Why we're celebrating BabyBjörn

BabyBjorn is a heartwarming Swedish family business that strives to bring families with young children closer together. Their quality, timeless designs are focused on creating safe products and make daily life easier for everyone involved - enabling parents everywhere to cherish every moment spent together.

Concept of babywearing 

For generations, parents have a deep desire to be close with their babies. However when BabyBjörn unveiled their first baby carrier in 1973 - Close To Heart, the concept of carrying had been forgotten in Western society.

Thankfully by the 90’s, demand surged in line with their Original Carrier which sparked a renewed interest amongst families who began to recognise how important it is for developing strong relationships between parent or guardian and child.

Nowadays, BabyBjorn and their ever-growing community exists dedicated towards keeping this traditional practice alive - one where love grows as little ones are safely held near!

Benefits of closeness

From cuddles to hugs, skin-to-skin contact is more than just a sweet moment with your little one. Studies have shown that it can positively impact your baby's health in both the short and long term, from stabilsing their heart rate and breathing habits to improving oxygen uptake levels!

But even beyond all these tangible benefits - no studies are available on how meaningful such moments of physical connection can be for babies after birth.

Closeness between you and your baby, creating bonds through physical contact and beginning at any age and with either parent. From feeling the warmth of mum or dad’s embrace to hearing their calming voice as it eases little one's into sleep - this type of connection establishes an unbreakable bond that will last for years, a magical moment in time.
