Not good for baby's back.

  • Summary: I tried this carrier as it seemed to be in mainstream shops and people liked it. It wasn't for me *at all*. Dangling my child from the crotch is bad for her back - every other carrier out there seems to stress the point that a baby should be supported from knee to knee to ensure that no undue pressure is put on their spine. This is reaffirmed by the fact that a newborn will tuck his legs up into the 'froggy' position when picked up under the armpits.
  • Pros: As with any carrier - hands free baby carrying.
  • Cons: The 'crotch dangling' design of all Baby Bjorns means the baby is not supported across the bottom, it is dangling, literally, from the crotch which is an unnatural position and is not good for their backs.

EXPENSIVE - BUT THE BEST I'VE TRIED

  • Summary: i wish i had tried this first and not bothered trying to save money with the cheaper versions - it is easy to use - simple to get baby in and out - comfy and very supportive for baby and the best comfort by far for mummy or daddy's back - i have reccommended this too all my friends
  • Pros: Back / Lumbar support is second to none - i used mine until my daughter was 16 months and i never got back ache once - i have used Tomy, Mothercare, Chicco and had to stop once baby was past 10 weeks as the backahce was too much
  • Cons: Expensive - but considering i got 16 months use out of it - whereas i only got a few weeks use out of cheaper versions meant it was well worth the extra cost

WELL WORTH THE MONEY!

  • Summary: Fantastic value, although seemed expensive at the time. I wear mine loads and don't really use his pushchair much anymore.
  • Pros: Supports your back really well, and baby feels really secure in it. Nicely padded, and looks really comfy for baby. Easy to adjust for different height wearers, and to accommodate growing baby.
  • Cons: None

EXPENSIVE BUT HANDY!

Lea, Made for Mums

  • Summary: It gives your back a break but not your purse. If you can afford it then i'd recommend it.
  • Pros: You can have both hands free which makes it easier to trek through busy shops. Keeps newborns close and snuggly. Comfortable. Easy on/off.
  • Cons: Cannot carry baby on your back. Flap flips up in the front facing position. Blocks baby's view.

  • Pros: Easy for user tp put on / take off.
  • Cons: Difficult to adjust to accommodate child growth/ different thicknesses of clothes. Feels a bit hard and rigid. Had a much cheaper carrier with my first child and found it more comfortable and cosy than the expensive baby bjorn.
