Bundle of Joy - FAQs

  1. Are the Baby Carriers and Infant Inserts machine washable?
    Yes, all of our Carriers and Infant Inserts (plus insert pillow) are machine washable.
  2. At what age can I carry my baby in the back carry position?
    Each parent and child is different but usually around 6 months your baby will be ready to be carried on the back and parents are comfortable not having their baby in direct line of sight. Baby must have strong head and neck control and be comfortably sitted consistently in the carrier in an ergonomic, frog-leg position with knees even to hips. People with larger babies who are more developed may choose to put their baby in the back carry position even earlier than 6 months especially for longer carry times since many parents find it more comfortable to wear heavy babies on their backs.
  3. What is the weight limit of the Ergobaby Carrier?
    Ergobaby recommends a weight limit of 45 pounds for its Original, Organic and Performance carriers. The Four Position 360 carrier has a recommended weight limit of 33 pounds.
  4. Why do I need the Easy Snug Infant Insert and how long do I need to use it?
    Our Easy Snug infant inserts are designed so that you can carry your newborn baby both ergonomically and comfortably in a soothing, nest-like comfort close to you, for a cozy transition to the world from the womb. The Ergobaby Easy Snug infant insert was designed for use with Ergobaby carriers (at the exception of Adapt carrier which does not require an infant insert) for babies from newborn up to age ~4 months (from 7-12 lbs), or for babies more than 12 lbs but younger than 4 months or without strong and consistent head and neck control. It is designed to provide head and neck support and to ensure your newborn is seated both comfortably and ergonomically while in the Ergobaby Carrier. The fan- shaped design securely attaches to Ergobaby's Original or All Positions 360 carriers, for an intuitive loading of baby and more airflow, while providing all the extra thigh, spine, head and neck support your baby needs in his early months. The bottom pillow in the Easy Snug infant insert can be removed from the insert and placed inside the carrier, with your baby sitting on top of it. The use of the pillow alone is for babies with strong and consistent head and neck control who are either too short to bend at the knees when seated in the Carrier or would like to be seated higher in the Carrier. For older babies who still need head and neck support, but can already be seated in the carrier, you can use the shell of the Easy Snug infant insert without the pillow to provide proper support.
  5. Which carry position can the Easy Snug infant insert be used in?
    The Easy Snug infant insert and pillow are only intended to be used in the front inward carry position.
  6. I have the older version of the infant insert, can I still use it?
    Yes, you can still use the older version of the infant insert. We continuously improve our products. The new Easy Snug infant insert delivers the same great comfort and ergonomics as our old infant insert while enabling more airflow and easier loading of baby. Easy Snug infant insert is cooler for baby with a new streamlined, fan-shape design. The firmer cushioned sides and head and neck support provide all the extra head, neck and thigh support your baby needs in his early months with less material around baby for more airflow. It is also easier and more intuitive to use, with fewer steps to load baby in carrier and no extra-piece to load baby as it securely attaches to the carrier.
