Hip Dysplasia | Pavlik Harness, Breastfeeding, Sleeping, and How to Deal ❤️❤️ DDH 🦋 CDH 🦋

Thanks for watching my video! This is a bit of the story about my child being diagnosed with DDH (also called CDH or Hip Dysplasia) and our treatment with the Pavlik Harness. I include details about how that affected breastfeeding, sleeping, and products that made my life much easier.

    6 month old xrays just came back and they think she has ddh. I’m so mad at myself because they told me to take her to get the ultrasound but they also said she seems good so I didn’t stress about it. I’m a mess because she’s so active and I can’t imagine her getting pit on a brace at 8 months 😢

    My baby was diagnosed with DDH few days after she was born and she started wearing the harness at 3 weeks and now she’s 3 months going on 4 and it’s still on her I’m a bit worried

    Hi my daughter just got diagnosed at 7 weeks and I was wondering how long your son actually had to wear the harness. Because you talk about all of the checkups but don’t mention if he was still in the harness at that time. We are so worried that it will affect her developmental milestones :/

    My baby is 10 weeks old and has been diagnosed with DDH I am struggling trying to find comfortable positions to hold my baby and I had trouble on breastfeeding. But I will try the football position you mentioned. Thank you for that tip. Also I am interested in the which baby carrier works ?

    My baby is 4 weeks and have DDH
    And her left leg is shorter than the other
    Will her leg be okay after wearing the pavlik harness?
    Will she walk like a normal kid?

    New mom here. My daughter is 4 months old and we’ve been told she will most likely need a harness bc her hip sockets are shallow. And I’m nervous about it

    My daughter also had a smooth hip at the examinations, but they got the diagnostic at the ultrasound, and then they repeated it to make sure, and yes, my little girl has DDH. She’s 3 months, lets see how is gonna be the treatment. 😞
    Thank you soo much for the tips about the high socks also de colar shirt.
