Shape Up for Summer: My Babywearing Workout

topcollage

I have a confession to make: I am soooo ready for summer. Even though we live in Arizona where the weather’s nice pretty much all year round, there’s just something about summertime…. And since the kids are out of school (Yay! No more homework!), we get to do stuff we can’t do at other times of the year and enjoy a more relaxed routine. I love it! However, when the kids are home all day, it gets even trickier to get those workouts in. Especially with a little one around. And summer = swimsuit season, which can add a wee bit of extra stress. 😉

So how can you get in a great workout, on limited time, with your baby, and shed those extra pounds STAT so you’re ready for summer sun ‘n fun? Voila! My latest babywearing workout, which is perfect for older babies like Ruby. You can use the same Ergobaby Performance Carrier I raved about before, and besides that, all you need is your favorite little one. Can’t get simpler than that! If your baby is smaller than Ruby, no worries—simply modify the workout. And if you’ve got older kids around too, why not include them in your workout!

Before we get started, here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Warm up before and cool down after by doing a few minutes of walking and light stretching.
  • Keep those ab muscles tight during all exercises for some awesome core and stability work.
  • If you need some help with balance or extra support, hold on to the back of a chair or bench.
  • Can’t quite get through the workout? Do what we do—we call it “chipping.” When you can’t do any more, stop for a few seconds, shake it out, and keep going. Repeat as needed. It works!
  • Always, always, always follow your doctor’s recommendations.

Ready? Let’s go!

Complete as many rounds as safely possible in 30 minutes of the following exercises:

  • 5 park bench push-ups CollagePushup1
  • 10 stable lunges 
    CollageLunge1
  • 15 supported squats *can be done on a bench if desired 
    CollageSquat1
  • 1 fast-paced walk around the park WalkingSmiling

NOTE: Safety first! If one round is all you feel it is safe to complete with your little one on your back, then finish out the remainder of the 30 minutes with a fast-paced walk around the park. Walking burns calories!! However, keep up the rounds as long as you are feeling you and baby are good and safe.

For a more advanced version, these moves can be done without support as well, as long as baby is safe:

  • Advanced lunge: Step out first to ensure stability, then bend into the lunge 
    CollageAdvancedLunge1
  • Advanced squat: Keep feet shoulder-width apart and weight on heels for max stability. Use your arms as a counter balance. AdvancedSquat3

Besides helping me get in some amazing workouts, here are some other reasons I’m such a pro-babywearing workout momma:

  • Workouts can be done anywhere (inside and outside).
  • You get a natural resistance progression as baby grows.
  • You can do each workout all at once or throughout your day as you have a few free minutes.
  • Your little can help you get and stay fit.
  • Workouts are good for beginners to not-so-beginners—basically everyone.
  • You’re teaching your kiddos the importance of exercise and that working out is really fun!
  • And the best thing? Extra bonding time with your little one. 🙂

  11. LG - April 30, 2015

    I currently use just a wrap with my newborn, and just to do chores around the house but I’m hoping to venture out into walks and hiking with my husband and baby this summer!

    Oh boy….this is such a fun and exciting workout for both mom and babe! My little girl would love to ride along with me for the workout in this awesome carrier! Thanks Heidi for the great workout! We LOVE it!

  16. Susan - April 29, 2015

    I push my 22 month old in the stroller while using the carrier for my two month old. It’s also great to keep my baby close while chasing my toddler around the playground. I would love to upgrade to this awesome carrier! It would be put to good use.

  17. Christie - April 29, 2015

    I want one of these so bad! I have a ring sling I wear baby in now but we would love to go on our walks snuggling up to each other.

  18. Jessica Miller - April 29, 2015

    I would love one, so we could go on hikes easier.

  19. chaelynn - April 29, 2015

    I love how realistic the workout is for busy mommas! I need the ergo carrier!!

  20. Kaylee Hawkins - April 29, 2015

    I can’t wait to try your workout! I have a toddler would love to incorporate her in my workout routine- this carrier would allow me to do that and help me get into shape for summer! You are such an inspiration to busy moms like myself. I’m graduating college this May and looking forward to enjoying summed with my little one- thanks for all your fitness advice as I plan to be active and work out more with my extra time this summer!

  21. Lauren W - April 29, 2015

    I would love this for hiking and Disneyland trips with my 11mo and very active 4.5yo

  22. Christine - April 29, 2015

    I’d wear it to do this workout & walking around the neighborhood to keep up with my toddler!

  23. Audra - April 29, 2015

    I am a new mom looking for ways to get back in shape and spend more quality time with my daughter!

  24. Taryn - April 29, 2015

    What a fun giveaway! I am pregnant with my second, due in July, and currently have a 17 month old. I am a stay at home mom and high school Pom/dance coach and have my son with me. We love baby wearing and want to learn more about this one!

  25. Angela - April 29, 2015

    This would be perfect for my stroller strides class when the babe wants to be held during workouts, or for adding some extra workouts in around the house.

  26. Amanda - April 29, 2015

    My son would love to ride around in one of these!!

  27. Kimberly Arenas - April 29, 2015

    would love to knock out some workouts with my baby on!

  28. Shauna - April 29, 2015

    Love this! My youngest is attached to me (which as a mom, I don’t mind.) wow, this would be outstanding!

    You and your husband ROCK!

  29. Elizabeth Stokely - April 29, 2015

    I finally got cleared to start working out after giving birth to our Irish Twins. As someone who has struggled with weight and the difficulty of losing it while keeping my asthma under control I found that baby wearing is so helpful. I currently go for walks with either my 14 month old on my back or three month old on my front. If I have baby in front I tend to add the 14 month old in the stroller to push. I also recently started doing squats and lunges with baby in carrier but I feel like she is about to over heat more then myself in the Gilbert heat!

  30. Kristina - April 29, 2015

    This is something I can see coming in very handy!

  31. Michele - April 29, 2015

    Seeing this is so encouraging to me. I’m currently on a journey to greater health and fitness, I’ve got 80lbs to lose, but I’m also planning for a baby in the near future. it’s encouraging to see proof that these two things can work well together 🙂

  32. Tonya Forsmann - April 29, 2015

    Would love to try this item out

  33. Tonya Forsmann - April 29, 2015

    Seams like something i would like to try out.
    Thanks you

  34. Kari - April 29, 2015

    i would SO love one!!!

  35. Charline - April 29, 2015

    I carry my Grand-daughter while grocery shopping… a little extra weight-bearing exercise in my day!

  36. tracy - April 29, 2015

    My son would love to be in this when we take our walks! 🙂

  37. Casey Storm - April 29, 2015

    Oh I love this!!! Baby #4 due in November- I will have plenty of workout buddies!!! I love my ergobaby carrier I have- but this style looks wonderful!!! P.s. You and little Ruby are just beautiful!!!

  38. Jamie - April 29, 2015

    Baby won’t be here for 3.5 more weeks but I would love this for walks!

  39. Erin L - April 29, 2015

    i use my ergo during my stroller fitness class, I’ve got 2 in the stroller and 1 in the Ergo. We also love to go on walks and hikes as a family, especially when our oldest(of 4) is out of school. I would love love and performance carrier! Especially as the weather gets warmer my little guy gets pretty warm in our original Ergo.

  40. Debby Curran - April 29, 2015

    I worked out with my daughter as well. It was a joy for both of us. She had the cutest workout outfits. She’s expecting the end of July. (I’ll be there). I would love to give her this. A gift of fitness is the best gift. She’s amazing.

  41. Mary - April 29, 2015

    This carrier would be awesome!

  42. Hilde - April 29, 2015

    The baby carrier we have is so uncomfortable to wear and squeaks loud when the baby is in seat. :-/ so it would be great to have a carrier that makes no sound, so we really can enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

  43. Jenn Bane - April 29, 2015

    Normally I just wear it walking but now I’m going to try these idea’s from your blog! Thank you for the chance to enter!

  44. Rebecca Bryant - April 29, 2015

    I am a mom of 3 with #4 on the way and our family LOVES the outdoors! This pack would help so much in helping me get back into shape and for all our family hiking/camping trips! What a great workout you laid out as well!!

  45. Jessie Pierce - April 29, 2015

    Oh Heidi how I would love to have one of these for this baby!! I have a cheap one that I had for my other babies that I’m using but it hurts cuz it digs into my shoulders and lats. Obviously cuz it’s a cheapo 😉 I use mine on walks and bike rides to the park and hiking! I so need this to loose these baby pounds pronto! Love ya 😉 Jess

  46. Jessica - April 29, 2015

    I’m currently 33 weeks pregnant and have a little girl who just turned 2 in early April. We have two golden retrievers as well 🙂 We are a very active family and something like this would be so helpful in staying active! Love your ideas for family life and your own personal goals! 😉

  47. Lisa - April 29, 2015

    I would love to have one of these! !

  48. Hayley R - April 29, 2015

    I am pregnant with baby #4. With all my previous kids, I tried the cheaper carrier options, and my kids always hated them! I would love to try a well-reviewed and recommended carrier like this, because I will definitely be needing some hands-free time to manage all the little ones!

  49. nechamah - April 29, 2015

    Love wearing my baby on walks. She is 30 lbs and boy do i feel the burn when going up hills.

  50. Tami - April 29, 2015

    This is great!!! Would love to wear my baby while trying to work off my extra baby cushion. :). Thank you!

  51. Daphne C - April 29, 2015

    I used my carrier for leg day workouts when my son (2) was not mobile yet. Baby-back-squats were my favorite! I’m due with baby boy #2 in July and I would LOVE to have a new Ergo carrier for workouts in the park with my boys!!!

  52. Jennifer - April 29, 2015

    I don’t have a carrier but would love one to make it easier to go on walks with my 16 month old.

  53. JENNIFER WHITAKER - April 29, 2015

    I can’t wait to take barre and ballet classes and wear our little girl after JULY!

  54. Michelle - April 29, 2015

    I use my woven wrap to carry my one year old on walks, shopping, everything! I would love to have padded straps!

  55. cheryl wall - April 29, 2015

    Sometimes that’s the only way to get in a bit of exercise and baby loves it 🙂 We’re role models for our children and showing good examples by exercising however we can is a great way to lead by example 🙂

  56. ashley egerdahl - April 29, 2015

    Yess. Could definitely use this for my backyard playground work outs!!

  57. Nikki - April 29, 2015

    I am entering to win this ergo carrier for my twin sister. She is in the process of iui and other fertility treatments after 4 years of trying to have a baby. I had a carrier through my two kids and found it very useful. I would love for her to have one too.

  58. Amber - April 29, 2015

    Weeks away from havin my second do baby boy. I would love this carrier for playing outside with my energetic 2 yr old and babe!!

  59. Heidi M - April 29, 2015

    My husband and I are expecting our first baby in 8 weeks and 1 day 🙂 . We can’t afford a gym membership but we both workout and home and do the best with what we have! I love this idea of getting a workout with baby involved!

  60. Erin - April 29, 2015

    I have 4 children under age 6- I use my Ergo Carrier and a double stroller to get around most days in public. I always think it would be nice to have two carriers to wear one on my front and one on my back- what a workout that would be!!!!! I love the Ergo- it’s so nice and comfortable!

  61. Aftan - April 29, 2015

    I have a two week old, and before getting prego and all during pregnancy I managed to keep up my workout routine at the gym of my competition days. I am currently doing circuits with no weight but as my body getts stronger, I would love to use this ergo baby to add the extra weight of my little one while getting my body back. I think it’s an life altering experience to expose the baby to working out as little as possible while making it enjoyable and fun for both mom and baby.

  62. Jenna - April 29, 2015

    I would love to win one of these! I am having my second child – due July 1st and this would be great to help me get back in shape for my 5 year anniversary trip in September! Thanks for the opportunity to enter to win!

  63. Jenna - April 29, 2015

    I use my carrier when I go out walking, I had never thought to do workouts like the ones in this post, such a great idea! I will be doing this from now on!

  64. Erin - April 29, 2015

    I love baby wearing, especially at the grocery store. I would love a more substantial carrier for hiking and family walks!

  65. Megan - April 29, 2015

    Hi Heidi!

    If I had this baby carrier I would be able to work out with my 7 week old son on my back. I could chase around his three year old sister, go for a long fast paced walk, do squats and push ups. With this baby carrier I would no longer have any excuses not to work out. This baby carrier would help me achieve my goals of getting back into shape the old fashioned healthy way (hard work and eating right). Winning this baby carrier would be such a blessing! With summer coming up I would be able to use it every day! Also, I could use this for household chores and grocery shopping, I feel like this carrier would make my life a lot easier, and would make it fun to get into shape!

    Thanks!!

  66. Naomi G. - April 29, 2015

    I will say I not only am just leaving a comment to be put in the running but also because I want you to know that I really aspire to be like you.

  67. Jenn - April 29, 2015

    thank you so much for such a great possibility and your inspiration as a mama! You have taught me grace and to laugh at myself! Thank you for being an amazing role model for me as I parent my babies!

  68. Flower Rodriguez - April 29, 2015

    I currently don’t use one since I am still pregnant but have heard lots of great things about the ergo carrier. This has been on my wishlist since I found out I was pregnant. Once my healthy baby boy arrives and I am cleared to go I cant wait to start being active again along with having that little guy with me.

  69. Megan Mecha - April 29, 2015

    Hi Heidi!

    I just had my son on March 10th, with severe complications from the beginning of my pregnancy I was put on restrictions with no working out. I unfortunately gained 60 pounds. Now I am in the process of losing that 60 pounds by eating right and working out. This baby carrier would make my life so much easier, with no excuses not to work out! I would love to have the chance to win this, to help me in succeeding in my healthy goals!

    Thanks <3

  70. Katie - April 29, 2015

    I love to wear mine for walks and hiking but my favorite baby wearing workout is the grocery store. It’s often overlooked but you can incorporate exercise in daily activities too. Squatting to reach those items on the bottom shelf and reaching overhead to get the tall things. Following you on FBOOK and Instagram.

  71. Devin M - April 29, 2015

    My daughter loves to be worn when I work out, we mostly use a ring sling, so a more supportive carrier would mean I can do more, and she can enjoy it more. This carrier looks fantastic!

  72. Audrey - April 29, 2015

    Wow just what I need would be amazing to help me get fit for my wedding and include my little one she would love it as much as I do.

  73. Beckie - April 29, 2015

    Thank you so much for this post!!! I gained 100 pounds during my pregnancy and have using ergo baby since birth! As summer approaches the original gets super hot so I would love to have the active one to continue my journey of health. My little guy is 18 months and still lives for baby wearing!

  74. Nicole Abel - April 29, 2015

    This looks like An amazing carrier. I would love to have one it would make our Hilking this summer a lot easier! I love all the different exercises that Heidi has come up with to do with it. Miss ruby is the same age as my little boy Knox

  75. Brianna Ring - April 29, 2015

    Hey Heidi,
    This baby carrier would be amazing to have. IT would make exercising more easy and enjoyable. I love to workout but having 3 little ones makes it a lot harder to push myself. We love to go on walks and running around playing and having fun.

  76. Veronica - April 29, 2015

    I would love this carrier! I would go for lots of hikes with lo in it.

  77. Amy Chrzanowski - April 29, 2015

    I would love to win one. I love to walk and hike with my 9 and 2 year old and our puppy.

  78. Marisa Dominguez - April 29, 2015

    Would love to have this carrier!

  79. Andrea - April 29, 2015

    I have 4 month old twins. I have a classic Ergo but I would love a second to wear both babies on hikes & walks. I’m a runner but carrying two babies a walk would probably be just as good of a workout 😉

  80. Hannah - April 29, 2015

    The ergo looks so great and I’d LOVE to have one of my own to help get me outside and working out again!!! Used to go hiking almost daily!! I just had a baby and she actually turns a month old tomorrow April 30th!!! Month old birthday gift for my baby girl maybe??? :p probably more of a gift for mom:) thanks for all you do Heidi!

  81. Claire - April 29, 2015

    I live in AZ too and even though it’s a million degrees during the summer, I still love it! I’m expecting my first baby this summer and can’t wait to get back in shape with her on my back (or front) using the ergo baby!

  82. Sarah - April 29, 2015

    Thank you for giving us all an opportunity to win an item that will help us exercise while bonding with our little one. You and your beautiful family are an inspiration to all of us.

  83. patricia - April 29, 2015

    I’d use the ergo to do the work out above. Momma needs her body back. Really bad lol I’d put toddler in the jogger and baby in the ergo.

  84. Jessica - April 29, 2015

    Hello Hiedi
    This would be wonderful to get. I need something that I can do with my little one. Beside placing him in a stroller. Plus playing with my oldest. Could you please consider me. Thank you.

  85. Cristalina - April 29, 2015

    I would really love to have this baby carrier we cannot afford own and this would make life so much easier.

  86. Jen Kloza - April 29, 2015

    Heidi,

    I currently carry my 8 month old in a Bjorn almost everywhere we go (supermarket, zoo, mall, school, etc). I also have a five and two year old. I carried both of them in the Bjorn as well. For me, there is something magical being so close to my baby all day. I have heard that the Ergo carriers are more comfortable and can carry a higher weight (so maybe I could carry my 20 lbs two year old, too). Thank you for posting these exercises ….. I am going to try some this afternoon (as my back permits – lol). I first saw you and Chris on EWL last season. Your personality hooked me – thank you for being who you are and please know you inspire way more people than you know.

    Take care and God bless.

    Jen

  87. Zandi - April 29, 2015

    Loved your post! My son and I would love to own one of those amazing carriers!

  88. Amanda Basiger - April 29, 2015

    Love this! This year our goal is to start working out as a family and and show my 3year old and 1 year old how to be healthy everyday. I love my ergo and was sad when the snap part broke. I’ve been making due ever since but would love to get the ergo sport so I can start wearing him during workouts again;)

  89. Andrea - April 29, 2015

    Hello Powell team:),
    I am sending Hello from Czech republic, which is far away from you:), so I don’t know if I can actually join ………but anyway I love you…both of you:)

  90. Jenny - April 29, 2015

    What a great blog post. I am all for anything exercise that includes the family. I would love to take my awesome 7 year old on hikes while carrying his little 9 month old baby sister in the ergo carrier.

  91. Ashlee Miller - April 29, 2015

    Heidi! The ergo may be the best invention ever! Not only for exercise but for our social life as well! We have taken our little one to football games, San Francisco, on airplanes , the lake (on a boat) and wine tasting! I hadn’t seen the performance ergo yet but it looks amazing!!

  92. Kimmie - April 29, 2015

    I would love to have one of these carrier’s. We are a Army strong family, my husband has been in Korea for 9 months. He is coming home in late June. I have lost 30lbs since he has been gone but would love to lose a few more before he comes home. Thank you for the chance.

  93. Jennifer - April 29, 2015

    Our summers are very short up in North Ontario and I would so love to have this to workout with my precious little girl!

    My objective is to get back to my swimming career body or as close to as possible….with my two kids under 2 it’s not always easy!

  94. Jordana - April 29, 2015

    I would love to try this work out out! Baby wearing is so good for the soul, and the body.

  95. Amanda - April 29, 2015

    this would be wonderful!! My eldest is always asking to go for a walk. We could take baby in the carrier and walk everywhere!!

  96. Rene - April 29, 2015

    Raising my 7 month old grandson and trying to incorporate workouts can be challenging while working full time and helping with my 2 year old grand daughter also. This would be very helpful!!

  97. Elizabeth - April 29, 2015

    I had no idea Ergobaby had a performance carrier! How great! I have baby number 3 due this summer and I am sure he will practically live in the carrier when out and about since I haven’t grown that third arm yet!

  98. Kristen - April 29, 2015

    Omg I would love to have this!!!! I have been biking with my little one but we would love to include her in family hikes!!!

  99. angie - April 29, 2015

    I would so love to have one .its hart to try and work out when you have a two year old running all over place this would so work .Im in need of losing 75 pds .

