GENERAL QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR BABY CARRIERS

9 articles

When can you start using BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers?

You can start using Baby Carrier Original from birth (at least 3.5 kg and 53 cm) to 11 kg. 

You can start using Baby Carrier Miracle from birth (at least 3.5 kg and 53 cm) to around 15 months (max. 12 kg).

You can start using Baby Carrier One from newborn (at least 3.5 kg and 53 cm) to around 3 years (max. 15 kg and 100 cm). 

When can I start carrying my baby facing backwards in my baby carrier?

Following advice from paediatricians, with whom we collaborate, we recommend that your baby be carried facing inwards in the baby carrier until around five months of age. Before this age, baby's neck muscles, spine and hips are not sufficiently developed. 

For how long can I carry my child in the baby carrier at a time?

You can carry your child in the baby carrier for as long as he or she is content. However, small children should not remain still in the same position for long periods of time. We therefore recommend that you always pay attention to your baby's signals and vary between using the baby carrier and, for example, a bouncer, pram and crib/cradle. 

Are the fabrics used in the baby carrier safe? Is it safe, for example, for my child to suck on the baby carrier?

Yes. All fabrics in our baby carriers are tested and certified according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100, class 1 - the class for babies, which also has the most stringent requirements. The Oeko-Tex label means that the fabrics are free from substances hazardous to health and allergens.

Many babies suck and drool on the baby carrier when they are being carried facing outwards. To avoid having to wash the baby carrier too often, you can use the BABYBJÖRN Bib for Baby Carrier or BABYBJÖRN Bib for Baby Carrier One. They are, of course, also certified in accordance with Oeko-Tex Standard 100, class 1.

What are the washing instructions for BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers?

You can machine wash all of our baby carriers in warm water (40˚C). Wash separately. Use gentle, non-bleach detergent and do not tumble dry the baby carrier.

My baby has colic. Can I carry him or her in BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers?

Yes. If your baby has temporary stomach problems, it can help to carry your baby in a baby carrier where the baby is in an upright position. It can also be calming for your baby to be carried and to feel the security of being close to mum or dad.  

Can my child sleep in the baby carrier?

Certainly, it is safe for your baby to sleep in our baby carriers. Your baby experiences closeness and warmth in the baby carrier, which makes him or her fall asleep feeling secure. Our baby carriers provide good support for baby's back and neck and that is why you can carry your sleeping baby for as long as he/she is content. However, small children should not remain still in the same position for long periods of time. We therefore recommend that you always pay attention to your baby's signals and vary between using the baby carrier and, for example, a bouncer, pram and crib.

Since the baby carrier's front section can be removed completely, you can easily lay down your sleeping baby without waking him or her up. 

Is the baby's position with respect to hips, legs and back anatomically correct in BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers?

Yes, the baby's hips, legs and spine are in the same position as when you hold your baby in your arms. According to paediatricians, an upright position that ensures free air passages, free movement for the legs and arms, and good support for the neck and head is the optimal position for a newborn. Our baby carriers meet all of these important orthopaedic requirements for small children. 

> Read more about what paediatricians have to say about our baby carriers.

Does a BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier suit parents of any particular size?

Our baby carriers are designed to be flexible enough to fit parents of all shapes and sizes, from size S to XL. We recommend that you visit a retailer in order to test the baby carrier and to determine which model fits you best. 

BABY CARRIER ORIGINAL

9 articles

When can I start using Baby Carrier Original?

The baby carrier is suitable for use from birth, as long as your child weighs at least 3.5 kg. The leg straps should always be used when your child weighs between 3.5 kg and 4.5 kg. 

How do I adjust the headrest on Baby Carrier Original?

All BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers have a headrest that should be used until the baby's neck muscles are strong enough to hold his/her head up. Adjust the headrest by tightening or loosening the short side loops on the upper part of the baby carrier. Check that your child has space around the head to keep his/her air passages free.

What should I bear in mind when I set up Baby Carrier Original?

