    Thanks for the link but yep I've read it all. This is why I don't usually express a view.

    Okay. I wasn't trying to argue with you just saying what I'd read is all as I said, if it suits your needs then go for it. I only raised it in response to the PP who said that they haven't been recalled therefore are perfectly safe- doesn't hurt to look at all angles etc

So just because it hasn't been recalled doesn't mean it's 100% safe.
    With bjorns, they are safe- just not optimal. They aren't comfortable for the wearer for very long and don't hold baby in the most comfy position. There is a simple way to make it more comfy for all though- http://www.fineandfairblog.com/2013/...carf-hack.html
    Thanks for the link. I've seen the new pricey versions of the bjorn with the waist strap; this is a great cheap hack! Just have to find a "manly" scarf for hubby.

    I'm always reluctant to express a view on carriers as I know a lot of people have strong views on the baby bjorn carriers. Just another view I guess.
    When I was expecting bub a couple years ago I wanted to know if all the abuse the bjorn was getting was warranted so I did a heap of research and found an article that said:
    ...there is no evidence of an increased risk of hip dysplasia from the use of carriers that do not hold a child in the spread-squat position. Over the past thirty years, millions of carriers have been sold that do not hold the baby in the spread/squat position, including carriers such as the Bjorn and Snugli. There is no indication of an increase in the incidents of hip dysplasia from the use of these carriers.
    But... I can't find the page anymore. There are though other people also wondering the same thing...
    Will the BabyBjorn endanger your infant’s health?

    (Short answer: no.)

    Sorry yeah I know you weren't I guess having had two kids now with dysplasia I have a bit of a stronger view about the bjorn, which I know isn't popular on BH. My last was in a correctio brace and the bjorn was a lifesaver when she was tiny. We wouldn't have coped without it.
