One of my favorite baby gear products for TJ was his BabyBjorn carrier. I loved having TJ so close to my chest as we went walking the neighborhood. It was so much easier to get around with an infant in the carrier rather than taking our very large stroller everywhere (he was too little for the umbrella stroller). I even had him in his BabyBjorn when I went to sign my teachers contract last year. I was very sad when he outgrew his carrier. I recently was asked to review BabyBjorn’s newest carrier the Comfort Carrier. I was a little hesitant because I figured TJ was too old to use this but to my surprise BabyBjorn listened to parents everywhere and created a carrier that will old older babies!
The BabyBjorn Comfort Carrier is designed for babies and toddlers up to 2 yrs, from 6 kg/13 lbs (at least 55 cm/22 in) to 14 kg/31 lbs (12 kg/26.5 lbs facing outwards). TJ is just over 20 pounds at the moment and this carrier really came in handy in our most recent vacation to Idaho. My parents have a cabin in the mountains with unpaved roads where a stroller can not be operated very efficiently. We are also planning a vacation with my husbands family at the end of the month to Lake Michigan where there is a lot of sand (another inefficient place to use a stroller). The carrier is perfect for those walks where we need to bring TJ but don’t want to hold him for a long distance. Here is a little more about the BabyBjorn Comfort Carrier taken from their website:
The ergonomic BABYBJÖRN Comfort Carrier baby carrier provides optimum support when carrying larger and older children for longer periods of time. The waist belt and padded shoulder straps adjust the weight evenly over both hips and shoulders. The child’s leg position can be adjusted, offering extra comfort, and as with all BABYBJÖRN baby carriers, the child can be carried facing either inwards or outwards. TheBABYBJÖRN Comfort Carrier is carefully designed to ensure you can carry your child safely and close to you, and still have your hands free for other things.
BabyBjorn is also thinking about the health and safety of my child when they decided to make the Comfort Carrier 100% organically grown materials. We all know babies but things in their mouths, and knowing that the materials do not contain a bunch of chemicals eases my mind if TJ decided to chew on his carrier.
I love that BabyBjorn is constantly listening to parents and their needs and creating products that real families will actually use. The BabyBjorn Comfort Carrier is a must have that should be included on every expecting moms baby registry.
You can purchase the BabyBjorn Comfort Carrier at baby stores nationwide for $199.99 (SRP)
