Think about it first...

  • Summary: While I'm sure this carrier is great I actually never used mine. I returned it when I found out that you can't place baby in it facing forward. Apparently ERGO feels that facing the baby away from you will create anxiety and I guess weaken the bond between mommy and baby. That's fine while baby is a newborn or really little still. But when he/she gets bigger you will want them to face forward and get to see things!
  • Pros: Attractive Design
  • Cons: Can't Face Baby Forward

bulky

  • Summary: bought this because it was recommended by two friends, and found it to be very bulky, hot for baby, and uncomfortable. bought the baby bjorn after using the Ergo for a while, and prefer the bjorn. if you're stuck between the two, i recommend the bjorn for infants. no insert necessary and much cooler temp for baby. haven't tried ergo in other positions for larger baby.
  • Pros: Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Uncomfortable

Not for petite women

  • Summary: I had heard such great things about this product so naturally I added it to my registry. I should have tried it on before doing that though because when it was given to me as a gift, I realized there must be a height requirement. I am 5 feet tall and this carrier was way too long for me. I had to return it and am now going with one of their competitors.

Disappointed!

  • Summary: I bought this carrier as an alternative to wrapping my baby. I have lower back pain and loved the reviews the Ergo got. It hurt my back so much I returned it within a few days. Good concept, wish it delivered.

Difficult to use

  • Summary: Maybe I'm missing something, but I really don't like this carrier. Our daughter is 6 weeks old and we used the Ergo, along with the infant insert, for about a week before we became frustrated with it and broke out our Baby Bjorn. We'll never go back. The Ergo is really hard to put on, take off, and adjust. It's even harder to put your baby in (using the infant insert). And if your baby falls asleep in it, forget about taking her out without waking her.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Difficult To Set Up, Hard to adjust, Hard to put on, Uncomfortable
