This is a Joint Review and Giveaway of the Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier between Natural Parents Network and Farmer’s Daughter.
About the Ergobaby Organic Carrier
The Ergobaby Organic Carrier is a soft structured carrier that’s versatile enough to use from infancy on up to four years old, with three comfortable carries. I’ve carried both of my big boys in front carries so they could snuggle to sleep while out and about, or on my back for big adventures or to soothe an overtired child. Made of 100% Oeko-Tex certified organic cotton, it also comes with a hood that’s UPF 50+. I have found the Ergobaby Organic Carrier to be a very comfortable babywearing experience for baby and parent!
Babywearing is an essential part of my life as a busy working mother of two small children because this is the best way I’ve found to be able to meet both of their needs at the same time! My baby wants me to hold him while he naps, but big brother wants me to play? No problem! I’ll just snuggle my baby in the carrier while I push my big boy on the swing. My toddler needs to eat supper, but it’s my baby’s fussy time of night? No problem! I can safely keep baby close to me on my back and sing, sway and dance while I cook. With the Ergobaby Organic Carrier I’m able to keep my baby close while still giving special attention to my other child or doing household tasks. I also love to be able to carry my baby in places where strollers are difficult to navigate like the aquarium, fairs and festivals, on hikes or even at tractor pulls (we spend a lot of time at tractor pulls!).
Good for Baby, Parent and Planet
I have found this carrier to be very comfortable, and because it is easily adjustable I’ve been able to wear it as I lose weight and as my baby gains weight. According to their website, “The award-winning design holds your baby in an ergonomic, natural sitting position. The padded waistbelt ensures baby’s weight is evenly distributed between your hips and shoulders while the adjustable, cushy padded shoulder straps provide you with ultimate comfort.” This is truly the most comfortable carrier I’ve ever used, and I love that it’s made of organic cotton so I know it’s safe for my baby’s sensitive skin and for the people who grow the cotton it’s made of!
You can purchase your own Ergobaby Organic Carrier at Ergobaby for $135. My carrier is Chocolate Brown, but shop around the site before you decide — I love so many of their designs and colors! Their carriers make great gifts for the new parents (or even grandparents) on your list!
