Babybjorn baby carrier original spirit black diamond reviews
Professional reviewers say the BabyBjorn Original is a good basic baby carrier that’s both safe and easy to use. It gets high marks in user reviews as well, with good feedback on its construction quality and durability. Parents say the straps are easy to adjust, although some complain that back and neck strain can be an issue. If ergonomics is your primary concern and you don’t mind spending significantly more, the Ergo Baby Carrier(*Est. $105) edges out the BabyBjorn in some professional reviews because of its reputation for good weight distribution. The Ergo Baby Carrier also has a weight limit of 40 pounds — almost twice the BabyBjorn Original’s 25-pound limit. However, your baby can’t ride facing forward in the Ergo Baby Carrier, which some see as a drawback. The BabyBjorn Original baby carrier gets extensive coverage in both expert- and owner-written reviews. “Baby Bargains,” a popular baby gear buyer’s guide, discusses the BabyBjorn in terms of ease of use, adjustability, features, comfort and value. ToysRUs.com, with over 560 entries, is the best source of user reviews of the BabyBjorn Original. Diapers.com, Amazon.com and Target.com also have more than 750 posts among them. A review at How Do You Do It?, a blog run by mothers of multiples, includes a discussion of the BabyBjorn.
