What in the world do hip dysplasia and feeding have in common? Posture!
Most caregivers have their own techniques for swaddling or wrapping babies as a means to facilitate flexion, promote calming and ensure thermal regulation. However, swaddling techniques and theories vary across the NICU settings.
This webinar will first look at the effects of swaddling and positioning on the incidence of hip dysplasia and dicuss recommendations for best practice. Second, Sandra will discuss the importance of side-lying as a postural intervention to improve the bottle feeding experience. Postural alignment has everything to do with enhancing the baby’s success in the NICU and beyond!
Our Learning Objectives:
- Understand the importance of proper swaddling and positioning to allow for proper hip joint integrity.
- List three reasons for feeding a baby in the elevated side-lying position.
