Baby Bjorn Carrier One Review.
Product: Carrier One.
Size: H58 x W160 x 1cm; 1kg.
Design and Style.
The carrier one is truly one of the best in the market. Suitable from birth up to 15kg which is around 3 years, but it does depend on your baby as well.
This means right from the beginning you can use the Carrier One when you are going out. Taking the stroller all the time might not be the best option for you.
You can buy a cheaper stroller and an easier stroller to use if you have this one. Weighing only 1kg and the dimensions makes it easy to store.
A so-called excellent carrying comfort. The waist belt is also designed in a way to relieve pressure from your back when carrying your little one, and it has an ergonomic position to make things better.
The adjustable head support is integrated with the carrier. This is there to provide support for your little one’s head and neck. When not in use you fold it and tuck it away.
Mostly for when your child is older. It can be folded downwards and upwards, in whichever way suits your baby.
According to the manufacturers, the Baby Bjorn Carrier One is hip-friendly, which means it has been tested by experts who approve of it.
This means your baby’s hip and spine is good and won’t be harmed. The carrier also helps to develop your little one’s hips.
Cotten blend is used for the production of this product. This means it offers softness and flexibility for your little munchkin.
Eco-friendly materials make the carrier even better. It has three colours and these are Black, Grey and Leopard. Easy matchable with many strollers.
When dirty you can use the washing machine to wash it which is great. You will have it clean and ready every time you are going out.
Carrier One 4 Positions.
It offers all 4 positions. Which are front-facing – inwards, front-facing – outwards, Side facing and back facing. The minimum age for the outward front-facing is 5 months and a maximum of 12kg.
Manufacturers recommend for parents to use leg straps to tighten the legs for children who are between 3.5 to 4.5kg. The Baby Bjorn Carrier One has two height positions.
The upper height position is for newborns up to 3.5kg because it should be closer to you and your baby should face you. The carrier is positioned right if you can touch your baby’s head with your chin.
The leg positions are ergonomic to help with your baby’s hips. It has a so-called M-position.
Carrier One is designed in a way that makes it easy for you to switch and carry your baby on the sides or your back. Baby Bjorn recommend for you to carry your baby on your back when they are 12 months.
At that time they are heavier and your back is much stronger, and your baby at this age is comfortable in their movements as well.
So it’s safer too.
- Expensive carrier compared to many out there.
- It’s a bit bulky, so storing it in some very tiny places might not work out.
- Some parts and adjustments take time to learn and master.
- No accessories such as sunshade, pockets, pouch, etc are included.
- Only three colours are available.
- The ability to breastfeed while your baby is on it is not available.
- Not available for 4-year-olds.
Baby Bjorn Carrier One vs Carrier Air.
Both carriers are made of the same features, but the main difference is the material. Carrier One has a cotton blend that is flexible and soft, but the latter has 3D mesh.
3D mesh is good for those who live in hot climates and when it’s summer. It provides more ventilation for your little one when the weather is really hot.
This does make Carrier Air better in this regard, but equal in other features. The colours are also different for the Air baby carrier.
For being newer it’s more expensive.
The fabrics and materials are thinner which makes Carrier Air less bulky and easier to carry and store. You also have a higher headrest than the Carrier One.
To save the environment Carrier Air uses less padding and fabrics. Carrier One would be better for the winter because it’s stuffed with more fabrics making it warm for your infant.
These are the only differences, which is not that much. If you can afford the Carrier Air is good to go for it.
Do you know that Carrier One has an almost unique feature compared to most carriers? You can swiftly carry your baby to the back from the front on your own and without any help from your partner.
This means your use the carrier anytime and change to any position when are out alone. This makes it convenient and suitable for many single parents as well.
Although, its pricey is does come with many features carriers are designed with. Add some minor accessories and you are good to go.
Which of the above carriers would you be buying? I will still recommend the Carrier One because it is still one of the best baby carriers in the market.
