When our little one, L., was diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia, we were overcome with a mix of different emotions and so many questions. There were few helpful resources available online, so I decided to document some of the key parts of our daughter’s hip journey, including helpful tips, in hopes of helping other families. L. was placed in a Pavlik Harness at 5 weeks and after six weeks in the harness she was switched to the Rhino brace for an additional 4 weeks. Our hip journey has lasted about 11 weeks.
