For many moms, the words “carrier” and “BabyBjorn” go hand in hand—this classic has been on the market for years and is one of the most well-known, popular carriers out there.
And with good reason: BabyBjorn carriers are comfortable, long lasting, well-made and affordable. I bought my first one five years ago, and only traded it in for the second baby because I was ready for a different color—the carrier itself held up very well and probably could have easily been used for another baby or two. And now, on top of being an all-around great carrier, there’s an organic BabyBjorn option available as well—perfect for an eco-mama like myself!
I tried out the Original carrier in their new organic fabric (it’s also available in their popular Active style). It is made from organically grown cotton and complies with GOTS standards; it’s also Oeko-Tex certified, Standard 100, Class 1. (Not sure what all that means? I wasn’t either, but in a nutshell, it guarantees that your carrier is free from any hazardous substances. To read more about it, visit the BabyBjorn site. Or click here to read about GOTS and here for Oeko-Tex.)
Like all BabyBjorn carriers, this one was easy to use and comfy for both my babe and me. You can position your baby either forward or outward facing, and the head support can be folded down once your baby is looking out, so he can get a glimpse at what’s going on. I love that you can throw the BabyBjorn in the washing machine, since spit-up is a given on anything that holds a baby (particularly my little spewer). I honestly have nothing negative to say about this carrier—it meets my needs and looks good while doing so, so that’s all I can ask! (Well, except that it also be earth-friendly, which it is!)
Right now you can buy a BabyBjorn Organic Original carrier at amazon.com, and you can also use their store locator to track down a brick-and-mortar location near you. It will be money well spent!
