Excerpt: I used this carrier quite a bit from the time my son was about 3 months until he was about one year. However, by the end he was quite big and was no longer being supported knee to knee. I also found that the heavier he got the more uncomfortable the carrier got around the waist since the webbing just kind of digs into you with little padding. I think this is mostly an issue when the child gets heavy and there is more weight to support.
Excerpt: I purchased this carrier because another shopper told me her sister he works at a baby store in California recommended it. I use it when I want to grocery shop with my son (3 mths old) The good: it is very comfortable, and baby can sleep in it, and its easy to clean. the bad, you can't front face carry your baby with it. If money is no object to you I would purchase this one and also a front facing carrier such as the bjorn.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Easily Stowed, Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sturdy
Excerpt: Overall, it seems like a good product. Son finds it comfortable but often he looks like he is crammed into the ergo. He isn't sitting straight up, but rather just slouched in there. And its not made for someone like me who has a size 34 waist. Sons legs are spread too far apart. Not to mention that its mind boggling at first to try to put it on. I like the Baby Bjorn better, too bad its not made for growing babies.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: A friend saw me try and put this sling on and made me promise never to use it again. It is so difficult to put your baby onto your back alone. The front position is easier and not as comfy but the back position is very scary to get your baby into. Fortunately I borrowed this sling, as it is quite expensive. However, if there is someone around to help lift the baby into the back position it is really comfortable to carry your baby in. You could walk for hours!
Excerpt: Having decided we wanted a child carrier we bought the ergo, well i wish i hadnt, trying to get it on if your on your own is practically impossible also our son did not look comfortable at all. i would sugest if your thinking of buying a child carrier spend that little bit more on a framed carrier, the diffence in ease of use and and comfort is amazing no needs or elbows in your back and the loading is much more easyier
