The Ergobaby Aerloom breaks with (almost) all traditions of typical baby carriers: New sustainable material, perfect fit made from almost "one cast", not bulky, breathable, modern urban style and at the same time light as a feather – bringing a new level of freedom of movement, comfort and safety. Made from FormaKnit, the carrier is manufactured almost in one piece on state-of-the-art knitting machines. Ergobaby is the first manufacturer to use this technology to produce a baby carrier. This technology enables the seamless incorporation of functional zones in the back panel of the carrier: especially breathable, or especially stretchy, or especially supportive etc.
Designed to grow with your baby and suitable for carrying newborns weighing 3.2 kg up to toddlers weighing 15.9 kg. The (one-time) adjustment of the carrier to newborn mode is another innovation in the Ergobaby carrying range (see video below).
Carrying your baby with the Aerloom means that you can enjoy the closeness to your child and still have your hands free. Aerloom offers three ergonomic carrying positions depending on the baby's stage of development, needs and preferences: Front carry / Front carry forward facing (from approx. 5 months) / Back carry (from approx. 6 months). We at Earthmother recommend that you only forward face your baby for short periods of time (10 to 15 minutes) so that they aren't overwhelmed/overstimulated.
The innovative combination of the ultra-light breathable FormaKnit material and the ergonomically perfectly designed fit supports the baby in a stable, secure and developmentally appropriate way when carrying in the natural tuck-and-spread position of the hips, legs and back. The carrier also fits like a glove, because the slightly curved shoulder straps adapt flexibly to the shape of the body – whether petite or tall, whether carried on the stomach or back. The lumbar support on the waist belt provides extra carrying comfort – your back will be pleased. As with all Ergobaby carriers, breastfeeding is also possible.
The inner lining on the waist belt and back panel is made of cosy cotton (Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified), which is particularly gentle on baby's skin.
The shoulder straps are considerably less voluminous than on other baby carriers and still ensure a comfortable weight distribution. Since they are hardly bulky, the Aerloom can also be worn comfortably under a jacket (a plus in the colder seasons).
The FormaKnitTM material consists of 87%* recycled polyester yarn (certified according to Global Recycled Standard). This means that approx. 26 plastic water bottles including lids* are reborn as baby carriers. Other components of the carrier such as buckles and sliders are Bluesign® certified, i.e. produced in a water- and energy-saving way and with low air emissions.
