Differences between the types of Ergobaby Carriers

Choose the Ergo Baby Carrier if:

The Original / Organic Ergo Baby Carrier is the classic Ergobaby Carrier model. They are made of soft cotton and feature a pocket, an attached sleeping hood and cushy padded shoulder straps.

The Performance Ergo Baby Carrier has a sportier look and a bit more streamlined, having thinner contoured shoulder straps. Its moisture-wicking fabric makes it ideal for hotter climates and for people who run warm.

The Designer Ergo Baby Carrier features the classic fit of the original, but is made from designer fabrics. Some of the designer carriers have extra special add-ons, like the fur lining on the Winter Ergo Baby Carrier.

The Sport Ergo Baby Carrier is very light-weight and is designed for taller and larger people. The Sport Carrier has a vent in the carrier body for coolness and does not have a pocket. The hood is detachable.

The Travel Collection features the Stowaway Carrier, which is super light and compact, and fits into its own pouch for easy storage, and the Urban Travel Carrier, whose sleek looks make it a great choice for day or night!

  • The short body isn't as supportive for kids who are 'leaners.'
  • Some wearers find the padding in straps and body overly bulky.
  • Hip carry is less comfortable.
  • No forward facing carry.
