Review of the Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier One Air
The BabyBjorn Carrier One Air is their best-selling, ergonomic baby carrier. You can carry your little one closely, giving you both reassurance and peace of mind.
What are the benefits of baby wearing?
There are so many things I have loved about using a baby carrier, the main ones are:
- my babies being close, snug and secure
- having my hands free while still carrying the baby
- helping my babies get to sleep while I go about my day
What Baby Carrier should you buy?
When considering what is the best baby carrier for your family, have a think about your own needs:
- how old is your baby?
- do you need a supportive baby carrier with back support?
- where will you use the carrier – indoors and outdoors?

Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier One Air Information
Features of the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One Air
This lightweight baby carrier has suited our family well. Its features include:
- airy and cool 3D mesh that dries rapidly
- ergonomic and comfortable in soft material
- fully adjustable size & seat width
- babywearing from newborn to 3 years, plus facing-out & back carrying
- two height positions to ensure your baby is at the right height
- a wide, fully adjustable seat area that ensures a comfortable and ergonomically correct position for your child’s hips – if you’re looking for a hip dysplasia baby carrier. The International Hip Dysplasia Institute has tested Baby Carrier One Air and acknowledges it to be “hip-healthy”. This means that the baby carrier provides the correct support to your child’s hips and encourages good hip joint development, which is especially important in your child’s first months
- adjustable head support that protects your newborn baby and gives the correct support until your baby is able to hold their head up unaided.
An infant baby carrier that grows with your baby is great for your budget too. We used the Baby Bjorn Carrier One Air from when my son was tiny and later as a toddler baby carrier.
It’s such an easy baby carrier to put on and use – and it has a lot of additional benefits too!

What do we think of the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One Air?
As a baby under the age of one, we carried my son on our front with him facing us. I loved being able to see he was ok and have him smile up at me! If he fell asleep in the carrier, it also meant I could keep an eye on him. Carrying him meant I could get chores done too as my hands were free.
As he grew, we used to have him on our front facing outwards when we were out and about. He loved this – it meant he could see the world while still being close! Whether taking kids to the park or the just to the local shop, it’s a really comfortable outdoor baby carrier that protects your baby when you’re out and about. The range does include the Baby Bjorn Carrier One Outdoors specifically for this – find out more about that one here.
When he grew to being a toddler, carrying him on our backs was really comfortable. I have some back issues so needed a carrier that is really supportive and isn’t going to aggravate my back ache.
When I was researching baby carrier reviews looking for the best baby carriers for newborns, this Baby Bjorn mesh carrier was recommended time and time over. Many of my friends purchased one for their first babies and kept it to use for their second too.

After being so stressed from all the information people were giving me I was told to throw the books away, and stop listening to everyone else, just be a Mum.
The best advice I was given:
Always follow your heart
Understanding learning is all part
Of a parenthood journey with up’s & downs
Treasure moments, memories and ultrasounds.
Fantastic, i’d love one they look amazing.
Trust your instinct
All these baby books, especially Gina Ford etc are just guidance. Do your best and that’s good enough.
Sleep when you can and always say yes to offers of help as you never know when you will see either again!!
Sleep, sleep sleep – the housework will keep.
The best advice (that I didn’t listen to) was to ask for and accept help. As a first time mom, I was to proud and stubborn to ask for and accept help and I was constantly overwhelmed and exhausted. With my second little one arriving in the next month, I will gladly accept all the help that’s offered. A exhausted mom is not a mom at her best.
Treasure every moment as they grow up way to fast
I think the best was when someone told me that I would find my own way, and that I was doing a great job. Encouragement and reassurance were the best forms of communication I got. Every baby and 1st time mummy are on the learning path together.
Be flexible with your baby’s needs and changes and just cherish every moment.
Babies are resilient. They do bend so bend their legs when bathing or changing. When patting or rubbing their the backs to get the wind up, do it so the baby can feel it.
Accept any help, even from well wishing neighbors and even when you are too shy to ask for help because you want to feel strong and in control. And it’s ok to feel weak and helpless as it’s life and it’s never perfect as imagined ❤️
Best advice is to sleep when the baby is sleeping.
1. You can’t pump the car radio like you used to. Baby’s don’t rave. Yet. Also they have sensitive ears.
2. The supermarket will become your sanctuary. When you get the chance to go on your own, take your time, walk up and down every aisle. Heaven.
3. Coffee. Smell it. Drink it. Surrender to it.
4. Where possible buy at least one outfit that matches one of your bubs outfit. It will make you smile on a day that’s less than perfect.
