Hawaii is the land of “No Worries,” and the birthplace of the Ergobaby Original Carrier. Born out of a need to be able to stay mobile and yet still have her baby close to her, Karin Frost came up with the original carrier design. She tested her product with other parents and even watched how the kids reacted to the carrier.
She made sure that the carrier was adjustable to both the parent and the child. Frost chose a nautilus as her logo because to her it represents the flexibility, evolution and “instinctive response” you need as you go through your everyday life. The company continues to grow but the passion and commitment remain the same.
Ergobaby Original Bundle of Joy Carrier
Ergobaby is the recipient of numerous awards for their stellar design. In 2011, Ergobaby carriers were named one of the Top 10 baby carriers in Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine. There’s no doubt that parents love the ergonomic design that distributes the baby’s weight evenly making it comfortable for them as well as the child.
The child is able to be transported while in a seated position with the padded waistbelt adjusting the baby’s weight between the shoulders to hip area. The shoulder straps are nicely padded to make sure that they don’t dig into you. The carrier is made of 100% cotton canvas with the lining made of 100% cotton poplin. The carrier itself is less than two pounds so you’re not going to feel weighted down. You can keep your little one close to you directly in the front, on your hip or even on your back.
