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!

(Photos by Julia Robbs for Cup of Jo. Thanks, Julia. This post is sponsored by Ergo, a brand our family loves and has used for years.)

Forward facing was my only complaint about my
Old ergo! So glad they fixed it, it's like they combined the ergo with the bjorn.

MB Chang said...

To answer two posts in one:
1) Yay Ergo options! Love my existing one, would like to try an update for the bun in the oven

2) we moved from DUMBO to Northern Virginia to be closer to family and it has been very difficult. These photos make me miss NYC so much! While being closer to family is great, we're away from our friends that feel like family.

Meredith Preston said...

We were Ergo with our first for sure!

jax said...

Our Ergo was a lifesaver with all three of our children so far...now pregnant with our fourth and even though the first carrier is still going strong, I'd love to try this one out! I've never found another carrier as comfortable, but it'd be great to have the option to face the baby forwards. (One of my children was always craning his neck around to try to see what was in front of us.) :)

Veronica said...

I would love to win this for my baby coming this summer!
