I have a 2 year old toddler with new baby due Sept. I was thinking about buying a Baby Bjorn so I can hold the baby and have hands free for toddler. Which Baby Bjorn have you found good and why? Active, Air, Original or Synergy?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I'm not big on baby carriers but I did get the Original Baby Bjorn as a gift and I am using it sometimes when I go for short walks. Although my son enjoys it for a short period, my back hurts like hell after I use it. I prefer Maman kangourou Wrap instead.My son is snuggled right into me and I feel so much comfortable with it and my son loves the closeness and you can wear it in so many different positions.

I would actually not buy any of the Baby Bjorns. They aren't very comfortable after baby reaches a certain weight, and it's not particulary good for their hips as baby basically dangles by their crotch area. Plus, a Bjorn only goes up to like 15lb. or something. Both my kids reached 15lb. before 6 months. You might as well buy something that will not only be more comfortable, but that you can use into the toddler years. I would suggest a mei tai like Babyhawk or a buckle carrier like Ergo. Those carriers you can also wear on your back, unlike the Bjorn. I love wearing my baby on my back.. makes doing chores around the house very easy!

I like the Moby! I got the Bjorn and the Moby and found the Moby is much more easy to use and feels better...
