BabyBjörn and emotional closeness
”Carrying your newborn on your chest is like being on cloud nine”
Björn Jakobson, founder of BabyBjörn AB
It was renowned pediatrician John Lind along with the groundbreaking research of Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital who inspired BabyBjörn’s founder, Björn Jakobson, to create the first BabyBjörn baby carrier. As the father of three, Björn had naturally experienced the wonderful feeling of carrying a newborn in his arms. He decided to develop an aid that would facilitate bonding between babies and their parents in a natural way. In 1973, the first baby carrier from BabyBjörn was launched. It was named ”Hjärtenära” (Close to the heart).
Today, doctors and medical experts all over the world agree on the importance of physical contact between children and parents, especially during the child’s first six months. Since BabyBjörn baby carriers help strengthen the emotional bond between the child and his or her parents, it is recommended by Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, one of the best pediatric hospitals in the USA, according to US News & World Report.
