    We are delighted to have received phenomenal feedback and recommendations from the following health practicioners in Australia:

    • Chiropractor. Dr Ali Young
    • Chiropractor & Childrens Health Specialist, Dr Jacey Pryjma
    • Physio, Brock Smith
    • Physio and Womens Health Specialist, Alison Jeffrey


    It’s a medical fact, carrying your growing children (especially as a new mother or grandparent) can cause injury and long-term chronic pain, if the cause of the condition is not treated.

    Common conditions that the HipSurfer can aid, reduce, improve or prevent include:

    Spinal Curvature:
    We’ve all seen the mum in the park popping her hip out to carry her toddler - now imagine doing that 100 times a day for 3-9 years. That has got to do some kind of chronic, long-term damage right?

    The HipSurfer has been designed to reduce the ‘hip-pop’ and to improve posture and overall spine and back health in carers.

    Dr Jacey says 'The HipSurfer provides a beautiful merriment of caring for your spine as a parent and supporting your child to have a freedom and flexibility they need."

    "As a Chiropractor I am constantly working with parents who have created a ‘sway’ in their lumbar spine from constantly holding their baby on one hip. These postural imbalances lead to stress and strain that can affect function and also be painful.

    The HipSurfer provides parents with a thick comfortable belt that distributes the weight well. Allowing the parent to remain in a more neutral position. Because it provides such good support for the child, it also means parents can then start to practice holding the child on the other side. Chiropractors always love balancing out patterns and habits like this. It’s good for the body and also good for the brain!"

    Brock Smith, Brisbane based physio says: a sudden increase in lifting can cause overuse injuries (RSI) in the elbow, thumb, back, neck, shoulders, forearms and other susceptible areas.

    Solution: The HipSurfer’s ergonomic design allows the baby to rest their full weight on the hipseat, allowing the parent to rest their lower back, arms, shoulders, wrists and fingers. By reducing the action and impact of gripping and holding the child’s total weight, this will in turn reduce the chance of an RSI.

    Hormones are released in pregnancy which cause ligaments to relax in preparation for childbirth. Unfortunately this can also cause some joints to move more than what they are meant to - SJI is one example of this. The Sacro-iliac joint sits at the base of the spine. Normally this has very minimal movement, although during pregnancy it can move more and cause irritation, shooting pain and swelling in the area. This irritation can then be exaggerated when carrying a new baby on the hip"

    Solution: Brock recommends the HipSurfer to any new mum who is facing challenges with overuse injuries like SJI to trial off-loading the painful area - reducing the pain stress and allowing some time to heal.

    The HipSurfer can help with treating the underlying cause to a range of injuries facing new mums and other parents. By relieving the cause of pain by using the HipSurfer, it can mean less costs in attending appointments and more time spent at home with your bub. Who wouldn’t want that?

    It is recommended to talk to your Physio to see if this product is right for you"


    The HipSurfer supports the healthy M position for babies (this is where their knees are above their bum) and helps reduce the cause and recovery of overuse injuries related to baby carrying.

    No longer will you be permanently fixed in the popped-out-hip, weird curved back, baby hanging off you, kinda struggling #mumsstance.

    Dr Ali Young Says: "As a parent who had a child with hip dysplasia, I wish I had this product to help with carrying my little girl."

    "As a practitioner, I love the design and the angle of the hips around the mother, the support it offers, and the ability to have an attached parenting style whilst still maintaining the integrity of the child's hip function."


    Hard Wearing Material: The HipSurfer is crafted from stain-resistant, durable, washable and hard-wearing polyester. Designed for years of use for the whole family and sourced ethically and as sustainably as possible by our partners.

    Easily Washable: The covers wash super easily and the whole HipSurfer can be washed on a low temp if there are any spills or whoopsies.

    The HipSurfer is seriously a game changer for me. Ever since my bubba arrived, my wrists have been so sore! As soon as I put the HipSurfer on, my hands were so much more relaxed.
    Customer reviews
    This is a carrier without all the weird straps around you, it makes it very easy (and quick) to change my baby from the siting position to the breastfeeding one or even from side to side… It really takes her dead weight off me so I can carry her longer.
    Customer reviews
    Since my baby started walking, he no longer wants to be strapped into the carrier or pram. After trying the HipSurfer and realising how much pressure was taken off my wrist and how easy it was to hold our baby, it this product really is a no-brainer!

    Our #1 priority here at Hackerlily is your happiness. We have your back as well as your peace of mind. If you have a problem, we will solve it. If you have any queries or concerns, please reach out to our Customer Happiness Team.


    Is The HipSurfer safe for babies and toddlers developing bodies?

    Pediatricians recommend a healthy seated “M” position when babies are being carried - and luckily for you, the HipSufer naturally promotes this through it's ergonomic design.

    The “M” position means your little one’s knees should be sitting higher than their bum when they’re in the face-to-face and side carry position.

    For more information jsee this video or download our Product and Safety Manual

    Is there an age or weight limit?

    The Hackerlily HipSurfer can be used from birth as a breastfeeding support aid. From 4 -6 months old, babies can hop on and take a ride on the HipSurfer (facing in towards you). As your baby grows and starts to sit up and explore the world you will see your HipSurfer grow into its baby carrying golden years!

    Lightens the load!

    I have a hefty boy who loves to be held and my upper body strength is not ideal but the hipsurfer literally takes the weight. It doesn't put any extra pressure on my back or hips, it spreads the load out evenly and I can carry my boy for so much longer and more comfortably. If you're undecided about buying one, stop hesitating you won't regret it! I never use any other carriers now! I often put it under my pram for those times when my baby wants to be out looking and I can still navigate the pram with ease.

    Hipsurfing Game Changer!

    The hipsurfer is a game-changing must have accessory. It's soo easy making quick trips with my super clinger! I even use it around the house when she won't go down! And I actually see my chiro less now. This is definitely changing the way we baby wear. It's an essential for all parents!

    A great option for mums and bubs!

    As a practice health professional, who works predominantly with children and mum's, I just love the ease and spinal alignment that the hip surfer gives. As a parent, I wish I had one when I had littles. Would of been perfect for those quick trips to the shops and the playground cuddles.

    Life changing!

    The HipSurfer is so easy to put on and off. Which is especially helpful with my toddler wanting to be picked up and put down all the time. Easily fits the essentials in the pocket for when you need to pop out of the house. It has eased my Mum Thumb pains by 100% and no more hip popping while carrying my toddler. I’m really looking forward to my next flight as I can see it will help the journey so much. I want to shout from the rooftops about this product! Every Mum needs it. Love, love love!

    Great support

    I saw this product and initially thought it wouldn't work well but I was pleasantly surprised! Great support especially because I have a weak lower back. Not the full 5 stars because the bottle holder elastic is quite narrow and when I tried to stretch it to fit my bottle, it tore a little at the top - needs a little more stretch. Also, the covers are great and easy to wipe off but you can't access the zipped pocket unless the cover is fully removed so it's not really convenient to use. An access hole to the zipped compartment would help. Overall, great product for support when holding bubs! Just needs tweaks for functionality.

    Hi Christine. Thank you so much for your review. We are so delighted that is supports the most important aspect of reducing the strain on your bod and providing support. Your other bits of feedback are so important to us and we are already planning some brilliant upgrades and improvements in our second release. Thanks for sharing your positive HipSurfing experience so far and welcome to the community. Laura x
