I got a used Ergo when my son turned 6 months (28" & 20lbs), because not every mom or baby loves their Ergo and I didn't want to spend a lot of money. However, I love mine and I take it everywhere. My husband uses a different, front-facing carrier because the Ergo just doesn't fit his 6'2" frame well. When I carry my son around, I like to use my Ergo as a side/hip carrier. I'm 5'2" and I have a large chest, but even with the front-hold, my 7 month old son fits easily without getting "smushed". I look forward to using the back-hold with the Ergo when my son is older. I would not have used this carrier when he was smaller, because it is a big carrier and I did enjoy letting my son face out once he could hold his head up.
After hearing lots of rave reviews, I was really excited to try this carrier. I get that it holds babies in an ergonomic position that is good for their backs and hips, and it is also very comfortable for the wearer. But when worn front-carrying, baby is smooshed into your chest and the straps are close to their face, leaving them unable to look around- my daughter never grew to like it, even after multiple attempts at getting her used to it, and as a large-breasted woman, I always felt like she was going to smother. I do occasionally like to use it as a back carrier though, which is why I kept it- but try as I might, I can't seem to get her into it without help in the back-carry position. Overall, I could take this carrier or leave it, since I need to have another carrier for front-carrying anyway.
