Advantages: No back ache! easy to put on and take off!
I had one of these carriers with my first child and they are brilliant. Baby Bjorn really thought about the parents when designing it. Special concideration for backs makes wearing it so easy. I got a sling recently for my second child and took him into town in it because it's hard to get buggies on and off the train. By the end of the day I was trying my best to hold back tears. My back felt broken and I had been wearing it exactly as the instructions said to. I couldn't believe the pain I was in. Also I had spent most of the day holding it off the sides of his face. Needless to say I have gone back to using the baby carrier.
There are some nice new desings out too. All very trendy. I found the Chocolate brown one on ebay rather cheap. The usual price I was finding in the shops was about £40-45. It's lovely to have a newborn so close to you in almost a skin to skin type of cuddle whilst you've still got two hands free. When they get a little bit older they can face either way so you can have the cuddle way or facing outwards to see the world. Be carefull when using these as I have once or twice bumped into things and obviously with baby on the front it was actually him bumping things. Mind you it was only a tap but could have been worse had I not been paying attention.
Many people who ask about these carriers want first of all to know how easy it is to put baby into and out of them. It's quite simple really. Attach the back straps and then there is a hip strap on the baby bit of mine which you hook into place. Lift baby and slide legs though the hip bit to sit them into the holder and then bring the back rest up and snap that into place.
What Baby Bjorn say:
1)Provides the vital closeness between parent and baby
3)Baby can face inwards or outwards
Makes it a bit easier to keep up with an older child when the younger one is attached to you. I've even used it in the house before when the little one didn't want to be placed down anywhere. Gave me two free hands to get the washing sorted with or make that all important cup of tea.
