Ergo Baby Carrier Review & Giveaway


What can I say about Ergo Baby that you don't know, yet? Ergo is a family owned and operated company run out of Maui, Hawaii. The Ergo carrier was designed in 2001 when Karen, the owner and designer, gave birth to her first son. She created the Ergo prototype to use with her son and after much advice from other parents, Ergo Baby was born. They market the Ergo Baby across the world and love to promote the natural baby wearing lifestyle. Ergo Baby offers carriers in both original styles as well as organic styles. They also offer a nice wide variety of accessories! Hannah was generous enough to send us an Ergo Baby Carrier in black with a camel lining!

Likes: I love everything about this carrier! I have another in a very similar style and I have to say, not only is this one simpler to use but it's also WAY more comfortable! The straps are soooo padded and sooo comfortable. I could carry my little guy in this for hours. As you can tell from the picture, he LOVES being carried in this and will just sit and watch and enjoy the view. He get so comfortable, in fact, that he falls asleep! (see photo) I love that the hood is attached and I don't have to worry about it falling off or getting lost. I can just pull it out when I need it or tuck it in when I don't. I love the super large pocket in the front that is big enough to hold a diaper and some wipes for quick runs to the store, in to dinner, etc. I don't have to lug around the whole diaper bag and it's great! I can also fit my phone and wallet in it, as well! All at the same time and I love it! I love that the straps are super simple to use and all you have to do is pull them to adjust. They also have a super fab elastic strap at the end to keep the straps tucked in.. unlike I have in the picture. To be completely honest, I didn't find them until like 2 days ago. I love the comfort this carrier provides as well as the ease of adjustability. The other carrier that I have just does not compare. It has a hundred straps that don't tuck in and they can be easily overwhelming. They're also way more confusing to use. The Ergo is a simple buckle that you clip and pull the strap to tighten as needed. I also have to comment on how extremely easy it is for me to use it, then put it on my husband and have him use it! Simply loosen the straps, clip on the Hubz and retighten! Easy, peasy! I would recommend this carrier to every single person on earth. If you don't have a child to carry around, have more babies. Because this carrier is worth it! OR.. you could even put your groceries in it to carry them home. Who needs a back pack? Get an Ergo! Oh and no, to answer the question that I already see coming... No. You can't burrow my son. And no, you can't have him, either. Sorry, I'm kind of partial to the little fella.

Oh and don't even look for a dislike section because I honestly have none.

Rating: 20 out of 10! Yes, I just said 20 out of 10!! It's AMAZING!

Would you like to have an Ergo Baby Carrier for yourself or someone you love? You know you want to put a sack of potatoes in this to carry home from the grocers!! :) If you do, here's how you can get one.

Buy It! Visit Ergo Baby and purchase an Ergo Baby Carrier for $105 - $148, depending on style! Yes, it is completely worth every single penny! Don't have that much to spend on one? Don't worry! Check their auction page and check often! This is where they list their gently used Ergo's for a reduced price!


This contest is CLOSED!
Congrats to the winner, Nicole!

I would like to send a special thank you to Hannah at ERGObaby for providing the review and giveaway items! I was not compensated in any other way and the statements within this post are of my own and honest opinions.

  141. I follow!! And I'd love to have a plain black organic carrier. I already have a black organic with pink embroidery that I was lucky enough to snag on babysteals but since DH will be carrying DS once DD makes her appearance I think he'd prefer to carry DS in a more "manly" carrier color :)
