#NBFluffNStuff Ergo Baby Bundle of Joy soft structured carrier and infant insert review and #GIVEAWAY {US}

Oh how I love baby wearing! The first carrier I ever bought was an Ergo Baby Carrier! It's blue and it has been used and used for the last 5 years!! I started baby wearing later on in my 'crunchy' journey and have never work a newborn. I LOVED wearing both my boys on my back in the seated back carry! It's kinda like a piggy back ride but you have your hands free. It's awesome knowing that your little one is safely strapped to your back, in a comfortable, properly seated position.
We are an active family and especially when out and about, it comes in VERY handy to be wearing your baby/child and not have to worry about him/her running off, getting lost or going into the street. I've used my Ergo at the zoo, at parades, at the beach, shopping, running errands. You name it, I've probably worn one of my boys at it!

I contacted Ergo Baby to see if they would be willing to send an infant insert to me to review on my little girl. Much to my surprise, instead of sending me an insert only, they sent me an ErgoBaby Bundle of Joy in organic Dark Chocolate with chocolate insert!!
This is what I received:

Infant insert on the left and carrier on the right:
 The front of the carrier (part that faces away form your body when in use): 
 The inside of the carrier! This is the part that actually rests against your baby/child when in use:
 The infant insert. Notice the little pillow at the bottom right. The removable pillow sits at the bottom of the insert and helps keep pressure of the baby's developing sacrum!
The base of the insert where the pillow sits:

Once I received my carrier, I googled a video tutorial so I could see how to properly use the Ergo with the infant insert. I found this really awesome video put on Youtube by Ergobaby that explains step, by step how to properly use the infant insert! You can view it here! I am a big visual learner, and so the video really helped me a lot!

I must say that I am really impressed with this baby carrier.
I was able to easily use the infant insert and carry my tiny 8 lb baby girl comfortably in the carrier with no issues at all. She LOVES being worn in the Ergo. She does not fuss, or cry! It depends on the time of day, but I've worn her and she's been totally awake and looking around, and at other times she's so comfy that she falls right to sleep! It's the best feeling ever to have her right on my chest sleeping peacefully!
I am a BABYWEARING addict!!
I do want to include this image in all my baby wearing posts! I cannot stress to you how important it is to wear your baby/child correctly.
There is a common occurrence that unfortunately happens quite often with SOME baby carriers.
Hip Dysplasia!
As you can see from the image above, the thigh and knee need to be supported in the proper 'seated' or 'frog-leg' position. The Ergo baby carrier allows for you to wear your baby/child properly!

The infant insert reminds me of a little cocoon that safely wraps around your baby, keeping their legs in the proper position to avoid strain or injury!
Isn't she cute!?

 The insert has an adjustable strap that simply snaps to the other side of the carrier (snaps on the right) so that you can get the right fit for your little bundle of joy!

 Here is some more information about the Ergo Baby carrier (taken from Ergo's website):
This carrier is really a very comfortable carrier. Both for Momma (or dad) and baby/child. I've worn my boys for hours on end on my back and have had no issues at all. No soreness, no achy muscles... nothing! It really is a very easy carrier to use! It is very user friendly and is not complicated at all! What is more awesome is that not only can you wear your baby on your front or back, but you can also use the Ergo in a hip carry position as seen in this Youtube video!

Once your little one is inside the Ergo carrier, it is really easy to reach around and adjust them so they are in the most comfortable position.
 As with any baby carrier, it is vital that when wearing a tiny infant you keep their face clear and unobstructed so they can breath easily! Ideally you want the baby to be at the height that you can bend your neck down and kiss them on the forehead.
We LOVE our ergo!
