ABOUT The Ergobaby Embrace Baby Carrier
When we started our babywearing journey with our first, we were overwhelmed with the amount of baby carriers available! It can be hard to decide which baby carrier is for you but I hope to help with our “ABOUT” series that go through the different brands and advantages of each type. For more video’s, check out our YouTube Channel or Facebook Page! Don’t forget to take advantage of the closed captions of our video.
The Ergobaby Embrace is their latest baby carrier and it is such a wonderful option for that first year of baby’s life! Combining the snuggly parts of a stretchy wrap with the ease of a full buckle, it is a baby carrier that is functional and easy to use.
Suitable from newborn to baby (11kg)
You can start using the Embrace from 3.2kg and it is weight tested to 11kg (9-12 months depending on the size of your baby). Not everyone wears their babies past that point anyway so it is a great option for a lot of families.
3 Different Carry Options
With the Embrace baby carrier, there are 3 carry options – newborn, front carry and forward facing. Forward facing is a great option for when your baby gets older (and has good head/neck control and is clear of the back panel) so they can easily see the world around them!
Each of these carry options are easy to achieve. With the front carry and forward facing, there are no adjustments required and with the newborn option you fold the waist band twice and it reduces the height and the width of the back panel for a beautiful fit for your newborn.
Easy to use
This is a super easy carrier to put on and adjust for you! Just put on the waist belt, position your baby, cross and clip in the shoulder straps and tighten – all done! As mentioned above, there’s no technical adjusting for the different carry options either so you feel more confident quicker.
Made from similar fabric as a stretchy wrap, it is a super soft and snuggly knit fabric that feels like a hug and your most comfortable piece of clothing!
When you are wearing your baby in front or forward facing carry, you wear the waist belt ‘apron style’. This means that you put on the waist belt higher than other carriers as the fabric hangs down (compared with non-apron where the fabric hangs over the waist belt). Often this feels more comfortable as it sits of your true waist and makes it easier for you to sit down and move.
Ergobaby are renowned for their simple but elegant and relevant designs. Currently there are four gorgeous colours to choose from making sure there is something for every family.
Cross-able Shoulder Straps
With the Embrace, you cross the shoulder straps. This helps with weight distribution and is especially great for anyone that has narrow or sloping shoulders as it feels more secure.
The Embrace is also a great size and folds down super tiny so it easily fits in your nappy bag! Making it so easy to take everywhere with you.
