The Story Behind Ergobaby

It All Began With A Simple Idea


It all started in 2002 when a mother named Karin Frost who was living in Maui was looking for the perfect carrier to keep her son close to her body. She quickly became unsatisfied with the lack of comfort and ergonomics from the options available to her.


So she used her background in design and set out to create something that was both comfortable and easy for parents to use. The first Ergobaby Baby Carrier was born offering an ergonomic and comfortable design for both parent and baby.

"I set out to make a carrier that was comfortable as well as easy for parents to use. My goal was to offer one carrier that would fit every body types and serve the parent and child from newborn for as long as they wanted the physical closeness."
Karin Frost, Founder of Ergobaby

With that original humble design, Karin revolutionized the way we carry babies. Her soft structures carrier (SSC) design became the gold standard and set a new precedent for baby carriers. Ergobaby has gone on to use their design expertise to develop a whole range of Ergobaby products from carriers, wraps, pushchairs, nursing pillows and sleepwear.
