Choosing the perfect item for your baby used to be easy way back when – you simply picked up the only option on the shelf. Now, we have dozens of companies that just about come short of promising that if you use their product, your kid will make the Dean’s list. Never fear, we’re here to help. Here’s a brief comparison between two popular baby carrier brands, the Ergo Baby vs the Baby Bjorn.
The Ergo carrier can survive a load of up to 40 pounds while the Bjorn gives you a shorter range of between 8-26 pounds. If you plan on giving your baby a ride well into their toddling years, go with the Ergo, if you prefer that they walk on their own two feet as soon as they can, the Bjorn will make it necessary.
Comfort – for you and baby
The Ergo has a waist strap that serves to distribute the baby’s weight between your shoulders and your hips, making it more comfortable to wear for longer periods. The original Bjorn model does not have this feature so using it can prove to be tiring for your shoulders and back.
When it comes to the baby’s comfort, the Ergo sports a slightly wider seat than the original Bjorn model, providing better ride for your little one. The original Bjorn is also a front facing carrier, unlike the Ergo, which may work for some parents who want a better visual experience for their child, but might worry a parent concerned with the child’s spinal alignment. A front facing carrier makes nursing on the go a no-no as well.
It should be noted that Bjorn has since introduced a model that allows for four front and one back carrying position and also sports a waist strap.
Ease of Use
The Bjorn is a little bit easier to secure than the Ergo, since all its buckles and straps can be reached from the front. The Ergo’s straps are secured from the back, necessitating a second party to assist in putting it on and taking it off.
