September is Baby Safety Month and I wanted to give you some information about safe swaddling techniques. Did you know that swaddling an infant's legs in the fully extended position can cause hip displaysia? Halo's SleepSacks and Swaddles are the only products on the market approved “hip healthy” by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute.
This video from Dr. Price gives some good information on hip dysplasia and why swaddling safely is so important.
Using safe swaddling techniques can also help reduce infant suffocation and SIDS, which is the leading cause of death in infants ages 1 month to 1 year of age. Dr. Tanya Altman shows five steps to safe sleep habits in this video.
Did you know the number of SIDS deaths has decreased by 50% since the "Back to Sleep" campaign was launched by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National Institute of Child Health and Development? Keep spreading the word about safe swaddling techniques and Baby Safety Month!
