I am head-over-heels in love with my Baby Bjorn! My son is just 3 months old and able to face forward, and we have the best time going on walks in it. He falls asleep in it without fail, as he loves the movement and being so close to mom. At the same time, when he is alert and riding it in, he loves to look around at the world and see that there is, in fact, life beyond our living room. :-) There was a period of time (from about 4-10 weeks) where he wanted nothing to do with it, as he still had to face me but was unusually alert for his age, so he hated staring at my chest for any period of time longer than 5 minutes. But for the first month (when he wasn't alert enough to care), it allowed me the freedom to do chores, work on the computer, or just let my arms have a break, and now that he's older, it allows us to go anywhere in seconds...so much easier than hauling out the stroller. My back feels great in it too, and he is already 16 pounds.I did a ridiculous amount of research on every single baby item we bought (even bottle brushes, no joke!), and this is the best!

This was nice occassionally for carrying around my newborn when he wouldn't nap on his own (or because of my own paranoia in wanting to know that he was with me and fine). I could do small errands around the house with him in it. I felt bad because I had to face him towards me and I always felt like he couldn't breathe well though he did fine.Now that he is 2.5 months, we've turned him to face outward. It is still a bit awkward because he is trying to hold his head up in it - once again, it works when it needs to but my baby usually fusses until I have been walking around with him for a few minutes - putting him in it is so difficult without someone else to help!

About Me First Time Parent
We have a baby girl, she's now almost 4 months old and this carrier was such a great buy! First thing: easy to adjust. I am quite short (1.6m), but my husband is quite tall (1.9m), so we always found hard to find a carrier that would be easy to adjust when transferring from one another. This one is easy, I don't have to spend ages in front of the mirror to adjust after my husband had used it. Second, it doesn't hurt my baby! Believe me or not, we have had another one, and the anchor support piece for the attachment of the head support was a bit pointy, and although I tried to be so careful, always poked my little one in the face, even on her eye once! Luckily it was just a little sore and nothing else! So, I never used it again! So scary! The Baby Bjorn carrier has nothing that can hurt your baby, all surfaces are smooth, all the hard plastic bits are round, so nothing to worry about when using it.I must say the colour is lovely! And yes, I do care about those things! ;-) We have the silver one and is just beautiful! The material is wonderful and soft. We live in a really hot place, and when I say hot, I mean close to the equator tropical, and I found this carrier to be the least hot for my baby. She's comfortable and has her full body supported without the need of a hard thick and uncomfortable fabric to do the job, and do well. This was the first carrier that I put my baby daughter in and she has not cried! Not at all. We also tried one of those wrap carriers, but my baby didi't like for a simple reason: it was NOT straight forward to put her in. She cried every time! This carrier will also be great when she's old enough to be facing outwards. I didn't like any of the other ones that had this option too for a simple reason: the hard fabric in between the legs - not comfortable at all poor things! The One Air is made of such nice fabric, soft yet resistant, that I can see now that she spent cry at all simply cause she's comfy! We're very happy with this carrier!
I would buy this product again

Nice present for a baby shower

About Me Parent of Two or More Children, Working Parent
This works great! It makes it so much easier to run errands with the baby and my toddler at the same time.It is also pretty comfortable and easy to take on and off without any help. I was also able to use it between my husband and I without having to adjust it, which is great since we are two different sizes.

I was very excited that it got here. I also bought the cover for when it's bad weather and I am so happy that I finally can use a carrier with my son. It makes life so much easier, both chores at home and going out for a walk! Our stroller is pretty big and clumsy if you just need to run to the store or take a small walk.
I would recommend this product
We wanted this product for walking on holiday but also for popping out locally without having to take the pram. After familiarising yourself with how to wear the carrier it is very easy to use and put on by yourself. I like the fact that the carrier is three way so will adapt with as the baby grows.
I use this all the time. It's great when we go grocery shopping or to crowded places when the stroller is just too bulky. It has also been a big help when she has been fussy and house work needs to get done. It's simple to use and we find changing sizes between myself and my husband easy.

I use this carrier at least twice a day! Around the house, at the store, while at family gatherings, you name it! It is so comfortable and feels like my daughter is super secure. I would highly recommend it.

This was the best out of ALL the ones we tried!
By Mom to Lux
from Atlanta, GA
My husband and I were first time parents 18 months ago and had no idea what carrier to register for. There are about a million different ones and we were pretty lost. We figured the only way to make a decision was to try them ALL out. So we ended up trying the ergo, ergo 360, original baby bjorn, lillibaby complete, moby, ring sling, baby katan and a sling by seven slings. Here's what we loved/didnt like about each. Original ergo: LOVED the pocket. Hated that baby couldn't face out and see the world when she was older. Ergo 360: I really loved it but it was much harder for me to put on and take off because the ergo uses buttons instead of the clips like those used on the baby bjorn. Also, the baby bjorn one felt a little sturdier to me. Finally, we liked the baby bjorn one more because we didn't need a separate newborn insert like you need for the ergo. Baby katan: didn't feel sturdy to me. And it stretched out the longer I wore it so I felt like baby wasn't really secure. Original baby bjorn: we loved it because it was a little smaller than the One but we really liked the waist strap on the one so the babies weight is evenly distributed. Moby wrap: wayyyy to much fabric! Too hot for the south and too much of a learning curve for me. I wanted something easier to put on and take off. Lillibaby complete: too bulky for me and I found it difficult to take on and off alone. Seven slings: NO stretch. Didn't look comfy for baby and definitely wasn't comfy for me. Long story short, the baby bjorn one felt sturdiest to us, we loved the clips versus buttons, it wasn't complicated to put on and take off, and it was the most comfortable to wear. Also, it fit my husband and I both really well even though he is 6'4 and I'm 5'2. It was VERY easy to adjust for our respect We now have an almost two year old and we still hike with her in the baby bjorn one. Expecting baby #2 and excited to be able to use this carrier from the start with no need for a newborn insert!

Love it! It doesn't work with newborn baby's as they're too small to properly fit in it. Two or three months is better. But my baby is five months now and loves it. He would rather be carried than pushed in a stroller so we've gotten a lot of use out of it. For smaller baby's, love that you can pull the front down so they can see better. My baby loves to chew on that flap. Wish there were more pockets in it thigh.
