Oh my friends little boy was in a harness last year from birth to about 3 months I think. The harnesses haven't advanced much! It was identical!!

is she ok now? its a stupid question but was it for her legs?

Oh yes she's fine now and has been all along.

I just posted this because Tipex posted about Congenital Dislocation of the Hip or CDH.

It is a condition which the child is born with where the hip socket does not form properly.

It is treated in various ways, the legs are put in a permanent frog position either with a harness like this or a plaster and or a hip operation is undertaken to break the bone and re-align with a pin.

this brings so many memories, my dd had to wear one of these braces, i broke my heart at first, she was only 3 months old and the weather was hot.
2 years on and we've just been for a check up, and the poorly hip has caught up with the good one, so we don't have to go back for 12 months. hooray!!
