The new Baby Bjorn Comfort Carrier
BabyBjörn, known for high-quality, safe and stylish products for parents of young children announced a new addition to its popular baby carrier line: the BabyBjorn Comfort Carrier. This carrier features an adjustable, ergonomic waist belt that distributes the child’s weight to the wearer’s hips, so parents can carry older and heavier children more comfortably. Because the baby carrier can be used with children up to the age of 2, parents can enjoy the infant-parent bonding and hands-free mobility benefits of babywearing longer.
To ensure the child’s comfort, the Comfort Carrier offers flexible carrying positions. Facing in, the child can be carried with normal or wide leg positions. The baby carrier includes a firm, stable head support to properly position an infant’s head and neck. For older children who are fascinated by their environment and want to observe their surroundings while being carried close, they can be carried facing out, with the normal leg position. Parents should pay attention to their own child’s signals to decide whether facing in or out is appropriate.
The Comfort Carrier is made from organically grown cotton and can be used for children from 13 to 31 pounds (approximately 3 months old to 2 years old). It is machine washable and comes with a specially designed bib to protect the upper part of the baby carrier. Price is $199.95 and will be available in department and juvenile specialty stores throughout the United States and Canada in April 2010.