There are some rules of thumb which should be followed to achieve maximum comfort for both the baby and the parent:

1. Start by setting up the baby carrier to suit the baby's height. See the size instructions on the inside of the baby carrier and adjust using the adjustable double buckle.

2. Put the vest on and attach it to the front part of the baby carrier by locking the double buckle. It is securely locked when you hear a separate clicking sound for both the left and right side of the double buckle.

3. Don't forget that you can choose how high you carry your baby depending on how high you place the double buckle. You should carry your baby high enough for you to be able to kiss the baby's head.

4. Adjust the baby carrier's shoulder strap to fit your body size. The back cross should be on a level with the lower part of your shoulder blades for maximum carrying comfort. 

When should I use the leg straps?

The leg straps are intended to reduce the size of the leg holes for smaller babies. The Baby Carrier Original leg straps should be used when your child weighs between 3.5 kg and 4.5 kg. This may also vary somewhat depending on how much clothing your baby is wearing. Always make sure that the leg straps are not on too tightly around baby's legs.

How do I adjust my Baby Carrier Original to fit my growing child?

All BABYBJÖRN baby carriers can be adjusted regularly so as to fit your growing child. There is a size adjuster on the inside of the lower part of the baby carrier's front section. Use the double buckle to adjust the baby carrier to match your child's height.

What material is used in Baby Carrier Original?

Baby Carrier Original is available in two fabric collections: cotton and mesh fabric.

The fabric in the cotton collection consists of 100% cotton.

The fabric in the mesh fabric collection consists of 100% polyester. It is an airy mesh fabric that is breathable and transports heat and moisture away from you and your baby. The fabric is specially made for BABYBJÖRN.

All fabrics used in this product are gentle against your child’s skin and safe to chew or suck on. They have been tested and approved in accordance with Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Class I for baby products. This means that the textiles are free from health-hazardous substances and allergens. That’s important to us!

Can I breastfeed in my Baby Carrier Original?

Yes, you can. Without unbuttoning any buckles, let one shoulder strap slide down from the shoulder. You may need to loosen the strap slightly to be able to lean your baby's head to the side. We recommend that you always sit down while you breastfeed in the baby carrier.

I have a baby carrier called Baby Carrier Air, but I can no longer find it in your assortment. Is it not for sale anymore?

It is, but we changed the name of Baby Carrier Air to Baby Carrier Original, Mesh.

BABY CARRIER MIRACLE

5 articles

When can I start using Baby Carrier Miracle?

Baby Carrier Miracle is fine to use from birth as long as your baby weighs at least 3.5 kg. Baby Carrier Miracle has been developed together with paediatricians to ensure that newborns get the best conceivable support for their entire body. 

What should I have in mind when I set up Baby Carrier Miracle?

To maximise comfort for both baby and parent:

1. Begin by setting up the baby carrier to fit your baby's size (height). See the size instructions on the inside of the baby carrier for the right setting.

2. Put the vest on and attach it to the front part of the baby carrier by locking the double buckle. It is securely locked when you hear a separate clicking sound for the left and right sliding buckle clips.  


3. Don't forget that you can determine how high to carry your baby by adjusting the height of the relief belt. Tiny babies are often carried higher up than babies that are a little bit older, but pay attention to your baby's needs and what you yourself find most comfortable.

How do I adjust my Baby Carrier Miracle to fit my growing baby?

Baby Carrier Miracle can be adjusted easily as your baby grows. There are adjustment instructions and a sliding buckle on the inside of the baby carrier's front piece. Adjust the buckle to fit your baby's height. The height setting is approximate. Hold the buckle flat. You may need to put some effort into it because, for safety reasons, the buckle is designed in such a way that it will not move too easily.

Can I carry my baby facing forward in the BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier Miracle?

Yes, from five months of age, it is fine to fold down the headrest and carry your baby facing forwards in the Baby Carrier Miracle. Prior to this age, baby's neck muscles, spine and hips are not sufficiently developed and you should therefore carry your baby facing inwards, toward you. 

When should I use the leg straps?

