A practice in improperly swaddling babies has resulted in an epidemic of hip dysplasia as their legs need to be able to move.
New parents will try just about anything when it comes to keeping their infants content, but one thing seems to have stood the test of time – swaddling. Unfortunately, new warnings have come out, saying that if you ever see a baby swaddled like this, you should unwrap them immediately.
Swaddling is one of the first things new parents learn, as it not only helps keep the baby warm, but helps comfort them with a womb-like embrace. Unfortunately, it seems that some parents aren’t exactly wrapping their babies correctly and it’s resulted in a rise in a serious medical condition.
