    Why We Love the Ergobaby Omni: The Ergobaby Omni is super versatile – it does all the positions and can be used from birth without an infant insert. It achieves a truly ergonomic forward-facing carry for baby.  The straps can cross on back, which we find the most comfortable, and it has Ergobaby lumbar support waistband.  The Omni even has an included detachable pouch for extra storage (plus a small slot pocket on the waistband).  “Cool” options (with mesh panels for extra airflow) of this carrier are available if it’s very hot where you live.  Generously sized waistband goes to 58″

    Keep in Mind: In order to achieve the flexibility of positioning for baby, the body of the carrier is a bit thick and stiff, compared to other carriers on the market. Some people find the Ergobaby shoulder straps to be bulkier than those found on other carriers.  This is the most expensive Ergobaby models.
