If you’ve just had a baby or you’re about to, you absolutely must get a baby carrier, particularly the Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier. It’s a total lifesaver, especially in the beginning when your baby is small. I loved that I could easily carry my newborn daughter safely in it as it completely supports a baby’s fragile neck.
Babies love to be close to their mommies so it also helped me to have a chance to do more while I held her. Nothing is more difficult than going out with a new baby and having your hands full of baby. Or even being at home and just trying to do some small tasks… you can’t do that if you’re busy holding the baby.
For my first daughter, we’d been given a carrier by a different brand, Combi. While it certainly gave us a hands-free baby-holding experience, we experienced difficulty in regards to back pain. It didn’t have support in the back so often I was left with back, neck and shoulder pain. It was also very difficult to put on and often required the assistance of someone else to snap the clasp in the back shut.
When I got pregnant with our second daughter, my husband and I promptly got a Baby Björn Baby Carrier because so many other parents had recommended it. We were thrilled that we could easily hold our second child without all the pain we’d endured from holding our first in the other carrier. The Baby Björn Baby Carrier didn’t cause my back to ache. And it was easy to adjust and put on, even when I was by myself with my baby.
It is machine washable so for those spit-up moments, you can toss it in the wash for easy clean up. It also adjusts so you can wear it with baby facing toward you or toward the world so she sees what you see, if she’s feeling adventurous that is. The Baby Björn Baby Carrier also adjusts to fit your baby as she grows. We used ours until she had reached the maximum weight of 25 lbs.
This is a great carrier and a must-have for any new parent!
