Ergobaby Carrier Instructions and Review

The name Ergobaby suits this ergonomic carrier perfectly!  Now in its third generation, Ergobaby’s Original Collection baby carrier provides a comfortable carrier solution for baby from infant to toddler, and for his parents.  Designed to be used from birth with the Ergobaby Infant Insert, the Ergobaby can grow to accommodate an infant up to a toddler of 45 pounds.

Among other features, this carrier distributes weight evenly between parent’s shoulders and hips and also offers thick, adjustable straps and secure buckles.

Today, I’m showing how to carry an infant in the Ergobaby using the infant insert.  To make the Ergobaby fit for your newborn, you’ll need to use the Ergobaby Infant Insert (sold separately). This insert supports the baby’s entire spine, versus just the neck.  When your baby has enough neck strength, at around four or five months of age, the carrier can then be used without the insert. Refer to my video for how to front carry a newborn baby with the Ergobaby, and be sure to check out my other videos on the Ergobaby! Although it’s on the expensive side, you’re definitely getting top-notch quality and technology in this carrier.

    • So great to hear! I really appreciate you watching CloudMom, congrats on your little one on the way 🙂

  • Anna Schwartz

    Very informative and easy to follow instructions how to use this carrier. My baby is due any day now. We received an Ergobaby carrier from my middle sister, but I do need to purchase the infant insert. I saw some youtube videos of moms just using a blanket as a “hack” but I feel the baby is more secure with the carrier. It’ll give me peace of mind.

  • Erica P.

    Our carrier is the one piece of baby gear we really couldn’t do without. I use a Lille (it does really well in the New Orleans heat) but recently gifted an Ergo to a friend– it’s been amazing to see the difference it makes in her parenting life!

  • Theresa Hover

    I bought an Ergo for my SIL when she had her first little one, but we don’t even own an Ergo! I would love to win one for my hubby to use.

  • Aurora P.

    I want an Ergo so badly, and love this print.

    Ergos are the best and the print on this one is gorgeous.

  • Claire Rheinheimer

    I love that this can be used from birth to 45 lbs!

  • Kieratate

    Would be amazing to win this! Wish I could afford one 🙂

  • Noelle Carroll

    This would make life so much easier! Having two kids makes my arms work double time 🙂

    • Having an extra arm or two available is a big difference!

  • Katie Starshine Hall

    I would love to have one of these for when my first baby is born. Only three months left. =]]
