Less Naughty. More Nice. Ergo Baby carrier (giveaway)


Less Naughty. More Nice. is a way for me to promote amazing products with reviews and giveaways! I am sharing ethically produced products in advance of the Christmas buying season. I have a heart for fair trade, eco-friendly and U.S. made companies. It will continue through November 21st. I am receiving no financial compensation for these promotions. However, I have received sample product in order to supply you an authentic and honest review.}

By now you know I LOVE to wear my babies! I have found an amazing carrier by ERGObaby. I have to start with the most exciting thing to me about the company..their ethics. Yes, the carrier is amazing and I will get to that, but it makes me proud to wear my little guy in a carrier that I know was made fair trade. All carriers are made by workers 18 and older. ERGObaby carries an entire line made with 100% organic cotton. Love it! They also carry a line of Standard cotton carriers. ERGObaby is family owned and operated out of Maui, Hawaii. I have had such a pleasant time working with them. From using their website to direct contact via email. Makes me smile when a company loves what they are doing. Their passion for a great carrier really shows.

I chose to review the Organic green carrier with silver lining. My little Boatboy loves it. It's great that I can now wear him on my back as well. It is extremely comfortable either way and feels very secure. And this carrier is for an infant through toddler.

"ERGObaby’s baby carrier design supports a natural sitting position for babies, eliminating compression of the spine and hips that can be caused by unsupported suspension. The baby carrier also balances the baby's weight to parents' hips and shoulders, and alleviates physical stress for the parent."

I am very excited to give away an entire ERGObaby system ($193 value) compliments of ERGObaby themselves. The system includes the carrier, backpack and a front pouch. All components can be used individually or attached together for truly hands-free babywearing.

Buy your own: Check out the many options to choose from starting at 120.00. This would make an incredible gift to any expecting Mom!

Win your own: As I mentioned above, ERGObaby is giving away a system to one lucky Blondes, Poop & Mascara reader. Head over to ERGO baby and tell me your favorite color and why you must have this carrier!

My favorite color is Galaxy Grey

I need this because I have a 7month old that wants to be held all the time and a while and crazy 3.5yr old and its very hard to deal with him while holding my daughter. We also like to go on walks around the Malls and Mountains and this would be so much better then a stroller.

My favorite is the Heart Rose carrier - pink lining. I have a 12 week old baby girl who will only nap when held, and I need to wear her to be able to get anything done.

I forgot to say why I want one! I have 2 under 2 and it is just easier to have one strapped to you, while you're having to "hold" both of them....at least I know I won't drop both of them...haha

My favorite is the Galaxy Grey carrier with embroidery - galaxy lining. Shopping with an 8-month-old is a pain with a stroller and this would make it much easier and more enjoyable.

Chelsea said...

I like the cranberry color best, I would love to win it because I am expecting twins in 2 weeks and will need an extra hand free so a baby carrier is going to be a must have! maybe I can wear one on the front and one on the back :)

the monkey's mama said...

I love the idea of organic and so my favorite organic color would be the Organic Dark Chocolate carrier - Kona coffee lining

I NEED this because my kiddos are going to be really close in age and it would be soooo nice to carry baby girl #2 in an Ergo (we own a Moby but the Ergo seems so much easier and faster to put on!). Hands free with another toddler is priceless.

the monkey's mama said...

What a love about your blog (besides the awesome title!) is the cute cute pictures of your kiddos!

I love the Organic Dark Chocolate. I would love to win this. I have a month old baby that loves to be held all the time and also a 2 years old daughter. This carrier is perfect because I can use for both my daughters since this can hold up to 40 pounds! thanks for the chance.

I love this carrier because it works for newborns up to 40 pound kids. My favorite fabric is the Galaxy Grey carrier with embroidery.

Katrina said...

I have heard great things about this! I want one so bad! I like the Galaxy Grey carrier with embroidery and galaxy lining

Sarah said...

I need this because I have a newborn that loves to be held - and the Ergo is something that my husband and I can both use to keep her a little closer to us.


My favorite is the organic black carrier with embroidery.

I MUST have this carrier because my 13 month baby loves to be worn, but we just don't have a carrier that fits his weight. This would be perfect for him and baby #2!

I really like the Black ERGObaby Sport carrier with white stitching - black lining. I need this for my niece who wears her baby all the time, but could use a really good carrier.

KimiStar said...

tell me your favorite color: Galaxy Grey
why i must have this carrier: i'm going to be a first-time mom in january when we bring home a newborn thru the blessing of domestic adoption. many babywearing friends highly recommend the ergo baby as "the baby carrier" to have for bonding, for new parenthood, for just being able to get things done around the house.

I love that dark chocolate kona! Have to have it. I walk 4 miles around the lake where I live everyday but can't take my stroller cause it's not all terrain so I carry my baby ( now 15lbs) around the lake 4 miles every day and could use a hand to ease my newly acquired tendinitis!!
