Baby Bjorn is the name that leaps to mind when you think about a front infant carrier. And for good reason - this is a superior front pack backed by 25 years of experience in the market.
New from Baby Bjorn, the Active Carrier has the same excellent features as the company's other bestselling carriers plus extra back support for you, and a roomier fit for your baby. It actually includes two pieces, the carrier plus a padded back harness, which helps prevent forward slouching and makes carrying your baby for long distances or periods of time much more comfortable. The carrier clips easily onto the harness, and all the adjustments are still made in front, quickly and easily. The Active Carrier is also slightly longer than Baby Bjorn's other carriers, offering a little more room for your baby.
The Baby Bjorn Active Carrier lets you stay active and keep your newborn close to you where he'll feel safe, warm and happy. Your newborn rides in the Active carrier facing you. Adjustable head support keeps his head and neck stable. Leg straps reduce the size of leg openings (they should always be used for babies under ten pounds). Once your baby is able to hold his head up on his own, he is ready to be forward facing (just fold the neck support down).
The Active infant carrier adjusts to fit your child up to 25 lbs (about 2 1/2 years). Suggested modifications based on weight and height are enclosed with the Carrier. The Active carrier is easy to adjust on your own - handy when its just you and the kid. Color coded latches simplify putting on and taking off the carrier. Another perk is that you can easily move a sleeping child from carrier to crib without disturbing her. The Baby Bjorn Active carrier's design makes it easy to assemble, to adjust, and to wear.