The leg straps are intended to reduce the size of the leg holes for smaller babies. The Baby Carrier Miracle leg straps should be used when your baby weighs between 3.5 kg and 4.5 kg. This may also vary somewhat depending on how much clothing your baby is wearing. Always make sure that the leg straps are not on too tightly around baby's legs.

BABY CARRIER ONE

11 articles

What is the difference between Baby Carrier One and other BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers?

The biggest difference is that you can carry your child on your back with Baby Carrier One, which you can't do with any of our other baby carriers. Your child must be at least 12 months old before you carry him or her on your back. You can use Baby Carrier One from birth (at least 3.5 kg and 53 cm) up to around 3 years (max. 15 kg or 100 cm). 

How do I put on Baby Carrier One?

The baby carrier is delivered in the upper height position, which is for newborns. If your baby is taller than 68 cm, you should switch to the lower height level for babies.

1. Put on the baby carrier over your head, like you would a shirt.
2. Place the back yoke under the shoulder blade and then attach the waist belt to the back.
3. Loosen the shoulder strap and unbutton the headrest on both sides, as well as the safety lock on one side. 

4. Place your child in the baby carrier. Once he or she is in place and you have locked the safety lock, buttoned up the headrest and, if applicable, the leg straps, you can adjust the shoulder strap and waist belt (so that it is comfortable for you and your baby).

When can I start carrying my baby facing outwards in Baby Carrier One?

We recommend that you carry your baby facing inwards until he or she is at least 5 months old. Baby's neck, back and hips will then be sufficiently developed for you to be able to carry him or her facing outwards. Don't forget to always use the normal leg position when you are carrying your baby facing outwards.

At this age, most babies think it is fun to get to see the exciting world with their back safely resting against mummy or daddy's chest.   

When can I start carrying my baby on my back in Baby Carrier One?

Once your baby is 12 months old, he or she is big enough to be carried on your back in Baby Carrier One.

How do I start carrying my baby on my back in Baby Carrier One?

1. First, put the baby carrier on your belly, as usual. Your baby should be facing you and sitting in the wide leg position. Loosen both shoulder straps.

2. Slip one of your arms up under the shoulder strap and the other arm down under the lower part of the shoulder strap.
The shoulder pad should now form a closed loop around the body. 

3. Get a grip on your baby from underneath and turn him or her around onto your back under your raised arm.

4. Put the shoulder strap back in place and place the back yoke where it feels comfortable.

5. Finally, tighten the waist belt and the shoulder strap.

For how long can I use Baby Carrier One?

You can use Baby Carrier One from birth (at least 3.5 kg and 53 cm) up to around 3 years (max. 15 kg or 100 cm).

When do I use the normal and wide leg position?

Your newborn should always be carried facing inwards with the normal leg position. In addition, the normal leg position should always be used when carrying your baby facing outwards. 

For bigger babies carried facing inwards, you can either use the normal or wide leg position. The wide leg position should always be used when carrying baby on your back.

Switch between the normal and wide leg positions by opening or closing the zip on both sides.

How do I wash my Baby Carrier One?

The baby carrier is machine washable in warm water (40°C). Wash separately. Please use an environmentally-friendly and gentle, bleach-free detergent. Do not tumble dry the baby carrier. Please use laundry bags.

What accessories are available for Baby Carrier One?

There is a handy bib that protects the baby carrier and is easy to wash.

How do I use the leg straps on the BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier One?

The leg straps should be used when your baby weighs between 3.5 kg and 4.5 kg. Fasten the loops on the vest onto the large buttons at the front of the baby carrier.

How do I adjust the BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier One to fit my growing child?

For newborns, you should use the upper height position for the first few months. Once your child is 68 cm long (around 4 months), you can easily change to the lower height position by using the zip.

The head support should be used until the child’s neck muscles are strong enough to hold the head up properly.

BOUNCER BALANCE SOFT

11 articles

When can I begin using the Bouncer Balance Soft for my baby?

