Pros: comfortable, washable, easy to use
Cons: front carry only
I know that some people don't think the positioning of the baby when facing out in Baby Bjorns is good, but it was always very comfortable for me and seemed to be for my son-he never fussed when I was wearing him in this! It can also be used with the baby facing you if this is a concern for you. The active carrier has a much better weight distribution due to a lower back piece not found in the traditional Baby Bjorn style, and I think that contributes a lot to the comfort for both mama (or daddy) and baby. The weight range was also pretty good-8-25 lbs, which was nice since my son was always pretty big for his age! It is extremely easy to adjust this carrier for different body types and sizes and it is ridiculously easy to put on and get the baby into.
