We’ve had this since my son was about 4 months old, we’ve both absolutely loved it. It’s easy to put on and get baby in and is very secure. Baby can either snuggle into you or face outwards (when old enough with good enough head support). My little boy always seemed really comfy in it. He’s almost 11 months and we’ve just stopped using it because it was too tight for him. The straps easily adjust so that other people can easily use it, really good product.
Luna didn’t like her pushchair or Moses basket when she was a newborn so I resorted to use a carrier so I could get bits done around the house!
It saved me so much to regain some freedom with my hands :)
Definitely recommend as it’s also easy to put on vs the wrap carriers which I wasn’t confident with.
I use this almost everyday for walks with my little one. I find it very secure and comfortable and my baby lives it too. great facing forwards option for walks when they are 4 months up and amazing nap option when facing towards me
Less comfortable when baby starts to grow, expensive

This product has been on the market for ages and for several good reasons. It's versatile, suitable to most body shapes (mum and babies' alike), comfortable and easy to use. I had it for my eldest and greatly missed for my second. I was kindly given a carrier that only allows rear-facing, which is not always ideal. The BabyBjorn allows both positions. It is also quick to wear and take off and gives the baby much more freedom of movement than other competitors. The only weaknesses are, in my opinion, the lesser support once your little one gets heavier and the price. A fave, still.
I was given this carrier to use by a friend. I thought it looked very stylish and was excited to try it out as thought it would make walks so much easier. The carrier straps were well padded and it seemed like it would be comfortable.
I put it on and could not get it to sit in the right position, after much messing around I eventually managed to alter it however as I am short, baby seemed to sit really low down and looked very uncomfortable. It didn’t feel safe at all. Other friends have used it and raved about it however anyone short I have spoken to has experienced the same problems.
Initially i was given a baby carrier which was another brand and I thought the straps were too fiddly so I was delighted when I found this one to be really easy to put on and get baby into. The straps were easily adjusted to tighten and loosen. It’s avtuallt comfortable to wear also, I have used this for many long country walks and even took on some hillwalking. My little on loves to be forward facing and seeing everything as we are walking. It’s also one of those products you can store away and if you won’t get the use out of it again I am sure someone else would. Also machine washable which is ideal.
Comfortable mid price range carrier. Felt a lot more comfortable than others in same price range. Have used from a few weeks old to 6 months so far and still plenty of growing room. My daughter is 6 months old and is 19 15lb and she's fine in it.
I love this carrier it is stable and makes you feel secure while having your little one in it. Lovely an ideal if you are just popping out or fancy a walk, so easy to get baby in and out off without any fuss. Only thing is it gets a bit harder with when they get a bit older, apart from that I would recommend to a friend
Bought this as my LO didn't get along with the pram for a little while. It was really uncomfortable to wear and really hurt my back. My baby didnt look too comfortable in it either. Will definately purchase a different one for my second.
I love the babybjorn carrier, its so quick and easy to put on and doesn't put too much strain on my back. Love how u can wear baby facing you when tiny, then turn them round as they get older, my son loves going on his. I think it's great you can get a fleece cover to go over the carrier for colder months but wish it wasn't so pricey, that's the only issue I have with it. Fantastic carrier.
My sister in law gave me this for my baby. I found it really useful for around the house if he was abit unsettled and I needed to do stuff, I would put him in this and most of the time he would sleep. I found it hurt my back when he was much bigger and he was forward facing.
Loved this when my baby was small. She’s now 15months and I’ve switched to a different carrier.
Very easy and quick to wear and put baby in or take baby out.
Easy to adjust size too and the fact baby can face either way as they grow is fab. My baby slept in this too very comfortably. I had a coat that fitted round me and baby in the babybjorn so even in rain she was dry and warm n snug.
Recommend without hesitation.
You can use this from a very early age to comfort your baby when they are having a bad day or if you just want to feel close to them. I found it very secure and easy to use with the only problem being that if you use it for more than one person when adjusting to straps back if you get it wrong it can be rather uncomfortable but when it’s used correctly it’s feel good and very secure.
Used this one many times with my first child when travelling abroad. Its an absolute life safer for planes when need to get in and out and on top of that you have your luggage. I kept it and definitely going to use for my second one.
It is very easy to use and can be used both ways: baby facing parent when smaller and facing outside when getting bigger once able to hold its head.
I found it quite uncomfortable and not easy to adjust in order to feel comfortable - puts some pressure on the back. Would recommend any parent buying a baby carrier to actually test various with their own baby - we made the mistake to buy it when i was still pregnant.
So I have used a number ignored carriers and slings, but nothing’s compates to this when it comes to

