We received a complimentary item to facilitate this BABYBJÖRN Carrier We review. All opinions are our own.
When you’ve got young kids a simple trip out of the house can be quite a circus. With the addition of our youngest in May, my family now consists of three children under the age of 5. Getting us out of the house on my own isn’t impossible it just requires a little more planning. Wearing the baby gives me an advantage because I’m then hands free (no hauling a heavy infant carseat) and the baby is happier when being snuggled close to me.
BABYBJÖRN Carrier We Review: Carry Your Baby Comfortably!
The Baby Carrier We is the newest baby carrier by BABYBJÖRN. BABYBJÖRN is a Swedish family-owned business that started in 1961 by Björn Jakobson. The company’s mission is to make day-to-day life easier for parents through innovative products that are both safe and high quality. BABYBJÖRN developed its first child carrier in 1973 after new research findings showed the importance of eye contact and physical closeness between parents in the first six months of a child’s life.
The Baby Carrier We has a carrying capacity from 8 pounds to 33 pounds. This allows parents to carry their children from birth to about 3 years in one of three inward or back carrying positions. It has a wide padded waist belt as well as padded shoulder straps. The Baby Carrier We is constructed from non-toxic cotton fabric and is also machine washable.
This carrier is sleek and simple to use. First, the shoulder straps are lowered over my head as if I’m putting on a shirt. I can easily adjust the back yoke by moving the strap vertically and pulling sideways. Unlike other carriers, this is much easier than trying to attach another buckle on my back while trying to hold the baby to my chest.
On my first attempt with the Baby Carrier We, I was able to get baby Liam in safely without any additional hands. The front buckle and head support locked in place with a clear “click” and I pulled the shoulder straps at each side for a snug fit. The Baby Carrier We was very comfortable to wear and I felt like it was very sturdy as well. In addition to my own comfort, baby Liam’s bottom and legs appeared to be supported with a wide seat. His neck and back were also held close to me and didn’t seem to flop around at all. When I was finished with the carrier I was able to roll it up small enough to fit in my diaper bag.
I did notice that Liam’s face was right about where the shoulder straps meet the front of the carrier. I wondered if that would bother him, but instead he sucked on the straps and appeared to be pretty content. BABYBJÖRN must have already thought of this as I saw on their website that teething pads will be available to purchase soon for the Baby Carrier We. This is also where it’s great to have a carrier made from non-toxic and washable materials!
The Baby Carrier We’s sleek black design has even gotten my husband’s attention. A couple of times now he’s volunteered to carry Liam when we go out and easily adjusts the carrier to his own fit. This is not only adorable to see, but also gives mom a little break when dad can share the load.
I currently carry Liam in just one of three positions that this carrier offers. There is a zipper inside the seat that will open thus allowing more room for babies and toddlers from about 4 months to 36 months. The third position that this carrier provides is a back carry that allows parents to carry their children on their back at about a year all the way to 3 years or 33 pounds. These three positions allow parents to use the Baby Carrier We for three years. As a parent I think this is a huge benefit. Products that will grow with my children are not just convenient but also economical.