  100. Kelly - April 29, 2015

    I have been wanting to try one and would love to win

  101. Nicole Gauvin - April 29, 2015

    I am due in less than 2 weeks! I can’t wait to be able to start working out again and getting in shape. I don’t have a carrier like this (I have a Boba wrap) but after reading this I want one so bad! Would make working out so much easier!!

  102. Samantha - April 29, 2015

    I would use it to go on walks and hikes with my little one!

  103. Krystal booher - April 29, 2015

    I am 22 weeks with my second boy- God has a paved a way for me to hang my teaching hat up to try my hands at being a stay at home mom next year! We are on a very tight budget as a result. We’d love tri win and put this carrier to some serious use!

  104. Kelli - April 29, 2015

    My third baby was born in October so she is almost 7 months old. This would be perfect for us! I work out with all three of my kiddos. Only 15 more pounds to my goal weight!

  105. Brandye Reeves - April 29, 2015

    Ohhh I would love to have this carrier. I have been in search for one to carry my 15 month old for not only exercising but for a cruise we will be going on in august.

  106. Rhiannon - April 29, 2015

    I would love to use my ergo for hikes as a family this summer

  107. Leah Poindexter - April 29, 2015

    I baby sit my grandson 3 days a week, not alway able exercise when he is here. Would love to be able to take outside with this and exercise. I started running the fall of 2013, ran my first mini marathon in 2014, and ran a mini last week. My pace is slow, hoping to get faster. This will help me to get more time in on the pavement.

  108. Julie Laberge - April 29, 2015

    I dont have any baby carrier and i think it will be easier to do my exercices instead of waiting for my baby girl to go to bed 🙂 I still have 20 pounds to loose!!!!

  109. Abbie - April 29, 2015

    My current carrier no longer holds my 17 month old comfortably, but would I love to take her hiking again!

  110. Sarah Wilson - April 29, 2015

    I currently have an ergo sport that we are starting to work out in but in central TX it is VERY HOT, we walk 3 times a week around our football field while big brother is atest practice for 1 mile. I’m excited to try these other exercises to up my workout game!!

  111. Emily k - April 29, 2015

    As a family who can’t afford a gym membership, I would so love and appreciate to have something like this!! It would allow me to include my 9 month old and 2 year old in things that are too hard to do with them otherwise (like going for hikes as a family). Thank you for giving us an opportunity to win one! You are truly an inspiration!

  112. Stephanie macmillan - April 29, 2015

    Hello Heidi!
    I love this carrier I just went hiking with my son and dog the other day, but my carrier is not so great for hiking I had to have an extra bag because mine has no pockets or pouches! I would love to win this carrier to get back into shape!!

  113. Susan - April 29, 2015

    Grandmas need them too. Would love to have one to tote my 6 month old grandson in while we go on outings.

  114. Valerie Brown - April 29, 2015

    This would be so great for my giant baby who insist I hold him all the time..lol I try to get workouts in but it hard with a little needy one! Hope I win it’s a great idea! Love you Heidi! You are such a positive influence to all women! 🙂

  115. Johanna page - April 29, 2015

    I don’t have a carrier, but would love one! In getting back on the fitness track and this workout looks like so much fun and is doable with the family. I love it! Definitely would be very beneficial for life in general 🙂

  116. Jessica - April 29, 2015

    Would love to win this! It’s hard to find time to get a workout in but this would help in so many ways!

  117. Samantha - April 29, 2015

    This is awesome! As soon as my baby can support herself enough to safely wear her on my back I plan to try! Of course it would be great if I had a sweet new ergo performance to help! 😉

  118. Dawn - April 29, 2015

    I am a mother of four who is just learning how to make time for me. I homeschool so they ate with me most of the time. This carrier looks amazing! What a great way to be able to exercise with my one year old on my back while the other kids play on the park! Would love the opportunity to own one of these!

  119. Catalina Pagaza - April 29, 2015

    As an obese mom of four, my youngest is 12 months and I’ve gone 80% vegan. I’m loving the change but I need to get out and exercise more but it’s so difficult! I need this! Thank you & you guys are such an inspiration!

  120. Keshia - April 29, 2015

    I babywear on walks! I hoping to do more than just walking! I will have to implement your suggestions into our walks! Thanks!

  121. Meredith - April 29, 2015

    I can’t wait to wear my little one. He has spent 9 months happily nestled inside of me and I want him to spend as long as he wants nestled close to me on the outside too

  122. Sylvia - April 29, 2015

    I would love this… :)… I have 3 children already and one on the way! I still work out but this would help once our new buddle of joy is here to keep up with My older ones and all their activities.

  123. Megan Lakin - April 29, 2015

    I may not be a mommy, but I’m the best auntie around. I truly feel my purpose was to be a devoted loving auntie, instead of a mommy. Having said that, I love kids and have at least one of my many nieces every week. All of my babes love working out with me. Two of my sisters are currently pregnant, and this auntie would love to have something like this to use when I have my nieces here, it would be perfect. I find myself obly able to workout during nap times, which is really when i need to get work done. So again, this would be perfect. Thanks for the opportunity.

  124. karen canup - April 29, 2015

    I’m reading your post while in the hospital in labor with my 4th child! I would love to win this!!

  125. Lisa Cummings - April 29, 2015

    love my ergo!! Would love this one too!! It would be much cooler for the summer months to get outside and workout!!

  126. Jennifer - April 29, 2015

    i would love this carrier for my daughter!! We love to baby wear everywhere 🙂

  127. Nanette Merritt - April 29, 2015

    I have a 6yr old and about to give birth to his little brother. My 6yr old is involved in football, I’m team mom and my husband is a coach. I have done lots of research and the Ergobaby carrier is the best. I am rea
    Lily looking forward to getting one and using it while I chase all my little football players on and off the field. I tired to use a different carrier with my first son, but he didnot like it.

  128. Dana Brewer - April 29, 2015

    I have been working out all most a year. This would be awesome bc some days she just wants to hang out with mom. So I carry her, pull the wagon, or car whatever works.

  129. Dawn - April 29, 2015

    I would love to keep my baby involved with family walks through babywearing.

  130. Julie Eisenmann - April 29, 2015

    This looks lIke an awesome carrier! Would love to win!

  131. Beth Pelc - April 29, 2015

    I wear my baby a lot so I take advantage of the extra weight and do a lot of squats. I am also constantly moving while wearing her so it’s a good workout 🙂

  132. Holly Freincle - April 29, 2015

    My beautiful daughter is 8 weeks old and loves to be near mommy! The carrier is about the only way to get anything done especially during a workout! However my carrier is not as efficient as the ergo. It looks amazing. It’s very hard squeezing a workout in with a nursing baby and a loving two year old so any little thing helps tremendously!

  133. Heather Daniel - April 29, 2015

    I hike with my little girl!

  134. Kate - April 29, 2015

    I wear my baby everywhere I go, and about half the time I end up wearing the toddler as well. With stuff, I end up carrying about 20 kg between them.

  135. Becca Osborne - April 29, 2015

    With four small boys one only 2 months, I would certainly use this ergo for hikes with my boys. I don’t have a double stroller and only a wrap… So this would be perfect for baby wearing while running after the big boys … My current daily exercise.

  136. McKell - April 29, 2015

    Would love this!

  137. Katie - April 29, 2015

    Would love a carrier like this! Took my boy flea marketing and brought the umbrella stroller thinking it’d be easier to maneuver….had to carry the entire stroller and baby across grass, gravel and even some pavement! It was a good workout, but I’d much rather do the moves you posted by choice. 🙂

  138. Ashley - April 29, 2015

    This would help me tremendously. I would be able to get so much done around the house and work out!! My son would love to be worn all the time.

  139. Brooke - April 29, 2015

    I am expecting and due the end of Aug. so this would be perfect! I am looking forward to incorporating my baby in my workouts to improve the health of both of us and for even more bonding time together 🙂

  140. Megan peoples - April 29, 2015

    Oh my gosh ive never seen this before! I need this so badly! You come up with the most creative, no excuses ways to get things done, I just love it!

  141. Rachel - April 29, 2015

    I had my first child, Brendan, 13 years ago. I had something similar to what you’re giving away. My use was slightly different though. I’d strap him to my back and clean the house. He would fall asleep each time. Some say I spoiled him, but I say hold them while you can. Now, all these years later I have another on the way. I’m excited to have a tiny snuggle bug again.

  142. royalle - April 29, 2015

    You look great! I’d love to get a carrier. I currently need to lose 100 pounds and I have two under two years of age. This would make for some much needes activities to get me on track. I recently gave birth to my second daughter who was born premature. I gained a lot of weight during this last pregnancy and I blamed my self for the early delivery. After 33 days in the Nicu I brought my precious baby home. But now I realize how important it is to get healthy for her and my toddler. And I need to give them the best chance at a healthy life as well. regardless of winning the carrier I have to do this for my self and my girls. You inspire me everyday. Thanks for being you!

    Royalle.

  143. Emilie Isabell - April 29, 2015

    i love my ergo. I’ve used it since she was a newborn. To go for walks, cuddles, when she needed sleep, when I made dinner etc. Now we use it when travelling, going to kindergarden, shopping and hiking. As you can tell – I love my ergo <3 but I need a new, it's getting "Old" a Also, purple is my fave colour.

  144. Claudia Zosky - April 29, 2015

    It’s my birthday and I wouldn’t mind a gift to share with my wee one since he’s starting to get difficult to carry! This carrier would be awesome to workout in with him! F as miles who wod together, stay together 🙂

  145. Ashley - April 28, 2015

    I use my carrier for hiking, walking and cleaning my house!

  146. Bridgette S - April 28, 2015

    I don’t have one but want one so bad for my baby!!

  147. Bridgette S - April 28, 2015

    I don’t have one but would love one to work out with my sweet baby!

  148. Diana - April 28, 2015

    i wear my little one on nearly every shopping trip and outing we go on. It makes her happy and gives me an extra workout while walking.

  149. Whitneigh S - April 28, 2015

    I walk with my son a lot but I have been searching for a babywearing workout that a beginner like me can do. This looks perfect!

  150. Raina - April 28, 2015

    I love my regular Ergo, but I am so excited to use this one while I’m melting off the pregnany pounds!

  151. Lindsey Deinhardt - April 28, 2015

    I’d love to win this! So cool

  152. Cecilia - April 28, 2015

    I really need something like that. I had been wanting go hiking here in Arizona since I moved 9 years ago. I just had my third child 10 weeks ago and I am struggling to lose the 30 lbs I gained. I could really use the carrier.

  153. Elizabeth - April 28, 2015

    My 4 month old loves being in the middle of everything so this would make it so much easier to get a workout in as well as get everyday chores done.

  154. Renee - April 28, 2015

    I don’t have a baby carrier for my 9 month old. But I do carry him am when I do stairs and when I go for short walks. We use the jogging stroller when going long distances. A carrier would be a perfect excuse to carry him on my 5 mile walks!

  155. Kristen - April 28, 2015

    So I must admit, this is not for myself, my sister-in-law is expecting her first and I know is would come in handy. And what a great way to have fun working out and getting back into shape, I will be sure to share this with her 🙂

  156. Abby Grimm - April 28, 2015

    i would love to have this!!! We are having our first baby and I am so very excited to babywear! I workout 2 hours a day and this carrier would be a lifesaver!! ❤️

  157. Megan - April 28, 2015

    This would be so amazing to have on our family walks 🙂 Heidi, you are awesome! Such an inspiration!

  158. Heidi - April 28, 2015

    I baby wear so that I can hike! Somewhere the jogging stroller DEFINITELY CAN’T go!

    I also baby wear around the house to get chores done and even baby wear to go shopping too.

    I LOVE TO BABY WEAR!

  159. Melinda burnett - April 28, 2015

    Wow this would be awesome to use to get back in shape and keep up with my USAF hubby!

  160. Amanda - April 28, 2015

    I would love love love this for my 11month old 🙂 Xo

  161. Jenna - April 28, 2015

    Would love to add this workout to our walking routine. My youngest was born just after Ruby 🙂

  162. Stephanie-Rose - April 28, 2015

    I’ve mostly walked with him on my back, but it’s a lot of walking! I’m trying out this workout tomorrow after my run!

  163. Jennifer - April 28, 2015

    this looks like the perfect fit for what we need!! My husband and I love working out and sometimes feel constrained by daily demands of life and a new baby! Working out makes me feel like me, I feel energized and confident even when I get a chance to do some lunges! I can’t wait to teach my daughter how to live fit and healthy! I think you are such an inspiration! Thank you for considering us!!!

  164. Heather Kellett - April 28, 2015

    I would love to have this for my sister in law. She will be a first time mom very soon. ❤️❤️

  165. Kayla - April 28, 2015

    This is such an awesome give away! I shared on facebook so all my mommy friends have a chance to see. I have a cheaper baby carrier and although it hurts my back after a while I love baby wearing. I wear mine in the house to get cleaning done and take my daughter on walks whenever the weather is nice, which has been atleast once a day all week this week 🙂 I would love to win this and get the chance to try out more baby wearing workout and work off my extra baby weight!

  166. Jolene - April 28, 2015

    I am working on baby number 3 due June 25th so I’m making an infant carrier to begin with and then once baby is bigger this would be perfect for this Momma to get her hotness back. I’m on a mission to get my body back. Not only for myself but also to be a great influence on my family. My hubby is making me a jump box. I’m excited about that (will not wear baby in that workout part, lol) I plan on having my baby with me on probably most workouts so I’ll be wearing him a lot. Yes having a boy 😀 after having two girls 😀 I’d be super excited to have a carrier like this!!!

  167. krissy - April 28, 2015

    I would love this. My second baby is due Oct 2nd. I worked out with my first one using the Bjorn and it hurt my back terribly. Looking for something I can use daily to get rid of the extra lbs.

  168. Nicole Martinek - April 28, 2015

    I love baby wearing! My daughter is getting too big to wear her on the front of me, so this would be perfect! We love spending time outside!

  169. Tashlyn - April 28, 2015

    I haven’t worked out wearing my baby yet but would love to try!!

  170. Melissa adams - April 28, 2015

    I would love this. I need something to carry my 23 month old around while we hike.

  171. Jessica dobmeier - April 28, 2015

    I use my ergo baby to climb stairs. Makes it easier to carry my older child.

  172. Kristina - April 28, 2015

    What a great idea for moms. And the most adorable workout partner! Hope i win! Thanks for all the amazing ideas Heidi and sharing your cutie pie with us! Her smile is so cute!

  173. Carolyn Williams - April 28, 2015

    My sister is a new mom at 37 yrs old and could so use this! The Bjorne always hurts her back.

  174. Meghan - April 28, 2015

    I don’t have a carrier, but with baby #2 on the way (only 18 months after baby #1 eek!) It’s definitely on my wish list! I live in Utah where there are lots of out door activities and I plan on taking lots of walks and going on plenty of hikes.
    Thanks for sharing! Miss Ruby looks like she enjoyed herself.

  175. Jamie - April 28, 2015

    I take my little ones to the park daily. Climbing up the stairs, running after them never stops. We also go on family walks and just everyday trips to the market. My current carrier has been with me every step of the way.

  176. Jessica - April 28, 2015

    I think I need this for baby #2 due in September. Didn’t love the carrier I had with my first:( and going to need all hands on deck to take care of my toddler when new baby arrives, I’m going to have 2 kids under 2!

  177. Courtney - April 28, 2015

    I’ve been looking at these for a year now since my 2nd daughter Aubrey was born. I love to hold her but my lower back has had such issues since my first trimester of pregnancy and she just turned a year old in march. I would love to have this to use for all my walks and even family functions so i can handle my 3 year old and 1 year old at the same time.

  178. Rachelle Riddle - April 28, 2015

    i don’t currently use a carrier for my baby to exercise but I’m really hoping to soon! I have a 1 year old daughter with a rare heart condition that has kept us in the hospital a lot. She’s very attached to me! Our long hospital stays have derailed me from my getting healthy and in shape journey. I’m hoping I can get this carrier so she can be with me and I can get back my energy and health!

  179. DesMarie - April 28, 2015

    I would use the carrier for my kiddo due in October for walks & hikes. It would be such an asset!

  180. Kimberly - April 28, 2015

    We use our carrier for walks and hikes

  181. Ashley H - April 28, 2015

    My carrier comes in handy for walks, camping, traveling, shopping and just when my toddler wants to play outside but the baby needs to be close to me. I plan on using it a lot this summer since I have a newborn at home and some weight to shed. Your ergo looks perfect for workouts.

  182. Amber - April 28, 2015

    Wearing my baby girl while working out would bring me great joy! I would love to show my daughter from a young age how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and have her be involved <3

  183. Monique Cimino - April 28, 2015

    We love babywearing to walk our dog! Our second baby girl is due in 3 weeks and babywearing is going to be a lifesaver for walks to the park!

  184. Melissa - April 28, 2015

    i love the ergo!!! I would love to win this style so that I can do more workouts with my baby girl as she is getting older now.

  185. Chelsea - April 28, 2015

    I’m expecting my first little one at the end of July and living in Hawaii I would LOVE to workout and be outdoors as much as possible with my baby! Couldn’t be more excited!

  186. Diane - April 28, 2015

    What a great carrier!! Would be amazing to win!! ❤️

  187. Sena Schwendinger - April 28, 2015

    I haven’t gotten the chance to wear one and that would be great for walks with my Littles. Not to mention adding the extra weight for resistance, genius

  188. mallory - April 28, 2015

    I love this!!! Baby wearing is amazing! My 14mo old son hates the stroller baby wearing is the only way we go! Would love to win!

  189. Ashley Nieman - April 28, 2015

    I use my carrier on walks!

  190. Celeste Caldwell - April 28, 2015

    How amazing is this carrier! I am dying over all the things you can do with your little one. I plan on nice walks and doing lunges and squats with my cutie pie on my back. Oh, and hikes would be Aaaa-mazing!

  191. Lauren Robinson - April 28, 2015

    My favorite Babywearing exercise is babywearing ballet 🙂

  192. mandi - April 28, 2015

    I love wearing my carrier for everything! Especially for our nature walks!

  193. Brittany - April 28, 2015

    I teach group fitness classes at a local gym and love sharing fitness with those around me. I have never done a workout with a carrier, but I think it would be fun to teach others how to do so. Thanks for all you guys do!

  194. kim - April 28, 2015

    Great tips! Would love to win 🙂

  195. Ariadna - April 28, 2015

    Sometimes I feel like the only mom that was unable to lose the baby weight 5 years later! this would’ve been soo much help, I am trying for baby number 2 this would be a great gift.

  196. Autumn Bennett - April 28, 2015

    Id love to win an Ergobaby!!! I’m actually in the market for one now 🙂 I’m about to have my second child at the end of May and a two year old this Friday! I’ll be needing the extra hands it provides and it’ll be a great boost for this baby weight I desperately need to shed! Just thankful for this opportunity at winning. Thanks Heidi!!

  197. Melissa Yalinkatian - April 28, 2015

    At 5’2″ and 180 pre pregnancy I was already clinically obese. But now pregnant with my third child I want nothing more than to get completely in shape after she is born. And I want it to be a family affair. My husband could stand to lose a few as well. My kids are healthy and in shape and I would love to keep them that way. This would be an absolute gem to have while our getting fit journey begins once the baby arrives in October.

  198. Callie - April 28, 2015

    I use my ergo to baby carry my daughter while I push my son in the stroller . I would love a performance to stay cooler. I also hike with the ergo!

  199. Wendy - April 28, 2015

    I haven’t seen this before but lately I’ve been trying to figure out how to carry my daughter without hurting my back. This looks like the solution so we can all be outside playing together!

  200. Rhiannon Litecky - April 28, 2015

    I love this!! After baby 2, I am trying to tone up a bit and this is a perfect way to stay in shape and have fun at the same time. Thank you!!!

  201. Yesenia - April 28, 2015

    I’m not due until the 15th with baby #6. This would be great to use to get into shape with baby…right now I can’t even walk without my pelvis popping out of place!