Very easy to use, but I felt my babies were not well supported in this carrier. They never settled and often cried. The carrier itself gives me the most ridiculous back pain ever. I have used many carriers, wraps and slings, so I know my carriers. This would have to be my least favourite of any I have tried.
like how is quite plain and goes with any outfit I wear
didn't find very supportive when baby couldn't hold her head very well
Value for money
Love the style and plain design of the babybjorn as I like things to coordinate and have bought all my baby products -pram etc in plain black!
Now that my baby can hold her head well she loves this product and loves looking around when I am out and about!
However when she was younger and was forward facing i found that if she fell asleep her face would push forward and be smothered in my chest! I felt like I was leaning forward in a funny position to get her to lean back!
However overall would buy again for next baby!
Comfortable, easy to use, good weight distribution.
No waist band, like the next model, so only suitable for the first year.

Great carrier which is super easy to use and adjust to your baby's growing weight and size. I use mine in the house as well as out and about.
It was also essential when flying as we used it to carry our baby from the plane to baggage reclaim as pushchairs can often take a while to come through.
Have used this baby carrier with both my daughter and niece, it’s been perfect for both of them. I’ve always felt they were safe, secure and supported. The only downside is there isn’t much support for whoever is wearing it so it can be quite uncomfortable if you’ve got a bigger baby in it.
Faces both ways, easy for beginners to get to grips with
Baby’s legs ‘dangle’ somewhat compared to other carriers making me think it isn’t the best for baby
Value for money
A great carrier to get you started with baby wearing as it’s the original ‘classic’ baby carrier that is available in most stores and many parents share their experiences of it. My partner personally prefers this carrier as it’s easier to adjust and faces both ways so you can gauge what sort of mood your baby is in and position them accordingly.
Personally I use the carrier for small trips to the shops but for longer walks I prefer a carrier which is more supportive of baby’s back and legs, as they seem to ‘dangle’ using this carrier, as opposed to being wrapped more against the wearer’s body.
It’s reasonably prices so a good starting point to see if babywearing is right for you! I’ve tried cheaper carriers and they’re not as supportive as this so I’d recommend it to new parents as a traditional starting place.
I love this baby carrier start using it with my daughter from early stage. She loves sleeping in it. The only downfall is that's too small so you can't really use it for too long and it's not that supportive for your back but you can use it if you go quickly to the shop or around the corner but I wouldn't recommend it using it for too long.
1. Was the only sling that fit my little boy and I could adjust the straps for his head to be secure
Uncomfortable when baby gets bigger.. No back support
Value for money
Was perfect until my baby got to 6months (he was a very small baby) once he got bigger I could only have him in it for short periods as there is no back support.
Also when he got bigger if he was wearing a snow suit I would struggle to get him in.
One of the most uncomfortable carriers I have ever tried!
Only good for very short periods of time.
The straps dig into my back and caused back ache after only 30mins of walking.
Not ergonomic and doesn't keep babies hips and legs in the correct position!
Your baby required a lot of physical contact during the first months.
The Babybjorn Baby Carrier Original is a compact carrier that you can quickly put on and remove to carry your baby for short periods of time, at home or outdoors. If your baby falls asleep, it’s easy and fast to unbuckle the entire baby carrier and lay your baby down. The Baby Carrier Original takes up very little space and can be easily packed in a changing bag or kept beneath the pram.
