Living in Durango for the past month has definitely been a change of lifestyle for our family. Instead of being confined to the indoor air-conditioning of Houston, we are constantly out and about, whether it be walking to the grocery store or our favorite restaurants, or going on a hike, we are always on the go. In Houston, I had relied heavily on our City Mini stroller when I was running errands, but we wanted to be more agile once we arrived in Colorado. My mom’s friend lent us a ton of baby items, which saved us from hauling them across the country. One of the items was the BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier Original. We quickly learned that this was Isla’s favorite item in the world. She could be crying inconsolably, and we would plop her in the carrier and silence (they aren’t kidding, it’s golden). She loved it, which obviously meant that Sasha and I adored it even more. Bye, bye stroller.

BABYBJÖRN recently released their newest baby carrier – the Baby Carrier We – and they were kind enough to send me one to try. It’s amazing. Seriously. One of the biggest benefits we have seen over the original carrier is the added support for our backs. When you are walking around for awhile, this is important! The Carrier We comes with a pressure-relieving waist belt and padded shoulder straps, which evenly distribute Isla’s weight. In addition, the carrier is designed perfectly to provide ample support for her head, back and hips. Also, it is easy for me to put Isla in the carrier without assistance from anyone else. And she loves it too. She finds it so soothing, and so we take her absolutely everywhere in it (see hiking photos below!). The best part? The Baby Carrier We is ergonomically designed for children up to three years old, so Isla will have many years ahead in this carrier!

The carrier passed the 6 mi. hike test! We absolutely love it. Sasha kindly carrier her up, and I took the trek down.



I was given the BABYBJÖRN Carrier We by BabySwede for my review. I was allowed to keep the product, but the opinion I am sharing remains my own.

    Hi, I would love to win this carrier so my husband and I can carry my little boy, Oliver Lachlan, around and go on family hikes. His grandparents would also have their fair share carrying him in it. We have been hunting around trying to find an adult friendly and child ergonomic friend,y carrier for months!

    • Hi Michelle, Thank you for entering for sweet little Oliver! We love using it for hikes too! It’s definitely very ergonomically friendly! xo

  20. I use a beco soleil to carry my baby- it’s considered best to use carriers which put their legs into a ‘froggy’ or M position, and as they get bigger baby bjorns can get uncomfy in my experience. If you want to move on when she’s bigger and it’s more uncomfortable good carriers to look into which also have buckles and easy to put on would be ergo, beco, boba, ABC baby carrier etc. Lots of info online 🙂
