  Joshi rated the box 5 stars A few months ago I shared with you about “Why I’d Never Put My Baby In A BabyBjorn Carrier.”  My site traffic went through the roof.  Yes, the title was a bit provocative, but I really wanted to get people talking about optimal positioning when baby-wearing.  And it worked.  Parents who read my post contacted BabyBjorn – then BabyBjorn contacted me.  They said that the new carrier they were just launching, the Baby Carrier...
