What is the weight limit on the Ergobaby Wrap?
The Ergobaby Wrap has been tested to carry babies up to 14 kg. When your baby is newborn, start wearing him/her on your front and as he/she gets heavier and develops upper body strength you can enjoy wearing him/her on your hip and back. The innovative 4D Stretch fabric offers greater support than typical wraps and therefore allows you to carry older babies more comfortably for longer. We recommend graduating to the Ergobaby Carrier when your baby is around 6 months old as it provides more structure and has a higher weight limit.
