  • I like this more than the ergo but it does feel overly complicated to get a baby in and i wish it had a better option for keeping the front flap down. It covers my sons face often. Mar 31, 2021

  • Expensive for what it is. Good quality no doubt! However equally as good carriers on the market for way less. Mar 28, 2021

  • Decent carrier but a bit convoluted to use in a hurry (to pop baby into when toddler needs you). Feb 23, 2021

  • It feels secure when you can get it configured correctly. I found the instructions confusing even after watching a youtube tutorial. My baby didnt love being in it. Jan 05, 2021

    So far have used this with baby infront of me facing in and out. She's happy in it and it's comfortable on me, but it's a bit difficult to get baby in. Half the time she cries. Dec 20, 2020

  • We sure love that this converts from infant to toddler usage. Very easy to put on once you familiarize yourself with all the straps. We first had the denim, but for breathability we traded for mesh. Aug 22, 2020

  • I could not say enough good things about this. Made life so much easier. Baby didn’t like being in the stroller much, but no issues in this carrier. Handy also if you like to hike and go for walks. Aug 15, 2020

  • Definitely not worth the price. My baby was not comfortable in it when he was younger and now hates it even more, so its collecting dust in our closet. Aug 10, 2020

    Very comfortable and easy to put on, baby felt snug and secure facing in or out! I can't wait to use it on my back as well :) Jul 01, 2020

    My absolute favorite baby carrier. Easy to put on. Comfortable for both mom and baby! May 26, 2020

  • I have this. While my husband loved it I do not think it was made for a 5,2 petite woman. I found it to be to bulky the straps are as thick as school backpack straps. Mar 21, 2020

  • Love this carrier! Pros- feels secure. cons- a little tricky to put on yourself. I always have my husband help. I can manage by myself but I feel much better when I have another set of hands helping. Feb 18, 2020

    This is my husbands favorite carrier. Easy to use. Can use by yourself, don’t need multiple hands to get baby in. Comfortable to wear Feb 18, 2020

  • This is the carrier my husband uses, I prefer wraps or ring slings for the most part; but he is very happy with it. Feb 10, 2020

  • The extra panel between parent and baby is a bit much, and there are a lot of buckles! It is also much heavier/bulkier than other carriers. It's comfy and adjustable for different wearers though. Dec 07, 2019

  • I like this carrier because it makes me feel comfortable that my baby is secure. The buckles are kinda hard to put on tho but once you get the hang of it, it isn’t bad Sep 12, 2019

    We upgraded to this carrier when our little one started to outgrow the original style. Very comfortable and easy to put on, baby felt snug and secure facing in or out! Love the breathable mesh fabric Aug 21, 2019

    This was too bulky for me. I am 5'3" and 120 pounds and found it to be just too big and uncomfortable. We rarely used it which is too bad. We thought we would use it for years. Aug 11, 2019

  • My husband has a herniated disc, out of the 5 we tried, this has the best support. You don’t even need a newborn insert! Only con, if you carry them on your back, they sit low and can’t see over you. Aug 04, 2019

  • We have used this primarily now that the baby is old enough to face outwards, and it is a game changer. Being able to have our hands-free while she is happy looking out is a godsend. Aug 01, 2019

  • This is okay but I still love our mission critical carrier better Jul 21, 2019

  • This carrier was comfortable, but way too bulky for me. I wanted something I could fit easily in the diaper bag for when my son did not want to sit in his stroller while out. May 15, 2019

    Probably will use it more when my baby gets bigger but it's a bit too overwhelming for her so I using the basic Bjorn baby carrier May 08, 2019

    Baby is comfortable in it but find it strains my upper back after walking ~1 mile with my 15lb baby Mar 21, 2019

  • This carrier seems like it would be great to hold babies securely for longer duration. The materials feel high quality and it seems to be built very well. My husband absolutely loves it! Feb 14, 2019

  • I love this for my month old Aug 27, 2018

  • Finally!!!! A baby carrier that doesn't hurt my back or my shoulders!!!! I love, love, looooove it! And my baby enjoys being in it. :) Jul 19, 2018

    This worked nicely when baby was very small (under 10lbs) for short trips. There's no lower back support, so it starts to really pull on my shoulders on longer walks. Very easy to get on/off. Jul 03, 2018

    • Kelli B.
    • Highlands Ranch, Colorado

    Love this carrier! It has withstood a ton of use and still looks great. It is machine-washable and easy to take on and off. It holds baby securely and we could use it almost immediately (8 lb minimum) Jun 04, 2018

  • I barely used this, but I don’t have an actual complaint about it. It might have been more about my daughter’s personality. When I used it, it was quite comfortable and material was quite breathable May 31, 2018

  • Our only carrier! Used w/ 2 week old+. Calms fussy baby handsfree. Pro: Multiple positions, baby is secure, easy to put on/take off, easy baby in/out, breathable, very adjustable. Con: A little bulky. Mar 30, 2018

  • I love this carrier. My child sits in it very secure; whether she is facing me or outside. I love that it has back support on it as well. I would HIGHLY recommend this product. Mar 15, 2018

  • My husband loves this one -- it puts more weight on the shoulders (as opposed to the waist/hips, like the Ergo does). Taking it on/off is a breeze and my daughter loves it! Mar 02, 2018

  • Baby feels secure and can face out or face me. He love it Feb 25, 2018

  • I think my baby is either too heavy or my back is not strong enough. I can not find a carrier that’s comfortable Feb 16, 2018

    • Megan A.

    Love my Baby Bjorn carrier! I can comfortably front carry my baby and not worry about his hips. It sometimes is the only thing that keeps him happy and gives my arms a break! Jan 29, 2018

    • Molly C.
    • Plymouth, Massachusetts

    Can't say enough about this carrier! I have a bad back, and went through a few higher end carriers before finding this one! It's easy to use once you get the hang of how to put it on! Jan 29, 2018

  • We've used this since my daughter was a newborn. It's so easy to put on and adjust without assistance. Now that we can wear it facing out, she absolutely loves going out and about in her baby bjorn Jan 23, 2018

  • My husband brought this off Amazon and I have a love/hate relationship with it. It's extremely easy to use but my back does have quite a bit of discomfort after using it for awhile. Jan 20, 2018
