After my last post about the ever colicy #2, it was recommended that I try out the Ergo Baby Carrier. And, then I remembered that a good friend from church had one. Through them, I found the site, aptly named My Favorite Baby Carrier.
First of all….the customer service was amazing. Within a couple minutes of emailing them a question, I was sent a response asking me how old #2 was and telling me that I would also need the infant insert. Then, I was called and told my carrier was on the way and asked if I had any questions. Shawn offered suggestions for how to put #2 in the carrier and how to get her adjusted to it once she could hold her head up. The customer service was immediate and amazing. (And, if you are not satisfied with the carrier, which trust me, you will be, they have a 90 day, money back guarantee.)
And, two days later, it arrived.
Just in the nick of time. Because #2 was having a fit.
So, I took The Ergo Carrier out of the box, and immediately put it on. It was so easy to use and buckle. It came with a DVD instruction manual, but honestly because I did my research, I didn’t even need to watch it.
Right when I put her in, you can still see that she was a tiny bit upset.
And, literally seconds later, she was out and the screaming and crying and thrashing had stopped. And, then I could cook dinner, or read to #1 or do any of the other chores I had around the house.
Do I look like one happy and relieved momma, or what? And, comfortable, too.
The next morning I tried it out with #1 on my back, because it says the weight limit is 65 pounds. #1 loved it. Now, every time she sees it, she wants to ride in the carrier. She says “#1 has to ride on mommy’s back!” And while she is closer to 30 pounds, she really felt light as a feather on my back
And, since a mom never has enough hands, you can see the versatility of being able to hold both kids (yes, my hands are quite full these days).
You can see how cozy #2 is in the carrier (and that she is not crying). I took this picture while wearing her.
While Aunt Emily was here, she gave it a try, too. She wore #2 while cooking us dinner. (Have we mentioned how much Aunt Emily rocks?)
And, she ate wearing #2, too. And, while the Ergo Carrier does have a cover or a hood for the baby to be protected from the sun and other elements (we joked that this would double as a bib, too), Aunt Emily thought it would be better to wear a dish cloth as a bib.
We all got to enjoy a nice meal without any interruptions.
And another really cool thing is that you can completely unhook it with the baby still in it and lay her down. This is an added bonus for sure.
Oh, and another thing…it has a nifty little pocket in front that holds like 3 diapers and some wipes, so when I’m out and about, I don’t have to lug a diaper bag around with me, too! It even fit #1’s size 4 diapers, too.
So, if you can’t tell, I am in love with my Ergo Baby Carrier!
After all of the questions about where I bought the baby bathtub I loved so much, I thought I would put a lot of links so you could go and check out the Ergo Baby Carrier for yourself!!!
