Amazing Baby Carrier
This carrier was a lifesaver in the early days when my daughter wanted to be cuddled close all the time and we still use it almost daily 10months on. I love that it doesn't need an infant insert and that it has four positions. I haven't used the back postion yet, so don't know how comfortable it is, but the front positions (facing in or out) are really comfortable for me and my partner. I am struggling with the hip position but intend to check out the Ergo website for tips to help. My daughter loves being in the carrier and never gets sick of i...t. The fact thay this carrier can be used in four different poisitions means that it can be used for older toddlers and saves us having to purchase another carrier as our daughter gets older. It is super easy to out on by yourself and to adjust for the different positions or different people using it. I am always recommending this carrier to friends and family.

Can be a struggle to put on by yourself
I purchased this so I could do shopping etc without taking a pram.
I researched this product and purchased because of good reviews and because it’s good for babies hips.
I personally found it difficult to get my newborn baby in the carrier and do it up myself. I didn’t have a partner home to help me as he worked away and was home 24 hours a week.
We tried a few times and she just doesn’t like it, even now that she’s 4 months old I can’t get her to stay in it for longer than 5 mins without freaking out.
I don’t feel confident it having her in it either.
WORTH EVERY DOLLAR!!!
Perfect for anywhere anytime, I have a heavy Boy & I can't feel his weight while wearing this it's that comfortable! No more sore back for Mumma & I get to use both hands! :D
Excellent features definitely one of the best & useful baby items I've purchased.
If you can find it on sale even better!
When my newborn was not settling unless I’m holding her. I knew it was time for me to invest on buying a baby carrier... I researched ones to use not just when my baby is a newborn but as well to later on. I read the reviews, watched YouTube for comfort and ease of use. I came across Ergobaby Omni 360 Cool Air. Yes it’s pricey but am sure you can search around for a bargain as it normally retails from $220 to $320 AUD. Lucky I got mine for $100 AUD on Facebook Marketplace in which it was never used by owner however no box and instructions (I fo...und the instruction on YouTube). The first time I used it, I got to use both of my hands while my bubba slept for longer than putting her down and having to carry her resting in one arm which was a strain on my whole body. So if you’re after a reliable, weightless and easy to use baby carrier I totally recommend this.

Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh
I use this carrier far more than I use my pram when out with bubs. Has great features, a rain hood, pockets for phone and keys, tags on the carrier that remind you what position everything should be in when forward or rear facing. The mesh was great in summer for keeping both of us a bit cooler as we like to go walking. Also very easy to attach a blanket when bubs needs some extra winter warmth. I have a bad back and needed something that would support me as much as it supported the baby. This has been comfortable (for both myself and my husband) as our child gets bigger and bigger!! Would definitely recommend. I wouldn't be without it!!
Best purchase I’ve made
I honestly use this carrier almost every day, I don’t use a pram at all. I have a cuddly baby that loves to be held, and this carrier fulfills her needs, and my need to use my hands. I’ve been using it for 13 months now and can’t find a single fault with it. It’s great for walks, going shopping, or when Bub just does not want to be put down and I need to clean/cook. Couldn’t live without it.

Ducking to the shops got easier!
Love love love our ErgoBaby carrier! It is perfect for when you don’t want to take the pram or my baby needs a good sleep. We will be taking our carrier overseas with us too.

This is the one baby product that I would recommend to everyone! I have the Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh carrier. It's great for newborns, as it doesn't require a separate insert (which can be really hot in the warmer months). I can carry my baby for hours in this and not get a sore back or shoulders. Highly recommended!

Expensive, but worth it. Could be even better though!!!
We bought the Omni 360 Baby Carrier: Cool Air Mesh, and have used it for about 4-5 months now. Baby is start to be forward facing. Overall, it's great. I'm mostly comfortable, Baby seems comfortable in it, Baby can be awake or asleep, and we can definitely get things done with our hands free if baby needs to be carried!! I can use it easily, and if my partner wants to use it, it's just a small adjustment as we are different sizes.
If needed, when we are out and don't need it, we can fold/wrap it up in itself (even if it's a little awkward), to...

Must buy baby carrier
ERGOBABY OMNI 360 COOL AIR MESH - PEARL GREY
I purchased this carrier and have been using it nearly everyday. It is easy to get on and off by myself. If you are travelling, I recommend getting this for the airport too, your baby can sleep on you while you move about the terminal. We have a pram that you can take on the plane but we end up using the carrier instead.
Best purchase ever
This was the best purchase ever. Super easy to use and it's very comfortable not sore or straining on my back. And I can be close to baby and have my hands free. This is absolutely the best product I wish I had this with my 1st born. It makes life so much easier
A must purchase

