Does Swaddling Influence Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip?

There is concern in both the pediatric and pediatric orthopedic communities that it may influence the rate of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) in this population of neonates.

M Mongolian traditional swaddling where legs are extended and hips are in extension and adduction position increases the risk for developmental dysplasia of the hip.

Interventions for influencing sleep patterns in exclusively breastfed infants.

There is some evidence to show that first time parents using a structured sleeping programme can teach their babies to sleep through the night by eight weeks of age.

Infant crying patterns in the first year: normal community and clinical findings.

A large developmental shift in crying amount, and two age-related changes of crying pattern, were found.

Spontaneous arousals in supine infants while swaddled and unswaddled during rapid eye movement and quiet sleep.

A safe form of swaddling that allows hip flexion/abduction and chest wall excursion may help parents keep their infants in the supine sleep position and thereby prevent the sudden infant death syndrome risks associated with the prone sleep position.

Influence of Swaddling on Sleep and Arousal Characteristics of Healthy Infants

Swaddling promotes more-sustained sleep and reduces the frequency of spontaneous awakenings, whereas induced cortical arousals are elicited by less-intense stimuli.
