[Canadian Tire] BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One $129.97 ($130 off)

Wife was looking for a baby carrier and found this model on clearance at Canadian Tire.
Not sure if that is a hot deal or if they go on sale often, our little one is coming in a few months and we just started looking for those things; nevertheless, it seems a good price for a good product. Price is also higher in other retailers and even in the US...

A few details that made us purchase this model:
1) Easy to put on - seems comfortable.
2) Seat bottom and head support are somewhat adjustable.
3) From 0-3 (8 pounds and up to 33).
4) Made of cotton - machine washable.

Thanks OP! Got one as I'm due in October.

The most other retailers have this for is 20% off retail price, so this is a really good deal!

Just some experience from my 3 kids. each one had a different carrier, but my wife and I enjoyed the "hammock" ones the best, like baby K'tan and other ones similar that stretch around your body and aren't rigid like these.

But that is just our 2 cents :)

We got the newer baby free version with updated strap support on the back and its way more comfortable. It doesn't cover the same upper weight range, but honestly... who wants to have a 30+ lb on their carrier.

I'd suggest looking at the babybjorn Free model, usually sells for $199, with a 20% off deal every now and then... might be worth it at $150, for the newer design and model, than this one. My wife also found that the model fit her build better.

We have this and it's an awesome carrier. Highly recommended. Will work from infancy up to around 16 months until they start to get too big.

I used this for my kids. Used it from ~6 months all the way until they were nearly 5 years old (!!). Travelled all around Asia with my kids, up and down mountains, in crowded subways, everywhere...
It's a great carrier. Very versatile because the baby can face in (good position for napping) or they can face out (good position for exploring). You can even wear it on your back, but I never did that.

You can throw it in the washing machine and it will come out clean. Mine tore a bit after about 4 years and then BabyBjorn sent me a brand new one.

There are a lot of good carriers out there. This one is a bit more masculine imo. My advice to parents: JUST. GET. ONE. It's the best thing ever. So much easier to get around than a stroller, especially through crowds (though we don't have to worry about that for a while..), most kids love it, and it helps you develop a bond with your kid.

I'm not sure why so many of these things cost so much. I actually got one made by infantino. Lots of good reviews for less than half the price. Maybe the padding is a bit better on these more expensive ones? Hmmm.....
Update: it was this one $53 at walmart (I think I paid $45 a year or so ago) - https://www.amazon.ca/Infantino-Upscale ... B01M2YD6LY

I don't think they cost that much. It's comparable to a high-quality backpack (e.g. Osprey). Sure, you're not carrying something important like a laptop or camera equipment, but you still want something that's made well.

Just some advice from a dad of 2 that are now 5-7. Don't put too much faith into these types of article. You will always find detractors to every product and you will always find some promoters to every product. It's insane the amount of information available on every possible baby product and you will spend countless hours thinking about what best and better for baby. If you can afford it you might by the absolute top product (because at that price point no one will admit any faults) and then your baby will cry every time you try to use it and seems to be more comfortable it the band me down from the your third cousin.

I'm not saying go cheap just saying these articles are alot more opinion than fact and you need to make choice. Babies will also let you know if they are not comfortable.


As for the deal we have a Ergo baby that last through 2 kids. It was one of the best things we ever bought. We barely ever used our Stoller as this thing was more practical in almost every way.

Used. Baby Bjorn for both kids. The One is fantastic. I used both the One and the One Air. This price One is a no brainer for new parents.

Any preference between the One and One Air?
