Excellent quality carrier
on 7 May 2015
This carrier is fantastic. We wanted a sturdy carrier that would last and having looked at several carriers, Baby Bjorn seemed like a good option. My husband does a lot of sport and wanted something suitable for carrying her on walks for several hours, so the Carrier One seemed ideal. I would definitely recommend having someone with you the first time you use the carrier, as I didn't find it easy to adjust once our baby was in the carrier, so it took us a while to get all the straps adjusted appropriately. However, once the carrier had been adjusted to fit me and my baby it was very easy to get on and off - it pulls on over the head like a jumper and the baby section can be unclipped to allow one person to easily position the baby. This also allows removal of the baby without waking her if she falls asleep. We are currently only using it as an inward-facing newborn carrier, but it looks easy to switch to the other positions and I think will be a great investment as it will grow with our daughter. It appears to be of good quality, is machine washable and feels safe and sturdy. I feel confident when using it and don't feel concerned about her slipping.
It isn't the cheapest product, but I think it will be worth the money as we started using it when our daughter was a few weeks old and will hopefully continue to use it in to her toddler years.
Overall I would definitely buy this product again and would recommend it for parents who spend a lot of time outdoors.
Addition - our baby was diagnosed with hip problems and is now in a harness to address this. It is worth noting that her paediatrician advised us that we couldn't use slings or some baby carriers as it would push her hips in to the wrong position and put stress on the joints. However we showed her our Baby Bjorn carrier and she said it is fine to continue using as it holds our daughter's hips in 'the optimal position for joint development'. If anyone else has a child with hip problems then it may help you to know that this is still safe to use!
