American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win a BabyBjörn
Since they won the coveted title of favorite baby carrier in our American Baby Bests Awards, I looked forward to seeing the BabyBjörn folks this past week at the ABC trade show, a big industry event held this year in Louisville, KY. It’s always a treat to see all the colors and variations of the BabyBjörn in one place! Their new-for-2013 colors are shown here, raspberry and light blue.
Three things you may not know about BabyBjörn carriers: One, they’re named after their founder, Björn Jakobson, whose first product invention was a bouncer seat. (He moved on from there to baby carriers, which won him a lot more fame.) Two, Björn’s wife, Lillemor, is still the head designer. She and her husband have been running their company for more than 50 years now, so they are no spring chickens, but they’re as spirited as ever. (Check out this video fashion show about the history.) And finally, the BabyBjörn fabrics are Oeko-Tex certified, which is basically the European standard for “green.”
They’ll give away two of the brand-new BabyBjörn Original carriers, worth $80 and shown above. To be eligible, leave a comment below. (Note: Your comment may not show up right away, don’t panic!) Tell us where you wear your baby, or, if you’re pregnant, what you see yourself doing with the carrier. You can leave up to one comment a day, today through Wednesday, October 24. The official rules are all here. Goody luck!
