Not good for baby's back.

helen coulson, Made for Mums
22 July 2010
  • 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...
  • 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

toniseventyseven, Made for Mums
11 February 2009
  • 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!

eleanor o'connor, Made for Mums
6 May 2006
  • 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
18 November 2005
  • 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.

" Good but limited use…"

bacon85, Mumsnet
22 June 2014
  • Excerpt: This was great for a few weeks, easy to use and comfortable but by about 8 weeks we found our baby was too heavy to carry for more than 10 mins. He is a big baby, 91st centile but I still expected to get more use out of it given the price and reputation.

" Given as gift but selling it to buy better carrier…"

ggnatty, Mumsnet
5 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Given as gift & looked impressive. Turns out lumbar support does not support, in fact we find that all weight is beared around lower back/waist not on shoulders. Back panel readjusts itself as your wearing it, thus might fit at beginning of walk, by end your in pain.

" Dangles baby from crotch and hurts my shoulders!…"

mosonoonan, Mumsnet
22 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I like the simplicity of design and ease of use of the Baby Bjorn Active but that's where it ends. I don't understand why these carriers are so popular considering the crotch-dangling position is so unergonomic for babies, it puts undue pressure on their spines.

" Great for dog walking…"

sophmiester, Mumsnet
5 May 2012
  • Excerpt: We needed a carrier as I have two dogs and walk at the woods everyday so taking the pushchair out is not an option. Our son has been using since his first day home and he loves it, most of the time he falls asleep when I take him out in it.

" To be honest was highly unimpressed especially for the price.…"

kittenob, Mumsnet
20 January 2012
  • Excerpt: To be honest was highly unimpressed especially for the price. The positioning for the baby is not great they are held in place via the crutch area and not supported in order to keep the optimum position of being knee to knee.
