Five weeks ago I gave birth to my second child and with a two and a half year old toddler I contemplated whether or not to purchase a double pusher when he is very active and loves to walk.
I was asked to review the new BabyBjörn Baby Carrier Miracle and decided I would see how I went with it before forking out on an expensive new stroller.
Is it a miracle? It has certainly been a sanity saver for this mother of two! The convenience is amazing, I love that you can just clip it on and you immediately have two hands free. It makes going to the shops or walking much easier, and I like to use it around the house when my newborn is unsettled (and you know, it isn’t always safe to put down a baby when a toddler is on the hunt for cuddles)!
There has been a few occassions when I have been at home on my own with them and my toddler has been going a little stir crazy and been anxious to go outside. I put my bubba in the BabyBjörn Baby Carrier Miracle and my son either walks (it is much easier to hold his hand when I don’t have a stroller to push) or he goes in the pusher. We are out the door in minutes and the sunshine does us all some good.
If you are choosing to go down the baby carrier route, it really is essential to invest in something decent – not only for correct support for your baby, but something comfortable and ergonomic for you too.
This one a perfect fit and endorsed by the Australian College of Midwives. The baby is able to move their arms and legs freely which helps them develop fine motor skills.
The beauty of this carrier is that it is suitable from day one, and has head support for their cute little bobble heads. Your baby will love being snuggled up to mum or dad and their weight is dispensed evenly so you can wear it without any pain. As your baby grows it can be adjusted and when they can support their own head they can face forward to see the world.
BabyBjörn are well known for their baby carriers, but their latest is sure to be the best yet. Suitable from 3.5 kilos to 12 kilos, it is made from a machine washable, soft cotton and polyester mix which has been tested for baby safety.
If your baby suffers from colic or reflux, having them in this upright position might help alleviate the symptoms!
Everything you want in a baby carrier, I love my BabyBjörn Baby Carrier Miracle and it has encouraged me to get back on my feet and start walking again!
The BabyBjörn Baby Carrier Miracle has an RRP of $199.95 and is in stores now!
