BabyBjorn Carrier Front Facing

 

If you're looking for a front-facing baby carrier option, the BabyBjörn Carrier is a great choice. It's comfortable and easy to use, and your baby will love being able to see all the action around them. Plus, it's perfect for newborns all the way up to toddlers. So here I'll look at the how, when and why of carrying your baby in the forward facing position with a BabyBjorn baby carrier.

 

How to Use a BabyBjörn Carrier in the Front Facing Position

Your newborn baby needs a lot of closeness, and baby carriers are a great way to facilitate this closeness. At this age, it’s best to carry in the facing-in position to strengthen the bond between you; the warmth of your breath and the sound of your heartbeat are reassuring to your baby.

At about the age of five months when your baby’s neck muscles are stronger, you can start carrying in the facing-out position in the BabyBjörn Carrier — curious babies usually enjoy seeing what’s happening around them. When your baby is one year old, you can start carrying them on your back, which often feels more comfortable as your child grows heavier.

We’ll take a look here at three different BabyBjörn Carriers:

  • BabyBjörn One
  • BabyBjörn Mini
  • BabyBjörn Harmony

 

At about the age of five months when your baby’s neck muscles are stronger, you can start carrying in the facing-out position in the BabyBjörn carrier — curious babies usually enjoy seeing what’s happening around them.
