Amazing carrier.

published

My ERGO was fabulous from 6 months to about 2yrs old for both my kiddies. Great pockets for phone and keys. I bought the Limited Edition Christie Turlington one from Amazon, and an attachable shoulder bag to match. It has held its condition perfectly, I no longer need it but don't want to sell it as it is so nice.

Purchased in July 2014 at Amazon for A$120.00.

Easy to adjust

published

Good instructions came with this product and it was easy for dad to own this product and make it his thing! Infant insert was essential to start with and then we were able to easily transport and take with us everywhere. Felt secure and safe with this baby carrier. Good product!

A carrier that really has performance

published

It was for the second baby, so we had other brands before. The Ergobaby range was around when we had our first, or maybe we didn't see it. Anyway, it was better than our previous carriers. Really confortable and nice on the shoulders. My back didn't feel much tension. But, the best tester is my baby. She loves it. Falls asleep in it everytime.

A comfortable, practical and secure baby carrier!

published

Purchased the ergobaby performance carrier for our second child after trying other brands and styles with bub #1. Such a shame that we didn't try the Ergobaby sooner as it is far superior to the others we had tried. It is comfortable to wear (for both myself and my husband), easy to adjust, simple to set up for bub, very comfortable for bub, easy to position front, back or on the hip and suitable for children up to about 20kg. It's come in so handy for travel, and even when we're lugging big suitcases around, you hardly notice you're wearing the ergobaby! I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a comfortable, safe, and versatile baby carrier.

Great mesh design but bub unhappy

published

I love the ergobaby performance ventus as it's so airy for hot climate. Unfortunately the top of the carrier and between straps where baby's face is so claustrophobic and narrow my 6 month old boy who's actually tall enough to have his head above the carrier cried the moment I put him in. I felt like his neck, head and face is wrapped around by the carrier. Wish ergobaby will make it wider here and option to fold down the edge supporting neck for smaller babies so they are not totally covered. Also front facing outward would be great! I love it but it's the only carrier which made bb cried. So I opted for ergo 360. Great product but really hot for tropics. If only you have mesh material.

Worth the money!

Good carrier infant insert is trouble

published

I read a few reviews and spoke to.some friends and their comments were spot on. The carrier is good, supportive etc but given.how fiddly the infant insert is, probably best for bubs 3/4 months upwards. Also, the clips are pretty stiff and I really struggle with the one across the shoulders, you need elastic arms for sure.

Where is the pouch?

published

I have used the original for the first few weeks when my son was born., borrowed from a friend. I bought the performance because my baby was so warm in the original one, and this was at winter time. Quite happy with the performance although I deeply miss the big pouch the original has, which can accomodate, a purse, a nappy, a burp cloth.
I don't think a pouch would have compromised the main purpose of the carrier (ie being light).
An earlier comment mention a pouch, but this is only for the rain/sun cover, a really tiny one... That's a shame!

BEST baby purchase i've made!

published

I LOVE this carrier! I have used it more than my expensive pram. My bubs is 9 months and has loved it from birth. I would take him to the beach and he would have naps in it. He doesn't sleep in it now but I just whip it out for quick shop runs etc. So good for settling a newborn and getting out and about. Would highly recommend!
material is breathable for sunny hot qld, love the pocket for keys/ phone, sleepy hood
my bub is a big boy, I find sometimes it can be a bit uncomfortable after a while, probably because he is a budda and im only small

Love it! Have told countless people to get it.

published

Love this carrier. I never used it when my kid was a newborn as I had a hugabub but got it around 6 months and used it until 18 months. Never had a problem and used it daily. Was sad when I didn't have the strength to carry my little one anymore. My husband can still use it on his back.
Easy and fast to use, holds baby close to the body, back hold option. Baby feels super secure.
Would have liked a forward facing option as my baby was sometimes so keen to see and would end up all twisted.

