Questions & answers
When can I start carrying my child facing forward in the baby carrier?
After consulting the pediatricians we work with, we recommend that you carry your child facing you in the baby carrier until he/she is around 4 months – or until the child’s neck muscles are strong enough to hold up his/her head.
How long can I carry my child in the baby carrier each time?
You can carry your child in the baby carrier for as long as he/she is content there. However, small children should not be motionless in the same position for long periods of time. That's why we recommend that you always pay close attention to your child’s needs and switch between the baby carrier and, for example, a baby sitter, stroller or crib.
Is it safe for my child to suck and chew on the baby carrier?
Yes. All the fabrics in our baby carriers are tested and certified in accordance with Oeko-Tex Standard 100, class 1 for baby products, the class that has the most rigorous requirements. The Oeko-Text label means that all the fabrics are free from health-hazardous substances and allergens.
A lot of children suck and drool on the baby carrier when they are carried facing forward. To avoid having to wash the baby carrier too often, it’s a good idea to use a BABYBJÖRN Bib for Baby Carrier. Naturally, this is also certified in accordance with Oeko-Tex Standard 100, class 1.
How do I wash BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers?
BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers can all be machine-washed, warm (40°C). Use a bleach-free detergent. Do not tumble dry.
Is it OK for my child to sleep in the baby carrier?
Yes! It’s fine for your child to sleep in a BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier. In the baby carrier, your child gets the closeness and warmth he/she needs to fall asleep feeling safe. BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers provide good support for the child’s back and neck, so you can carry your sleeping child for as long as he/she is satisfied. However, small children should not remain in the same position for extended periods. That’s why we recommend that you always pay close attention to your child’s needs and switch between the baby carrier and, for example, a baby sitter, stroller or crib.
Since the baby carrier’s front piece is completely detachable, you can easily put your sleeping child down without waking him or her.
