What are the fabric differences?
Fabrics are a huge part of BabyBjörn products because they want you to feel as close to your baby as possible.
The first fabric is 3D mesh which is a soft, flexible and breathable fabric that stays pleasantly cool for you and the baby. The 3D mesh is 100% polyester which also means it dries quickly after washing and it will also keep its shape no matter how many times you throw it in the washing machine (always essential). Lastly, it is a high-tech fabric with tactile qualities which enhances the closeness between you and your baby when wearing it. All four carriers come in the 3D mesh.
There is also 3D Jersey, which is a super soft fabric that hugs your little one in a stretchy, velvety material. The 3D jersey is made up of three layers, with the middle layer consisting of a fine, single-fibre thread. The different layers give the baby carrier stability while the fabric breathes and releases excess warmth making it super comfortable and cosy. The 3D Jersey consists of 80% polyester, 16% cotton and 4% elastane and you can get it with the Baby Carrier Mini.
Lastly, there is Cotton which is a comfy, smooth, flexible fabric. This comes in a satin weave or cotton blend. The satin-woven cotton is super-smooth and comfy with thin padding which makes the fabric feel lightweight and flexible. The baby Carrier Mini comes in satin-woven cotton.
The Cotton-blend is soft and flexible, made up of 60% cotton and 40% polyester it combines the good qualities for both. If you want a cotton-blend carrier, choose Baby Carrier One.
All the fabrics that your child will come into contact with have the requirements of OEKO-TEX Standard 100, Class 1 for baby products. OEKO-TEX is an independent testing and certification system for textiles and accessories.

The fabrics of the bouncers are similar to the carriers – you have a mesh, soft cotton, cotton jersey and 3D jersey option.
