my 3mo ds may have hip dysplacia. we are going to the ortho in a few weeks, but in the mean time i want to do what i can myself to help get his hip into the correct position. i borrowed a kozy for a friend and that works well for the froggy position on the front. i haven't worn him on my back yet using a wrap, anyone have any ideas for helpful back positions? thanks!

I hope you hear good news at the visit - from what I've read, a mei tai is one of the best for optimal hip positioning, and I love mine. The WAHM that I bought 3 (!) from, I believe, is super affordable and makes beautiful carriers. Her site is <a href="http://www.beanslingsandseats.com" target="_blank">www.beanslingsandseats.com</a>. HTH, and I hope you that your lttle guy's hip gets rave reviews at the doctor. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

any carrier that has the hips spread wide, knees above bum, is going to be good, and you can do that with almost all the carriers (exceptions are things like a snuggli). mei tai would probably be easiest to get good positioning in. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nod.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nod"> but you could also do wraps, ring sling, pouches, ssc, etc.

I know the booklet that comes with a Didymos has info on hip dyplasia.<br><br>
I think it was mainly just a wrap is good for it.
