I tried the BabyBjorn Synergy Baby Carrier Mesh in black a couple of weeks ago with my niece and have since used it numerous times.
When my sister first showed me it she made me stand in front of the mirror and made out it was going to be a lesson to learn the art of getting it on and off and baby in an out but I actually found it really easy and got to grips with it after the first attempt. It does look daunting and she said when they first opened the box it was rather daunting with all the straps etc. So don't be put off until you've assembled it and tried it a few times. I can guarantee you'll love it.
It is extra good for people who suffer from back problems as it has enhanced back support providing stability and comfort for your lower back. It has also been developed with paediatricians for proper support for baby's head, back and hips which is really important and good to know.
It is the perfect fit from newborn and adjusts to growing babies so you can get a lot of wear out of it. Not to mention the 2-way front carrying options of your baby facing inwards and outwards.
It is free from harmful substances, Öko-Tex class 1 for babies certified.
What I love about this carrier is you get a really nice bond with your baby yet you don't feel the weight of carrying them as all the weight is supported in the right places. The first time I used it I did feel the weight in my legs but thats just because I wasn't used to walking freely holding a baby. It's such a relief to know you can go on long walks and not worry about lugging the pram around, it makes 'off-roading' easy. I also kept it on once when I was meeting my mum for lunch and realised that as my niece had fallen asleep I could easily eat my lunch without disturbing her, cuddle her and both of us were happy.
There is sufficient support so the baby's head doesn't move around too much which is especially good for new borns.
I didnt' feel sweaty when I wore it on a warm day on a walk for 2 hours so thats a bonus especially if you're planning on taking the harness off after using it and your in a social place.
It is adjustable and my sister, me and her partner are all different shapes and sizes yet it takes a matter of seconds to adjust the easy to use straps to get Molly in and out and secure on my body. The only thing I found tricky were the button/clips you attach the long flap/babies back support bit to the strap over your shoulders as it can be quite a tight fit but definitely not a flaw or a reason not to buy this.
