Features and benefits
Small, easy-to-use and super-soft baby carrier for newborns
Baby Carrier Mini is a small baby carrier that is easy to use for short babywearing sessions. It’s a lightweight version of the classic carrier, perfect for the early months when, like all newborns, your baby needs lots of closeness around the clock. Babywearing helps strengthen the bond with your little one, while you remain hands-free. You can easily unfasten the entire front section of the carrier to lift out your sleeping baby. Once your baby has grown a little, you can choose whether to use the facing-in or facing-out position. Your baby should be at least five months old before you use the facing-out position. The soft fabrics gently hug your baby’s back, legs and hips, and provide good support. You can check your newborn’s position and the natural curve of their back with your hands through the fabric.

What’s the difference between Baby Carrier Original and Baby Carrier Mini?
- Wider seat area. The seat area of Baby Carrier Mini is 4 in/10 cm wider at its widest part than the seat area of Baby Carrier Original. This means that Baby Carrier Mini gives better support to a newborn’s legs and hips in the facing-in position.
- New unique baby carrier materials. Baby Carrier Mini comes in three incredibly soft materials: Cotton, 3D Mesh and our new 3D Jersey. Our mesh and jersey materials are super-soft, ensure a good airflow, and are cool and comfy when you’re babywearing. Our baby carrier in satin-woven cotton is cooler, lighter and slightly more flexible around the seat area than earlier versions of our cotton baby carriers.