  202. Challon - April 28, 2015

    This ergo carrier would be awesome to workout with my new baby coming later this year. I wore my daughter with another carrier when she was younger but it hurt my shoulders after only a short time.

  203. Jamie L Parker - April 28, 2015

    This would be awesome! Be able to get more work done by being hand free! Great way to strengthen your back and legs! Living on farm there is always work that needs to be done so this would be awesome my son is with me at all times! Don’t have to worry if he wondering off!

  204. Angelina Cuevas - April 28, 2015

    i would love it. I usemy carrier for long walks and chores around the house. It was the only way I could vacuum when baby was little since she was scared of the noise!

  205. Jenna burris - April 28, 2015

    This looks fantastic. I use my other carriers for walks and hands free things like dish washing. I wonder if arm reaches and body twists could work too

  206. Desiree Hempe - April 28, 2015

    Would love to have a carrier to take my 2 toddlers out on hikes and walks with our moms group. Its too hard to do right now

  207. Nichole Averett - April 28, 2015

    i love you and Chris !! I just had my 3rd baby and still have 15 more lbs to my pre pregnancy weight! I’ve wanted one of these so bad , but my hubby is in medical school residency so that won’t happen soon. I am a trainer, so I’d wear it while training my clients!

  208. Jessica M - April 28, 2015

    My husband and I are expecting out first baby at the end of this year and this looks like something that would help us both continue our lifestyles of working out even after baby arrives! Would love to be considered for this draw, thank you!

  209. Kelsey - April 28, 2015

    I just had our third child do workouts have been tricky. With two you can still use a jogger…not the third. The best way I’ve been able to get some exercise is taking the kids on bike rides while I walk with the baby in the carrier. My 3 and 2 year old ride their tricycles around our neighborhood while I follow walking, doing lunges, or squats. I love it because it gets my kids moving too.

  210. Catherine Risinger - April 28, 2015

    I wanted a ergo carrier when I had my first son back in 2011, but I never got one. I now have a 4 year old and just had another boy 5 weeks ago. I would love to have a ergo carrier to help me and my 5 week old keep up with big brother this summer and help me get back in shape.

  211. Megan - April 28, 2015

    What a fun way to stay in shape!!

  212. Valerie - April 28, 2015

    I would love to win this!! I have 3 children, my youngest one is 9 months old. I’ve been trying to get back into shape, but it’s been tough not being able to go to the gym. I would love to take him with me and do workouts at the park, and go on walks. Thank you for this opportunity!!

  213. Erica senkowski - April 28, 2015

    Would love to win for my husband

  214. Heather S. - April 28, 2015

    I have two boys, 17 years and 2 months, and boy have things changed since the oldest. I never heard of baby wearing when I was pregnant the first time. Wish I had.
    I would love this carrier for walking. Our family is doing our first 5k at the end of May, and this carrier would be perfect for the baby!
    Keep up the good work, Heidi! You are an inspiration!

  215. Catherine - April 28, 2015

    I am a single mom of three, student and a dayhome provider. I care for my 20 month old as well as a 2 year old and a 6 month old throughout the day. Having one secured to me while I push the other 2 in the double stroller would be a great workout and help! Plus I could use it while cleaning. It is the only way I have time to workout right now.

  216. Rachel - April 28, 2015

    Have one ergo and need a second. Was nine months pregnant and carrying my older son in one. But now that we have two only one of them gets carried. With a second ergo my husband and I could both carry one child and skip the stroller at times 🙂

  217. Annie - April 28, 2015

    as an active mom of two kids- 6yrs and 1 yr this would be SO great!! Right now I drag a jogging stroller everywhere we go because our carrier doesn’t allow for our son to be carried on my back. But it isn’t usual for me to incorporate him into my crossfit workouts at my box! Having something like would be AWESOME!! Pick me PLEASE!!

  218. ann britton - April 28, 2015

    I wish I had something like this when I had my daughter I’ve gained so much and she’s almost 8 yrs old working out just wasn’t fun since I got bigger.this would be great gift for someone

  219. Traci - April 28, 2015

    I actually don’t have a carrier right now. But I would love to win one so I am able to use it with one of my two year twins! It would be nice to use just a single jogging stroller when I go walking and then put the other twin on my back. Much easier than always using my BIG double stroller.

  220. Kelsi - April 28, 2015

    I would love to win this! My baby is due this summer and I NEED to jump right into post baby fitness!

  221. Jenna - April 28, 2015

    As a mom of 3 and one on the way I am always on the go! I would love to be able to strap my baby on comfortably and be able to walk the zoo, hike, beach, Disneyland, or workout at home! I must loose the baby weight with this baby like I have the others but I’m a little worried about making it all happen. Please please please pick me!!!!!!!!!

  222. Alison - April 28, 2015

    with my last baby I used my last carrier for everything do hikes on the weekend and leisurely family strolls. Then I still able to hold hands with mu hubby. 😉 Looking for a new carrier for the next one on the way!

  223. Leah - April 28, 2015

    I’m right in the middle of eSearching for a baby carrier for my daughter. I’m 41, had baby #3 8 months ago and I’m very active. My daughter is still too tiny for my mountain back pack carrier so this would be perfect as we hike daily! Love it so much!!

  224. Kayleigh Larkins - April 28, 2015

    I workout before the babies wake up but I still love babywearing! Shared on twitter (@kyancone)

  225. Kate Ablaka - April 28, 2015

    I love ergo, and would love even more to win this! 🙂

  226. Renee McCarthy - April 28, 2015

    My kids would love this. You are such a wonderful role model. Thanks for caring

  227. Michelle - April 28, 2015

    I use a front pack with my 15 month old son and do work outs with him now and to keeps up with his big sister on nightly walks. One of these would make things easier and be more comfortable.

  228. Grace Morales - April 28, 2015

    I love walking and going up and down the stairs with my carrier. Unfortunately it’s the stretchy fabric secured with knots type of wrap intented for younger babies. My son’s 16 months and doesn’t like being there anymore. I can’t wrap him on my back by myself so I can’t use it on a regular basis. I’d love getting a new one. I hope I win!

  229. Lauren - April 28, 2015

    When I was pregnant with my son I decided I had to buy a good carrier. I decided on the ErgoBaby and have loved it ever since. I wore him until I found out I was pregnant with my third baby (currently pregnant due in August). I would love to opportunity to carry both my son and my new baby at the same time with two Ergos to maximize my weight loss!

  230. Becca - April 28, 2015

    I would absolutely love to have this to be able to carry my 3 month old in as I play with my 2 & 3 year old babes! I want to keep us active & healthy! 🙂

  231. Abbie - April 28, 2015

    I would love one for keeping up with my bigger boys, walks to the park, shopping, soccer games- just about everywhere!!! And of course squats :)))

  232. Lorraine Johnson - April 28, 2015

    My daughter is due to deliver my first grandchild next month. I would love this for her and so I can use it when I’m visiting or babysitting. Us Grandmas need to get in shape too to keep up with the grandkids who keep us young!

  233. Marta - April 28, 2015

    You & your husband are an inspiring couple! Thank you for setting the bar high! Keep up the good work. Cheers!

  234. Cara Gulledge - April 28, 2015

    I don’t have one yet but I would use it for when we go on family hikes. It looks so comfortable for both parties.

  235. Katie B. - April 28, 2015

    What a great way to get a workout in! My little one would love this!

  236. Alexis Crowgey - April 28, 2015

    I use a carrier for everything! My sweet baby just turned 4 months and is already 20 pounds! My older kids are in sports and dance so my baby is worn a lot. The carrier we have now really bothers my back so I would really appreciate this one. Thank you!

  237. Deanna McNeil - April 28, 2015

    Awesome! I would love to get outside for a workout with my babe!

  238. Vanessa - April 28, 2015

    I love my ergo and think this one would be perfect in the hot az heat! Love mine for hiking!

  239. Alyssa - April 28, 2015

    Heidi, You are such a wonderful role model, and the positive light of your family constantly radiates and blesses others!
    My husband and I just found out we are EXPECTING our FIRST baby this December!! We are over-the-moon excited! 🙂
    We are an active couple and team in everything we do, and I am currently a personal trainer and fitness instructor of 20-30 ladies each week. I LOVE inspiring them, and would put that ErgoBaby to use daily in workouts, inspiring other moms around me who may need help and motivation in leading a healthy lifestyle, and most importantly, incorporating an active lifestyle into my precious little one’s life as early on as possible!

    Thank you!! <3

  240. charlotte Shobert - April 28, 2015

    Don’t know if my spunky beautiful 14 month daughter Josie Lynn could fit into one of these but I’ve always wanted to get one. We love doing stuff together outside! I was in a slump and unhappy about my body but have recently lost 13 lbs and am full of energy. I’m enjoying working out again, but I would love to be able to include Josie when I can’t make it to the gym!

  241. Jessica Branch - April 28, 2015

    I currently don’t have a carrier. My daughter is 1 1/2 and loves to help mommy workout. She loves to add weight to my push-ups and resistance to my sit ups! It’s hard getting outside to workout with her because a stroller is so cumbersome, I end up skipping workouts. I need something to help staying active especially with an upcoming move from Texas to Ohio.

  242. Jenn - April 28, 2015

    Right now I just use it around the house and when we’re outside with my toddler. This one looks awesome to use for actual workouts!

  243. beth - April 28, 2015

    Whether using this carrier for getting a workout in or simply putting them on your back to keep them from getting under my feet while trying to cook dinner, this would be heaven sent for this momma!

  244. Jacqueline H. - April 28, 2015

    Walking. But never thought of doing work outs while baby wearing

  245. Ashleigh Walter - April 28, 2015

    This carrier looks great! I’d love to be able to work out with my little girl on my back!

  246. Jessica - April 28, 2015

    I just recently lost 20lbs with lots of hard work and the help of you and Chris. We found out we were pregnant a few weeks ago and SURPRISE we are having twins. So now we have had to adjust pure budgeting since we need 2 of most things. Our goal is to stay as active as we can through this pregnancy but also drop it all after the pregnancy and we will need some ergos to help make that possible! We also have 3&4 year year old VERY ACTIVE boys at home already!

  247. Nicole - April 28, 2015

    i wear my sweet girl everyday. I wear her for extra weight while walking. Sometimes I do extra exercises while big bro is playing at the park! I wear her with a tight core and it’s working…Inches are shedding! 🙂

  248. Gina - April 28, 2015

    I am having my first baby in September and carriers are the way we are going! Not only is it great strength training for me post pregnancy, it encourages bonding. We will be ready to adventure out, once little man strengthens his core, for hikes in Prescott, Spring training next year, and walks around our neighborhood in Surprise, AZ.

  249. Heather Sabatino - April 28, 2015

    I’ve used my carrier to vacuum (which is kind of like a work out:-) This carrier seems much more comfortable to exercise with. These are great tips for ways to exercise!

  250. Ashley Ojeda - April 28, 2015

    I would love the ergobaby carrier so I can be more active with my little girl! I’m working on improving my body image so I don’t pass down my negative self thoughts to my precious baby girl! Thank you for all your motivation, I love following you and Chris!
    Thanks,
    Ashley

  251. Phyllis jones - April 28, 2015

    I would love to win this, I’m finding that with my 3rd its a lot harder to lose the baby weight and balance my time. This would be perfect, I could take the kids to the park, strap my baby on and get my workout in while the older kids play. Pick me to win!

  252. marcie - April 28, 2015

    I need this carrier been trying to be more active to get healthy for my baby girl 🙂 my motivation is to be my daughter’s insperation.

  253. Andriana - April 28, 2015

    I don’t have a carrier as of now. But with 2 small kids and 1 on the way it sure would help make workouts more possible. I would take it on walks and definetly take it to the park for a quick “weighted” work out.

  254. carli - April 28, 2015

    I don’t know what to say so I can win this; but, this would be a dream true. With 3.5yr old 18 month and newborn it would be so helpful to have a nice carrier. It would be easier to go out and about and to exercise. You guys inspire me keep up the good work. This would be a dream come true.

  255. cait - April 28, 2015

    I wear my baby everyday I would absolutely love this!

  256. Brittany - April 28, 2015

    This is awesome! Thanks for sharing! I nanny 3 little ones and am constantly looking for ways to squeeze in a workout during our busy days and make it fun for them too. Can’t wait to try this! Just have to get a baby carrier! I really enjoyed your post about the ergo, I have tried them before and love them but the family I work for does not have one. It would be so much easier than their huge double stroller.

  257. Cortney - April 28, 2015

    You’re gorgeous by the way! So inspirational! I am due in August with my second little girl and I honestly feel so blessed my first was a miracle baby weighing at 3 pounds prematurely. I have dedicated this pregnancy to stay as healthy as I can including working out 4-5 days a week and eating healthy. This will def help me stay on track after I have the baby!

  258. Dora - April 28, 2015

    I don’t have a carrier at the moment. I Would love to win it! I could use it to stay motivated and have no excuse not to workout! My daughter would love it too! She loves to be held ❤️

  259. Gina - April 28, 2015

    These are great workout ideas! I’m always excited to find new ways to include my boys (twins& big bro) in leading a healthy lifestyle.

  260. Sarah - April 28, 2015

    Currently I have used a carrier to walk. I love all the ideas you’ve shared! Please keep sharing! Little Miss Lola and I would love to win a new Ergo!

  261. Megan Patterson - April 28, 2015

    part of my workout is squatting to pick up one kid while holding the other. My hands are never empty. Going to the park and using whatever equipment is there to workout is my go to.

  262. Kara - April 28, 2015

    I would love to use this with my 12 month old while I am walking/working out. I could also take him with me to my bodyfit class I teach! Looks very comfy on both of you!

  263. michele - April 28, 2015

    I never thought I would have a use for a baby carrier. But I gained a lot while pregnant with my son. Finally started to lose it with hard work and got pregnant with my daughter. She is two weeks old and I have already started to lose again. A carrier would be easier than a stroller on my dirt roads.

  264. Anna - Nicole - April 28, 2015

    I would love this. I have been having trouble with my weight since I had my beautiful babygirl. Gained 50 pounds with my pregnancy and now 70 pounds over my per pregnancy weight. Having trouble losing weight 30 mins of cardio a day is not working so far. Walking at the park and around the neighborhood would be great with this.

  265. Margarita - April 28, 2015

    I don’t have a carrier but I put them in a stroller and go for walks. I try to do a hill or something so I am pushing their weight and pulling their weight. Have a two year old and 8 month old

  266. Danielle - April 28, 2015

    Right now my baby is 6 months and I try to get my workout in while he is napping. This isn’t skesys easy b/c there are so many things on my to do list. Having a carrier would make things easier while he was awake.
    Hope I win!!
    You are such an inspiration!

  267. Brittany Correa - April 28, 2015

    I loved baby wearing with my son wish I would of done more while working out. With our second baby on the way I look forward to baby wearing again and applying your techniques to help work off the baby weight.

  268. Casie - April 28, 2015

    I love to wear my baby walking! She loves to be outside! Would love to have this carrier!

  269. Laura - April 28, 2015

    I would use the ergo for walks, hikes and laundry. With renting, our laundry is in the basement separate from our living area. Perfect solution!

  270. Nicole Fisher - April 28, 2015

    Due with my second child in September.

    My first born is almost 14 so I didn’t have a cool carrier with my first pregnancy. Gained 80lbs the first go around and 12 years later finally lost it.

    Starting active this time around. A carrier would be great for hikes!

  271. Kate Downing - April 28, 2015

    I wear my 1 year old in a wrap but would love a performance carrier like this that is made for working out! My daughter loves to be worn during our workouts and even claps and cheers after our sets 🙂

  272. Sarah - April 28, 2015

    Chase my four kiddos everyday and many times they’re on the floor next to me working out right along side. Quentin my 13 month old likes to be on board when I’m doing squats or sit-ups. 🙂

  273. Shantel - April 28, 2015

    Fellow Arizonan here! I love babywearing and love to use the carriers while working out. Baby is plenty of extra weight! 😉

  274. Heather W. - April 28, 2015

    I would love to have one of these carriers! My mother and sister swear by them! Thank you for all your inspiration!

  275. Katy - April 28, 2015

    I would love to have one of these! My third son is almost three months old. With summer approaching, I know my older two boys will be outside and on the move. A carrier like this would definitely help me keep up with them!

  276. Raya - April 28, 2015

    I love the idea of baby wearing to increase your workout’s intensity! I can’t wait to try it!

  277. Jennifer Steinacker - April 28, 2015

    I’ve always wanted to do this! Baby #3 is here and I’m ready to lose the baby weight and show my children that healthy living is fun!

  278. Shalala Morell - April 28, 2015

    to use their weight to give me more resistance on walks and visiting the zoo

  279. jennifer Garcia - April 28, 2015

    I would love to win. My baby is 2 months & would love to baby wear & workout with her.

  280. Ailsa - April 28, 2015

    I’d use the ergo to hike with my daughter and take our dog out with us. No better way to explore places and gain the benefits of fresh air and exercise.

  281. Devin - April 28, 2015

    I love to wear my ergo & baby while walking and hiking with our dog!

  282. Erin New - April 28, 2015

    I wear mine grocery shopping and hiking!! Never thought to wear it for a workout!!! I would love the performance to do that!!!!!

  283. Rachel - April 28, 2015

    My baby wearing workout mostly consist of my nine month old in the wrap Carrier I have chasing after big sisters on their bikes. Baby wearing became a must for me, how else do you chase after the big ones? I’m interested in trying a more structured carrier.

  284. Holly - April 28, 2015

    i would love to win this! I do not have a carrier and still have soo much baby weight to lose and this would be so helpful with working out and walks!!!! Yes please!

  285. Sara - April 28, 2015

    I would love this! I am so looking for something to do with my wee man which will also help me get back in shape!

  286. Brittany - April 28, 2015

    Love these workout ideas! Thanks for all your motivation.

  287. Peggy - April 28, 2015

    Would love for my daughter in law and their 2 month old. She loves to exercise and wants to be able to keep baby close as she does.

  288. Stephanie C - April 28, 2015

    I love this!! My 2yr old loves to dance and walk and this would be so great to put my 3mo old son in while we do those other things! Thanks for being so generous and giving one away! Xo

  289. Kristen H. - April 28, 2015

    I have a 2 year old and pregnant with #2 🙂 I don’t have a carrier and I think this would be amazing to help with everyday life and to help get this body back after baby. I can take my toddler to the park and excersise myself with the baby, hikes or even just dance around the house!

  290. chelsea - April 28, 2015

    i use my ergo on hikes at the White Tank mountains and pretty much every where I go so I can have my hands free. I love it my friend got me addicted, however mine is the clothe one so it gets hot.

  291. Vanessa - April 28, 2015

    I like to do old school basketball drills! Diagnol shuffles, walking lunges, high knees…etc. Walking around also helps with my posture I think!

  292. Illiana - April 28, 2015

    I love my carrier!! I was a wrap girl till he was 6 months then he preferred our SSC. I’m waiting on a print I love to get a Lenny Lamb ( so soft and supportive )
    Thank you for sharing.

  293. Jenni Thoele - April 28, 2015

    I would use my for hikes, cleaning the house and working out at the park!!

  294. Sara - April 28, 2015

    We would LOVE an EGRO! especially since we have twins and two older kids (5, 3 and twins who are 1). I have one babe who insists on being carried everywhere and i need free hands! i love both of you and can’t wait for Extreme Weightloss to start this spring! Thank you for all your encouragement!

  295. Lauren Barthle - April 28, 2015

    Ooooo I’d LOVE to win a carrier as awesome as that one! Mine is simple but not great as far as versatility goes. Heidi I enjoy reading your workouts with Ruby cause that’s how us mommies gotta get it done! No excuses 🙂

  296. Heidi - April 28, 2015

    I LOVE to wear my baby girl (11 months)!!! We do LOTS of yard work, mowing, raking, picking up sticks (we live in the woods!) I also love to wear her while I vacuum, clean the house and any time she is sick or cranky! Babywearing is an amazing blessing!!!

