Sleep deprivation is challenging for any family, however, if your baby is one of the 8-10 Australian babies being treated for Hip Dysplasia*, it can be overwhelming & difficult to find a sleep solution for your child.
Of those infants diagnosed with ‘Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip’ (DDH or Clicky Hips), 92% need to wear a brace or harness at some stage during their treatment process**, which essentially leaves parents with very few options; until now.
LOVE TO DREAM™ wants all families to get better, longer sleep; and that’s why we have our ‘Hip Harness friendly' swaddle range, for babies using a Hip Dysplasia harness or brace.
The SWADDLE UP™ Hip Harness swaddle has been approved by Healthy Hips Australia as ‘Hip-Wise’. Based on our award-winning and patented ARMS UP™ design for self-soothing & featuring a wider base, they can be worn over a Pavlik Harness, Denis Browne Bar (DBB) or a Rhino Brace.
For babies ready to transition from swaddling, LOVE TO DREAM™ also has the SWADDLE UP™ Transition Bag Hip Harness swaddle, to provide your Hip Baby with all the support they need to transition into arms-free sleep.
Awareness of Hip Dysplasia is low; 48% of parents have never heard of this common childhood condition. So, to help champion this very worthwhile cause; we are working hard to not only raise awareness, but also provide support to all the Hip Families out there.
Please share this with your friends and family to raise awareness of ‘Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip’, and let them know that there are sleep solutions out there. For the duration of Healthy Hips Week 2020 (May 1-7) we are also taking 15% off all our Hip Harness products, to help Hip Families get better, longer sleep.
