and can accommodate all active moms and dads.
Just in at the Natural Nursery is this lovely new colourway; Charcoal Grey and Black go with almost anything and are perfect for mums and dads. We have been asking about babywearing dads on the Natural Nursery Facebook Page and some mums say that dads are really happy to carry their children but they prefer the slings to be in neutral colours.
Alison sent us in this review that tells you a lot about the Performance Carrier:“I am delighted with my Ergo Performance. My baby is a really ‘hot-blooded’ little boy and both he and I were overheating with wrap carriers. We both stay nice and cool with this.
My husband really likes this carrier as it looks quite sporty and he has found it really comfy to use (6″1, size Large). I on the other hand am only 5’2″/size 10 and also find this carrier very comfy. Of note, the shoulder straps are different to the original – they are not thick and squishy but firmer and thinner. However, I have never found them uncomfy even after hours. They are also more tapered and come in closer together. I was worried this might mean they rubbed on my neck. However, having tried both the Performance and Original I found these actually a much better fit – the original straps are very bulky and wide-set and meant it kind of hung off my outer shoulders and pulled. So some smaller ladies may find the straps rub on their neck but I’ve actually found this a much better fit.
Although this is not a ‘waterproof’ carrier, I have survived 30mins in a big downpour. I had my regular-sized waterproof coat on over and was able to do this up at the bottom (below the Ergo) to cover my son’s legs. I put the Ergo hood up, tucked his arms in and scampered home! I was impressed to find an essentially dry baby underneath when I got in, who had enjoyed the adventure! The lightweight nature of this carrier also meant it then dried out quickly.
Overall, a functional, versatile carrier which is comfy for 2 very different sized people and also very easy to adjust between us.”
This carrier features a high-performance polyester exterior, ideal for outdoor activities in all climates; a breathable mesh lining, keeping babies and parents cooler and more comfortable; and a cooling panel for extra wicking. This sleek, streamlined design offers a smooth, supportive fit for parents and babies of most sizes, and can still be used to carry babies from newborn to toddler on the back, front, and hip positions.
Of course, ERGObaby’s Performance line supports the correct ergonomic position for both babies and parents.
For babies less than four months old you will also need an ERGObaby Infant Insert in order to safely carry your baby in the ERGObaby Carrier.
