Summary: I purchased this when my little chunkster was 2 weeks old, he is now 8 months and I have used the baby bjorn for football games, disneyworld vacation, the beach, etc.. Due to reaccuring back pains from a car accident years ago I often couldn't hold my son for long periods fo time, but now I am able to hold him for longer periods of time as well as hold him close.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy Use, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: This is a brilliant carrier, very comfortable. I bought it as my partner and I both suffer from painful backs from time to time and this has the extra lumber support which really makes a difference. It is well worth the price and baby slips in easily and feels secure.
Summary: It seems horrible to hang them. I can't imagine I would want to sit like that. Look to the beco or ergo for a better option of a Soft structured carrier, or wraps and slings. This is terrible for their hips.
Summary: Great for newborn when facing parent but as soon as my son was about three months old and therefore outward facing, the carrier did not support his hips (babies legs should be in frog position with knees higher than hips when in carrier). This carrier placed undue stress on his spine and groin making it inappropriate to carry him for long periods. My average sized son was at the weight limit of 12kg by the age of 1.
Summary: I found this carrier easy to put together when it first arrived, and was glad to find that we could adjust it enough for both my husband and myself to use. So far, I have used the carrier around the house on days when baby was being particularly clingy and found it really useful. Have only used it for a short trip out to a doctors appointment-found it comfortable and baby seems to love it, but all the weight seems to pull on your shoulders and not sure how much the extra...
Summary: Having had an emergency c-section, this baby carrier has been invaluable. It has allowed me to carry the baby and go out for short walks soon after the operation, without need for anyone else to be around and help out. Baby can also be carried by his dad, helping them to bond. In addition, we can take baby on walks on surfaces where the stroller would not have been an option, so it's proving really useful.
