So my rotten I mean darling brother bought me a Babybjorn carrier for Christmas. We've tried the moby, the ergo and the ring sling and Tru doesn't like any of them! He'll tolerate it for about 10 minutes then he wants OUT. He screams, arches his back making all kinds of "get me the H out lady" noise.
He's really liked the Bjorn the most. I've heard it called a crotch dangler, and that its bad for hips and development. I've also heard that babies should face in.
He looooves to face out though. We've tried the hip carry in the ergo and his foot turned purple (freaked!!) and we tried hip carry in the moby and its fine just a little unstable for my taste.
So I went to the Babybjorn website and found this FAQ page that made me feel so much better. Then I got to thinking...
This is the carrier website, of COURSE they're not going to say "Yup, this thing is bad, better not use it!". So I decided to seek further help and found the hip dysphasia website and they all but come out and say this ain't good for hips.
So I'm torn, I know millions of parents have used carriers like these and have no trouble, but what are the odds that I'm not jacking up T's hips?
sorry if I'm freaking fellow Bjorn wearers out there and you're cursing me.... As if you don't have enough to worry about.
He's just so much more relaxed in this carrier vs the sling, ergo and moby.
What to do? What to do?
