When we added another child to our family, I wasn’t sure how I was going to be able to handle my everyday tasks, take care of my oldest daughter and take care of this new bundle of joy. Babywearing has been a sanity saver for myself as I transition from one kid to two kids. Honestly without it, I don’t think I would get anything done around my house, ever.
I have tried a few different baby carriers since having my youngest daughter and I have found better features at different stages for her. We started with a “Ring Sling”, while she was a newborn and then switched to an Original Ergobaby but forgot to purchase the insert to hold her in the Original Ergobaby at the newborn stages, so we ended up waiting until she was older to use it. I had hoped we would find a carrier that would hold her from the newborn stage into toddlerhood without the fuss and extra cost of purchasing a newborn insert, I also had hoped to find a carrier that was more comfortable for us, when holding the baby as she grows.
Ergobaby has listened to their customers and created an infant carrier that does all this and more. We were recently chosen to try out the new Ergobaby Omni 360 and I honestly, I was so excited because I do love my Original Ergobaby and was curious at what has changed to improve the carrier. My husband and I tested it out, since he will wear the baby on walks or when running errands, I was just as eager to see what he thought.
My Husband’s Review: “This baby carrier is more comfortable than the other carrier we have. It has lumbar support and padded shoulders, which is alot more comfortable for me and I think it is more comfortable for the baby as well. She seems to like looking out of the carrier, instead of always being against my chest. This is my favorite carrier and I really like how we can carry her more than one way.”
My review: “I love the dark blue on this carrier, it however won’t hide spit up like the tan carrier. I love the pocket option, to store my cell phone when I’m babywearing. I love the lumbar support, it is very helpful along with the padded shoulder straps. The baby can face out or in, which is great to have these options for her as she grows and gets more curious. I love how it can be used from the newborn stages up until she is a toddler. The carrier is the most versatile carrier on the market, with the ability to carry your child from birth to toddlerhood and in different positions.”
We have even had a few people show interest in the carrier, as we have walked around testing it out.
Searching for a baby carrier can be a daunting task, you have so many wants and few carriers offer everything on your list. I have listed a few key points about the Ergobaby Omni 360 Baby Carrier:
- Ergonomic, forward facing option (and easy to switch!)
- Adjustable from newborn to toddler (7 to 33 LBS)
- Lumbar support for extra back comfort
- Includes detachable storage pouch

We really love the Omni 360 Ergobaby carrier, compared to our Original Ergobaby, mostly for the fact it can be used from birth to toddler years, it is padded and offers more support than the Original carrier which provides great lumbar support for the adult carrying the infant. This should be a must on every parent’s registry, new parent or seasoned parent!
When you decide to babywear, you are providing comfort and love to your infant, in the simplest way possible. I think our bond is much closer with our little one, thanks to babywearing.
