Product Reviews Child Carriers

The most famous of all front carriers is the Baby Bjorn, that Scandinavian wonder worn by celeb moms among others. Front carriers like the Bjorn are basically a fabric bag worn on your chest. Your baby sort of dangles there either looking in at you (when they’re very young) or out at the world (when they gain more head control). There are also carriers known as structured soft carriers (SSC). SSC’s are only inward facing but can then be used as a back carrier when your baby is a bit older. Who Makes Front Carriers: Baby Bjorn (babybjorn.com), Britax, Baby Trekker, MaxiMom, and more. Who Makes Structured Soft Carriers: BabyHawk, Boba, Kinderpack and others.
