With so many important decisions to make with baby on the way, let us break down the specifics of Ergobaby carriers, the most ergonomic baby carrier on the market!

Ergobaby carriers are designed for optimal comfort for both you and baby with padded shoulder straps, soft materials, and adjustable waistbands.

They strongly support the “M” hip position, keeping your child safe and stress free while being carried. All carriers come with a hood to support baby’s head while sleeping and offer protection from harsh sunlight and wind. Now that we have an overview, let’s look at the different collections and fits that Ergobaby has to offer!

Washing Your Ergobaby Carrier
One of the greatest bonuses of Ergobaby Carriers is that they are machine washable, although it is not advised to do so too often, as the dyes used are chemical-free and therefore may fade faster than other colors. To wash your Ergobaby carrier, simply secure all buckles and machine-wash cold with a mild detergent (no bleach, perfumes, chlorine, or brighteners.) Dry your carrier on the delicate setting and remove when seams are still wet.
