Is the Croozer Baby Seat ergonomic?

Whether it’s a baby sling, a child seat or a baby seat for a child trailer: Many parents are uncertain as to when it is safe to take their child with them and whether the respective carrier is healthy and ergonomic. In this post, we share our perspective on this subject!

Croozer Baby Seat

When is my child robust enough to ride in a child trailer?

The following always applies: There is no generally binding rule as to how old your child should be. You know your baby best, so listen to your gut feeling here: If your baby prefers to be carried on your body and/or it feels better for you to carry your baby, then it’s just the right thing.

Here is our recommendation: Thanks to the baby seat, the Croozer can be used as a buggy from the 1st month of life without any concerns. From the time when the baby can lift and hold its head independently (from around 3 - 6 months), the Croozer can also be used as a bicycle trailer. We recommend that you do not cycle too fast - it is better to start with short, leisurely tours on flat paths. Plan a short break here and there - just as with car journeys in baby car seats, the same applies to the Croozer as a buggy or bike trailer with baby seat: don’t ride for too long at a time. The baby’s back and stomach muscles are not yet strong enough and need to be relieved from time to time.

The baby seat is usually suitable for small passengers up to the age of 10 months. After that, they can continue travelling in the child seat with our seat support.

Is the reclining position ergonomically healthy?

From a physiological point of view, the spine of an infant in its first months of life has a slightly convex curve. This is also why, in the Croozer Baby Seat, your baby does not lie completely flat on its back but instead is held in a slightly curled position. This reclining position is ergonomically appropriate and perfectly suited to the needs of the baby and their spine.
In addition, the Croozer Baby Seat does not have a hard base, but instead can be best described as a freely hanging fabric hammock. With its soft, body-hugging form, high side walls and slightly curving surface, the Croozer Baby Seat is very cosy for the infant and gives them a sense of safety and security.
Minor vibrations and bumps are gently absorbed, giving the child a calming ride. Nevertheless, it is extremely important to ride carefully, especially around tight curves and avoid unevenness.

In spite of the seat’s excellent ergonomics, you should still take frequent breaks when you’re on longer trips so that your child doesn’t spend too much time in the same position. After letting them rest for a while and stretch their joints, you can continue your walk or ride.

After evaluating the Croozer Baby Seat, physiotherapist Susanne Galonska came to a reassuring conclusion: “We are born to be carried and expect to be held securely in a curved position on our parents’ bodies. Any other carrier in which the infant spends time should mimic this optimal position as closely as possible.”
