ERGOBaby Carrier Review
Organic Twill Blue Carrier w/Embroidery Applique
Retails for $149.95 CAD
Stylish, comfortable but a little hard to use with Kate. This is my first carrier so I don't have much to compare it to - other than the Baby Bjorn that was second-hand. She's a little too short and unless I strap myself in to the point for barely being able to breathe... she slips through. I'm hoping it gets easier to use once she grows into it. Basically my only peeve, I wish it had a better design for newborns like I saw in other brands. I'm also dealing with the aftermath of shoulder surgery pains and the limitations of arm movement... it's difficult for me to strap her in when I'm wearing this on my front. I couldn't imagine doing this alone when she's on my back - this is clearly a 2-person job. I have a few slings, but slings seems to put far too much pressure on ONE shoulder. The ErgoBaby spreads the weight evenly and I can see myself carrying her for longer periods of time - Kate just need to grow a bit before I stopped worrying about dropping my baby!
Comparing this to the Baby Bjorn that was lent to me? I choose the ErgoBaby hands down. I keep my carrier in my trunk. Sometimes its just easier to use the carrier than lugging out the stroller.
