Ergobaby Review & Giveaway

My journey into babywearing has changed and evolved with each child that I have had.


Wearing Zoelle (1 month) in the Ergo while gardening.

When Zoelle was born, my mom gifted me with an Ergobaby carrier. She had done a ton of research on the benefits of babywearing and encouraged me to wear Zoelle as much as I could. When Zoelle was born, I did just that. We didn't use her stroller that often as she liked to be with me and worn on me. I was ok with that as I enjoyed wearing her and she enjoyed sleeping on me. Many walks were taken with her in the Ergo. As she grew older, I became a bit insecure in my babywearing efforts. Other moms around me were not babywearing and I felt a little funny going to the park or on walks with just the Ergo. Thus I kind of quit babywearing. I have come to greatly regret that decision.


One of my favorite pictures of Zoelle in the Ergo at 6 months.

Thus I was determined when Meridian was born to babywear her longer and I hoped that I wouldn't have as many insecurities as a second time mom. I ended up buying a few different carriers with her and luckily for me she only really loved to nap while babywearing. Thus we did a lot of babywearing and to this day, we still will wear her if she is fussy or we are going hiking. Even Chris gets in on the babywearing with the girls and he loves the colors of the Ergo for that reason.


Meridian just waking up from a nap in the Ergo at 21 months.

When we adopted Xiomara I knew I would babywear her the most because at this point, my insecurities were pretty much next to none and I knew the benefits of attachment with babywearing her. From day one I babywore her practically everywhere. Almost everyday, or at least several times a week if I am making supper or trying to get laundry done, I just put Xiomara in the carrier and we go about our work. I love it, she loves it and I don't see us stopping anytime soon.

Buy It!

Overall, I would highly recommend my Ergobaby Baby Carrier to moms or dads or even to care takers who need an extra hand. One of my favorite things about it, is that it is easy to use and that if needed, I can get my toddler in and out quickly. It is comfortable for both child and adult and the attachment it brings is amazing! Plus there is nothing quite as sweet as snuggling a baby (or toddler) close.