The bouncer can be used by newborns (3.5 kg) until they weigh 13 kg (at approx. two years old). Until your baby is able to sit unassisted, the baby side should be used and the safety harness should always be buttoned up. Once your child can walk unaided, the chair side can be used as a comfortable chair.

When do I use the baby side and when do I use the chair side on my Bouncer Balance Soft?

The bouncer has two sides.

The baby side is designed for use by newborns, until they can sit unaided. The baby side is designed for tiny babies and has a safety harness that should always be buttoned up. The safety harness has two different sets of buttons so that you can adjust the size to fit your baby. 

Once your child can walk and sit unaided, turn the fabric around and use the chair side. The bouncer can then be used as a chair for your child. The safety harness cannot be fastened when using the chair side as, by this stage, your child will no longer need restraining.

How does the Bouncer Balance Soft work for my child?

Your child's smallest movements are turned into soft, soothing rocking in the bouncer. Babies practice their coordination and have fun at the same time. When your child is big enough and can walk unaided, turn the fabric around and use the bouncer as a high chair. The bouncer can be used for babies until they weigh 28 lbs/13 kg. Batteries are not required for our bouncers.

For how long can my child sit in the bouncer at a time?

You can let your child sit in the bouncer for as long as he or she is content. Your child can also sleep for short periods of time in the bouncer if he or she is comfortable doing so. We recommend that you use the lowest position or the middle position to give your child maximum sleeping comfort. However, small children should not sit or lay still in the same position for long periods of time. Therefore, we recommend that you pay attention to your child's needs and switch between using the bouncer and, for example, a baby carrier, your arms, a pram or a crib. You should always use the baby side with the safety harness fastened for small children who cannot sit unaided.

The bouncer has three positions, which one fits my child?

The lowest position (sleep) is used for newborns. The baby lies comfortably with optimum support for the body and can, at the same time, have eye contact with the parents. Use the baby side and always fasten the safety harness. The maximum weight is 7 kg.

You can begin to use the middle position (rest) once your child can easily hold his/her back and head upright in this position. The baby side should be used here, with the safety harness fastened.  The maximum weight is 9 kg.

You can begin to use the highest position (play) once your child can easily hold his/her back and head upright in this position. Until your child can sit unaided, use the baby side and always fasten the safety harness. The maximum weight is 9 kg.

When your child can walk and sit unaided, you no longer need to strap them in. Instead, turn the fabric around and use the chair side. For the chair side, we recommend the following:

Lowest position (sleep) up to 7 kg.

Medium position (rest) up to 10 kg.

Highest position (play) up to 13 kg.

Transport mode – when the bouncer is not being used, it can be folded up into a compact transport mode and it is then easy to pack up or put away.

How do I change the position of my Bouncer Balance Soft?

Lift the positioner and move it into the desired position, at the same time as you lift the backrest with your other hand. To fold up the Bouncer Balance Soft into transport mode, the positioner must be set to position A or B. Pull back the red safety latch and set the positioner to transport mode, D. 

From what material is the fabric seat of my Bouncer Balance Soft made?

The Bouncer Balance Soft is available in three fabric collections:

Cotton: cotton 
Mesh: polyester
Organic: organically grown cotton

All fabrics used in this product are gentle against your child’s skin and safe to chew or suck on. They have been tested and approved in accordance with Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Class I for baby products. This means that the textiles are free from health-hazardous substances and allergens. That’s important to us!

How do I wash the fabric in Bouncer Balance Soft?

The fabric is easy to remove and should be washed separately in warm water (40˚C). Please use a gentle, bleach-free detergent. Do not tumble dry and never iron the fabric, because this will cause the stuffing to be flattened.

What makes the Bouncer Balance Soft ergonomic?

The bouncer has a soft shape that adapts to your child's body. Your child's weight is distributed evenly across the fabric seat, which provides good support for his/her head and back. All of this gives an ergonomic reclining and sitting position for your child.

What distinguishes the Bouncer Balance Soft from the previous model, BABYBJÖRN Bouncer Balance?

