[ 0 ] 02/07/2017 |

Did you decide to go for an Ergobaby Original, Organic or Performance carrier from our vast selection on ? Awesome! You will benefit from free delivery or free product demonstration. It is important though that you get to use it properly. So please, please, please, read through! Any questions, please add them in the comments field.

First as a baby wearer myself, having worn two babies #inmyergo, and then as a seller, here is my short ‘How to use my Ergo Original, Organic and Performance’ guide which I believe you will find useful. The Ergobaby Performance Charcoal Black was my very first -and most used- carrier whereas the Organic Navy Blue (same carrier as the Original model but with 100% organic cotton fabric and Orlando Bloom’s favourite 😉 ) was my second, and has been a great companion in faraway places with extreme heat like Thailand.

Tips and info, many not included in the manual:

  1. Putting the carrier on for the first time As an extra tip, when you first try on the carrier at home, I would suggest to do so with a doll. In this way you can practice while watching the videos and adjust the carrier to your body as much as possible without upsetting your little one during the process. I’ve also noticed that small babies are soothed by the movement, so consider (ie when the baby is fed, changed and ready for a nap) placing your baby in the carrier, walk a few steps in the house (instead of sitting down), and chances are he/she will be sound asleep in just a few minutes. 

    Please note that the strap behind your neck is adjustable and can be moved upwards and downwards. It is usually most comfortable when placed at the height of your shoulder blades. For those with a longer torso Ergobaby suggests wearing the waistband up higher than you might ordinarily, around the belly button level. If you have a short torso, try wearing the waist belt around your hips.

4. Washing

When it comes to washing, no more than 30 degrees, gentle program, ideally with all buckles in place and the carrier in a pillow case. Do not tumble dry and do not put it under the sun to dry. Always wash without fabric conditioner and using a gentle non bio detergent.
