Tips for using your ERGObaby Carrier - Back Carry Position

Written by Lou on August 22nd, 2012.      0 comments

Here's some handy tips on how to use the ERGObaby as your little one grows.


Part II - Back Carry Position

Usually around 6 months, a child will be happy moving to your back. We recommend you have another person with you to help for the first time you try this carry but with a small amount of practice you should find you can easily do it by yourself.

Don't forget to do the ERGO dance - which is bouncing gently up and down once you've secured baby in the carrier - as this will help settle your little one when they are in the carrier.

And here's an another version showing a 7 month old being put into the back carry from the Belly Beyond TV archives. You can use which ever method you are most comfortable with.

You probably already know that the ERGObaby is recommended for use up to 20kg and this video shows you what 20kg in an ERGObaby actually looks like!

We are happy to help by telephone, skype or in store if you have any queries about your ERGObaby Carrier just let us know!

Tips for using your ERGObaby Carrier - Infant Insert

Written by Lou on August 22nd, 2012.      0 comments

Here's some handy tips on how to use the ERGObaby as your little one grows.


Part 1 - Tips for using the Infant insert

In our experience, some babies gain excellent head control from 12 weeks but even if they do so, they still need additional support. If this is the case, you can remove the pillow from the insert and use that alone to sit on inside the ERGObaby Carrier. This props them at an appropriate height without confining them in the insert.

Fitting tips

The cushioned Shell combined with the removable Pillow can be used together for newborns to ensure they are seated correctly and have the head and neck support provided by cushioned outside layer (for Babies from newborn to 4-5 months, and from 3.2 to 5.5 kg / 7 to 12 pounds).

Larger newborns that still need the head and neck support can use the Heart2Heart™ outer Shell layer, without the Pillow (for babies that are under 4 months, but over 5.5 kg / 12 pounds).

Smaller infants that have strong head and neck control but lack the height for correct positioning in the Ergobaby Carrier can use the pillow without the outer layer. (Babies that are over 4 months, but under 5.5kg / 12 pounds).

The ultimate maternity clothing, Ripe Maternity, has arrived at Belly Beyond.


The Winter collection is still popular here in NZ because of our, er, "lovely" long winter but we have new Spring styles arriving every week with a preview of the Spring Collection above.  Such a blast of colour reminds us of what we've got to look forward to in the coming warmer days - if they ever arrive!
