Our goal is to give parents innovative products that simplify their lives by bringing the best in comfort, safety and convenience to products that they need and use daily.”
Dr. Moira Robertson, a doctor of Chiropractic shared, “It is important to make sure the baby is positioned properly in a carrier to ensure healthy spine development as the baby grows. Front-outward position is safe if a carrier has good features. A good carrier must have a wide base so that the baby’s hips are properly locked into the socket, besides supporting the wearer’s back health. Child’s leg and hips should not be dangling down or straightened.”

Having used Ergobaby before for my first child, I find the new Ergobaby 360 Carrier convenient with the four possible positions. Aaqib loves to be carried front-facing especially when we are in the park as he loves watching what is in front of him. The most important thing is it is comfortable for both of us!” said Nana.
