Out with the old and in with the new.
As mentioned in an earlier post (Mum’s Shopping Spree), we recently purchased a ERGO Baby Organic Baby Carrier based on reviews online and from word of mouth. The BabyBjorn was initially great and I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. The thing is though, our friends lent it to us and having never used a baby carrier before, I honestly thought it was a great little invention.
As Jayden grew week on week though we noticed the strain that it was causing to our backs after some of the longer shopping and grocery runs. So we bit the bullet and decided to buy one for ourselves and as an avid online shopper, I did my research to narrow down the options and we went to try the ERGO Baby Carrier at Toys R Us and it seemed like a really great design. The weight distribution was more around the hips and shoulders and far less on the back (if any).
We settled on the navy blue ERGO Baby Organic Baby Carrier and have used it many times since buying it. I love the little sunshade that it comes with which doubles as a blocker to the outside world once bub is asleep. The little pockets are also great for little things like car keys if you find yourself without any space in your pockets I guess.
Not only is this baby carrier extra comfy for you, but bub looks super comfy too! I also love the fact that it can be worn in 3 ways as opposed to just 1. Yep, 3 ways! Bub in the front like a traditional baby carrier, bub on your back like a backpack and finally bub on the side like a sling.
And just to prove how comfy and great the ERGO Baby Carrier is, I decided to showcase how I can exercise (not that I ever use any exercising equipment) with Jayden in the carrier.
Armed with this baby carrier and our newly acquired super light-weight Combi Well Comfort Stroller (2nd hand off eBay), we’re going to take Hong Kong by storm next week when we travel there for a friend’s a wedding.
For those wondering, our main pram is the Bugaboo Cameleon which is great for around town in Sydney, but it’s a rather heavy pram and it’s a 2 piece set up, so it’s not the most ideal pram for travelling, especially if you’re going to be travelling to a country with a super high population density such as Hong Kong.
Please leave a comment if you have any questions about any of these products, I’d be happy to try and provide more detailed answers to specific questions based on my daddy experience 🙂
P.S. Should hopefully get my 10,000th hit soon too! *happy dance*
