When I first saw this item, I laughed and said why would anyone spend so much on a baby carrier! Yes my own carrier was extremely uncomfortable, it dug into my shoulders, made my back hurt- but I put it down to being second hand, and it's not like any can actually be comfy, right?
Well, a friend bought this and one day we were out together and she let me borrow it. And...wow! It really really was so comfy! Baby settled quickly, safe and snuggled up to mama. It didn't feel heavy, there was no uncomfortable tug at my shoulders like my own carrier had, it just sits so nicely on the hips and balances out the weight in a way it just feels so natural. I loved it so much, I went home and bought my own. £130 from amazon, well spent. I have now used this carrier both for a toddler on my back, and for a newborn on the front with the newborn insert in, and no matter how it's worn I have never once been uncomfortable, and the little ones love it too!
So why would anyone spend so much on a baby carrier? Because price reflects quality! It seems expensive at first glance but once you try it on, you'll never go back to a cheap carrier again. Take the chance on this one. Trust me, your back and shoulders will thank you!
This is a good quality baby carrier. It’s nice to have baby close to you when out for walks and also useful around the house! With the ergo baby 360, you can carry your baby in many different positions: outward, inward, hip and on your back. You can use the carrier when your baby is newborn using the newborn insert provided. This is easily removed when there baby is older. At first putting the carrier on can be tricky, but once you get the hang of it it’s easy. My baby loves been in it especially facing outwards so she can see what’s going on! The straps are easily adjustable so both parents can wear it. The baby can get heavy in it after a while so not for use on a long day!
A bit awkward to put on compared to some other carriers
Value for money
It’s a really sturdy carrier and safe to use for newborns with the insert and safe for hips and can carry baby in multiple positions. It’s also the go to carriers advised by dance and exercise classes specifically for mother baby dance (DLAM) and exercise (Carifit). It’s a bit more awkward to put on with Velcro and clips and very bulky so can get hot compared to Babybjorn which is quick and easy with just a couple clips
I cannot praise this carrier highly enough. It is perfect from newborn right up to toddlerhood! I used it a lot with my first baby and even more with my second so this well worth the price tag. There are multiple positions that you can use the carrier in and once you have figured out each way, it is very easy and keeps baby safe and snug! It is particularly great and making sure that the weight is balance with a waist strap and well as shoulder straps. You can easily baby wear most of the day
Great carrier for baby. Use them newborn for when baby is young but that can get very hot in summer as coccoons them. I ended up using the booster cushion part of the newborn insert only and supporting head myself. Used carrier on my previous child for over two years as could use as back carry. This carrier ensures baby/child is always in a frog leg position which isn’t best for their hips and development. This carrier was a life saver for my first child who refused to go in from and on those outings when pram is awkward. My husband also uses this and finds it easy to use and comfortable. Straps easy to alter between him using it and then me. Has handy large compartments at front for phone, keys and a muzzie. The extra material/hood is also good if a little windy, sunny or for when baby is sleeping and needs no distractions. Would highly recommend and worth the cost compared to the cheaper versions.
My daughter love being in her carrier, it is very comfortable for me and her, easy to use when I am on my own. It easy to wash and drys quite quickly! It have a hood so you can protect you baby’s head! It great that you can use it on you front and hip! We had a baby insert which was great and easy to put in and out of the carrier
Love this carrier, love that it’s safe for my babies hips. He loves facing outwards and being nosey! Always take this out wherever we go as he’s not the biggest fan of his pushchair! I always use it round the house too when I need to get jobs done as my 8 month old is very clingy at the moment! It is a lifesaver!
Is it’s gets dirty need to wash it can’t just wipe it like other synthetic ones
Value for money
I love it. It’s a little bit tricky at the beginning with baby insert but later when you don’t need it it’s great. Really comfortable. I’m using it now for my second one and it’s still in good condition as it’s good quality one. Padding for shoulders are comfortable. Baby always feels secure and comfortable. Like the hood when little one sleeping don’t need to worry about head. It’s takes up a bit of space you can’t fold it really small but I prefer it to my lightweight carrier because when baby gets bigger and heavier extra padding is so much comfortable than lightweights sling.
Very useful, we’ve used it since our daughter’s 3rd month up until she was a toddler and we can carry her. The downside is when the baby is forward facing and your baby has big/chunky thighs, a part of the carrier where her thighs are placed can be a little bit uncomfortable/pinching. Best to use when baby is facing you and not facing forward. Other than that this carrier is a life saver!
We really like this carrier. Our baby isn’t a fan of the pushchair and we also have a dog that gets walked where there are no paths, so the ergobaby 360 carrier has been brilliant. It’s great that it has a newborn insert so can be used from birth, we love that it has 4 different positions for baby to sit/face with growth. Only downside for me is that for my back I could do with crossed straps, but my husband gets on really well with it. The user manual it comes with is also brilliantly helpful for first time parents like us!
