Question: Can I use the Embrace carrier with my newborn baby?
A: Yes, the Embrace carrier was designed for the newborn phase. Babies must meet the minimum 20 inches/50.8 cm height and 7 lbs./3.2 kg weight.
The Embrace carrier adjusts to your newborn baby when the waist belt is folded in twice in the Newborn Mode (Facing In position) by shortening the back panel and narrowing the seat width.
Question: How do I wear the Embrace carrier waist belt?
A: The waist belt should be secured high and tight on the wearer's body. In the Newborn mode - Facing In, the waist belt should be folded inwards twice. In the other modes, the waist belt will be secured without any folding high along your torso and hang down like an apron. As reference, the product labels along the waist belt should always be on the inside and the waist belt buckle should always be facing out. We recommend browsing and watching the instruction videos for step by step instructions.
Question: How should the shoulder straps be worn?
A: Always cross the shoulder straps with the Embrace baby carrier. In the Newborn mode - Facing In, spread the straps at the shoulders for additional head and neck support. In the Baby Mode (Facing In), spreading the straps at the shoulder is optional. When wearing baby in the Baby Mode - Facing Out position, do not spread the straps across your shoulder.
Question: How does the Embrace differ from the other Ergobaby soft structured carriers like the OMNI 360?
A: The Embrace baby carrier is a more lightweight, slimmer, cozy option for carrying babies from birth up to 25 lbs./11.3 kg. Many of the other Ergobaby carrier models are more structured, with increased padding in the shoulder straps, a wider waistbelt with lumbar support, and can carry baby up to a higher weight limit (up to 45 lbs./20.4 kg). These design features make them more suitable for comfortable babywearing as baby grows or for increased activity. Additionally, the other Ergobaby structured carriers also allow for more versatility in carry positions (hip, back) and features (hood, pockets).
Question: What kind of fabric is the Embrace carrier made of and how does it differ from the other Ergobaby soft structured carriers?
A: The Embrace baby carrier is made of a slightly stretchy, yet supportive, lightweight knit fabric from 79% Polyester/17% Rayon/4% Elastane/Spandex. Other Ergobaby carriers (e.g. 360 and Omni 360) are made from a woven cotton fabric.
