Easy in/out as well as the baby being comfortable.
BriHan
Very even distribution of weight doesn't strain the back it distributes the weight everywhere.

It's comfortable and allows my baby to look out and around while still being hands free.

I(mom) own the ERGO and the Baby Bjorn Active and a sling, and have used a Snugli. The ERGO is by far the best baby carrier out there. All of the others hurt my shoulders/neck after 15-30 minutes. The ERGO is comfortable, and distributes most of the weight to my hips/legs. I've been on many hikes (20+) with Kai(baby) in the ERGO, the longest being 7 miles (almost 4 hours), with no problems. Our first hike was when he was 3 weeks, and we are still hiking with the ERGO at 7 months. He loves it, and falls asleep in it every time we go hiking. The only problem is that you can't have the baby face out. For the first 3 months, that didn't matter- Kai was perfectly happy to face me and snuggle in- I used the head cover for shade and he slept happily... At 4 months, he wanted to see what was going on, but he couldn't hold up his head well enough to sit in the ERGO 'backpack' fashion, so I bought the Baby Bjorn Active. Kai liked it, Lars(dad) liked it, I tolerated it for up to 45 minutes, but just couldn't bear any hike longer than that. Also, Kai's legs hang down in front so that they hit your legs when you walk uphill- irritating to Lars. Kai also can't really sleep in the Baby Bjorn. (I'm sure he would have when he was little and facing inward, but with him facing outward, there isn't a comfortable sleep position for his head.) We use the Baby Bjorn for short trips, like in stores and around the house, and its great for that, but we started using the ERGO as a backpack for long hikes again when Kai turned 6 months. He loves looking around, and when he falls asleep, I just put the head cover on to help hold his head next to me. I haven't figured out how to get him in the ERGO backpack fashion by myself yet, so I have to get help for that.Read more ›

Over the course of three children we have had FIVE carriers: Two slings, a Baby Bjorn, a Snugli and the Ergo Baby.

The Bjorn is definitely the best looking and easiest to use. The clips and connectors are very intuitive and it's easy to get smaller infants into it.

My big complaint is that when the kids get larger (or if you wear it for more than 20 minutes at a time) it really starts to kill your back. This is because the design keeps all the weight on your shoulders. It's like wearing a backpack BACKWARDS!

The "Active" version has wider straps which provide additional support for a small improvement over the "Original," but it still puts all the weight on your shoulders, pulling them forward.

If you only plan to use this when grocery shopping and think you'll give it up when they're 6 months old, this might be for you. If you think you might want to go to the park and hang out, or use it even when the kid starts to crawl, then the Ergo Baby is probably more your speed.

p.s. this is coming from a guy who is 6', 180# and fit. My wife is smaller and far more critical of the ergonomics of this carrier.

This baby carrier is made of good quality. It is easy to put on and take off, and allows you to adjust it according to your build. But it digs into your shoulder muscles when you carry a baby around after 15 minutes. I can last much longer with the Moby Wrap and the Ergo Baby.

If you're going for this one, there are infantino and jeep model carriers that costs 1/3 of the price and work just the same. If you have some money to invest in a carrier I'd go with the Ergo or Beco Baby.

If you'd like a list of the top baby carriers and how carriers differ, visit the website AllMomsArePerfect.com and look under baby gear essentials. You'll find a baby carrier guide, stroller shopping and crib buying guide, and what to expect during delivery, recovery, and how to get sleep after baby comes along.

My husband LOVED this carrier with my daughter and used it quite a bit. She liked this a lot more than the wrap, but she loved facing outwards. After doing a bit more "research" I learned that this carrier isn't the healtiest for their leg and hip development as it's a "crotch dangler." That scared me quite a bit - although she's developed just fine now at age 2. I also thought this quite pretyt big and bulky on me - 5'3" and about 125 pre-pregnant.

For my newborn son, I talked my husband into buying an ERGO which doesn't harm their legs/hips like this could potentially do. The downfall is that the ERGO only allows them to face inwards. We also really like the Moby wrap.

Overall, if you're not concerned about the risks of their legs/hips than this is a great, sturdy, quality product, but the risks scared me too much.

We should have picked this up initially. However, we bought the basic model second hand from Monkey's Uncle in Capitol Hill (GREAT STORE!!!). If your child prefers facing out when being carried, this is a MUST. 30-45 minutes of carry time allows me LOTS of freedom to get things done and lost 8-10 pounds in about 2 weeks...

Bought this carrier for my 6mo. Easy to use. I took my son to a shopping mall during spring time and he was wearing a cotton sleep&play. I found he had sweat around his belly after ~30 min in the carrier. It will be too hot for the baby during summer time.