I did a lot of research before purchasing our baby carrier and most of the recommendations said to go for this one, so I did! And on the whole I’ve been really pleased with it. It’s comfy, baby feels safe in it and looks comfortable- and has the bonus of offering the newborn insert so can put them in it when they are tiny!
The only problem I have with it, and for me it’s quite a big problem is that I can’t put it on by myself, I need someone else with me. There is a clip on the back which secures the carrier on, but it’s up too high on my back and I can’t reach to clip it together!!
This carrier came in really useful with my first baby. I struggled with sling carriers and wraps as I could not get them on and get baby in by myself. This carrier however, was much easier and I really liked that. It's also simple to wash if it gets spit-up on it. The only downside to me was the price, but it was worth it in the end.
I’ve used ergobaby carrier since my baby was born with the insert for newborn. It is very comfortable and my baby loved to sleep in it. Now she is 6 months and we still use it a lot when we go out. I think it is one of the best carrier!
Comfortable, easy to use, widely available, multiple positions for carrying
One of the more expensive carriers, infant insert sold separately, Velcro strap is quite loud
Value for money
We love this carrier and would definitely recommend it for use from birth with the infant insert. Unlike other carriers, it hugs the baby close to you and allows them to curl their legs in the frog position, rather than suspending or hanging. It's also more comfortable for the adult wearing it by comparison to other carriers. The easily adjustable straps allow myself and my husband to wear it safely and comfortably. It provides very good back support and is easy to put on. There is also a useful cover, which I've used as shelter from sunlight and light rain.
Although this carrier is well worth its cost, my only complaint is that the waist belt fastens with Velcro and it’s very noisy to undo when the baby has fallen asleep.
My youngest loves this carrier. It lasts ages and until they’re toddlers. You can use it front or back. It’s really comfy and doesn’t cause my back to ache like other carriers even when baby is bigger and getting heavier. It puts baby in a great position with their legs so not just dangling. It isn’t the easiest to get on and off yourself but it gets easier the more times you do it. It’s quite a lot of money to buy but I think worth it
This is an amazing carrier!
It is comfortable for the wearer and the baby, baby is super secure and there is an insert for newborn.
Our little one falls asleep almost immediately when in it so I bring it with me even if I have the pram just in case!
It is really easy to use. All my mum friends have one and we swear by it! Totally worth the price as well, seems expensive but no more than other top quality carriers.
Top tip, don't buy a carrier until your baby is born so you can test out which carrier is most comfortable for you and your baby (get a sling for when they are first born the get a carrier as soon as you can)
I love this carrier with having other children baby wearing is very important to me and so is having a supportive carrier which this is. I have used it for 2 of my kids and it's very comfortable and easy to put on.
It get both you and baby too hot in very warm weather
Value for money
I love this carrier. We live an active life and enjoy walks with the dog. This carrier allows practicality for active living with both hands being free. Another benefit is that it is so versatile and both myself and my partner can use the carrier as it is so adjustable. Also, with all the different way to wear it can last years. Well worth the money
We loved using our baby carrier with our first, and now we have a newborn we anticipating using it much more now!
Looks really modern & great for Dads too! Packs away nice & small too.
Only difficulty we found was using it for a newborn as we just couldn't get her legs in what felt a comfortable position for her (but most likely that was us being overly cautious first time parents), but once she was older we found it was brilliant for walks!
Comfortable for baby and parent, looks nice, secure
Value for money
I've bought this for my new born (who is almost a month old now) and an already making use out of it. It really is very comfortable for the parent, I haven't had any discomfort while carrying the baby (and she's almost 5kg already). The baby looks very snug in it and always falls asleep really quickly. The baby is secure in it, I don't have to hold her with my hands for extra support. It was a bit complicated to use it first time around and to get it on on my own but after a few tries I realised it's really quite straight forward. I have it with me even when going on a walk with a pram because sometimes the baby gets fussy and it's just so easy to stick her into the carrier and have her fall asleep immediately. Also it looks really nice.
The only down side for me so far was the price - it's not cheap esp with the baby insert. I do have to say it's worth the price. We absolutely love it and plan to keep using it.
I cannot fault this product. I have used it for newborns as well as children up to 3 years old. It is so comfy and easy to use. If I had to think of a fault it would be that it can be quite difficult to get kids on your back if you are by yourself. However, it's not impossible and I have always managed it. You get the hang of it!!
This is by far the best carrier I’ve ever used.
It’s so easy to get on and off all by myself where as I’ve struggled with previous carriers.
I love how versatile it and that I can use for both my newborn and my toddler. They both loved being carried so for me this is an added bonus.
