ABOUT The Ergobaby Omni
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 Omni baby carrier is their most versatile carrier to date! It has so many carry options and no need for an infant insert so it is cooler, easier to use and adjustable for your baby now and as they grow. But there is so much more awesomeness!
Suitable for Baby to Toddler
The Ergobaby Omni can be used from 3.2kg up to 20kg so you can use it from newborn and it will last you well into toddlerhood!
4 Different Carry Options
As your baby grows and becomes more aware, having different carry options can mean that your babywearing journey continues! With the Omni you can wear front carry (inward facing), hip carry, back carry and forward facing.
Front carry is perfect for newborns, little babies and sleeping! Hip and forward facing are great when your little one wants to see more of the world around them and back carry is great for you as they are easier to carry when bigger and you can share the world together.
Adjustable Seat Width
With three options, you can easily adjust the seat width for your baby to get that optimal position (see more HERE). As aguide, you can adjust the seat using the velcro tabs on the waist belt based on your baby height HOWEVER it is better to match your baby’s size and the seat should go knee crease to knee crease without over or under extending their hips.
Seat panel width is 12.5cm to 33cm.
Along the red lines for a baby between 50.8-61 cm (~0-3 months)
Along the yellow lines for a baby between 61-71 cm (~3-9 months)
Along the blue lines for a baby over 28 inches / 71 cm (~9 months +).
Adjustable Height Option
The height of the Ergobaby Omni can be adjusted using the pillow flap on the top on the back panel. You have three options for using this pillow flap.
1: Fold it inwards for newborns to provide additional neck support.
2: Fold and attach it down on the outside for little babies.
3. fold and attach it up for older babies/toddlers and for sleeping babies to provide extra head and neck support.
The Ergobaby Omni is comfortable for you too as you can decide to have either straight or crossed shoulder straps. Depending on how you like your fit, will decide which option you want to go for. Generally crossed straps is great for petit wearers or anyone that has narrow or sloping shoulders.
The lumbar support provides even more comfort for you the wearer! It allows for your baby’s weight to be distributed on a wider surface which is amazing and it’s a great option for anyone experiencing lower back pain.
Detachable Storage Pouch
This super cute and functional pouch can be attached to the front of your carrier and it is big enough to hold your phone, keys, card and money. Made in the same design as your Ergobaby Omni, it matches perfectly!
Air Mesh Option
If you live in a hotter climate, the air mesh option is perfect for you! With breathable mesh along the back panel and front of the shoulder straps, it means that your baby has better access to air flow and will stay cooler while being worn.
Ergobaby is known for their simple yet gorgeous designs. Block colours such as blacks or green or two colour design is their main focus but keep an eye out cause they do make some fun options such as Pink Camo!
