When it comes to structured carriers, it doesn’t get much easier than the BabyBjorn Original Carrier. Put your arms through the straps - in the same way you’d slip on on a hoodie - and two snaps later, your wee one is secured and ready to go with no assistance. If your baby falls asleep, it’s just as simple to slide him out and into the crib for a longer nap. The front-facing position lets older babies see the world, but isn’t recommended until five months old.

This is a great carrier for shorter stints, but can really make your shoulders and neck ache over time. There’s no waistband to help distribute the baby’s weight and the shoulder straps aren’t padded. (The BabyBjorn Miracle Baby Carrier offers better support for longer periods of babywearing.) Note: This carrier works for babies up to six months old, but once your bundle gets bigger you’ll have to purchase another carrier.

It does its job exactly! We've used it since she was a newborn, and now she's a 15 pound 9 month old and it is still working out nicely! There's lots of different options for how to carry the baby with this product. Safe/easy to use/and I can put her in by myself which took some practice but is super easy!

It's very easy to put on, and baby loves it especially outward facing. I use it interchangeably with the Ergo Baby 360 (not as easy to put on but very comfortable.)

This carrier has very little back support. Once my baby was more than a few months old, it became extremely uncomfortable to carry her in this. Unfortunately, I had to buy a different one. The upside is that I now have the LILLEbaby, which is SO much more comfortable!

It's so simple to use and light. I absolutely love this carrier.

We started using the Baby Bjorn at about 3-4 months. I loved it early on because it was sturdy and my son liked his legs dangling. At about eight months though my son got too heavy for the carrier as it hurt my back to carry him in it. My son especially loved the carrier when he was forward facing.

This was fine for the very early infant stage (although my baby was born in the winter and I VERY rarely went out), but as soon as she gained any weight, the weight distribution on the shoulders was just too much. I upgraded to a Lillebaby (or would have done Ergo) where weight is more on the hips for long-term wearing.

I have learned that narrow-based carriers such as this one are not good for physical development. Wide-based carriers are preferable. I feel like this was a waste of money and I wound up buying another carrier after baby was born.

This product is OK. A little difficult to strap baby in by yourself. My husband needs help every time. I'll try something different for baby #2.

It is so easy to put on and take off! After using a fabric wrap, I really appreciate the ease of this one. It adjusts quickly which is great because my husband and I are very different sizes and we both wear our daughter regularly.
