As any parent of a baby who has to wear a brace will know, finding the right sleepwear that’s not only comfortable but keeps baby warm isn’t easy.
ergoPouch has just released The Hip Harness Cocoon Swaddle Bag and The Hip Harness Jersey Sleeping Bag, perfect for children who are being treated for Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH) and are required to wear a special brace.
Approved by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as being hip-healthy, this two-way zip-up swaddle features an extra-wide bell-shaped bottom that fits over a Pavlik Harness, Denis Browne Brace and a Rhino Brace.
Handily, it converts from an arms-in swaddle to an arms-out sleeping bag. The swaddle is TOG rated, so there’s no need for blankets. And ergoPouch has an easy-to-follow ‘what to wear’ guide for parents.
The Hip Harness Cocoon Swaddle Bag is made from and filled with GOTS certified organic cotton and a touch of elastane. It’s also certified non-toxic and is dyed with water-based dyes, so it’s gentle on newborn skin. The Eczema Association of Australasia has reviewed this swaddle as a skin-friendly product.

For older infants and toddlers, there’s The Hip Harness Jersey Sleeping Bag!
The Jersey Sleeping Bag is designed for arms out sleeping (usually from around 4 months of age), which ensures heat regulation and safety for babies who have started to roll.
And don’t worry it has all same features as the Cocoon Swaddle Bag (wide bell-shaped bottom, approved as hip-healthy, non-toxic dyes and organic fibres and more)
The great news is that once your child doesn’t need to wear a brace anymore, they can stay in the Hip Harness Cocoon Swaddle bag and Jersey Sleeping Bag until they are ready to move into another one.
