Throughout the natural world, mamas are carrying their babies everywhere: not just kangaroos, but also birds and bats, otters and sloths, and of course, primates from the teeniest lemur to the mighty gorilla. Of course, humans caught on to the natural wisdom of keeping their babies close a long time ago, and cultures all over the world have developed their own unique babywearing styles.
For your own all-natural baby-carrying needs, you can’t go wrong with the Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier, which boasts all the benefits of the Original Ergobaby Carrier, plus 100% organic cotton! As with other Ergo carriers, the Ergobaby Organic Carrier positions your baby for ergonomic comfort and proper hip, pelvis, and spine growth, and places her weight on your hips and shoulders, so you can snuggle your sleepy babe all day long without hurting your back.
Some features of the Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier include:
And finally: it seems obvious that a baby who spends all day snuggled against Mom’s heartbeat in an Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier would be happier, but the science also backs it up. Studies show that babywearing results in babies that cry less. It makes perfect sense: it’s only natural, right?
Spilling the Beans: The Ergobaby Carrier is very straightforward to use in the front position. Using it on the side takes some adjustment to the straps, but once you learn how your Ergo Baby works, it's a cinch. Wearing a baby on your back, however, will take some practice. We recommend you start out sitting down on the edge of a nice, soft bed or with a "spotter" nearby until you get the hang of it. Take your time and be patient - soon enough you'll be an Ergobaby pro!
Suggested washing instructions from company:
Use mild detergent on a gentle cycle in the washer and dry until seams are slightly damp. Spot wash when needed and do not wash frequently. Frequent washing and harsh detergents can cause 100% cotton to break down faster.

Warm in summer
I bought this carrier over the summer to travel with my baby girl. It is lovely and soft and I am happy that I went with the organic material. I flew to London on my own and this carrier was perfect. It did get a bit warm for my daughter - I would recommend not putting much clothing on your baby! I understand that Ergo makes a sport carrier that may be a bit lighter in the summer months. I have three other carriers at home and this is my favorite. One of the other carriers is the Moby which I also love, but you can't beat the Ergo for ease/ability to get your baby in it quickly. I wanted something that didn't hurt my back and I can honestly say, it didn't. I also like that you can use it as a side and back carrier.

My children love to be held and I was having a hard time finding a carrier that was easy and fast to use and wouldn't hurt my back. I decided after hearing many reviews of the Ergo to buy it and I'm in love! I've taken walks, cleaned the house, etc while carrying my babyand NO back pain! My baby is so happy in there and my husband even carried my two year old and was comfortable. The top buckle (while wearing the baby in a front hold) can be a little hard to get to at first but with little practice I'm able to do it easily :)

Love my Ergo! This seemed like a lot to spend on a "baby" product for my 9 month old, but I'm so glad I did. When I bought this my twins were 2 1/2 and still rode in the stroller, and my third was 9mo. We do a lot of walking, and pushing the stroller with a 9mo old in the Bjorn was starting to get hard on my shoulders and upper back. So, I bought the Ergo and put the baby on my back and we both LOVE it! We can walk all day. The padded straps are comfortable. Sometimes the buckle digs in to my hip bone, but adjusting it or tucking in my shirt does the trick. She sleeps in it sometimes - getting the sleeping hood up is a little hard so she usually just rests her head on my back. It's been a year now, and I still use it all the time. It even saved the day for my 3 1/2 yr old after a long day at the zoo (now that is heavy... but it's easier than a piggyback ride!). Overall, really happy with the Ergo.
