WHY BABUEBABY CARRIERS?

Babuebaby Carriers are specially designed to provide healthy musculoskeletal system stability for children and caregivers, improving quality of life and well-being of children and parents.

Our carriers utilize the much-more stable joints of the hips through torso,  reducing stress on joints with decreased stability like shoulders, which are also more prone to injury. We use an evidence-based approach and strategies that help maintain musculoskeletal health in caregivers so they will be less impacted by joint pain as they age.

HOW DO YOU WEAR BABUEBABY CARRIERS?

Back Carry with a Helper
