worth every penny
I had heard great things about the baby bjorn with the lumbar support, and decided to splurge on the Synergy model, as the weather can be quite warm in NC anytime from March to October. My daughter is tiny---110 pounds at most before her pregnancy. She was able to comfortably carry her four week old son to a college football game and wear the bjorn synergy for several hours. The baby was content, and slept through the game, including cheering, fireworks, and multiple rounds of "the wave." I wish these had been around when my children were small. We had a baby carrier, but it hurt my back to use it.
