    HEALTH & WELLBEING BENEFITS

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

    • Chiropractor, Dr Ali Young
    • Chiropractor & Children's Health Specialist, Dr Jacey Pryjma
    • Physio, Brock Smith
    • Physio and Womens Health Specialist, Alison Jeffrey

    FOR PARENTS & CARERS


    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!"

    RSI’s:
    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.

    SJI:
    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"

    FOR BABIES

    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."

    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!

    FAQs

    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 about the hip healthy "M" position 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!

    The hip surfer is the absolute best invention EVER!!! My son is 2 years old and has cerebral palsy and can not walk. So at school drop off and pick up I use my hip surfer every day!! Also to grab something quick from the shop if I don’t want to cart the pram everywhere!! Honestly it’s perfect. Iv added some photos. Don’t mind babbas face 🤭

    Baby essential & travel hack!

    This is my new essential item that comes with us EVERYWHERE! Not only does it come in handy at home by taking the pressure off my shoulders and back when carrying bub but it has made our outings much more stress free! Great for little outings where a pram is just to much or when the little one refuses to sit in the trolley.
    We fly frequently and getting through security can be a hassle with a carrier or stroller. The hipsurfer has given me so much more freedom, support and convenience. Life changing!

    Best investment for when you have a bub who always wants snuggles and then to explore 1min later

    My 8month old loves jumping onto the hipsurfer for cuddles & enjoys the freedom of being able to get on and off at any second. I now make sure to keep it in the car for shopping trips or short outings as it's easier to put on than a carrier/ not hard to take off. Bubs has fallen asleep on it many times whilst out. Not something I would wear for walks over 30mins that's when I would use my carrier/pram. I use it heaps just at home during the day to take the strain off my wrists and give me an extra hand. Zip pockets are good can fit keys/ phone / nappy.

    So much easier for daycare drop off and pick up!

    Our Hipsurfer has been an absolute game changer, particularly doing daycare drop off and pick ups with an older kid! No need to try and whack on a cumbersome carrier, or pull out the pram and try to assemble with two kids in tow, just pop on the Hipsurfer and we’re off! Very grateful to have this product in our lives - both on the go, and breastfeeding. My back and hips are far more comfortable than they were with our first - and family can easily swap in to help too. The key hang spot, and easy access phone pouch and pocket are so handy to have, I clip my keys on and don’t need to try and wrestle for a pocket underneath everything. Amazing product and commitment to good customer service.

    Helps with back pain & great customer service!

    The hipsurfer is so much easier to use than all the carriers that needs straps and are so hot to use during summer months.
    Hipsurfer has been a great help with my nack and wrist pain, most of my baby's weight are now spread throughout my biggest muscle groups (core and back) and not just my arms. Very happy with the quality of it too. I will keep revommending it to all my friends.

    Versatile and Chic

    Honestly, I was quite hesitant at first to purchase this product. Apart from just discovering it on Facebook, I don’t really know anyone who’s used this before and I’m not too sure if it’s worth purchasing one or if my little one will even like it. But I took the risk and bought one for my daughter — And I was very impressed with it!
    Mind you, I already have one of those strappy baby carriers from a popular brand which is also very nice but it can be quite tasking and time consuming to strap on and off. The Hackerlily Hip Surfer is the solution for this with its easy hop-on and hop-off design. It makes it very convenient for me to get bubs on and off fast if I need to soothe her, switch position, change her nappy, breastfeed or cuddle her to sleep. And to top it off, my daughter is enjoying her time on it.

    Practical, stylish & back-saving!

    The hipsurfer seat has been SUCH a game changer for us! So quick and easy to use, comfortable, looks cute & way easier on the back than just holding bub or using traditional buckle baby carriers! Also makes having a velcro-baby that you can’t put down a breeze! Can not recommend enough!

    The best!

    I’m so happy I finally decided to purchase one! My bub is 5 months and loves being carried and close. It’s so easy and we are both loving the longer cuddles without breaking the back! Thank you 🙏

    We love our hipsurfer

    My 11 month old son and I love our hipsurfer because I can hold him so close. We have the best snuggles and plays together. I often use it at the shops and for bushwalks around my property. The hipsurfer takes the pressure off my shoulders, and it's easy on my partners back.

    Great for traveling

    I bought the hipsurfer just before a three week campervanning trip with my 3.5 month old daughter. Its been a great investment - really quick and secure to strap on, saves my back strain, was super convenient to breastfeed on the go when there wasn't anywhere good to sit, and my baby loves being close to me. I used it predominantly for short walks and activities. For hikes, it was still better to use a carrier for the added support and safety. Because my daughter is young, the hipsurfer was a little big for her and her legs were more splayed out than the ideal 'm' shape recommended, so I kept its use for shorter periods but im confident I'll get lots of use for it in the future as she grows into it more. It's also really pretty, and I got lots of compliments about it! My main consideration is that it's a bit bulky if you're a shorty like me, I'm 5'1 so my torso is a bit shorter than most, so the hipsurfer takes up more room than I had anticipated.

    Thanks so much for sharing this feedback Stef. So glad it helped on your holiday. As your bub grows to 4-6 months and beyond - her legs will be perfectly cupped over the side of the HipSurfer - ensuring greater comfort and longevity of use. Happy HipSurfing!
