What weabout it
A perennial favorite, the Original Ergobaby is comfortable and easy to use.


If you want to wear your baby, the Ergobaby Original is a rock-solid carrier with a reasonable price tag, beloved by many parents. This is the original design with some added lumbar support. It’s comfy for both you and your baby for everyday use, and it’s easy to use and adjust, even for multiple users.

The soft structured seat creates a wide M-shaped, hip-healthy position for all stages, from newborns (with the purchase of an infant insert) to young toddlers. You can choose from three ergonomic babywearing positions: front, hip and back carry; your baby is right up next to you in all three, for closeness, comfort and bonding. You can also use the carrier for your newborn with the infant insert (sold separately).

The wide, padded waistband has a buckle closure that easily adjusts in size to fit many caregivers. And the design evenly distributes your baby’s weight across your shoulders, back and hips—making this carrier comfortable to wear even for long periods of time.

A sleeping hood rolls out of the top, zippered pocket of the back panel. It’s convenient for protecting your little one’s head from sun or rain, or for privacy when sleeping or nursing. There’s also a roomy zipper pocket to hold your essentials, keeping your hands free.

Keep in mind that you’ll need to reach over your shoulders and behind your back to secure the chest clip, which some parents find difficult. Also note that this carrier does not offer a facing-out front carry—you’ll want to look at the Ergo 360 for that feature.

I didn't realize that you aren't able to face your baby outwards with this carrier. You can with the Ergobaby 360 but not with this model. Once baby is strong enough to hold his head, s/he wants to look out!

I got this one because it’s organic but I wish I had bought the 360 instead. I ended up buying another carrier so that my baby could face forward when she was old enough. She loves facing forward and you can’t do it in this one.

Sturdy but wish it could do front-facing. This is great for longer walks or hikes. Can be challenging to get baby in or out without assistance.

It hurts my back, but I hear it works great for some people! We're still looking for the best solution for us, but the baby Bjorne classic has a crossing back that provides support I need.

My daughter is eight months and I use it on a regular basis. Other carriers caused back and shoulder pain, but with the Ergobaby I am completely comfortable. I use it for walks, hikes, shopping, and even around the house. It's awesome!

This is MY carrier. It's so easy to adjust and clean and even as baby is getting heavier I have no pain or discomfort in my shoulders or at my hips like I did with the Boba.

Light, doesn't hurt your back, easy to put the baby into.

We use our Ergo every day. My son loves to be outside, but I also use it around the house to get things done when he wants to be held. It's a must-have! I especially love the pockets (better than Tula pockets).
