The last thing I need
Well, this is the last thing I need. I guess it’s just another one of those days.
As I’ve shared in the past, we’ve been blessed by the generous gifts of family and friends who have provided us with the new and gently used items we need for safely raising our son. The few items we picket up ourselves were at great discounts thanks to the power of Craig’s List. Today, is another one of those days.
Tonight, I will be heading over to La Jolla to pick up the last thing on our baby gear list – BABYBJORN Baby Carrier Active (Sporty Black). We’re very excited.
Some of the key features include adjustable lumbar support (to protect my back) and the baby can face inward or outward. Most adjustments can be made conveniently in the front and the entire front piece can be removed to lay down our sleeping baby. Plus, it’s machine washable. The best part is we’re getting this for about half the retail price.
A newborn in the Active Carrier rests facing inward, toward you, while the adjustable head support keeps their head and neck stable. For babies less than 10 lbs., the leg straps reduce the size of leg openings to keep them secure and comfortable. Once your baby is able to support his or her own head, they are ready to turn around in the Active Carrier and sit in the forward facing position. From here, your baby will be close and see what you see without impeding your freedom. This is what makes Baby Bjorn some of the best baby carriers available.
