I would like to get a carrier for DD2 (4weeks old). I really like the look of the Ergo, but I have never used a carrier before so really have no idea what to look for.
Have you got an Ergo? Pros and cons?
Or can you recommend something else?
Would like for both DH and I to be able to use it.

Best baby carrier. Ergo? Or something else?

As a newborn dd loved a sleepy wrap (hugabub) it got too hot very quickly for her to use it though. I've borrowed an ergo off a friend and I cannot fault it, its fantastic. You'll need the insert for your daughter until she's bigger but overall it is a great carrier. I also have a Bjorn and apart from being better for dd the ergo is SO much more comfortable for me to wear.

Thanks. Which Ergo did you use? I had a look on their website and there is about 5 or 6 different types. No idea what the differences are.

Just the original one I don't know what the differences are either but this one is perfect. Nice padded shoulders, zip pocket on the front big enough to fit a nappy, travel wipes and spare outfit, a hooded bit that studs on to the shoulder straps for sun protection.

I love my ergo. I had an original 5 years ago and the only drawback was it was inclined to be hot in summer. So with DS (now 11 months) I bought the performance ergo and I use it every day. We went for a bushwalk and tried him on my back for the first time 2 weeks ago and he loved it.

Excellent. Was looking at the performance, mainly for the heat factor. DH tends to get hot easily so thought he might struggle with using the carrier during the warmer months.

I have the original and have used it almost every day for the past 9 months. Other friends have Tula carriers which are very similar.

I have the original ergo. Love it. I used it in the summer on the gold coast. My dd loves it. Can't wait to use it as in back carry.
I have a newborn insert I'm not using I'd be happy to post to you if you buy an ergo. I'm not using it.

I have an ergo. I haven't tried other structured carriers so can't compare, but in saying that I haven't needed to as I have loved the ergo.
I have an original. Very easy to use. I still carry my 2 year old in it comfortably. The infant insert can get hot though. So not great in summer.
