baby bjorn "comfort" vs baby bjorn "active" - Page 2

post #21 of 24
Great op! I know you will like your Ergo, it has gotten wonderful reviews and I know lots of people who love it.

I have tons of carriers (mei tais, wraps, slings, buckle carrier) and for wee ones I love to wrap, but for my 30 lb 20 mo old I almost always use my BabyHawk Oh Snap! which is a buckle carrier similar to the ergo.

As for the Bjorns, not a best pick. First of all, the baby's leg position should never be dangling, thighs should be parallel to the ground (much more comfy and better for hip development). Plus, how in the heck does anyone nurse in a carrier that has fabric in between mom and baby? I like my baby next to me. Extra fabric gets in the way and is way too hot.

Hope you love your carrier!

Oh, I think you will love the Ergo. I haven't used it with the infant insert, but of all the carriers I have tried, I think it is my favorite for 6+ months. I even wore my sn in it at 4 1/2 yrs old when he had a sensory meltdown at the airport. I was (understandably) sore after wearing him for 3 hours and spending 6 more on airplanes, but the fact that I *could* wear him (and I could not have carried him) is amazing to me.

we got the Ergo! He is in it right now for the first time with me- dh has worn him in it. I really like it! only thing is- how do you do up and undo the upper back strap yourself with the newborn insert in? I can't reach it!

I hope you love it!

To undo the chest clip when front carrying, I loosened up the arms a whole lot then lifted the carrier over my head. I would just keep the hest clip fastened how I liked it so I wouldn't have to try to redo it the next time. With a smaller baby doing this may be harder - at least the first couple times - so may e someone else can suggest another way to manage.
