LOS ANGELES, Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Ergobaby®, the award-winning designer of premium ergonomic baby carriers, has been recognized by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) for its Original Carrier and Four Position 360 Carrier designs.  Specifically, IHDI has acknowledged those carriers as being "Hip Healthy" products. In addition, the IDHI recognizes that Ergobaby has developed products that consider the importance of healthy hip development during infancy, which is especially important during the early stages of hip development in the first few months after birth.

"Ergobaby was founded on the principle of ergonomic design that is healthy for baby's hips and comfortable for both parents and babies. It is fundamental to the design of every product we create and we are honored to be recognized by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute," says Cynthia Neiman, CMO of Ergobaby. "It's particularly exciting that both our Original Carrier, our flagship product that defined the brand, and our newest carrier design, the Four Position 360 Carrier, were acknowledged because it reflects how dedicated and true we have stayed to designing ergonomic and safe carriers."

These award-winning Ergobaby designs hold baby in a recommended, ergonomic, natural "M" shaped seated position that supports baby's hips. The padded waist belt ensures baby's weight is evenly distributed between the parent's hips and shoulders, while the adjustable, cushy padded shoulder straps provide parents with ultimate comfort. In the past year, the Ergobaby Original Carrier was recognized as "Best Carrier" by American Baby magazine, and the Ergobaby Four Position 360 Carrier was awarded the Juvenile Product Manufacturers Association (JPMA) 2014 Innovation Award. In addition, Ergobaby Carriers were recognized with "Best Baby Carrier" and "Best Quality" awards by BabyCenter and "Comfiest Way To Keep Baby Close" by the Cribsie Awards.
