BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One Review
Since my first baby, I’ve been a big fan of baby wearing so we were delighted to be sent the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One Review to use with my second baby.
In the early days, baby-wearing meant I could have my babies close to me, knowing that they were safe and secure. It also gave me the freedom to be able to do other things with my free hands while I was carrying them – like the laundry! My babies were not great sleepers in the beginning but I found wearing them in a carrier sent them to sleep very easily and saved me pacing and rocking.
I loved to use my sling in the newborn months but my husband just couldn’t quite master it. It just wasn’t comfortable for him to use but he thinks the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One is so much easier.
You literally just fasten the waist strap, slip the carrier on over your head like a jumper, pop the baby in and fasten the buttons to the side at top!
The BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One is an ergonomic baby carrier with a wide seat area. It’s also been acknowledged as a hip-healthy baby carrier by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute and this was so important to me.
The waist band easily clips into place and, as with all of the straps, can be adjusted both ways so easily to get baby in and out.
We both use this carrier so it was also essential to be able to adjust the straps easily as myself and my husband have different physical requirements.
My baby boy has just turned 1 and for a while we’ve been wearing him facing us but as he’s gotten bigger, and nosier, we now wear him facing outwards too. We tend to wear him facing us when we know he’s getting sleepy, or it’s nap time, as I like being able to check on him and see his face when he’s asleep.
The carrier is so comfortable and I have back issues so needed a carrier that is really supportive and isn’t going to aggravate my back ache.
One thing I love about this carrier is that it’s suitable for babies from Newborn to 3 years old (3.5-15kgs) and as Mini grows into a toddler, we will start to wear him on our backs instead – he’ll love that!
Despite looking like a big carrier compared to my compact sling, it’s actually very lightweight too.
The only downside I’ve found to it is that it’s quite bulky in size and I did like being able to roll up my sling and slot it into my changing bag. That said, if we’re out and about we are either wearing Mini in the sling or it easily fits in the basket under the stroller so the size isn’t a big deal. It does roll up to quite a neat size.
