This is an Ergo

Posted by Mandy at 5:39 AM

I've had tons of people ask me what an Ergo is since I've been raving about it... here are pics! I love love love this carrier.. it by far is better than others that might resemble it. For a newborn or young infant it has an "infant insert" that goes inside of it (the green 'blanket' looking thing surrounding Samuel) and it holds them in place so they don't slip out of the leg openings and snuggles them up! If you look you can see that he's being held in a cradle hold, not in a typical 'baby carrier' hold where the legs are splayed out in a seat. In this one his legs are both coming out of the same opening and he's seated in the carrier. There is also nothing between you and the baby with an Ergo... it is great for bonding and calming a fussy boy! (Ergo should really start paying me for these ads... ) I really wish I'd have had one of these with Carter... man oh man would it have been a life saver! Normally I have Sam snuggled down inside of it more but you wouldn't have been able to see him at all lol so I propped him up instead.

Got to love those carriers. I don't have an Ergo but have a regular one from Wal-Mart. It is great. Kaylee likes to turn and face people. So while shopping I put her in and I have two hands to shop. It is great.

fellow ergo lover, commenting. karis was older before i got mine, but have gotten every penny's worth of use. she still rides in it, not to mention blessing. in fact, with blessing in particular, it's been a life saver. when she first came to us, she fought being held, but would rest in the ergo...it was a way for us to begin bonding without her feeling "violated". karis weighs 33 pounds, and i can carry her for 4 hours in that thing without my back hurting. love it!

ooh Thanks for showing me! I was thinking about getting a hotsling, but I might check this one out. Do you have a link to where to buy it? Thanks again Mandy! Any other baby recommendations? You should blog that! :)

Allison...You can go to ebay and get one for the same price as on ergo.com. there are many many places if you type in ergo. Mandy...I am so happy that you like it so much. I cant wait to either borrow yours when we have another one or get one of my own.
