We thought that baby number two would be super cheap to provide for, especially when we found out that we were due another girl. We already have all the baby stuff from the first time around; but what we didn’t consider was that in the three years that have passed since baby number one, things have changed, there are so many new and improved products on the market, the Babybjörn Baby Carrier Mini* being one of them.
When I received an email asking if I would like to be one of the first to review the Babybjörn Baby Carrier Mini I jumped at the chance, you see this time around I have a lot more to contend with and could do with being hands free a lot of the time. Last time I took leisurely strolls wandering around pushing my baby in her pushchair, just me and my baby. This time it will be me, my baby, my toddler and a dog. I’m going to need all the hands I can get and so I plan on baby wearing a lot of the time.
The Babybjörn Baby Carrier Mini (modelled not so well by Aria’s ‘baba’ who doesn’t fit in there very well at all!) fits our families needs perfectly. It is simple to take on & off and easily adjustable meaning that mummy and daddy can quickly and easily swap over. It is designed with newborns in mind and is designed from a super soft and flexible material which promises be gentle on our newborn’s skin.
The Babybjörn Baby Carrier Mini ensures that baby is carried in a natural position, with their back in a gentle c-curve. The front section opens for you to put down your sleeping baby, and there is no fabric between the baby and your chest, making the carrier perfect for skin-to-skin contact too.
The Babybjörn Baby Carrier Mini is due to launch on 11 June 2018, and is available to pre-order here. Prices start at £75 for the high quality, BCI Cotton Satin, £79 for the soft-touch 3d Jersey (as pictured) or £85 for the breathable, cool 3D mesh.
TheBabybjörn Baby Carrier Mini is most suitable during your baby’s first months. Tested and safe for 0–1 years (min. 3.2 kg, max. 11 kg).
When you carry your baby in the facing-out position, they should be at least 5 months old and weigh no more than 11 kg. The leg straps should be used to reduce the size of the leg openings for babies who weigh between 3.2 and 4.5 kg.
