PRODUCT: BabyBjörn Original Spirit Baby Carrier (Blue moon)Baby Björn Original Spirit Baby Carrier (www.babybjorn.co.uk)

DESCRIPTION: A front-support fabric carrier which is designed to carry baby in either an inward facing or outward facing position. Suitable for babies between 3.5kg/8lbs and 11kg/25lbs. Available in a choice of colours.

GOOD POINTS: The BabyBjorn Original Spirit Baby Carrier is an excellent support system for your baby. It is well-made with 100% cotton fabric and great attention to detail, and is available in a wonderful range of both subtle and bright colours to appeal to any mum or dad.

The carrier is very simple yet stylish in design, and consists of a single thick-padded panel which allows baby to sit snuggly directly against your body (as opposed to other carriers which have front and back panels). It is suitable to cater for your child from birth as long as they are at least the minimum weight (and at least 21 inches in length), and can be used up to a weight of 25lbs. The great quality of the carrier means that it will easily outlast more than one child.

BabyBjörn Original Spirit Baby Carrier (White Angel)The product includes clear instructions and diagrams for use, although the carrier is very easy to use and assemble on your own, and it has some great design features which add to the overall stability and comfort, for the child as well as the adult.

The carrier comes with a cross-over strap system which sits over the shoulders and back. These straps attach to various points on each side of the panel through a series of buckle clips, latches and push-fit fasteners, each of which helps spread the weight of the child evenly. In particular, the side latches provide an excellent additional band of support around their neck and back, and each of the buckles has useful colour coding to ensure the carrier is correctly assembled. The well-designed fastenings allow the carrier to be dismantled quickly and easily, and also enable you to lay your baby down horizontally without disturbing them if they are asleep.

BabyBjörn Original Spirit Baby Carrier (Pink passion)The carrier straps are fully adjustable to cater for your body size, and adjustments can easily be made whilst wearing. A great feature of the carrier is the sliding buckle at the bottom, which allows the carrier to be adjusted to accomodate children as they grow. This buckle simply slides down to release more material, and has a clever adjustment label which gives a rough indication of how far to 'wiggle' the clip dependant on the length of your baby. Once your baby can support their own head they can be placed in a forward facing position, and the front of the panel can be folded over to enable them to see out over the top.

The Baby Bjorn carrier is very comfortable to wear, and while your baby is small it can be worn for long periods of time without putting undue strain on your back and shoulders. This makes it great for wearing either around the house or out and about, leaving you hands-free to multitask. The carrier is also easy to clean and machine washable.

In our opinion, this is a wonderful quality carrier which is durable, comfortable to wear, and very stylish.

BAD POINTS: There is no direct lumbar support which may impact on carrying your child for long periods once they reach the top end of the recommended weight range. There are no extras such as dummy holders, dribble bibs or pockets. The carrier is slightly more expensive than other baby carriers, but you do get very good quality for your money.

PRICE: Approx. £50
