CLOSE COLLABORATION WITH DOCTORS

Nära samarbete med läkare - BABYBJÖRN

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

For products which are to be used by sensitive newborns and small children (for example, our baby carriers), we turn to medical specialists in children’s orthopaedics 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.

You can read more about what medical experts have to say about our baby carriers below:

Dr Avroy A Fanaroff

University Hospitals Health Systems. Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital.

“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."

Division Chief, Pediatric Sports Medicine, Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital, Cleveland, Ohio.

“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 so as 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 mum or dad, and the built-in head support provides important head and neck stabilisation. BabyBjörn baby carriers also hold babies’ hips in the optimal position — the abducted position (or spread legs)."

Dr Göran Kendorf

Specialist in children’s orthopaedics since 1998. Works at the children’s orthopaedic clinics at Astrid Lindgren's Children's Hospital in Stockholm and at Aleris Specialist Care Centre in Järva, performing assessments involving all forms of children’s orthopaedics.

"Support for the neck, head and back, and the ability to move their legs and hips freely, are important for newborns. BabyBjörn baby carriers meet these important criteria."

"From the very beginning, BabyBjörn baby carriers have been developed in close collaboration with paediatricians specialised 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

Children’s Orthopaedic 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 mum 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 favours 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."

Former chief of medicine, Department of Children’s Orthopaedics in Olgahospital, Stuttgart. Former Chairman of the Deutschsprachige Vereinigung für Kinderorthopädie (German-Speaking Society for Children’s Orthopaedics and of the European Society for Orthopaedic Paediatrics).

"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 orthopaedic point of view."
