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 our urban mama, Megan – she recently shared her tips for living in NYC with two small kids – and having a way to wear a baby was on her list! Megan’s using the BabyBjorn Carrier One Air from their new Be You Collection – read on to learn more about the One Air and enter below to win one, too! You can find mama Megan over on her Instagram, @GirlGoneChildinNYC.
BabyBjorn’s new Be You collection of carriers is an ode to being the parent that you are and not fitting into any one box! As they say, “The Be You collection is our shout-out to you as a parent. We want you and your child to feel free to live as unique individuals and make your own choices in life.” We love that! The Be You collection features BabyBjorn’s popular Baby Carrier One and One Air in cotton and mesh in several stunning new colors – stay tuned for more colors and styles later this week!
The BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One Air features 4 (!!) different ergonomic positions for your little one. There is a special facing-in carrying position for newborns to allow you to carry your baby high up on your chest and close to your heart. This provides you with eye contact and all-important closeness, while allowing you to supervise your baby’s breathing. After about four months, it’s time to start using the lower height position. For added comfort, you can adjust the width of the leg openings in the facing-in position. From five months onwards, you can fold the head support down and carry your baby in a front-facing position, or switch between the facing-in and front-facing position. At this age, your baby’s neck, hips and spine are sufficiently developed for him or her to be carried in this position. Most babies delight in discovering the world while safely resting against mom or dad’s chest. With your toddler facing in, swivel the whole baby carrier from front to back. The shoulder straps will remain on your body like a closed loop, ensuring that your toddler is secure during the process. Simple, safe and comfortable – all in one easy movement.
Did you know BabyBjorn developed this carrier in close collaboration with pediatricians? It’s true. BabyBjorn works with leading pediatricians, midwives and child psychologists. Their medical expertise is extremely important to BabyBjorn and they never launch a product without their approval! This carrier is acknowledged as a a hip-healthy baby carrier by International Hip Dysplasia Institute. Plus, all fabrics used in this product are gentle against your baby’s skin and safe to chew or suck on. They have been tested and approved in accordance with Oeko-Tex ® Standard 100 Class I. This means that the textiles are free from health-hazardous substances and allergens.
So, why does Megan love the Carrier One Air from the Be You collection for HER? Megan said, “This carrier is super soft and great for my not so little baby. Chasing my kids around NYC and running up and down subway steps all day makes this carrier a lot more convenient than a stroller.” The BabyBjorn Carrier One Air is ideal for urban mamas, moms of multiple kids, and especially travel – it’s super comfortable and lightweight so you won’t get too hot carrying a little one around all day.
