SwaddleTots was formed mainly because we found a problem in mainstream swaddles… It is a lurking issue that has caused babies to be sent to the hospital with some being administered leg braces. This problem has even hindered with their growth. It is called Hip Dysplasia.
Why Is It More Likely To Affect Newborns?
The exact cause(s) are not known. However it is widely believed that hip dysplasia is developmental. This is because hip dysplasia is known to develop around the time of birth, after birth, or even during childhood. This is also why hip dysplasia is often referred to as developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). How does science explain why it’s more susceptible to happen to newborns? Genetics is a factor but it’s not the direct cause of DDH. With genetics it’s 12 times more likely to occur if there is a family history of it. However, note that genetics it’s not the direct cause of DDH.
A short explanation is due to the fact that a newborn’s hip joints is much softer than the adult’s one. This softness of hip joints will lead to DDH (Hip Dislocation) if the position of the leg is not kept properly. e.g. extension of hip joints.
