Congratulations! I'll be in touch soon!
This will be my last Show & Tell for awhile, (more details to come) but it is one that I am really excited to share with you.
I have always believed that a baby carrier is an essential piece of baby gear. Not only are there great benefits to wearing your baby, but there is also the reality that sometimes, with baby in tow, you still need to have your hands free.
So I was really excited to get to try out the new Active Carrier from BabyBjorn.
Ever since my pregnancy with Emma, I have had nagging lower back problems. And old college volleyball shoulders still plague me now and then, as well. This makes baby-wearing often uncomfortable for any length of time. So I am always on the lookout for a baby carrier that is comfortable and easy on my neck, back and shoulders.
The Active Carrier, however has been extremely helpful with all my babywearing "issues". The carrier has sturdy padded straps that are comfortable, not digging into my shoulders and back. And the best part, to me, of this carrier is the extra lumbar support in the back that can be adjusted with the carrier straps.
Among carriers that I've used, I believe this to be one of the easiest to transition into and get used to using. I have also found my children to adjust to it very easily, too. It can be used for newborns (8 pounds, 21 inches) and then transitioned into an outward facing position as baby grows older.
And let's also not forget the great colors that the carrier comes in. (I finally decided to stop being neutral in all my baby gear and opted for the pink and navy!)
And today, thanks to the generous folks at BabyBjorn, I have an Active Carrier to give away to one lucky MommyCoddle reader. Simply leave a comment on this post to be entered. I'll announce the winner on Thursday.
(Please note: This post is only open to US and Canada residents.BabyBjorn sent me an Active Carrier for this review.)

I’m 18 weeks pregnant and have been looking for a baby carrier. Thanks so much for the recommendation!
That’s awesome! Would love to win one!
The active carrier looks great. And with only eight weeks left I am trying to get things together.
I have a wrap and a sling. I used the wrap with my middle son for over a year. We’re having issues with the infant and the sling, though. He doesn’t like the “can’t hold your head up yet” positions. I’m hoping he’ll like the forward-facing and hip carries better.
That baby carrier would be great to own!!! Love the pink one too (wish I had girls!) 🙂
Would love to win this for me and my 5 month old!
Ooh I’m only 2 months along, but would love to start out my baby planning with this!
Looks sweet and cozy!
love that pink!!.
This is an awesome give away! Bjorn makes great carriers. We’d love this for peanut #3 coming in December. =-)
oh neat! what a great giveaway!
I would love love love to win this!SusanUttad@aol.com
I have never owned a Baby Bjorn. I’ve heard mixed reviews, but would love to try one out for myself! 🙂
How generous! I have been researching baby carriers for a while, and would love to try this on my first little one coming early fall! Thank you for the giveaway.
Oh my gosh! What a FABULOUS giveaway! I am a huge, huge, huge believer in babywearing. I don’t have any kids, but I’m a nanny, and I always amaze the moms I work for when they see how happy and content their babies become when they’re able to share activities with you, or just snuggle in close when they need to rest. I haven’t tried the Active line yet, but I’ve been looking into it because of the extra lumbar support. Thank you so much for such a generous giveaway!!!
My sister really REALLY needs one of these. My niece is growing into a little chunk and the last time I was home I pulled all the muscles on the left side of my back carrying her around for 2 days straight!
this is great! thanks for the recommendation!
we have been trying to figure out the sling/carrier thing with our newborn. this one looks great – so glad to have your recommendation!
Count me in! I’d love to win this for my dear friend who is having baby #3 after 6 years and 3 miscarriages. Thanks for a chance to win.
My little one is due in December. We would LOVE one of these!
With baby girl due in 4 weeks this would be perfect!
I LOVE Baby Bjourn I have the older one and would love to try this one out with the next baby! Thanks for the recommendation.
Thanks for the info…I am expecting my first in November and haven’t yet decided on which brand/type to buy. This looks perfect as I’ve been having lots of back pain, too.
That is a great thing. One of the women at church uses one and it is great since she can have her hand free to do other things which is good for her with having to older ones.
I am going to have my first baby in November. This looks like a great baby carrier.
My favorite brand of carriers – my kids lived in them! I’d love to win one for my sister-in-law!
I’d love the chance to win this for our impending adoption.
I love the one I used when by kids were babies and I’d love to give this to one of my many pregnant friends.Thanks for the chance!
I have heard people rave about this exact baby carrier.I would love to try it out with my six month old..He loves being carried. I am just not as strong as I would like to be.
Oh that looks so nice! Would help to carry my rather hefty baby boy for more than 20 minutes!
Wonderful! I could really use one of these!
Oh, I would love to have one of these.
looks great! thanks for the giveaway!!
I’ve been trying to talk myself into a cheap baby carrier, but my back is already objecting, and my first baby’s not due for 10 more weeks! This carrier looks totally great.
I am having my first baby in 4 weeks and I would love this!
I used my sling a ton with my first and now that I am only 8 (EIGHT! wah?) weeks away from our second I have a feeling that having hands free will come in handy 🙂
i hope it’s not too late!!
maybe this means i will be lucky!
I’ve seen so many mamas wearing these this summer, must be a great carrier.
With baby #3 on the way, I will need all the hands I can spare. Thanks for the chance!
I had one with my first child, 6.5 years ago, and it was uncomfortable. They came out with the lumbar support ones *right* after we got ours, of course. 🙂 I’d love to try it out again. thanks and enjoy your blog break!
Hi Rebecca! You won the baby bjorn giveaway! Congratulations! Please send me an email at mommycoddle (at) gmail (dot) come with your contact information and I’ll pass it on to BabyBjorn!
If you are the woman in the picture you are so beautiful, really you look like a model! Any way I wanted to tell you that my girl is almost nine months old and that her reflux is almost gone, no more drugs, no more 40 min in vertical position, it feels so good! And It seemed like it wasn’t going to end but it did, so hang in there that in no time you will be in the same place as I. ;o)
I have yet to find a carrier that I love. This could be it.
I need this! I have an old Bjorn without the lumbar support —
this is the best one i have tried on so far in my search for the perfect carrier! Would be nice to win one of my very own !
thanks for the post 🙂
