Is a baby bjorn like this worth $20? My cousin is seeking it. I want to buy it, but I don't want to spend $20 on junk lol.

No. It's s crotch dangler.  An Ergo or a boba might be a nice starter carrier. Zulily has ergos on sale often.


infantino makes a decent mei tai (sp) for cheap too.

I would say no, those are awful for baby's hips and can cause hip problems. I believe people refer to them as "crotch danglers".

I used one with Elle and actually loved it. But it was only comfy until she was like..9lbs (so 2/3 months) her hips are fine ;) I would never use it again. We have an ergo now

The people I used to nanny for wanted me to wear their son in one. It was awful! Lol. He was like 3 months at the time and around 14lbs after literally 5 minutes of wearing it my shoulders/back killed so bad I had to take it off! Nothing like my ergo :)

Oh well darn. She isn't selling any that you're mentioning. She does have this one, though. Does it look any better? Probably not lol.

Absolutely not. Spend $4.99 more and get an infantino mei tai.

The problem with the b'jorn, is it's not ergonomical and not comfortable for the baby or the wearer. Ergonomical carriers have the baby in a seated position and because of that distribute the weight a lot better and make it a lot more comfortable.

And they busted the myth that narrow based carriers (crotch danglers) cause hip issues. They can contribute to it, but only when the child is already prone for the issue.

Most people don't like the Bjorn because it is a "crotch dangler" but I posted a link on an easy way to fix it.  I know a lot of people that like it.  As for me I like my Ergo.  Mai Tais are great too.

That's cute. It's it ok for a newborn?

Yeah you just have to roll the bottom and use a receiving blanket to boost the babies bum up so they aren't completely covered by the carrier. Also if you scrunch the seat, when they get a tad older, they can have their legs out also. But in the beginning when the newborn is all curled up, legs in, froggied is best.
