I have a BabyBjorn carrier. I never see anyone commenting regarding the BabyBjorn. Is the use of this product considered baby wearing??

They just don't look very comfortable, compared to a baby curled up in fetal position with his body pressed against mama's, and his head on her heart!
But yes, it is babywearing and I am at least grateful that the BBs are so popular these days. There also do seem to be some babies who prefer them over slings.
