Luckily, we discovered baby-wearing early on. Not only is baby-wearing convenient, it also has proven benefits for both the parent and the child. Babies are comforted and happy while all snuggled up, and Mommy can actually do the dishes. Not only that, but babies who feel safe and secure from birth tend to be happier, healthier and very well adjusted.
I have tried several different baby carriers, from slings to wraps to soft-structured carriers. Some I adore, some, not so much. The sling and wrap carriers are probably my least favorite because I just never felt confident that my babies were completely secure. I always worried that they would come tumbling out somehow. (That wouldn't be good!)
The BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One is very versatile. It is designed to accommodate babies from 8lbs/21" to 33lbs/39". This equates to newborns to roughly 3 years of age. There is a newborn setting and a baby/toddler setting, so no newborn inserts are required. It's literally all-in-one!
The Baby Carrier One can be worn in a few different ways. Baby can be worn on your chest facing inward or outward. (The minimum age for the outward facing position is 5 months and the maximum weight for this position is 26lbs.) You can also wear older babies on your back. Personally, I am not a fan of baby facing outward, and my kids don't like it, either. I know a lot of parents love this, so I just wanted to point out that it is a possibility with this carrier. Better yet? There is a leg zipper that allows baby to maintain a natural leg position, whether they're newborns or toddlers.
The BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One offers a good amount of padding in the body and the straps, which makes it more comfortable for both the parent and the child. There is also a belt that clips around the parent's waist to help evenly distribute baby's weight. This is a very good feature since it helps prevent back and shoulder pain.
We went to the park yesterday, and sure enough, Xander got all tuckered out before Sophie was done playing. He prefers Daddy to wear him, so Dan slipped on the Baby Carrier One and I helped put Xander inside. He hung out on Daddy's back while he pushed Sophie on the swings.
