Close collaboration with doctors

Our product developers collaborate closely with pediatricians and medical experts throughout the entire development process – both in developing a completely new product and in refining an existing one.

For products to be used by sensitive newborns and small children (e.g. our baby carriers), we turn to medical specialists such as pediatric orthopedists and neonatal doctors. This enables us to always have expert approval for the various safety aspects of a product. Examples include making sure that the design is right for children's hips, that newborns have sufficient head support or that our user instructions are interpreted as intended. BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers are practical, ergonomically correct and satisfy baby's need for close contact, security and stimulation.

“With the front baby carrier design, baby faces parent during early months and remains physically close to mom or dad. The visual contact and bodily warmth of the parent help the baby adapt to life outside the womb. BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers help position the baby comfortably and at the same time provide the proper support for the infant's spine and hips."

“BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers can be used from birth. Indeed, because the first few weeks of life are critical to an infant’s development, they are designed to provide proper support for a newborn’s head, neck, spine and hips. They support the newborn in the inward facing position for close, tummy-to-tummy contact with mom or dad, and the built-in head support provides important head and neck stabilization. BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers also hold babies’ hips in the optimal position — the abducted position (or spread legs)."

"Support for the neck, head and back as well as being able to move their legs and hips freely is important for newborns. BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers meet these important criteria."

"From the very beginning, BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers have been developed in close collaboration with pediatricians specialized in the development of newborns and small children. They are practical, ergonomically correct and satisfy baby's need for close contact, security and stimulation."

Dr Garcia Fontecha

Pediatric Orthopedic Specialist at Hospital Vall D’Hebron in Barcelona. 

"When the newborn baby is placed in a BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier, the spine adopts the correct C shaped posture and mom and dad can also keep an eye on the baby and attend to his or her needs. The child's hips are also in a comfortable position, which favors the correct development of the hips during the first few months of the child´s life. The design of BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers also provides free movement of all the leg joints, which further stimulates the development of the joints."

"BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers provide the ideal leg position for newborns and small children. The combination of the legs' angle to the body and their outward rotation benefits the maturing of the hip joint. When used correctly, it benefits both children and parents, and is strongly recommended from an orthopedic point of view."