5. Invest in a quality baby carrier.
I was given a lot of conflicting advice when I held my baby girl for the first time. The best advice after I was a little puddle of fear for not knowing which advice to follow was from a Coles checkout assistant. He said “it looks like you are doing a great job. When my wife had her first baby we very early decided that it is best to trust your mum instincts, they were always spot on”. So before I blibdlb follow any advice, I trust myself to know my child best and the best solution comes from that.
“Your baby thinks you are the most wonderful mum in the World”. Good advice for me as I over worry. Mind you, that baby is 7 now and today he told me he likes Dad better.
I need this carrier to take my little Miss 11 months on holidays! Sounds amazing.
Best advice is to sleep when they sleep, I felt so guilty about it in the early days but when you’re having broken sleep for months and months you really need that daytime nap to recharge the batteries x
Forget the spick & span house, close eyes to mounting piles of washing, supermarket buys instead of home baked biscuits… and sleep when babe sleeps
“The best thing you can get for your child is a village, because parenting isn’t just for mums.” Becoming a stay-at-home dad was the best decision I’ve ever made. It is such a shame that social norms prevent most men from taking time off work to raise their children.
Enjoy the little things because time passes and things change and what we are left with are our memories.
Best advice: don’t take other people’s advice (to heart ) ! I was so overwhelmed by all the advice in the beginning and I thought I had to do everything or I was a bad parent . And of course everything was contradictory. So the best advice I got was to trust myself and my instincts. And to u firsthand that other peoples advice were suggestions I could take or leave.
Hi, I’m a first time mum with a one month old, my advice is:
Find your 3am friend (or be someone’s 3am friend) because you’ll need it. Because it’s always nice to have a go to person at your most volunerable moment, to talk/text/cry for help without feeling embarrassed. :)
3am friend: someone you know you can comfortably call and will be there for you at wee hours no matter how big or small the situation may seem.
You will never get everything right. Trust yourself and your instinct and the rest will follow
Not quite a mum yet. First bub die in September but so far the best advise I have heard is ” do what feels right for you and your baby, many people will give you advise and opinions along the way but at the end of the day it’s what works best for you and your baby”
I would love to win one of these carriers will be so handy on the farm as there are many places a pram can’t go.
So it was my first daughters first birthday and she got a whole heap of presents that are tossed aside in the excitement, then my mum brings out a present that was a cardboard box wrapped in layers of wrapping paper! It was an absolute hit.
She always says “you were raised with saucepans to bang together”. And she’s right it’s the small things in life that make kids happy.
I am currently pregnant at the moment with my first child and the best advice I’ve been given is to not stress over everything and to stay away from pregnancy horror stories.
N.B. I have followed your FB and Insta account ad Simz ST and Silver SQ respectively :-)
Sleep when the babies are sleeping
I was told to just follow my instinct as this is normally right
To not forget about me. It’s so easy to get lost, in the craziness of a new baby, but to be the best mum you need to look after you too!
The best advice my mom ever gave me was to take the time to ‘be’ with your kids. To play, to love, to cuddle & invest in your kids from a young age.
sleep when baby sleeps because you don’t get a lot when they are little
Best advice i received was to just be yourself. Trust yourself and embrace motherhood. Motherhood instincts will take over and you will know exactly what to do with your bundle of joy. That was so true. As soon as my little man arrived everything change. And after a week it felt like i had been a mother for years.
The best piece of advice I was given as a naive, bloaty faced pregnant lady was to trust yourself and do whatever it is that works for you and your baby – have I always heeded this advice? Well no, I’m just as guilty as the next new Mum of googling EVERYTHING. Sometimes I google to see if my baby is normal, or do I need to ‘fix’ this, mostly I google for reassurance but end up feeling more worried than I ever was to begin with… then I do what I should have done before I opened google: tell myself to trust my instincts, kiss the chubby cheeks of my perfect little boy, pop him in his wrap and take us both for a walk in the sunshine and fresh air because that always works for us!
Best advise I have been given is not be hard on yourself , do what you think is right and don’t be afraid to ask for help x
sorry a dad here. Support your wife by sharing chores . Don’t wake bub up if due for a change or feed. He will soon let you know if he needs something so rest in these times.
The best advice I was given was to do what works best for you and your baby. There is a lot of great advice out there, but you know your baby better than anybody, and your mental well-being and bub’s health are of utmost importance – so do what works for you both!
