The history behind One

David Thalén, BabyBjörn's project manager in the development of the ergonomic Baby Carrier One, had the following to say about how the project progressed:

"When we started developing baby carriers 40 years ago, the most important thing was to be able to carry your child close to you. In recent years, however, the demand for carrying children over a longer time period has increased. Now, many parents want to continue carrying their children when they are a little bit older. When the weight in the baby carrier increases, so does the need for it to be comfortable for the parent.

We started off by performing an in-depth study into where the pressure, or the weight from the child, is the greatest for the parent. We looked at backpacks and other carrying systems and how they were developed. At the age of three, a child weighs about 15 kg. The option of carrying a child on the back is more or less a must for a parent when children become a little older."

Our challenges

What were the challenges when Baby Carrier One was being developed?

"Finding a safe way of getting children onto your back unassisted."

"We always use newborns as the basis when we develop baby carriers and it is important that a carrier can provide a tiny baby with enough support around the whole body, whilst also being suitable for larger children of up to three years old. During their first year, children often triple their weight and their centre of gravity shifts."

"We wanted it to fit parents of different shapes and sizes, as well as with different preferences and tastes."

"We also wanted it to be easy for parents to handle."

Intelligent and safe buckles

BabyBjörn's product developers explain why the buckles on baby carriers are important:

"The buckles are always a challenge. That's why we develop all buckles for our baby carriers, in-house. They need to be intuitive and safe. We look at how parents grip and use the buckles. Where the buckles are positioned on the carrier is also important. We spent a long time looking into exactly where on the carrier the best place for the front buckle was."

Tests crucial

The project manager behind Baby Carrier One, on the importance of testing and retesting:

"Our tests are of the utmost importance in the journey towards the final product. It is during the numerous tests that we conduct that we discover all of the areas that are in need of small, detailed fine-tuning. This is also why a development process takes several years for us. We spent around three years on Baby Carrier One. We tested several hundred different prototypes, together with around 200 test families, before we were satisfied with the results. All our rigorous testing enables us to feel completely secure with our new product when its launch-date arrives. This was also the case when we introduced our new ergonomic Baby Carrier One in 2013.
