THE FIRST SOFT BABY CARRIER BY DECATHLON

Why do we need you?

The Quechua design team embarked on the development of a baby carrier intended for young parents wishing to enjoy the pleasures of outdoor walks with their family.

Indeed, it is not always easy to continue practicing your favorite sports when you become parents. And yet there's nothing like a breath of fresh air with your baby to soothe the whole family!

However, our first observations led us to the following observation:

  • not all baby carriers necessarily respect a physiological position for the baby
  • babies and parents often get hot with the baby carrier
  • I'm going for a walk with my baby, but how do I take what I need with me?

Therefore, we are looking for young parents or those in the process of becoming one to help us finalize the design of our first physiological baby carrier which will allow you to go for a walk in complete autonomy.

How to contribute?

The aim of this survey is to collect information which will allow us to validate the essential functionalities of this baby carrier suitable for family walks/hikes but also of course which will accompany you on all your daily trips with baby.

And also allow us to improve the understanding of our instructions for use so that baby is installed simply and safely!

Finally, this will also allow us to identify parents among you who are interested in joining our panel of future in-use and long-term testers.

We thank you in advance for the time you will take to answer these questions.


// PROGRESS OF THE CO-CREATION PROJECT //

We have already made good progress on our prototypes, particularly thanks to our partnership with specialists in the physiology of young children. A physiotherapist, an osteopath, a midwife and a carrying instructor accompany us at each stage of development to advise us on the best choices. Thanks to their expertise, we were able to validate the most appropriate shape and materials to guarantee the comfort of the baby (physiological position) and the parents!


Thanks to you, we will then be able to validate the ideal product adapted to your needs as well as a good understanding of our instructions for use: JANUARY - FEB 2021

Then, we will offer you several color choices and will take your votes into consideration to choose the design of our future model: FEB - MARCH 2021

And last but not least, you will help us finalize the validation of our baby carrier thanks to your collaboration to test our model in the field in use and then over the long term before it is marketed! MAY - AUGUST 2021


The entire team thanks you for your collaboration in the co-development of a baby carrier that guarantees the physiological position of your baby, accessible and hiking friendly!

To thank you for your participation, we will offer you discussions (videos, questions/answers) on physiological carrying with our health partners!
