Ergobaby // giveaway
by Ashley Weeks Cart
A few weeks back I shared my favorite snaps from my first job with Ergobaby. It was a treat to work with a brand that I love (that my own family has been using and loving for years) that is so well known and respected (especially in the parenting world). And extra fun to team up with some local families. The icing on the cake happened earlier this week when I headed over to Facebook and the top post in my feed was this. It’s one thing to give them my photos, it’s another thing entirely to see them in action. And gosh, how cute are Brie and G? Such an amazing pair those two!
Anyway, in that vein, Ergobaby sent me one of the new carriers in their Designer Collection. The ‘Umba’ patterned carrier was designed by Christy Turlington to benefit Every Mother Counts, an organization I’ve been following slash supporting for years a. because of the great work their doing on behalf of women, mothers, babies in the world of maternal care and childbirth and b. because James’ cousin worked hand in hand with Christy to produce the film “No Woman, No Cry.” It was a perfect fit to test drive this beautiful new design.
One of Courtland’s favorite activities is riding happily in our Ergo aboard James’ back for snowy winter hikes with the dogs. This weekend we swapped in the new carrier, and while Courtland was a patterned-explosion with an animal identity crisis (note the monkey hat paired with the leopard snow suit), James’ winter jacket was a great compliment to the carrier. Personally, I always opt for patterned items for life with young kids as they more easily disguise mess, spills, drips, etc. Much like our collection of Oriental rugs (thanks, Momar!), this carrier’s pattern fits the Kid Mess Camouflage bill. I love the cool blue paired with the rich chocolate and warm orange. An unexpected yet awesome combo.
And I just adore that leather strap around the waist band. Such a lovely touch of quality.
We’re passing this carrier off to Sunny’s FGPs who are expecting their first little one this summer. But you can win your family a brand-spanking new ‘Umba’ patterned carrier thanks to Ergobaby. To enter:
