To prevent serious injury or death:
Acknowledged by International Hip Dysplasia Institute as Hip Healthy for your baby when used as directed, the new ClevaMama Baby & Hip Carrier encourages healthy hip development in infants.
The healthiest position for the hips is for the hips to fall or spread (naturally) apart to the side, with the thighs supported and the hips and knees bent. This position has been called the jockey position or frog position.
Using a “Hip Healthy” approved baby carrier is always encouraged.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is hip dysplasia and how common is it?
Hip dysplasia is the medical term for instability, or looseness, of the hip joint. This affects thousands of children each year and ranges from mild instability to complete dislocation. About one out of every six full term babies has some mild hip instability and two or three per thousand will require treatment.
Hip dysplasia is not a “birth defect” because nothing is missing. This looseness is because the mother makes hormones that help ligaments relax during the birth process. The birth position may also stretch the hips and make them loose. Fortunately, most loose hips in babies tighten up naturally and the hips grow correctly. Prevention and early diagnosis are the keys to simple treatment before the hip dislocates or becomes stuck in a bad position.
What causes Hip Dysplasia?
How common is Hip Dysplasia?
Did something happen during my pregnancy or the delivery of the baby to cause Hip Dysplasia?
No. There are no special precautions during the pregnancy or delivery that would have prevented hip dysplasia.
Can Hip Dysplasia be diagnosed prenatally?
No. There are no diagnostic tests during pregnancy that could predict hip dysplasia in infants. Hip dysplasia is more of a birth condition, although it can also develop after birth in some infants.
What happens if Hip Dysplasia goes untreated?
If treatment is delayed beyond 2 years of age, hip deformity can lead to painful hips, waddling walking and a decrease in strength. If untreated altogether, osteoarthritis (a painful hip disorder) and other hip deformities can develop in young adulthood.
