ERGO Baby Features I LOVE!!
I do love my ERGO Baby Carriers! My favorite is the orignal. But it has to be an organic original. I wasn't always a fan of the ERGO. When I first got mine, I thought that it was just too much carrier for me. I thought it was stiff and bulky. But then, I "upgraded" to an organic ERGO Baby Carrier and was in LOVE! The organic carrier was so much softer and nicer than the non organic. HUGE difference! Ever since I've gotten that organic one, I've only come to love the ERGO more and more.
You ask what do I love about the ERGO Baby Carriers? Ah! A LOT! I love the straps! Yes, I didn't at first, but I came to love them as they offere a ton of support and do a great job of distributing the weight of the baby.
I also love the seat darts. Many people complain that the back of the ERGO isn't as "tall" as the back of other carriers, and it's not. But since the ERGO has a nice, deep seat for the baby to sit in, the height of the back isn't so much of an issue. I really like that my girls are able to be comfortably seated in the ERGO and have their weight distributed throughout their bottoms (the way it should be naturally).
I also love the pocket on the ERGO. It is HUGE! The pocket can hold my wallet, sunglasses and keys no problem. The sleeping hood can also be stowed away on top of the pocket when not being used.
Speaking of the sleeping hood....I have yet to find a baby carrier that has a sleeping hood superior to the ERGO Baby Carrier's sleeping hood. The hood on the ERGO is soft and forms to the baby's head. It snaps into place on the shoulder straps and gently cradles the baby's head while sleeping.
My girls are 18 months and nearly 4 years old now and I still use the ERGO Baby Carrier for both of them comfortably. We have travelled a good bit with it and use it around the house and around town plenty! Great carrier and great investment!
