BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One

Babybjorn's first all-in-one carrier, the Babybjorn One, is available right now at Belly Beyond!


We got to see the live NZ launch last week and totally understand the big excitment around this carrier as it's the first Babybjorn capable of carrying a child from newborn right up to 3 years.

The Babybjorn One has four carrying options: three front carry positions and one back carry position.  It's very easy to swap from front to back by yourself, the easiest of any carrier we've ever tried in fact.


Positions

Optimal newborn position. Carry your newborn high up on your chest, close to your heart. 

Inward-facing comfort. Ergonomically designed for both you and your growing baby. 

Outward-facing option. Explore the world together when your child is ready. Min. 5 months.

Easy back carrying. Place your toddler on your back by yourself in one safe motion. Min. 12 months.

 

The Babybjorn One Carrier is $299, including delivery NZ wide. 


Check out the full instructional video to see just how cool the Babybjorn Baby Carrier ONE is.

Top 10 reasons for Babywearing

Written by Lou on October 9th, 2012.      0 comments

The practice of Babywearing may be as old as human kind but it fits in so well with a busy modern lifestyle. Babywearing is beneficial for baby, it’s good for parents (studies show it lowers the risk of PND) and it’s becoming a way of life for an increasing number of Kiwi families.
 
The term Babywearing is simply the practice of carrying or wearing your baby in a carrier and more and more parents are cottoning on to how much easier life is - their babies cry less, are more content and enjoy being included in family life. Babywearing is not about having your child attached to you 24 hours a day but modern instinctive parenting which is mostly common sense.
 
Babies of all ages thrive on cuddles and attention. How many times have you tried to put your little one down only to have them cry to be picked back up?  Babywearing skips that whole yo-yo process – by putting them in the carrier with you, the child receives the close cuddle and interaction they need and you are hands-free and able to get on with things.
 
A baby sling was my very first purchase for baby when I was about 13 weeks pregnant. The thought of being hands-free while carrying my baby appealed to my practical nature and I liked the fabrics and the simplicity. Little did I know it would become a way of life and the catalyst of a business specialising in the best baby carriers on the market.
 
Slings are very versatile and can be used from newborn right up to 2 years + When my son was a newborn I could breastfeed in public and no one else was any wiser that I even had a little one with me. As he grew, he happily sat on my hip and would charm all who met him – he loved being up on their level rather than sitting in a pram at bum height! When he was too heavy to carry comfortably in the sling for long period of time I swapped to the ERGOBaby Carrier. The Ergo can be used from newborn to 3+ and can be worn in front, hip or back carry. One of my favourite things about the Ergo is the ability to swap from back to front carry – means I can breastfeed on the go which is handy when chasing around after a pre-schooler! So here are my top 10.
 





10 Reasons to Babywear
  1. Baby is happy. Their natural need to be close to you is met and happy baby = happy Mum & Dad
  2. You are hands-free. Life doesn’t have to stop because baby needs a cuddle (this is especially meaningful when you have more than one child!)
  3. Baby can sleep anywhere or on anyone in the right carrier
  4. Perfect for ‘the witching hour’
  5. Correct anatomical positioning for baby's precious hips and spine
  6. Breastfeeding is easy and it’s private
  7. Freedom to go wherever you wish - you won’t be hindered by, or even need, a pram
  8. Great for colicky or reflux babies. Upright is a perfect position to keep nasty stomach acid down where it should be.
  9. Babywearing is a great way for Dads to bond with baby
  10. Perfect for travel - you might be allowed to take your pram to the Departure Gate but it's usually not allowed on the plane. Using a carrier means your hands are free to carry your hand luggage onto the plane - particularly valuable when travelling with little ones by yourself!
