The Bjorn Active Carrier takes all the features you need in a good carrier and puts it into one. You are able to have your baby face you or face out, it also has small straps to adjust the carrier for newborns. It comes in a few different colors, and also has terry cloth covers for your teething baby. Its very easy to adjust from one person to the next. I am 5'6" and my husband is 6'4", and we both wear it all the time with no problem making the adjustments inbetween. You can easily put it on and put the baby in it without any assistance. And its machine washable. The nice thing about the Bjorn Active is that it has the extra back support. Babies get heavy, and you will be thankful you got the back support after 2 hours of wearing them around town.
