I am going to start off this blog by reviewing my most favorite baby-related buy to date! Its the Ergo baby carrier and seriously, I am in love. I NEVER wore my first son at all, but the lovely www.babysteals.com was featuring the Ergo baby carrier and I figured for $70, it was worth a try. W.O.W. even my husband says the money was more than worth it for this little gem! I got the black organic embroidered ergo and she is just lovely. Nice and soft for my babe to fall asleep in (which he ALWAYS does, usually within 5 mins of being put in there!) and comfy for me to wear for any length of time. I began to use the ergo when Brayden was just a month old. They have a separate infant insert for newborns, but I found that if I rolled up a towel or large receiving blanket, my baby was lifted up to the position he should be in for the carrier to work effectively. The first time I wore him it was to trim the hedges, and he was in there for over an hour snoozing while I got my yardwork done! I also routinely put by 2.5 year old (35 lbs) on my back for walks and whatever else and not only does he love it, but my back NEVER GETS SORE! Seriously, this carrier is genius! I am selling one of my strollers because my babe is now 4 months old and he has never been in a stroller- why bother if you can just throw this carrier in your diaper bag? Saves you space in your car for big shopping trips and also saves your back because you dont have to lug that huge stroller around loading and reloading it in the car!
I give this baby carrier 5/5 stars because honestly my only complaint is that we get a little hot when I have my baby in the carrier for longer than an hour. But whenever you carry a baby against your body you are going to get warm, thats how our bodies work! The Ergo is also extremely easy to get on and only takes a few minutes to adjust the fit. Ergo has also recently come out with a new style called the Ergo Performance. I love the new colors and I am seriously considering buying a second at full price because 1) totally worth the money and 2) I wear this carrier everyday, so it would be nice to have some variety!
Thank you so much for reading my very first blog about one of my most favorite buys to date! Please come and read again soon! :)
