Design and Style.
If you are a hiker or love to take long strolls you will love the Omni 360 baby carrier. It has soo many features and the fabrics and material are some of the best in the market.
Suitable from week 1 up to 20kg which is around 4 years. It depends upon your toddler. This means right from the beginning you use the Omni 360 if you don’t want to take the stroller out.
Omni 360 carrier had many fabrics to keep baby warm during winter and to keep your baby secure and safe, which makes it a bit stuffed but it has ventilation and is lightweight according to manufacturers.
Weighing 1 kg and the dimensions don’t take that much space.
An ergonomic position with all 4 positions. It has the so-called M position which is a good position for your baby’s spine and hips.
Going into the 4 positions in detail down below. So-called lumbar support to help your back when you are carrying your baby.
Omni 360 also can be used for breastfeeding. It’s a good feature for those parents who love breastfeeding. Protection for your baby and toddler has been installed and it’s the UPF50+ hood.
It also has crossable straps to make things easier.
It comes in many colours which are: Chambray, Oxford Gray, Khaki Green, Midnight Blue, Pearl Grey, Onyx Black, Carbon Grey, Indigi Weave, Classic Weave, Natural Weave and Black Tweed.
As you can see there are many colours, many of these matches many strollers. A detachable pouch comes with the baby carrier.
This can be used for your baby’s things and even yours. For cleaning, you can use a washing machine or wipe it.
Omni 360 4 Positions.
You have the front carry – parent facing which is for newborns up to your baby grows out of it. The second would be the front carry-facing out. It is used from 5 months+
The third would be from 6 months+ which is the hip carry. The fourth is the back carry which is also from 6 months+.
You have different straps that need to be adjusted for these positions and Ergobaby has videos showing how all of these are used. View these videos with the purchase links.
Ergobaby Omni 360 have 264 reviews by parents and many of these are high scores, which shows you the Omni 360 is good.
Omni 360 comes all organised which means you only need to take it out and adjust it depending upon what you will use. So, this is a positive thing, because some carriers come with all parts detached.
- It is made for breastfeeding mums, but according to one mum, it’s not easy to use it and breastfeed. The position is a bit difficult and on your own, it’s harder. This can be an individual thing, but it might affect you as well.
- Another parent also reported that it can be a bit hard to adjust the straps when a child is an own board. You will need help from another partner.
- Omni 360 is quite expensive because the cheapest ones are around 50 pounds. Not that affordable by many.
- Not available in all colours. Most dark colours.
- Thick fabrics can cause warmth during summer.
Omni 360 vs 360.
The 360 baby carrier was the model that was made before the Omni 360. Comparing the two there are not that many differences.
The design and style are a bit different. Omni 360 has wider and thicker shoulder fabrics and the fabrics, in general, are thinner.
360 does not have a detachable pouch and the Omni 360 also has more parts on the carrier. The colours are a few with the 360. It has Carbon Grey, Onyx Black, Pearl Grey, Pure Black, Chambray and Star Dust.
360 baby carrier was not suitable for babies, so you have to insert a newborn infant insert in it to use it. Which is from 0 to 4 months. (3.2 – 5.5kg)
Of course, the price is different as well. 360 cost about 116 pounds, which is still expensive compare to some baby carriers.
The improvement makes life easier, but there are not many differences. Omni 360 is of course better but the detachable pouch makes it more expensive.
It’s just tiny changes, so the Ergobaby 360 is still good.
Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier is a good carrier that would be suitable for many lifestyles, especially for those people who love long strolls and hiking.
It’s a bit pricey, but the Omni 360 has many features and accessories to help you and your little one. It can be used and carry not only your baby but also personal things.
Your baby is nearer to you and you have access to breastfeeding, you can use different positions to have your baby near and it’s suitable from birth up to 4 years.
Some carriers do not have all of these benefits, so the Ergobaby Omni 360 it’s worth the price it has according to many parents.
It also has many positive reviews, which is a positive sign.
What are your thoughts? Do you think the Omn 360 is the carrier you are looking for?
