How it works

BabyBjorn One Air is a practical baby carrier with 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 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 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.

Safety

Safety

Baby carriers are one of the many products manufactured by BABYBJÖRN, well known brand for their priority for ensuring safety standards and creating a feeling of safety, security and comfort when carrying your child. BabyBjorn One Air Carrier raises the already high level of quality as a result of used materials and offered great support for baby’s neck and head. The material that is used for this carrier is a genuine 3D Mesh fabric which means that is a child-friendly material tested and proven to meet the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, Class I for baby products. With this fabric you do not have to worry if you baby child is prone to chewing or sucking because it is free from health-hazardous substances and allergens, and we all know how most of the babies just simply love to chew pretty much everything that is close at hand.
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 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

Ease of Use

BabyBjorn makes it possible for you to carry your loved one in four different positions. These four positions increase the longevity of the product and improve its adjustability to the child’s size making the product grow at the same time with the baby growth. Newborns can be carried in front position facing in and at this position it offers two height adjustments. Since we like to keep our newborns close to our heart and near us, the upper height position that offers head support as well would be ideal for babies from the birth to 5 months. Once the baby reaches 5 months and is able to hold the head and neck in 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 chose 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).
Comfort

Comfort

The fabric that this carrier is made of gives a feeling of softness against the gentle baby skin and the material itself allows flow of air so when you are carrying the baby even for a long time, it does not cause perspiration especially on the shoulder straps and in between the legs of the baby. This is an extremely important feature of this carrier especially knowing the fact that many of the baby carriers are made of thick material that easily warms up which can cause irritation for lots of babies.
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.
Versatility

Versatility

It is easy to transfer from one parent to another without having to make many adjustments since this product is not size specific. The carrier is equipped with zippers that can be adjusted in order to create two positions -normal and wide leg position for the baby. It offers four positions in which you can carry the baby – facing inwards, facing outwards at two height positions and later when your baby grows older you can carry the child on your back. Thus, this carrier is perfect for a long-term use and it is easy to switch between front and back positions for carrying the child without additional help.
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.
Maintenance

Maintenance

The Babybjorn One Air is made of fabrics and materials that are easy to wash and more importantly for parents always trying to save time this carrier is machine washable and dries easily. Thanks to the mesh fabric the carrier dries fast because this fabric is lightweight and airy so you can use it soon after it has been washed. The flexible and soft material preserves the quality of the carrier and lengthens the time of use. It is especially useful tool for the long summer walks because the material is specifically designed for the air to circulate and prevents babies from getting overheated. The softness of the material is well preserved over time and is kind to your baby’s skin.
Longevity

Longevity

This product extends the length of use compared to related BabyBjorn carriers. It can be used from the stage of a newborn to approximately 3 years. The minimum weight of the newborn that is best carried in an inward front position is 3.5 kg. For the babies who are between 3.5 and 4.5 kg there is an option to resize the leg openings by using the leg straps. The position of front outward is used from five month and onward. The maximum weight that is best carried on the back is 15 kg. These four carry options make the product grow together with the child. You can use this carrier to walk around and explore the world together with your child. It is easy to perform day to day duties such as shopping for food while carrying the child because your hands are free.
Price

Price

This high quality product comes with a reasonable price. You are not buying just a simple product but you are buying security and safety for your baby that grows and a comfort for both of you. This carrier as the others BabyBjorn products has been developed and designed with close cooperation and following the recommendations given by distinguished pediatricians, child psychologists and midwives that guarantees the safety of the products. The material used in this carrier is 3D mesh which means that it consists of three layers that ensure the high quality of the fabric making this product seem as a big, soft and comfy hug for your loved ones.

The Bottom Line

BabyBjorn One Air Carrier is an updated version of the BabyBjorn One. Although it seems pretty much similar to the other carriers from the brand it definitely has a few benefits or advantages over them. The top priority is given to baby’s comfort as well as the parents’ ergonomic stability by providing four different positions for carrying the baby from a newborn into the stage of toddler. The baby’s comfort is achieved by enhanced leg and hip support and the head and neck support that offers soft cushion placed behind the baby’s head. One of the best features is the possibility for adjustment of the height in two points: higher position so you can feel peaceful with your newborn sleeping or enjoying close to your heart and lower position for growing babies who are ready to see, touch, and explore the world.
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.
