Describe your Ergobaby life in three words

Comfort, Freedom, Togetherness

I got my first Ergobaby in 2009 when my baby was 2 months old. I was lucky to have been introduced to babywearing by my older sister who wore her babies in ring slings when they were little and I saw how important baby wearing was from the get go. When my daughter was 4 months old I went back to work full time so the first thing I would do when I came home was put on my Ergobaby and take her on an evening walk in our neighborhood. To me, this was the fastest way to connect to her after being gone all day. The guilt we have as mothers is real and I felt that truly this time we had on our walks was quality beyond measure. I sang to her and, as she grew day by day, pointed out things on our walks – a dog, a bird in a tree, the moon overhead. I think back on those fragile first days and know that the Ergobaby, beyond any other product, became a piece of our family history. My Ergobaby carrier has traveled the world and lived through two babies, been passed back and forth to friends and still is in amazing condition. I’m so excited for this program and how it honors our planet and forges a connection between families. Go Ergobaby!
