After using an older version of the Baby Bjorn with my previous two children I fancied a change as I found the Bjorn would cause back and shoulder ache. I attended a sling library (a place to try different types and style of baby carriers). I hired the Ergobaby 360 omni. All I can say is what an amazing baby carrier. My little girl who hardly sleeps loves being in it and falls asleep without fail. It is so quick and easy to put on and adjust whilst the baby is in the carrier. If I could wear this all the time (including driving) i would as it is so comfortable. I cannot wait till my baby girl is a little older and I can wear her on my back. I have now purchased my own and yes it is expensive to buy but it is worth every penny. I wear it for cooking, doing the washing, school runs, food shopping and pretty much anything else you need noth hands for.
We LOVE this baby carrier.
We bought this even before baby was born, and we knew we would need one for the dog walks we would be going on. My other half researched what the best one was and this was the winner.
I was able to comfortably wear this following my c section and also had bo back aches or anything like that when carrying baby for 1 hour plus.
it comes in lots of nice patterns (we went for navy) wish I'd gone for something more vibrant now though!
We use it forward facing and baby is very comfortable and also rear facing and comfortable in that too.
Comfy to wear, and strong enough to carry my toddler
Can be a little tricky to put on by yourself
Value for money
Have been using this carrier since my son was 1month old, he is now 18months old and its still great.
The sunshade is a very useful addition, and I love the pattern of the carrier.
I found it extremely comfortable to wear. Recently carrying my son around the woods by myself for most of the day, with no aches or pains.
Bought this carrier as a previous carrier was giving me back pain. So far using this omni one I've been fine- very comfortable. We bought the mesh version so keeps us both cool.
Easy enough to put on yourself but the clip is hard to fasten yourself if you've got baby in.
Love the ergo 360. I like that it can be used from birth to provide safe and secure carrying. My daughter has also enjoyed being able to forward face and back carry as she has got bigger. Even though it is quite pricey it can be used for a long period of time, so worked out as a very good long term investment.
Easy to strap on and insert baby into, no back pain, comes with useful rain cover for the head
Quite bulky compared to some carriers

We love this carrier! I have a soft fabric sling which was great for a newborn and around the house but the onni 360 is better now he is a bit older, bigger and heavier and definitely feels more secure to carry him around in!
This carrier is so adaptable and our baby is really comfortable in it. We’ve used since birth and I love the way you can have baby inward facing when they’re small or for naps and then outward facing / on your back as they get older. I particularly love it because it puts the weight on your hips so saves you from back pain!
Very supportive, easy to put on, baby seems comfortable

We've been using this carrier since my son was 7 weeks old and love it! He's now a very big 6 month old and it's still just as comfortable to wear. We tried out a couple cheaper carriers (which we borrowed from friends) and they all made my back and shoulders really ache. I believe that with this type of product you definitely pay for what you get. I bought mine (on offer) for £100 and it has been well worth every penny! I love that my son can go in multiple positions and that there was no need to buy any newborn insert.
Its also very handy that it comes with the extra little bag which is perfect size for my phone, key and dummy. To begin with I had it on the band under baby, but the bigger he got, the harder it got to access. I've since found out it can be moved to the band on the side which is much easier to get to.
When I first started using this carrier I found it really tricky to take on and off. This was however I was doing it wrong! Ergobaby have put many videos on YouTube which have since shown me how to do it correctly. It's now so easy to put on I'm so glad I got this particular carrier.
Overall we love this carrier as a family. It makes walking the dogs so much easier, and your not restricted to buggy friendly paths. Dont let the price put you off, it's worth every penny and my back and shoulders have been saved!
Comfort, easy to use, baby can go in multiple positions
No storage pocket, price
Value for money
This is a lovely sling. It is very supportive for baby and comfy for the wearer. Minimal back ache, love the fact i am able to breastfeed when wearing it too. It is easy to use and put on when alone (after a few practice’s). The only negative is that there is no storage pocket, which would be handy for a nappy/purse etc.
Comfortable, easy to use, comes with a great sun protector
Too big for a small newborn, the pocket is hard to get to

I bought this when my daughter was 10 weeks old and we feel in love with it straight away. It is so comfortable to use as the lumbar support for my back helps eliminate any lower back pain. My daughter always seems very comfortable in it too. I love the sun visor that is included to go up over babies head, this has even been used during light showers. I wouldn’t want to use this type of carrier for a newborn however as I just don’t feel like they would be secure enough unless they were heavier weight when born. My daughter was 10lb when we started to use this and even then she seemed quite small in it. The pocket is placed underneath babies bum so it can be difficult to access it when baby is in the carrier which is a little annoying. Other than that we absolutely love this carrier so much! It’s expensive but worth it 100%
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

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.
