The Hip Harness Jersey Sleeping Bag is for infants and toddlers who are being treated for Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH), and are required to wear a special brace (orthosis). Designed for arms-out sleepers (usually from around 4 months of age), the stretchy Jersey Bag and is recommended as baby's 'first sleeping bag' after the swaddling phase is over. The extra wide bell-shaped bottom is approved by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as being hip-healthy and comfortably fits over a Pavlik Harness, Denis Browne Brace and Rhino Brace. Made from and filled with GOTS-certified organic cotton, that is non-toxic certified and gentle on baby's skin.
The 2.5 TOG Jersey hip dysplasia Sleeping Bag is perfect for keeping a child warm overnight in rooms 17-23°C / 63-73°F. The TOG rating means that there is no need for additional blankets in the cot when using this 2.5 TOG hip dysplasia sleeping bag, making it a safe-sleep option. Parents can be rest assured that the breathable organic fibres will help regulate their child’s temperature and prevent overheating. Parents can follow the FREE room thermometer and What to Wear guide provided with the product, to layer appropriately underneath to keep their child warm. We recommend pairing this pouch with one of our TOG-rated Layers or Bodywear underneath, and Arm Warmers can be added on top of the pouch for extra warmth (all sold separately, we suggest going up a size in Layers to fit over a harness or brace).
The Jersey Sleeping Bag meets all safety standards in Australia and New Zealand and is reviewed by the Eczema Association of Australasia as a skin-friendly product. All ergoPouch fabrics are dyed with non-toxic water based dyes, and come in trend-driven prints and colours to suit any nursery. All our prints are designed in-house.

Which size do I buy?
IMPORTANT - Stay with your child's normal sizing for their age. All our designs are made to accommodate braces and are a generous stretchy fit.
Sometimes you might be on the verge of two sizes. If you are ok to roll or cuff the sleeve/leg we suggest sizing up in this case. Common for babies around 2.5mths & 5mths. Message us to discuss your needs if unsure.
See individual Product descriptions for more specific sizing information
All our clothing is cut generously and allowances made for braces
We only suggest sizing up 1 size to accommodate spica cast
What do the fabrics feel like? How warm/cool are they?
Our fabrics are all very high in cotton and have stretch (elastane) We have ordered our fabrics from heaviest to lightest weight below
Fleece & French terry - Heaviest Fabric like a tracksuit material. These products are not for use while sleeping.
Waffle - thermal fabric that has a texture to it. Great for cool climates
Jersey (all our prints) - They heavier than a good quality t-shirt
Ribb - Like a really good quality tee. Great to layer over with. The lightest of our fabrics. The Ribb in the shorties collection is the lightest of our stretchy fabrics
Bamboo/Elastane - super cool and light weight. Perfect against sensitive skin

All our designs are aimed to achieve dressing without disturbing hip position
