So soft and comfortable!

Arbar.2 years ago

I love this carrier, I have a 2 month old, about 11lbs and we've been using it in infant mode. He usually falls asleep after about 5 min in it. The fabric is very soft. This provides more support than a fabric wrap and is much more comfortable/less bulky than the Lillebaby or other Ergo Baby carriers. My only complaint is the lack of head support. There is no head support! This makes it difficult to get things done, like laundry, dishes, etc. while baby is napping in the carrier. Once he has better control over his head this won't matter much, but for the carrier to be specific to newborns, they should really add something for head support.

This was super complicated to get on and nearly impossible without help from another person. I wanted something a little easier that I could slide on and had more support on my daughters booty. This wasn’t for me, but the quality was great, the material is very nice

So good

Lily S. . 3 weeks ago

I already own 2 ergo Omni 360s but wanted a soft stretchy fabric carrier to use at home. However, after buying 3 different types of fabric carriers (baby ktaan, a linen sling ring, and a long fabric wrap), I still never could get the hang of using them at home. I’d always struggle to get the baby’s positioning “just right” and be paranoid about bad positioning. By babies also hated being in them for some reason. A friend made me aware of this carrier and it was a miracle! Since it’s a belt/buckle style, it was so much more intuitive for me to use and I didn’t have to worry about whether or not they were in an “ergonomic M leg positioning” all the time. The material is super soft and stretchy and my baby has been taking so many of her naps in this (currently she’s still doing all her naps on me). Lifesaver

Easy to use and baby loves it

Brianne . 2 months ago

User friendly design with lots of stability. Great for walking, hiking or just bringing baby around the house while you do things.

I got my life back

Brittany A. . 2 months ago

My baby will only sleep on me and wants to be held 24/7. The embrace carrier gave me my hands back so baby can still be close but I’m able to play with my toddler, cook meals, vacuum, etc! It’s truly the best thing I got!

Easy to use

Kelsi C. . 2 months ago

I like the embrace because it's quick to get on/off, easy to do with 1 hand while the other holds the baby, and it seems to be very comfortable for her. Having 3 straps to manage is great; I'd been using a wrap, but it was taking too long to don/doff when I just needed to get it on quickly. It's a great fit for my small baby, and I'm thinking I'll get another ergo as she grows out of this one. The only missing piece is a small pocket or sleeve for my cell phone, and we'd be set!

Cozy and easy to use

Charlotte C. . 2 months ago

I already had the ergo Omni 360 with my first, but I wanted something more cozy and soft for this baby. I could never figure out the wraps, so I figured I’d give this a try. It is cozy like a wrap, but it’s easy to put on by yourself and easy to take off if you need to feed. The only issue I have is that her head bounces around when we’re walking, so sometimes I will add a light blanket to support her head. I thought it would be a waste of money since I already had an Ergo, but I have used it every day since I bought it. I highly recommend this!!

I’ve used many types of wraps/carriers and I never really loved them. They always ended up being too hot, not supportive enough, or difficult to use. I decided to try this one and low and behold I actually love it! It’s so easy to use and so comfortable to wear! My baby falls asleep almost immediately and I love that I can use it with a newborn up to a year! Definitely recommend!

So soft!

I ordered this carrier for my second child after being unsatisfied with our previous one. This carrier is so soft and easy to don! I also love the sage color.

Plus Size Mom Win

Margaret G. . 3 months ago

We love this carrier so much. I am a plus size mom and pretty tall so I was worried about fit, but it fits great and is very comfy. Baby loves it and sleep in it while i get things done.

I found out about Ergobaby

Evelina P. . 3 months ago

I found out about Ergobaby when my son was 3.5 months old (prior to that I didn’t use a carrier with him) and since getting the Embrace carrier, we take walks every day. I love that it is soft, light, breathable, easy to put on by myself and isn’t hard or overly structured. Would highly recommend! I just wish I started when he was a newborn!

Lack of options

MelG . 5 months ago

I wish it had at least three sizing options instead of two. If i use the newborn options my baby doesn’t get too much head support and if i use the regular option it covers her head which limits air flow. I also wish the waist band was padded all the way around bc it digs into my waist and gets uncomfortable pretty quick. I have a short torso so it might just be my body shape isnt compatible. I might have to return it if i can’t use it comfortably, I’m gonna give it one more try.

Perfect newborn carrier!

Hannah L. . 6 months ago

This is so easy to put on and off by yourself and the fabric is so soft. It’s comfortable for me to wear and it seems comfortable to my baby because he easily falls asleep once I’m wearing him. As a mom of 4, it’s already come in handy on many occasions. As someone who’s 4 weeks postpartum and still recovering, carrying my child in this carrier as opposed to just using my arms (especially for walking around or handling things at home) makes it much easier on my back. Opt for the mesh version if you’re in a warmer climate or will be using this mostly during spring/summer. It’ll be worth the extra money! Would recommend or even gift to a new parent. Makes for a perfect baby gift!

Easy to put on

Erica C. . 7 months ago

I'm so glad I received this Embrace Soft Air Mesh Newborn Carrier from Stellar Product Testing Panel because we love it! First of it is so easy to put on. No twisting in circles and wrapping it around. I love how weightless it feels on me yet it supports baby so well. The material is breathable so neither baby or I are too warm. It's soft and comfortable for baby! I absolutely love that baby can be facing my chest and as she grows can also be facing away from me so she can see what is going on. I definitely think this should be on every expectant parents wish list!

Embrace Review

Alex L. . 8 months ago

Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this carrier. Overall I really liked the Embrace Newborn Carrier. I thought it was manufactured really well and did not feel cheap at all. It was very lightweight and breathable. I did not feel like I was overly hot or that my baby was uncomfortable in anyway. They only minor issue that I found was it took a little bit of time to get the baby “strapped in”. My wife had to help me situate the baby and get her in for me. Other than those I enjoyed the style and the color of the carrier. It was super comfortable for me to wear and for the baby.

I love it

Vivian . 9 months ago

Material is so soft. I make sure to take this with me every where I go since baby doesn’t last too long being inside his stroller. He always falls asleep within minutes of wearing him.

Hot for baby and lacks neck support

JB . 9 months ago

Not my favorite and would’ve gone baby bjorn mini had I known how hot this was going to be for the baby. We keep our house cool and he still sweats a lot.

Shoulder Straps Are a Pain

mrsdsmith33 . 9 months ago

I really wanted to love this carrier to use around the house as I have the ErgoBaby Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh carrier and it was a bit too bulky for every day house wearing. However, the shoulder straps are meant to cup your shoulders instead of sit in between your neck and shoulder. So anytime you need to lift your shoulders, the carrier straps move and subsequently need to be adjusted which isn't easy. As long as your arms are constantly at your sides, no big deal. However, it's a big deal if you're trying to do housework or anything with your arms. The search continues.
