And the Winner Is: Ergobaby Omni 360 Mesh Baby Carrier

There’s nothing better than baby snuggles. But at some point, you’re going to need your hands back. A baby carrier allows you to keep baby close, hands-free, so you can tackle all the other items on your to-do list. Ergobaby’s Omni 360 Mesh Carrier grows with baby and can be used right from the newborn days all the way up to the time they’re 4 years old. Not only does this lightweight carrier offer four carry positions, it also provides ergonomic, lumbar support for your back—because, your growing baby is also getting heavier by the day. A mesh design offers plenty of ventilation to keep you and baby cool and comfy, and it even comes with a detachable storage pouch.

What We Love

  • With built-in lumbar support, an ergonomic design and padded, curved shoulder and waist straps, you’ll remain comfortable as you carry baby—plus, the straps can be crossed to offer even more support

  • The carrier is one of the most lightweight options out there, weighing under 2 lbs; it’s machine-washable and super-easy to clean

  • It supports a child weighing up to 45 pounds, and can be used from the newborn days (insert sold separately) well into toddlerhood

  • Four carrying positions (front-outward, front-inward, hip and back) keep you and baby happy, and adjustable head support ensures your baby’s comfort

  • With a structured bucket seat and built-in adjustable sliders, it supports baby’s hips and legs ergonomically in all carry positions

  • 3D-mesh panels allow for breathability and airflow, and a tuck-away UPF hood provides sun protection for baby

“Confession: When it came to the question of Ergobaby vs. BabyBjorn carriers, I was always a BabyBjorn fan. But the Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh carrier made me a convert. I love the built-in seat adjustment sliders (no snaps or zippers!). Thanks to the lumbar support, my back never hurt from carrying my little one. The breathable fabric kept us both cool and comfortable. And I’m so thankful for the detachable pouch—finally, a place to put your keys and cash when you’re just running out for a quick errand.” - Ashlee Neuman, content director at The Bump