Well designed!

published

Love my Ergobaby carrier and have been using it with my baby since 2 months. I have a lower back problem so I couldn't really carry stuff for long but with this carrier I could barely feel any pressure on my back. It's really well designed so that baby’s weight is evenly distributed on me.

Perfect carrier!

published

I purchase my ergo performance when bub was 1 yr old.It's been the best thing we've invested in.Mostly used for travel and shopping in supermarket.Lightweight,practical,durable.I have a little boy and my husband decided to gor with ergo carrier as it does notT hold bub by the crotch like some other carriers do.
All ergo carriers support well,the same way you would carry your baby in your arm;holding bum and legs.A real sitting position instead of hanging.
I purchased mine new but now after only 1yrand a half,it is not being used much.
I do not really like investing in expensive items that won't be use in the long run.
So may be considering a good secondhand ergo from ebay could have been a better options to save some $$$.

Questions & Answers

Performance

What would happen if you did face your child outwords in the ergo baby original?

1 answer
Ergobaby
Karrie H.Ergobaby

Hi Jesse, Thanks for contacting us to find out the correct information on facing baby outwards. Facing baby outwards in the Ergobaby Original is not recommended at all. The Ergobaby Original carriers are only 3 position carriers and they aren't designed to support a baby in an outward facing position. The structure of the carrier simply doesn't allow for it. Facing baby outwards in the Ergobaby Original will put baby's hips in a compromised position. The baby will sit too wide in the seat pushing their legs too far apart which in turn will put undue pressure on their hips. We definitely advise NOT to face baby outwards in the Ergobaby Original.

If you are looking for a carrier in which baby can face outwards, please look at our Ergobaby 360 range. These are the only Ergobaby carriers which will support baby in the correct ergonomic position whilst facing outwards.

I hope this has helped answer your question. Thanks again for contacting us via Product Review.

Hi, we are going to travel overseas and most likely will be carrying our 2.5 up she is 10 kg. We are wondering which ergo carrier will be best for the job. Any recommendation? Thanks in advance

Hi Slina

Thankyou for getting in touch with us and for choosing an Ergobaby Carrier for your overseas travel adventures. What an exciting time for you and your family!

For travelling, and given the weight of your child now, I would suggest our Cool Air Adapt Carrier. This carrier will take up to 20kgs in weight which means you will get maximum use out of the carrier as your 2.5 year old grows. The Cool Air Adapt is made from the same fabric as Nike and Lorna Jane use in their activewear - it's basically designed to keep yourself and bub cool in warmer months whilst you are wearing the carrier. The other thing I love about this carrier for travel is that the type of fabric it is made out of is very comfortable for older babies whether you need it for warmer weather or not. The Adapt is a 3 position carrier meaning you can carry her on front facing toward you, on your hip and on your back. At 2.5 years of age the back carry becomes a popular choice both parents and child - it's fun and comfortable.

I hope that this has helped with your decision. Have fun on your travels!

Performance

Which style has the best back support for the carrier? I'm looking at 360 or performance

3 answers

Honestly I'm not sure. I only really tried the Performance. When I looked at the fabrics the 360 seemed like it would be quite warm (I bought it in summer in Brisbane). But most stores are happy for you to try it on and put your baby in it (however that's not an option if the baby hasn't been born yet). The 360 let's you put the baby on the front and facing outwards and you can't do that with the Performance. The Performance you can wear on your back, hip, or front (all of which, the baby needs to be facing into your body and not outwards).

Overall the 360 is thicker in padding on shoulder hence feels more supportive than performance. Performance has higher weight carrying capacities of 20kg though.

Ergobaby
Babes in Arms E.Ergobaby

The ergobaby 360 carrier has a wrap around waist band which many people find offers superior support. This carrier offers the baby a facing outwards carry position.
The ergobaby performance carrier has dense foam shoulders which are curved more like a hiking pack, which some people prefer. This carrier has mesh lining.
Both are really comfortable. Both are designed to have the load of the baby carried on the hips and not on your back or shoulders. Both are great carriers!
