ERGO’s New Infant Insert Took Feedback 2Heart

Posted on: May 27, 2010


This just in from ERGObaby, makers of the ever-popular Ergo Baby Carrier: a new/improved Infant Insert called “Heart2Heart.”

The original insert (c. 2004) was not unlike a small comforter you’d tuck your infant into taco-style, and then carefully bundle into the carrier at a precarious angle (“the cradle position”).  It always felt like an after-thought, and something of a rip-off at almost $40.  (We even razzed it in our GearGuide.)

The new design is the result of contributions from research studies, customer feedback, chiropractic support and working directly with newborns.  Heart2Heart keeps the comfy padding of the original, but gives parents confidence with a more defined shape and secure snaps.  ERGO handles the baby origami for you this time, removing a big barrier to use (if not purchase) with the original.

Heart2Heart is available online and in stores, in both regular cotton poplin ($25) and 100% organic cotton ($38 – recommended).

GaGaGear’s Word To The Wise:  With the new version in circulation, you may see deep discounts on the old insert.  While still technically effective as a newborn carrying device in combination with the Ergo carrier, we didn’t recommend the previous version, and still don’t.  It was cumbersome and too easy to use incorrectly.

is the price the same online and in stores?

Can’t answer that question. Should be about the same, but keep in mind you’ll likely pay additional shipping fees if you don’t find it locally.
