Hands-Free but Not Style-Free

Hands-Free but Not Style-Free

As a new parent, you’ve often got your hands full — a pacifier tumbling out of someone’s mouth or playdate texts to manage. These are times when a Babybjörn Carrier Mini isn’t just a luxury but a necessity.

#

1. Camouflage your carrier in a classic, all-black look, or draw the eye outwards with bold, statement outerwear.

Fivestory founder, Claire Olshan, stumbled on this move by accident: “It was fashion week and my son wouldn’t go down for his nap, so I did what any desperate mom would do: I slapped him in his Babybjörn and took him to a fashion show. Lucky for me he slept through the whole thing.”

2. Use athleisure to help the carrier blend in.

Arielle Charnas, the founder of style blog Something Navy and mother of Esme, does it well here.

#

3. Pair the color of your carrier with some element of your look.

We love the way that Nicole Berrie, mom of two and the creator of the Bonberi food and wellness blog, wears her dusty pink carrier with florals. She’s a fan of the way it allows her mini to come along on errands: “The daily green juice run to my local requires both hands ... thank goodness for this new @babybjorn mini so little Sea can come along for the ride.”

4. Jeans and boots make for the perfect background.

As seen on Melisa Melling, mom of three and creator of lifestyle and motherhood blog Atherly Lane, who says: “I love wearing Jack in the Babybjörn carrier because it keeps him close to me and allows me to hold on to my other two kids at the same time. And Jack loves it – he falls right asleep.”