Most exciting purchase ever (after my house and car)!
I have researched and pined after this exact carrier for months and it has not disappointed. I’ve owned it for a day and a half and used it three times already! Having already used borrowed other versions of the ergobaby carrier, I knew that my baby and I would both be comfortable and I was confident that my baby would be in a safe position: I really wanted this carrier with the cool mesh because my bub is a little hot-bod. She is at an age where she wants to see what’s going on-so I wanted the forward-facing option, and I like the crossover st...raps as well, because they are very comfy. The little bag at the front for my keys, wallet and phone has been very useful too. The best thing, though has been that it’s made me choose to do things that I wouldn’t have otherwise done; like brave the dog park with both my baby and my dog for the first time, and do a quick supermarket shop tonight. As I went to get my baby out of the car, planning to put her into the carrier facing forwards again, she fell asleep right before my eyes. The slider adjustment to change the carrier to inward facing was so simple and quick- no buttons to worry about- it was fantastic. She slept the entire time I shopped. This carrier is so much easier to put on than others I’ve tried, because it does up at the front with click clasps that have a little lever, so they can’t be accidentally pushed undone. I’m also glad that when I have another baby, I won’t need an infant insert, which can add another layer of warmth -which I don’t want. Overall I am so rapt with this carrier. It has lived up to my hopes and I’m sure I’ll use it loads.
Can't Imagine life without it
Absolutely has been excellent for my now 8 week old (started using it at 5 1/2 weeks). Mainly use it when i do the weekly shop, which free's up my hands to push a trolley.
It is really good when he is having a grumpy day and wants to be close the Omni allows him to be close and allows me to continue on jobs i need to do.
Omni 360 my BFF!
I was so excited to be one of the first people in Australia to use the new ErgoBaby Omni 360. My Husband, Mum, Dad and new daughter Harper went to England on a family trip when she was just 2 months old so of course we took my Omni with us! She absolutely loved being in it and myself and my whole family loved carrying her! The comfort, support and styling are second to none. I love the little detachable bag at the bottom which was perfect for nappies and wipes when we went on walking adventures. I also love that it’s machine washable! have recommend the Omni 360 to all my mama friends and will continue to use and love it for years to come! Thank you Babes in Arms for the amazing opportunity! Xx Heather and Harper
Ergobaby Omni lets me snuggle my newborn and be on my toes with my 3 year old. Bub is safe and secure snuggled into my chest and sleeps peacefully while I shop, clean or play with their sibling. The thick straps are padded well to support bub's weight evenly and protect my shoulders and back. The sun cover and zip lock pocket are well though out and very handy. It has been the best investment we have made and even Dad agrees it is value for money. Thank you Ergobaby for making busy days easier and for keeping my baby close to me.
I’ve got a few carriers - Manduca, Tula, stretchy wrap, wrap, ring sling. I’m so glad Ergo came out with something that doesn’t require an insert. My 3 week old fits well, although the straps on this are a little bulky around her little head. Not keen on the strap/webbing that cuts into my fat at the side (!!). Love the storage pouch that’s included and that it can face forward (haven’t had a chance to use it forward facing yet though). Would recommend. I bought this instead of the 360 cool air with insert as I thought it would be cooler. Glad I did know, as I don’t want to fiddle with an insert, no matter how cool it allegedly is.
I don't know how I survived without it!
Ergobaby has finally released the ultimate carrier! When comparing the Omni to other brands, this one was a clear winner. The storage pouch is so handy when going to the shops or walking to the park, I am able to wear my pocketless active wear or leave my handbag at home with my keys, money and phone (I have a large Samsung galaxy S8) all able to be safely stored in the easy to use and accessible pouch. I also love the forward-facing feature, perfect for my curious 1 year old who prefers being able to see what I see. The padded shoulder straps ...also make for a really comfortable walk when carrying my bubba on my back long distances. The best thing about this carrier though? It is so durable and will last years, my future little ones will use it too. The carrier is able to be used from birth, with no need for one of those pesky infant inserts that other carriers tend to have. A MUST-HAVE for any active parent!
Questions & Answers
I bought Ergobaby Omni 360 Hello Kitty version recently. I tried to fit my baby 5 months old 7.6kg front facing inward, but I notice his legs looked tight and turned from red to black. I immediately remove my baby from the carrier. Is there something wrong that I need to adjust/fix? Thanks.
Hi Sherlyn, thankyou so much for reaching out to us regarding this issue. We appreciate you checking in to see what adjustments may need to be made to the carrier. Whenever baby is facing in toward you, you need to ensure the buttons are set on the correct positioning. The buttons will always be set on the black button (which creates a wide seat) UNLESS baby is in the front facing out position (which creates a narrow seat). My first instinct is to advise you to check the button positioning to ensure they are correct. If baby is front facing inward you need to ensure they are set up on the black button.
The second adjustment you might want to try is to check how tight the carrier is. If you try loosening the amount of tension you use to pull baby toward you when tightening the carrier from the side straps, you should see a noticeable difference.
I hope this helps you to find the optimal comfort level for your baby.
Hi I am currently using the Omni 360 for my 11 weeks old son, he is approx 5.2kgs and 60cm long. I am using the crossback (facing me) to carry him since I have narrow shoulders, however, I realised that his head always fall out from the side under the straps when he is asleep, and I have to keep pushing his head back to the middle. Could you please explaine why and hope you can help me resolve the problem. Btw the crossback makes the should straps very bulky at the back.
