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!

Lovely Traveler said...

Looks like a lovely day! Both the boys are so adorable.

I'm a huge fan of baby-wearing but haven't tried the Ergo yet. Looks like a great carrier!

Bobbie said...

I thought Ergo was so against the idea of the baby facing out... not just the position of the baby, but that it's too overstimulating. I am sure I read all about that on their website before, but I don't see it now. I am really shocked they came out with this version. It should be called the 180...

Danielle Hudson said...

I'm expecting my first baby in about a month and this would be wonderful! Thanks for the review!

Nerissa said...

Love the Ergo! I tell all new parents it is a MUST. I would love to try the new 360 for our upcoming trip to Paris!!

The 360 looks like an awesome carrier. I used the Baby Bjorn with my first, but I would love to use this one with my second as it can be used longer and earlier!

alison said...

I'm expecting our first babe this fall and your baby-product recommendations are gold! This would be so helpful.

Hiro said...

mpierce said...

We are expecting our second boy within a month and LOVED using the Ergo with the first. My only complaint, however, was that our baby could only face inwards. This is a great solution! Thank you for the fabulous giveaway!

Just what me and my 7 month old need. Can't wait for it to launch.

We have the Ergo carrier, and I love it, but my daughter wants to be outward facing now, so I think she would love this. This is a great giveaway!

Jessica Hewson said...

I love that you can face out in an ERGO now. I am currently using the Bjorn for this reason but it is killing my back. I would love to try this.

R + J said...

Must have!
