Ergo and Petunia Pickle Bottom make babywearing oh so pretty
My first Ergo was a lot like my first boyfriend. Solid, comfortable, and dependable, if a little thick. But not pretty. Not swoon-worthy.
Then Petunia Pickle Bottom got involved. In a babywearing version of She's All That (or Can't Buy Me Love, or Clueless--you get the picture) The Ergo got an extreme makeover, and now it's one of the prettiest baby carriers on the block.

For along time, the main complaint of Ergo carriers was that they weren't stylish. Well, the new collection of Petunia Picklebottom Ergo buckle baby carriers
includes three gorgeous prints in soft organic cotton, and the combination of beauty and function is enough to make a
girl fall right back in love with babywearing.
Let me tell you, these carries are gorgeous in person. The
quality construction, safety, flexibility, and ergonomic comfort for you
and baby are all there in classic Ergo design. But the PPB fabric is
beautiful and soft, especially the part that touches the baby. It's
still a thicker carrier, as compared to a Beco or Freehand, but it's
extremely comfortable for front or back carries, with padding in all the
It's styled to fit adults from 5' to 6'6" tall of all
shapes and sizes, and can carry babies from 12 pounds to 45 pounds (and
even younger with the infant insert, sold separately). My 35-pound
toddler, Mr. I-Do-It-MYSELF, was overjoyed to snuggle up and ride around
the house just like our halcyon days of babywearing because it was, and
I quote, "Pitty."
I imagine that when we walked downstairs, a slow-motion spotlight descended on us, and Kiss Me started playing, and then we went to prom. Or, you know, the kitchen. I love you, Organic Ergo.~Delilah