  297. Sherry - April 28, 2015

    You have an amazing family! I would love to hear more about which carriers you’ve used and how you found them. As someone who is going to be a new mom in October I would love the info and it would help with all the crazy overwhelming research and misleading advice on carriers that are healthy for parents and baby!! Thanks for all your great blog posts and instagraming.

  298. Erin Mullis - April 28, 2015

    I would LOVE to be able to have a carrier! I have a 4 year old who loves to bike ride while I walk or run, and with another daughter coming any day now, it would be amazing! I find so much inspiration from your blog! Thanks for the positive message you promote!

  299. Lauren - April 28, 2015

    I am 38 weeks with baby number two! I am looking forward to getting this post-baby body swimsuit ready once he arrives. An Ergobaby Performance Carrier would be a huge blessing to have so that I can wear our little guy while working out!

  300. Lindsey skirtich - April 28, 2015

    I have three girls under 4, all who I am encouraging to get involved in health and fitness. As a mom, my role in fitness it so important in shaping who they become and how much they care about their health and working out with them helps me do that. Currently, I do not have a carrier for our youngest and this Ergo would help me to show my girls how important it is to stay active, no matter what!

  301. Brittany - April 28, 2015

    Exercise is an extremely important part of my life and I love being able to include my children in that in hopes that they will learn how important it is to take care of yourself. I walk often with my dog, 2 kids in the double jogging stroller and my 5 month old strapped to my back. This carrier would seriously help me get out there even more and would protect my back from the harm some other carriers do. Love everything you and Chris stand for! Thanks for doing what you do!

  302. Lindsay McPhail - April 28, 2015

    I want thissss! I loved my old ergo baby that happened to fly out of a bottom compartment of our motorbike on our maiden voyage. Turns out those crazy people we thought were really friendly waiving to us at 11:00 at night were trying to tell us something… As a mom of four my only workouts happen with my two year old in tow … I will spend the summer hiking new trails if I win this bad boy!!:):)

  303. Sara - April 28, 2015

    I’m sure any little one would love to take part in a workout like that! I was doing push ups holding onto the side of my kids trampoline today while my children were jumping. Try to squeeze anything in as a I can. Maximizing my time!

  304. Jessica - April 28, 2015

    Love the look of this carrier and it would come in extremely handy. Our family loves getting outdoors and working out so it would make things a lot easier.

  305. Lindsay - April 28, 2015

    would love love love to win one. I have always worked out, but recently have been getting serious about it. I hurt my ankle last week and realized how much I actually crave my workout time. With my next baby I know that this ergo carrier would be so nice to do lunges, hiking, and all the fun exercises you demonstrated! You inspire me and can’t wait to learn more from you!

  306. Jami McBride - April 28, 2015

    I would love to be able to win the baby carrier for my dear friend. She just had a baby & she is obese. I love her very much & I want to see get healthy. Please help me help her!

  307. Danielle - April 28, 2015

    We have an ergo and we use it all the time and it’s great for hiking. I would love to win this for my sister who is expecting.

  308. Kathy - April 28, 2015

    im a 55 year old Grandma and sit my 17 month old Grandson 4 days a week. I would love the ergo baby carrier to keep my little guy close while working to get back into shape following some weight gain and depression.
    Wish me luck.

  309. Anna Summers - April 28, 2015

    I do not have a baby carrier at the moment. I just put my baby in her stroller and push her everywhere that we walk while outside. I would love to have the carrier I think it would be much easier to exercise with her that way.. Especially walking all of these uphill trails where I live!

    • Erin - April 28, 2015

      i used to wear my baby boy all day, every day…it was the only thing that would keep him from crying and me from losing my sanity!! I credit my baby wearing with helping my postpartum depression. The carrier that I had though was cheaper and pretty rough on the back. I would LOVE a solid carrier that won’t bring me pain!!

  310. Naomi Holland - April 28, 2015

    I would use it to walk and hike the trails!!!!

  311. Jennifer Durham - April 28, 2015

    I love everything about this! I have struggled to find ways to workout while home with my daughter. This not only appears to be a great system but love all the workouts posted as well!! Love you and Chris too!! Daily inspiration! THANK YOU!

  312. Theresa - April 28, 2015

    What a great way to give back! My daughter is 2 (30lbs) and physically disabled. So I carry her way more than a “typical” 2yo. She is currently going through serial, full leg castings to stretch her club foot back out and a carrier like this would be such a helpful piece of equipment for us! I could carry her with me on our walks instead of a stroller. 🙂 We like to have family walks in the evenings, and I would love to be able to easily carry her! She loves seeing up at our level 😉

  313. Joanna Johnson - April 28, 2015

    I would love to win an ErgoBaby!! My now 14th month old was a very colicky baby and most times the only time she would stop crying was being held, while bouncing on a yoga ball. At the time we could only afford a cheap carrier but even that she hated because it wasn’t all that comfortable. It would be nice to have something that is comfortable for my back as I was rear-ended when I was pregnant.

  314. Miranda T. - April 28, 2015

    This is a perfect way to get your exercise in and still be with your baby! I have a 5 month old and love babywearing but have never been able to try the back carry yet. I need an ergo!!!

  315. Jenny Anderson - April 28, 2015

    i live in Seattle and I am so ready for summer here! I need s baby carrier so I can show my 4 month old baby boy all the gorgeous sites in the Pacific Northwest!!

  316. Michelle Cavazos - April 28, 2015

    I love your review and I so want one of these to workout with my baby girl ! We would have so much fun and I hope to win one. 🙂 inspirational

  317. Maddy Edwards - April 28, 2015

    I love wearing my baby around the house and outside. I like squatting, lunging and walking around. I have a 18mn old and a 6 month old. So plenty of squatting going around here!

  318. Stephanie Walker. - April 28, 2015

    we babywear while hiking and my one year old loves it!

  319. Mel - April 28, 2015

    You are so inspiring! I love the idea of getting my workout in with my baby right there with me! Such great ideas. Thank you for your always family friendly workouts and website!

  320. Heather - April 28, 2015

    Oh my gosh I would LOVE to have this carrier. We are a family of 6, love hiking and being active! Thanks for the opportunity Heidi! You’re so inspirational!!

  321. Inna - April 28, 2015

    i desperately need one! It’s impossible to excessive with a 6 month old baby in my arms at all times 🙁

  322. Holly - April 28, 2015

    I had no clue this existed! This carrier would be awesome to put my baby in and get some exercise with my toddler!!! I don’t quite have time to workout because my baby (and her sister before her) nurse every 45 mins to an hour… If I wear her, I am able to stretch feelings out a bit. She refuses to eat food and will not take a bottle. Haha! Not much gets done around here!!! : )

  323. Leah - April 28, 2015

    I use mine for family hikes and also strolls around the mall. My kiddo loves the mall!!! Not to shop but to run laps. I carry my baby and powerwalk to keep up with my 2 year old.

  324. CourtneyB - April 28, 2015

    Love wearing my baby while out for power walks, doing lunges and squats too!

  325. Emily - April 28, 2015

    I would love this. I didn’t have it for my first baby and it would be so nice to have it for the next baby coming in November. 🙂

  326. Alena - April 28, 2015

    love this carrier! Would be so awesome to do these workouts with baby!

  327. Jill - April 28, 2015

    Hi! I would love to win this as we are planning to start our family and over the past year I have lost over 30 pounds. Once we have babies I would love to have a safe carrier to stay active with my baby and stay healthy!

    Go Team Powell!

  328. Stacy - April 28, 2015

    Having one of these would definitely help me get a longer workout!

  329. Katie - April 28, 2015

    I love this! My husband, injured Army Ranger, is in a wheelchair about 75% of the time due to a brain injury after a car accident. We have a 6 month old baby boy and workouts are picking up but a lot need to be done with the babes in tow. Also lots of time pushing my husband in his chair and baby in the front pack! This ergo looks amazing and I’d def use it

  330. Sara Hinton - April 28, 2015

    I’m 7 weeks postpartum and just got cleared by my dr to start working out. I’d love to start back with my newborn in tow! As he grows, the amount of weight I’m working with and the intensity of my workout would increase!

  331. Daphne Kline - April 28, 2015

    My husband owns a shop about a mile from our house. I take the double jogging stroller and run up there to have the girls see him after we get home from daycare, and then we run back home!

  332. Katie B - April 28, 2015

    I have a 20 month old & a baby due any day! An Ergo would help me to get active again after this new addition & help me get back into shape while playing & being active with my kiddos!!! I would LOVE to win this amazing carrier!!!

  333. Rachel - April 28, 2015

    I would love to have one of these. I have a very active 2 year old and we are about to go on vacation so something like this would be great

  334. Abigail goeringer - April 28, 2015

    Hi Heidi,
    I would LOVE to win this ergo!!
    Me and my little would be strapped all day!!! I’m just now getting into the motivation and habit of working out, id love to incorporate my son!
    Xoxo

  335. Krystal - April 28, 2015

    Just had baby #6…so need this carrier and this workout!

  336. Kimberly Tiwater - April 28, 2015

    I add one of my twin boys for some extra resistance on my walks, front or back, whichever they need that day 🙂 30 pounds definitely adds more resistance!

  337. Lindsay - April 28, 2015

    I have an older Ergo and love it! Baby wearing makes life so much easier and baby loves it too 🙂

  338. Carolyn S. - April 28, 2015

    I would love to have this. I have been looking for something I could carry my son with. I live by a state park that has a castle and stairs that walk from castle to natural spring. Been wanting to take my older ones but I know I can’t just carry my little one. This would be so awesome for this summer to take kids to HaHa Tonka and some of the other state parks around!! Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  339. Jessica - April 28, 2015

    I hope I win… I would love to take my daughter on the hiking trail my husband and I would do every week before we were blessed with her.

  340. Nicole M - April 28, 2015

    I need one of these bad!!!!! Would love to go on hikes with family but my 13 month old is hard to hold onto just carrying in my arms.

  341. Brittnee - April 28, 2015

    I need this! I am down 31 pounds, since having my baby in September, 23 more to go to reach my right weight. This would be so much fun for my little man and me:)

  342. Denise - April 28, 2015

    Having the triplets in the house this would really boost my work out. Having one on my back to do some extra exersies including a hike or two. It would also give me some one on one bonding time with each one of them at different times. This would be very useful.

  343. Lovelyn - April 28, 2015

    I would love to win this so I can work on being healthier for my family. I think being able to bring my son with me while I work out will be a tremendous help because I won’t have to constantly find a babysitter or lug around a big stroller.

  344. Tracy - April 28, 2015

    I currently am pregnant but would LOVE the carrier to have for once the baby is here. My husband and I live in the PNW and go on hikes, beach walks, and to the park all the time. The carrier would be a perfect way to get our little one involved and help me get my fitness back to where it was before.

  345. Morgan Chrisman - April 28, 2015

    It’s finally beginning to look like spring in Ohio and I’m ready to get outdoors with my 13 month old! I do all my workouts at home but would love to try some of these workouts at our community park or even in my own backyard 🙂

  346. Kayleigh - April 28, 2015

    You simply inspire all around you by your beauty, health and most importantly to me, your family. You are an amazing lady. Thank you for being real and honest and serving so many!

  347. Kirsten - April 28, 2015

    I don’t have one, but I imagine I’d use it on famiky hikes or anytime I’m outside playing with the older kidlets.

  348. Cynthia - April 28, 2015

    I have an Ergo that I bought used when my son was born, we love it! I’d LOVE to try out the Ergo Performance for our workouts at the park! He loves being carried in it & I get an extra 23lbs for my workouts, it’s a win-win!!

  349. Antonia - April 28, 2015

    i would love to win this!! I am due with my second baby girl in June and would love to use it to work out and lose the baby weight! We love to go for hikes and I love the suggested workout in the post above!

  350. Angie McClinton - April 28, 2015

    That carrier looks amazing! It would be great to have a carrier like that to bring my youngest along with me as I workout. I have four amazing kids and my three older ones love working out alongside me, but baby sister misses out on the action! My kiddos are 6.5, 4.5, 2.5, and 7 months.

  351. Darlene Mills - April 28, 2015

    I would love to have one of these so that I can walk on the days that I keep my granddaughter.

  352. Sarah Lehnert - April 28, 2015

    I am co-sponsoring a baby expo in Juneau, Alaska and would love to give away an Ergo to one of our attendants! We will be hosting a baby wearing workshop but don’t have any prizes. This could really be an excellent demonstration, maybe you and Chris can come up here and teach a workout!?! Give away an Ergo. Awesome-sauce!!!

  353. Taylor - April 28, 2015

    As a nanny and soon to be first time mom, I can say I love carriers. I’ve always been a fan of ergo and have toted the kiddos I’ve nannied over the years all over. I’ve always loved walking to the park with the babies in the carrier. Sometimes two babies in two carriers at the same time. I’ve used the carriers to do squats, lunges, booty kicks and power walking. They are awesome for anyone but especially mommies who are trying to hold their babies close and will be active! I would love to have one for our new baby when he or she arrives!

  354. Christen Peacock - April 28, 2015

    My girls (5 & 2) and I love to hike. My 2 yr old gets tired quicker than we do so I end up carrying her on my shoulders. We also walk to school to pick up my 5 yr old so this would be sooo beneficial! Love the powell pack! Thanks for the motivation!

  355. Brittany - April 28, 2015

    Baby #4 is due July 2nd! Never used this but would love to give this a try. So many workouts to do to get back in shape after being pregnant.

  356. Kelli Marquez - April 28, 2015

    I hook my babe in the carrier for walks, hikes, and sometimes when I’m doing chores around the house and she’s acting fussy and wants to be held. Can’t wait to try a mommy and me workout!

  357. Samantha - April 28, 2015

    I love to walk and run! I try to do at least one half marathon a year and am pregnant with my first child! This would be the perfect carrier for my new little love to be to maintain my healthy lifestyle and workouts!

  358. Ann Stoves - April 28, 2015

    My comment : Today was a beautiful day. Tomorrow will be even better.

  359. Shelli - April 28, 2015

    This carrier would help strengthen my back and be super handy for shopping and hiking.

  360. Amanda B - April 28, 2015

    I’m expecting my first baby in July. So I don’t have a baby carrier yet, so one would be great to get active after baby gets here. 🙂

  361. cheyenne - April 28, 2015

    Looks like a great wrap and a good workout. Would love this! Third baby due next month this would help with getting back in shape! Plus I will be officially out numbered:)

  362. Allison Boone - April 28, 2015

    I love these workouts!! I just had a baby girl about 4 weeks ago and can’t wait to start working out again. I would love one of these so she can tag along while I workout.
    Thanks for an awesome giveaway and for being such an inspiration. You are beautiful on the inside and out.

  363. Susan - April 28, 2015

    My daughter loves to be carried. I get so much done when I am able to wear her. This workout looks amazing. I’ve done stroller workouts but I think my daughter would love this baby wearing workout 🙂

  364. Julie - April 28, 2015

    This is absolutely genius!
    I have a busy (very) busy soon to be 3 year old boy and 12 month old baby girl whom this would be just perfect for.

  365. Erin - April 28, 2015

    I would loooove to do this workout with my 10-month-old!

  366. Breanne - April 28, 2015

    As an active mom of three, this would be awesome to have as we prepare to adopt kiddos number four! Once we bring our son home from Ethiopia, I will be wearing him all the time to help him with bonding.

  367. Kamala - April 28, 2015

    I don’t have one but all the more reason to win, right? 🙂 I would use the carrier to workout and lose that baby weight but also to do the endless list of household tasks. I’m all about multitasking so having an Ergobaby carrier would make my life SOO much easier and more fulfilling. I’m sure of it. 🙂

  368. Casandra Pallone - April 28, 2015

    I absolutely love this! Thank you for sharing!!

  369. shannon - April 28, 2015

    Would love this for our little guy. Can’t wait to get the pre baby body back and then some!

  370. Bethany A - April 28, 2015

    My baby doesn’t love the stroller, so for long walks I wear her while I push my 3 year old. An Ergo Performance would be soooooo nice!!!

  371. Stephanie Powell - April 28, 2015

    Hello Heidi and the rest of the Powell Pack! I took your recommendation on the ergo baby carrier and I couldn’t be happier with the decision. They were a little pricey for our budget but I was able to find a used one that I can use until my son is a little bigger and ready for the next one 🙂 I wear baby any chance I get! Walking the neighborhood, hiking, working out- squats, lunges, etc., chores around the house, and shopping. The ergo baby has allowed me to stay active and be close to my son. I am officially down 55 pounds postpartum and would love the opportunity to win a new ergo baby! Thank you for you wonderful workout tips while baby wearing, I will definitely put them to use!

  372. Shae - April 28, 2015

    I love working out with my sweet baby boy!

  373. Alissa - April 28, 2015

    Awesome! Would love to have this.

  374. Trish - April 28, 2015

    I would love to win this to carry my grandson around! Just another way to get more exercise in and be close to the little guy

  375. Andrea Williams - April 28, 2015

    This would be awesome for me because my baby never wants to be put down. I could get much more done with one of these baby’s.

  376. Kristen - April 28, 2015

    I haven’t ever done baby wearing for a workout but we are currently trying for a second child. Perfect time to start!

  377. Lynda - April 28, 2015

    I am currently less than 2 months away from having baby#1. Thank you so much for giving me ideas for post prego workouts yah involve my little one-this is awesome! Would love to win this!!!!

  378. Ana Schanlaub - April 28, 2015

    I would love this. We are getting ready to have baby #2 and I am needing ways to get out and get more active. My toddler keeps me busy and I know adding another will be just as busy! I would love to try a carrier out so I could do different things with each of them.

  379. Alissa - April 28, 2015

    This would be awesome! It would enable my daughter and I to go many more places together!

  380. Michelle - April 28, 2015

    I’ve never been able to afford “extras” for when we have had our babies. Would love to win this one though for after baby #3 gets here in June! This would definitely be doable!

  381. Liz - April 28, 2015

    I would love one of these!! OMG Heidi you make it look so easy! You look amazing!!

  382. Christina - April 28, 2015

    I enjoy wearing my sweet little 7 month old everywhere. My favorite times are on long walks and while shopping. I love looking down to see her beautiful eyes looking up at me.

  383. Emily - April 28, 2015

    My husband and I are new foster parents to a 10 month old little girl. I currently walk around our lake 3 to 4 times a week. The walk is 3 miles. After the walk, I take our 3 year old and 10 month old to the park to play. This carrier would be so much fun and let our 10 month old feel like she free while still being secure.

  384. Hayley Hendrickson - April 28, 2015

    I am a new momma to our sweet 2 month old baby maddy! Being a stay at home mom, we LOVE to get out of the house and take our workouts outside! Would absolutely love to win this carrier, I am a serious baby wearing fan! What better way to teach your kids a healthy lifestyle than to workout with them?!

  385. Amber - April 28, 2015

    My baby is due Sunday. Can’t wait to start working out with him like this!

  386. Hannah Sholes - April 28, 2015

    I am having my third baby in July and I want to be able to jog and power walk with three kids. I only have a jogging stroller and my older boys are 4 and 2 and still want to sit in one so having this kind of a baby carrier would be great!

  387. Jill V - April 28, 2015

    An Ergo carrier would be SO wonderful for our little man on the way! I could workout with him & walk the dog 🙂 Love this!!!

  388. Katie Jean - April 28, 2015

    i would love to win this carrier so that when I have this baby in September I can take him or her with me and get back in to shape!

  389. Rachel - April 28, 2015

    I would love to win one of these for one of my dear best friends who is expecting her first baby in October! She bought me my Ergo performance carrier and I want her to have the same.

  390. Kristin - April 28, 2015

    I used my carrier to go on hikes… Loved to get out into the fresh air… I have 4 baby showers to go to in the month of June and I would love to bless one of the mommy’s with this… She would love to get out in the fresh air and go on hikes with her new baby

  391. Hayley hansen - April 28, 2015

    I would love to have one!

  392. Shay - April 28, 2015

    I would love to use a carrier with my newborn when I’m at the park with my 4 year old!

