Sleep deprivation is challenging for any family, however, if you’re a parent of the ‘1 in 100’ infants being treated for Hip Dysplasia , it can be overwhelming & really difficult to find a sleep solution for your child.
Of those infants diagnosed with ‘Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip’ (DDH), 92% need to wear a brace or harness at some stage during their treatment process*, which essentially leaves parents with very few options for sleep solutions; until now.
We, as a team, decided to launch a ‘Hip Harness’ friendly swaddle range, for babies using a Hip Dysplasia harness or brace.
The LOVE TO DREAM™ SWADDLE UP™ Hip Harness Swaddle & SWADDLE UP™ TRANSITION BAG Hip Harness swaddles have been approved as "hip healthy" by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. They are based on our award-winning and patented ARMS UP™ design for self-soothing & feature a wider base so that they can be worn over a Pavlik Harness, Denis Browne Bar (DBB) or a Rhino Brace.
Our original SWADDLE UP™ collection, which is also deemed "hip healthy by IHDI, has been proven to almost double infants’ average sleep time to nearly 7.5 hours**, and as Hana, our founder confirms “we’re confident that, by giving babies with Hip Dysplasia a more comfortable way to sleep, the new LOVE TO DREAM™ Hip Harness Swaddles will be similarly life changing for their families.”
Awareness of ‘Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip’ is low; 48% of parents have never heard of this common childhood condition. Please share this with your friends and family and help us raise awareness of Hip Dysplasia and spread the word that there are now swaddles that can be used over hip dysplasia braces.
