Babybjorn Baby Carrier Original Cotton


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.

You can put on or take off the Baby Carrier Original without assistance. This is particularly useful when your child 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. 
The Baby Carrier Original can be used from 3,5 kg and is anatomically designed to carry your growing child without an infant insert. The child's upright position in the carrier keeps the airways free and allows you to monitor your child’s breathing. Legs and arms can move freely in the carrier, allowing your child to develop muscles, motor skills and balance. 

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. 

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! 

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.

Easy to get on and off
Reviewed on 23 November 2017
This is the only baby carrier I have tried which I can easily get on and off, and bubs in and out by myself with ease. Bubs loved to be in here, especially when she was big enough to face out. She did happily sleep in here, but as she grew I found I couldn’t have her in it for more than 1 hour without my back getting sore. The straps are easily adjustable to switch between users and as baby grows. This carrier is very useful for shopping or doing housework when bubs is young!

I tried this carrier and it was comfortable to wear to begin with but then my back really started to ache. I find it to be really unsupportive and it didn’t feel secure either. The only plus was it was easy to put on like some other carriers I’ve tried.
Reviewed on 22 November 2017
It’s very comfortable and allows for me and my husband to easily switch between us with the adjustable straps. It does start to get a little uncomfortable after wearing for more then one and a half hours with a 8kg baby but for short trips and smaller children it’s great. I also love that you can turn your child to face outward when they are bigger!
Best support
Reviewed on 20 November 2017
I originally bought another cheaper brand baby carrier which was uncomfortable, painful on my back and sat really low down. I almost didn't bother until a friend lent me her Babybjorn for a week. It was so good and I went and purchased one myself. My fussy 3 month old sits up high on my chest and is still able to look around (he's quite the inquisitive little man). It is really easy to put on, just a few clicks and it's on. And no back pain which is a must for me as I have a lower back injury. Although there are other models that have the leg support for bubs, I found that this one I can still tuck his legs up and as he grows (quite rapidly at this stage!) they can move freely and not be restricted. I would highly recommend this Babybjorn carrier for those who need something supportive for their backs. And of course the baby too!
Easy to use and versatile.
Reviewed on 16 October 2017
I was given this as a gift and is great. My bub had always hated the wraps but this worked a treat. My only issue is that it cuts into my neck a bit and also I get a bit of lower back pain. Otherwise it's great for a quick trip to the shop.
Light and Easy
Reviewed on 04 September 2017
It's so comfortable to wear when your baby is little (little i mean roughly around 3 months), you don't feel like you are carrying any weight. However when your baby got older (roughly around 4months 7kgs), your back can be abit sore, if you are wearing it for an extended period of time. It's very easy to use, I did get help for the few first times trying to put my son into the carrier. After using it for a week, I was able to get my baby in and out just on my own. Very easy to store. you can just roll it up and put in the backpack. The best thing about this product is that, I can have my hands free and get the house work done, while my baby is happily inside the carrier.
Our Favourite!

The Babybjorn not only gives you hands-free access to life but settles our baby girl like nothing else! She loves to be close to us all the time, and so by using the Babybjorn we've found that her head rests perfectly against either mum or dad and she relaxes straight away no matter where we are. She feels much more safe and secure than other products we've tried, and we have no doubt that whatever we're doing, she is comfortable and at ease.
Easy to use

