A small, easy-to-use baby carrier

During the early months, your baby needs lots of physical contact. Baby Carrier Original is a small carrier that you can quickly put on and take off to carry your baby for short periods of time, both at home or outdoors. If your baby falls asleep, simply unbuckle the entire baby carrier and lay your sleeping baby down. Baby Carrier Original takes up little space and can be easily packed in a diaper bag or placed under the stroller.

Features and benefits

  • Small and easy to use
    Our most basic baby carrier model with just a few adjustable buckles.
  • Designed with the littlest ones in mind
    Baby Carrier Original is perfect for newborns.
  • Sturdy, adjustable head support
    Good head support is crucial for the first five months until your baby’s muscles have developed enough to keep the head upright. Baby Carrier Original features sturdy, adjustable support for your baby’s head and neck.
  • Carry on front, facing in or facing out
    Choose whether to carry your baby inward-facing or outward-facing. You can use the outward-facing position once your baby reaches about 5 months.

We bought a wrap to carry our daughter in, which was great while she was tiny, but as she got bigger she didn't like it as much and I couldn't wear her facing out. My mom kindly bought us a Bjorn and it made a huge difference! My daughter likes to be up and facing out so she can see everything, and the Bjorn was exactly what we needed. I can get so much more done now and take more walks with her because it holds her in a position she likes and takes the strain off my back and arms. It's also VERY easy to clean (she puked all over it the first wear and it wiped right off with a wet washcloth). It being machine-washable is a plus! It's also easy to put on and get the hang of. Wraps take longer to get on and get right, but after 2 wears of the Bjorn, I was a pro. My husband probably loves it even more than me (he fights me to carry her, haha). It's definitely a worthwhile investment if you're needing a way to make your baby more portable!

I bought this from a yard sale. I needed something easy to put on by myself. I like that I can do this without assistance. My daughter is 4 1/2 mo & 14 lb and seems very content in it!
I just wish it was a little more supportive for my back. I can only wear it for about 1/2 hour. I also think her legs should be out wider for her hips.
But for on the go for shopping it's really good!

    Comments about BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Original - Black Spirit / Cotton:

    I got this as I just wanted a simple carrier that was approved for the hips. I found that this was the best way for me to be able to do "jobs" around the house again like vacuuming as bubs likes the sound and I hate dust but I couldn't work out a way before this. He falls asleep on walks in it too so actually that's the best use when I can't get him to sleep any other way ( car has opposite effect).
    I also got the cover as it's autumn here now with cold mornings and that is really good once I watched the video and worked out how to correctly fit it...

        Used daily for our commute to nursery, so much easier to use than a wrap sling, used from 8 weeks onwards. Absolutely love it!

          Comments about BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Original - Black Spirit / Cotton:

          I had a cloth carrier which baby didnt like and it didnt feel safe so I saw another parent using this carrier and it looked comfortable for mother abd baby so I shopped around and brought one. After using carrier for first time my baby was happy, so I was happy. Its nice and compact so easy to store away or hang on a coat hook, also can use inside or outside but I would wear with coat over the top. Highly recommend for easy use but practice first before putting baby in