  393. Ashley - April 28, 2015

    I am a mom to two beautiful kiddos, my daughter just turned two and my son is 7 1/2 months. They’re 17 months apart, so needless to say I am always on the move. We are constantly outside, whether at the beach or parks or just hanging in the backyard. Since having my little guy I’ve been struggling to get that baby weight off. I will say my upper strength is great (my son is already 21lbs!). But now I’ve started working on the mid and lower half. Through brisk walks/light jogs to squats to lunges, I’m always trying to do something. I am now to the point where I’d love to have the challenge of the baby workouts. Little man would love the up downs and my sweetness would love the mimicking (she’s totally into playing mommy w her babies). I think this would be a great way to keep the kids active and moving with me :).

  394. Tabitha Mann - April 28, 2015

    I use my carrier for walks and will definitely be trying out some of the exercises you showed!

  395. Melissa - April 28, 2015

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Ergo!!! I loved baby wearing my daughters. I’d take evening walks every day after dinner while baby wearing, helping drop my baby weight. Needless to say, the spit up and washer got the best of my carrier. Dying to get my hands on a newer one. Love all that you and Chris do for others!! Amazing couple with a beautiful family.

  396. Amanda Coop - April 28, 2015

    I wear my carrier while cleaning and sometimes on walks.

  397. Gina Lynch - April 28, 2015

    I like to wear the baby on our after dinner walks around the neighborhood. I love the idea of the park workout though…looks fun!

  398. Nicole McClintock - April 28, 2015

    I would love love love this!! We already have and love our ergo but this could be perfect workouts for the park I love next door too! 🙂

  399. Sherri - April 28, 2015

    I need one of these! It’s a fantastic idea and looks very convenient!

  400. Angel Capps - April 28, 2015

    I am in the”I have 4 babies I love more than life” cool club just like you guys. Two of which have been diagnosed with SPD. My littles and I take a daily walk to help make life a little simpler for them. My littlest one is 8 months and boy could I use this carrier for him. It would make this busy momma’s life a little easier and help me loose this baby weight much faster;)

  401. Rachael Reis - April 28, 2015

    I have really wanted one of these, but have not purchased one yet! I would love to have one for the summer for walks, workouts, and yard sales 🙂

  402. Leah - April 28, 2015

    A great way to exercise – you can use the baby’s weight as resistance! Bonding + working out = perfect! 🙂

  403. Danielle - April 28, 2015

    Would love this! Newly pregnant and would love to use to get back into shape after the baby is here!!

  404. Lauren Ashbaugh - April 28, 2015

    Our family of three is going to be a family of 5 in just a couple weeks! We have a 4 year old daughter, and soon two baby boys!

    Your family is an inspiration in so many ways.

    I hope to inspire my girl and boys to live healthy lives and stay active. This carrier would allow me more freedom in what I will be able to with them.

  405. selma weisbein - April 28, 2015

    this would be amazing for my daughter in law who just had a cute little boy. they live in seattle where there are a lot of outdoors activities , parks and amazing hiking and instead of taking a bulky stroller why not take this cute baby carrier with the baby inside to add some resistance to her weight loss training post partum. love it.
    i would love to be the winner so that i can present her with this genius carrier.

  406. Honi - April 28, 2015

    I’d love to win this and give as a gift to a new mom in need. I loved my Ergo and miss wearing my kids! I loved wearing and snowshoeing! Follow you on FB! Lovely pictures!

  407. Concetta VelasqueZ - April 28, 2015

    I love wearing my baby!

  408. AngieB - April 28, 2015

    I wonder if this would fit me. I am afraid of buying a carrier and it not be big enough. After 14 yrs of trying I want to experience the joy of baby wearing and snuggling my baby all day

  409. Liz - April 28, 2015

    I wear mine for family hikes or just walking around the house while needing an extra set of hands while my baby wants to be held

  410. Shannon - April 28, 2015

    We are expecting our first baby in November! I love to go on walks right now, and think it would be awesome to take the little one with me to help keep me in shape. I also like all of the workouts you have posted above that can be done while baby wearing.

  411. Krystal - April 28, 2015

    I would absolutely love this carrier! I was just looking at this one. Expecting my 3rd baby and was just looking at this carrier. Have a sleepy wrap but it can be so hot!

  412. Pamela - April 28, 2015

    Heidi thanks for all the great tips! There is nothing better than exercising with baby!

  413. Kristina - April 28, 2015

    I would love this. We love hiking and outdoor activities but it can be difficult with a toddler. Not to mention, it is so hard to get a complete workout in without my to clinging to my legs. This would be a wonderful item for my family.

  414. Lindsay Smith - April 28, 2015

    I would use it everyday, it would be great to use while hiking with my daughter, it would be easier than trying to use a stroller. Also it would give me added resistance while walking.

  415. Natalie - April 28, 2015

    I wear mine for my daycare kids. Two in a stroller and one on me so I can still get in a walk during the day. 🙂

  416. Kasey - April 28, 2015

    I’m very lucky. My husband and I are both very active and 16 months ago I gave birth to a VERY active little boy. When he didn’t move, working out was easy. Now, it’s a bit harder. He’s active, remember? We all know that’s nice mommy talk for “into everything.” 🙂

    We have a backpack carrier that I bought for $20 at a garage sale. It does the job, but it just doesn’t feel secure enough for my liking. So, if I win this ErgoBaby carrier, I’m gonna wear that kid everywhere. Give me that extra 25 pounds! Lunges? Word. Squats? Yes! Modified push-ups? Do it! I can’t wait!!

  417. tiffany boyd - April 28, 2015

    I would love one of these to carry our youngest of our 6 children!!

  418. Kathleen - April 28, 2015

    I would love to give this as a special gift to a very important person in my life!!

    Thanks for all you and Chris do for everyone you meet!!

  419. Paula Lawhead - April 28, 2015

    We have a full hiking carrier that we take our little one out in. Any place we are going that our little one may enjoy, we put him in there. We even served dinner at a rescue mission with him in there – he and the homeless guests loved to wave and smile at each other! We feel it is important to have him along to experience as much of life together as possible. I love the look of the performance carrier. It would be much more functional for most of our outings than the great big hiking pack!

  420. Vanessa Leos - April 28, 2015

    I love you guys! I used to watch the show when I was pregnant and get SUPER emotional when the transformations were complete… 90% sure that was my crazy hormones. When I was pregnant, I ate till my hearts content. I am 4’11 and was 187 when I delivered. I was devastated with the weight gain. I nursed and weight feel off VERY slowly. 16 month later and I am still trying my hardest to get to my normal 130. My son hates the vacuum, he’s terrified of it, while cleaning, baby wearing is really my only way to get anything done. I wear him to fold and put laundry away, because let’s face it, you cannot clean with a toddler. No way, no how. I love wearing him, it makes me feel like super woman when I am done with my house chores and I have a sleeping 25 pounder on my back. I honestly enjoy the burn in my quads and hamstrings from all of the squating and walking. You are truly an inspiration!! You are my inspiration.

  421. Bethany Slagle - April 28, 2015

    I live in Redding, CA where it gets HOT!!! Would love this Ergo! My kids live in ours!

  422. Tara - April 28, 2015

    I love your workouts and Facebook posts. Your healthy family is such an inspiration! Please don’t stop!

  423. Nicole - April 28, 2015

    I could really use a carrier like this for my 4th baby who likes being held all of the time

  424. Nicole Bennion - April 28, 2015

    love this idea!! I look forward doing this with my daughter! Thank you!

  425. Bitty - April 28, 2015

    oohhh me! I wanna win this really bad so I can do this workout when I deliver this baby that Im brewing up. 🙂 Looks fun!

  426. Lindsay - April 28, 2015

    I would use this when I walk. I love it because I can take my dog as well and not have to worry about a stroller getting in the way or the dog pulling me away from the stroller. My daughter would love this because she likes when I hold her and she can see things on my level.

  427. Tracie - April 28, 2015

    I would love an Ergo! I would love to be able to carry my toddler while walking my other 2 kids to school. What a great workout that would be! Oh, the things I could do and get done!?!?

  428. Samantha - April 28, 2015

    This would be amazing for my toddler. She is 16 months old and quite the handful. I’m also pregnant with baby girl number 3 and she’s due to arrive any day now. I love going on hikes with my girls and this would be so helpful with losing all the baby weight!

  429. Lindsay - April 28, 2015

    I love the Ergo and it has been a life saver with my son! We love going hiking and walking on the boardwalk. I enjoy the “extra weight” to get me through my workouts, plus I get to bond with my little guy at the same time!

  430. Theresa - April 28, 2015

    I’m due with baby number 2 in October. I love to babywear and would love to workout with my little ones. I would use the carrier daily for walks and SQUATS!!!! (IIn hopes to get my legs and booty in nice shape) 😉

  431. Jessica - April 28, 2015

    I have been during for one of these since baby #2… Now baby #3 is on the way! With good nutrition and exercise I’ve managed to get the weight off. Not with a 3rd I could use an extra set of hands!! Please oh please pick me!!!

  432. Liz - April 28, 2015

    Oh and I’m a walker with the carrier I have. This would be great to do some muscle work!

  433. Louise - April 28, 2015

    I’m using a borrowed Ergo to wear my 4 month old. I wear her to walk to and from Big Sister’s school and attend local events. Now that the weather is nicer I’m looking to get outside more and walk farther. This workout looks like something to work toward for me.

  434. Anna Rushton - April 28, 2015

    Great idea! Just starting our family and I am already thinking about how to get back in shape – this would be a huge help.

  435. Suzy Que - April 28, 2015

    I love wearing baby on long walks or to keep up with my 2 older boys. I only have a front carrier but would love this carrier for wearing him on my back as he gets older.

  436. Kimberly Griswold - April 28, 2015

    We soooo need this for our trip to see Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstone Park in July for the hikes and the workouts I can start doing since I will be graduating from college in 6 days!! Full time work and full time school has been too crazy for me!

  437. Liz - April 28, 2015

    Looks fantastic. I’ll definitely be a chipper!! lol

  438. Amy Lamoureux - April 28, 2015

    I have been watching last season of Extreme Makeover on my maternity leave and its inspired me! I have been walking with my new baby everyday. An ergo would make it even more challenging! Plus i could get my husband involved so we can get healthy for our little girl! You are an amazing role model!

  439. Marissa De La Paz - April 28, 2015

    I usually baby wear when doing chores around the house and also when going hiking. I hadn’t even thought of working out while baby wearing. This would be such a great help! Thanks for always giving such great advice.

  440. Stefanie Mann - April 28, 2015

    First I ❤️ you and Chris And love what you are doing for America!! It’s got to be so hard but so rewarding at the same time! I would love to win this just because I love being outside and just had my second baby and seeing how much harder it is getting my workout in and even going for a walk gets tricky cause my baby hates the stroller. I would love to be able to wear this and go walking and workout outside!

  441. Tricia Campos - April 28, 2015

    I have started using my carrier to take walks around the neighborhood with my 7 week old, and we’ve got some summer hikes planned.

  442. Michelle - April 28, 2015

    I would love the performance Ergo! I use the bjorn all the time to have my hands free so I can have my baby with me but continue to get things done around the house or a little exercise. It is great for hiking outdoors or even walking on the treadmill. Thanks for posting the workout options!!

  443. Alexis - April 28, 2015

    I would use this every day. I carry my 12 month old on my hip all day literally. He won’t let me put him down. My back is killing me lol.

  444. Clara - April 28, 2015

    Can’t wait to get some good workouts in after I have my first little one this July! I want an ergobaby so badly!

  445. Lynde - April 28, 2015

    im soon to be a single mom and I was what people would call a gym rat. I was heavy all my life and finally two years ago I took my life into my hands to live a healthy life. With my pregnancy I’ve been not able to workout as much. Baby has other plans. But I have a goal that I’m going to get back to being active as soon as I’m ready. I’m due June 2 nd and hope by July to get back to my cardio and running and my cross training. It would be nice to have her with me as much as possible.

  446. irene shutters - April 28, 2015

    I just had my first baby and went from 370lbs in a wheelchair to 225 (last Wednesdays weigh in) and training for a spartan race! My husband has even gotten active and is doing the Pittsburgh Half Marathon on Sunday. One of these would be great to take my Maggie out. She loves being active with me. At 9 months old she drags my 10lb kettlebell around the living room and helps me with yoga. She’s my inspiration and I will never be able to afford one, so fingers crossed!

  447. Amanda Morgan - April 28, 2015

    I would love to have one of these for my new baby that is due in October!

  448. Lyndsi - April 28, 2015

    My Hayzel would love this to go hiking with mommy.

  449. Jennifer - April 28, 2015

    I would love to have a carrier like this. Tried hiking with the one I have and didn’t go so well!! With having two much older boys, baby Luke & I need to be able to keep up with all the activities this summer!!

  450. Rachael Barrett - April 28, 2015

    What an awesome carrier! I’ve never seen an Ergo like this before!! I love baby wearing, unfortunately, my 19 month at 30 pounds of muscle has outgrown our carrier. I love holding him during work outs, by my arms kill me after a while. This ergo is genius, and I would love to use it! How awesome is it that you get to show your child to be healthy and exercise by wearing them and having them do the exercise you! And, bonus, you get to hold your baby close the whole time and give them as well as yourself all the benefits of wearing your baby! I love the attachment parenting while being a fitmom!! #wearallbabies #fitmom #fitfam

  451. lindsay - April 28, 2015

    I need this so bad! My son is 18 months and can’t walk due to hypotonia. I would love to take him with me on walks since he gets restless in stroller.

  452. Hermanus - April 28, 2015

    as a stay at home dad I would really put this carrier to great use motivating fellow dad to be more active if they are stay at home dads as well. It would just be easier to move around and demonstrate different exercises with fellow parents .

  453. Mel - April 28, 2015

    You are an amazing woman, mother and wife! This would be awesome to have for our second baby girl due September 21st. The one we had with with baby girl #1 did not work well with exercising.

  454. Nichole - April 28, 2015

    I am currently pregnant and would love you use the carrier to go on walks and hikes. And with three dogs I’d love to be hands free to throw toys for them while working out! We live in a beautiful town with mountains and lakes at our fingertips!

  455. Otilia - April 28, 2015

    im free and clear to work out!!! Need to win!!! Ready to get baby weight off
    Love squats and lunges!!!

  456. Tonya Adams - April 28, 2015

    Love this!! An Ergo carrier is on my wish list for my 3rd baby due in a couple months. All of my friends rave about them. This workout looks fun too! 😉

  457. Jessica - April 28, 2015

    I have 3 under the age of 5 and have only two hands. I’ve got to win this carrier so I can work out without hearing the babes cry. I love carriers!!!

  458. Emily - April 28, 2015

    This would be wonderful for our new little one! I love being outdoors and always need a little extra help! Awesome idea!

  459. Jessie skimming - April 28, 2015

    I don’t yet have a carrier to use, I am just starting to try and find one that I can do some workouts with baby and this is one I will look at for sure!

  460. Alicia - April 28, 2015

    I can’t wait to have my baby in a month and get back to my workout routine like jogging with my new workout partner!

  461. Allison - April 28, 2015

    I had a preemie girl born 2 months early. I would love to win this to hike and take walks with. I have tried other ones and she doesn’t seem to like them.

    Thank You

  462. Allison - April 28, 2015

    Would love this to take my daughter on hikes!

  463. Jennifer - April 28, 2015

    I’d love to win this so that my husband and I can go on more family hikes with our little guy!!

  464. Julie - April 28, 2015

    I would love to have this! My daughter loves to be worn and this would be perfect for my work outs!!

  465. Mindy - April 28, 2015

    With baby #1 I wasn’t able to wear him for workouts because my carrier wasn’t comfortable enough to use while working out or for long periods of time. I’m due with baby #2 in July and would love to win an ergo carrier so I can wear baby during my workouts! 🙂

  466. Rachel - April 28, 2015

    I have one of these sitting in my Amazon cart but have yet to purchase it. Looking forward to purchasing (or winning!) one to carry my newborn around in while taking walks with my toddler!

  467. Whitney - April 28, 2015

    I so want one!! I am itching for summer!! I love to go on long hikes and make it a family event. Family is everything and we must lead by example. #teachthemwhiletheyareyoung

  468. Katie B - April 28, 2015

    I would love to win this carrier. I have a 3 year old son and an 18 month old baby girl and have never owned one of these. It was on my I wish I could afford list for over 3 years now lol. It’s never too late though, right? I have a good amount of baby weight left to lose and these workouts would be awesome to do with her. We eventually will most likely have a few more babies in a few years too so it would get used often. Anyways, thank you so much for all of the encouragement. I am a working mommy and you constantly remind me that I can still take care of me along with everything else a working mommy does too. Keep us the awesome work!!!

  469. Kara Wise - April 28, 2015

    i would love go win this!! It would be prefect for my busy crazy summer with a 1 & 2 year old in the house 🙂

  470. Brooke - April 28, 2015

    Oh my… Need and want! I thought my baby-wearing days were over. Our carriers aren’t nearly this functional. We would love to wear our little Auggie for all of our family activities, from hiking Kennesaw Mtn to trekking through the mall. I think my hubby would happily sport this “world’a greatest daddy” look as well! Love it!

  471. Sarah - April 28, 2015

    I would LOVE this ergo! I have been trying to find time to workout and this ergo would be perfect for me and my baby girl to do together! 🙂

  472. Heather - April 28, 2015

    I would love to win! Perfect way to help me get done what I need to and bond with my baby. Love it!

  473. Chelsea stilger - April 28, 2015

    I’d love to win this! I am currently due anytime with baby #3! I have never baby carried but with a husband who deploys every 6 months and me coaching my daughters ball team I want to learn. (Of course I’d never wear the baby on the field but I will be coaching from the dugout.) I want to be able to keep up with my daughter, son, and carry my little one also!

  474. Melissa - April 28, 2015

    Heidi, I’ve been fighting for my health for 2 years now. I’ve lost 70 pounds and had a beautiful baby in that time. That sweet baby is 27 lbs (at 9 months) of EBF love and only wants Mama, so every workout has to include her. Thanks for posting a great babywearing workout!

  475. April - April 28, 2015

    My third son is due in a few months, I carried both of my boy. I never worked out with them in the carrier though. I plan to with this one.

  476. Chloe garfield - April 28, 2015

    I have a little girl that is just a few days older than Ruby! She would love to ride in this while I get my workout in! Love this giveaway!

  477. cintia - April 28, 2015

    I would love to have it I been wanting this and I cant afford to get one right now I would love to use it when we go for walks with my kids and husband .

  478. Alison - April 28, 2015

    wear my baby girl to salsa babies, fit babies and ballet babies!!!! Would love to experience the ergo carrier! Thanks

  479. Jennifer - April 28, 2015

    love the idea of wearing my child while working out!! Extra hard workout plus childcare!! That’s a win/win!!

  480. Sara - April 28, 2015

    This is on my baby registry! Our first baby is due on June 9th. Super excited. 😀

  481. Lena - April 28, 2015

    I’m on my way to lose a big chunk of weight. I would love to have an Ergobaby to carry my almost 1 year old! 🙂

  482. Jasmin - April 28, 2015

    Love all the tips!

  483. EMILIE - April 28, 2015

    I want to win this for my Sis in law who needs a carrier to keep up with her two older boys who give her ALOT of excercise and Im sure new baby sister would love to come too

  484. Paula - April 28, 2015

    I’m having my 2nd baby in October & I’d love to have a fantastic carrier. Fingers crossed!

  485. Brandy Flatford - April 27, 2015

    I wear my daughter for 3-mile walks all the time and when shopping or needing to get things done around the house. It it’s a life saver for me

  486. Eliann - April 27, 2015

    Im pregnant of my second little girl. At the first I look at the ergo carrier but i didnt buy one! You give me the power, to continue, domt give up. I just want to give birth to begin my trainning with my two girl!
    Thank you!

