Baby wearing is a popular activity among new moms, toddler moms, active moms, on-the-go moms…basically any mom! Not all carriers are created equally though. The brand new Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier is everything you’ll ever need or want in a carrier!
**I received the Ergobaby Omni 360 free from the company in exchange for a review, but all opinions are mine.**
My son was born 5 years ago, so 5 years and a few months ago, I was like any new expectant mom and scouring the internet for information on the best/easiest/safest carrier for my soon-to-be newborn. I did my research and came upon the Ergobaby Company. At that time, the original Ergobaby carrier was all that was available from Ergobaby. Boy was I so glad I came upon the Ergobaby company at that time!
Fast forward another 3 years, and my daughter was born. I was so excited because Ergo had come out with the Ergobaby 360 carrier that allowed my daughter to safely be carried facing outwards.
Both the carriers I had from Ergobaby have been amazing and I love the Ergobaby company. But now, Ergobaby has come out with, in my opinion, the best, most versatile, safest, and easiest carrier you can get on the market!
Let me draw you a list of why I have such a strong opinion of this baby carrier, and why this is a must have purchase for your little one!
1. First off, Ergobaby keeps baby safety in mind with any product they offer!
The Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier allows you to always see the infant to ensure open airways.
Also, Ergobaby’s carriers ensure proper M-shape hip positions in the carrier to encourage hip healthy seating for baby.
2. You can carry your child in 4 different positions!
Carry your child:
- Inward with the carrier in front
- Outward with the carrier in front
- On the hip
- On your back
3. It focuses on comfort for the person carrying and the infant.
The carrier features a lumbar support and extra-cushioned crossable shoulder straps.
4. The straps are adjustable.
The straps can be adjusted to ensure proper fit for all sized people. With any extra length in the straps, you can fold it away to tuck them in.
5. It’s very easy to adjust on the go!
Change the seating position with a quick change of a couple of buttons! Adjust the velcro seat tabs as your baby grows to ensure the carrier fits the baby’s height appropriately.
Easily button and unbutton the head and neck support depending on the baby’s position and activity level.
It’s nice to have this feature because while on-the-go, many times, it would interfere with nap time. We could easily switch our daughter from outward facing to inward facing within a matter of seconds so she could sleep easily.
6. Easily breastfeed while baby is in the carrier
If you so choose, breastfeeding can be done while baby is in the carrier without needing to take baby out.
7. You don’t need the infant insert!
With the other Ergobaby carriers, you needed to purchase a separate infant insert for your newborn.
The Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier can safely carry a newborn at a minimum of 7 lbs and 20 inches long.
8. Babies love to sleep close to a parent
Our son had to be held in our arms for the longest time to fall asleep for his naps. That made it a problem to get anything done.
With a carrier, your baby can cuddle up close to you and fall right asleep! You’ll be amazed at how quickly they fall asleep in this carrier and you can actually continue to get things done since you’d have 2 free hands!
9. It keeps wiggling toddlers who just want to explore close to you when you are out and about.
You know that stage where your new toddler has learned how to walk and wants to go everywhere, but has no sense of danger? Keep this carrier in your car for trips out where you don’t want to have a stroller. It’s compact, your toddler can still look around in the outward facing position, and you can have peace of mind that you don’t need to be chasing around a toddler or trying to hold the thrashing little body trying to escape from your arms as you’re trying to walk down the street or crowded mall!
10. The Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier has extra convenience features.
At Ergobaby, they really thought of everything! They surveyed their customers and LISTENED to exactly what would make their new carrier better!
The hood that used to just lay out in front when not snapped to cover up baby, now has a convenient little pocket it fits nicely into and is covered up by the head and neck support.
Also, it has a zippered, removable pocket in the front center along the belt where you can keep little items like your cash/cards/ID/chap stick instead of awkwardly carrying a purse while wearing the carrier! This little feature is a big win in my book!
If you splurge on one baby item, the Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier is the item to splurge on. It’s worth the price and when your child(ren) outgrow the carrier, it’ll sell quickly and for at least half the price you paid for it! You will be glad you purchased the Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier!
