Our experience of over 10 years with Ergobaby carriers

Baby-Garage-600pxFFIJmtXJbq1EB

As a team at the Baby Garage, we have been selling Ergobaby carriers for 10 years. During this time we have had a lot of experience with a wide variety of baby carriers and we can recommend the Ergobaby carriers to you. Excellent quality, easy handling and ergonomic comfort have been inspiring us and our customers for years. But what exactly makes a stretcher so recommendable? By wearing it, you strengthen the bond with your child and give the baby closeness and security. Carrying it also supports the physical and emotional development of your baby. Body contact often makes babies calmer because they are satisfied and the natural need for closeness and security is met. In addition, you have your hands free and can do everything that arises in everyday life and still have your baby close to you. It goes without saying that all Ergobaby baby carriers feature the ergonomic spread-squat position. The comfort for the parents was also taken care of. Many Ergobaby carriers have reinforced shoulder straps and a lumbar support on the hip belt, so that longer wearing times are pleasant and comfortable. Come to our shop in Schwentinental and let us advise you to find exactly the right carrier for you and your child. We look forward to you.

Welche-Trage1-400px

The different carriers from Ergobaby are as individual as you are. How do you find out which variant to choose? The Omni 360, Omni Breeze, Adapt and Embrace models are already suitable for newborns and can of course be used from birth. The Omni 360 all-in-one baby carrier grows with your child and is a true all-rounder. Can be used from birth (3.2kg) to toddler age (20 kg). This stretcher offers four different ergonomic carrying positions. Of course, a high level of comfort for you as parents was also considered. In addition, the Ergobaby carriers are suitable for all parents with different sizes (XS-XXL) and individual stature, as they can be adjusted in just a few simple steps. The Adapt baby carrier can be used from birth (3.2 kg) to 20 kg and grows with your child. It offers three different carrying positions and enables you to have a particularly close bond with the baby. A lumbar support makes it even more comfortable to carry, and shoulder straps that can be worn crosswise provide a different center of gravity so that the carrier can be carried according to individual preferences. The Embrace newborn baby carrier impresses with its particularly soft fabric, is easy to use and cuddly. With the Embrace you choose the perfect combination of baby carrier and sling.

What is the difference between a baby carrier and a sling?

Unterschied-zwischen-Trage-und-Tragetuch-2-400px
AURA-WRAP_TWINKLE-SILVER_WLASILVER_1-1-Cropped-400px

A newborn baby needs a safe and cozy environment. This works best when you carry your child as close as possible. For this you need a baby carrier or a sling. But what is the difference between the two options and what is the best choice for you? Slings are particularly soft and cozy. They nestle perfectly to the wearer and the baby. However, you need a little practice to put on the slings correctly and you have to learn at least one tying technique. But after you have mastered this little challenge, it is very easy to attach the elastic sling. Thanks to the elastic fabric, the sling can be tied in front of the baby easily and without complications. Then all you need to do is insert your baby. The Aura sling can be used from birth (3.2 kg) up to about a year (11.3 kg). Aura is made of viscose. This is a light, elastic fabric that won't irritate babies' delicate skin. They have no hard edges, buttons, or zippers that could harm the skin of newborns. The breathable fabric keeps your baby and you cool when you wear it. You can then use an Ergobaby carrier after a sling. Alternatively, you can use a stretcher from birth. The big advantage is that baby carriers can be put on and taken off in no time at all. Most of the carrying systems can also be used over a longer period of time than a sling. However, the fabric of a carrier might not be as elastic and cozy as that of a sling.

Newborn deployment - what it is and when do I need it?

<
Neugeboreneneinsatz-400px

A newborn insert is used from birth (3.2 kg) up to approx. 4 months so that your baby can be placed optimally and in an ergonomic position within the carrier. The newborn insert ensures that the legs of the very youngest are crouched and slightly spread apart. The thighs are well supported and the back is slightly rounded. The head and neck are also given the best possible support. Also, make sure that the airways remain clear. The newborn insert is placed inside the carrier so that even the smallest babies can take an optimal position within the carrier. Once your baby is big enough, you no longer need to use this insert. The newborn insert does not have to be used for all Ergobaby carriers. Therefore, when buying, pay attention to when you can start using the stretcher. Some models can be used from birth and without a newborn insert. Others are for older babies 4-5 months old.

