Most Helpful Reviews on the ERGObaby Organic Baby Carrier.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – … The bjorn worked out great for the first few months; however, once my son reached 18 pounds and 27 inches it became really cumbersome to carry him out in front…. This is where the Ergo comes in…. I love that the carrier allows for a few different carrying positions. I can carry my son on my hip, my back and my front.

  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – Love, love, love the Ergo. Worth every penny!…  It is easy to use and comfortable for both me & my son.

I have a short torso, and if I were any shorter, I think I’d look for another soft structured carrier (non-crotch-dangling)…. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  • 1.0 out of 5 stars(1/5) – … The directions were difficult to understand, and when I finally figured out I would also need an infant insert, I was somewhat dismayed. I tried sticking my 2 month old daughter in it, and realized something was wrong and I needed help…. I ended up trying on the Moby, and it was much easier to use on my own, felt safer for baby, is cheaper, and to my delight, quite comfortable to wear and easy on the back….
