In addition to having extremely safe materials, Baby Bjorn designed this carrier closely with pediatricians to ensure proper ergonomic safety for baby. The Baby Bjorn One Air Carrier was updated in the past few years to include a better ergonomic and comfortable design. Hip angle is an extremely important factor when looking for a safe baby carrier. The Baby Bjorn Air One Carrier safeguards your baby’s hips by keeping baby’s legs in the proper “frog” position to prevent the risk for hip dysplasia. The International Hip Dysplasia Institute has tested the Air One and acknowledges it as a ‘hip-healthy’ baby carrier. This carrier also is made to adjust to your growing baby, giving the safest fit for their size. By collaborating with pediatricians, midwives, and child psychologists, Baby Bjorn aims to develop the safest gear on the market.

COMFORT | Newest, and Revamped

The Baby Bjorn Air One Carrier is very similar to other Baby Bjorn carriers, except that it’s revamped and reconstructed for optimal comfort and ergonomics. When it comes to baby’s comfort, the Air One is designed to grow as they grow and has breathable mesh fabric. It’s made to carry a newborn high up on the chest and close to our heart. As baby gets older, your little one can be dropped down for more comfort. There is also a front outward carry and back carry for baby’s added entertainment and excitement.

And comfort doesn’t stop with baby. Parents get to enjoy an ergonomic design that supports our weary 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. 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. 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 by unbuckling the side straps. This makes for an easy transfer if baby falls asleep in the carrier, something you won’t find with other carriers we’ve reviewed.

EASE OF USE | Four Different Carries

Versatility

The Baby Bjorn Air One Carrier is a bit more versatile than it’s sibling, the Baby Bjorn Miracle Carrier. Baby Bjorn added a few more features to the Air One, making it possible to carry baby in four positions with an ergonomic design. They also added better hip and leg support. The four positions make this carrier more versatile and better for long-term use. Adding to more 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 number of features that make the Baby Bjorn Air One Carrier one of the best carriers we’ve reviewed. 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.

The Air One provides head and neck support with a soft cushion that rests behind their head.

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

The best addition to this carrier is the ability to use it in four different carry positions. Use the high inward carry for brand new babies and the low inward carry for old newborns (oxymoron anyone?) When your babe gets a little older, the front outward carry and back carry are great options that help them explore the world while also saving your back and shoulders. The front outward carry does a poor job of keeping the perfect hip angle, so make sure to switch positions frequently. The back carry is great for heavier kids, ideally for kiddos over 12 months old.

The best addition to this carrier is the ability to use it in four different carry positions.

Also, no infant insert is needed for this carrier, allowing you to use it right out of the package. With simple zipper adjustments, it’s easy to adjust between normal and wide leg positions. However, no matter which position you choose for your baby, just remember to keep their legs and hips supported at the knees and NOT dangling from the mid-thigh or hips.
