After the ABC Kids Expo: Taking Ergo in a new direction

When we first encountered Ergobaby, back in 2004, Sheri described the company as “so small… I placed my first order with the founder’s dad.” Not anymore! Ergo is now a baby industry giant, and the luxuriously-sized and well-appointed booth that they shared with Orbit Baby at the ABC show was both a demonstration and a celebration of their success. Ergobaby ... Read More »

Drool Sponsor Spotlight: Mixing It Up With Ergo and Orbit

Ergo Baby Carrier in Galaxy

In the era of mashups, it’s no surprise that some of our favorite baby brands are combining forces to produce gear that’s twice as useful, twice as stylish, twice as nice! ERGObaby and Orbit Baby have joined forces in a partnership that we’re hoping will result in even cooler products. You’re probably already familiar with these brands, but here’s a ... Read More »

Your baby longs to be close to you… in a Moby Wrap!

Your baby, being rather new to the world, has a short list of priorities. She’d like to be fed regularly, and even sooner than “ASAP”. She’d like to stay warm and dry. And most of all, she longs to be close to you (or another big warm person). Snuggling up close to a heartbeat keeps her happy, calm, and dozy. ... Read More »

Giveaways Day 5 – Ergo Baby Carrier

I just returned from watching a fireworks display on Cape Cod. As we stretched out on the grass and watched the spectacular show, I noticed a man sitting a few yards in front of us, wearing a baby in an Ergo carrier. The explosions were loud, the music was boisterous and the crowd was enthusiastic. But his baby slept on, ... Read More »

Baby Bjorn debuts new Comfort Carrier

8 years ago my daughter was a newborn and the Baby Bjorn was the “It” baby carrier, a staple on just about every baby registry (mine included). I used it and I liked it, but I wished for more support, and in warm weather, both my daughter and I would sweat bullets. My feedback wasn’t unique, and over the past ... Read More »

Slings shot?

The CPSC is apparently preparing to issue a warning to parents regarding the use of slings with infants, according to numerous media sources. Inez Tenenbaum, head of the CPSC, addressed the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association yesterday and broke the news, saying “We know of too many deaths in these slings and we now know the hazard scenarios for very small ...

Hotslings AP = Always Perfect?

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you already know that I use my vacations to test-drive new products. This most recent trip, I got up close and personal with the new Hotslings AP. I’ve always loved Hotslings for travel because they fold up small enough to tuck into a diaper bag. The new AP version offers adjustability ... Read More »

Lillebaby Everywear Carrier: Help is here

Based on feedback about the instructions included with the Lillebaby Everywear Carrier, we created a video that should help clarify. This video addresses the most confusing part of the carrier – adjusting the “saddle” between the wide and narrow settings. As a reminder, the wide setting is good for older babies and toddlers who are facing inward or riding on ... Read More »
