Baby Bjorn Miracle Carrier Close Enough to Kiss

In addition to having extremely safe materials, Baby Bjorn designed this carrier closely with pediatricians to ensure proper ergonomic safety for baby. Hip angle is an extremely important factor when looking for a safe baby carrier. The Baby Bjorn Miracle Carrier lacks a little in hip safety. The seat isn’t quite wide enough for our liking to give enough support. It’s important to look for a carrier that supports baby at the knees, so that the hips are in the important M-position. Baby Bjorn came out with a newer design that better supports the hips and knees when they made the Baby Bjorn Air One Carrier.

COMFORT | New and Revamped

The Baby Bjorn Miracle Carrier is very similar to the original Baby Bjorn Carrier, except that it’s revamped and recharged with optimal comfort and ergonomics for both baby and parent. When it comes to little munchkin’s comfort, the Miracle Carrier is designed to grow as they grow and adjusts to fit your baby’s height. There are also soft padded supports where baby’s arms and legs touch. This provides a seamless and ergonomic design that protects baby’s delicate skin and joints. The straps under the baby’s arms are more supportive than the original Baby Bjorn carrier, leaving arms secure instead of dangling.

And comfort doesn’t stop with baby. Parent’s get to enjoy an ergonomic design that supports our tired bodies. There are wide adjustable straps for shoulders that help disperse baby’s weight evenly. Along with wide, padded shoulder straps comes an ergonomic waist belt that is easily adjustable. There is also a new lumbar support feature, a hard piece that slides up and down the back based on where it’s comfortable for you. These features help to vary the pressure points, making it easier to carry your little one for longer.

The waist belt enables you to transfer the child’s weight to your hips to relieve the pressure on your shoulders, and the back support provides stability for your lumbar region. You can distribute the weight as needed with the child in the baby carrier by adjusting straps and buckles. One nice feature is the side buckles that make it easy to remove baby from the carrier if they fall asleep.

EASE OF USE | Grows With Baby

Versatility

Although the Baby Bjorn Miracle Carrier is able to carry baby in front inward and front outward facing positions, it’s still not as versatile in carrying positions as other carriers we’ve reviewed. But, adding to versatility points is the fact that both parents can use this carrier as it isn’t size-specific. It transfers easily from parent to parent by adjusting straps and buckles for fit.

Performance

There are a few great little features that make the Baby Bjorn Miracle Carrier a good fit. One of the best features is the ability to adjust the height position to suit the size and age of your little one. Newborn babes are best carried high on the chest while older kiddos can be carried lower to help relieve your shoulders. This carrier adapts to your child’s growth and size.

Head and neck support are also a built-in feature that comes with the Baby Bjorn Miracle Carrier. Newborns have big noggins, with their head weighing almost a third of their entire body weight! The Miracle Carrier provides head and neck support with a soft cushion that rests behind their head, helping to support and nurture spine development. However, it can be easily folded down when baby is ready to face outwards.

One aspect that adds to easy use is color-coded buckles, making the multiple buckles and straps a little less confusing. There is also a safety click that will ensure that you fastened the baby carrier correctly. The buckles and straps adjust easily even after baby is already in the carrier.

PRICE + LONGEVITY | Lacks Longevity Factor

Longevity

Longevity for the Baby Bjorn Miracle Carrier is pretty average. It is able to be used from newborn stage up to 15 months, or from 8 to 26 pounds. However, many parents have stated that the Miracle Carrier is best used for newborns. There are only two different carry options, and both put a strain on parent’s shoulders as baby grows heavier. With a side or back carry, weight is being distributed to easier pressure points for adult bodies to handle. So in all reality, this carrier is best for newborns to about six months of age.
