What’s the Story?

What's the Story?

Last week Northern Mum shared a post about her daughter’s hip dysplasia here http://www.northernmum.com/2013/09/hip-dysplasia-why-we-should-burn-forward-facing-baby-carriers/ and talked about forward facing children’s carriers where little one is not knee to knee. I read some of the comments with interest, particularly those about little one’s not being able to see properly when facing in, and I wanted to share another option. My what’s the story features a soft structured carrier or ‘buckles’ carrier that allows for a baby on the back positioning, knee to knee, as you can see Jossy has a great view and the carrier suits from birth to toddler and beyond, and we’re both really comfy as you can see, two miles into a three mile walk with a 21lb 16 month old!

I don’t want to weigh in on the debate about carriers, but I do think people should do their own research, so I would recommend the TICKS carrying card http://slumber-roo.co.uk/downloads/TICKS.pdf and hip dysplasia resources http://www.hipdysplasia.org/developmental-dysplasia-of-the-hip/prevention/baby-carriers-seats-and-other-equipment/

One thought on “What’s the Story?

  1. I read a lot of Northern Mums posts – she’s done an incredible job to raise awareness of hip dysplasia. It’s been heartbreaking to see what her daughter (and the family) has had to endure. I’m no expert but it’s clear to see Jossy looks much better positioned than POD was as a baby in her carrier. You’re exactly right in that people need to do their own research to understand what the risks are and make an informed decision. Thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory
