Bottom Line: Nice that child can face in or out, but uncomfortable. A similarly featured, but better carrier is the Beco Gemini. If you’re willing to sacrifice outward facing option, the Boba 4G is even better.
Pros: I initially decided I wanted this carrier, because I had heard of BabyBjorn even before I had kids (from watching the movie Knocked Up). An advantage is that the kid can face outward or inward and the seat length is adjustable as the child gets taller. It is easy to get on and off. Lastly, probably the best thing about a BabyBjorn carrier is that it is from a well-established company that makes a high quality product. My husband actually prefers this carrier to every other one we own and uses it up until about 2 and a half or 3 years. He likes to wear our babies facing outward (since there is no milk in the other direction, anyway).
Cons: Despite the quality of the manufacturing, the design of the BabyBjorn is still flawed in my opinion. I find it uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Despite trying a couple different methods of attaching the clips, when the baby is small (under 9 months or so), the head support still flips up into the child’s face occasionally when facing outward.
