Comments: Wrap carriers have long had a disadvantage for a lot of moms: you can get it tight enough to support baby for awhile, but eventually it stretches out with use. Ergobaby, maker of the ErgoBaby 360° and Original, think they’ve solved the problem. They call their Wrap a “hybrid”: strong like a woven but with added stretch equally in all directions (4-D Fabric). They claim this will cause the wrap to rebound back to its original shape after every use. And you can remove and put your child back in the carrier multiple times without re-wrapping. The carrier provides a sleep hood and a storage pocket and the material is light weight to avoid overheating.
Baby can be worn in front, on the hip, or piggyback and folds into it’s own pocket. Parent feedback is mostly positive with most complaints centered around frustration at the steep learning curve with all the fabric. Interestingly, Ergobaby’s web site recommends switching to a soft structured carrier (preferably their own, no surprise) once baby hits six months of age, even if that’s before she hits the 31 lb. mark.