How long can I use the baby carrier or sling?

Trage-oder-das-Tragetuch-benutzen-1-400px
Trage-oder-das-Tragetuch-benutzen-2-400pxV7D3DvHiWSbiL

Each carrier is different and has different advantages to offer. Thus, depending on the model, the service life also varies. Some carriers such as the Ergobaby Embrace can be used for about a year from birth (up to 11.3 kg). The Ergobaby Adapt carrier can also be used from birth, grows with the child for a long time and can be used until toddler age (20 kg). So be sure to read the product information before buying an Ergobaby carrier. Some stretchers can be used from birth. These include the Adapt, Embrace, Omni 360 and of course the Aura sling. Other carriers can only be used for babies from about six months. This includes the Original and 360 models. In order to be able to use these two carriers from birth, you also need a newborn insert. The duration of use also varies. Ergobaby offers many different carriers and there is sure to be the right one for you and your needs.

Does the carrier or sling fit everyone or do I need different carriers for different people?

verschiedene-Personen-unterschiedliche-Tragen-1-400px
verschiedene-Personen-unterschiedliche-Tragen-2-400px

Each Ergobaby carrier is individually adjustable and can be configured perfectly for each person. Thus, the carriers can be worn from petite to large sizes (XS-XXL). The straps for adjustment can be set to the right size in a few simple steps so that you can quickly and easily find the right setting for yourself in everyday life. For particularly petite people, the shoulder straps can be crossed over on most Ergobaby carriers. The slings adjust automatically to the respective body size and stature when bunching.

What do I do in winter or on cold and rainy days?

Winter-400px
Regen-400px

So that a stretcher can also be used optimally in winter, it is important to pay attention to a few things. In extremely cold temperatures, it is important to keep an eye on the baby's body temperature. This can be controlled by feeling the neck and between the shoulder blades. It is important to protect the ears and head with a sufficiently large hat, because this is where most of the heat is lost. In general, if your child is cold, you should get warm as quickly as possible. The stretcher replaces a layer of clothing. With the tried and tested onion principle, you can dress your child at any temperature. A wool or fleece overall protects in particularly cold weather. Do not wear thick snowsuits, because these do not let your body heat through to the child. In very cold temperatures, wear the baby as close to your body as possible under the winter jacket. Alternatively, the Ergobaby winter cover 2in1 provides the necessary protection against wind, rain and snow. The soft fleece lining keeps the baby warm and cozy. The winter cover can easily be attached to the Ergobaby carriers with press studs, except for the Embrace carrier and also not for the Aura baby sling.

What are the carrying positions?

Carry on the stomach with the child's view of the person carrying it from birth

Blick-des-Kindes-zum-Tragenden-400px

In the prone position, the baby is carried facing you. This way of carrying can be used from birth until the end of the life of a stretcher. This way of carrying the baby is particularly strong. The proximity promotes the positive hormone production (oxytocin), which enables an even closer bond and gives the baby security and security. In addition, being carried on the stomach enables optimal interaction with the baby and you always have it in view. In this way, the baby is in the comfort zone and can discover the world from the safe environment. The prone carry allows the best interaction with the child and gives him a feeling of security. For this reason, many parents continue to use this method of carrying throughout their infancy. A healthy hunched back and the spread-squat position ensure optimal ergonomic comfort for the baby. Did you already know that wearing this way promotes the early language development of your child? Because babies learn by watching faces and when you carry them on your stomach you are face-to-face with your baby. The front / front carry is possible with all Ergobaby carriers and slings: Omni Breeze, Omni 360, 360, Adapt, Aura, Original and Embrace.

