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!

Comments about BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Original - Black:
I bought both the Baby Bjorn and a "wrap" baby carrier, and preferred the Baby Bjorn 100%. The ease of just popping your baby right in and not have to worry about wrapping or tying is wonderful. It's comfortable to wear and very easy to get baby in and out. My one complaint would be when my baby was very small still, between 3 weeks to about 15 weeks (and even sometimes past 15 weeks) her head placement could be flat down on my chest and I worried about suffocation. I've read reviews on other carriers that have less concerns of this due to how they are designed. But the other carriers were double the price. I was happy with my Baby Bjorn just mindful of her head position. And she loves it we go for a walk in it at least once a day. It's also perfect for around the house when she doesn't want to be put down but I have chores or household items to do. I would recommend!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Needed a sling to carry around our newborn for quick errands. I haven't used any other carriers, but I can't imagine that others are as easy to use and well designed as this. Baby will be very secure in this. Only takes a minute to secure your little one in this once you read through the directions once.
I would buy this product again and again

Extremely easy to use and navigate. Baby is super comfortable and so is adult wearing baby.
Easy to use and comfortable for Mom and baby
This is going to be a life saver! I've only used it once, but can't wait for another opportunity to use it again.

I tried it on as soon as we got it home. Although the directions for every single baby item ever made ever always seems like it's missing information or a step, it is quite simple to look up on YouTube.I can't wait to tote my little boy in this once he is born. Padding is nice for the shoulders, and it seems quite secure.
Sturdy carrier, great for baby!

Best carrier available!!!

About Me First Time Parent, Working Parent
The baby Bjorne was recommended by a friend and I am very grateful for it. It is an amazing product that is easy to put on, alter to both my wife and I, and puts our baby boy to sleep every time. This is a must for all parents that like to get out there and still have a social life.

This is an amazing alternative to lugging around my giant stroller.

I bought the Baby Bjorn after trying both the Ergo Baby Carroee and the Moby wrap. I was thrilled that I finally found a holder that worked for us! After my first 2 baby wearing failures, this holder allows me to work around the house while my baby boy drifts off to sleep. Unfortunately, it's not the most comfortable for "Mom," but it's the best - by far - for my infant.
I would definitely buy it again

Very confortable and steady baby carrier. Looks great too.
