And the Winner Is: BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One Air

Fact: Babies like to be held. All. The. Time. Babywearing can open up a world of possibilities, allowing you to run an errand, tackle a home to-do or zip through an airport. And that’s saying nothing of having baby snuggled in close. As fellow parents, we highly value products with great functionality and growth potential—and the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One Air does both. Unlike others we tested, the Air is easy to put on and take off—no help from a partner or kind stranger needed. It offers great shoulder and back support for you and a comfortable spot for baby thanks to a wide seat and breathable mesh fabric. But best of all, this carrier grows with your child comfortably, accommodating a child up to 33 lbs and 39 inches in size. This means you get to keep that closeness with your mini-me even longer.

What We Love

• BabyBjorn takes safety seriously, partnering with medical specialists to develop carriers that safely hold your child in an upright position that ensures free airways, freedom for legs and arms to move freely and good neck and head support

• Two different height positions give you three carrying configurations for baby, facing in, facing out or carrying on your back; a sturdy waist belt and plush padded shoulders relieve pressure, making it more comfortable to wear your little one well into the toddler years

• This carrier grows with your child, carrying a tot up to 33 lbs and 39 inches in size; a wide seat gives baby a comfy perch that’s ergonomically correct for their hips

• It’s easy to put on and take off—all by yourself; the genius design lets you swivel the whole carrier to remove baby safely

• The breathable 3D mesh fabric is great for warm weather locales or if you tend to get hot while baby wearing; mesh is flexible and moves with your body and also washes well and dries quickly

Buy it: $220,
