product review | ERGO
i never thought i would be a "baby wearing" mom honestly. once becoming pregnant, i started following some instagram accounts, featuring nursing moms [since i was one] and a lot of them would nurse while their baby was in a wrap/babycarrier. still, i wasn't too into the look.
when my daughter wanted to be held for 3 days straight, i went to the store and bought a K'TAN baby wrap. having done no research prior to this purchase, i came home, and realized that i bought a wrap that was sized, and of course, i bought the wrong size.
i still used it [which i don't recommend] but i knew i wasn't being safe. so i returned it, and bought the MOBY. i had heard great things about this. the only negative was that there was so much fabric, since it was a "one size fits all". well, I'm 110lbs. so the amount of extra fabric was ridiculous. it was always dragging on the floor when i would put it on. i wound up putting it on at home, so it didn't touch the ground outside. not the worst thing, but definitely not the best.
it was pretty simple to put on, but i hated that it was a thick material, so i would sweat, which would make my daughter sweat. she never slept in it either. i liked it, maybe giving it a 7/10 rating. i kept it for about a month.
during that month, i got together with my girlfriend a few times, who had recently had her daughter. she had gotten the ERGO at her baby shower. i watched her put it on and take it off with no problems. a lot quicker than me getting my daughter in and out of the MOBY. her daughter was sleeping in it too.
the only thing that was stopping me from returning yet another baby wrap, was the price of the ERGO .. $160 and up. i slept on it for a few days, even searching those mommy for sale pages online to see if anyone was selling a pre-loved one. everyone who had one, raved over it. okay, okay. finally, i decided to return the MOBY, and use the money for the ERGO. what's the worst that could happen?
i loved it
seriously. this thing is amazing. it's super easy to put on and take off .. and getting the baby in and out is a breeze. its light weight, has padding around the baby's thigh areas, and comes in adorable colors and patterns. they also are made with different types of material, depending on how you plan to use your ERGO. they are structured multi-carriers too .. so you can wear your baby in different positions.
the best part? my daughter would sleep so soundly in this thing. it was amazing! i even raked my whole front yard with my daughter in the ERGO .. and she slept the whole time. SCORE!
