All newborns are checked immediately after birth by a medical professional to make sure their hips are normally developed. Any problems are appropriately treated by doctors. Hip dysplasia cannot be caused by a baby carrier.
Our Baby Carriers are developed in collaboration with doctors who specialize in pediatric orthopedics to ensure that they provide well-adapted support for the baby’s hips, neck and back. A baby’s back is initially shaped like a C and gradually takes on an S-shape as we reach adulthood.
Almost everyone who works here at BabyBjörn has children, and we work closely with pediatric doctors when we develop our Baby Carriers. We also confer with midwives, safety experts from test institutes, and other specialists. Without their approval, we would not allow parents to use our Baby Carriers. To date, more than 30 million babies all over the world have been carried in a BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier.
