I too had used an actual ERGO daily for over a year before giving it back to the friend I borrowed it from. I really do love Ergos. I have not used a carrier on my guy for over a year, but found myself wanting one just in case of an emergency, he is a heavy just turned 3 year old now, he is around 30lbs and if for some reason I have to leave in an emergency I will want a way to carry him because he is still too slow to keep up with the rest of us but I still have hands free to hold onto my 5 and 7 year olds. We used an ergo from when my youngest was 9mo to when he turned 2 years before giving it back to my friend. My youngest is adopted from Korea where he was very much a carried baby and the ERGO was perfect for his transition. He went to sleep in it. Every naptime and every bedtime for at least 4 months. But now just looking for a carrier for emergencies.
I was not about to buy an ERGO for a maybe just in case emergency but luckily found the Infantino Ergonomic Union Carrier today at a thrift store for $3. Yes for $3 I thought I could give it a go.
This is how I found it differnt than the actual ERGO brand. Size wise about the same. The outside fabric is not near as soft, this is more like backpack material, where the ergo was a softer fabric. Structure wise it is about the same. Waist strap and such felt really familar when I put it on. I back carry exclusivly, and I was used to putting him into the ERGO solo, they reccomend for this one to not even attempt this on your own on the video for the Infantino. My son is used to being hoisted back there so we tried it out in the store. I can see how this would be about impossible for your average carrier user or beginner but I was able to do it. The part that makes it harder is that the straps on the Infantino connect to the waist strap.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I had my sister, who typically uses a BabyBjorn carrier, give this Infantino a try. Her thoughts were:

- The Infantino is about half the price of a BabyBjorn and just as effective

- Instead of carrying the baby in the front facing you or facing out, the Infantino gives you a choice of carrying the baby in the front (facing you) or on your back, essentially facing your neck. The position is really a thing of personal preference.

- The Infantino is perfect for infants and kids up to 40 lbs, while the Original BabyBjorn is only good for up to 22lbs. So not only is the Infantino much cheaper, but you can also use it for much longer.

- The Infantino seemed to provide much more back and shoulder support than the BabyBjorn or other carrier she's tried

- The one difficult feature of the Infantino was that it if you choose to carry your child in the front, you have to snap the carrier close in the back. It's nearly impossible to get it on this way without the help of another person.

Mrs. Bensley review:

I specifically bought this carrier earlier this year for my second little girl (she is now about to be 18 months old) to wear on my back. I have used ring slings, wraps, and Baby Bjorns for front carrying but they are bulky and time-consuming. I am a plus-sized person so using pre-sized carriers are not really an option. I wanted an easy back carrier that I could use when I was the only adult around.

At first, I was disappointed in two things: (1) the instructions said users had to have help putting the carrier on and (2) my child's head seemed "squished" which I chalked up to age and didn't bother making any adjustments. So, I left it alone for a few months.

When I tried it again, my child LOVED it. The back of her neck was above the back of the carrier and she could move her head and arms around quite freely (She is always grabbing things off shelves or she can hold a snack and a sippee cup, so on). This carrier is BY FAR the most comfortable and easiest to use. Note that I did not use this carrier for a small baby nor have I used it front-facing use.

I was initially intimidated by the instructions for requiring assistance. I decided to practice putting it on by myself a few times. Now I'm a pro! Here's how I do it:
1. I snap the lower belt buckle as if I were going to wear my child in the front
2. I insert child and check each foot for the right insert location (i.e. in the leg holes, not the straps)
2. I slide her to my hip and confirm her feet are not inserted in the arm straps. I also lift up the arm strap so it's not hanging down to low to reach.
3. I use my right had to hold and slide her to the back while using my left hand to go through the arm strap.

My son is 2 months and maybe just too little for this so far, but I can see how in a month or so, it'll work much easier.

Really my only complaint is that it's impossible to click in the buckle across your back by yourself once you've got the baby in the carrier. And it's nearly impossible to unclick it later to take it off, with baby in the carrier.

UPDATE: This carrier broke today, with my six month old son on my back! There was a loud pop when a strap busted out of a seam and my oldest daughter and I grabbed the baby before he could fall!! This should not happen!!
