Narrow based carriers don't cause hip displasia. They can make it worse if the baby already has issues. So if her baby is healthy, I wouldn't worry about it. The real issue with those carriers is...

I tandem wear often with my almost 3 year old and my 7 month old.  I don't like to do it in one wrap though.  It's awkward and inevitably someone wants down as soon as I've finished tying! ;)  I can...
