For someone unfamiliar with Ergobaby, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
We are dedicated to building a global community of confident parents with smart, ergonomic solutions that enable and encourage bonding between parents and babies. We are known for our award-winning baby carriers, and recognized as a leader in ergonomics and comfort, but we have also expanded our product lines to include the award-winning Nursing Pillow, Sleeping Bag + Swaddle Set and Swaddlers.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
Back in 2002, a mother living on Maui was not satisfied with the baby carrying options available to her. Looking to keep her new son close to her body, she tried several different carriers, some of which worked fairly well, but nothing that satisfied her needs for comfort and ergonomics. With a background in design, she set out to create something that was both comfortable and easy for parents to use. Beginning with a parent’s love for her child and her desire to keep him close, the ergonomic, comfortable design of the Ergobaby Baby Carrier was born.
With that humble design, Karin Frost revolutionized how we carry babies. Her soft structured carrier (SSC) design has become the gold standard. Our carriers give you the freedom to enjoy life’s big and small adventures, all while keeping baby close.
Ergobaby Carriers are ergonomically designed to cradle your baby in a natural sitting position and to evenly distribute baby’s weight between your hips and shoulders. Ergobaby Carriers are the ultimate in comfort and ergonomics, allowing you to carry your baby from those early days to toddler (12-45 lbs).*
With over 30 carriers in five different categories — Original, Organic, Performance, Four Position 360 and Adapt (no insert needed!), plus Swaddlers for newborns, a Sleeping Bag + Swaddle Set and Nursing Pillow, Ergobaby is a leading, premium baby consumer products company that creates innovative solutions to meet the needs of today’s parents.
What are the most popular and newest products from Ergobaby?
We recently introduced The ADAPT baby carrier, which offers Ergobaby’s renowned comfort and ergonomics in an easy-to-use, 3 position carrier that adapts to a growing baby, from newborn to toddler (7-45 lbs.), no infant insert needed! Extra-padded shoulder straps with a crisscross option and double-adjustment waistbelt with lumbar support offer a new level of convenience and comfort for parents.
The Ergobaby Four Position 360 Carrier is one of our most popular carriers. It’s innovative design features a structured bucket seat to support baby in an ergonomic seated position and maintain ideal hip and spine positioning. The revolutionary, adjustable width carrier seat is designed to ensure comfort for baby in all four carry positions. The carrier sports an adjustable back support feature and retains the adjustable hood that is a hallmark of Ergobaby carriers providing protection from the sun, added head support while baby is sleeping and additional privacy while nursing. The extra wide waistband has received rave reviews for exceptional parent comfort and is designed to be worn in variable positions on the waist to ensure that baby is always at a kissable carrying height.
All Ergobaby carriers have been acknowledged as a “hip healthy” product by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. Our baby carriers are comfortable, ergonomic, and safe for baby’s hips.
What sets Ergobaby apart in the baby marketplace?
Ergobaby is designed by parents, and we have stayed true to our mission to create ergonomic solutions that enable and encourage bonding between parents and babies. We have 15 years of experience in designing innovative and ergonomic baby carriers.
