    Oh, I thought you meant just all baby carriers in general. Ive heard the Ergo is better for everyone.

    Gee, yeah maybe, if you carry the baby around in it for hours at a time in the one position..... It's not disimilar to carrying baby around on the hip, as with any carrier. All that 'it's bad for their hips' is rubbish!I

    t's perfectly comportable for bub and they tuck their legs up anyway when they're that little.

    I loved mine for quick trips out when I needed my arms... because it held him in a super comfy position like he would have been in if I was holding him on my hip except he was on my front. I couldn't have lived without it (used it from birth - he was 4.2 kg born!) and as a petit single Mum, it was a life saver, especially doing the grocery shopping!

    Eta think about how you carry a baby, you don't do it by the crotch you carry baby with their legs froggied and their bum lower than their knees (think about how you would carry a baby on your hip) this is a natural position for bub to be in. A carrier should mimic that.

    My DD was 10 weeks I think when she was diagnosed with silent reflux it was a godsend.

    If it was that bad for babies they would not be allowed to sell it surely. Everything in moderation. It did hurt MY back though as she got heavier.

    I have both BB and Ergo

    I have the active one and used when bub was about 2 weeks. I had a c-section and had no dramas. I love it and still use it with my 10.5kg 11 month old baby girl.

    I don't think that's a good rule of thumb eg. cot bumpers, cot pillows, soft mattresses, the list goes on.

    Just sharing the info I found when I researched before having my first bub as I didn't know anything about them.
    I used the ergo all the time as I had a premmie who wouldn't sleep for more than 20 mins at a time for 8 months.

    There has been quite a bit of research done by physios and chiros backing up that the are not great as bub is hanging by the crotch instead of being supported under the bottom, as they would be of they were being carried.
    Disregarding it as rubbish is fine if that's what you have found, I'm just offering information that I have found.
