Ergobaby Performance Infant Insert - Black/Charcoal - IIP00128NL

Item # IIP00138NL

Made of a breathable mesh exterior and a wicking knit interior, the Ergobaby Performance Infant Insert cushion must be inserted to support growing babies ranging from newborns to 4-5 months. The proprietary design keeps pressure off a baby’s developing sacrum. The Performance Infant Insert also provides the necessary head and neck support for comfortable carrying from Day 1. The Performance Infant Insert snaps around the baby, can be adjusted as needed and placed with ease inside any Ergobaby Carrier. Cozy and protected, your baby will be perfectly cradled and cushioned.

Definitely the most comfortable baby carrier I've used. Baby seems happy in it, though sometimes I think he'd prefer to be able to face out and look around. He can sleep comfortably in it.
No option for baby to face out
Best Uses:
Comfortable to carry baby around, even for long periods.

This carrier is light weight, easy to use, and is comfortable for the baby. He likes falling asleep in it. For the parent, it does to strain the shoulders and hips a bit (baby is 15.5 pounds) after a while. But overall it's comfortable, especially having the little one so close and nestled. We use a rolled up blanket for him to sit on, to boost him up. We didn't get the infant insert since at 4.5 months, he'd outgrow it quickly, if he wasn't already too big for it.
Light, breathable, keeps cool

Fantastic Carrier
December 28, 2013
I got this to replace a borrowed organic Ergo that needed to be returned. I loved the organic one and was reluctant to veer from that product because it was so soft an cozy. But, we live in a very hot climate, are active & also have a 40lb 4yr old, in addition to a 20lb 9mos old, so the performance seemed like a better fit for our family. So far I love it. It's lighter & cooler than the organic, though, as expected, not as soft. But it's still soft enough & provides that snuggly feel with the little one. I have numerous carriers: a Bjorn classic, which my husband loves, a K'tan that I liked with my older daughter, a hotsling which was nice for 0-4 months, a ring sling which was great for 4-8 months, and since 8 months old the Ergo is all I want to use (I wish I'd had one with my first)! I've even carted my huge 4yr old in it & it was relatively comfortable (like the 45lb weight limit). I'd highly recommend an Ergo, in general & specifically the Performance model if you live in a hot place and/or have heavy kids & an active lifestyle.
Lightweight, cool, comfy, easy/discreet to nurse in
Straps a little scratchy but payoff is cooler & more supportive
Best Uses:
Hiking, shopping, housework, travel

Great Carrier

I love the look (and color) of this carrier! My baby is not due for another 4 months so I haven't really gotten to try it out, but the blue is beautiful and it is light weight. The shoulder straps are ergonomic and nicely padded. I've read other reviews where people said they strap mesh material is "scratchy" but I do not think they are - and I plan to wear it with tank tops the majority of the time.
light weight compared to other carriers breathable material holds kids up to (I think) 45 lbs!

Great Design

The Ergobaby Performance carrier is extremely easy to use. Our 4 week old fit great and didn't appear to get too hot while in the carrier for a little over an hour walking around shopping. This carrier is extremely easy to use and adjust.

I love this ergo performance that I purchased, my 20 mos. old baby is very comfy, the fabric is perfect especially when the weather is hot.
It is very easy to wear, the fabric is lighter & comfy.

I had the bjorn but it hurt my back. I returned it and got this one!! Its a great carrier!! My baby loves it and so do I. It gives you tummy to tummy time so when you are out your baby feels safe and will remain quiet. I love the fabric. Its very well made. There are lots of pockets. I love that feature so I don't have to take a bag into the store. I also love the nap/rain hood. You will not find a better carrier.
