Most Helpful Reviews on the BabyBjorn Baby Carrier Synergy.

  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) – My husband and I started out with the regular Bjorn, which hurt our backs after about 30 minutes. Then we tried the Bjorn Active, which made a huge improvement in terms of comfort, but we were unable to wear it in warm California weather because it was so big and bulky. Finally Bjorn figured it out – combine the Air and the Active -and you have the Synergy. I just wish it wasn’t so ridiculously expensive…. (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – Over the course of three children we have had FIVE carriers: Two slings, a Baby Bjorn, a Snugli and the Ergo Baby. The Bjorn is definitely the best looking and very easy to use…. My big complaint is that when the kids get larger (or if you wear it for more than 20 minutes at a time) it really starts to kill your back. This is because the design keeps all the weight on your shoulders….  (read more and buy it at Amazon.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – Completely worth the money. Complete quality…. I have a 9 month old and one due in 5 weeks. My 9 month old isn’t too big for it, in fact she has fun in it, and I mainly bought it for the next one so that I can hold both of them at the same time…. The back support is great…my back is never hurting while wearing it…and I am 8 months pregnant carrying a 21 lb. child in it!… (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  • 4.0 out of 5 stars(4/5) –  Comfortable but…hard to put on!… Love the “active wear” material. Was breathable so I didn’t have to worry about my baby overheating from too much body heat…. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  • 3.0 out of 5 stars(3/5) – … The mesh materials don’t make that much difference in the baby’s temperature or comfort, so either the original or original mesh is personal choice…just don’t buy this super-pricey one. Its really no different and gives your back no more significant support than the original. Carrying your baby on the front of you is safest, but no matter what carrier, wrap, or sling you use, it will weigh on your back to some degree…. (read more and buy it at Babiesrus.com)
  • 5.0 out of 5 stars(5/5) – My wife and I tried a Snugli carrier only to realize that our baby girl would get frustrated that she couldn’t face away from us. We decided to go Bjorn and chose the Synergy for the cool mesh and back support. The Synergy is truly incredible. First of all, it is super easy to use after you read the instructions… I can put my daughter in it by myself and I can lay her down and disconnect her from my body without waking her. The mesh allows great air flow, and I have never felt overheated. Also, the back support is great for long stints…. (read more and buy it at BuyBuyBaby.com)
