I couldn't find the exact link I was looking for... I think it is a pretty old one. It had some good points in it, though. If you search "Bjorn" on these forums you'll come up with lots of threads though, and some have good information.

I will point out that the linked article in the pp was written by a chiropractor. Why don't you search for some studies on the connection between spondylolisthesis and baby carriers, and see if you can find any reputable ones that prove a connection?
For me personally, I'd rather not take the risk. My chiro, naturopath and pediatrician all say "no" to the Bjorn. That alone is enough to make me really question the safety of it. Combine that with the fact that I know *I* would be very uncomfortable being suspended by my crotch by a narrow strip of material and it pretty much seals the deal for me. The crotch is not designed to bear weight in that way. It isn't worth the risk... especially as someone with a family history of back and spine problems.
