I agree with Andrea. I did a LOT of research about which baby carrier to purchase, and the Bjorn fails to tilt the baby’s hips so that their weight is not hanging on their pelvis. There are many superior alternatives. I personally went for the Ergo, which we still use for our 3 year old. I am using a wrap, like the Moby Wrap, for my 3 month old. It is even more comfortable than the Ergo!
Now in its third generation, Ergobaby’s Original Collection baby carrier is the ultimate in comfort thanks to the ergonomically-correct design for both parent and baby. Designed for use from birth with the Infant Insert (sold separately) up to 45 pounds, this versatile carrier can be worn in the front, at the hip, or on the back. The carrier balances baby’s weight between parent’s shoulders and hips for optimum comfort, and features high-density padding and straps that adjust for the ideal mutual fit. Secure buckles and reinforcements at critical intersections allow for a safe fit and a comfortable ride.
The Baby Carrier ONE from BabyBjörn is a multifunctional front and back baby carrier. All included fabrics are kind to your baby’s skin and safe to taste. Guaranteed free from health hazardous substances and approved according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100, class 1 for baby products.
I would skip this design of a baby carrier all together. The legs being lower than the bum is bad ergonomic form for an infant. The boba, beco, tula ect all have really great designs that are similarly priced, better constructed, and will outlast the usefulness of this carrier. Also the facing out isn’t ideal because they baby cannot turn away from the world when over stimulation occurs.
