Baby Bjorn Synergy Review:

Baby Bjorn Synergy - White - Forward Facing Out CarryThe Baby Bjorn Synergy is simply a nice improvement from the original. Basically, if you combine the Baby Bjorn Active, with the Baby Bjorn Air, you get the Synergy.

The lightweight mesh definitely makes a difference in terms of breath-ability, but even though they’ve added increased lumbar support, when baby get’s older and heavier the weight still rides on your shoulders and neck. It’s great for a newborn, but after about 15 pounds, it gets uncomfortable for longer wear.

I also don’t like the listing price or the fact that there’s not very many color options. It is however, extremely comfortable for your precious little cargo. If you’re seriously considering the Original Baby Bjorn, I would recommend this one over that, but only if you can find one on sale. It’s currently listed at Amazon for 169.99, which is not a bad deal. Oh and FYI, it’s listed as a Baby Bjorn Active, Mesh on Amazon, but it’s the same as the Synergy.

Personally, I think there are better options out there when it comes to comfort for the wearer, especially for the price, but if you really have your heart set on a Baby Bjorn, check out the Miracle.

Recap – The Good & The Bad

The Good
  • Better lumbar support and wider straps than the original
  • Breathable mesh material that keeps you cool
  • The front of the carrier can be completely removed, enabling you to lay you’re sleeping baby down without too much jostling
  • Folds compactly into carrying pouch
The Bad
  • Only goes up to 26 pounds
  • Baby’s weight is still on your shoulders, not comfortable for long periods of time.
  • The price is steep
