Sleepy Hugs Extra-Wide Sack (Hip Dysplasia) - Cool Grey (All Seasons)


Transition from swaddle to free arms without losing sleep!

Once your baby is showing signs of being able to roll, swaddling is no longer safe. The Sleepy Hugs baby sleeping bag is safe for babies who have started to roll onto their tummy during sleep as they are able to move their arms into their preferred position.

The Sleepy Hugs baby sleeping bag is designed for babies who have outgrown swaddling or can no longer be swaddled and gives unrestricted arm movement while they sleep, but still need some security to calm their startle reflex.  

This Extra-Wide Sack version is for babies that have been diagnosed with hip dysplasia or Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH), and need to wear a special brace (orthosis). The key difference being a wider bottom sack to comfortably fit a hip dysplasia brace, Pavlik Harness, Denis Browne Brace, Rhino brace, or Spica Cast.
