Dr. Amanda weiss Kelly Pediatric Sports Medicine & mom of Nora, 4, and Andrew, 18 months

I’m Dr. Amanda Weiss-Kelly, a pediatrician and medical expert on child muscular and skeletal development at the Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. And I’m also a mom. I’m thrilled to partner with BabyBjörn to help parents around the world with their questions on baby carriers, hip dysplasia and child development. As a pediatrician, I’ve recommended baby carriers, like the BabyBjörn, to help promote parent and child bonding. As a mom, I’ve experienced the tremendous benefits first hand, using a baby carrier with my own children. There is a lot of misinformation circulating about baby carriers, and I’m here to provide the medical facts and set the record straight on this essential product.