From 5 months, it is also possible to carry it with a view to the front

Blick-nach-vorne-moglich-400px

Carrying the child from the front in the direction of view has everything in view and can explore the world from the perspective of the parents. However, this method of carrying is not suitable for a newborn baby. Your baby should have reached the following developmental stages before you can use the front-facing position in the viewing direction: It is important to have complete neck and head control. In addition, the chin should extend over the back when the child is correctly positioned in the carrier. This is the case when the bottom is lower than the knees. This stage of development is usually reached after 5 to 6 months. For the parents to be as comfortable as possible, your baby should weigh between 6.4 kg and a maximum of 13.4 kg. This way of carrying should be used if your baby develops the urge to always want to look ahead and becomes restless in other ways of carrying. The forward-facing mode of carrying should be used as a short and active wearing time of a maximum of 20 minutes and not as the main way of carrying for several hours, so that the risk of overstimulation is avoided. The front carry in the direction of view can be used with the following Ergobaby carriers: Omni Breeze, Omni 360, Embrace and 360.

Carrying the child sideways from around 6 months of age

Seitliches-Tragen-400px

The hip carry can be used from 6 months +. It is important that the baby has its own head and neck control. For a shorter period of time, this carrying position offers a pleasant alternative to the frontal front carrying position, as the changed position means that the center of gravity is shifted. The baby sits sideways on the hip. As a result, the child sees a lot more than in the frontal prone carry and can see exactly what mom and dad are doing. The close body contact and the ergonomic M-position of the baby's legs and hips are also given when carried by the hips. The hip carry can be used with the following Ergobaby carriers: Adapt, Omni 360, Omni Breeze, 360 and Original.

From 6 months to approx. 4 years - carrying the child on your back

auf-dem-Rucken-400px

So that the back-carrying method can be used for a baby, an independent and safe head and neck control of the child must be given. It is suitable for babies who weigh at least 7.8 kg and can sit independently without support. Every baby develops differently, but as a rule the back carry can be used from 6 months +. Many parents find the back-carrying method more comfortable. Especially in early and heavier children. In this way, the baby is strapped to the back and carried like a backpack. Check that your buttocks are deep in the carrier and that your knees are elevated. It is also important that the airways and face are clear. The backpack can be used with the following Ergobaby carriers: Adapt, Omni 360, Omni Breeze, 360 and Original.

Which carrier or sling is suitable for which child's age?

The baby is carried in the stomach for almost a year during pregnancy. A baby feels safe and secure there. When a baby is born, it discovers a whole new and unfamiliar world. In order to give a newborn a safe environment, close physical contact is very important. A stretcher creates a close bond with the baby, both physically and emotionally. 

A baby is extremely dependent on its parents, especially in the first few months, and physical closeness calms a newborn baby and gives him the security it needs. For this reason, Ergobaby has designed carriers specifically for the needs of newborns. The fabric is particularly soft and cuddly so as not to irritate the delicate baby skin and to make the baby's first year of life as comfortable as possible. Carry your baby close to your body and give as much love and security as possible. 

From birth until the baby weighs around 11.3 kg, you can use the Aura sling and the Embrace soft sling. The more solid models of the Adapt and Omni series are also suitable from birth, but up to approx. 4 years of age. For children from approx. 4 months to 4 years there is even more choice with the Original and 360 carriers. The use of newborn babies also enables these two carriers, Original and 360, to be used from birth. Ergobaby offers different carriers and towels with different properties, but for comparable age groups. In the following, we will briefly introduce you to the functions and special features of the Ergobaby carriers and slings.

Aura

Aura-Cropped-400px

The Aura sling is child's play to tie and is particularly soft and cuddly on the skin. The elastic material is extremely cuddly and makes it easy to “pre-tie” it. Thus, the tying technique of the Aura sling is child's play to learn and use. So you don't need to be afraid of complicated and time-consuming binding techniques. Aura is made of viscose, an extremely soft fabric that will keep you and the baby cool while you cuddle together. Thus, this sling is particularly comfortable for parents and baby and invites you to relax and sleep. Thanks to a central marking, it is even easier to find the beginning of the binding process. Aura can be used from birth (3.6 kg) to approximately one year of age (11.3 kg). The focus is clearly on ergonomic comfort. Aura supports your baby in the ergonomic spread-squat position. The weight is optimally distributed over the back and hips. A healthy hunched back and an ergonomic carrying position ensure the healthy development of your baby. Thanks to its length of 490 cm, parents of all body shapes can comfortably carry the sling and adapt it perfectly to their individual needs. The integrated carrying bag makes it easier to transport when the sling is not in use.

