The Ergo baby carrier is our best seller baby backpack. From birth to toddler, comfortable and great value.
The ErgoBaby Baby Carrier will allow you to carry your baby:
With the addition of the infant insert (available separately), it can be used from newborn right the way to heavy pre-schoolers, meaning you only need to buy one baby sling. I carried my daughter until she was well over 4 1/2 years old for up 2 hours at a time.
A key feature of the ErgoBaby Baby Carrier is its design - unlike some other baby carriers, it holds your baby in the anatomically correct position so your baby is "seated" in the carrier rather than suspended from it. Studies have shown that this is better for the development of your baby's spine as it does not put undue pressure on developing bones.
For the parent, the Ergo is comfortable even for long carries and can be quickly adjusted to fit from 5' to 6'5" so it adapts well in families where the parents have different body shapes or sizes.
The ERGObaby Carrier enables you to carry your child in front, on your back, or on your hip, giving you and your child freedom of movement as well as the closeness your child needs.
Newborn:With the addition of the infant insert, you can carry your newborn from day one in a gentle, secure snuggle position
Front position:From around 4 months, you can carry your baby sitting up, facing you. Babies love to be close to their parent and to receive eye-to-eye contact and sitting in this position makes them feel supported and protected, essential to a baby’s mental and social development.
Back position:As soon as the neck of your child is strong enough to support the head for any length of time, your child can be carried on your back. When going for a walk, shopping or every day just at home - your child is by your side, or rather: on your back. This gives you more freedom in everyday life, and at the same time strengthens the vital mother-child-relationship or father-child-relationship.
Hip position:This position is perfect for the temporary carriage of bigger children since your child can see everything and have close body contact at the same time. Carrying a child on your hip is the most natural way to carry a child and makes the anatomically correct natural sitting position possible.
Health and wellbeingThe ERGObaby Carrier ensures carriage in the anatomically correct natural sitting position. This position avoids bruising the genitalia or straining the baby's spine, which can arise with baby carriers that do not guarantee an anatomically correct natural sitting position. The ERGObaby Carrier is NOT designed for the front position with the baby facing outwards since, in this position, the anatomically correct natural sitting position is not possible and there are additional negative aspects.
Comfy, supportive on the back, mostly easy to put on & take off, and great to use around the house during 'fussy' times.

We chose the Ergo to buy after trying a couple of different ones with Arabella before making up our minds. It's a brilliant carrier and one that my husband is happy to use too. The weight of our daughter is really well distributed and I can see that this carrier will be used for a long time to come. As a bonus I knew that Arabella would help us learn how to use it and answer any questions we had.
bought the ergo along with the newborn insert to use with my then 5wk old baby and although the insert takes some wiggling to get used to she and I both found it very comfortable and easy to use and she slept soundly too!But what suprised me the most was its ability to carry my very tall 3 yr old daughter on my back! Who also fell comfortably asleep, definite added bonus and lets me know this carrier will last a long time.Very pleased and very happy!
Great carrier. Bought for my 5 month old as we wanted an alternative to the pushchair for walks, beach etc. He seemed unsure at first but after a couple of trips out and about he loves it! Also happily dozes off in it. Feels very comfortable to wear and baby feels well supported. We've been using the forward-facing carry as he's still quite small, however we've tried the other positions and they're also very comfortable. Not the cheapest carrier on the market but it's definitely worth spending a little more. It feels safe and sturdy - baby is in a good position and I'm hoping the carrier will last well. Easy to use and quick to adjust to fit either parent. Would highly recommend! Bought from Natural Nursery as they are an authorised retailer and there are a lot of unsafe counterfeits on other websites. Delivery was extremely quick, price the best I found and excellent communication. Very pleased all round.
I have a 4 month old that hates the pushchair and the car and I have a 5 year old that needs to be taken to school and collected 5 days a week. Needless to say the trip was a complete nightmare with a crying baby, a sad 5 year old and stressed out mum! This sling has been a life saver! Baby loves it! It works out that his nap times coincide with school times so baby sleeps for the whole journey and usually an extra half hr once we get back home. He is so comfortable and so am I, and I can have an undisturbed conversation with my 5 year old. I can not recommend this sling highly enough!The service I received was fantastic. After a dillema over the colour I had a very helpful email from The Natural Nursery and then the parcel arrived promptly. A perfect shopping experience. Thank you.
I used this carrier every day during a trip to Mozambique - it was comfortable even in the hot weather. My son is nearly 10kgs but the weight is well distributed and no backache. Only little gripe is doing up the catch across the back which takes practice to do alone, but usually easy to find someone who is happy to help. Definitely recommended.
I ordered this carrier having used a babasling and baby bjorn, both hand me downs, so I didnt mind shelling out for this sling. My almost 6 month old was getting very heavy in the baby bjorn and I was not able to manage long trips with her anymore. This is a great sling, just what I wanted, something to distribute her weight better across my hips and back. My baby seems very comfortable in it, and so am I. It's also much more cuddly than the baby bjorn! Wish I'd got it earlier!
hope this is ok but wanted to share the Ergo love a little further! http://newmummyreviewblog.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/ergobaby-carrier-review.html

I'd tried a few baby carriers and not found any comfortable. I have a history of back problems, this combined with a big baby boy I knew I needed to get a carrier I was happy with. I tried a friends one to go to London and it was amazing. I didn't hesitate to buy one. Very comfy easy to adjust with well thought out pockets. My baby always falls asleep in it which has to be a seal of approval. Fits both myself and my husband. It was easily worth the money. Weight is distributed around your waist/hips by the very well padded waist strap.

This is a fantastic sling! It is soft, adjustable, comfy for both Mom & baby and great value. We have the Galaxy grey one as i love stars and use it with the newborn insert from birth. My 22 month old also loves riding in it! Better than a lot of slings on the market as it has a zipped pouch (fits a nappy, wipes &keys!) and also a hood which is so useful for cold weather/rain/sleeping.Don't hesitate to buy this, its well worth it!
