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."