  487. Rachel Black - April 27, 2015

    I have done a lot of research on baby carriers for my little girl due in July and it is so nice to see that Heidi likes the one I picked out. I will definitely be using this workout to get my pre-baby body back and bond with her too!

  488. Melissa Giardina - April 27, 2015

    I love wearing my carrier with my 20 month old! I love going on walks, hikes, or just carrying him around the store. I love the bonding time him and I get when I carry him. I’m so excited to try these new exercises. Thank you for sharing! You inspire me everyday!

  489. Joanna Hartman - April 25, 2015

    Hiking, walking, and inclines!! Carrying my 1.5 yr old and 6 months pregnant!!

  490. Elizabeth - April 25, 2015

    I have a 12 year old son who I carried around in a carrier all the time. I’m now pregnant again after trying for the last 11 years. I’d been training with a 20lb pack for my GoRuck training and have continued to walk with it. It will def prepare me for what’s to come. I would love to be able to carry the coming baby in the Ergo carrier.

  491. patricia gonzalez sanchez - April 24, 2015

    hello friend heidi have a daughter 15 years measured 167 meters. and weighs 90 kg. she goes to the gym but do not have a routine so he despairs because they lose weight. How does the Might help? xoxo hope your answer

  492. Heather W - April 24, 2015

    We go for walks. My little one loves spending time outdoors

  493. Devan - April 24, 2015

    Such a great article. Thanks for the excercise tips. Baby wearing is so special. I love exploring the woods with my little 4 month old on hikes. She loves being close to me and it helps her to be confident checking everything out on the trails.

  494. Stephanie - April 24, 2015

    I wear my baby in a regular Ergo every day for walks and miniworkouts at home. I would LOVE to try an Ergo Baby Performance!

  495. Katy M - April 24, 2015

    I love wearing my babe when were walking around at the beach or hiking. It is such a blessing to be so close while staying active.

  496. Jennifer - April 24, 2015

    I used to wear my son in a carrier when he was a baby to clean the house! That was pre-fitness days though :). Today, I’m a total of 107lbs lighter and using the carb cycling program to get rid of these last pesky 25lbs! Baby number 2 will be in the horizon soon and I am SO excited to do this to keep myself fit after!

  497. Kara - April 24, 2015

    I wear my baby quite often as I have an older child as well. Just wearing her when we go for walks around the neighborhood or go shopping is a bit of a work out in my opinion! I love the workout ideas on this page! Shared on pinterest.

  498. Meg - April 24, 2015

    Number 2 on the way and I want a way to exercise our soon to be family of 4 without a stroller! I’ve been researching which Ergo to purchase for this purpose.

  499. Lindsey - April 24, 2015

    I use my carrier to tote my little one (7 months!) around just about everywhere. We walk all around the neighborhood to the gym and back home again, it’s also his preferred method of shopping so anytime we leave our house he’s in the carrier. It’s also how I manage the house. He likes to be close to mommy! Our carrier is pretty hot though! Would be wonderful to have something more breathable in the summer San Antonio heat.

  500. Katelyn W - April 24, 2015

    I love to wear my little guy on day hikes! He has climbed quite a few mountains already and he is only 16 months!

  501. Nina - April 24, 2015

    look nice! Big inspiration! My baby is 12 weeks at this time, the wintertime in my country are over! Looking foreward to use time to exercise outside! That carrier would be Nice!
    Love from Nina Øverby and Julia from Norway!

  502. eileen marie - April 24, 2015

    Right now, I’m getting my exercise by wearing my little fella & walking around town on various errands.

  503. Hannah - April 23, 2015

    I don’t have an ergo(yet!),but I used carriers with my two babies(pregnant w/my 3rd!). They always thought squats and lunges were so funny. I loved wearing them for walks,cleaning house, & yard work! All great workouts. 🙂 ❤️

  504. Cassie Damato - April 23, 2015

    I have been researching different carriers for my daughter! My husband has been stationed here in Hawaii for a year, and there are ak many great hikes to do, but having a little makes doing some of them difficult. Hiking is one of my most favorite ways to exercise! Your post has really influenced me on carriers for my daughter! Thank you!

  505. Sammi Ricke - April 23, 2015

    I would love to use it for family hiking and park play dates 🙂

  506. Cassie - April 23, 2015

    I have a two year old (almost 3) who is FAST!!! This would make things so much easier to get around instead of having to haul my stroller around everywhere we go. I would use this every single day!!!! I would use it to help with grocery shopping, park trips, zoo trips, and we love to take family walks! Good luck to everyone!

  507. Sarah Gardenhire - April 23, 2015

    I love wearing my kiddos while hiking and around the house. Love my Ergo, but would love to try the Ergo Performance!

  508. Francis - April 23, 2015

    I use my carrier to go for walks around my neighborhood and the other day I used it to go to the movies with my baby girl 🙂

  509. gina - April 23, 2015

    I like to wear my 8 month old while doing household chores, or while chasing his 3 year old big sis around the park.

  510. Angela - April 23, 2015

    I always thought of wearing my one year old while doing regular daily activities as a way to get a little exercise while shopping, sweeping, vacuuming, etc. I almost never put my little guy in a stroller or shopping cart anymore. Now after seeing this post, I am excited to try an actual workout with him on my back. Now that the weather is finally getting nice here in Illinois I can head out to the park! And next week my mom’s group has a plan to head to a local forest preserve for a hike, and most of us plan on baby wearing!

  511. Hillary - April 23, 2015

    I NEED this!!! As a work from home mom of a one year old workouts can be super challenging. My little girl loves to be outside this is going to change my day. Thanks so much for these tips!!!!!!!

  512. lacy - April 23, 2015

    I cannot wait until my newborn is old enough to wear on my back to workout, garden, and everything else in my life. Due to being on bedrest most of my pregnancy for preeclampsia, I have become so stir crazy! Having a carrier that I can sweat in and that won’t hurt my back would make my life so much better.

  513. Katie - April 23, 2015

    I haven’t used one yet but would like to get a nice carrier to use once my little girl is born this july:). I enjoy walking and always feel great after a good workout:)

  514. kayla kreuger - April 23, 2015

    i babywear every day walks to the park, hikes. my husband even babywears our 3.5yr old when we go on long hikes. we use our tulas every time we go out 🙂

  515. JenaB - April 23, 2015

    You’re such an inspiration!!! I like to do squats with baby, and of course go for walks!!!

  516. Helen - April 23, 2015

    I love to babywear with my 5-month old. I wear or carry her around campus on the days that I can, and we go for long walks/hikes for exercise with the family (including our dog).

  517. Shandy Safrit - April 23, 2015

    I usually stroll my baby around for our walks! I would love to have one of these because my baby is an amputee and this would make exercising soo much easier!! Love reading your post!

  518. Liz - April 23, 2015

    My 2yr old loves back packing for everything! I also enjoy chasing him while wearing our other little guy.

  519. Liz - April 23, 2015

    I love babywearing and hiking! It allows me to be out with both of my little kids. Chasing the older one and wearing the other.

  520. Tiffany - April 23, 2015

    i wear my toddle on my back when mowing the lawn with our push mower. And, nope, it’s not a self propelled. I just give my kiddo some kid headphones and music and off we go.

  521. LaTosha Berry - April 23, 2015

    Thank you for posting! We’ve just been able to save for a used ergo. Was so excited to get. I have 45 lbs of momma fluff to lose at least n trouble getting motivated. Helps to see things I can try to start doing with our little guy. Ty so much!

  522. Sofia - April 23, 2015

    I take my 4 month old on hikes in my ergo, it will be so nice to be able to wear her on my back in a couple of months! And it would be nice to have a performance ergo to do it in!
    I have also taken her to the track and climbed stairs while wearing her!

  523. Julie - April 23, 2015

    I just a had my baby and look forward to exercising wih him. This carrier would make walks and hikes much easier!

  524. Jenn Zaleski - April 23, 2015

    Wow what a great idea. Never thought to do it. I always wait till my hubby is home from work to run or push the jogging stroller, this is a nice option. Not sure how a beginner runner like me would do but don’t know till you try I guess.

  525. Kelly - April 23, 2015

    I wear my newborn while I run after my 21 month old. That’s a great workout itself. But I also like to walk with them both. One in the carrier & one in the stroller.

  526. Brandie Bowles - April 23, 2015

    I’m a mother of a 17 month old & a 14 year old! I work full time 40 hours a week and then work at home with everything that needs to be done…house cleaning, laundry, dinner, etc… I have a stroller but really can’t get the job done with just walking and pushing a stroller. I would love to have one of these Ergobaby carriers! Please pick me!

  527. Ashley - April 23, 2015

    I use my Ergo to walk with my little guy but it’s an inward facing front wearing carrier so he is starting to get a little tired of it:) he likes to see what is going on and I really think he would like being on my back!

  528. Megan - April 23, 2015

    I love going on hikes and strapping our kid into our carrier!!

  529. Maja - April 23, 2015

    We go for a walk every day, for at least 1-2 hours, rain or snow!

  530. Courtney - April 23, 2015

    I just had my third child and love this carrier to help me get active. I have a double running stroller for the older two and this looks like a great option for my latest addition.

  531. Chelsea - April 23, 2015

    I tandem wear my twins and walk around the neighborhood. Talk about a workout! 24lbs of baby will make you sweat!!

  532. Kelly - April 23, 2015

    I go walking daily with my baby, and weekends my husband and I go hiking, sometimes during the week I’m able to attend a baby wearing hiking group!! Love it!!

  533. Nicole Garvin - April 23, 2015

    We enjoy walks, housework exercises, and all kinds of other fun with my little ones.

  534. Carly - April 23, 2015

    My favorite workout with baby is babywearing yoga. It keeps my muscles strong and me feeling great! I also enjoy taking walks with my four year old (baby brother wrapped). We’re excited to do this more now that it’s warming up! Best of luck to everyone… It would be awesome to win an Ergo!

  535. Chelsey Strauch - April 23, 2015

    I take my children hiking 4+ days per week. I babywear my 1 year old and my 3 year old walks. We’ve been doing this for about 7 months. Babywearing is a lifesaver and has allowed me to explore the world with my children. I love babywearing and exercising so much that a friend and i started a hiking group. We focus on helping families get out to explore together. Over the last several months we’ve reached over 2000 families! We help them find babycarriers to use (often our own) which has helped them explore places they never thought they could. Hiedi, I’ve always found you inpirational, straight forward, and an amazing female role model but this. THIS. This is just amazing ♡♡♡ I’ve been sharing your post with all my babywearing groups. Thank you!

  536. Tara Morehouse - April 23, 2015

    I little one is only 3 months old so I use my carrier in the front. I wear him when we go on family walks on our local trails and hikes. I also wear him for at home workouts when its not possible for me to hit the gym. He loves lunges 😉

  537. kimberly - April 23, 2015

    I use my current boba to do walks up and down a local “hill” and also for errands but would love to try out these workouts with the ergo performance carrier 🙂

  538. Melissa - April 23, 2015

    oh I would love this! Mine was ruined when my husband put lighter fluid in the trunk on our way to a bbq and it leaked all over my Ergo. Yes, I cried about that! 😉 I would carry my baby on walks, around the store- everywhere! It was great exercise. 🙂

  539. Aubrey Jannings - April 23, 2015

    I never even thought about working out with my little one on my back! What a great way to I corporate my workout with my little one! I have a carrier that is now too small for our daughter. If I don’t win his carrier I’m definitely going to go buy one!

    i walk wearing her and sometimes do squats holding her but hadn’t thought to do them wearing her!

  541. Beth - April 23, 2015

    Hiking! We are so excited for summer to begin too so that we can get outdoors again! I have a two month old who refuses to be put down so I need a comfortable carrier. I’m going to start adding squats and lunges around the house. It’ll help me lose the baby weight! Yay!

  542. Jamie Chaney - April 23, 2015

    My sweet baby girl was born at 25 weeks. She has chronic lung disease, apnea, bradycardia, GERD, reflex, particularly blind, gtube, cerebral palsy, epilepsy & autism. Because of her Cerebral Palsy she doesn’t walk so I have to carry her all of the time. She is also on oxygen. I have been thinking about one of these for a while now. I live upstairs so I have to take her, her oxygen, my purse and any groceries up three flights of stairs all at the same time. I am single so it’s just me! Now that she is bigger it’s killing me. So if I won this it would make my life so much easier. Heck I can even do this work out. I haven’t been able to workout and loose the baby weight yet because I am just to busy. This is a great idea! ♡

  543. Paula - April 23, 2015

    a baby carrier is a must when walking with 2 dogs, a 20 month old and a 3 month old!

  544. Keri - April 23, 2015

    I wear my babies walking out and about!

  545. Lindsey - April 23, 2015

    Currently using a three year old garage Sale find that has been used now for 3 kids. Youngest user is 3 1/2 months old now and is getting accustomed to Michigan spring on 1.5 mile walks. Seeing this blog is now giving me more encouragement and work out ideas to get into shape.Thanks for posting!

  546. Kristina - April 23, 2015

    I use my small carrier around the house and do my walks, and do my workout videos! 🙂

  547. Stephanie - April 23, 2015

    I am due the end of May and am so happy I found this workout! I can’t wait to take the LO with me for hikes and walks and add in these strength training techniques 🙂 Thanks!

  548. Michelle - April 23, 2015

    I wear my carrier on family walks but after reading this I’m going to actively integrate it into my workouts! Thank you for all of the tips!

  549. Alli McG - April 23, 2015

    I wear my 4 month old to do housework and go walking. He’s getting too big for our current carrier though, so he doesn’t enjoy it as long. Would love the performance to do this and other baby wearing workouts. I love the bonding time, and want to lead a healthy lifestyle by example!

  550. Laura - April 23, 2015

    I haven’t had my baby yet, I’m due in August, but I CAN NOT wait to be able to take her on hikes with my husband, or even simple things like taking the dog for a walk!

  551. Cris - April 23, 2015

    I live in Denver area… Went for a work out at the Red Rocks the other day. That is my favorite spot to go around here. Couldn’t take my luttle girl. She is 10 months and I ‘d love to be able to take her to a work out with me. Also to our hikes as a family. My son is 5 and enjoys outings in the mountains. We do what we can with her, but the carries for sure would make things easier!!!! You are such an inspiration!!!

  552. Heidi - April 23, 2015

    I have a small carrier that I use just to try to get anything done. My one year old is super busy, so without that I can’t accomplish anything! An Ergo would be amazing to use to help lose all the weight I’ve gained from being inactive since I’m home all the time with the kids! These workouts are great ideas for incorporating the kiddos! Thanks!

  553. Megan - April 23, 2015

    We enjoy going for walks and taking turns babywearing our 21 month old and 3 month old. We have a ring sling and would really love to try the Ergo Performance! 🙂

  554. Stephanie Stafford - April 23, 2015

    I use my current carrier to take long walks with my family. I carry our smallest Ben and my husband pushes our other son Samuel in a stroller!

  555. Jenna Heckendorf - April 23, 2015

    I am expecting my second baby boy in May and would use this Ergo for family walks, hikes, and lots of other fun activities outside! I love baby wearing and would use this a ton!

  556. Kalyndra - April 23, 2015

    I wear my carrier with my son in it while doing lunges.

  557. Sarah - April 23, 2015

    I am finally getting into shape but we are hoping to get pregnant again. The idea of starting all over is really freaking me out! This carrier would be such a huge advantage in exercising after having a baby!

  558. Paulina - April 23, 2015

    Love this simple workout! I’m a first time mom and actually having my daughter has motivated me to get out and exercise! I own a mei tai carrier and we go on walks everyday! Babywearing makes me feel so connected to her and makes it so much easier to just strap her in and get some blood pumping. I look forward to adding these suggestions to our daily routine. I would LOVE the performance carrier since it can get hot (Especially in SoCal!) while we do our walks! Thanks for the motivation! 🙂

  559. Irina - April 23, 2015

    Heidi,
    I had my 4th baby last year and not to long ago learned about ergo baby carriers. Need to get one! I have used baby Bjorn but with lots of walking and hiking it gets to be uncomfortable for me and my baby girl. Thank you for inspiring me with your ideas on how to get back in shape with my baby!

  560. Heather - April 23, 2015

    my baby is practically always strapped to my back. With 5 kids there is no other way.

  561. Aggie - April 23, 2015

    As a mom of four it’s super hard to find time to work out! Use a baby carrier is the only way I can get one in! I could sure use a new one!!

  562. Jenifer Hattaway - April 23, 2015

    I need the Ergobaby to use during Stroller Strides this summer I just had my 3rd DD Mar 20th & can’t wait to get back to working out

  563. Amber Nicole - April 23, 2015

    Hi Heidi! I don’t know if you will see any of my messages (I may have left you one or two on your Facebook page ;)) but my friend is doing a project and it made me think of you and your “perfectly imperfect” platform. It shows real woman, their bodies and their stories. You should check it out and it would be SO amazing if you could share it on social media. Thank you for your time! 😀

    https://www.facebook.com/thehonestbodyproject

  564. Lori - April 23, 2015

    A baby carrier while on a walk is great exercise as the weight of the baby helps you work harder 🙂 and gets baby some fresh air.

  565. Kristy - April 23, 2015

    with now 3 kids under 5 I use my carriers at anytime possible. With my older two I would run with them in the stroller then take them out and put them in the carrier to do workouts like Murph. I just had my third six weeks ago and can’t wait till the summer to do some workouts with him in the carrier not much because he so little just be squats and lunges but still it’s nice at that extra assistance and spend time with him at the same

  566. Julie - April 23, 2015

    I wear my baby when I clean the house. Does that count as exercise? 🙂 I also walk with him in my wrp but I never try to do a real work out !! Will try 🙂 Great way to add pounds and work harder then usual.

  567. Lisa - April 23, 2015

    as a first time mom (who is a lot older than most) getting a work out in after baby is crucial to my mental health! I have struggled with depression and trying to find balance post baby and getting back into shape (and my clothes) after baby. I wouldn’t trade anything, but I know that without a work out I get into a funk. These workouts are great to see and will admit I must give ’em a try! Baby wearing is a godsend! I scored a baby bjorn 2nd hand & had looked for the ergo 2nd hand to save $$ due to the cost. Trying to manage everything while on a tight budget doesn’t help at times…so baby wearing while getting a workout in is great! Thanks for posting these workouts! From one mom to another, they are appreciated.

  568. Kari - April 23, 2015

    I love our Ergo so much! It has allowed me to take my girls hiking, walking, playing! However, it’s getting so hot and humid that it makes my little one uncomfortable. I’d love to get a carrier that breathes better, such as the one Heidi is using. Much cooler and comfortable for continued summer fun! Love your posts, so relatable!

  569. liz langdon - April 23, 2015

    My second baby is due in June and I am planning on using my ergo baby to help me loose the baby weight by sneaking in a workout with baby strapped in place. Squats while tidying up toys, dips while watching my older son play and push ups on the back of the couch. Looking froward to using my ergo and would be ecstatic to have another for working out.

  570. Holly - April 23, 2015

    my little guy is just a few weeks older than your precious girly! We love working out together thankfully because this momma hasn’t lost any baby weight. We love going for walks in our carrier and doing squats while Babywearing seem more like a playful game than a workout!! ❤️

  571. Katie hen - April 23, 2015

    It would be awesome to have for doing yoga and for going on evening strolls with hubby/daddy 🙂

  572. Chrissy - April 23, 2015

    With my first daughter I used our carrier countless miles hiking, going for walks, or even getting stuff done around the house! I just had my second baby and would love to add the ergo baby to keep the same pattern without the strain on my shoulders or back with the carrier I used previously. Thanks for the workout tips- so creative ! I never thought of getting a workout other than hiking or walking with a carrier!

  573. Heather - April 23, 2015

    I never wore my daughter before, but now that I have another baby I wear him all the time. I didn’t realize how much I would love wearing him! But unfortunately I could only afford a cheap carrier so I don’t last long because it hurts after a while. Exercise is super important to me especially since I have both PCOS and hypothyroidism. As you know having more than one kid can be difficult getting out. But the baby wearing makes not just exercise, but even just quick trips to the store, and taking my active toddler to the park that much easier! I’d love to win this carrier!!!

