I bought this carrier when my son was 5 months old, and I'm not sure how I functioned without it when my daughter was little! I used this carrier on a trip to Las Vegas in the beginning of August. Even in the 100+ degree weather, this carrier was awesome! My son and I were both extremely comfortable while walking around outside in the extreme heat. Having this carrier makes it a breeze to go through airport security, shop, do housework, etc. I never leave home without my Ergo!

I rarely leave negative reviews, but I had to for this product. I am super bummed that I wasted so much money on it. I used only a ring sling with my first child, but wanted the option of an SSC with my second. After a lot of research on SSCs, I chose this one because of the Ergo's excellent reputation, recommendations from friends who love their regular Ergos, and we would be moving south when baby was a few months old. I thought this would be just like a regular Ergo, but more breathable. It is definitely not. I purchased the carrier when I was pregnant, then a natural infant insert after baby arrived and was just 6 lbs 11 oz. I used it a few times with her as a newborn and it was relatively comfortable to wear. She fit snugly in the insert and seemed happy in there. She grew very quickly and soon the insert wasn't necessary, but the little pillow was. This is when I realized just how weirdly shaped this carrier really is. Getting the little pillow placed and her with it was ridiculous. It moved around inside. It wasn't quite high enough for baby to see anything outside the carrier. I even tried using blankets to boost her instead, which was a little easier to maneuver, but still uncomfortable for both of us. The older she got, the worse this situation was. She is now 9 months old and we moved from NY to GA a few months ago. First, it's still quite hot, mesh or not. Second, she is huge for her age (she was 28 inches long and 18 lbs at just 6 months old) but STILL her head doesn't stick out of this carrier. She will arch her back, pull on the straps and strain to see out or scrunch her body down and shove her face under my arm to look out the armpit hole. She is not happy in there like she is in the ring sling, wrap, or even the cheap SSC I picked up to use around the house instead of this one. We both love baby wearing, just not this awful carrier. One-size-fits-most seems like a great selling point for this carrier. My husband and I would both be able to use it! But despite being an average size adult woman (5' 6" and 150 lbs), I have to tighten every strap on this (save the waist) all the way down as small as it will go. Again, the front is so long that it just swallows my baby. As you can imagine, having her trying to peek out by whatever means necessary is really uncomfortable for us both and frustrating for her. Not what you want when baby wearing. The carrier is well made and straps are secure, but easy to adjust, just as one would expect from the Ergo brand. It's an ill-fitting, massively long carrier. I wish I had been able to return it once I realized it was just never going to work for us. In the image she was 20 lbs. and had rolled receiving blankets plus my hand holding her up higher.

"Must Have" baby gear!

By Nursesmith2008

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ergobaby Performance Collection - Charcoal Black:

Our Ergo carrier changed my life! We had a "high needs" baby if you will. If he wasn't being held he was fussing. Between soothing him and nursing on demand it became impossible to get anything done around the house. I bought an Ergo out of desperation. From the day it arrived until he turned about 11months I used it daily! It went everywhere we went. I especially loved that I could nurse him without having to stop what I was doing and sit down. He is now 15 months and I still pull it out on cranky days when he wants to be clingy. Best baby item I purchased!

    Comments about Ergobaby Performance Collection - Charcoal Black:

    Love it! I have carried my daughter around in it since she was a week old. I love the performance as opposed to the original because of its breathability. It is light, easy to adjust and very comfortable. Also I got the infant insert as a gift but I only used it once. I felt it squished her too much. Instead I used the pillow that came with it. Basically she sat on the pad (you could use a rolled blanket) at the bottom of the carrier. It works perfect for her legs. A boys is the extra pocket on the front for keys, phone ... diaper.

        Comments about Ergobaby Performance Collection - Charcoal Black:

        After trying on several carriers, the ergo baby performance was by far the most comfortable and breathable. As someone who always runs warm, I didn't want a thick carrier that would make me or my baby sweaty during our summer adventures. My husband was also impressed that it was easily adjustable to fit both him or I. Lastly I love having the buckle around the waist instead of the new velcro.

        Better for toddler

        Comments about Ergobaby Performance Collection - Charcoal Black:

        I bought this primarily to use as a backpack carrier with my toddler and chose it due to the high weight max. It is great for my husband (5'11") to carry our 2 year old on his back. The straps fit him well, and our daughter is very comfortable. I am very petite (4'11") and found the straps too bulky when I tried to wear it as a backpack with my toddler, or a front pack with my 5 month old. Also, my baby prefers to face forward, so this will only be used as a backpack carrier in our house.
