Baby’s not here yet, but from most everything I’ve read, it seems like it isn’t necessary, and is sometimes just a pain to deal with, so we didn’t buy one. I figure if it  turns out he’d benefit from it, we can pick one up anytime, but it appears a lot of people never needed one.

We got one b/c we needed a solution for baby carrying during the infant weeks/months before baby can go in the Ergo on her own.  Baby’s not here yet, so I can’t give a full review yet unfortunately.  I can say that most of the negative reviews involve the fact that the infant insert is very thick, so babies can overheat in it very easily.  We’re counting on the fact that northern california weather is usually very mild, and it doesn’t often get really hot here.  We’ll see how that goes though…  I think a lot of people buy a sling like a Moby or similar product to use until baby fits into the Ergo, but that seemed complicated to me.

We used the insert when our LO was a newborn until he was about 4 1/2 months old. He was 8 weeks early but still weighed almost 6 pounds when he was born. Without the insert he seemed to get swallowed up in the pouch. The insert was very useful in the early stages with head support & keeping LO swaddled while being carried. Later when he gained weight & seemed squished but not yet big enough yet, there is a small pillow attached to the insert that you can use to give LO more height, but you could also use a thin blanket to get the same effect.

My LO hates the infant insert :/ but he also has always hated swaddling… I’m waiting for him to enjoy or at least tolerate the Ergo. He’s 3 months old next week.
