Baby Month: ERGO Baby Carrier {Giveaway}

One item that I'm extremely excited to use with my upcoming baby is the ERGO Baby Carrier. I've wanted one of these since my son was born, especially since unlike many baby carriers, this one can be worn in a variety of ways--on the front, back, and hip.  I'm eager to use my Organic Dark Chocolate with Kona Coffee lining with this baby, especially because it will span the child's entire infant-hood and beyond.
I'm not sure what my husband and I would have done without our front carrier (not an ERGO) when our son was born. It was often the one reliable way to calm him down, by snugging him in it and taking him for a walk.  I know the ERGO will be a lifesaver with 2 kids, especially when pushing one in the stroller and being able to carry the other, hands-free.
I actually tried out my ERGO by carrying my 37lb 3 year old in it, on my back of course, (prior to being 7 months pregnant) and the Ergo is surprisingly comfortable.  No surprise, considering it has some of the best reviews for baby carriers that I've read by moms and dads.
Getting used to fastening a child into the ERGO Carrier is a little tricky at first, especially because you're so concerned about latching everything correctly, but once you get the hang of it, it's comfortable to wear and I felt secure, even with a preschooler on my back! I'm sure the baby will be even easier to manage.
ERGO Carriers comes in a variety of styles, fabrics and colors, and ERGO makes accessories like backpacks, pouches, and the Infant Insert, which I'll be buying for use in the first 4-6 months.  The Infant Insert allows you to use the ERGO for even the youngest babies by specially cushioning their floppy little heads.
I'm really looking forward to using this carrier with my baby, especially knowing that I can continue using it much longer than our front-only carrier.
WIN IT!

  51. Ahh! So hard to decide! I've concluded that the Performance ERGObaby (in spring green) is the best one for my family.

    I've heard such good things about ERGOs. I really want to try one. They look beautiful (I've seen a few in real life)! And best of all, their size range fits me (5'3") AND my husband (6'3").

  85. I like the stream line look of the ERGObaby - Performance carrier. And I LOVE green Spring Green to be exact. I would love to win this carrier. I'm a stay at home mom with a 2/1/2 yr old and a 1 yr old so this carrier would make it easier for me to get around. It's the only carrier around versicle enough to fit my younger child and older tot(who btw gets lazy and doesn't like to walk).

I'd love to fuse that bond with the baby that I wasn't able to carry in my womb by carrying her outside my womb. Thanks for the chance!

  165. I'd like to win this carried because Hubby & I are working on baby number 1 and I've always wanted to carry a baby in a carrier like this. Even as a little kid, playing 'house' I would have my Mom take a towel and wrap my baby dolls on me so could have my hands free to make believe. If I won, I'd love the Galaxy Grey carrier with embroidery - galaxy lining.
