A day in Brooklyn

The other day, we spent a sunny morning in Dumbo. Toby and I walked by the river, while Anton rode in our trusty carrier. We were trying out Ergo's new Four Position 360 Baby Carrier, which is awesome because you can wear your baby in four different positions. Here are a few photos (and a giveaway), if you'd like to see...
As always, here are a few photos of Toby dancing. The kid cannot be stopped!

And now the Ergo: We've used Ergo baby carriers for the past four years. They are the best—they're so easy and comfortable, even for long walks. (Your baby feels so light!) And it's so nice to have your hands free and your baby close for kisses, squeezes and foot massages. I wholeheartedly recommend them.
Toby and I tried skipping rocks in the East River, but neither of us could figure out how. (Any tips?! We need to look up a YouTube video:)
Then we went to get lunch since Toby suddenly started having hunger panic. I turned Anton around in the 360, so he could gaze at the food trucks.
Toby was apparently wearing the Brooklyn uniform.
We picked out a Vietnamese rice dish, and Toby paid! It was a great knock-around morning.
The Four Position 360 Baby Carrier was fantastic and comfy, and you can wear your baby in four different positions: facing in, facing out, on your hip or on your back. It officially comes out on April 17th, but Ergo is giving away a carrier to a Cup of Jo reader today. For a chance to win, please visit Ergo's online shop and leave a comment below. A winner will be chosen at random tomorrow. Good luck and thanks so much! Update: the winner has been emailed. Thanks so much for playing!

SFMallyGirl said...

The 360 was available on Amazon for a second (maybe on accident?) and I snatched one up! They're gone now, but I've had it for 2 weeks and I LOVE it! My LO loves to front face, which we were doing in the Baby Ktan, but at 6 months I was needing more back support. She also naps in the 360, which is the best! Highly highly recommend.

Angela said...

Love your vignettes of family city living! Food truck outings and a good baby carrier are essentials! :)

Jenny N said...

Would love to win! :)

Anna said...

Looks like a perfect day!
I'm so glad Ergo is making this one - - Ergo is by far the most comfortable carrier I've tried, but my son prefers facing out, so this is indeed a great invention.

meredith said...

I love that my baby can face out in this carrier!

Michelle said...

Wow, a SSC that does front carries! And I had no idea they had wraps.

emily kathryn said...

I would LOVE to win this! I love my Ergo Baby Wrap but know that once my Nella's a little bigger a front carry would be AMAZING!

Karelys Beltran Davis said...

If I don't randomly get chosen I'll so buy this! I am having the second child in Sept this year and I can't wait to actually have a good carrier. I had a bad one with my first one and ouch (for EVERYONE).

Christine Wallace said...

We got an Ergo as a gift when I had my baby girl two months ago and I wish I had known this was coming out! My husband really wants to wear her facing outward (just like in The Hangover, ha!), but most carriers that face out don't support them well enough. This looks awesome! I wonder how I can justify buying another...

rebecca said...

Ooooh! I'm due in June and still looking for the perfect carrier. Great pictures!

tina said...

I am expecting my first in October. I would love to use an Ergo to explore the city with my new babe.

What a fun day!

nina | itsazooatthezoo.blogspot.com said...

Super give away and great design!

Okay, skipping rocks.....choose only flat rocks, throw from your side and throw low. If you're right handed, pivot your body to the right and throw close to the water. The most important consideration is the type of rock, flat and wide is best.

Great photos of you and the boys! Gotta get a pair of those Bensimon sneakers!

elizabeth said...

Oh my goodness!! I have been on the lookout for a new carrier but money is a bit tight so this giveaway is such a blessing!! Thank you! Elizabethcheri (at) gmail(dot) com

martini said...

The new Ergobaby looks great! As for the rock skipping, you have to find a round, flat rock -- the thinner, the better, and really snap it when you throw it so that it has a lot of spin (and, of course, you want the flat face of the rock parallel to the water surface, or it'll just go *kerplunk*)!

auntie-in-training said...

This would be so wonderful to have. Sign me up!

Anna Grace said...

We have the ergo sport and love it but would love a front carry option!

This is awesome! I have a 6 month old and I know she would love riding around in this carrier :)

Also, is it weird to stop on the street all over and have photos taken of you? I always wonder about that ;)

Robyn said...

My little guy loves looking out at the world, so this would be great! And with piles of snow still around a stroller isn't an option for another couple months. Fingers crossed.

I already loved my old Ergo but this is a welcome innovation. Thank you!

Love our Ergo too. Very interested in the new facing out option as I guess looking at Mom's chest all day gets pretty boring!

Evelyn L said...

Ah this is so fantastic! I LOVE Ergo, but am frustrated that the older models don't give the option of facing forward for the baby...come 5 months all my son wanted to do was look out. His poor neck muscles!

Glad to see NYC is getting some sweet sunshine, finally:)
