Does A Baby Bjorn Hurt Testicles

Does anyone know of research suggesting that front carriers like the Baby Bjorn crush baby boys' testicles? Because of the way the baby is held by the crotch, I am concerned whether these front carriers cause long-term damage.

yeah...I'm wondering the same thing too...maybe slings are a better way to go ? ...

unsure but guess it cant be that different to carrying a baby on your hip. i think nappies provide a certain amount of padding

 

Hi - May 24

Baby Bjorn has had far too many recalls for their products so I would shy away from them anyway. I did get a Snugli, but I think the wrap maybe be a better choice. You can use them longer, the real Maya wraps have been tested up to 100lbs. Just the other day I saw a 3 year old in one with her dad. Now to the nut crushing--pampers or cloth diapers? The disposable ones offer some cushioning and the carrier has cushioning. Also if the kid is in pain or uncomfortable, he'll let ya know.
