We first purchased the Baby Björn original baby carrier after an unsuccessful run with a wrap. This actually very quickly became one of my favorites because of how easy it was to put on. And how quickly my Little calmed down in it. My only concern was that there was not much head support. We picked ours up in the cotton material so it seemed a bit better than mesh but I was quite disappointed.
As far as appearance goes this is a fairly simple carrier and aesthetic really depends on if you choose mesh or cotton. There are 5 color options for Cotton and 2 for Mesh. Granted we do have cotton, I have noticed that no matter the length of time in this carrier it is still highly breathable.
From extensive searching the Baby Björn Original baby carrier is great for newborns but not much older. As there is zero back support, after a few hours wearing it, you certainly notice.
This carrier is great for newborns and around the house wear. I wouldn’t suggest much weight in it or long durations on.
As the comfort level is really dependent on how my body has taken this carrier after extensive wear, I also noticed that my Little absolutely does not like when she’s in it and I sit down. The reasoning, I am unsure as she doesn’t mind sitting in other carriers/ slings.
This said, if you are looking for a carrier to soothe your Little, this is the one.
When my Bebe gets fussy she calms and often falls asleep when in her Baby Björn Original and this model can be purchased directly from Babys Den, here
