Did you know that October 2nd – 8th is International Babywearing Week? This week we teamed up with BabyBjorn to highlight some of their most popular baby carriers and see how real moms from around the country use their BabyBjorn carriers. Today’s real mama is one of our ‘momtographers,’ Alex Mooney from Pics and Paws Photography. She recently shared her tips for photographing children, and today she’s sharing how she uses the BabyBjorn Carrier One Outdoors carrier to babywear while shooting photos! Fun fact: her four year old, Patrick, took most of these photos of her! Read on to learn more about the Carrier One Outdoor and enter below for a chance to win one. You can find Alex on her Instagram, @PicsandPawsPhotography.
The BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One Outdoors is ideal for parents who love to get out into the world and adventure with their little ones. Baby Carrier One Outdoors is made from water-repellent and moisture-wicking materials, and it has pockets and loops for instant access to a cell phone, water bottle or cuddly toy. Baby Carrier One Outdoors is designed for ergonomic babywearing, with a sturdy waist belt and padded shoulder straps for optimal carrying comfort for newborns and children up to approx. the age of three. You can easily switch between several front and back carrying options. It’s also easy to adjust, so several adults can take turns at babywearing. Alex, who shoots photography with her husband as a team, found that this is an awesome carrier for going out and shooting outdoors because it is incredibly easy to switch baby Annie back and forth between mom and dad.
Why is the BabyBjorn Carrier One Outdoors the perfect carrier for getting out and about with your little one?
- Functional and Practical:
The water- and dirt-resistant outer material is breathable and easy to wipe clean, so you can use the baby carrier in any weather. The baby carrier dries quickly after rain or washing. The inside is made from a super-soft mesh fabric that’s kind to your child’s delicate skin. The baby carrier has pockets and loops for a cell phone, a water bottle and other useful items.
- 4 front and back carrying positions
Choose whether you want to carry your child facing in, facing out or on your back. And, it features an ergonomic leg position with fully adjustable seat width ensures a comfortable and ergonomically correct position for your child’s hips. Going on a long hike? No worry, the luxuriously thick padding in the shoulder straps gives you superior carrying comfort, and the wide, sturdy waist belt gives you excellent pressure relief and ensures good carrying ergonomics.
- Built-in infant insert
Baby Carrier One Outdoors has two height positions. Use the upper position for newborns (at least 8lbs/3.5 kg) so your baby is carried in the proper position close to your face. Your baby should be close enough for you to kiss the top of their head.
- Carry your toddler on your back
As your child reaches the toddler stage, it will be more comfortable for you to carry them on your back. With your child in the baby carrier facing inwards, you can easily swivel the baby carrier from front to back. It’s comfortable and you can do it on your own. The design of the baby carrier ensures that your child sits safely and securely while being moved onto your back.
- Hip-friendly baby carrier
The International Hip Dysplasia Institute has tested Baby Carrier One Outdoors and acknowledges it to be “hip-healthy”. This means that the baby carrier provides the correct support to your child’s hips and encourages good hip joint development, which is especially important in your child’s first months.
- Child-friendly material
All BabyBjorn baby carriers are free from harmful substances and approved in accordance with Oeko-Tex Standard 100, Class 1 for baby products.
The BabyBjorn Carrier One Outdoors is your ultimate companion for hiking, traveling, or even pursing your own hobbies, like photography! Be You in the BabyBjorn Carrier One Outdoors carrier and adventure away! Why does Alex like the BabyBjorn Carrier One Outdoors for HER? She says, “I absolutely love how versatile this carrier is. Being a photographer is a large part of who I am, and having a carrier that allows me to be this along with a mom who likes to keep her kiddos close is a huge plus. I can snap and not have to worry about my daughter crawling off somewhere or getting into something that she shouldn’t. Plus, this carrier is ridiculously comfortable! I can do anything with it, including a photo shoot!”
