The ergonomic Baby Carrier One is equipped with a sturdy waist belt and padded, form-fitting shoulder straps to make it comfortable for carrying a growing child from newborn up to the age of three years. The waist belt allows you to support the child’s weight on your hips, and avoid back and shoulder discomfort. You can vary between four ergonomic carrying positions throughout the period of use, with your child sitting in either the normal or wide leg position.

Ergonomic Baby Carrier One – a hip-healthy baby carrier
The International Hip Dysplasia Institute has tested Baby Carrier One and acknowledges it as a “hip-healthy” baby carrier. The hips of a newborn baby get the correct support and are held in an optimal position with the legs angled outwards. This encourages the good hip joint development that is so important during the first months of your child’s life.

Four front and back carrying positions

Optimal height position for newborns. There is a special inward-facing carrying position for newborns to allow you to carry your baby high up on your chest and close to your heart. This provides you with eye contact and all-important closeness, while allowing you to monitor your child’s breathing.

Perfect for newborns – inbuilt insert

The ergonomic Baby Carrier One is anatomically designed to adapt to the changing needs of your growing child and is perfect for newborns. This means you don’t need any infant insert in the baby carrier for your newborn baby in the early days.

Upright position
The upright position keeps airways free and allows you to monitor your baby’s breathing.

Free arms and legs
Legs and arms can move freely in the Baby Carrier One, allowing your child to develop muscles, motor skills and balance.

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.

Our verdict:
This is definitely one of the best baby carriers on the market. The fact that it takes you from newborn through toddlerhood makes this carrier a great investment. It is extremely comfortable for both you and your little one and it’s easy to take on and off, you simply slip it over your head and fasten the shoulder and waist straps. You can use it both inward and outward facing and it offers the correct support for the carrier as well as supporting the child’s correct hip development. The carrier is machine washable and can fold up small enough to fit in your changing bag, we can’t recommend this carrier highly enough.
