ERGObaby® Carrier, an international babywearing brand widely used by Hollywood Celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Ethan Hawke, Orlando Bloom, PINK among others.
Born in the relaxed environment of Hawaii, first designed by Karin Frost, the ERGObaby® Original Carrier was developed for her son, applying proper ergonomics to a pragmatic need: carry your child close. She sought feedback from fellow parents, studied kids’ reactions to being carried—and found a ready audience of likeminded moms and dads.
The ergonomic design of the ERGObaby® Carrier supports the baby’s spine and hips while they are carried. It can be worn on the front (tummy-to-tummy), on the back , and in the hip position. The ERGObaby®Infant insert adapts the carrier for newborns between 7lbs (3kgs) and 12lbs (5.5 kgs) pounds. The back position is only best used from approximately 6 months of age, as long as the baby has strong and consistent head and neck control, and can be carried safely with legs comfortably and securely straddling the wearer’s waist. All ERGObaby Carriers have a hood to support your sleeping baby’s head, protects from sun and wind, and allows for privacy while nursing.
ERGObaby® products are available in selected SM Baby Company Stores nationwide- Rockwell, Podium, SM North Edsa Department Stores, SM North Edsa Annex, SM Makati, SM Mall of Asia, SM Las Piñas Department Stores, SM Las Piñas Annex, SM Pampanga, SM Megamall, SM Davao, SM Cebu Department Stores and SM Cebu Annex.

“This is a significant step forward for Reliv and for nutrition science,” said Dr. Carl Hastings, Reliv’s chief scientific officer. “As scientists learn more about the mechanisms that make soy a nutritional superfood, Reliv is proud to lead the way in making the fruits of these discoveries available to all.”
Reliv is a manufacturer and distributor of patented nutritional supplements in 15 countries worldwide. It is the first company selected by the
“A growing body of research shows that the lunasin peptide is one of the most important bioactive components of soy,” said Dr. Alfredo Galvez, the MPSC’s lead scientific advisor. “In creating LunaRich for Reliv, we have maximized lunasin levels in a soy powder.”
Dr. Galvez is a recipient of the 2010 PhilDev Award, given to outstanding Filipino-Americans in science and technology. He first discovered lunasin in 1996 during research at UC Berkley to improve the nutritional profile of soy protein. More than 40 peer-reviewed and published studies have documented lunasin’s health benefits. Research by 21 research institutions supported by 27 public and private funding sources has resulted in nine patents.
The amount of lunasin in soybeans varies significantly based on seed, soil and environment. The MPSC refines specially selected soybeans grown exclusively for Reliv to maximize levels of lunasin in LunaRich.
