The Baby Bjorn Mini Carrier comes in two fabric type options. There is a mesh option, as well as a 100% Cotton option, both come with a selection of colors. I actually have one of each of these carriers. (Yes, I have three carriers in total right now, plus a wrap)
Both fabric options are super soft materials, so they are perfect for delicate newborn skin. It has adjustable leg holes to make sure smaller babies are snug and safe while in the carrier. It also carries baby in ergonomic, hip healthy positions.
This carrier is so easy to use, and is perfect for newborns as you can carry them higher on the chest and have them close to listen to your heartbeat during those early months. The Baby Bjorn Mini can be put on and taken off in seconds, and adjusts by just the pull of straps.
Note: This carrier does not carry baby on the back.
Though it is most suited for those early months, it can hold a weight up to 25lbs, and up to 1 year of age.
Both choices are small enough that they can be thrown in the diaper bag, or bottom of the stroller to take with you on the go.

Why You Need It
Marlow is just over 6 months now and even though I do have a back carrier (also Baby Bjorn) these ones are my definite go to. I have a cotton one, as well as a mesh version.
The mesh one I preferred during the summer months, as I felt that it was slightly more breathable than the cotton one. I used the cotton one during the first few months after she was born, and now that the weather is getting colder I will use it again.
If little miss is refusing a nap or overtired, we strap her in this carrier facing inwards and she is out like a light within minutes.
This carrier allowed me to get things done around the house during those early months. The laundry in our building is way in the basement and I would strap her on and take her down there with me with no problems.
I also travel quite a bit on the ferry and it is great to throw in the bottom of the stroller while I am on the go so that I can just throw it on when she gets a bit fussy.
The Baby Bjorn Mini Carrier does not have a waist strap as some more structured carriers do so it is ideal for moms who have had a C-Section. It also clicks together in seconds, and is the easiest to use out of any carrier.
I had convinced myself that I was going to use a wrap this time around, but I just couldn’t get the hang of it. I came by this carrier by accident really, and didn’t know anything about them at the time. Since then, I have fell in love with it and I suggest them to all of my new mom friends.
