Wow – did you know Ergobaby has been around for 20 years? That’s when Karin Frost, a single mum on Maui, Hawaii, designed her first ergonomic baby carrier and set new standards for baby carriers around the world. To celebrate our anniversary this year, we asked you to help design our limited-edition baby carrier to celebrate our 20th Anniversary and the millions of moments parents and babies have spent in our baby carriers.

It was incredibly exciting, we received so many great and creative design entries from all around the world! It was incredibly hard to decide which to turn into a carrier. But, we finally made a decision. So without further ado… tadaaaa…. we are proud to announce the winning design “Starry Galaxy” is now available in our online shop. YAY!

Our Ergobaby Omni carriers are among the most popular baby carriers around. They combine all the best of the experience and knowledge of Ergobaby’s 20 years of innovation. After all, we didn’t choose our popular 4-position carrier made of cosy cotton for our design competition for no reason. But you’re probably already bursting with excitement, so we’d like to tell you more about the new design, which was created by an Ergobaby customer and mum of two.

The beautiful design Starry Galaxy is a celestial blue with drawings of suns, moons and stars was created by Evangeline from Singapore. The 23-year-old was inspired by a poem by E. E. Cummings: “you are my sun, my moon and all my stars”. Why she loves the quote so much? “I think all parents would agree that our children mean the world to us and bring so much light into our lives.” However, the mother of two never thought she would win with her drawing. “I was really shocked,” she says, “To be able to be a part of a company that has such a meaningful mission and not only helps parents with ergonomic products in their everyday lives with children, but also fosters the bond between mum, dad and baby is a great honour.”

Omni Dream baby carrier in Starry Galaxy: design meets functionality and highest comfort

We can all agree that our new Starry Galaxy design is beautiful. But as we all know, beauty isn’t everything. Our Ergobaby Omni Dream baby carrier is Ergobaby’s softest and cosiest cotton carrier. The brushed SoftTouch™ cotton hugs the body beautifully and makes your little one feel completely comfortable. From newborn to toddler (approx. 0 – 48 months; 3.2 – 20.4 kg), you can use the super-practical Ergobaby Omni Dream in all four carrying positions, including the front carrying position facing the world (when baby has good head and neck control). Thanks to the padded shoulder straps and the lumbar-support waist belt, it is also ergonomic and back-friendly for you, and baby is also held in a spread-squat position in the baby carrier from birth, which has a positive effect on the development of the early childhood hip and spine. This is why our Omni Dream is even accredited by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute and Aktion Gesunder Rücken (campaign for healthier backs).

If you love the look of our new limited-edition Omni Dream Starry Galaxy then get your hands on it right away. This very special baby carrier has only been produced in a limited edition run for sustainability.
