Game changer September 29, 2017 13:36
The baby carrier dilemma... when our daughter was born, we invested in a classic structured baby carrier. We were lucky enough to also be gifted a wrap style carrier. In my mind we were set.
Turns out I was wrong. The wrap style didn't seem to ever leave her feeling comfortable and the structured carrier wasn't a great fit on my body (better for my husband), but also wasn't that usable when she was an infant. Despite these challenges, I never considered investing in another baby carrier. It seemed redundant and wasteful.
Enter my wonderful friend and mother of two. She insisted she wanted to give us a gift of an ergo baby carrier. I refused and explained my already plentiful stable of carriers. She persisted, and one day an ergo baby arrived in the mail.
From day 1 my life changed. My daughter was at peace in the carrier and that meant I was too. I could have her snuggled in, but also maintain the use of my arms. I could do things with two hands again. She almost always fell asleep instantly in it. It had a perfect infant insert and was super comfy on my body. I could go walking and have her be happy. It was AMAZING!!! This single piece of equipment was such a major game changer for us as new parents.
I am eternally grateful for my friends wisdom and persistence, and I want to pass this wisdom on to others. This said, I want you to find the right carrier for you. For me, it's ergo all the way.
