How it works
BabyBjorn One Air is a practical baby carrier with an ergonomic but yet stylish design that provides a comfortable carrying experience both for you and your loved ones and as such has a few advantages compared to other carriers. It is designed to grow together with your baby since it is safe to use it from birth to the age of three. Developed in cooperation with pediatricians and approved by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, this carrier offers the most needed support for a newborn’s spine, legs, hips, and head.
One of the best features of this product is that parents can choose among one of the four-way back and front carrying positions that offer height adjustments to accommodate the size of a growing child. There is enhanced comfort on the parents’ side with the extra-padded shoulder adjusting straps and a solid waist belt that contributes to even distribution of the child’s weight that on its side lowers the pressure on the shoulders. Made of material that breathes and allows the air and moisture to go through, BabyBjorn One Air can be worn for long hours without the risk of getting overheated. What makes this product different from the other related BabyBjorn One carriers is that this carrier is designed to make the carrying of the child more comfortable in an environment that is hot and more humid.
The BabyBjorn One Air is for sure a popular product that has been praised by a lot of satisfied customers, so that’s why we decided to spend time reviewing its most distinguishing features and see for ourselves whether all that buzz is true.
Another feature that adds to the safety of the product is the enhanced ergonomic design that ensures much better support for the baby’s neck and head as well as the baby’s hips. Whenever parents look for a safe baby carrier one of the priority checks is whether they are safe for the hips and not surprisingly BabyBjorn pays special attention to the hip angle by keeping the position of the baby’s legs in proper “frog” position and offers proper development of the hip joints which is extremely important for a newborn. The last safety feature has been attested by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute that has declared this product for a “hip-healthy” product. The head and neck support is ensured by a high positioned soft cushion that is placed behind the head of the baby so they can easily rest their head and enjoy the carrier.
Ease of Use
Once the baby reaches 5 months and is able to hold the head and neck in a proper position, this carrier offers the second position –facing out so the baby can look at and explore the surrounding also at this time because of the increased weight of the baby it is advisable to lower the height point. When the infant is in lower height position you can choose to face him/her inward or outward. As the infant grows into a toddler this carrier offers the fourth position – to carry the toddler on your back that is more comfortable then front position because of the heavier weight.
The carrier is pretty easy to put it on your body, just like putting on a sweater, and then you just have to buckle the waist belt and adjust it by pulling the straps. One of the focal points for this carrier is that it can easily be transferred from one parent to another without having to make special arrangements but by simple adjustment of the shoulder straps and buckles to fit the size. It is pretty easy to get the baby into the carrier and get the baby out of the carrier and extremely practical because it adapts to different body shapes (yours, your husband, babysitter).
The wide sturdy waist belt offers bigger relief of the stress and pressure on the shoulders and the back making it more comfortable for the parents to carry children even to 15 kg. The comfort is increased with the wide straps for the shoulders that contribute to the even distribution of the baby weight. Compared to the other carriers BabyBjorn One Air has another feature of side buckles that is used when you want to remove the baby easily from the carrier.
The soft cushion that is used to support the head and the neck in the first days of the newborn’s carrying experience is easy to fold down when the baby gets older and you start using the front position facing outwards. The option for selection of wider maximum seat area for the baby enhances the comfort by adjusting the width of the seat depending on the baby size.
While carrying the baby parents have free hands so it is a great tool for outdoor activities such as walking in the park together with your baby but also going shopping or running errands. In addition, this carrier looks great for both women and men to wear.
The Bottom Line
This carrier also takes care of the parents’ comfort. The updated ergonomic design, consisting of padded shoulder straps and a wide waistband, helps the parent achieve the best carrying experience with stability and much relief of the pressure on shoulders and back, especially for the new mums who often experience back pain since this carrier offers support on the lower back due to the wide belt for the waist. This is especially important if you spend many hours in the day with your baby but at the same time you have to run the everyday activities and you have to carry the baby with you. If this is the case, BabyBjorn One Air is the product that will provide you a unique carrying experience filled with comfort and safety, both for you and for your child and this is why as many users say babies enjoy being in it or easily calm down and fall asleep.
