ERGO Baby Carrier = LOVE

ergomommycollageI can’t gloat enough about how much I love my ERGO Baby Carrier.  It’s the best carrier around.  It’s cute, comfortable, supportive, convenient, and easy to use.  It’s the best.  I love the large pocket on the front of the carrier for my stuff.  The shoulder straps are an inch thick, for comfort.  I never feel pressure on my shoulders from the straps. There is also a waist strap which helps with keeping the baby’s weight evenly within the shoulders and hips.  I love the ergonomics of it that keeps baby in her natural sitting position. It has 3 positions, front, side and back.  Although, this carrier is not designed for front facing, I still prefer it over all other carriers that are forward facing. Goes up to 45lbs, which will be great for Daddy to wear when baby isn’t so much a baby anymore.

I was shopping for a new baby carrier, I decided to get the Ergobaby. By doing so, I came across the Christy Turlington Burns Ergo Baby Carrier. Ergo Baby makes different style carriers, so you can more than likely find something that suits you. I have the Designer Collection Baby Carrier Christy Turlington Umba Print. It’s so cute, it’s my style.  This carrier was designed for a non-profit organization, that raises money for women around the world that don’t have the money or resources we have. Not only did I like the design created by an african artist but I found out about Every Mother Counts, supporting exactly what I always wondered what other women around the world went through with pregnancy difficulties. I find this to be very empowering and I support this.

“Ergo Baby teamed up with Christy Turnington to develop the Umba print design to help benefit her organization, Every Mother Counts. Everymother Counts is a campaign o end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world. They inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take action to improve the health and well-being of girls and women worldwide.”

print was by a local desginer of West Africa

the Umba carrier was the unique pattern.  The authentic African “Umba” pattern, created by Chantal, a local designer in West Africa, was chosen by Christy to merge the unique sensibilities of African textile design with a stylish, one-of-a-kind twist on products parents can use every day. Chantal provides for her family in Togo through textile design; her batik method involves a specially carved wood stamp, hot wax and a white piece of cotton, resulting in a wonderfully natural pattern with broad appeal.  With brown and orange accents, you can be sure of two things; you’ll get a lot of compliments on your baby carrier, and you’ll be supporting mothers and children around the world with your purchase.

This was sentimental for me seeing as I suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum through out my pregnancy.   I was 1% of the hardest pregnancies out all woman who have been pregnant. I spend 19 days in the hospital during the first trimester of my pregnancy. I had to leave my job after a month of being pregnant. I was so very limited in my physical activities, making it hard to function in daily activities. I had a picc line (IV) in my arm for 7 months of my pregnancy, having to inject medicine to help me from having constant nausea & have hydration plugged in every night while I slept. I had to drag an IV pole with me when I woke up 10 times a night to go to the bathroom. (For those of you that have been pregnant before, you know what I am talking about as far as peeing periodically.) It was the hardest thing I have ever faced.  Day after day I didn’t know how I was going to make it through, but I did. I did because of the resources I had. I might have died if I didn’t have the medical help that I had. If it had been years ago before medicine or had I been like other women in other parts of the world with lack of money or medical help, I might be dead. There would be no Mama Bliss, no Baby Bliss. We wouldn’t be here. Thinking about this makes me ever so grateful for what I have and I could not imagine it being any worse than what I went through. But it could be worse, way worse, for women around the world that don’t have that care that I had.



Please know that this review is based on my personal opinion, I was not paid nor given this carrier to write this review.  I purchased this carrier and fell in love it for many reasons.
