Playing with Babywearing in a Brace for Hip Dysplasia.

Hello all!  This is a special post about a special baby and mama who really have done so much to stay together, close and happy while having a non-conventional start.   This little 5 week old was born with hip dysplasia, a condition not too uncommon, and corrected therapeutically by wearing a Pavlik harness or other Type of Brace (pictured below) to gently hold the babies legs in the optimal position to promote optimal deep hip socket development.

Babywearing in soft carriers that take the babies shape and support the baby all the way from the back of the knee to the back of the other knee is an ideal practice harmonizing with the harnesses and Braces and other hip dysplasia therapies for babies.

 

here is an upclose shot of the Boots and Bar that helps to make up the positioning device that the baby wears.

We also tried wrapping and found success both ways!  I am happy to see that babywearing has many paths to success for these mamas and babies starting out with hip dysplasia!
