Having two kids in the city can have it’s challenges, especially when it comes to getting places. It can be extremely difficult to get on a bus or a train with a stroller and two kids. So much so that I did it once and will never do it again. Knowing that I still have to be able to hold Avery, hold Harlan’s hand, and still carry my bags always makes the bus or subway trip a little less appealing. Thankfully our Ergobaby Carrier has come to the rescue on many many occasions. It is my go to method of holding Avery on any sort of public transportation system here in Manhattan. It frees up my hands and makes everything so much more relaxed and enjoyable for me and the girls.

This is the cure for the witching hour.

It is also very daddy friendly! MacKay uses the Ergo all the time when he has to take the girls to work with him (he has a daycare in his office) on the bus.

  1. I’m like you with a toddler and (hopefully) an infant (we are TTC right now). I would wear it everywhere. Thanks for the giveaway.

  2. I’ve heard a lot of great things about the Ergos. I would certainly where mine everywhere. When we have baby three in a year or two we will definitely need a carrier on trips to mall to make sure we can keep up with all three kiddies.

  7. I will wear it up and down the stairs to subways in the city and all over town when I need to be hands free schlepping kids and groceries!

  8. I would use it every day! I have 3 other kids, aside from the baby, which means lots of time on my feet, at the park, up and down the stairs at the apartment, at the other kids’ activities… shopping… at the farmer’s market… all the time!

  9. Everywhere! I love babywearing, if my Baby Bear isn’t walking I’m carrying her somehow or another. I just want an ergo so bad because they’re so dang comfortable! 🙂

  15. To the mall for some easy navigating while shopping, to the Christmas tree farm, zoo lights, and pretty much everywhere else!

  16. I will wear my baby to the store to grocery shop, around the house and when when i go places with my other four kids.

  17. We are expecting our second little one so it would be great to wear all the time around the house to keep up with the oldest.

  18. initially around the block – but as I get out (due on the 27th!) hopefully everywhere I go he/she and the Ergo will go!

  19. I’d hope to wear it at home and out! I’m expecting my first (and second!) in just a few weeks now and being able to wear them is something I really want to do. Bonus points that I think the Husband would be willing to wear this over a Moby since he doesn’t seem too convinced on that 🙂

  20. I have been using my same Ergo for the last 8 years. Now pregnant with my 6th baby I would LOVE a new one. I wear my Ergo everywhere I go!!!
