Your child will develop red areas on their shoulders, lower limbs and chest. An ideal time to do this is when your baby is in the bath. Once it has been decided that the harness can be removed by your doctor, the Doctor or Nurse Practitioner will show you how to take the harness on and off. Avoid rolled up supports under the thighs and allow the legs room to spread apart. My name is Hannah and I am 17 years old. Do not use creams or oils on the skin near the harness. Sometimes the hips are more stable and the child is allowed out of the harness for an hour each day. Keep the harness dry at all times (unless your surgeon tells you otherwise). Collared body suits are often recommended, but the regular ones are usually all that’s needed unless the straps are rubbing the neck. A large size HALO SleepSack can be used as long as there is plenty of room for the legs and the neck fits appropriately. Do not lay your baby on their side as it is not good for your baby’s hips at this stage. Babies usually fit in an umbrella stroller but keep the legs apart as much as possible. You may remove the harness during bath time only if directed by the baby’s practitioner. For playing, lay your baby on his/her tummy, back, or in a sitting position. The Pavlik (PAV-lick) harness is a brace used for babies with a hip disorder or femur fracture. The baby may require several harness sizes with growth.
