The Peanut Shell baby sling cradles and comforts your baby. They are made of a variety of fabrics with stylish and thoughtful details and just the right amount of flirt that go with your style. This video takes you through Peanut Shell Baby Sling Safety, Sizing and Tips. How to know if you have the right size in the baby sling? Need some tips? How to breastfeed in the sling, and safety.
This instructional video shows you how you can use the Peanut Shell sling to carry your baby in either the hip or back position. The Hip and Back carry positions can be used as your baby grows and moves into the toddler months.
HIP TIP: When picking up baby be sure that the curved seam (where the pocket is) is centered on your baby’s back. Baby’s knees MUST be above their bum for a comfortable carry.
BACK TIP: This is a quick carry and is not intended to be used for great lengths of time. Please keep in mind, your baby may be out of sight while using this position. PLEASE use extra caution. Be aware of baby’s arms and actions at all times.
In this video you can learn how to do the Peanut Shell ”Cradle Carry” position. This position is recommended for carrying your newborn and is fondly called the Sleeping Peanut carry by the creators of the Peanut Shell Sling.
18 days in the heart of Manila, a 17 month old toddler and 16 weeks pregnant. The ERGO saved my life!
My Filipino mother booked tickets for a family trip home before I discovered I was pregnant for the second time, and my partner had to stay behind for work commitments. From past visits, we knew a stroller was not going to work in the hustle and bustle of the city, so I pulled out our ERGObaby carrier. My parents, my two sisters and their partners all found the carrier to be well-fitting and comfortable while carrying my 18kg son Ashton, even as he had to be carried in the front position for safety.
My family and extended family at the Manila Ocean Park. My father is wearing Ashton.
Through the mass swine flu epidemic, the stifling heat and humidity, ongoing bouts of traveller’s diarrhoea and the crowds of strangers we drew for having fairer skin, we each carried Ashton in the ERGO no matter how short or long our trip was. We all fell ill at some point, I was constantly fighting off strangers’ attempts to touch my son and we were without the security of seatbelts among other luxuries we’re accustomed to. Ashton slept soundly in the ERGO and loved being close to someone when he was sick, and I was reassured in knowing he was safe and snug with somebody who carried him just as comfortably.

While my family and I have now learnt our lesson about going overseas during a sickness pandemic, the next trip back is definitely quite some time away but I have no doubt in my mind that our ERGObaby carrier will be the first thing I pack in my carryon luggage. My second child is due in three weeks now and I can’t wait to use the carrier with her!
We recently took the ERGObaby carrier overseas with us for 3 weeks (to Vietnam and Cambodia) as it was the only means of transporting Stella about in and it was fabulous. At 15 months, Stella is 10kg but I was very comfy with her in this, and she was too, half the time she was asleep! Which is perfect as then I could enjoy the things we were looking at like the Angkor Wat temples and hiking around the ethnic minority mountain villages near Sapa. I preferred to wear Stella on my front, but for longer walks, on the back is better. My longest walk was a pretty continuous 5 hour hike gradual uphill walk – I was exhausted but physically comfortable. The other advantage is that because there is no steel frame in the Ergo, it can be tucked under a seat or table when you’re not actually wearing it, so its not a pain to have around when you’re not using it and out and about.
We recently went on holiday to Kalbarri with our 11 month old girl Lily.
The ERGObaby carrier was perfect for her to get around as we were often on off road ground. We spent lots of time walking on the beach, rocks and bush tracks. Lily absoultely loves her ERGO carrier. When she sees us putting it on she squeals in delight and trys to climb up our legs to get into it.
If she was a little tired, she would be asleep within 5 minutes of being in it.
It is so comfortable to wear, and I have a bad back, but I can easily, and comfortably carry her in this carrier.
We love it, we couldn’t live without it.
Thankyou for the helpful info you sent with it, and the fast delivery. I will definately be telling my new parent friends about Babes in Arms.
The ERGObaby carrier has been a huge hit! We absolutely love it – its so comfortable as my little one is a big baby and he feels light as a feather in the Ergo; plus we can also use it to carry our 2 year old on our back. My little boy is so snug, he falls asleep as soon as the hood is placed over his head (the hood is a wonderful addition, as I have used lots of slings, and they have all lacked this!). I also have many friends who are expecting their second baby who are also keen to purchase (I should be on commission!) after seeing how much I love this carrier.
I don’t have any photos at the moment but we are heading on holidays with babies and ERGO shortly so will email some to you then.
We now have two ERGOs, after putting off getting one for ages with our first, now 2 ¾, we bought one when she was 18 months and loved it so much, especially when traveling interstate. Now that I have a new baby, now 3 months, I find I am using my ERGO everyday (he’s MUCH heavier than my daughter was at this age!) because it is simply the most comfortable supportive baby carrier for both of us. My daughter still loves going in the ERGO and so we decided to get a second one so that my husband and I can carry both of our children when we are out and about, and for our upcoming holiday. It will also help for when one needs washing! I have pouches, wraparound slings and I once used a framed backpack carrier, and ERGO beats them all for design. I have had some stitching come undone on the front pocket (not structural), and I haven’t been very impressed with the ERGO backpack – I use it as my everyday carry bag and it’s hard to find things in it, the zips and Velcro are failing, and I don’t attach it to the ERGO anymore because the toggles always come loose (even when new). But really, I know lots of people who think the ERGO is too expensive, but have without a second thought spent two or three times this amount on a pram. Now with two ERGOs and a lightweight stroller, we’re still in front on spending (and we hardly ever use the stroller). Many people commented on my daughter’s early control of her neck and head, and good strength and balance. She was walking at one. She also sleeps well despite noise and light and has a very strong attachment to both of us. My mum often carries my little son in a sling and this is helping them to bond beautifully also. So thanks!