We bought this carrier and love it. It is easy to use. When your by yourself you can easily put the baby in safely. Others I tried were hard. It has soft material and lots of air flow so the babe doesn't get too warm.
Perfect for quick trips
Reviewed on 22 August 2017
I bought this carrier to use for trips where I wanted something quick and easy to put on. It's brilliant for groceries or short walks but I do find that it lacks a bit of support and my back does hurt if I have bub on for more than half hour. it's perfect for what I bought it for though and much easier than my ergobaby which I use for longer periods due to the additional support, but it's far more fiddly to put on
Easy and not bulky
Reviewed on 17 August 2017
I have found this carrier to be so easy to get on and off. It has a simple slide clips on the sides and then has a couple of different options for how close your babies head is to you depending on if they like to be snuggled close or keeping an eye on the world going by. It is also not bulky and quite slim so I didn't get too hot wearing it like I did with the ergo. It has a narrower base than the way they make most carriers now due to the hype about hip dysplasia however from what I've read unless they already have hip dysplasia, it's really not so bad but be prepared for some people to give you a hard time about you damaging your babies hips by using it! Perfect for picking up other kids from school, grocery shopping or around the house when you need hands free.
Comfortable & Supportive
Reviewed on 09 August 2017
I was given the BabyBjorn carrier as a gift before our baby born. I had baby carriers with my other babies which I didn't really use because they felt uncomfortable on my back and unsafe for bub when I moved around. However the Babybjorn Original baby carrier is fantastic! It is very supportive for your back and sits comfortably with creating sore spots. It also holds baby nice and secure. I have used this product on lots of walks with my older children around the Canberra hills. I would highly recommend to anyone.
Easy to use
Reviewed on 07 August 2017
This carrier is easy to use, light and is compact. The only issue I have is that it doesn't provide lower back support so I can't use it for longer periods of time as my back gets sore. It is good for short trips, putting up the washing and odd jobs when I like to have two free hands. My baby doesn't mind being in it though as she's close to me and secure.
So comfortable
Reviewed on 06 August 2017
I was given this for my baby shower from my sister in law (a very experienced mum) and to say it helped me out in ones first few months would be an understatement. It's so easy to use and extremely comfortable, I had a very unsettled reflux baby who wanted to be held and was only happy when she was up right so she basically lived in this baby carrier. The best thing is that your hands are free so you can still get all of your other busy mum jobs done!! This product basically saved my sanity and I would happily recommend it to any expecting parent. The support across your back is ideal as you will be doing a lot more bending and looking down then u normally do and your back and shoulders can become tight so anything that can relax some of that tentsion is perfect Kylie Lawrence
Best item I've ever purchased!
Reviewed on 30 July 2017
I was recommended this by a fellow mum friend so I bought it and it's honestly changed my life! School runs are so much easier now and it's even helped with my back ache by supporting my back. This is incredibly easy to use if you're on your own. I take it everywhere with me and I'm so glad I have it. My son loves to be carried so grocery shopping is a breeze now, no more tears! You will not be disappointed! It's also easy to clean, I wipe it down and it comes up like new. I 100% recommend this to every single mum out there
My absolute favourite

I am so glad I purchased this! It's been amazing. My son loves to be carried so I use this every day on the school run, doing groceries, going shopping, walking, ducking out to do a few errands. Pretty much anything. It's amazing and I love it
Worn to death... but still going!
Reviewed on 03 July 2017
We were given this carrier along with 2 others (sling and a wrap) and have won this one to death... We have two big boys (18mths apart) and the bjorn has been a god send. So easy to use, safe and secure and washable... thoroughly recommend ivee the others as my boys were so big i didnt feel they were safe or supported enough in the other types after 5 months old...
Loved for its ease of use.
Reviewed on 30 June 2017
This is my carrier of choice for birth to around six months of age because it's so simple to use and allows me to keep baby close while still having the use of both hands so I can get on with my day. While there are other baby carriers out there that have better back support, they take some time to put on and require two hands or assistance to fasten. This one is so easy to use that I can get it on in a matter of seconds and fastened with just one hand, which is often all that's available when you have several children in your household. For older babies it does get a bit hard on the back due to the crisscrossing stabiliser which sits right at the centre of my back so around six months old I switch baby to a carrier with better back support, but in those first six months I more than get my money's worth out of this carrier! It also holds up well to being washed on delicate cycle in cold water and air dried. I've repurchased this carrier a couple of times throughout my parenting career and highly recommend it.

Good carrier
Reviewed on 30 June 2017
I have this carrier that I use for my granddaughter and I find that she really enjoys being in it. She is 8 months now so she will face out when we go for walks and face in for naps. I find that the carrier is not comfortable for long periods. It is ok if you were to carry baby for half an hour to 45 minutes. Anything more and my back starts to ache. My daughter also has the Ergobaby 360 which is much more comfortable, however also more expensive. I have also read that the Baby Bjorn is not great for baby's hips and that the Ergobaby is a better option for hip health. I therefore try not to leave her in there for too long. Overall, I am happy with the carrier, however I do believe there are better ones on the market.
Good carrier, baby loves it
Reviewed on 29 June 2017
This is a good carrier and baby loves being in it. It is soft and easy to use. However, I find that it is quite painful for mum's back and it also does not look as comfortable for baby as the Ergobaby Adapt carrier.
Not enough support for weight rating
Reviewed on 28 June 2017
Considering this is rated up to 11kg it doesn't have adequate back support. I absolutely loved using this for my boy up until about 7kgs. After that it was far too painful for my upper back. Little babies are fine but heavier ones need the waist belt support
Very convenient
Reviewed on 27 June 2017
This has been awesome. So easy to do the school run in the mornings and when I'm running some errands I use this and my son sleeps or loves looking around. Easy to use, it's my favourite carrier (I've tried a few)
Average carrier
Reviewed on 26 June 2017
I like that this carrier is very easy to use, it's easy to put on and adjust. It is rated up to 11kg but my 9kg baby was a bit squished in it particularly with a jumper on. It definitely didn't have the back support to wear for more than 15-20 minutes at a time, so choose something else if you want to wear for long periods.

I used the babybjorn carrier for all 3 of my children. Was so easy to use and made my life a lot easier when I needed to do things when my baby was having an unsettled day... also makes life a lot more manageable as you can carry your baby around while attending to your other kids. Great to use at home, outdoors and when you travel.
