As a family, we love to be outside. I love to hike and Lindsay loves to explore, but having a baby added another level of difficulty. We love to bring Juniper along on all our adventures so we knew we needed to find the right tools for the job.
Baby carriers are everywhere and each one has its own use case. We actually have several but when it comes to long range carrying forward or backwards, the Ergo is our go-to. I realize that this is among the most recommended carriers, but it really is amazing.
According to several studies, there are many benefits to baby wearing. Babies who are worn/carried:
- Cry less
- Learn more
- Are smarter
- Are more comfortable
Early on Lindsay used this carrier with the infant insert to get things done around the house. Now we use it when hiking or carrying for long distances. The belt area adds the right support and the higher you wear it the further up your back your baby will sit. So as you can see in the pictures I had that up high so our peanut could see over my shoulders.
These pictures are from a recent trip to Colorado where we spent some time hiking in the Garden of the Gods. You can see that Juniper is having a great time riding along and enjoying the view.
