Reasons I Chose an Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier
When my husband and I got married, we both had a lot of nieces and nephews on both sides of the family which was great, we both like kids and enjoyed the times we baby sat. Sometimes we’d offer to watch his brother’s or my sister’s kids overnight or for a weekend so the parents could get a break. Along with having a great time with the kids, this was good was because it let us try out different strollers, different baby carriers, items like the Ergobaby organic baby carrier and experience in the very short term, having babies and young children around.
We Finally Have Our Own Baby
We’ve been fixing up an old farmhouse and small farm now for 5 years, and we were finally ready to start planning a family. I got pregnant quickly, and had a very easy pregnancy, except the last 3 weeks I started developing pre-eclampsia, and I’m told you never want it to go into full on eclampsia. My labor had to be induced and my 9-pound baby girl was born yelling at the top of her lungs. I never heard anything more beautiful.
So Many Choices in Baby Carriers Now
I knew from taking care of other people’s babies, I wanted to be among the baby wearing folk. I loved the feeling of having a baby next to my body and carrying a baby is really convenient. My sister swears by her Moby wrap and my sister-in-law likes her baby in a stroller. To each her own, I always say. I personally was sold my cousin’s baby carrier made by Ergobaby.
Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier Pros
I love how my daughter’s weight feels evenly distributed on my body. When I used a wrap carrier, I really felt the weight of my daughter on my hips, and it was uncomfortable. I can say I’ve never felt that with my Ergobaby carrier. Another huge selling point to me was the fact my baby was in a natural sitting position. I read about how easily a baby’s legs can go to sleep in a baby carrier, and it was honestly something I never considered before. You can also adjust this carrier to carry your baby front, back, or on the hip. I love the fact the entire carrier is machine washable. My mom giving my daughter a fudgicle one day at the park showed me how much chocolate a baby could smear on a carrier, and thank goodness a toss in the washer and a tumble in the dryer was all it took to make my baby carrier look like new.
Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier Cons
The one and sole complaint I had about this carrier was that when I bought it, nothing was stated that the insert (where the baby sits) needs to be purchased also. I was under the assumption that it came with the carrier. I wound up buying two inserts, so I always had one at the ready. When we were visiting Cozumel, and my daughter had diarrhea (I know, TMI) from teething, I learned fast having another insert for the carrier while one is drying is a great thing to have around.
We still love it when our ever-growing family visits and our nieces and nephews enjoy playing with their new cousin. My sister wanted to try my Ergobaby organic baby carrier with her little one, and now the woman who would never leave Moby is considering getting a baby carrier like me. Personally, I would never switch to any other carrier. It’s so convenient, and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that my baby is always safe and comfortable in this carrier.
