Can you believe miss Hattie is 4.5 months old already? She is the most gorgeous smiley girl who would love to be attached to mummy 24 hours a day if she could, yay for sweet baby cuddles whenever I want! Most of the time I am more than happy to oblige but I have to admit it does get a little hot and sweaty in this warm South Australian summer weather. Thanks to BabyBjörn I can treasure our close bond and enjoy a refreshing breeze at the same time, happy faces all around:
The Baby Carrier One Air (RRP $249.95) combines all the award-winning features of the famous Baby Carrier One with a super soft and airy mesh fabric that allows for much needed airflow, is quick drying and keeps parent and child cool and comfortable.
The fantastic 4-in-1 design offers parents the freedom to carry their child as they wish: higher for newborns, lower for older babies, inward-facing, outward-facing, front or back carrying position; the Baby Carrier One is all about versatility. As your baby grows you can change the carrying position to suit your and your child’s needs and you can enjoy carrying your child all the way up to 3 years old (15kg) making it a great investment for young families.
I am not the only one who likes baby wearing, hip daddy does too so I love that the shoulder straps and waistband can be adjusted in size in a matter of seconds. The waistband is nice and firm and the shoulder straps are padded for extra comfort, after having had 5 babies my back is not as strong as it used to be so I really appreciate how the weight is distributed evenly and keeping good posture is very easy.
At BabyBjörn they understand that we all want the best for our children which is why this carrier is developed in close collaboration with leading paediatricians. The International Hip Dysplasia Institute has given the Baby Carrier One Air the thumbs up as a ‘hip-healthy’ carrier with an ergonomic wide-leg carrying position and a generous 32 cm seat area.
Aside from being safe for your child’s hips and development the Baby Carrier One Air is also safe to chew or suck on, something our little Harriet loves to do when she is all snuggled up for a walk. All fabrics used in this carrier are gentle against your child’s skin and completely free from health-hazardous substances and allergens, that’s one less worry on my mind.
Another great feature of the BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One is that it is suitable directly from birth (min. weight 3.5kg), there is no need to purchase a separate infant insert. This not only saves you money but hassle too and you can easily change between passengers of different ages/weights. The clever ‘zipped’ seat can be adjusted to suit newborns up to 62cm (higher newborn position) or older babies (lower baby position), at 60cm Hattie is about to go into the lower position. Just do up the correct zip and you’ll always have the perfect seat for your little traveller, easy as pie.
There are lots of different baby carriers around and some are trickier than others but the BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One is definitely easy to use. The main ‘frame’ simply slides on over your head like a sweater, I find this feels really safe, sturdy and reliable. Next you do up the waist band behind you and pull it tight. All that is left is to place your baby on the ‘seat’ and fold the front panel towards you which you then secure with 4 strong safety buckles. Click and go!
The BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One Air is currently available in stylish Silver Mesh or Black Mesh.
