The Ergobaby 360 has been a life saver. And the new Ergobaby Omni looks to be just as awesome. Most people will see the Ergobaby as a way to just carry around your baby, but in reality, it is a very important tool that allows you to stop a crying baby and actually get something done. Our babies both love the Ergobaby 360 baby carrier, thank god.

Why I love the Ergobaby
The Ergo baby is a super comfortable baby carrier. We have the infant insert, so it allowed us to carry around our babies from birth. Being able to carry around your baby is such a valuable thing. It allows you to get stuff done. We have 2 small boys, and it is so helpful to be able to carry the newborn while I look after the 1 year old. I can't tell you enough how much this has saved my sanity.
The Ergobaby is lightweight, and the new Omni looks to be even lighter than the one I have. You don't want to be carrying around a heavy baby carrier as well as a heavy baby.
The straps are all adjustable, and you can get a really good fit. The padding is great, and it holds your baby nice and close which makes it feel like its a part of you and you really don't even notice it's on sometimes.
As much as all the photos of baby carries look perfect, the reality is..... Your baby carrier at best is going to be vomited on often, at worst you will have a poo situation to deal with. Either way, it's good to know, the Ergobaby 360 can go straight in the machine.
Forward Facing / Rear Facing
You can easily switch from front facing to rear facing. Newborns face inwards and they really find it comforting, but as they get used to the world, they love the excitement of looking outward. Switch quite easily with the Ergobaby 360.

What I Didn't Like about the Ergobaby 360
There is not alot I didn't like about the Ergobaby. The kids loved it, which was the most important thing. The only thing I didn't like was making adjustments to it. I am not even sure if this is something they can overcome. It is hard to switch between children, and hard to switch between my wife and I. Once it was adjusted, it was perfect, just a pain to adjust.
The Ergobaby 360, and the new Omni 360 are awesome baby carriers and were really helpful in our family. The quality is awesome and I really can't recommend this product enough. I am giving the Ergobaby 360 a 5 out of 5.