Embrace

Embrace-Cropped-400px

After the birth, your baby needs a lot of physical contact, love and attention. A carrier allows close body contact and creates a safe comfort zone for your baby. Embrace is a mix of a carrier and a sling that meets all of these requirements and creates a safe environment for babies. The Embrace newborn carrier convinces with a super soft material made of jersey, which is just as cuddly and cuddly as a baby sling. The application, however, is just as easy as with a carrying system. Simply close three buckles and the stretcher is ready for use. Since Embrace is a newborn baby carrier, it can of course be used from birth (3.2 kg) to around a year (11.3 kg). Since a baby grows enormously in the first year of life, the carrier also adapts to the body size and grows with the baby. The Embrace can be used in two ergonomic carrying positions: front-facing, front-facing and front-facing, facing. The comfort for the parents is of course not neglected with the Embrace baby carrier. Foldable, crossed shoulder straps and the supportive waist strap distribute the baby's weight evenly. This makes the Embrace particularly back-friendly. The weight of only 480g makes Embrace a real lightweight and even more comfortable to carry.

Adapt

Adapt-Cropped-400px

The Adapt comfort carrier can be used from birth and is ergonomic for the baby. The carrier grows with the baby and can be optimally adjusted at any time to suit the level of development of your child, so that the ergonomically recommended spread-squat position can be adhered to at all times. The Adapt comfort carrier can be carried in three different ways and can be used from birth (3.2 kg) until well into toddler age (20 kg):

Carrying on the stomach: this can be used from birth. For this, the baby must weigh at least 3.2 kg.

Hip carry: This carry option can be used from approx. 6 months up to approx. 12 kg. It is important that your baby has secure head and neck control and lateral stability. 

Carrying on the back: This option is available to you from approx. 6 months. Again, it is important that your baby has safe head and neck control. The backpack can be used up to 20 kg.

The Adapt comfort carrier is intuitive and easy to adjust. The shoulder straps can be worn crossed in addition to the regular way of carrying. This is particularly advantageous for petite parents or babies, as this way of carrying allows a closer fit. In addition, the head and neck rest can be folded and adjusted to the size of the baby. A lumbar support and extra padded shoulder straps ensure the necessary and, above all, long wearing comfort for parents by distributing the weight evenly between hips and shoulders. The Adapt comfort carrier is available in the cotton collection with a particularly soft fabric and in the breathable Cool Air Mesh collection.

Omni 360

Omni-360-Cropped-400px

Omni 360 is a particularly versatile baby carrier that is easy to use, grows with you, ergonomic and comfortable. It can be used from birth (3.2 kg) to toddlers (20 kg). The Ergobaby Omni 360 is a true all-rounder and allows all four carrying positions: front carrying (from birth, at least 3.2 kg), front carrying in the direction of vision (from 5-6 months, from approx. 6.5 to 10 kg for short carrying phases ( approx. 20 minutes) in wakefulness), hip carry (from approx. 6 months up to approx. 12 kg, as soon as safe head control and lateral stability) and back carry (from approx. 6 months up to 20 kg, as soon as safe head control). With the Omni 360 baby carrier, you can carry your baby in an ergonomic and comfortable spread-squat position. It is no problem, quickly and conveniently, to change the way of carrying. The comfort for the parents is not neglected due to the padded shoulder pads, lumbar support and the option to carry the shoulder straps crosswise. A detachable bag also offers space for small items that need to be stowed away. A stowable hood provides the necessary protection from the sun and privacy. The Omni 360 All-In-One baby carrier is available in two different fabric collections. In the pleasantly soft cotton collection and the particularly breathable and air-permeable Cool Air Mesh collection.

