A baby sling is not a new invention. By far, the peoples in many countries created from the towel styles into hiking baby carrier on their backs. From European countries, Africa and Asia, but perhaps most in Asian countries such as ethnic Chinese, Korean, Japanese and typical ethnic Hmong in Vietnam also featured carrying style.
However, thanks to the development of apparel technology, a dozen years ago, the advanced countries have inherited this traditional design and released the carrier line, which is extremely advanced. The baby carrier turns to be light, certain, integrating many different types of the carrier styles that can even carry the baby in the front for a walk instead of just carrying on the back.
But recently, according to the official publication of the Institute for Human Development, the majority of baby carrier product available on the market is not good for the development of the hip joint of the baby because the manufacturer did not study the relationship between their designs with children’s health, but just follow other standards such as lightweight materials, integrating many types of carrying, and cheaper prices.
So, children are affected on their bones when using carrier and such those types are recommended not for use in children.
When still in the womb, the fetus’s joints, especially in two hips and knees, bent and children themselves can be folded to fit in the mother’s uterus. Now, the baby’s joints are very loose and flexible to wait for the extremely difficult through labor.
After birth, it took several months for the joints to stretch out in a natural way with the development of the muscles and ligaments surrounding the consolidation. Therefore, any external effects go against the normal development process are causing developmental disorders of young joints medicine, which is called hip dyspepsia. This disease is difficult to detect in newborn and almost harmless until they mature and causes long-term consequences such as arthritis, osteoarthritis…
So, what are bad effects?
It is when parents use the baby carrier, car seats, or simply holding him and create completely opposite position to position of the baby in the womb so that it will cause the bad effects on joints in long term.
When they were just a fetus, the feet and knees are close to their hip but until they are a newborn, if you let them stay in a position to straighten their legs or thighs horizontally, knees are far to their hip to increase the pressure on the bones and increase the strength of the joints. And if in long term, this will cause damage as synovial joints to deviate and weaken.
The right posture of carrying or holding a baby is most close to the fetal position, a posture called M. And the kinds of baby carriers which can create this position are advised to use for baby.
If you pay attention you will find traditional carrying – on – back style is kind of the pediatrician recommending.
Currently, on the market, there are many types of baby carriers with different styles and prices. The wiser consumers and smarter mothers, the more you take care of health perspective that the product offers.
