It be used with your newborn meeting the minimum weight and height requirements, in the front carry position facing you. Your newborn baby must weigh 7 lbs minimum (3.2 kg) and be at least 20 inches tall (50.8 cm).


The Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier has been specifically designed so you can carry your newborn baby (minimum 7 lbs / 3.2 kg) without the need of an infant insert. Easy to use, the Ergobaby Omni 360 carrier's bucket seat gradually adjusts to your growing baby from newborn to toddler (7-45 lbs / 3.2-20 kg) to support your baby in an ergonomic M-shape position at all ages.


So the Ergobaby Omni offers all of this, and there’s huge choice in colours and types; but how do they differ?


Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh


The Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh carrier is a lightweight, full mesh carrier designed to maximise ventilation to keep baby and parent cooler. It also has easy one-handed slider adjustments (instead of buttons) to narrow the seat when baby is facing out. This new adjustment makes it even easier to switch baby from facing in to facing out while on the go.


Omni Dream Cotton


The Ergobaby Omni Dream is made with a brushed cotton fabric - softer than ever before with 100% SoftTouch™ cotton fabric. Gentle yet still durable, it provides a soft and cozy feel to wearer and baby.


Both the Cool Air Mesh designs and the Dream Cotton are machine washable and suitable from newborn to toddler. All you have to do is choose your design!