Omni Breeze

Omni-Breeze-Cropped-400px

The Omni Breeze is the newest addition to the Ergobaby family of carriers. It is a real all-rounder and sets new standards in terms of breathability thanks to the particularly light SoftFlex mesh fabric. The optimal air permeability in combination with a particularly soft and comfortable feel is completely convincing. The Omni Breeze offers all carrying positions (front carry, front carry in the direction of vision, hip carry and back carry) and grows with your child. It can be used from birth (3.2 kg) up to approximately 4 years of age (20.4 kg). Fast and easy-to-use sliding gliders make the change from front to front carrying in the viewing direction very practical. Of course, long-term comfort for the parents has also been thought of. Shoulder straps that can be worn crosswise and the hip belt with lumbar support ensure that even long trips with the baby carrier are pleasant and comfortable. Reflective details offer safety in the dark and in the gray season. A padded head and neck support as well as a sun and privacy screen protect the sensitive baby head. Small items such as a key or smartphone can be stowed in the practical side pocket. All carrying positions are easy to set and uncomplicated to adjust. You can carry your child in all ways in the ergonomic M-position. It is important that the bottom is lower than the knees and the thighs are supported by the fabric of the stretcher up to the hollows of the knees.

360

360-400px

With the Ergobaby 360 baby carrier you can comfortably transport your child in all 4 possible ergonomic carrying positions. You can use the carrier flexibly and practically from around four months (5.5 kg) to toddler age (20 kg). If you want to use the Ergobaby 360 baby carrier from birth, you can purchase a separate newborn. This baby carrier is particularly handy and the individual carrying positions can be changed quickly and easily. You can use the front carry with the 360 ​​from 4 months. This carrying position is particularly suitable for cuddling and sleeping. In addition, you always have your baby in view. The front-facing position can be used from around 5 months for a short time (around 20 minutes) and is ideal for particularly curious children. The hip and back carrying method can be used from about 6 months. It is important to ensure that your baby has secure head and neck control and sufficient lateral stability. Of course, there is an ergonomic spread-squat position in all carrying positions. The 360 ​​baby carrier from Ergobaby offers a lot of ergonomic comfort for babies and parents. An adjustable neck support provides the necessary support for smaller babies and a hood protects the child from rain, wind and sun. For you as a parent, padded shoulder straps and a lumbar support on the hip belt ensure a comfortable fit. The 360 ​​baby carrier from Ergobaby is available in two different fabric collections. In the cotton collection, the fabric is particularly soft and cozy. Alternatively, you can opt for particularly breathable mesh fabric. On warm days and on particularly long walks, the mesh fabric ensures the necessary air circulation so that you and your baby do not sweat. Nevertheless, your child is well protected and warmly wrapped up even on cold days.

The forward-facing mode of carrying should be used as a short and active wearing time of a maximum of 20 minutes and not as the main way of carrying for several hours, so that the risk of overstimulation is avoided. The front carry in the direction of view can be used with the following Ergobaby carriers: Omni Breeze, Omni 360, Embrace and 360.

Carrying the child sideways from around 6 months of age

Seitliches-Tragen-400px

The hip carry can be used from 6 months +. It is important that the baby has its own head and neck control. For a shorter period of time, this carrying position offers a pleasant alternative to the frontal front carrying position, as the changed position means that the center of gravity is shifted. The baby sits sideways on the hip. As a result, the child sees a lot more than in the frontal prone carry and can see exactly what mom and dad are doing. The close body contact and the ergonomic M-position of the baby's legs and hips are also given when carried by the hips. The hip carry can be used with the following Ergobaby carriers: Adapt, Omni 360, Omni Breeze, 360 and Original.

From 6 months to approx. 4 years - carrying the child on your back

auf-dem-Rucken-400px

So that the back-carrying method can be used for a baby, an independent and safe head and neck control of the child must be given. It is suitable for babies who weigh at least 7.8 kg and can sit independently without support. Every baby develops differently, but as a rule the back carry can be used from 6 months +. Many parents find the back-carrying method more comfortable. Especially in early and heavier children. In this way, the baby is strapped to the back and carried like a backpack. Check that your buttocks are deep in the carrier and that your knees are elevated. It is also important that the airways and face are clear. The backpack can be used with the following Ergobaby carriers: Adapt, Omni 360, Omni Breeze, 360 and Original.