The baby side is sewn as a cosy "nest" for your little baby. The safety harness is padded and folded over to be extra soft, since many babies like holding its edges. The safety harness is now fastened so it won't come off and it has two different sets of buttons so that you can adjust the size to fit your child. The frame has also been given a more-rounded shape.

The new model has two sides – a baby side and a chair side. The baby side is used by newborns until they can sit unaided. Once your child can walk and sit unaided, turn the fabric around and use the chair side.

Does the fabric seat from older BABYBJÖRN Bouncer models fit Bouncer Balance Soft too?

No, they don't fit very well. The fabric seat for the past Bouncer Balance model does not fit the Bouncer Balance Soft optimally. The fabric seat for the older Bouncer 1-2-3 cannot be put on the frame of the Bouncer Balance Soft.

TRAVEL COT LIGHT

9 articles

What is the difference between the past versions of the Travel Cot Light and the new one with mesh fabric?

The cot itself is basically the same – it is still a travel cot that is easy to take with you and easy to set up and fold away. However, the material is new; the travel cot now has mesh fabric all the way down to the floor around the sides. The reason is to make it easier for you to keep an eye on your child in the travel cot. Since the product standard has changed, we have also added a new fastening device to the mattress.

Is there a maximum weight for the Travel Cot Light?

We have not listed a recommended maximum weight for the BABYBJÖRN Travel Cot Light. The fact of the matter is that the unique design even makes it possible for you to get into the travel cot yourself when laying down or picking up your child.

The length of time that you can use the BABYBJÖRN Travel Cot Light is very individual and varies from child to child. The age limit has nothing to do with weight. It is more about how likely children are to "escape" or try to climb in and out of the travel cot. We recommend that you stop using the BABYBJÖRN Travel Cot Light when your child begins trying to climb out of it.

How do I wash the Travel Cot Light?

You can easily remove the mattress cover by opening the zip on one of the short sides. Machine wash the mattress cover separately in hot water. Use a gentle, bleach-free detergent. Do not tumble dry.

It is also easy to remove the fabric from the travel cot by opening the four zips around the frame. Machine wash the fabric separately in warm water. Use a gentle, bleach-free detergent. Do not tumble dry any of the parts.

The mattress itself is too large to be machine-washed. You can wash it gently by hand and rinse it off as needed.

How do I set up the BABYBJÖRN Travel Cot Light?

You can quickly set up the BABYBJÖRN  Travel Cot Light with one simple step. Take the travel cot out of the storage bag. Hold on to the short sides so that the legs point down towards the floor and open it up in one movement. The legs fold out by themselves, but make sure that all four are in the correct position.

Please note: Put the mattress in the travel cot and fasten it to the bottom by pulling the red loops through the holes in each corner and fasten them to the red hooks. 

Do I have to fasten the mattress to the red hooks?

We recommend that you use the hooks to maximise safety.

How do I fold up the BABYBJÖRN Travel Cot Light?

First, detach the mattress from the hooks. Fold up the mattress and place it in the storage bag. Fold one leg at a time and be careful to pull out the leg before you fold it in. Fold up the cot in the middle and place the cot in the bag. 

What are the measurements of the BABYBJÖRN Travel Cot Light and how much does it weigh?

The BABYBJÖRN Travel Cot Light weighs just 6 kg, which makes it easy to take with you on both shorter and longer trips.

Its measurements are as follows:
Mattress: 60x105x3 cm

The frame's measurements are (floor space needed is): 82x112 cm

Folded: 60x49x14 cm

Unfolded height: 64 cm

From what age can my child use the BABYBJÖRN Travel Cot Light?

The BABYBJÖRN Travel Cot Light has been designed for use from birth up to about three years. There is no weight limit, given that the mattress rests directly on the floor. The length of time for which you can use the travel cot varies from child to child.

Some children can use the BABYBJÖRN Travel Cot Light even after having reached the age of three. Others are more likely to escape and can't use it for as long. When your child tries to climb out of the travel cot, it is time to stop using it, so pay attention to whether he or she begins trying to get out of it.

Is the material in the travel cot safe for my baby?

