Baby Bjorn Product Reviews:Baby Bjorn, the company, started in 1961 in Sweden and is still family owned and operated. There #1 priority has always been safety for babies in their products and to develop funtional designs that work for parents. Perhaps their best selling and most famous is the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier, a harness design which straps around the shoulder and backs of adults and lets them carry small babies hands free. The baby sits in a little pouch that is fully encased and can either face the parent or face outwards and see the world. As the proud parent of little kids, I must say this invention is a great piece of baby equipment. You can take walks, clean around the house, or just hang out and the baby will be happy because they are essentially "attached" to mom or dad. Parent reviewers say they "can't live without it" and that it has become a part of their daily routine to wear the Baby Bjorn all the time. The design helps keep added stress off your back and owners say the balanced weighting keeps them from having backaches or sore shoulders. The straps are all adjustable so you can quickly change from "Dads" settings back to "moms" in a matter of seconds.
Baby Bjorn currently offers 3 varieties to the baby carriers, the Baby Bjorn Carrier Original which sells for $50-$75, the new Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier Air ($80) - keeps your baby cool on hot days with a 3D mesh, and the Baby Carrier Active ($90-$100) - great for parents on the move and who are continually active, also allows breastfeeding mothers to feed their babies without removing them. We rarely see so many positive reviews on any baby product, but experts and parents alike rate the Baby Bjorn carriers at the top of the list in terms of a "must have" baby accessory. They help eliminate the hassle of strollers and trying to wind your way through tight spots. Just slip on the Baby Bjorn and your child will be happy. The Baby Carrier Active and the other models are designed for both indoor and outdoor use and for babies from one week old (8 lbs) to 26 pounds. There is a BabyBjorn Cover for Baby Carrier ($40) - the cover keeps the baby warm and dry and is made of breathable fleece fabric that is water and wind resistant. With the gigantic success of the Baby Bjorn carriers, the company has branched off into other baby products including the BabyBjorn Babysitter 1-2-3 ($85) - a bouncy chair design that keeps your child happy with a soothing, rocking movement. Designed for babies 0-24 months (up to 29lbs) and comes with a restraint system to keep your child safe from getting out. As we mentioned before, all the reviews we read up on the Baby Bjorn products were pointedly positive with zero complaints. After owning a few of their products for our kids, I would highly recommend Baby Bjorn baby equipment to any new parent. They have even setup a Baby Bjorn store with all the most popular items listed with parent reviews to match. You can quickly browse the top selling products and read owner feedback to make the most informed buying decision.
