Ergo Organic Baby Carrier Review and Giveaway {closed}




Congratulations to Andrea, comment #69!



When I was pregnant with Dexter I didn't give much thought to "baby-wearing".  I knew that there were carriers out there but I didn't realize that there were so many options.  I also didn't know that there were fanatics out there that branded themselves as "baby wearers".  I received a Baby Bjorn from my Sister-in-law and I used it thinking that this was as good as it got.  .........then I got an Ergo Baby Carrier.


What I love about my Ergo Carrier is the fact that it is organic!  Yep, thats right, it is made from organic cotton.  It has a lot of wonderful features too!

Organic Baby Carrier Features
  • Ergonomic design
  • 100% organic cotton twill with 100% organic cotton sateen lining and hood
  • 100% cotton batting in body of carrier to soften edges
  • One inch, high density foam in shoulder straps
  • Quarter inch high density neoprene foam in waist belt
  • High Quality buckles tested by SGS
  • Waist belt circumference from 25" to 43"
  • Fits from 5' to 6.5' body height with adjustable shoulder and chest straps
  • Sleeping hood with elastic, adjusts in length for growth of baby
  • High quality webbing, matched to carrier color
  • Reinforced stitching used at all fabric intersections
  • Interior rip-stop reinforcements at critical intersections
  • Durability/strength tested up to 90 pounds
  • Machine washable - cold, gentle cycles, mild detergent, no bleach. Dry in low heat 



I was sent the Organic Twill Cranberry Carrier for review.  What I really like about this carrier, aside from the fact that it is organic, is the fact that it can support up to 90 lbs!  That means I can wear Dexter around in it!  Actually, my hubby can since I am pregnant and my back always hurts.  Ergo also makes really nice infant supports to allow one to carry their newborn around too!  It took me quite a while to get the hang of wearing this carrier (sans baby or toddler) but one I did, it was really nice.  I also love that there is a pocket in the front that allows you to carry miscellaneous items around with you.  If you are in the park with your toddler and happen to have a baby sleeping in your Ergo, you can put your keys in the carrier and lock.your.car!  Genius!


How eco-conscious is Ergo? 
ERGObaby believes that organic cotton is good for you and good for nature. Our new 100% Organic cotton Carriers (including the linings, Infant Support Cushions and Accessories) are certified by Control Union Certification (formerly SKAL International). The inspection is conducted annually from the farms to the processing plant. The dyes are certified by Oeko-Tex Standard 100 to meet European standards, and by SGS to meet all U.S. Federal, State and Local Regulations, as well as being compliant with the European Standard EN 71 Part 3:1994 +A1:2000


Our Certified 100% Organic cotton is grown, processed and manufactured in compliance with Organic Fiber Processing Standards, utilizing natural agricultural methodology without the application of toxic chemicals. The emphasis is to avoid negative impact on surrounding eco-systems. Many minds and hands around the world contributed to the manufacture of the ERGObaby Organic product,... all in the spirit of preserving our planet and advancing fair labor practices.
