What is Hip Dysplasia?
Hip dysplasia is considered a “silent condition” that can go undetected until it’s too late to correct.
That’s why here in Switzerland, we have mandatory hip ultrasounds for all babies when they reach 2 months of age. But not all countries have mandatory hip check-ups. So it’s important for parents to be familiar with the fundamentals of infant hip development.
In some babies, the ball of the thighbone doesn’t fit securely into the hip socket. And if their hips are stretched out too much, you can distort the cup-shaped socket. And that causes bigger problems when it’s time for baby to start walking.
No carrier can cause hip dysplasia if it is not already an existing condition for your baby. But correct hip positioning is a smart way to make sure your child is comfortable and developing properly.
HIPSTER™ PLUS Solution
The International Hip Dysplasia Institute acknowledges the MiaMily Hipster 3D Baby Carrier as a "hip-healthy" product when used as directed. Forward facing seated position is only safe starting at 6 months old.
We incorporated a 3D hip seat specifically to keep your baby’s hips in the correct M position-knees bent, hips bent and open to the side and thighs supported. It’s impossible to wear your baby the wrong way.
Hip Dysplasia is a silent condition. Our hip seat ensures your baby's legs are always in the correct M position.
