    Default Are the newer baby bjorns really hip healthy?

    Asking for a friend. I wouldn't put my child in one as we have a family history of hip dysplasia.

    The new ones say hip healthy on them, just wondering if this is really the case? Still looks like a crotch dangler by the photos on the package?

    Anyone with experience please.

    I had mine through 4 babies and loved it. 2 of my kids had hip dysplasia and the ortho recommended we use a baby born.

    Up front I don't own one of the new ones, but I've had a look at the photos and I think they look better than the old ones. I'm a physio and a mum of one child who had hip dysplasia and if friends ask me I always recommend the ergobaby or wraps. I personally would never use a baby bjorn. That's just personal preference though.

    I tried an ergo with DS (my 3rd). I must be one of the few who just couldn't get the hang of it. And none of my kids liked back wearing so they outgrew it too quickly.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm a woven wrap mum all the way.

    @Sonja did the ortho recommend the bjorn while the babies were in the brace? Or all the time?

    They were always braced so there wasn't any other time.

    Ah that may be why they recommended a baby bjorn, the brace would have kept their hips at whatever angle they needed to be, but for a baby without a brace their angle may have been incorrect?

    It's very different person to person.. I tried a baby bjorn and just could not get comfortable it in.. My back ended up very sore!
    But in terms of hip health I like the position of the ergo. But like most things moderation is the key. If bub is only going to be in it an hour or so or less a day then I think any carrier is probably totally fine for their hips.

    I also didnt like the ergo much. I found the clip in the back so hard to do up

    I had a manduca and thought it was ace. Bubs legs are in a frog position.
