Ergobaby launches 360 Carrier

If there is one piece of baby gear I haven’t changed since becoming a mom 5 1/2 years ago, it would be my Ergobaby carrier, seriously. I have used my Ergo with all three of my babies, even still with Gemma. Living in NYC and being on the go all the time, baby wearing is key to getting around town. Last week, I had the opportunity to attend Ergobaby newest launch, the 360 carrier! The event held at the Museum of Natural History was the perfect venue for a family weekend outing, something that Ergo prides itself on.

Ergo baby  is  now  celebrating  its  10  year  anniversary.  Over  the  years  their  carriers  have  evolved  while  staying  true to  the design   principles. The   360  Carrier  offers  parents  the  convenience  of  four  carry  positions,  including  forward  facing  position (huge!),  while  maintaining  the  highest  standards  in  ergonomic  design  to  ensure  safety  and  comfort  for  both baby and  parent.

This carrier could not have come at a better time for my family. With Gemma just turning a year, she is at that age where she now wants to see the world and experience it as well are. Especially with watching her siblings, she is constantly wanting to keep up with them. Facing her forward has become a way better option for us.

The highlight of the 360 Carrier is the option of wearing your baby forward facing, as well as front inward, back, and  hip  for the ultimate in flexibility. The Ergobaby 360 Carrier’s  innovative  design  features a structured  bucket  seat to support the baby in a seated position and maintain ideal hip and spine positioning. The revolutionary carrier seat is designed with an adjustable width to ensure comfort for baby and healthy hip positioning in all four carry positions.

The carrier also features a convertible back  support and adjustable hood same as the original, as well as a newly  designed  waistband  that  is  comfortable  for  parents  and  designed  to  be  worn  in  variable  positions  on  the  waist  to  ensure  that  baby  is  always at the perfect height. And let me tell you Gemma is no lightweight and I can wear her all day in my Ergobaby. The day after the event, we headed to the Met’s game and it was no problem carrying her all day. She loved the game from her new perspective! Thank you Ergo!

Ergo baby  360  Carrier  comes in  black  and  grey colors  and is available  at  www.ergobaby.com

 

Cooking With The Facts

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the Facts Up Front program.

Eating foods that are natural have always been important to me, and even more so now that I am a parent. I enjoy cooking for my children and want them to have only the most wholesome foods out there. Trying to always keep their meals exciting with different varieties, I am always looking for new recipes to change things up. Whenever possible, I try to get them involved in the dinner planning process by helping out that way they are proud of what they cooked.

Although, I was never a label reader until having kids, and have to say sometimes it’s really hard to do so. I’m usually with all three while doing our big shop and sometimes just need to get things done before any meltdowns occur. In fact, the other day I tried to change things up by purchasing a different type of yogurt, and once I got home was finally able to read the label, and realized this was definitely not for us. Facts Up Front is a resource I just discovered that helps consumers make informed choices by putting key information from the Nutrition Fact Panel on the front of the package.

Facts Up Front provides educational tools and resources to help consumers increase their nutrition knowledge, understand their individual nutrient needs and put this information to use when shopping. The website has helped me learn more about the label, how to read it, and how to build a healthful diet. The Facts Up Front label is prevalent in grocery stores and is perfect for moms like me who are always on the go. The number of products carrying the Facts Up Front label in the marketplace continues to grow as companies work through their different production and distribution schedules. So far, more than 50 manufacturers, retailers and wholesalers are voluntarily implementing Facts Up Front on their branded and private label products.

My favorite resource from Facts Up Front is their recipes tab. The recipes offer ideas for easy, delicious dishes made with products bearing the Facts Up Front label. There are also sections for vegetarians, gluten-free diets, and quick and easy recipes that the family will enjoy. I found this one for “overnight oatmeal“. Simply cook this overnight and enjoy in the morning. It is perfect for our busy mornings getting the kids off to school.