Which carrier or sling is suitable for which child's age?

The baby is carried in the stomach for almost a year during pregnancy. A baby feels safe and secure there. When a baby is born, it discovers a whole new and unfamiliar world. In order to give a newborn a safe environment, close physical contact is very important. A stretcher creates a close bond with the baby, both physically and emotionally. 

A baby is extremely dependent on its parents, especially in the first few months, and physical closeness calms a newborn baby and gives him the security it needs. For this reason, Ergobaby has designed carriers specifically for the needs of newborns. The fabric is particularly soft and cuddly so as not to irritate the delicate baby skin and to make the baby's first year of life as comfortable as possible. Carry your baby close to your body and give as much love and security as possible. 

From birth until the baby weighs around 11.3 kg, you can use the Aura sling and the Embrace soft sling. The more solid models of the Adapt and Omni series are also suitable from birth, but up to approx. 4 years of age. For children from approx. 4 months to 4 years there is even more choice with the Original and 360 carriers. The use of newborn babies also enables these two carriers, Original and 360, to be used from birth. Ergobaby offers different carriers and towels with different properties, but for comparable age groups. In the following, we will briefly introduce you to the functions and special features of the Ergobaby carriers and slings.

Aura

Aura-Cropped-400px

The Aura sling is child's play to tie and is particularly soft and cuddly on the skin. The elastic material is extremely cuddly and makes it easy to “pre-tie” it. Thus, the tying technique of the Aura sling is child's play to learn and use. So you don't need to be afraid of complicated and time-consuming binding techniques. Aura is made of viscose, an extremely soft fabric that will keep you and the baby cool while you cuddle together. Thus, this sling is particularly comfortable for parents and baby and invites you to relax and sleep. Thanks to a central marking, it is even easier to find the beginning of the binding process. Aura can be used from birth (3.6 kg) to approximately one year of age (11.3 kg). The focus is clearly on ergonomic comfort. Aura supports your baby in the ergonomic spread-squat position. The weight is optimally distributed over the back and hips. A healthy hunched back and an ergonomic carrying position ensure the healthy development of your baby. Thanks to its length of 490 cm, parents of all body shapes can comfortably carry the sling and adapt it perfectly to their individual needs. The integrated carrying bag makes it easier to transport when the sling is not in use.

Embrace

Embrace-Cropped-400px

After the birth, your baby needs a lot of physical contact, love and attention. A carrier allows close body contact and creates a safe comfort zone for your baby. Embrace is a mix of a carrier and a sling that meets all of these requirements and creates a safe environment for babies. The Embrace newborn carrier convinces with a super soft material made of jersey, which is just as cuddly and cuddly as a baby sling. The application, however, is just as easy as with a carrying system. Simply close three buckles and the stretcher is ready for use. Since Embrace is a newborn baby carrier, it can of course be used from birth (3.2 kg) to around a year (11.3 kg). Since a baby grows enormously in the first year of life, the carrier also adapts to the body size and grows with the baby. The Embrace can be used in two ergonomic carrying positions: front-facing, front-facing and front-facing, facing. The comfort for the parents is of course not neglected with the Embrace baby carrier. Foldable, crossed shoulder straps and the supportive waist strap distribute the baby's weight evenly. This makes the Embrace particularly back-friendly. The weight of only 480g makes Embrace a real lightweight and even more comfortable to carry.

Adapt

Adapt-Cropped-400px

The Adapt comfort carrier can be used from birth and is ergonomic for the baby. The carrier grows with the baby and can be optimally adjusted at any time to suit the level of development of your child, so that the ergonomically recommended spread-squat position can be adhered to at all times. The Adapt comfort carrier can be carried in three different ways and can be used from birth (3.2 kg) until well into toddler age (20 kg):

Carrying on the stomach: this can be used from birth. For this, the baby must weigh at least 3.2 kg.

Hip carry: This carry option can be used from approx. 6 months up to approx. 12 kg. It is important that your baby has secure head and neck control and lateral stability. 

