The Ergobaby story
Spring Campaign 2015 Ergobaby Everyday

The Ergobaby Carrier was created in 2003 by Karin Frost in Maui, Hawaii. Karin was looking for an ergonomic, skin-to-skin yet practical and comfortable baby carrier to carry her infant son but did not find anything that was matching her criterion. Being a fashion designer, she had the idea to create one and made the first 50 herself. That is how the Ergobaby carrier was born.

The Ergobaby Carrier was the first soft-structured ergonomic carrier with a padded waistbelt introduced on the market 10 years ago and since then, while the demand for ergonomic carriers has been growing, Ergobaby has kept researching and innovating to improve the product and innovate thanks to new materials and concepts. It now has a range of more than 30 carriers in 6 different collections as well as plenty of original carrying accessories, in order to have a carrier that will fit every parent and baby.

The features of the Ergobaby Original Carrier now seem pretty classic but were very innovative at the time. Innovation is back again with the 360 Ergobaby carrier that gives you the chance to wear your baby in 4 positions instead of 3, including for the first time ever a forward facing ergonomic position. In fact, Ergobaby won the Innovation Award for this baby carrier.



The carrier is super comfortable for the parents as it features padded shoulder straps and a padded waist belt that evenly distribute your baby‘s weight between your shoulders and hips. In other words, you can carry your little one for a longer time without neck or back pain!

All Ergobaby carriers go in the washing machine so they can be cleaned easily and can be used with newborns along with the Infant Insert.
