Dangerous Baby Carriers: Yet Another Thing Moms Need to Worry About

It’s hard believe something like a baby carrier could potentially be dangerous for a child. The whole concept was to make things a little easier on mom by letting her keep the kid close, but also keep her hands free.

Even if your child wasn’t diagnosed with a serious hip problem until they were older (read: not an infant or toddler), you may still be able to take action.

  • Baby Bjorn™ Baby Carrier Original
  • Britax Baby Carrier
  • Budu Baby Carrier

International Hip Dysplasia Institute Recommends Against Certain Types of Baby Carriers

According to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, certain types of baby carriers, called narrow-based carriers, may interfere with healthy hip development in infants. Using these types of carriers, listed above, may be connected to serious hip injuries in children.

Some of the serious hip injuries connected to these baby carriers may include:

  • Arthritis of the Hip(s)
  • Avascular Necrosis
  • Developmental Dislocation of the Hip (DDH)
  • Hip Dislocation
  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Minor Laxity of the Hip(s) (Looseness)

Or any other kind of serious hip injury that required medical treatment.

If your child suffered a hip injury, taking legal action can not only help to protect other children, but it may provide valuable compensation to help you pay for life-changing treatment.