Carrying on the back: This option is available to you from approx. 6 months. Again, it is important that your baby has safe head and neck control. The backpack can be used up to 20 kg.

The Adapt comfort carrier is intuitive and easy to adjust. The shoulder straps can be worn crossed in addition to the regular way of carrying. This is particularly advantageous for petite parents or babies, as this way of carrying allows a closer fit. In addition, the head and neck rest can be folded and adjusted to the size of the baby. A lumbar support and extra padded shoulder straps ensure the necessary and, above all, long wearing comfort for parents by distributing the weight evenly between hips and shoulders. The Adapt comfort carrier is available in the cotton collection with a particularly soft fabric and in the breathable Cool Air Mesh collection.

Omni 360

Omni-360-Cropped-400px

Omni 360 is a particularly versatile baby carrier that is easy to use, grows with you, ergonomic and comfortable. It can be used from birth (3.2 kg) to toddlers (20 kg). The Ergobaby Omni 360 is a true all-rounder and allows all four carrying positions: front carrying (from birth, at least 3.2 kg), front carrying in the direction of vision (from 5-6 months, from approx. 6.5 to 10 kg for short carrying phases ( approx. 20 minutes) in wakefulness), hip carry (from approx. 6 months up to approx. 12 kg, as soon as safe head control and lateral stability) and back carry (from approx. 6 months up to 20 kg, as soon as safe head control). With the Omni 360 baby carrier, you can carry your baby in an ergonomic and comfortable spread-squat position. It is no problem, quickly and conveniently, to change the way of carrying. The comfort for the parents is not neglected due to the padded shoulder pads, lumbar support and the option to carry the shoulder straps crosswise. A detachable bag also offers space for small items that need to be stowed away. A stowable hood provides the necessary protection from the sun and privacy. The Omni 360 All-In-One baby carrier is available in two different fabric collections. In the pleasantly soft cotton collection and the particularly breathable and air-permeable Cool Air Mesh collection.

Omni Breeze

Omni-Breeze-Cropped-400px

The Omni Breeze is the newest addition to the Ergobaby family of carriers. It is a real all-rounder and sets new standards in terms of breathability thanks to the particularly light SoftFlex mesh fabric. The optimal air permeability in combination with a particularly soft and comfortable feel is completely convincing. The Omni Breeze offers all carrying positions (front carry, front carry in the direction of vision, hip carry and back carry) and grows with your child. It can be used from birth (3.2 kg) up to approximately 4 years of age (20.4 kg). Fast and easy-to-use sliding gliders make the change from front to front carrying in the viewing direction very practical. Of course, long-term comfort for the parents has also been thought of. Shoulder straps that can be worn crosswise and the hip belt with lumbar support ensure that even long trips with the baby carrier are pleasant and comfortable. Reflective details offer safety in the dark and in the gray season. A padded head and neck support as well as a sun and privacy screen protect the sensitive baby head. Small items such as a key or smartphone can be stowed in the practical side pocket. All carrying positions are easy to set and uncomplicated to adjust. You can carry your child in all ways in the ergonomic M-position. It is important that the bottom is lower than the knees and the thighs are supported by the fabric of the stretcher up to the hollows of the knees.

With the Ergobaby 360 baby carrier you can comfortably transport your child in all 4 possible ergonomic carrying positions. You can use the carrier flexibly and practically from around four months (5.5 kg) to toddler age (20 kg).

This baby carrier is particularly handy and the individual carrying positions can be changed quickly and easily. You can use the front carry with the 360 ​​from 4 months. This carrying position is particularly suitable for cuddling and sleeping. In addition, you always have your baby in view. The front-facing position can be used from around 5 months for a short time (around 20 minutes) and is ideal for particularly curious children. The hip and back carrying method can be used from about 6 months. It is important to ensure that your baby has secure head and neck control and sufficient lateral stability. Of course, there is an ergonomic spread-squat position in all carrying positions. The 360 ​​baby carrier from Ergobaby offers a lot of ergonomic comfort for babies and parents. An adjustable neck support provides the necessary support for smaller babies and a hood protects the child from rain, wind and sun.