My first bub is due in June, so I’m probably still in the idealistic, kinda-know-what-to-expect-but-also-not-really stage! I work as a child psychologist, so already read a lot of parenting books, and my Mum’s a Mothercraft nurse, and I think the best advice I’ve gotten so far has come indirectly, through conversations with her. Things like, being intentional about not losing sight of me, Alexandra the person, even though for the next chapter of life, a huge part of my identity will be Alexandra the Mama and there’ll be so many life changes that will come with that, as well as being aware of where my child is at developmentally (what he can and can’t do, neurologically and physically) as I seek to challenge him, support him, and nurture him.
Don’t be too strict with your routine and never wake a sleeping baby ?
The best advice I have ever been given was from a close friend of mine who said “Just remember that no one has ever had your baby before, they are special and unique and only you will know what is best for them”. This helped me get through the long nights and tired days when I was not sure if I was doing everything ‘right’.
Take time out for yourself…even if it’s a 5 minute coffee break. Its good for the soul and great for the baby and for you to appreciate them even more!
Dont feel pressured by everybody else’s opinions and comments. Do what you think is best for your baby!
Follow your instincts. You will get so many opinions told to you and so much advice thrown your way, bub you know your bub so follow your instincts and do what’s right for you.
I’m still getting loads of advice as i’m having my first baby in August, eek! But so far the best has been that its ok to be scared and to cry and just ask for help when its needed
I’m still getting loads of advice as I’m having my first baby in August, eek!! But so far the best has been Its ok to be scared and to cry but just trust yourself and ask for help when its needed.
Take in advice from everywhere and then follow your own instincts. Your parenthood experience is unique and will evolve as your bond with your baby grows. Trust your intuition!
“If it’s not broken, don’t fix it”.
We compare everything to other mums, and other babies, and often think something must be wrong with us, if what we’re experiencing differs to someone else. My Mum would say this to me in regards to sleep, eating, development, basically to just to go with the flow, and to not and try change things that don’t need changing!
They grow up way to quick. Enjoy every little moment
After giving birth use a new born nappy instead of maternity pads, a lot cheaper and soaks up a lot more.
Stop thinking about what you or your baby should be doing and just accept each day as it comes.
“Your baby is crying because he is bored of your milk. Crush a malt biscuit and mix that with some cows milk for him – he’ll be much happier”…the advice given to me about my week old son!!! This taught me why it is important NOT to listen to all the advice I was given willy-nilly!
Accepting or asking for help.
Don’t be too proud to accept offers or ask family or friends for help as it means you rest more, enabling you to spend more QT with bubs.
Suggest visitors to bring over food that you can re-heat & eat, saves you prep & cook time.
When visitors are in your home, don’t feel obligated to serve them & fuss over them, ask them to help you or with some simple chores like laundry or putting heavy things away.
Everyone is happy to help
First, Love yourself.
when nothing seems to settle your baby, try a dummy
Enjoy it and don’t put too much pressure on yourself or your baby. And drink lots of water – half the time when you think you are hungry you are actually just thirsty.
Cuddling & holding your baby does not spoil him/her – what your baby needs from you is comfort and reassurance. So if it calms your baby to be held then cuddle away! The snuggle years can be all too fleeting!
Trust your instincts and don’t get stressed out by all the conflicting advice out there
Baby wearing is the best way to keep your baby close and safe while you travel or carry out daily chores. Not to forget those spl kisses and cuddles are an added bonus
I was told to parent baby number 1 with the idea ‘would I do this/worry about this if this were my second child’. This helped me to ditch nap time if it was a total train wreck and walk baby in the pram instead, let people hold baby for me even if he cried, not tip toe around Baby too much or be too precious about lots of things that I won’t be able to with number two. This was invaluable advice for me.
You can’t spoil a baby, cuddle them, carry them, hold them.
Trust your instincts and do what works for you and bubs. Trying to follow everyone’s advice will drive you crazy
All that stuff you read goes out the door once you have your child – not all babies are the same! Do what is right for you and your baby.
Everyone will give you their advice. Take it in, but you do what works for you and your baby because they are all so different.
Trust your mumma instincts- if something doesn’t feel right it probably isn’t! Whether that be sleep training, sickness, daycare centre etc. Trust yourself because you’re the one who knows bub best.
Dont worry about what others thought of your house or how you look, as long as you and baby are fed and happy thats all that matters
All babies are different yes listen to others BUT listen to your inner self you are the mother and you know what is best for bub
I had twins first off and we were advised that when one twin woke up for a feed wake the other one and change and feed together. Also that babies initially need to be put down for morning and afternoon naps.
Trust your gut, don’t believe everything you read and don’t google everything
Try relax and just spend time with your baby, because every baby is different
Sleep at every opportunity and don’t so no when help is offered