Yes. All fabrics close to your child are gentle against your child’s skin and safe to chew or suck on. They have been tested and approved in accordance with Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Class I for baby products. This means that the textiles are free from health-hazardous substances and allergens. That’s important to us!

FITTED SHEET FOR TRAVEL COT LIGHT

3 articles

How do I wash the fitted sheet?

The fitted sheet can be easily removed and washed in the machine (hot, 60°C).

From what material is the fitted sheet made?

It is made from soft, organic cotton.

All fabrics used in this product are gentle against your child’s skin and safe to chew or suck on. They have been tested and approved in accordance with Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Class I for baby products. This means that the textiles are free from health-hazardous substances and allergens. That’s important to us!

Can I use other sheets in the BABYBJÖRN Travel Cot Light?

You can, of course, use other sheets, but the BABYBJÖRN Fitted Sheet for Travel Crib Light is specially designed to fit the travel cot. It is fitted to the dimensions of the mattress and this ensures that the sheet lies flat and does not slide around. The elastic edges also make it easier when making the bed. The sheet has been certified according to Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, Class 1, meaning that it is guaranteed to be free from health-hazardous substances. The hypoallergenic fabric is safe for your child’s sensitive skin. 

CRADLE

14 articles

Why should I choose BABYBJÖRN Cradle instead of a traditional cradle?

When you choose BABYBJÖRN Cradle you get a cradle with a unique rocking action that cannot get stuck in any position. It is lightweight and easy to move around from room to room. Your baby can breathe through the airy mesh fabric and it is easy for you to keep an eye on your baby, even when you are lying in bed. Assembly is very easy and the covering can be washed.

When can I begin using the cradle for my baby?

The cradle can be used by a newborn baby until he or she can sit unaided (approx. 6 months) or weighs 8 kg. 

How do I assemble the cradle?

The BABYBJÖRN Cradle is easy to assemble. Use the two screws and the Allen key that are included and follow the instructions in the Owner’s Manual. Assembly only takes a few minutes. The Allen key is of a standard type. 

How do I wash the cradle?

The cradle’s outer fabric is easy to remove by opening three zips. Machine wash the fabric separately in warm water (40°C). The mattress is machine washable in hot water (60°C). You can either remove the mattress fabric or leave it on during washing. 

Please use a gentle, bleach-free detergent. Do not tumble dry. The cradle framework and other details can be wiped using a cloth and gentle, all-purpose cleaner.

What kind of mattress does the cradle have?

The mattress in BABYBJÖRN Cradle complies with existing mattress standards and has been developed in consultation with paediatricians. A thin mattress is safer than a thicker one. Please note: Only use the mattress that comes with this product. There is also an organic cotton sheet, tailored to fit the mattress, which can be bought as an accessory: the BABYBJÖRN Fitted Sheet for Cradle.

Why is the cradle made out of mesh fabric?

Mesh fabric has two major advantages. The first is that your baby can breathe through it if your baby's face is very close to it. The second is that you can see through the fabric, which makes it easy to keep an eye on your sleeping baby.

What is special about the rocking action of the BABYBJÖRN Cradle?

The movement is similar to that of a pram with spring suspension. The cradle is easy to rock in all directions. You can rock the cradle with gentle hand or foot movements.

The cradle is set in motion by your baby’s movements and a baby who wakes up may lull themselves back to sleep. Some sleep experts claim that children do not sleep as deeply when they are in motion. But the cradle stops rocking once your baby falls asleep, so he or she does not get accustomed to constant movement while asleep.

In what way is the BABYBJÖRN Cradle safe?

The cradle has been developed in consultation with experts, including American doctor and child safety expert Mark Brandenburg. Dr Brandenburg is convinced that the BABYBJÖRN Cradle does not have any of the risks commonly associated with cradles. In his book “Child Safe”, he writes:

”Injury occurs when a baby rolls so far to one side that the cradle fails to rock back in the other direction. If the cradle becomes angled to a degree that prevents an infant from moving off the railings, pressure against her chest can become great enough to prevent breathing.” 

