Ergobaby Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh vs All-Cotton

 

Summer is quickly approaching, which means hot weather is on its way! If you're like me, then you're definitely looking for ways to keep cool during the summer months.

One option is to use an Ergobaby Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh carrier. This carrier has a mesh fabric that allows air to flow through, keeping you and your baby cool. It also has a built-in sunshade that provides shade from the sun. The Omni 360 Cool Air Mesh carrier can be used in four different carrying positions, so it's perfect for anyone. Here we'll look at the differences between the Cool Air Mesh and the All-Cotton designs.

 

The Omni 360 is Ergobaby’s all-around carrier that has all the features you need (after all, 'omni' means 'all'). As we have seen, it works for newborn to toddler, it has all the carrying positions you need, and comes with premium features and award-winning designs. All of this equals a huge amount of choice!

 

The Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier offers all carry positions, and can be used in the front carry position facing you or facing out, as well as hip and back carry positions.

 

One question I'm most often asked is ‘What’s the difference between the Cool Air Mesh and the Cotton Omni?’

In order to answer that, we'll need to first look at the similarities between all the Omni models, so that we can narrow down the differences specifically.

What are the Different Types of Ergobaby Omni 360 Available?

  • Dream - made from 100% ultra-soft cotton.
  • Cool Air Mesh - made with mesh-type fabric for targeted airflow.
  • Breeze - the most breathable Omni option.
  • Classic - the original cotton option.

The Ergobaby Omni 360 baby carrier offers all carry positions, and can be used in the front carry position facing you or facing out, as well as hip and back carry positions. Please refer to the specific requirements for use and instructions for each carry position.

It can 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 Breeze is the coolest option in terms of temperature regulation and keeping you both cool as a cucumber even in the warmest weather.

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 type; but how do they differ?

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.

The Omni 360 classic cotton is newborn ready and can carry a newborn starting at 7 lbs. The Omni 360 also has the strap buckles in the front, making it possible to wear it with crossable shoulder straps and is easy to put on and take off. In addition, it comes with a removable accessory pouch pocket which can be worn in various positions on the carrier.

Summing Up

The Ergobaby Omni 360 Breeze is the coolest option in terms of temperature regulation and keeping you both cool as a cucumber even in the warmest weather.

The Ergobaby Omni 360 Dream is the softest carrier - the cotton is dreamy soft and just perfect for carrying your baby in both the parent facing and world-facing option.

Both the Omni 360 Breeze designs and the Omni 360 Dream Cotton are machine washable and suitable from newborn to toddler.

All you have to do is choose your design!
