The Ergo carrier is different from other baby carriers because of it’s unique design. Most baby slings are made of out of a pouch that goes over one shoulder and this can lead to misalignment of the back and shoulders for the person who is wearing the baby. The Ergo carrier however, goes over both shoulders which keeps the body in alignment and prevents back pain.
Not only are there straps that go over each shoulder, but there is also a belt that goes around the waist. This is another feature that helps to distribute the baby’s weight more evenly and makes it more comfortable for the person who is wearing the baby. This, in turn, allows you to carry your baby for longer amounts of time with less physical discomfort which gives you more freedom to do the things you would like to do.
Because baby carriers allow you to carry your baby hands-free, the Ergo carrier is a great option to use while shopping, cleaning, hiking or gardening. Now you can remain active and productive, even with a small baby, and know that your baby is safe and secure. Since the baby is carried in the front, it can even be used for nursing discreetly while out in public. The closeness and constant motion often comforts cranky and colicky babies and helps them to fall asleep.
Not only is the Ergo carrier more comfortable for the person who is wearing the baby, but it is also a better choice for the baby. The Ergo carrier keeps the baby in a sitting position which is much more natural and helps prevent spine and hip problems which can occur with other slings. With a constant connection and the ability to view their surroundings, babies feel more secure and content, which is always a good thing.
The Ergo carrier come with a variety of accessories that can be purchased online or in stores. The infant insert is necessary if you plan on wearing a newborn baby in order to position them correctly. There is also a waist expander in the event that the waist belt is too small for you. A couple of useful accessories are the front pouch and backpack, which both hook to the carrier and allow you to carry necessary supplies. Lastly there is a weather cover, which is waterproof and fits over the carrier to keep your baby dry.
Many baby slings on the market today tend to be uncomfortable for both baby and the wearer because of positioning and the way the weight is distributed. This leads to misalignments and muscle fatigue and limits the amount of time you can carry your baby. The Ergo carrier however, eliminates this problem with features such as double shoulder straps and a waist belt. This makes this carrier much more comfortable to wear and keeps you free to do more in your daily life. This along with several convenient accessories, such as pouches, makes the Ergo carrier a favorite among parents and caretakers.
