Rated 5 out of 5 by Bmom Most-used baby item My husband put this on our registry because he had a vision of carrying our daughter all over in it--I think he used it 3 times because he found it too hot to have her snuggled in. That said, I--who thought I would *never* use it because a sling would be so much easier to carry--put it on when our daughter hit 14 lbs and never looked back. I took her *everywhere* in this until she was 32 lbs and also used it to soothe her to sleep (she was a terrible napper). You really need to figure out what adjustment works for you (I am a small 5'4'' woman), but once you get the setting right and work out the back clip, it's very comfortable. I did find the backpack mode difficult to use until my daughter was old enough to "help"--the videos of moms balancing babies and whipping this thing around didn't really work for me. Also washed this about a million times and it really held up. May 21, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by GabbyGal Awkward for baby and me. I had high hopes for the ergo based on rave reviews from others, and I was eager to "baby wear," but my baby and I just didn't take to it. I could never adjust it in a way that was both comfortable for me and that did not completely block my baby's view, which made her very unhappy and therefore unwilling to ride along. I did use it a few times for discreet breastfeeding, and that was great, but it did not work out for us for general out-and-about-around-town use. May 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Best of the bunch With my older kids we had the Bjorn, and this Ergo seemed much more comfortable for both the baby and the parent. (I didnt love that they seemed to be balancing on their crotch!) My husband is 6'4" and used it a lot comfortably; I am 5''8' and also used it with a slight adjustment in the strap. I dont think using it past 20 lbs is really that practical, but I have seen others do it. December 11, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by SophieS Surprisingly uncomfortable The Ergo was highly recommended to us by several people, so we enthusiastically purchased it along with the newborn insert. Once our baby girl arrived we started using it and found it to be incredibly awkward and uncomfortable -- both for my husband and me -- and for our little baby. It was bulky and complicated and I felt like I was cramming my baby into something. We gave up on the Ergo and bought another (well known) brand and we're very happy. Sadly the Ergo was a waste of $$ for us since I believe it's too late to return it to Giggle. I know a lot of people love this product, but for some reason it really did not work for us, though we did give it a good effort. October 24, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by HenrysMama 3 months in, loving it... My baby and I love the ERGObaby Sport! I am 5'-5" and of medium build. My husband is 6'-3" and of medium build. This carrier is comfortable for both of us, which is saying a lot! My baby has just graduated to not needing the infant insert anymore and so far, so good. I use it to take Baby with me to the store down the street, on lengthier trips to Babies R Us, and we just got back from 6 days in San Francisco where we used it everyday! Only drawback would be that you can't really sit comfortably while wearing it and Baby, but I think that's the case for all front-loading baby carriers? Makes for interesting posture when sitting in the pews at church... July 26, 2011
Rated 3 out of 5 by SMmommy Good not great This is great for proper weight distribution but if you are more petite, the straps are too wide. It would be great if Ergo carriers could also be forward facing. I haven't tried the hip position so I may not need forward facing, but the baby gets sick of the backward facing position.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Creative2thebone LOVE We have had three different carriers and nothing compares. The ERGObaby is great for both parents to use. I would recommend ERGObaby to any one needing a carrier. March 10, 2011
