    Default Ergo. is my ergo real or fake please help.

    I have had my ergo for years!

    Prob at least 5 maybe up to 7.

    I have just been told its a fake and I just dont believe it.

    I had a look at the websites of ho to spot a fake.

    There are a few things that seem to be different. But the ones im looking at seem to be newer models.

    So the warning lable is where the babies back would be inside the carrier.

    The waist buckle says warrier on the male bit and UTX Flex warrior Pat. All the other buckles say UTX Flex Stealth

    The stitching is really good. The pocket looks fine.

    The badge on the pocket though sales 'The ERGO Baby Carrier' with their trademark patern underneath it.

    My ergo is about 5.5yrs old, I bought it new from a baby shop, so pretty sure not a fake, my buckles say same as you described, but couldn't find warrior on the male end of the big buckle (but in low light, so might be there.
    My warning label is on the waist band though.

    Gosh it makes me look like a fool.

    I just sold it on evay and the person paid then emailed me saying she showed someone and its a fake.

    But i really didnt know.

    I got it in a box and everything so it looked real to me.

    But looking on the net Iv never seen the ergo label say 'the ergo baby carrier'

    Cant believe i have been duped.

    Check out the FB page Babywearing buy swap sell. They will be able to help if you have photos - they also have a file on how to pick a fake.

    I bought a fake once too without knowing. As mentioned Ergo's are the most counterfeited carrier. Chances are if you didn't buy it from a baby shop, or 2nd hand from someone you know bought it from a baby shop, it's probably fake. Unfortunately. Mine was almost flawless. Came in a box with a cd and all.
