Ergobaby Embrace is the ideal carrier for newborns

Keep your newborn baby close and supported with the Ergobaby Embrace Baby Carrier. Super soft, cozy and comfortable, the Embrace emphasises closeness and bonding over the first year. With no complicated wrapping or tying, this simple style is ideal for short, regular babywearing sessions during the first 12 months.


Choose Ergobaby carriers in soft air mesh for a breathable option
