The Ergo

I absolutely love baby slings!! When Judah was born Mommy gave me an extra one of hers which I used often and still have for my future siblings and my future babies (if the Lord wills =) )… When Judah was a little older Mommy bought an Ergo Baby Carrier.
One thing that is special with the Ergo is that it has two shoulder straps so the weight of the baby lays on both shoulders… not just one! This is especially helpful for my Mother’s back. The Ergo Baby Carrier also has extra special features like a strapped hood which one can put over the baby when he sleeps. It’s also very easy to take off while the little one is sleeping and very easy to put on.
You can wear the Ergo in the front position, side, or back and it fits babies from newborn to about 40 pounds. It’s very comfortable and easy to move around in. In fact my little brother recently told me that when I get little he’s going to start giving me rides in it!! =) All in all I love the Ergo Baby Carrier!! =)

God Bless You and Happy Baby Wearing!

This article by Mrs. Allison, originally printed in the Above Rubies Magazine is one of my favorite articles I have ever read on Baby slings and Baby wearing! :)

Our family: said...

These are so great for bonding with adopted little ones! I so much wanted to get one for Maylie. I never made the investment though because I thought maybe she would be too old for it when we got her. But she totally would have fit in one! Even though she was four she weighed only 26 pounds when we were in China. But I did carry her A LOT. Still do! I love carrying that little girl around! The best part is she looks up at me with arms outstretched and says "Bao Bao! Bao Bao!" which means "hold me" in Chinese. It's pretty much the only Chinese words she says anymore. I'm so glad we video taped her speaking Cantonese before she forgot it all.

I can't wait to see who the little ones are that the Lord has chosen for your family!
