2007 was a fantastic year for ERGObaby! In May, the ERGObaby carrier was named one of Parenting Magazine’s “Top 20 Baby Products of the Last 20 Years”. This issue of Parenting Magazine unveiled the culmination of ten months of research and feedback from hundreds of parents across the country, and our inclusion on the list is truly an honor!

We were consequently featured on “The Today Show” in May as they highlighted some of these top 20 products, and on October 23, Elizabeth Hasselbeck of “The View” named the ERGObaby carrier as one of the “must haves” for new parents. The audience, which was comprised primarily of expecting parents, each received an ERGObaby carrier as a gift for being a part of Hasselbeck’s baby shower celebration.

In September, we attended the ABC Trade Show in Las Vegas, where we launched our new Organic line of babywearing products. These durable, high-quality carriers and accessories offer parents an eco-conscious alternative. Babies love the soft fabric! At the trade show, we also presented our Hawaiian print baby carrier, which features a vintage tropical Hawaiian print on a cream-colored background.

In 2008, we are celebrating our sixth year in operation, and are anticipating more exciting events. We are happy to announce that, after years of pending, we have received our US Patent (# 7,322,498). This coming June, ERGObaby owner and designer Karin Frost is sponsoring the keynote speaker at the 2nd Annual Babywearing Conference in Chicago. The conference will be held June 25 – 28 at the Lincoln Park campus of DePaul University, and will include music, yoga, lectures, and more! In September, we will return to the Industry’s largest Trade Show, the ABC Kid’s EXPO in Las Vegas.

As we continue to grow and evolve, we greatly appreciate all of the word-of-mouth support we receive from the babywearing community. Every day, we receive testimonials from parents praising the ERGObaby’s quality, safety, and style. We pride ourselves on providing exceptional customer service, fulfilling requests and answering questions in a timely, courteous, and professional manner. We look forward to continuing to provide outstanding baby carriers and accessories, enabling parents to incorporate their babies into their lifestyle in the most peaceful, loving, and natural way possible.
