And the Winner Is: BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One

As a parent, your hands are always full and you’re constantly navigating new terrain—and we mean that both figuratively and quite literally. For agility and hands-free freedom, not to mention the added bond of snuggling baby close, nothing beats a baby carrier. You want one that’s safe and comfortable for you and your child and can offer multiple babywearing options as your little one grows. We love the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One for its versatility, longevity and ergonomic support. It’s super-chic design and color choices also don’t hurt.

What We Love

  • Face baby toward you (in one of two height positions), out toward the world or carry them on your back—the 4-position carrier lets you take your pick
  • You can wear baby from day one, thanks to the built-in newborn insert (from 8 pounds), up to age 3
  • Ergonomically designed to provide the correct support for baby’s hips, and is deemed hip-safe by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute
  • BabyBjorn considered parents’ comfort too, including thick padded shoulder straps and sturdy waist belt; we also love that you can adjust the straps by yourself without having to reach behind your back
