Summary: 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
Summary: 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
Summary: Works great on the front and is very comfortable. However, puting the baby on the back is very difficult is one is alone. Our guy is 8 months and pretty tall but never seemed able to get comfortable in it.
Summary: I was so excited for the ERGObaby carrier after talking with a friend about how she loved her's. We purchased it and the waist extender (if you are size 12 pants or higher it will make you more comfortable) and were surprised to find that our 6 month old didn't fit. He is a little small, in the 25% for height, but ERGObaby's website said that an infant insert wasn't needed when the baby's knees could bend over the sides.
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
