Ergo 360 vs Tula ?? A.V.N. 2 kids; 4112 posts
Oct 13th

Can anyone fill me in on the merits of either one ?  I tried out a Tula this weekend and really liked it, but I haven't gotten to try out the 360.  The one feature that the 360 has that the Tula doesn't is the option for baby to face out.  Of course, a lot of baby wearing experts are saying that facing out is dangerous?  Anyone have any insight on this matter, too?  Someone help me decide !   Thanks ladies.

Facing outward in most carriers can put stress on the hips and if a child has a minor undiagnosed case of hip dysplasia it can make it worse. Also, the spine should be in a c curve forward, when put in most forward facing carriers the spine is straightened or curved the wrong way putting stress on it. 

If you are looking for a carrier to face outwards as well as in, I would suggest looking into the Hipster Plus by MiaMily. It's the only carrier that's approved by the international hip dysplasia institute and because of the seat the spine curves correctly....and it can be used as just a hip seat it's pretty neat. 08a39a2d424c4bb0bad6b6b9e01765f0.jpg

I also use the boba 4g, similar to the Tula. However I've read that the tula has longer padding on the shoulder straps.

Baby shouldn't be facing out. A lot of carriers will say they can, but they shouldn't.

Over ergo 360 and Tula, I'd go with the Tula. But ergo original or Tula, definitely the ergo. The ergo 360 doesn't have as high of a weight limit as the other 2. I hated the Velcro s***p o* the 360. It kept touching my clothes and left all my tops bobbly at the bottom. I've tried a LOT of different carriers, and my favourite by far is the ergo original
