Throughout the natural world, mamas are carrying their babies everywhere: not just kangaroos, but also birds and bats, otters and sloths, and of course, primates from the teeniest lemur to the mighty gorilla. Of course, humans caught on to the natural wisdom of keeping their babies close a long time ago, and cultures all over the world have developed their own unique babywearing styles. For your own all-natural baby-carrying needs, you can't go wrong with the Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier , which boasts all the benefits of the Original Ergobaby Carrier, plus 100% organic cotton! As with other Ergo carriers, the Ergobaby Organic Carrier positions your baby for ergonomic comfort and proper hip, pelvis, and spine growth, and places her weight on your hips and shoulders, so you can snuggle your sleepy babe all day long without hurting your back. Some features of the Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier include: All-natural materials: The Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier is made with gentle, natural 100% certified organic cotton canvas, with 100% cotton batting inside the body of the carrier. No yucky chemicals! Relief for your back: The secret to the comfort of the Ergobaby Carrier is the thick, padded waistband - think of the support bands that movers and weight lifters use. Between the waistband and the thick, ultra-padded shoulder straps, you should be able to wear your baby for hours without any discomfort. And this is one tough baby carrier: parents routinely use it to carry kids as old as age 2. Lots of options: You can start using your Ergobaby Organic Carrier at birth, with the newborn insert (sold separately), and as she gets older, you can try different carry positions - along with the snuggly front carry, older kids can be carried on your hip or on your back. Convenience: Wearing your baby in an Ergobaby Organic Carrier leaves your hands free to go about your day, and it lets you skip using a stroller when you go out (the other folks on mass transit will love you for it). It's also fantastic for air travel, since you don't have to wrangle a stroller. And more: The Ergobaby Organic Carrier includes a convenient sleeping hood, which gives baby some privacy while sleeping or nursing; the hood tucks into a built-in pocket when you're not using it. Another pocket is provided for essentials like your keys, wallet, or cell phone. And the Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier is machine-washable (see instructions below). And finally: it seems obvious that a baby who spends all day snuggled against Mom's heartbeat in an Ergobaby Organic Baby Carrier would be happier, but the science also backs it up. Studies show that babywearing results in babies that cry less. It makes perfect sense: it's only natural, right? Spilling the Beans: The Ergobaby Carrier is very straightforward to use in the front position. Using it on the side takes some adjustment to the straps, but once you learn how your Ergo Baby works, it's a cinch. Wearing a baby on your back, however, will take some practice. We recommend you start out sitting down on the edge of a nice, soft bed or with a "spotter" nearby until you get the hang of it. Take your time and be patient - soon enough you'll be an Ergobaby pro! Suggested washing instructions from company: Use mild detergent on a gentle cycle in the washer and dry until seams are slightly damp. Spot wash when needed and do not wash frequently. Frequent washing and harsh detergents can cause 100% cotton to break down faster.
Please note: We are only able to ship GroVia cloth diapers and accessories to addresses within the United States. ï»¿ The early days of parenthood require you to adjust your attitude towards things like sleep, extended high-pitched wailing, and other people's body fluids. Don't worry, we know you can handle it - but we think it might help if you tried out the GroVia diapering system, featuring the GroVia Shell with Hook & Loop Closure . This system might just change your attitude about cloth diapering, by making it easier to minimize diaper waste. The GroVia Shell with Hook & Loop Closure is part of a hybrid system: the Shell is meant for extended wear, while soakers are inserted and switched out when they get yucky. You've got three soaker options: GroVia Organic Cotton Soaker Pads: these gentle organic pads snap into the GroVia Shell. That means zero garbage, the easy way, since it's easier to clean a multitude of soakers than it is to clean full-sized cloth diapers, and extra soakers take up far less space in your diaper bag than extra diapers. GroVia BioSoaker : sure, it's disposable, but it's also biodegradable, and has far less bulk than a disposable diaper. And the eco-friendly materials are kind to baby bottoms and the Earth, too. Try both! Use the Cotton Soaker Pads when you're at home, and the disposable BioSoakers on the go for more convenience. See how easy that is? GroVia Shells are adjustable to fit kids from 8 to 30 pounds (birth to potty training). The Hook & Loop Closure system for these hybrid cloth diapers allows you to adjust the size more precisely than you can with snaps, and it's easier to make the diaper teeny-tiny for a newborn or huge for a great big toddler. Tuck-under laundry tabs protect the hook/loop closures from sticking to other items in the wash, and help to keep them working - and reviewers tell us that this Velcro-like closing system stays in place beautifully. The outer layer of GroVia Hook & Loop Shells is waterproof TPU (dioxin-free), and the material and leg gussets help keep the nasty stuff in. And of course, GroVia cloth diapers are absolutely adorable - just look at the pictures above. Check out your options, eco-Mom, and if you're looking for a flexible cloth diapering solution, go GroVia! Got an itty bitty escape artist? You can get all the flexibility of GroVia cloth diaper shells and add snaps - check out the GroVia Diaper Shell with Snap Closure . ï»¿
