FIRST LOOK: Baby Bjorn Comfort Carrier

BABYBJORN Comfort Carrier LS2 223x300 FIRST LOOK: Baby Bjorn Comfort Carrier

If you’re shopping around for a new baby carrier, allow us to introduce the newest Bjorn on the block. We know, you’ve seen a zillion other Bjorns and you can’t possibly imagine how this one would be any different or better — we initially felt the same way. We’re all for giving smaller baby-carrying companies a fair shot against the monstrously popular Baby Bjorn, but we can’t ignore our love for the newest model recently added to their elite line.

Besides the fact it’s made of organic materials for a safer snuggling experience, it’s designed to last well past the baby stage — a major plus for such a pricey investment — from 13 to 31 pounds. Like other older-baby carriers, it’s designed to transfer the child’s weight to your waist instead of your shoulders, made extra comfy with thick padding. (Even 10 pounds can feel like 100 after an hour of baby wearing.) And like other Baby Bjorns, it’s durable, adjustable and stylish.

However, here’s where it really differs from the pack: Besides the standard forward- and backward-facing Bjorn positions (love ‘em or hate ‘em, we know), older kids can opt for a zipper-on attachment that wraps their legs around the parent for a more natural and comfortable carrying position that brings the center of gravity toward your body (see above picture).

Bottom line: When you purchase a Bjorn, you’re not just getting the name. There’s a reason mothers keep coming back to their well-loved, easy-to-use design — and now there’s an added level of comfort to last the long haul. On the downside, it’ll cost you almost double what some other carriers are going for — but if you can swing it, you won’t regret it.

Get it from Amazon for $200.

This is brilliant! My children are all past the stage where I can use this but there are so many days even know when my daughter is 2 1/2 and wants to just curl up on my shoulder for a little nap that I had a carrier like this. I just don’t think the backpacks are half as comfortable for the child and I just love how this lets the little one wrap the legs around the parent just as they naturally do!

Fabulous! My 2 1/2 year old is 31# now so too big, but I am getting this one for sure for #2. I had to buy an ergo baby when my daughter was 1yr as I just couldn’t carry her in the original anymore. Not a huge fan of the Ergo, as I liked the ease of getting the baby in and out of the Bjorn- Ergo is difficult with a squirming little one in and out.
