BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier Original - The easy-to-use classic designThe BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier Original is a small and easy-to-use baby carrier. It's developed specifically to fit your baby right from birth and to provide the essential closeness between you and your newborn child. This front-positioned baby carrier is easy to put on and take off with only a few adjustments. Suitable from newborn.
Easy to use
The baby carrier is easy to put on and take off with only a few adjustments conveniently made in front. The strong, well-designed latches click securely and are easy to release with one hand. The two-part design makes it easy to place your baby in the baby carrier unassisted, and allows you to lift your sleeping baby out without waking him or her.
Provides closeness and contact
The Baby Carrier Original helps you maintain close contact with your infant and reinforce the parent-child bond from the very beginning. You carry your baby high up on your chest and close to your heart. While the warmth of your body and the sound of your heart and voice soothe your newborn baby, you, as a parent, will learn to recognize and understand your baby's needs.
Perfect fit from newborn
Specially designed to fit your baby right from birth, the Baby Carrier Original has a firm, adjustable head support for secure and proper support of the baby's head and neck. The legs and hips are positioned in an ergonomically correct position that is recommended by paediatricians. Your child is carried in an upright position, which keeps airways free and allows you to check on your baby's breathing.
From 5 months of age you can fold down the head support and start carrying your child facing outwards for shorter periods. At this age, the baby's neck muscles, as well as hips and spine, are sufficiently developed. And most babies this age are excited to be able to see what is going on around them, while staying safe and close to their parent.
Developed with paediatricians
The Baby Carrier Original is developed in close collaboration with world leading paediatricians to ensure correct support and perfect fit for your growing baby from age newborn.
Choose between two fabricsThe BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier Original comes in two different fabrics--soft cotton and breathable mesh.
A high quality cotton that feels soft and comfortable against baby's skin. Made of 100% cotton.
The ideal choice for a warmer climate. This specially developed 3-D mesh has excellent breathability and moisture-transporting qualities to keep both you and your baby cool and comfortable. The baby carrier in mesh fabric also dries rapidly after washing. Made of 100% polyester.
Safe and tested materials
All fabrics and materials used in Baby Carrier Original are kind to your baby's delicate skin and completely harmless to taste or chew. The fabrics are Oeko-Tex Standard 100, class 1 approved, an international safety standard for textiles, and contain no health-hazardous substances.
The Baby Carrier Original meets both European and American safety standards, EN 13209-2:2005 and ASTM F2236.
Easy to wash
The Baby Carrier Original is easy to machine wash at 40°C (warm).
You can use the Baby Carrier Original from birth, at least 3.5 kg/53 cm (8 lb/21 in) up to 11 kg (25 lb). Please note that the minimum age for outwards carrying is 5 months.

When you're a first time parent, it's very hard to know which brands to trust. I know everyone praises lots of big brand names, but sometimes you think "is it really worth the hype and money?". With the BABYBJÖRN Original Baby Carrier? Yes. Yes it is worth every penny.
It is exceptionally easy to adjust to your preferences, baby and parent included. Easy to put on (I just slide mine on like a jumper). Remarkably comfortable, as it's made from breathable, organic cotton. And my baby actually loves it! Before the Original Baby Carrier, every other baby carrier I have tried, my baby got very upset being in them, or actually ended up having sore hips. This one, he loves. We're still using it facing towards the parent, rather than facing outwards. But he loves it nonetheless. He just keeps looking over the side at the world going by, and is comfortable knowing I'm close by. Our family love it. It has been an absolute saviour when I'm trying to do housework, and handle a four month old baby. Or even on certain trips where a pushchair is inconvenient.
I really wish I did go for the BABYBJÖRN from the start, rather than fearing the price.
EDIT: We are now using it face forwards. And I have mastered of putting the carrier on one handed, while holding the baby in the other. Loving this carrier more than ever, as for some reason the little one decided he hates sitting in the pushchair for longer than an hour.Read more ›
Walking my dog whilst keeping my baby in the Bjorn is no hassle. Doing a shop is no problem. Even on days when nothing is going right, I just pop the baby in the carrier and tasks that need doing because a lot easier. I love how close I have my son snuggled up to me. I used the Bjorn daily for months when my son was a newborn.
Don't get me wrong, baby loves this (has from birth and is now front facing and very happy in it) but I can't wear it for long before I get backache and have to take it off.
The bjorn is not ergonomic, it does not distribute the weight well, meaning once the baby is past the newborn stage, or even during it, the carrier is uncomfortable for the wearer and can result in back pain, which sometimes only occurs after the carrier is no longer being worn.
The carrier also holds the baby in a position which is not good for their spine, they are effectively dangling by the crotch, putting all their weight on the testes (boys) or pubic bone (girls), and the hips are in an unnatural position, which can cause or exacerbate hip problems (including hip dysplasia)
Last of all, the carrier is not good for more than the first few months. Most parents find the carrier can not comfortably carry their baby once they are more than around 6 months old (if that)
For a much better sling you really should look for something like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/EllaRoo-Wrap-Christiane-Small-Medium/dp/B004JACZ46/ref=sr_1_2?s=baby&ie=UTF8&qid=1403380193&sr=1-2&keywords=EllaRoo+Wrap
