BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One Review And Giveaway
Disclaimer: I was sent one BabyBjorn Carrier One Baby Carrier for my honest review which I have given. I will only recommend products and services that will benefit my readers.
Bonding with your baby is one of the things every mom longs to do and babywearing is one of the top ways that a parent can do that! All babies have a need for closeness after they are born and wearing your baby close to your heart is certainly very comforting to your baby (and to mom, too)! What a great way to transition from the womb to the world!
When I was asked to do a review of the BabyBjorn Carrier One Baby Carrier, I was so excited!! My daughter is due with her first baby in December and a Baby Carrier was one of her top most wanted items. But there are so many different types of Baby Carriers on the market and we just didn’t know where to begin. We knew that the Carrier must be made well, comfortable for baby and for the person wearing the Carrier, easy to clean, and one that could be used for a long duration.
The BabyBjorn Carrier One Baby Carrier is all that and more! No kidding, this Baby Carrier is awesome!! Yesterday we had a baby shower for my daughter and her sister in law by marriage was there with her 6 month old daughter, Camryn. We decided to break out the BabyBjorn Carrier One Baby Carrier and give it a try. We all took turns carrying Camryn around to see if she liked it and if we could handle it. Wow!! I wish I had had one of these when my kids were little!! I think about how much I could have accomplished while still being close to my babies. My first daughter had her kids 18 months apart and this sure would have come in handy when trying to go to the grocery store!! Having two kids in one cart left no room for groceries!
Here are a few of the product details:
- Multifunctional front and back baby carrier provides you with 4 different carry positions
- Optimal newborn position-Carry your newborn high up on your chest, close to your heart.
- Inward-facing comfort-Ergonomically designed for both you and your growing baby
- Outward-facing option-Explore the world together when your child is ready (Minimum 5-months-old)
- Easy back carrying
The BabyBjorn Carrier One can accomodate newborns that weigh 8 lbs. and are 21″ long to kids that weigh 33 lbs. and are 39″. The one thing that I love about this carrier is that there is a setting for newborns and a setting for babies and toddlers. You do not need to buy any additional inserts to accommodate newborns! There is also a leg zipper that allows a natural leg position for newborns (0-4 months old) facing inward and for children 5 months and older in an outward facing postion and a normal (wide) leg position for babies 4-36 months old.
Wearing your baby has never been easier and with the Carrier One you have a few different options about the way you choose to carry. Babies can be worn on your chest and they can face either inward or outward. The minimum age for carrying your baby in the outward position is 5 months and/or 26 lbs. After they reach 26 lbs., you should carry them on your back. You can easily do this step by yourself, too…no extra hands needed!
Another feature that I love with the BabyBjorn Carrier One is the amount of padding that this thing has!! It makes the carrier so much more comfortable for baby and with the extra padding in the shoulder straps, it makes it very comfortable for the parents as well! Baby’s weight is evenly distributed with this carrier (there is a strap that goes around the parent’s waist) and this will help to prevent back, leg and hip pain!
Another great feature for this over protective Grammy is the fact that all of the buckles make a clicking sound. I love this feature because you can insure that you have secured everything correctly and baby will not come tumbling out! You can also take the carrier off over your head instead of having to reach around back and undo everything.
And if that aren’t enough features for you, the BabyBjorn Carrier One can be folded up compactly so that is easy to stick in your diaper bag or transport easily.
The BabyBjorn Carrier One took over 3 years to develop. That means that a lot of thought went into the design! It was released to the public on October 1. The versatility of this carrier can not be matched!! The ease of use, the comfort and the fact that it will grow with your child make it the perfect carrier for anyone wanting to become a babywearer!!
