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.

Are the newer baby bjorns really hip healthy?

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.

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