We bought this when our little girl was about 6 months old. We haven’t used it facing inwards as she likes to be out seeing what is going on. It is very comfortable to wear, even for long periods of time. Our little girl enjoys being in it too and seems comfortable on walks.
It is simple to adjust and we often swap between mum and dad with ease. The only thing that can be difficult is the shoulder clip if you are on your own.
I had been worried about using a carrier when our little one was first born but feel she is really secure in this and wish we had bought it sooner.
I use this daily and couldn’t live it without. I have used it from day one and since my little one has stomach issues, sometimes it was the only place he was happy. He loves facing out and watching the world and will happily cuddle up and go to sleep facing it. It distributes the weight evenly so even with a large baby I don’t get back ache from wearing it. The hood is great for sheltering from rain and sun and also blocks out the light to help them sleep.
We tried a 360 before the Omni and this is far better, no need for an insert and very comfortable for both myself and my partner.
It is one of the few carriers that I found to be comfortable as a man as it fits across my chest and back without squishing our daughter.
A lot of the carriers we tried were great for my partner but then wouldn’t adjust large enough for me to wear comfortably and we could not share the carrying when out for the day.
As a new Dad and not having my daughter as much as my partner I am not as quick to adjust straps and juggle our daughter from car seat to carrier but I have found this carrier easy to use and new Dad proof!
I love this product so much, we have used it pretty much from birth for our LO who was 7lb12 at birth. She loved being so snuggly and close and it meant I could get things done when she wanted to be clingy. Now at 3 months she loves to face the world when we go for walks. I have a bad back (curved spine) and the ergo has made carrying my LO a pleasure rather than a pain.
This was purchased for a holiday I went on where it would not have been easy to use the pushchair. My baby is 6 months old so I don’t know how good the product would be for a younger baby, however it is able to be used for a newborn without an insert which is a major plus! The carrier was comfortable to wear and I was able to complete an hours walk quite comfortably.
It could be argued that the carrier is a little pricey compared to similar products however I believe this is justified due to the fact that there are four carry positions and no need to purchase an additional insert for a newborn.
Overall the product is great and I would definitely recommend it.
Very comfortable to wear with well padded shoulder straps and wide lumbar support. Love the ability to breastfeed while wearing the carrier. Love that it can be used from newborn to 20kg. Only downside was my husband could use it as the back safety strap wasn't big enough.
This was purchased as a present for us and at first I was do confused by all the guidelines to follow when first using but once I got my head around them and how to get my little one in on my own, it was a doddle! It's a shame you have to purchase the dribble attachment separate as now he's forward facing the fabric gets soaked!!
The little hood in its secret compartment is handy.
Lightweight, fit well to my body and supported back, suppprted baby well
Can be tricky to put on by yourself initially, pricy
Value for money
We were offering the Ergo as a first having done masses of research on baby carriers and researching this one. We love the lightweight structure of the ergo and options for multiple positions. We also had the newborn insert which was a must have in those early days for us travelling to see family overseas. We used it right up until our little guy was 18 months and we’ll be using it again with our imminent #2 arrival. I would only dock a few points for the ease to put this on yourself. It took me a good 3-4 weeks to figure out the best way for me which I feel is a bit of a pain. Also it is quite pricy but given that we’ve used ours extensively and haven’t hurt out back in the process, I think it has been a very worthwhile investment which we’ll continue to get more use out of over the next 18 months with our little girl.
I was late the game buying this when my baby was 8 months old, until then I was using a baby wrap. After buying this I asked myself why I didn’t buy it sooner! It carry’s the weight of the baby so well that you hardly feel then! And for that me and my back are truly grateful! Little pricey but worth it.
I love that carrier, design is great and looks fab. Baby is well supported and comfortable in it, so many positions to carry baby in it and all of them works fine. Just straps for your shoulders are well cushioned. Just one down point is that material get dirty quick, but not a big problem as it is machine washable.
This is a fantastic carrier which I used from 6 months to almost 2. It’s light weight and easy to use, great for out and about.
My little boy was always very happy to be in this carrier and it was great for holidays and walks.
