How many of your children did you wear in your carrier?


What was baby's favorite activity in the carrier?

Exploring the world together

Describe your Ergobaby life in three words

Serenity. Security. Freedom.

I knew nothing about babies before I had mine two years ago. I had no idea what gear or stuff or how much of any of it I needed. The one thing I knew I wanted was an Ergo carrier. I always saw happy babies cruising through town and on trails and I thought, “that’s the type of mom I want to be.” Usually expectations like this are a total bust, but getting to explore the world with my baby in our Ergo was not. Dean and I have spent countless hours on trails, at the beach, nursing during trips to Whole Foods and snuggling when my arms were ready to give out from holding him. We loved it so much that we didn’t own a stroller until he was nine months old! I am so happy that this one dream came true and I hope it does for the next babe too! The photo is us at 10 days old on our first hike.
