Rainbow Babies & Children´s Hospital
BABYBJÖRN has worked for years with medical experts around the world in the creation and development of our products to provide families a sense of security knowing that they have chosen the best for them and their babies. These relationships have led to endorsements of our products by Swedish, French and German doctors, and now most recently, by Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital, Cleveland, Ohio (Rainbow).
Ranked among the top ten pediatric hospitals in America by U.S. News & World Report, Rainbow recommends BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers to parents in order to help facilitate the closeness and bonding that is essential between them and their infants.
Rainbow's endorsement is significant because their pediatricians published the landmark research on infant-parent bonding more than 25 years ago, highlighting the importance of both mothers and fathers frequently carrying their infants to help them adapt to life outside the womb. Today, its research is well-established and accepted by both experts and parents.
According to Rainbow and its chairman of pediatrics, Dr. Avroy Fanaroff, the front-wearing design and intimate, secure fit of a BABYBJÖRN Baby Carrier make it a product best-suited to improving the critical infant-parent bond. The parents' natural movements calm baby and ease stress. Baby is positioned comfortably in the carrier and can face mom or dad during his early months of life, providing him with visual contact and bodily warmth. As baby grows older, he can be carried facing forward to explore the world. Rainbow and Dr. Fanaroff also believe BABYBJÖRN Baby Carriers provide the proper support for baby's spine and hips.
