    Default Mild hip dysplasia?

    Hi

    I picked up the results of my 7.5 month old DD's ultrasound results today and it says she has mild laxity and grade 1 hip dysplasia. It says I need to go back in 6 weeks for a progress check up. I can't get to the Dr today to get more info so has anyone had this with their bub? Is there any treatment during the 6 weeks before the next ultrasound? Coz I don't think much would change in 6 weeks. Has anyone had any experience in mild dysplasia? I'm just worried that it's going to get worse, if there's anything I can do to prevent it getting worse I want to start!

    Hi.. My DD had/has hip dysplasia. Picked up at birth... Appart from being in her brace for the 1st 3 months of her life they did not recommend anything 'special' for her. They said more weight bearing would be the best thing for her so, crawling & walking! We are almost due for another check up at 18months. I am hoping that'll be the end of her checks.

    I wouldn't worry about it, just yet, esp if it is a mild case.

    Both my girls have been treated for hip dysplasia, one with braces, the other braces, surgery/plaster, braces.

    It can be tricky to treat and sometimes all you can do is check every 6 weeks or so to see how the hips are developing. Some start to develop normally, other times you might need a brace.

    With my kids, it was a case of their hips not developing, rather than getting worse, if that makes sense. There's really nothing that you can do right now, just wait (thats the hard part!).

    Hope everything goes well at your next checkup.

    Hi,

    My second daughter was born with hip dysplasia. She was in a brace for 6 weeks (worst 6 weeks of my life!! But she was a really colicky baby) We go for our 1 year check up next week and so hoping all is well. Don't stress about it, just talk to your specialist and see what he suggests. The sooner it is sorted out the better..

    thanks everyone

    i guess im just worried that in the 6 weeks it will get worse. if its mild does that mean it stays mild? IYKWIM? i dont want to go back for the next ultrasound to find it has gotten worse. ive heard about double nappying, i dont know whether to give that a try or not?

    I went to my dr today for my bb immunization and i ask her about the hip ultrasound report. My son got the grade 1 hip dysplasia she recommend doing double nappy till the next ultrasound in 4 to 6 weeks. I'm just hoping it will help to make it better.
