I miss my baby wearing days, especially now that an organic version of my favorite carrier is available! Babybjörn Original Organic Baby Carrier is essential for any new green mommy or daddy, in my opinion. A worn baby is a happy baby because:
- Babies feel closely snuggled to the parent
- Babies are kept within their short range of vision, unlike riding in a stroller
- Babies can feel your heart rhythm and breath reminding them of the womb
- Babies and parents bonding is promoted through baby wearing
A babywearing parent is a happy parent because their baby fusses less, and grown-up arms are free for doing chores, shopping, etc..
Choosing a baby carrier made from organic fabric only makes sense, considering how much you will use it and how close it is to your baby’s skin. Babybjörn explains:
The new family of products enables parents to be kind to the earth for
the next generation, while keeping their little ones safe and content using BabyBjörn favorites. Organically grown cotton benefits the environment in a number of ways, such as helping to replenish and preserve soil fertility and allowing for less use of toxic pesticides and fertilizers.
BabyBjörn’s organic textiles meet the Global Organic Textile Standard
(GOTS), the most recognized international organic standard.
I could never have survived the first few months of my children’s life without Babybjörn.
Disclosure: I received a sample product in order to write this review. I was not paid by the company, and no guarantees were made as to whether a positive or negative review would be written. This is an authentic review.
Great to see an article promoting babywearing! I just had to say that there are carriers, slings and wraps out there that are much better than Baby Bjorn carriers. As I understand it; the Baby Bjorn carrier has the baby in a ‘hanging from the crotch’ position, which is not good for their hip and spine development. The way the Baby Bjorn distributes weight is also not very good for the person wearing it – it hangs all the weight off of the person’s shoulders. There is some good info here: http://www.littlepossums.co.uk/choosing.htm (I have no connection to that site, just know that is a good article!)

Claire, I have also heard that criticism for Babybjorn, but I have not seen any evidence of hip dysplasia, etc. Both of my kids seem fine, but the Babybjorn is limiting as far as when the babies grow out of it. I think the Ergo may last longer as the child ages.
I have also heard and read that the baby björn is not recommended. I read that the legs of a baby should not hang down instead the knees should be at least at the same height as the hips or that when you walk the baby´s legs should not be in your way. I used a baby wrap with my son and loved it. And those you can use for a long time since they´re not really made for a certain height or weight. But it´s still good to hear that such a popular brand like the baby björn offers a greener version now.
Just coming back to this to add links to info on BB style carriers:

The Baby Bjorn Original Baby Carrier will also adapt as your baby grows and becomes more interested in the outside world. You can have your baby facing outwards and fold down the neck rest so your little one can keep an eye on everything going on around them.
