Features and benefits
Perfect first baby carrier for a newborn
Baby Carrier Mini is a small and easy-to-use baby carrier that is best suited to newborns and their great need for closeness. You can carry your baby high on your chest, so they always feel your heartbeat.
Small and easy to use
Baby Carrier Mini is very easy to use, with just a few adjustable buckles. This means you can quickly put it on, day or night, to comfort or lull your newborn to sleep. You can easily unfasten the entire front section of the baby carrier to lift out your sleeping newborn. The size and head support are fully adjustable, which means you can easily adapt Baby Carrier Mini as your newborn grows.
Soft and flexible
The super-soft fabrics in Baby Carrier Mini create a cozy space for your newborn and are comfy against their delicate skin. The baby carrier gently hugs your newborn’s back, legs and hips and gives good sitting support in a comfy, ergonomic position. You can check your newborn’s position and the natural C-curve of their back with your hands through the fabric.
Unique baby carrier fabrics
The fabrics we use have been developed specifically for our baby carriers and are designed to suit newborns. Our mesh and jersey baby carriers are made from 3D fabrics that have three layers – an inner layer, a middle layer and an outer layer. Instead of padding that might make the baby carrier too warm, the middle layer consists of a fine, single-fiber thread. This gives the baby carrier the stability of padding while ensuring very good air flow, so the carrier stays airy and cool when you’re babywearing.
Our newest and softest material is as snuggly as your comfiest t-shirt. The smooth, flexible fabric gently hugs your newborn when you’re babywearing.
Cool and airy mesh fabric, with an incredibly soft backing next to your newborn’s skin. The mesh fabric ensures good air flow and dries quickly after washing.
BCI-certified cotton that is stretchy in the seat area and satin-woven to make it super-soft and comfy. A thin middle layer keeps the baby carrier small, compact and flexible.
Takes up very little space
Baby Carrier Mini is small, which makes it easy to stuff into your diaper bag or under the stroller when you’re not using it.
Sturdy, adjustable head support
Good head support is very important both for a newborn and during the first five months until your baby can hold its head up unaided. Baby Carrier Mini has sturdy, adjustable support for both the head and neck.
Keep your hands free
When carrying your newborn in a baby carrier, your hands are free for other things. Perfect for when your newborn baby needs a lot of closeness.
Carry on your front either facing in or facing out
Once your baby has grown a little, you can choose whether to use the facing-in or facing-out position. Your baby should be at least five months old before you use the facing-out position.
New needs as your baby grows
Carrying comfort becomes increasingly important for you as your baby grows. Do you want to be able to carry your growing baby longer or on your back?

What’s the difference between Baby Carrier Original and Baby Carrier Mini?
- Wider seat area. The seat area of Baby Carrier Mini is 4 in/10 cm wider at its widest part than the seat area of Baby Carrier Original. This means that Baby Carrier Mini gives better support to a newborn’s legs and hips in the facing-in position.
- New unique baby carrier materials. Baby Carrier Mini comes in three incredibly soft materials: Cotton, 3D Mesh and our new 3D Jersey. Our mesh and jersey materials are super-soft, ensure a good airflow, and are cool and comfy when you’re babywearing. Our baby carrier in satin-woven cotton is cooler, lighter and slightly more flexible around the seat area than earlier versions of our cotton baby carriers.
