Shape Up for Summer: My Babywearing Workout

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I know this blog is from years back but I?m a couple months pregnant! So I?m looking back at your blog posts to glean some insight with working out post-baby and also during pregnancy! I think those booty bands would be amazing! My instagram is sammie.carel and Sammierose7 ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for being an inspiration!

  2. This is great! We go on so many baby wearing adventures year round (I also love our Arizona summers, but cannot wait for our winter hikes!), I definitely need to incorporate this workout into some of our morning walks/hikes.

  3. This is the best baby carrier. I love all your tips to getting swimsuit ready. After my little Charlotte is born I’ll be ready to get back on track! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Love-love-love these ideas.. thank you! Your tips have been such a life saver the past couple years..lost 200lbs carb cycling and following your tips! New baby on the way so will love to incorporate these into my daily routine when I’m fitting in my workouts!
    Thanks!!!

  5. I would love to win for 6 month old baby that was 11 weeks premie and is now flourishing! Mama needs a new carrier!

  6. Baby wearing seems so cool.. With baby always.. Even while getting fit.

    I would love to use baby carrier and stay healthy with same time be with baby..

  7. I would love to win this! I consider every pound my babies gain to be an extra pound that I get to carry-mom arms are the best arms!

  8. 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!

  9. You are so beautiful and very inspiring. I would love to win this my baby girl is turning 10 months soon.

  10. This would be amazing! I love doing workouts with my son and enjoy finding new ways to incorporate him!

  11. 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!

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. 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!

  18. 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!

  19. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  21. 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!!!

  22. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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!

  26. 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!!

  27. 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ Jess

  28. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  29. 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!

  30. 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!!!

  31. Sometimes that’s the only way to get in a bit of exercise and baby loves it ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re role models for our children and showing good examples by exercising however we can is a great way to lead by example ๐Ÿ™‚

  32. 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.

  33. 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!!

  34. My husband and I are expecting our first baby in 8 weeks and 1 day ๐Ÿ™‚ . 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!

  35. 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!

  36. 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.

  37. 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!

  38. 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!

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

  40. 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!!

  41. 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.

  42. 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!

  43. 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.

  44. 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

  45. 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.

  46. 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!

  47. 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.

  48. 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!

  49. 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

  50. 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.

  51. 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  52. 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!

  53. 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!

  54. 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.

  55. 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.

  56. 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.

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

  58. 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

  59. 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;)

  60. 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:)

  61. 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.

  62. 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!!

  63. 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.

  64. 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!

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

  66. 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!!

  67. 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!

  68. 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!!!

  69. 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 .

  70. 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!!

  71. 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!

  72. 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!

  73. 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.

  74. 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.

  75. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ I still have 20 pounds to loose!!!!

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

  77. 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!!

  78. 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!

  79. 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!!

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

  81. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  82. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  84. 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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  85. 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!

  86. 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!

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

  88. 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

  89. 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.

  90. 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.

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

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

  93. 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.

  94. 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.

  95. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  96. 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!

  97. 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.

  98. 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.

  99. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  100. 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.

  101. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  102. 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!

  103. 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.

  104. 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.

  105. 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.

  106. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  107. 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.

  108. 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!

  109. 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.

  110. 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.

  111. 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!

  112. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  113. 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!! ??

  114. 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!

  115. 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!

  116. 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!!!

  117. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ I would love to win this and get the chance to try out more baby wearing workout and work off my extra baby weight!

  118. 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 ๐Ÿ˜€ after having two girls ๐Ÿ˜€ I’d be super excited to have a carrier like this!!!

  119. 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.

  120. 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!

  121. 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!

  122. 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.

  123. 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.

  124. 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!

  125. 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.

  126. 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!

  127. 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.

  128. 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

  129. 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.

  130. 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!

  131. 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

  132. 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!

  133. 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!

  134. 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!

  135. 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.

  136. Id love to win an Ergobaby!!! I’m actually in the market for one now ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!!

  137. 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.

  138. 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!

  139. 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!

  140. 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!!!

  141. 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!

  142. 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.

  143. 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!

  144. 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!

  145. 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

  146. 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

  147. 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!

  148. 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!

  149. 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.

  150. 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.

  151. 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!!

  152. 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!

  153. 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.

  154. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  155. 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!!

  156. 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

  157. 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.

  158. 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!!!!!!!!!

  159. 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Looking for a new carrier for the next one on the way!

  160. 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!!

  161. 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.

  162. 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!

  163. 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!

  164. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  165. 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 :)))

  166. 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!

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

  168. 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.

  169. 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!

  170. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚
    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

  171. 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!

  172. 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.

  173. 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!

  174. 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!

  175. 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!

  176. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  177. 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.

  178. 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!

  179. 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

  180. 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!

  181. I need this carrier been trying to be more active to get healthy for my baby girl ๐Ÿ™‚ my motivation is to be my daughter’s insperation.

  182. 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.

  183. 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.

  184. 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.

  185. 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!

  186. 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 ??

  187. 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.

  188. 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!

  189. 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.

  190. 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!

  191. 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.

  192. 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.

  193. 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

  194. 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!

  195. 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.

  196. 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!

  197. 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!

