Ergobaby – Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh

“Ergobaby provided the Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh for me to try and review.”

It came perfectly packaged & lots of information within the booklet.

It came, just in time for a weekend in the country, with my parents, we had lots planned, so to take this carrier was very exciting.

Although the booklet is great, you do need to have a proper look, as to put on, and secure baby, you need to know what you are doing.



The hubby and I did struggle for a little bit, trying to figure out what to do.

Mainly due to the fact, we cant seem to do a task together without some frustration ha ha


Once piglet was safely in, straight away, I knew this was a great product.





We spent the day at a car museum, So piglet was carried by me, for a fair few hours, and it didn’t feel like that, She felt supported, as did I.

She was nearing 8 months at the time, so not a light newborn, and it was so comfortable.

There’s a mini “bum bag” by their feet, which I used to carry, my phone, her dummy, that kind of thing.

There is also a rain cover that comes out of the part near their chest and ties to straps to keep baby dry, which strangely for the UK, I didn’t need to use, but when we do, I’ll update this.



I was using the Baby Bjorn for many months, although it wasn’t ideal for my ‘baby carrier fitness class’. The Ergo baby was by far, amazing for this, doing a fitness class with a baby attached to you, you need all the support you can get, and this carrier was great for this. Especially the mesh part, it allowed us both to breath far easier, the shoulder straps are so comfortable on your shoulders and weight is distributed evenly. The only thing I would say, is, it takes a little time to get the hang of removing baby, as can be a little tricky. But that could be down to being a sweaty tired mumma, after the class!!

Piglet, always seems content and happy and this is the most important thing to me, she is supported, and I am comfortable, I never have the feeling of… get this off of me! So to me, that’s a win win.

I am yet to try the different options available on this carrier, including a hip hold and carrying them on your back, so will update when we try this.



I highly recommend this carrier, All thoughts are my own, Please ask permission before sharing or using my imagery.
