Ergobaby 4D Stretch Baby Carrier Review

Ergobaby 4D Stretch Baby Carrier Review

There are many thick, polyester baby carrier designs that are very popular among new parents – and for a good reason.

However, once summer hits, you’ll want something more breathable, that will allow you to feel comfortable and cool even though the temperatures outside don’t agree with you. This applies to the comfort of the baby as well.

Furthermore, a wrap carrier will not be as restrictive as a backpack-style one. The soft fabric will make you feel much closer to your baby, and the wrap design will offer you all the support that you need. And out of all baby wrap carrier designs, the 4D Stretch by Ergobaby seems to stand out the most.

About The Product​

Ergobaby’s 4D Stretch was made to be exactly the way the name implies: a stretchy fabric that will flex in every direction possible so that you can have your perfect fit. It is a superior fabric that won’t start sagging due to the baby weight, and it will offer just as much support that you need. All you’ll have to do is to stretch and tie the knot just as much as you need!

This baby carrier is great for both newborns and toddlers. It can take anything from 4 pounds to 35 pounds, and you can leave it on throughout the day – no need to tie it on every time you need to carry the baby. You just snuggle him/her into the pouch.

Its centered pocket as well as contrasting stitching will guide your tying process and make everything easier for you. Furthermore, the texture of the fabric is soft, moisture absorbent and offers superior comfort for both you and the baby.

Here are the main features that the Ergobaby Wrap Carrier provides:

  • Fabric made of 95% cotton and 5% elastane to provide a perfect fit, but still be lightweight and allow your skin to breathe
  • Perfect for newborns and toddlers weighing 8 to 35 pounds
  • Five easy-tying positions that you may pre-tie before you put the infant into the carrier
  • 4D Stretch ultra soft material that offers comfort for the entire day, as well as superior support

Since it provides superior back and leg support for the infant, this is the perfect choice for you if you have a newborn baby. The feet won’t be dangling awkwardly to the side, so there will not be any risks of hip dysplasia.

The Results

I have to admit, I was rather scared when I saw the way you had to wrap this baby carrier around you; but now, after wearing it for a while, I realized there couldn’t be a better one.

I love the fact that this baby carrier is very stylish; I literally use it as a blouse, to the point that I even forget that I’m wearing it. I usually tie it around me in the morning, and each time my son wants to be carried, I simply put him into the little “pouch” in front of me.

He loves it, and if it were his choice, he’d probably spend the whole day in the carrier without moving an inch. He is newly-born, so he sleeps a lot – and the moment I put him in the carrier, he’s out like a light. He’s like a baby kangaroo that got into his mommy’s pouch.

This came with directions on how to tie it properly, so I had no problems in that aspect. The price is a little above the average, but if you consider the comfort that it offers, I’d say it was totally worth it.

What Other People Say

Every other review that I read complimented this wrap carrier for its comfort. Like me, everyone simply ties it on in the morning and leaves it on for the rest of the day.

Apparently, it’s a bit problematic if you live in an area where it’s very hot, but for moderate weather (say 25 degrees Celsius or so) it’s just perfect.

Plus, even if you sweat, the cotton is absorbent. It won’t feel uncomfortable and sweaty – and unlike other synthetic fabrics, it won’t block the heat from exiting. Both you and your baby will stay cool even if the weather seems to be of another opinion.

What We Like

It’s very soft! Unlike most backpack-type baby carriers, this doesn’t press or burn against my skin, which is why I have no problems wearing it for a longer time.

Plus, I can fit it to be perfect just for me – as opposed to most baby carriers that are only just “close enough.”

What We Don't Like

I did notice that if the weather goes over 30 degrees, it starts getting steamy. If you live in a tropical area, you might want to consider something with thinner straps, because these will heat you up in an instant. Plus, tying this can be rather troublesome, so if you have to take it off during the day, it may be challenging to put it back on.

Buying Advice

This baby carrier does not necessarily enter the “cheap” category; however, if you go to Amazon, you have all the chances of finding it cheaper than anywhere else. All it takes is some good researching.

Aside from free shipping, you may also get some pretty good discounts via coupon codes. Amazon sometimes releases them, so you may want to take advantage and grab them as soon as you see them.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I’m very happy with this baby carrier. It’s very comfortable, practical, and very easy to clean. If my son spits or drools on it, I’ll just have to throw it into the washing machine, and I’m done with it.

Plus, he loves it, so I love it too. He stops fussing whenever I put him in, so I can finally get some stuff done while keeping him quiet. I definitely recommend investing in this wrap baby carrier from Ergobaby.
