Comfort for me?
I have a horrible back, and babywearing is not ideal for me, but I continue to do it everyday because it is easier to get around the city with an infant and a toddler if I am wearing the baby. With that said no carrier is extremely comfortable when strapping 16 plus pounds on. The BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One is comfortable while I am wearing it but once I take it off in the evenings my back is a bit sore, but I blame that on the baby not the carrier.
Is it weather appropriate?
The thickness of the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One made it a bit hot during the peak of the summertime heat, but for the other weeks of the summer and the cooler seasons the carrier would be ideal. It does not have a rain/sun shield so I had to buy a hat for the baby. I can also easily wear a jacket over the carrier to keep myself warm during chilly days.
Baby Bjorn Carrier One Review
I am a second time stay at home mom, who lives in the city and travels by airplane with the kids often. I use a baby carrier on a daily basis, my husband uses a baby carrier a few times a week and our babysitter uses a baby carrier a few times a week. It is best if we all can use the same carrier without too many adjustments when transferring the baby back and forth. It will also be best if the baby carrier can be used from birth to toddlerhood right from the box without any additional attachment purchases. With all those facts in mind here is my baby carrier checklist for all carriers that I review.
Is it easy to put the carrier on by yourself?
Yes, I don’t need any help putting on the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One. It has one buckle that needs to be attached around the waist and two upper connectors to secure the babies head in. It does take a few try’s to get used to putting the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One on. It kinda goes on like a tee shirt, and one false move you can be a tangled mess. But, once you have learned the trick it is a very easy to do by yourself.
