review: ergobaby 360 baby carrier

I love baby wearing.  It’s so easy and practical.  Plus LJ loves being able to see the world for a different point of view.ergobabym&l

Ergobaby recently came out with a new carrier – the Four Position 360.  I was intrigued, especially since LJ was outgrowing his other baby carrier.  What I loved most – and different from other carriers – is that I can wear LJ four ways (most carriers are two ways).    The Four Position 360 Baby Carrier provides four comfortable and ergonomic ways to wear baby: Front-Inward, Front-Outward, Hip and Back carry positions. You should see LJ front-outward facing when we’re at Whole Foods or Target; he’s seriously funny and knows how to get the attention of the whole store (he’s such a ham).

I knew the Ergo would be great for quick, every day events: errands, grocery shopping, house work, walks around the neighborhood. But could it function – both from a fit and comfort perspective – on more rigorous adventures? I decided to put the Ergo 360 to the test!  A couple of weeks ago our family ventured to Shenandoah National Park for a  a four mile hike and I decided it would be best (and easiest) to wear LJ.

We started the hike with LJ in the back carry position.  It was so comfortable, for both of us, that LJ fell asleep 15 minutes into the hike!  He slept for about 40 minutes and seemed snug (as a bug in a rug) for the entirety of his nap.  After his nap, I moved him to front -outward facing so he could see what was going on: colors, trees, animals, etc.  He didn’t get upset once and liked both positions.  I would say that back facing was more comfortable for me during the hike (but that would be true about any carrier; I mean, it makes sense that you wear a backpack on your back).  Another great feature, is that the Ergo is breathable and fairly lightweight; we didn’t get hot once, even in the heat of the summer.  Overall, the Ergo withstood the test.

{where to buy}
I ordered my Ergobaby 360 from authorized dealer, Maison Drake.  Maison Drake offers everything for baby, child, and mother. I’ve ordered quite a few things from MD; customer service is wonderful and orders arrive quickly (which is what I need when I’m ordering something for LJ!).  Plus, there are so many great brands to choose from (a few of my favorites: Aden & Anais, Milkmakers (when I don’t make my own lactation cookies), Chewbeads, and more).

Use code MDSAVE15 to receive 15% off your first order (Ergobaby included in this deal)

I can’t say enough good things about the Ergo 360.  If you’re a babywearing pro, or new to the art of wearing your baby, the Ergobaby 360 is the way to go. You’ll love being able to move baby around based on activity, age, or comfort- and it’s so easy to use!

For full disclosure, I won my Ergo 360 from Maison Drake.  MD was hosting a pre-order special; for every customer that pre-ordered the Ergo 360, they were entered to win it for free.  I pre-ordered and was lucky enough to win my carrier for free.  I was in no way obligated to write a post about the Ergobaby 360 – but loved it so much that I wanted to share my experience.  Opinions are my own.
