Ergobaby Original 3 Position Baby Carrier Review
Is your little baby always stirring up trouble while you go clean the kitchen? It is crazy to think these little buggers can bring a house down in your absence. And more importantly, the truth is you do not like being away from them either. Just the thought of having your precious baby scream in fear while you are out in the living room doing some other work drowns you under guilt and shame. To any parent, their child is their first priority. You may never get out of keeping an eye on them, even when they become some rude teenage pricks, but for when they are at their absolute vulnerable, it is always crucial to be around them. It is not just for safety that I say so, but also for the matter of child and parent bonding.
In an ideal world, your baby would never cry, and all the chores would do by themselves. Well, sorry to burst your bubble but this is not Disney land, and you are definitely not royalty. You have only a few million things to do at home and out. The loan interest has to be submitted, pick up your mother from the airport, cook, clean and let’s not forget the shopping spree you must embark on this festive season. Running around all day while caring for your baby can be stressful for you and the baby too.
One great way to keep both you and the baby satisfied is by using a baby carrier. A baby carrier is a device that lets you carry your baby on your back or your chest. This way your baby is always close to your heart, very literally, and you can keep an eye on them too. These things are wonderful to keep your baby safe and comfortable on you while you get on with the household chores, or run some outdoor errands. There are several carriers in the market today, and to tone down your confusion, I will review to you the Ergobaby Original 3 position baby carrier.

The Ergobaby Original 3 position baby carrier is a great little baby carrier. It is light, and carefully designed to suit the wearer just as much as the baby. However, I do think that it has some key usability flaws. While these downsides may be small or rather trivial for many, but to me being able to clean and travel with a carrier is crucial. I do think it is a great carrier for some light use, but I do not have high expectations from it.
