Baby carriers sure have come a long way since Kacie was a baby. Back then a lot of the carriers I tried were either uncomfortable for Kacie, hurt my back, or generated a lot of body heat. Beacuse of this, I stopped using them and didn’t even try to put Kiana in one. Thank goodness I gave it another try with Kaila. Being able to carry her hands-free has truly been a blessing.
BabyBjorn is the first name in baby carriers. Their main goal is to “simplify everyday activities for parents and small children by developing innovative products for children up to the age of three. Their products are now used worldwide by millions of parents, and all of them have the same goal: happy, safe children.”
We recently had the opportunity to review the BabyBjorn Organic Comfort Carrier. What I liked initially about this carrier is that it’s made of organically grown cotton. This guarantees a product free from health-hazardous substances and also meets the criteria for Oeko-Tex Standard 100, Class 1, for baby products. This gives me peace of mind since Kaila is always chewing on the fabric.
Figuring out how to put it on was pretty easy. The thickly padded waist and shoulder straps were comfortable and I was able to carry Kaila around in it for hours. We both loved it! These straps are easily adjustable and can be positioned correctly as your baby grows. However, what I liked best about the BabyBjorn Comfort Carrier is the versatile ways of using it. Kaila can be worn front-facing or out-facing with various leg positions. Why is this important? All babies are different in what they prefer. These options will ensure just the right comfort position for your baby.
Aside from all these comfort benefits, I love the freedom that the Comfort Carrier brings to my life. Before using it, I would have never ventured to the grocery store with a baby. Now I can put Kaila into the carrier and still be able to push the grocery cart around with ease. And because she’s so comfortable in it, I don’t feel like I have to rush through my shopping trip. In fact, once she got hungry and I was able to feed her with a bottle with one hand and still grab things off the grocery shelves with the other. Talk about multi-tasking! I felt like SuperMom!
The only downside is that I wish there was a way to separate the piece between your shoulder blades that keep the shoulder straps secured together. It would be a lot easier to take Kaila out of the carrier if I could take the shoulder straps off first.
Other than that, we really liked using the BabyBjorn Comfort Carrier and take it everywhere we go. It’s also great to use around the house when I just need to get things done. Having her near me is another great advantage and I know I’ll miss the physical contact when she gets older. Until then, I’m keeping her close by for as long as I can.
