Manduca vs. Ergo
17-06-2012 07:49 #2
I had an ergo with my first baby, and sold it for a Scootababy. I thought it was too big for my frame and didn't adjust comfortably. This time I borrowed an Ergo Sport, and found it too floppy to easily put her on my back, but comfy. So I gave that back and bought a manduca and I love it. It's highly adjustable, comes with the infant seat already in it, and I find it very easy to get her onto my back. I still use the scootababy a lot too, but she naps in the manduca every day.

Oh I love my manduca! I used to use the ergo, but found the manduca much more comfortable. I love the extended back, I have a 17 months old and still wear him a lot - it supports his back and I even can breastfeed him discretely in it
The manduca is more adjustable than the ergo but once you learn how to adjust it to you, it's SO comfortable!
Are you planning to use it with a new born? ( it has built in insert which I haven't used just tried with my friend's baby and it was great! )
hope that helps

Haven't tried the Ergo (or the Manduca yet!) but did end up buying the Manduca after quite a bit of research.
What tipped me towards the Manduca (apart from 99% of reviews saying it's super comfy) is that the Manduca comes with the infant insert inbuilt whereas the Ergo you have to purchase that separately & I've heard the Ergo can be quite hot for you and bubs in the summer with the insert in.

I can only comment on the Ergo, but I just love mine. I can't think of anything I would change.

I've tried both and I prefer my ergo performance. I find it much more comfortable, but honestly everyone is different. The best thing you can do is try both on. Also keep in mind that there are three distinctly different styles of the ERGObaby carrier so it's difficult to compare ergo in general to the Manduca. My favorite part about the ergo insert is that if bub falls asleep in it you can transfer them easily keeping the insert around them. Also it's the only SSC that doesn't require bub's legs to spread open with a fabric panel between them.

OP did you end up getting a carrier?
I tried the Manduca when my DD was newborn and disliked the insert a lot.
You cannot quickly get the baby in from standing up (like at the shops or out of the car) and its really fiddly - I got frustrated more than once when out as I really had to position her up high to get her in properly. The fabric insert isn't that great in support nor comfort - DD had red marks on her legs from fabric and she tilted a lot as there's no head support. I went back to using my Ergo insert after 2 weeks - I got the new Performance insert so no issues with a summer babe.
