    Here's a safety warning issued last Friday.

    The baby bjorn is hard on your back--it's not very suitable for people with any sort of back issue. I found it extremely uncomfortable and painful to use. We're going for the Ergo this time around.

    I like this article. It isn't a fan of the baby bjorn...and I agree with them. A ring sling or Ergo do the job better and easier.

    I have a BECO carrier ( It's very similar to the Ergo but it's more stylish with many designs to choose from. Even my hubby uses the BECO too.

    I have a BECO carrier too, the new Gemini. Was going to get the Performance Ergo, but went for the BECO instead.

    You can carry the baby on your back, hip and front (both facing you and facing out). I researched it and found it has good ratings - though not as many as the Ergo (but to be fair, the Ergo I noticed is sold EVERYWHERE). As oi0io mentions, the BECO is more stylish and ordering directly from their US website, cost similar if not less than the Performance Ergo.

    I really like the BECO Gemini. My only complaint would be the strings used for the infant head support. Straps may be more comfortable. Otherwise, great carrier!
