SMALL AND EASY TO USE

Newborns require a lot of physical closeness, both day and night. The Baby Carrier Original is the perfect choice. You can put on or take off your baby carrier yourself without assistance. This is particularly useful when you are putting your baby to bed. When your baby falls asleep in the carrier, just unfasten the side buckles to open up the front part of the carrier. There’s no need to wake your baby.

ALL-IMPORTANT HEAD SUPPORT

Imagine if your head weighed a third of your entire body weight! That’s how it is for newborns. Newborn babies are not strong enough to hold their heads up without support for the first five months. Just like our other baby carriers, this baby carrier can be adjusted to provide your baby with the correct head and neck support.

BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier provides all-important head support
BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier Original provides you with essential closeness and contact to your child.

ESSENTIAL CLOSENESS AND CONTACT

The Baby Carrier Original provides you with all-important closeness and helps you to form a close bond with your newborn. You carry your baby high up on your chest and facing you, close to your heart. The warmth from your body and the familiar sound of your heart and your voice will make your baby feel calm and secure, while you learn to interpret your baby’s needs.

COMFORTABLE AND SECURE IN AN INSTANT

With the Baby Carrier Original, you only need to fasten a few buckles to carry your baby comfortably and securely. The colour-coded buckles and safety click will ensure that you fasten the baby carrier correctly. The baby carrier can be easily adjusted for that perfect fit. Great when you and your partner want to share the load! 

The BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier Original provides comfort and security for newborns.
You can carry your child facing outwards from five months in the BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier Original.

OUTWARD-FACING OPTION

We recommend that you carry your child facing you for the first five months. Once your child’s neck, back and hips are strong enough, you can start carrying your child facing either inwards or outwards. Most babies delight in discovering the world while safely resting against your chest.