  574. Heather - April 23, 2015

    I never thought about baby wearing and exercising simultaneously! I am expecting baby 2 in just a few weeks and would love an ergo performance to help get back into shape 🙂 I would definitely try your workout above, but I would also baby wear on family walks and playing outside with my 3 year old.

  575. Chrystine - April 23, 2015

    My husband and I use my baby carrier to walk the track at our gym with our 3 month old. Living up north, the weather isn’t always nice enough to take a little one on an outside walk, but with the indoor track we’re able to both get our workouts in! When time doesn’t allow me to get to the gym I use my carrier to tote my little one around the house, walking, climbing stairs, etc. She’s great added weight and I love the bonding time we get in as well!

  576. Melissa paulk - April 23, 2015

    I put my 3 year old on my back when I do my lunges and squats. Great workout for legs and butt! We just had another baby – so, I would love an additional carrier for both my husband and I to carry the kids. I am not a huge fan of strollers and much prefer to wear my children

  577. victoria - April 23, 2015

    My son is the happiest when he is in his carrier (the oldest ergo ever). So when he isn’t content in the jogger with his sister I strap him in and he becomes a great weight vest (he told me so himself -not really he is only 7 months). I have never felt comfortable doing more exercise with him on me bit after reading this post I’m ready to try it out!!!! Ty!!!

  578. Vicki - April 23, 2015

    I would use my baby carrier for long walks and maybe for some hike. I’d love to have the chance to shape up and still be with baby!

  579. Jessica - April 22, 2015

    Living in Alaska means carrying your baby everywhere, and with a pack it really helps with those long walks around the lake, or hiking up a mountain…keeps baby warm, and that way Mommy’s hands free! I would love an ergo carrier… It would really help in our crazy weather!

  580. Candice - April 22, 2015

    I take my little one for hikes and brisk walks around the neighborhood in a carrier!

  581. Stephanie - April 22, 2015

    I use mine at Disneyland! We live nearby so I get my workout holding her and doing squats in line with my two year old son!

  582. Ginger - April 22, 2015

    I had my fifth child a few months after you had Ruby. It was inspiring to me to see how you stayed in shape while you were pregnant. I love a baby carrier for family hikes and it is essential to help me keep up with the other four!

  583. Ginger - April 22, 2015

    I love a baby carrier for family hikes!

  584. Sarah P - April 22, 2015

    Babywearing has definitely made my legs a lot stronger – weighted squats ftw! Though I guess it does enable me to slack on my arms a bit lol 😉

  585. Suzanne - April 22, 2015

    I have a wonderful 6 month old boy who loves to be carried. A back carrier would be great for hikes and modified crossfit movements. I currently sit him in his stroller next to me during workouts but it’s been somewhat limited.

  586. Kelli Motzkus - April 22, 2015

    Power walking and hiking is what I have done in the past. With my next one, due July, I will do more intentional workouts like squats, push-ups, and lunges.

  587. Stormy Howell - April 22, 2015

    I used to wear my ergo wrap with my baby everywhere I went. It’s a little harder now with her in a wrap because she is almost to the weight limit and moves a lot. But lunges are always fun to do with baby because it gives you that extra little push.

  588. Emily - April 22, 2015

    Oh how I’d LOVE to win this ergo performance carrier! I have a 7 year old hand me down ergo which is awesome but sometimes hurts my back depending on what we are doing. I have three kids (5.5, 3.5 & 8 months old). I’d love it if we could go on walks and hikes to explore the outdoors and show my kids how fun & healthy it is to get outside and burn off energy!

  589. alissa - April 22, 2015

    We too live in Arizona! Love summer time as well. I’ve used my Baby Bjorn while hiking & walking with my last five babies. With number six just over 3 weeks I’m getting ready to start going on walks again. I’ve heard great thing about Ergo carriers, would love to try one out. Thanks for all the great tips!

  590. Diana H - April 22, 2015

    I would use it for hikes during the summer and long walks around the neighborhood and park in the springtime. It’s great to use when I have a toddler to chase after too.

  591. alissa - April 22, 2015

    I’ve used my baby bjorn for hiking & walking with my first five kids. Now with baby number six just over 3 weeks old, I’m ready to try a new baby carrier. I’ve heard such good things about Ergo carriers, I’m dying to try one out for myself. Thanks for the great tips!

  592. Christin - April 22, 2015

    I babywear my baby on hikes when we go camping and on walks around the neighborhood.

  593. Meriah - April 22, 2015

    I love the ergo carrier and would love to have one. My son loves being carried and having a carrier of our own would be perfect. I hope win!

  594. Meriah - April 22, 2015

    I love to babywear my son and go for long walks or hikes. He loves being outside and its a great bonding time. I love it!

  595. Amber Anderson - April 22, 2015

    I don’t have an ergo yet, but desperately need one!! I have an 18 mo old daughter Piper and a 2 week old daughter Eden, and we only have a single stroller. We love to exercise by going on walks to the park or around our neighborhood (my 18 mo old and i) but I feel so bad that I haven’t taken Her much since her sister Eden was born. BUT if I get an ergo, I can have one in the stroller and one on ME! And I can get a work out in all at once, not to mention trying the ones you suggested!!

  596. Kristin - April 22, 2015

    my daughter hates the stroller so for any walks or hiking on the property I use my infantino to carry her but I can’t put in on read carry with out assistance 🙁

  597. autumn jungling - April 22, 2015

    We use our ergo carrier for pretty much everything. I baby wear whule grocery shopping, family hikes, walking with friends, we even have a baby wearing group!! 🙂 I love my reg carrier bt would love a performace one!!

  598. Sindy Guzman - April 22, 2015

    We’re stationed out in the desert & the Ergo performance would be perfect for us with this hot weather! We love going for family walks & usually have baby in stroller but with an ergo performance we would be able to explore what we can’t in a stroller.

  599. Rhonda Feldpausch - April 22, 2015

    I love watching extreme weightloss and following the Powell pack!

  600. Cristina - April 22, 2015

    Amazing! There is absolutely no excuses for not working out only because we have our little ones. Awesome workout Heidi.

  601. Rhonda Feldpausch - April 22, 2015

    Wearing baby benefits me so much. I add her weight to my workout and can take my dogs for walks as well. I have 3 dogs so life would be crazier with trying to manage with a stroller.

  602. Deidra - April 22, 2015

    I would love this! I have an awful carrier. This one would be great for walks, park workouts, home workouts, and summer hikes!

  603. Jenny - April 22, 2015

    Walks and hikes with 5 kids and another on the way I need a good baby carrier

  604. Ashley Patch - April 22, 2015

    I use my ergo to take my daughter on walks. I’d love to start wearing her on my back so I can get more of a work out in.

  605. April Larcher - April 22, 2015

    I only have a wrap so I can’t really do much with my 24 lbs boy. Would love this carrier!

  606. Alycia - April 22, 2015

    I used one of my friends’ ergobaby carrier and fell in love. I’ve recently gotten back into hiking but my almost 2 year old daughter is only 18 pounds and can’t walk far. I would love to be able to get out and take more walks with our family and have an amazing carrier to have her in. Thanks for all your tips!!

  607. Regina Campbell - April 22, 2015

    I wear my baby on all my walks and every errand we run. I basically try to wear her everyday!

  608. Hannah Fletcher - April 22, 2015

    I had my beautiful daughter 8 weeks ago and I’m desperately trying to get more active and want my girl to get involved im a first time mum so finding it hard after being so active before.
    Life changing experience but need a little help.

  609. Jesica Huefner - April 22, 2015

    Trying for a little one. Not a mom yet. I will go on walks, cook from scratch with my husband and my favorite: dance. I am excited to have a little one with me to jam to some happy tunes.

  610. Andrea Fletcher - April 22, 2015

    Couldn’t find a sitter so took my babe to physical therapy. Wearing her added some extra weight to strengthen my knees faster 😉

  611. Meagan - April 22, 2015

    I like to workout while doing practical things also. Whether it’s cleaning the house, or going to the grocery store I can get an extra burn while he enjoys the view! I absolutely love fitness but the fact that I can love on my baby while taking care if myself–nothing better!

  612. julie - April 22, 2015

    For now the baby carrier is use mainly to do the chores at home and take walks, but you inspire me to start more precise exercice and to try to do it outside as well.thank you

  613. Katherine Allen - April 22, 2015

    I would be super thrilled to win this! I’m a mama of 3 and full-time ER nurse so my days are packed! This would definitely help motivate me to lose some of my baby weight! Would love to wear running errands/grocery store trips/hikes…or most likely just doing the laundry!

  614. Danielle Hacker - April 22, 2015

    I use the carrier for walks, while doing laundry and housework and it’s great for vacations with lots of walking.

  615. Kelly - April 22, 2015

    I love using carriers for going on long walks since I live out in the country as well as for little mini workouts. Can’t wait for my little guy to get bigger so I can wear him on my back

  616. Alex - April 22, 2015

    I love going on hikes with my 16 month old and long walks with the family! My son definitely would rather be in the carrier than a stroller.

  617. Kim Yates - April 22, 2015

    We babywear on hikes and walks with our 15 month old and 3 year old. They love it!!

  618. Megan LaGree - April 22, 2015

    My original Ergo is way too hot to do actual workouts in!! With baby #3 due in July I’m going to have to look into the performance carrier! I’ve worn my youngest through the airport on 4 trips and it’s truly a lifesaver, the last time was in February when he was 2 1/2 and I was 19 weeks pregnant! I love Ergo carriers, after our third comes I’ve got to spend more time working on myself!

  619. Kayla - April 22, 2015

    I currently use my carrier for family hikes, long outings at the mall, or wearing the baby while pushing our toddler in the stroller. I also baby carry while mixing cooking & working out (the working out is between checking on the food after prep is done). I love ErgoBaby, but would love to have a performance one.

  620. melissa - April 22, 2015

    Would it fit me? I am still overweight. I would love to carry my boy around to hike & use the stairs in places. I am working out but feel stuck.

  621. Christina - April 22, 2015

    I love the idea of using a carrier to free my other arm/hand – he always wants to be in the mix. 🙂 I could work up a sweat just going up and down our stairs. I’d also love to walk to the neighborhood park and try this workout!

  622. Rendi Bierman - April 22, 2015

    I love wearing my baby while working out. I walk to a nearby track when weather is nice and do similar workouts that you have shown along with some yoga! I might attempt to tandem wear for a few workouts once baby #2 arrives in June 🙂 I would love to try the Ergobaby carrier!

  623. Tammy McCormick - April 22, 2015

    My daughter just had a 10 lb baby this Monday on my birthday and I’d really love for her to win the Ergocarrier so she can start her new life on a healthy path that includes the whole family! Thank you….love you guys and your sweet family!

  624. Amanda hughes - April 22, 2015

    With my second child the weight has not come off as easy and fast as it did with my daughter (9 years ago). Lots of walking and lunges and anything to stay active while bonding with my son.

  625. Heather - April 22, 2015

    I currently have a moby carrier and a baby bjourn. Neither work for my 19 month old anymore. I would love to get a back carrier so I could do workouts like this.

  626. Colleen vandyk - April 22, 2015

    I love this!! I just did a 5km run/walk last weekend with my 25lb toddler on my back! (we walked it of course) I am excited to do another now!

  627. Erin R - April 22, 2015

    I love to workout with my niece and new nephew by wearing them while hiking, or “hikwing” as 2yr old Zoey calls it! Kauai has so many gorgeous hiking trails and the little ones are loving all the exploring we’ve been doing. An Ergo performance carrier would be so amazing for this proud auntie, especially with the hot tropical weather we have here!

  628. Melissa fitzpatrick - April 22, 2015

    My neighbor and I walk our neighborhood with our kids. I have a 1.5 year old and a 4 month old- so carrying my baby is great way to keep him close and add to my walking work out. My neighbor is pregnant and has a 2 year old. We are quite the pair, but fresh air and exercise give all of us some sanity!

  629. Teresa - April 22, 2015

    I would use this for evening walks and on family hikes 🙂

  630. Kenna - April 22, 2015

    I wear my 8 week old and walk the stairs up and down, and squat frequently to pick up my three year olds toys!

  631. laya b - April 22, 2015

    I love going on walks while baby wearing!

  632. Elliot - April 22, 2015

    I don’t have an ergo, but I am desperate for one! I have a money and it just doesn’t do the trick! I need the ergo to garden and workout with my sweet girl!

  633. Julie - April 22, 2015

    I get my exercise in while babywearing when taking walks! I recently found your blog and love how you exercise with baby! I am going to try them! Thanks!

  634. Jennifer Lee - April 22, 2015

    I’m currently 38 weeks pregnant with my first child so I haven’t had a chance to use a baby carrier. I am looking forward to losing the baby weight while bonding with my little boy. You and Ruby make look like so much fun!

  635. Joanna - April 22, 2015

    I would use an ergo for hiking

  636. Kristina - April 22, 2015

    I have a son who is 13 months old. Last summer we went on at least 2 walks a day in our carrier. I felt really good! I’ve practiced attachment parenting all the way… However he is grown out of the carrier we have, although we both still love it. I’m following the bode plan and have Chris’s book to keep me on top of it. This carrier would help me stay in shape and be a great role model for my son, as we continue to live our healthy and active life style.

  637. Emilie Cotton - April 22, 2015

    I love to baby wear! But i have a bigger baby carrier on frame and I’d love to have a smaller option for workouts! Baby and i workout at the park twice a week with her in her stroller (for now) and the ergobaby would allow for additional workouts to switch it up! 🙂

    Thanks for the inspiration Heidi!

  638. Kristin - April 22, 2015

    I like to hike Camelback or McDowell Mountain with my little guy!

  639. Katie - April 22, 2015

    I love to wear my carrier with my son for hikes! It’s perfect for extra resistance and he loves it!! We need a new one and the Ergo is my 1st choice. I know whoever wins will love it!!

  640. Sarah - April 22, 2015

    I love carrying the baby in the carrier while pushing the toddler in the stroller. Great workout!

  641. Stephanie A - April 22, 2015

    My approach to the baby carrier may be a tad different then most. My husband works night shift and sleeps during the day, so I am left with a very fidgety 10 month old, which makes the carrier quite the challenge when putting on solo. Here are my 8 steps to baby wearing success…ENJOY!

    Step #1: Unvelcro and detach hooks before putting on
    Step 2: Wrap around waist while turning around in circles multiple times in attempts to find the other side of the velcro and the hook you just detached only moments before.
    Step 3: Rest head against wall and recover from overwhelming dizziness from spinning sensation
    Step 4: Locate newly crawling, almost walking 10 month old. Chase said 10 month old around the house being particularly careful not to step on unsecured cords while making a mad dash for the toddler who has just set eyes on the very full dog water bowl that she has a new love of “bathing” in.
    Step 4: Change clothes wet from tripping on cord and landing in water bowl, and apply band aids as needed.
    Step 5: Reapply harness, pick up baby and put child in place within the harness, being quickly reminded that hair should have been restrained as baby grabs hold tightly and mushes you like a sled dog.
    Step 6: Perform pre-workout “stretching” as you desperately reach for the last clasp which is located just between your shoulder blades and completely out of reach for those not double, or heck, triple jointed.
    Step 7: Look in the mirror with pride at the beautiful application of the baby harness you have just worked so hard to put on. You are a strong and powerful woman who is capable of anything!
    Step 8; Dab sweat from forehead. Remove harness, place baby in crib for nap, and fall onto the couch. So many calories burned, so many muscles strengthened….now for a nap.

    I have had my eye on the Performance carrier for the longest time! If I won, I would take my baby girl hiking in it when we move to Germany this summer!! I’m dreaming of the possibilities ❤

  643. Ginny Irwin - April 22, 2015

    I had a Bjorn and walked alot but now that Mackenzie is over 25 lbs I can’t use it. I would love this new carrier so she can get out of the stroller!!

  644. Emily - April 22, 2015

    I love doing yoga with my 10month old, my two year old also tries to to the moves with me which is absolutely adorable. These workout will really help me to up the pace and get some more cardio in. Thanks for all you and your hubby do, yall are an inspiration!

  645. Katie - April 22, 2015

    I LOVE the idea of enjoying a workout while spending some time outside with my little guy. He just stared to crawl so it’s difficult to take him outside because he wants to put EVERYTHING in his mouth. Living in MN we don’t get to comfortably enjoy much time outside but this carrier would help us make the most of the beautiful days coming soon 🙂

  646. Krystal - April 22, 2015

    I’m 11 weeks post pardum with baby boy #3. I’m also going through a divorce. My 2nd son is autistic so we spend 30 hours a week taking him to and from ABA therapy. This carrier would help me get to a healthy weight, and I need to lose half of me :/ I’m very overweight 🙁

  647. Kristi - April 22, 2015

    I’d love the Ergo Performance Carrier for walks and exercising with my 9mo son. I have hit the 200lb mark and it’s a complete reality check!! I need to get moving and although we have a stroller it would just be nice to wear Brody and add the extra weight to my work out! I’m motivated but baby wearing would definitely make it easier. Oh and also we have a dog and it would make our walks easier being stroller free!! Love the Powell Pack and the encouragement you give others!!

  648. Heather - April 22, 2015

    I would use it for evening walks with the family!

  649. Nicole Graves - April 22, 2015

    My husband Jonathan, little man Shea and I are the proud owners of Baja Body Athletic Club in Oceanside California. Our active 3 year old Shea has been in the club since the day we opened one year ago this month. I wore him every where I went for the first year and a half in my Ergo. We would take walks and do lots of fun exercises while in the carrier. As he got a little older he would love when I would do squat hops. Similar to a squat jump but I did not want him to have too much impact. So I would take it down a notch and just hop enough that he would laugh his little butt off and ohh would my booty and quads burn! Killer workout!

  650. Nicole W. - April 22, 2015

    I have been wanting one of these carriers so bad! It would make my workouts easier and more frequent because my baby loves to be held and she always wants to be where the action is. We just moved to a new state so it would work great for exploring too!

  651. Christie - April 22, 2015

    I love my ergo! I have a 8 week old little girl and a 3 year little girl as well. I’ve used my carrier constantly on our Florida vacation 2 weeks ago. Instead of the elevator my little baby and I took the stairs with our ergo. We walked everywhere with the carrier. Now back at home I find myself using it all the time to better keep up with my 3 year old and still have the baby near me. As an avid runner and excercise enthusiast I love that carrying my baby helps get me in shape even more!

  652. Penie - April 22, 2015

    I would love too add in baby carrying workouts into my daily routine my son is 17 months old and I’m still struggling with the guilt of working out and not spending the time with my boy this would be perfect!! Thanks for posting these awesome ideas I would love to win that ergo and get started!!! Thank you Heidi!!!!

  653. Ely - April 22, 2015

    I don’t have a carrier yet, but am expecting our first baby in early July and would love a way to be able to combine baby with exercise. I think the carrier would be great for being able to get outside and have so many more options for working out that include baby! Great post! Thanks for sharing!

  654. Steph - April 22, 2015

    I love the look of this carrier! ! The one I currently use has my daughter in the front… makes it tricky for lunges or other activities! ! When I workout with her I utilize the stroller!

    So far it’s 5k runs. ..
    I’ve also had my daughter downstairs in our gym and she jumps in her jolly jumper while I do my weights and other circuits on the calendar for the day! Since I’ve had my daughter in October I’m down 48 lbs from the 53 I gained and have lost significant inches!!
    I would so love this carrier to have for hikes… workout routines and to bring her with me if I’m training clients and she needs to come!!
    I follow you on Facebook and instagram and would love you to follow my own postnatal journey @mrskooyfitness
    You keep me going Mrs. Powell!! Keep going strong and rocking at life xo

  655. Candice - April 22, 2015

    I have a cheap-y carrier for my fast growing little man. He has almost reach the weight limit on it. We like going for walks, doing small things around the house, and working out in our little garden. It’s getting harder with the carrier I have so lately he has been in the stroller quite a bit, which he hates! This carrier would be so nice!

