BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Miracle Essential for New Parents

I’ll never forget my first days of parenthood back in 2005 when we were living in New York City. Two weeks after we’d brought our baby girl home from the hospital, my husband had to go back to work. The thought of venturing out of the confines of our baby-stocked apartment on my own was slightly terrifying. That’s when it hit me. The ticket to my freedom was sitting right in the closet in a little box, and it was called the BabyBjorn.

I had seen parents all over Manhattan proudly toting their newborns around in these same Bjorn carriers. After all, isn’t wearing your baby like a badge of honor a rite of passage in parenthood? The rest is history. I was already madly in love with my sweet baby girl, but now I was falling hard for my trusty BabyBjorn carrier too!

Now, fast forward to 2012, and if you can believe it, this classic design has improved! The brand new BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Miracle has become even more comfortable with added waist straps for support, and with multiple carrying options, baby and parent will always be happy. The updated design is thanks to decades of thoughtful research and collaboration with both parents and medical experts. You can comfortably wear this carrier for extended periods of time. Safe for newborns, you won’t need to purchase any additional insert pieces. It’s simply the only baby carrier you’ll need to buy.

Since the carrier comes in neutral colors, my husband could proudly get in on the baby carrying action too. He carried each of our three children around town in a Bjorn carrier. It’s actually hard for me to believe that Baby Carrier Miracle could be better than my original version, but with the additional back support, extra soft cotton fabric and now an organic option, I’ll admit I’m a wee bit jealous my baby carrying days are over.

    Does this brand carry only one design? I was hoping I could get one for my sister wherein she could carry her baby in a swaddle-like position. Something that doesn’t require a newborn baby’s little legs to stick out and hang.

    Hi Recreate, The BabyBjorn carrier can be worn with baby facing in (towards you) or away (facing out). I found that my babies loved having their legs dangling as opposed to a swaddle style carrier. Also be mindful of the dangers of a swaddle carrier. I know that in the very infant stages you have to be sure there is enough breathing room. good luck!

    Another thing that you can get is the Boba Wrap, Recreate. wear your baby like this and he can snuggle comfortable next to you. It’s like an extension to your uterus.

  • Andrea

    I would skip this design of a baby carrier all together. The legs being lower than the bum is bad ergonomic form for an infant. The boba, beco, tula ect all have really great designs that are similarly priced, better constructed, and will outlast the usefulness of this carrier. Also the facing out isn’t ideal because they baby cannot turn away from the world when over stimulation occurs.

    I agree with Andrea. I did a LOT of research about which baby carrier to purchase, and the Bjorn fails to tilt the baby’s hips so that their weight is not hanging on their pelvis. There are many superior alternatives. I personally went for the Ergo, which we still use for our 3 year old. I am using a wrap, like the Moby Wrap, for my 3 month old. It is even more comfortable than the Ergo!

    Recreate: They do have other designs, but generally, they look the same. I guess this one is ok for newborns and they’d still be comfortable with their legs hanging.