  198. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  199. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  200. Fellow Arizonan here! I love babywearing and love to use the carriers while working out. Baby is plenty of extra weight! ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

  202. 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!

  203. 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!

  204. 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.

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

  206. 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.

  207. 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!

  208. 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!

  209. 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.

  210. 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

  211. I have a 2 year old and pregnant with #2 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

  212. 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.

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

  214. 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.

  215. 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!

  216. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  217. 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!!!

  218. 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.

  219. 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!

  220. 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!

  221. 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!

  222. 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!

  223. 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!!:):)

  224. 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!

  225. 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.

  226. 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!

  227. 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!

  228. 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.

  229. 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.

  230. 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!

    1. 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!!

  231. 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!

  232. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  233. 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.

  234. 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!!!

  235. 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!!

  236. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ inspirational

  237. 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!

  238. 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!

  239. 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!!

  240. i desperately need one! It’s impossible to excessive with a 6 month old baby in my arms at all times ๐Ÿ™

  241. 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!!! : )

  242. 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.

  243. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  244. 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!

  245. 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

  246. 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!

  247. 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!

  248. 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!!!

  249. 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

  250. 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

  251. I add one of my twin boys for some extra resistance on my walks, front or back, whichever they need that day ๐Ÿ™‚ 30 pounds definitely adds more resistance!

  252. I have an older Ergo and love it! Baby wearing makes life so much easier and baby loves it too ๐Ÿ™‚

  253. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  254. 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.

  255. 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.

  256. 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:)

  257. 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.

  258. 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.

  259. 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.

  260. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  261. 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!

  262. 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.

  263. 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!!

  264. 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!

  265. 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.

  266. 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!!!

  267. 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!

  268. 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!

  269. 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.

  270. 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!

  271. 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!

  272. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  273. 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:)

  274. 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.

  275. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  276. 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.

  277. 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.

  278. I don’t have one but all the more reason to win, right? ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  279. 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!!!

  280. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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!

  281. 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

  282. 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.

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

  284. 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!!!!

  285. 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.

  286. 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!

  287. 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.

  288. 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.

  289. 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?!

  290. 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!

  291. An Ergo carrier would be SO wonderful for our little man on the way! I could workout with him & walk the dog ๐Ÿ™‚ Love this!!!

  292. 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!

  293. 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.

  294. 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

  295. 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 :).

  296. 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.

  297. 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!

  298. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  299. 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;)

  300. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  301. A great way to exercise – you can use the baby’s weight as resistance! Bonding + working out = perfect! ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  303. 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.

  304. 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.

  305. 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!

  306. 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

  307. 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

  308. 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.

  309. 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!

  310. 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.

  311. 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.

  312. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

  313. 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.” ๐Ÿ™‚

    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!!

  314. 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!!

  315. 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!

  316. 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.

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

  318. oohhh me! I wanna win this really bad so I can do this workout when I deliver this baby that Im brewing up. ๐Ÿ™‚ Looks fun!

  319. 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.

  320. 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!?!?

  321. 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!

  322. 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!

  323. 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) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  324. 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!!!

  325. 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.

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

  327. 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.

  328. 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!

  329. 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!

  330. 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.

  331. 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!

  332. 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.

  333. 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!!

  334. 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.

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

  336. 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.

  337. 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!

  338. 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!!

  339. 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

  340. 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.

  341. 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 .

  342. 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.

  343. 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!

  344. 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! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  345. 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!!!

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

  347. 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!

  348. 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!

  349. 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

  350. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  351. 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!

  352. 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

  353. 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!!!

  354. i would love go win this!! It would be prefect for my busy crazy summer with a 1 & 2 year old in the house ๐Ÿ™‚

  355. 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!

  356. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  357. 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!

  358. 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!

  359. 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.

  360. 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!

  361. 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 .

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

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

  364. 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

  365. 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

  366. 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

  367. 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!

  368. 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!

  369. 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!

  370. 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.

  371. 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

    1. Hi Patricia: Here’s a post about kids and weight/body image – I hope it will help you and your daughter: https://heidipowell.net/7201/teens-and-healthy-body-image-its-not-just-about-the-pounds/. The most important thing is to help her develop healthy habits that will benefit her throughout her life, and when she does this, any extra pounds should go away. Her healthcare team would be a great resource to help with this too. We wish you both the best! ๐Ÿ™‚

  372. 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.

  373. 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!

  374. 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.

  375. 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!

  376. 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.

  377. 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.

  378. 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.

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

  380. 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 ?verby and Julia from Norway!

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

  382. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ ??

  383. 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!

  384. 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!

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

  386. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  388. 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!

  389. 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!!!!!!!

  390. 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.

  391. 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:)

  392. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  393. 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).

  394. 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!

  395. 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.

  396. 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.

  397. 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!

  398. 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!

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

  400. 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.

  401. 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.

  402. 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!

  403. 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!

  404. 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.

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

  406. 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!!

  407. 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!

  408. 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!

  409. 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

  410. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  411. 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! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I would carry my baby on walks, around the store- everywhere! It was great exercise. ๐Ÿ™‚

  412. 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!

  413. 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!

  414. 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! ?

  415. 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!

  416. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks!