Dr Brandenburg contends that cradles can get stuck at an angle that can be dangerous for the baby. But he confirms that there is no risk of this happening with the BABYBJÖRN Cradle, because it stands firmly on the floor and does not rock in the traditional way and so cannot get stuck in one position. 

In addition, all sides of the cradle are made of a mesh fabric that your baby can breathe through, even if your baby’s face is very close to the side of the cradle.

What are the cradle's measurements?

The cradle weighs only 6 kg.

Height/length/width in transport mode: 13x79x58 cm


Height/length/width unfolded/standing: 65x79x58 cm


Mattress measurements: 36x72 cm

What material is the cradle made out of?

Mattress cover: 100% cotton 
Mattress filling: 100% polyether 
Fabric around cradle: 100% polyester
 Legs: Wood (beech) and steel, feet are made out of TPE plastic
 Canopy: 100% polyester 

All fabrics used in this product are gentle against your child’s skin and safe to chew or suck on. They have been tested and approved in accordance with Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 Class I for baby products. This means that the textiles are free from health-hazardous substances and allergens. That’s important to us!

Why is the BABYBJÖRN Cradle so small?

The compact size of our cradle makes it easy to move, as well as being snug and cosy for your baby, just like being in Mummy’s tummy.

Babies old enough to sit unaided should not be using a cradle – they can start to climb and even fall out of the cradle. That is why we have made our cradle small – your baby should grow out of it when it is time to move on to a larger bed.

"I have seen another BABYBJÖRN crib. How does it differ from the BABYBJÖRN Cradle?"

BABYBJÖRN used to sell an earlier version of the BABYBJÖRN Cradle called Bassinet. BABYBJÖRN Cradle is a modified version with a number of improvements, which we also sell at a lower price than its predecessor. The basic design is unchanged. 

How do I use the BABYBJÖRN Canopy for Cradle?

The canopy is an accessory for BABYBJÖRN Cradle which is sold separately. It provides a cosy shelter for your baby. The canopy can also be used as a mosquito and insect net, since you can wrap it all the way around the cradle. 

It is easy to attach the canopy to the cradle by clipping it to the edge – no tools are needed.

The canopy fabric is machine washable in warm water (40°C). Please use a gentle, bleach-free detergent. Do not tumble dry.

HIGH CHAIR

11 articles

When can my child start using the BABYBJÖRN High Chair?

You can start using the BABYBJÖRN High Chair as your child's first chair when your child is at least six months old and can sit unaided.

How does the high chair's openable table work?

The openable safety table serves as a safety lock and should be close to the child's body to make it harder for them to stand up. When the table is closed, you can adjust the safety table in different positions by pushing the red adjustment button on the underside of the safety table.

For how long can my child use the high chair?

The high chair can be used for as long as your child has room to sit in the chair and you can close the safety table. Children often fit in the chair up to about three years or 38 in/95 cm, but it is of course highly individual since children grow at different paces. The high chair is ergonomically shaped and has a curved back to fit children's bodies optimally.

Important! The safety table should be close to the child's body, which makes it harder for him or her to stand up.

What is the maximum weight for sitting in the high chair?

There is no maximum weight for our high chair. It can bear your child's weight for as long as your child has room to sit in the chair.

How do I adjust the high chair to fit my child?

You can move the safety table into different positions by pushing the red adjustment button on the underside of the table and simultaneously pushing the table closer to, or away from, your child.

Important! The safety table should be close to your child's body to make it harder for him or her to stand up.

How do I open/close the safety table so that I can lift out/place my child in the seat?

To open and close the safety table, first push in the red safety lock on the black handle and then turn the handle to the side. Don't forget to always hold your child steady when placing him/her in and lifting him/her out. 

Important! Don't forget that the safety table should always be in the locked position when your child is sitting in the high chair. 

Is your child sitting safely in the BABYBJÖRN High Chair?

The high chair's safety table should be fixed close to the child to make it harder for him or her to stand up in the chair. The child-proof two-step lock prevents children from opening and closing the high chair and from folding it up into transport mode. 

