Extreme shoulder pain
I wouldn't recommend Bjorne one to anyone, it causes terrible shoulder pain, both hubs and I are experiencing Shoulder pain from this! Not liking it at all :(((( should have looked into ergobaby apparently the soft shoulder carrier is good as it doesn't cause pain to shoulder at all. Just really disappointed for spending money on a product that gives pain.
Terrible waste of money
This is the worst designed contraption I have come across. I thought investing in the "top-of-the-line" would be worth it. It is designed terribly for newborns, babies and toddlers, as much as I've tried to use it, it's uncomfortable in all positions. What a waste, don't bother, any other model looks more comfortable.
Do not buy this product!! I literally have nothing positive to say about this product
This carrier is very hard to use and is very poorly designed. I was so excited when I bought it until I used it a few times. I was excited that you don't need a newborn insert, but my baby basically disappeared into the carrier. i thought maybe it would be better when he was bigger but no luck. The position of the top clips go right in front of baby's face and the inner straps that sit across my chest also blocked his face. Baby sits too low-even if I wore the waist strap higher than I was supposed to his legs dangled in front of mine (with the...zippers done up) and he wasn't 'close enough to kiss'- he seemed very uncomfortable and not well supported. Within 5 minutes of wearing it my shoulders were on fire as the waist belt does not take any of the weight as it should. The front facing position does not meet the hip displacia standard. It's laughable that this carrier made it to market. It seriously is garbage.
Questions & Answers
Any tips on adjusting it so it's comfortable. Bub loves it, but after a while I'm getting a sore back. I don't want to have to buy a different carrier so I want this one to work! Plus it's so easy to get on! I just must not have it adjusted quite right. Where should it be tight, where should it be loose etc?
Although it's a while since you posted this, I still thought I would reply in case it's useful for someone else using this carrier. At first I found that the carrier hurt my back too. However after some trial and error I have found that the higher up in the carrier bubs sits, the more comfortable it is. I wear the waist strap up high (to my waist rather then resting on hips) and although my bub is now 5 months, he's still in the higher, small baby position. The shoulder straps need to be firm, but if you tighten too much bubs is squashed in. Aim for baby to be high enough to kiss their head easily. This has made a huge difference in terms of comfort for me. I walk 5km easily with baby in the carrier without any issues. He's about 6.5-7kg.
