Karin Frost, owner and designer of ERGObaby Carrier, had her son in 2001 and created a carrier for him. With the help and feedback from other parents the ERGO was born.
The all-in-one soft baby carrier, assisting you through all the stages of your baby’s growth and moving from front to hip to back position easily. Its innovative design makes wearing your baby comfortable hours at a time, gives you the freedom to remain active and productive in your daily life, and holds your baby secure to your body so your hands are free.
The ERGObaby carrier’s ergonomic design supports a correct sitting position for the baby’s hip, pelvis and spine growth. It disperses most of the baby’s weight between the hips and thighs, which helps to eliminate compression of the spine when hanging by the crotch which most other designs require. The ERGO also balances the baby’s weight to parents’ hips and shoulders, and alleviates physical stress for the parent.
The ERGObaby Carrier costs 92,- USD and is available in 6 colours; camel lining, black with green lining, blue with green lining, blue with tartan lining, camel and cranberry.
The usage of the ERGO varies considerably according to each baby and each parent, especially in relation to the parent’s stature and physical condition. The strain on the back increases naturally with the growing weight of the child. It is therefore a good idea to start carrying the baby early because the parent can slowly become accustomed to the increasing demand on the body by the growing weight of the child. This results in a conditioning of the body that reduces the strain of carrying. Frost still carries her son who is now 4-1/2 years old