Important! Never leave your child unattended in the High Chair.

How do I fold up the high chair into transport mode?

First, fold up the safety table against the chair support by holding in the red adjustment button. Then pull the black fold locks over the red adjustment button and fold up the safety table. Push in the leg locks and then push the legs together.

How do I clean the high chair?

We recommend drying it off with a damp cloth. The removable tray can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher.

From what material is the high chair made?

The BABYBJÖRN High Chair is made from plastic and coated steel.

The tray is made from Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS). It is of food-grade quality and meets plastic safety requirements in both Europe (EEC) and the USA (FDA).

BABY PLATE AND SPOON

5 articles

My plate is marked #7 on the underside, what does this mean?

The number on the underside of the plate tells you which plastics were used in production. The types of plastic are divided into seven different classes, with classes 1-6 standing for certain specific plastics (see below). Class 7, however, refers to "other plastics", meaning that this product is made from plastics other than those specified in classes 1 to 6.

What makes the BABYBJÖRN Plate and Spoon easier to eat with than other plates and spoons?

The plate's three-leafed clover shape makes it easier for babies to scoop up the food instead of chasing it around on the plate. The rubber ring on the base of the plate makes it steadier on the table. The rounding of the edges makes it difficult for small hands to grip the plate and throw it away.

The spoon's short handle is easy for small hands to grip and fits just as well in both the right hand and the left hand. The bowl of the spoon is shaped like the plate and makes it easier for babies to scoop up the food onto the spoon.

Can I wash the Plate and Spoon in the dishwasher?

Yes, it is fine to wash both the plate and the spoon in the dishwasher. Avoid, however, placing them close to the dishwasher's heating element.

Can I heat food on the plate in a microwave?

Yes, on a low heat (max. 90°C). Heating on low power is gentler on the plate and makes it last longer than heating it on high power. We recommend only heating food, and not using the microwave to cook or boil food.

Which plastics are used in the plate?

The edges of the spoon and the plate are made from polypropylene (PP) and the rubber ring on the base of the plate is made from thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). The inside of the plate is made from Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS).

The plastic is of food-grade quality and meets plastic safety requirements in both Europe (EEC) and the USA (FDA). The product is PVC-free and does not contain bisphenol A, phthalates, cadmium, lead or bromine. The plastic is also recyclable.

BABY CUP

9 articles

When can my child start using the BABYBJÖRN Baby Cup?

Your child can start using the cup from around 8 months as his/her first cup (child development is, however, individual and the age can therefore vary somewhat). The cup's grip-friendly shape and surface make it easy for small hands to lift and hold, while a large foot with a rubber ring on the base makes the cup stable and hard to knock over. 

TIP: An adult can hold the cup when feeding baby in the beginning and, when the baby begins to get interested and has the motor skills to hold the cup, it becomes natural for the baby to do it by him/herself. Baby will love experimenting in the beginning and, by filling with small amounts at a time, spills will become a natural part of learning.

From what material is the cup made?

The cup is made from polypropylene (PP) and thermoplastic elastomers (TPE).

The plastic is of food-grade quality and meets plastic safety requirements in both Europe (EEC) and the USA (FDA). The product is PVC-free and does not contain bisphenol A, phthalates, cadmium, lead or bromine. The plastic is also recyclable.

We at BABYBJÖRN want you to know that you have chosen a product that is both functional and safe. We are beginning to label our plastic products "BPA-free" so that you can rest assured.

Is the cup of food-grade quality?

Yes.

How much does the cup hold?

The cup holds 100 ml. It has a graduated scale that indicates 50 ml, 75 ml and 100 ml.

Can the cup be used in microwave ovens?

Yes, BABYBJÖRN Cup is perfect for use in a microwave oven, to warm food or beverages. However, don’t forget to stir; heating in a microwave can result in uneven temperatures. 

NOTE! Do not use heat sources other than a microwave oven.

HELPFUL HINT! The inside bottom of the cup is rounded to work with BABYBJÖRN Spoon, making it easy to reach and scoop up all the food.
