As part of our efforts to bring you the 12 best baby carriers for dads, we hear from Aurelien Mottier, a London based dad who tried the Je Porte Mon Bebe PhysioCarrier with his adorable little boy, Eden, not just in one country, but in two!
As a busy dad, I really value the things that Eden and I can do together at the weekend or on trips away, and having a baby carrier is very important in that regard. When I was asked about a JPMBB PhysioCarrier Review I jumped at the chance…not just to try it, but to take it with us to Korea and Cyprus!
1. First impressions
Ok, so first things first, the JPMBB is very very stylish! It’s black and discreet, does not have a big brand logo on it. Looks good all round and is made of good quality material. It’s super breathable, and after I tried it for my own baby and for a few weeks it did confirm how very solid and durable it is. Good quality build is a good start.
2. Multiple Carrying Positions Are Great
The Je Porte Mon Bebe PhysioCarrier has three carrying positions:
Front Carry Position
Back Carry Position
Side Carry Position
3. How Quick Was It To Get On
Not that quick actually. I must admit that past the stylish look and quality materials, this is not the easiest design to pick up intuitively, and there are a few things to consider to get the carrier on properly.
The part I struggle the most with was is adjusting the cross-strap at the back. Maybe I am not flexible enough, but I found it quite challenging. Over-time my solution was to preadjust it and get the carrier on in a different way than describe on the instructions.
Once I got the hang of it though, and familiarized myself with the design it became easy to put on and off, but it takes practice!

5. Overall Thoughts / Pros & Cons
I would say it’s the most comfortable carrier I ever tried. The other ones I have tried usually end up putting to much strain on your upper back and lower back (I am comparing with BabyBjorn – I have a couple of those). From a dad stand point, it is very comfortable and very well padded, so comfortable on the shoulders.
I would give is 4.5 / 5
