The babies in our family all use the Baby Trekker (BabyTrekker) baby sling carrier. Some of our friends use a really good carrier called the Ergo baby carrier. I thought it would be interesting to compare the two beds.

Baby Trekker (BabyTrekker) baby sling carrier

  • Can baby face inward?: Yes
  • Can baby face outward?: Yes
  • Is there a backpack position?: Yes, and baby can face inwards or outwards in this position.
  • Padding for the buckles: There is padding under every buckle for comfort.
  • Easy nursing: There is a nursing position that works wonderfully. Babies can be put into position with a minimum of fuss.
  • Is there support for the head?: Yes
  • Wide straps for comfort: Yes
  • Front pocket: Has an extra front pocket which can be used for storage when baby is in carrier. The pocket can be turned inside out and can hold the carrier when not being used.
  • Number of positions: 5 positions - Back position facing inward, back position facing outward, front position facing inward, front position facing outward, nursing position.
  • Affordability: Can be purchased at an on line retailer for $99.95.

Ergo baby sling carrier

  • Can baby face inward?: Yes
  • Can baby face outward?: No
  • Is there a backpack position?: Yes, baby can face inward only.
  • Padding for the buckles: There is no padding under the buckles.
  • Easy nursing: You can nurse with the Ergo. It's a bit more complicated since you need to loosen the shoulder straps so that your baby is sitting lower. With an older baby you will have to pull your breast up to their mouth level.
  • Is there support for the head?: Yes
  • Wide straps for comfort: Straps are narrower which reduces the comfort.
  • Front pocket: No front pocket.
  • Number of positions: 3 positions - Back position facing inward, front position facing inward, hip position.
  • Affordability: Can be purchased at an on line retailer for $115.

Comparison

  • Baby facing: BabyTrekker faces both in and out. Advantage Baby Trekker.
  • Backpack position: Both have a backpack position but the BabyTrekker allows baby to face both in and out. Advantage Baby Trekker.
  • Comfort: BabyTrekker has padding under the buckles and has wider, more comfortable straps. Advantage Baby Trekker is more comfortable.
  • Easy nursing: It is easier to put the baby into nursing position with the BabyTrekker. Advantage Baby Trekker.
  • Front pocket: BabyTrekker has a front pocket for storage when carrying baby and can be used to store the carrier when not in use. Advantage Baby Trekker since Ergo does not have a front pocket.
  • Number of positions: BabyTrekker has 5 and Ergo has 3. Advantage Baby Trekker.
  • Affordability: BabyTrekker costs less - can be purchased on line for 15% less

Overall advantage goes to BabyTrekker baby sling carrier.

Baby Trekker can be purchased on line at Baby Travel Planet for under $100. Several on line retailers sell the Ergo for $115.