  656. Melissa Papini - April 22, 2015

    I have the Chicco baby carrier and I use it during some of my workouts! I love doing squats and walking lunges. However, I often use my son Gavin, who is 8 months old, as my weight during the boot camp I go to! He gets to be outside with mommy and watch me get back in shape! During weight exercises I use him to do bicep curls, shoulder lifts, chest press, tricep dips, and anything else I can think of! He loves every minute of it! Most importantly is that I’m setting the example for him to lead a fit and active lifestyle! I have hear Ergo carriers are the best and hope to one day afford one! But or now I’ll just keep working with what I have and continue to get fit with the help of my little man! You are a true inspiration Heidi! Thank you for all of your tips with fitness, health, and family life!

  657. Christina - April 22, 2015

    I currently do mommy baby workouts mostly military press related workouts with him. I love the bonding with him but I would prefer to have it when I walk him around the late 3 mIles is a long walk with a stroller and I can’t bond with him as much.

  658. Yvonne - April 22, 2015

    For my 3rd kiddo, I’m using an original Baby Bjorn that I received as a gift in 2009 for my first baby – and, he hates it. He’s already 16 lbs. at 10 weeks and he’s not comfortable. I run my own business, while being a SAHM too so a baby carrier is a must. My favorite workouts with him in the carrier before he reached 16 lbs. we’re Hip Hop Abs and neighborhood parks. Baby boy and I would love an Ergo baby carrier!

  659. Dani Steele - April 22, 2015

    I am due in early June with baby #3 and then I will have 3 under 3.5 years old! It’s easy to make excuses to not exercise with 3 little ones running around! But keeping fit keeps me sane! Last summer I put my two kids in the swings at the park and did a circuit that used park benches to do box jumps, monkey bars to do pull ups, jump squats, lunges & burpees all while my kids happily swung in the sunshine! This summer I hope to do the same thing only wearing baby! ((And with some modifications of course!))

  660. Jenny Wagner - April 22, 2015

    I am blessed enough to live in Hawaii where I can be out side all year long! I wear my 11 month old during walks on the beach in the deep sand (that’s hard enough as it is! Add a 20 pound baby & HOLY WORKOUT!) I ask wear her on any & all hikes we do! We did 7 miles the other day & the equivalent of 115 flights of stairs! I am working on getting my health back to where it should be. Having a high quality carrier like this would make a world of difference! Thanks SO much for these awesome workout ideas! I think I’ll do them and share with my YouTube subscribers!

  661. LaurieAnn - April 22, 2015

    Don’t own a carrier but this one would be perfect for my daughter’s church cleaning job! It would make cleaning so much easier having a carrier! Right now her 3 month old is pushed around in a stroller by her while she cleans.

  662. Summer - April 22, 2015

    I wear my baby carrier around the park & incorporate lower body workouts like lunges & squats!!

  663. Kiersten - April 22, 2015

    I wear my 3rd while going up and down the stairs and cleaning. I strength train in the mornings while he’s still sleeping. I’d love to have a better carrier so I could do a real workout with him!!

  664. Alexis - April 22, 2015

    I am due in July so technically I haven’t used a baby carrier but I am determined to get back in shape post baby. I have heard a lot of good things about this carrier and it will be awesome to bond with baby and get exercise!!!

  665. Robin Shrout - April 22, 2015

    Our adopted daughters are coming home soon so I would use it to wear when they get home to be able to bond and still work out.

  666. Jenny - April 22, 2015

    When my twins were 4 months old, I decided to shed the extra pounds (thanks to you and Chris for the inspiration!) and started counting calories and finding as many mommy and kid friendly activies as possible. I’ve lost 35 pounds and now I’m working on toning and building muscle so an ergo would be awesome to help with that!! I have a 3 year old and my twins are 1 so whenever we go anywhere- children’s museum, mall, zoo- anywhere just to get out of the house and get moving, I always end up holding one, while pushing the other two in the stroller; which can sometimes be a challenge! They even love to make my workouts at home a challenge! When I attempt push ups, I usually end up with two babies on my back giving me an extra 50 pounds! I love that my body is growing stronger and becoming accustom to the challenge of a toddler and twins! Being fit definitely helps me keep up with them! An ergo would make it SO much easier for me to keep up an active lifestyle while still including my kids!

  667. Kimberley - April 22, 2015

    I love wearing babe! I have been baby wearing since my last babe 7 years ago and my new babe who is now 17 months! He falls right to sleep at nap time. We like walking and he loves the view from the carrier. Daddy love warig babe too. Its great exercise 🙂

    • Kimberley - April 22, 2015

      I forgot to add that I have never tried an ergo but would love too!

  668. Karen - April 22, 2015

    My 7 month old weighs a whopping 22 lbs, so I get quite the workout no matter what I am doing with him. I’ve had several people comment on how skinny I am so soon after having a baby and I just say, “Do you see what I carry around all the time? He’s the whole reason!” Oh, and breastfeeding too 😉

  669. Kellie - April 22, 2015

    I would love to be able to wear my baby more but he has put grown his foward carrier. To win this one would be awesome. I have older kids who have several activities and having a carrier we would be able to attend more events as a whole family.

  670. Katie Waid - April 22, 2015

    My husband and our family are stationed at Offutt AFB in Bellevue, Nebraska and they have a wonderful field house for us to use! Since I have a two year old and a six month old I use the baby carrier to carry my daughter while my son and I walk the track or jog! It is wonderful to be hands free so my two year old doesn’t feel left out 🙂 I would appreciate an Ergo carrier SO much!

    God Bless

    Katie W.

  671. Marie Chamberlain - April 22, 2015

    I am expecting our third baby late this summer. I haven’t done much baby wearing because I have always been able to wrangle my two kids without one. I have had my eye the Ergo for the last few months and I am sure I will need it to keep up with my kids. I would love an Ergo to take my kids to the park, run errands, walk to school and my favorite family workout hiking.

  672. Melissa M - April 22, 2015

    Going on walks and hikes

  673. Lindsay - April 22, 2015

    I love wearing my kiddo when we are walking around town or even better when we are walking to school! I live in a rural, VERY hilly area so having my little one along for the walk is like having an extra workout!

  674. Sarah - April 22, 2015

    My daughter is 3 months old today! We live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan so we are still getting snow. I haven’t been able to get out much because of the weather, but we have gone for some long walks with her in the carrier on nicer days. I’m looking forward to summer so we can use the carrier more and get more exercise and fresh air 🙂

  675. Emmie Maass - April 22, 2015

    When I had my now 10 month old baby, I couldn’t afford an Ergo or any nicer baby carrier. The one I have now is not very supportive and not easy to carry her 20 lb body around in! I would LOVE to use this Ergo to take walks with her in and start finally getting summer ready with baby-wearing workouts! If I won this carrier it would be so beneficial for us both!

  676. Ashley Hauser - April 22, 2015

    I use my ergo for walks with my 5 month old. Excited to try the fitness inspired ways you posted.

  677. stacy - April 22, 2015

    If I won I would actually give this to my sister who recently just had a baby (2 wks ago) & wants to lose weight and get healthy.

  678. Ashley Hauser - April 22, 2015

    I use my ergo for walks with my 5 month old. I love all the fitness ways you posted that can be used with the ergo, excited to try them.

  679. Brittany K - April 22, 2015

    Love baby wearing while going on hikes!

  680. Kristy Lacy - April 22, 2015

    I have to use a baby walker to excercise with my 10 month old, and he can climb out of it now. Desperately need a baby carrier, especially one like in this picture. I am rather large chested and most of them won’t fit around them. It would be great to use with lunges, squats, triceps dips, and especially walking. Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  681. Paula - April 22, 2015

    Hi!
    We live in the city so we do a lot of walking. It is so much easier to strap baby up on me or in the stroller to head to the grocery store or the park. I can’t wait to get in better shape before the planning of baby number 2.

  682. Ciera - April 22, 2015

    A carrier would be perfect for a park workout! You look amazing and your daughter is beautiful! I’m a visual person and love seeing how I could incorporate my kids into my workout! Thanks for sharing

  683. Nadina Pepe - April 22, 2015

    Hi Heidi!
    I love seeing all your great tips! Especially the ones that include Rubes. My little man Matteo is 11 months old and a whopping 28 lbs which makes it challenging with a weak back. I have been eating clean and working out and I’m really starting to see a difference. As the weather has gotten nicer her in BC, Canada we are going on walks and hikes with our friends and moms. Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful face! Xoxo

  684. Lauren - April 22, 2015

    I would use my carrier to start walking more outside with my baby and his big brother and sisters.

  685. heather Sloan - April 22, 2015

    I live in Oregon and have beautiful hikes that I carry my little one along on. Lots of waterfalls to go see!! My baby loves to be in his carrier and I love being so close to him while also being active.

  686. Ali - April 22, 2015

    Hikes and walks with my two other little ones and one double stroller! The more convenient it is to get out with kids, the more we will actually do it!

  687. Michelle - April 22, 2015

    Would love one of these. My 25 lb toddler is getting heavy to haul. The carriers I tried hurt my back. ..this workout looks fabulous

  688. Amy Westmoreland - April 22, 2015

    I don’t have one of these but would love to have one. I would wear my carrier doing errands and my afternoon walks with my little Nate! We love being outside and I need to loose 15 pounds to be pre-baby weight. 118……yes will make my weight goal again with this awesome baby wear!! Squats, baby, yay!!!!

  689. Shannon - April 22, 2015

    i use my ergo original hiking with my little guy as well as kanga workouts With the warm weather coming a performance ergo would be great!

  690. Danielle - April 22, 2015

    I have a 7 month old and live in Utah where we have amazing hiking. I’m hoping to bring my buddy along on some hikes this spring/summer.

  691. Ashley Giannetti - April 22, 2015

    I’ve used a baby carrier for walks around the neighborhood and for hikes! We live in hawaii so we are outdoors a lot so the carrier gets used quite a bit 🙂

  692. Gemma - April 22, 2015

    This fall I will be a first time mom. My husband and I have been married two years and we made it a point that we would remain an active healthy couple. We joined the gym and are pretty good about going 3 times a week. I know once the baby arrives going to the gym will probably not be as easy. Having a park near our home, i know that will be a better location for us to work out together as a family. Having the Ergobaby will be great addition, in order to continue the healthy life style we both promised to have.

  693. Elizabeth - April 22, 2015

    My youngest isn’t a fan of the childcare at the Y yet so I’d use the carrier to workout while my next youngest child plays at the park.

  694. Jill - April 22, 2015

    We love to go on hikes with our baby carrier. Yay for babywearing.

  695. Erin - April 22, 2015

    I’ve used my carrier to do walks around our campground in the summer, I love it! And now I have a 2 year old and a 5 month old – so I need any help I can get to stay active. 🙂

  696. Evie Prewitt - April 22, 2015

    I have an 8 month old who loves being on the move, whether it’s in the stroller, the car, or in the carrier. I was given a baby Bjorn to borrow and I use that sometimes when we go hiking, on walks, or take the dog to the dog beach; and honestly, it’s not comfortable for her or I. I would love an ergo to be able to give comfort to both of us and be able to transition her to my back when necessary! My husband is in the military and we are stationed in Hawaii and we are always going on walks or hikes and I know we would get great use out of a comfortable carrier!

  697. Samantha - April 22, 2015

    I love all of these baby-wearing workout ideas! I use my baby carrier during walks and a few squats. I’ve heard great things about Ergo and would (of course!) love to win one 🙂 I really enjoy following you and Chris on Instagram btw!

    Shared on my Twitter page!

  698. robbie - April 22, 2015

    I wear my 4 month old to get her to fall asleep :). We also love walks and lots and lots of squats in a carrier!!! THIS carrier looks so amazing!!!

  699. Hafsa Sarwar - April 22, 2015

    i m a mom of two kids. One is two years n another is 11 months.. Hard for me to take double stroller out and walk.. It’s look comfy to me.. I want one.. So I can shed my extra 55 pounds…

  700. Harmony - April 22, 2015

    I would love this carrier! We have the original ergo and love using to hike with my son 🙂 it is a great way to get some exercise in and also enjoy the scenery!

  701. Jennifer - April 22, 2015

    I’m pregnant with my first, but would love to use a Ergobaby carrier the way you have shown 🙂

  702. Shelby Cunningham - April 22, 2015

    I’ve been wearing my two boys for 3 years now and I love love love it. The bonding is so amazing. We wear during our walks with the dogs. As well we love hiking in the mountains while wearing.

  703. robyn Leigh - April 22, 2015

    I am a foster parent of two little ones so I put one baby in a carrier on my back and one on the front and go for family walks!

  704. Courtney arnold - April 22, 2015

    I would love this carrier! I have a 2.5 year old and a 3 week old. Time is limited but I can’t wait to begin working out again. Right now I have a wrap that I use to carry the baby but want to get the Ergo! People absolutely love it, from what I have heard. Having this carrier would definitely enhance my workout routine!!

  705. jennifer - April 22, 2015

    I just got a carrier and my 3 month old is liking it. We have only used it for basic walking. There’s a group in our area called hike it baby so I’m hoping to be able to get out with them soon.

  706. Charity - April 22, 2015

    i would do the routine you posted. My baby is almost 9 months. Time to get rid of the baby weight!!!!

  707. Andria - April 22, 2015

    I would love this!! I’m going to be a first time mom this October and I plan on being as active as possible with my son (oh that still sounds so strange & awesome; I’m going to have a son!!). My husband has always been on the heavier side and since I’ve gotten pregnant he has suddenly started working out every single day and eating smaller portions (while I can’t stop eating). He’s more motivated than ever to get in shape to set a great example for our son and what better way to encourage that than to give him a way to work out while babywearing! Blame the pregnancy hormones, but I’m tearing up just picturing my husband babywearing…how adorable!!! We love you guys and support everything you do!

  708. Megan - April 22, 2015

    I wear my 2 month old on my chest while I push my 18 month old in a stroller on walks!!! The extra weight I’m pushing and carrying makes a huge difference!! But I would LOVE an ergo carrier that I can use on my back and do that workout please!!

  709. Tiffany - April 22, 2015

    I love doing yoga with my baby boy! It’s relaxing for both of us and carrying him gives me a little extra burn. Thank you for the added inspiration Heidi!

  710. Brittney Fairbanks - April 22, 2015

    The Ergo is a lifesaver! With a busy husband in dental school and living thousands of miles from family this carrier saved my life as a new mom. I am about to have my second this summer and it is my way to be able to get out and still enjoy all of the beautiful hikes here in Arizona. I used this grocery shopping, meal prep, anytime my (needy) baby desired to be held yet I needed my hands! I would love the sport performance version though! Mine is the generic and is not breathable in the desert heat! Thanks for these awesome workout suggestions! You are the best and such an inspiration as a mom!

  711. rosalinda - April 22, 2015

    I’d love to win this ergobaby, it will allow me to finally have time to work out. I have not had time do to not having something like this. This will allow me to help my daughter see that mommy is trying. She only 18months. I have always been heavy and worked out everytime i could but since having her haven’t made the time.

  712. Melissa Brown - April 22, 2015

    i love these workouts! My little guy giggles when I do squats with him on my back! I currently have a wrap that supports a smaller baby than my 24lb man. Can’t seem to keep him where I’d like and it’s killing my shoulders! With a new wrap I could get motivated to wear him some more and get moving to lose some of this jiggle!! 😉

  713. Kasey Calderoni - April 22, 2015

    Love all these great ideas for working out with baby! I never owned a baby carrier with my first daughter who’s now 2 now I’m due in 5 weeks with my second daughter. I really need to get back to a healthy weight and get back to exercising as I’m at an unhealthy weight right now. I would love an opportunity to workout with my girls especially using a carrier like this. I’ve heard how amazing these carriers. I’ve been wanting one ever since I had my first baby! Hoping to be able to take these great ideas and put them to use! Thank you Heidi for all the inspiring blog posts!

  714. Amber Lynch - April 22, 2015

    i would love to win this carrier. I have a 5 month old daughter and lately I’ve been using a carrier to go on walks with her. That’s about the only way I can get a workout in. She likes to be held and carried all the time!

  715. katie - April 22, 2015

    I am currently only 3 months pregnant but as a personal trainer I have continued to stay active and plan on keeping my fitness level up for the rest of my pregnancy and when baby comes! I’m always on the go and I know I’ll miss my clients when I’m off for a bit so I could love to be able to strap baby on board and keep doing what I love 🙂

  716. Jessica Stratton - April 22, 2015

    Hi! We just had a baby girl a few months ago and I am so excited to get back in shape! We are buying a new house and our backyard lets out into a park and our three year old is beyond excited!! The park everyday?! His dream come true! I love this post about ways to workout using the Ergo! I don’t have an ergo, I just have a moby. My moby is awesome, and we do our morning workouts together for now but as she’s getting bigger this Ergo wrap would be amazing, all my friends rave about theirs!! We are keeping our fingers and toes crossed we win!!:) We absolutely love your show and loving following you and Chris on Instagram! You guys are incredible examples and motivators! Thanks!!!

  717. Natalie Simmons - April 22, 2015

    Well right now I have a baby bjorn that I got with my first son who is now 5! I currently strap my 7 month old son into baby bjorn and walk on the treadmill or we go for walks outside to burn my older boys energy.

  718. Jessica Bailey - April 22, 2015

    I would love to do the squats with my daughter in my back instead of holding her.

  719. Jenna - April 22, 2015

    I use my carrier to go on walks. Austin is 2 months and I don’t love my carrier but have heard awesome comments on the ergo!

  720. kristen - April 22, 2015

    I have a wrap so I am a little more limited as it tends to stretch out after wearing for a little bit. I do squats and lunges and nice long hikes. We also like to dance. Love you guys and your show! You both and your relationship is such an inspiration! Going on 5 months strong of a life style change, we are eating healthier and working out 5 days a week! I am starting to feel great again! 40 more pounds to go!

  721. Nicole Humphrey - April 22, 2015

    I’m excited to do walking and squats with the baby carrier… I have twins, so I guess I’ll have to do at least 2 sets! 🙂

  722. Liz Gumbel - April 22, 2015

    My little guy isn’t due until July but I’d LOVE to win the ergo to help get me back into fighting shape! I can just imagine how easy it will be to walk the dog or go for a hike in our local park with this carrier.
    I’ve heard so many amazing things about this carrier and if it’s good enough for Ruby then I’m sure my little guy will love it 🙂

    I never worked out with my first daughter but now I’m having twins in a few weeks and couldn’t think of any other way to get a work out in ther than with them. God knows my body needs all the workouts! Would love to hear more on how to work out after having a baby since u bounced back incredibly!

    If we workout together I try to make it a game or we go for a long walk! My baby will sleep in our carrier on and off durng the walk! I’m learning how to do baby- wearing yoga for more carrier workout options!
    You and your family are a great inspiration!

    Hello! I am due in August and would love this carrier to help me with my post-baby workouts. I have two littles already, 5 and 3, who love to go on walks with mommy. Thanks!

    Hi! We just had our 6th kiddo and man could I use a new Ergo! Ours has been very well loved and is ready for retirement! I use my Ergo for trips to the park and zoo with the kids. I also use it to go grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning and doing some light walking around the neighborhood. Great tips on how to get more of a workout in while baby wearing. I need to multitask as much as possible!! Thanks for doing such a wonderful giveaway!

    I don’t have an ergo carrier, but I borrowed one from a friend and I did squats, push-ups and walks around the neighborhood! I loved it and now that my youngest is a year I would love to have an ergo to carry her on my back and get active!!!

    I love going on walks while babywearing, making sure to keep good posture and engage my core! It makes me feel so strong in such a simple way!

    My workout would be intense if I write my little guy who is now 4. But I soon will be caring for a 4 month old and I would love to enjoy walking wearing her watching my little man ride his bike!! Please!
