ErgoBaby Original Baby Carrier – REVIEW & HOW TO Use with Newborn (without infant insert)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


This is a review of the “Ergobaby Original Baby Carrier”. In this video I go over the basic features and design. I also show you how to use this carrier without purchasing the Infant insert. I found that the insert had terrible reviews and that babies weren’t liking it because it was hot. So I created my own safe way to use the carrier with infants and saving the money on the insert. Enjoy! Please leave any questions in the comments section. Thanks!

That's just great!! By thw way, what to do with baby who is still unable to support his own head?

Very helpful, thank you. The instructions that came with looked like an IKEA assembly booklet. Your video did the trick.

Hi there,

our son is 6 weeks old and 12 pounds. i love the idea of rolling up the blanket for him to sit on. We really didn't like the infant insert at all. do you know how we can wear this to support his head as he can't hold it up yet?

Love your video!

Great review! I just bought an Ergo. Thanks for the tip on rolling the swaddle blanket up. I wasn't wanting to have to buy the infant insert and use it for such a short amount of time.

It doesn't hurt your back? I have the infantino and it hurts my back after a while..

Thanks for the Review! Very Helpfull

Jackie Landrau says:

Thanks for this. My little lady is to big for the infant insert. Her butt sticks out and I don't like it.

Ofelia Andrade says:

I also have a boba wrap and ergo carrier that I used with my first son but i never got the hang of breastfeeding in either one. My second is almost 2 mo old and weights just over 13 lbs. How do you manage?? I've tried loosening the straps to lower baby but I'm still not able to get baby to latch on. Any tips?

This was so helpful! I just bought a ergo from a friend. My son is 3 months and 16 pounds so too big for the insert. But too small to sit with nothing. I can't wait to try this with him!

Aieen Salcedo says:

Do you have a demo for this type of carrier on how to breastfeed? I just bought one and for some reason, im having a hard time breastfeeding my LO. He's also 2 and 1/2 month old and i feel like he's still tiny to have his legs super wide open

Jennifer Fisco says:

Thx for the info. I have the exact same one and have been struggling a bit. My son is 4 months and 13.8lbs. I wasn't sure how to position his legs, but now I do. Super helpful

I love my ergo and I love wearing my baby but the newborn insert is too hot. This video helped so much. Thanks!! 

Kelsey Weber says:

Thank you for the tip on how to use this with a newborn. My only concern would be neck support. I am currently pregnant so I'm not sure what size baby I will have and just curious what you did for neck support?!

Ilikeit Raw says:

hey thanks for the tip and also I wanted to tell you that it is incredible that you had three kids, you're so fit :)
ps: how do you breastfeed in the ergo ? 
thanks and have a nice day

Just Live It says:

Thank you SO much for this video!!  :)  My baby will be 3 months old in two days, but he already weighs 17 pounds!  So there's no way he'd be comfortable in the infant insert!!!  I bought the Ergo yesterday and wasn't sure what to do…  Then I found your video, and I am confident that I can make my Ergo work.  I can't wait to try it out this afternoon!!!!
