    1. This is an excellent guide for any parent dealing with the difficulties of a child with hip dysplasia. I wish my parents had had something like this when I was a baby, and in and out of hospitals for hip surgery, for years.

    2. If your child has hip dysplasia (developmental dysplasia of the hip, or DDH), this book is a must-read. My daughter did have DDH and I had already purchased the 2008 edition of this book. I was delighted to receive the 2013 edition through the LT Early Reviewer program. The newer book calls itself the "first edition," and I don't see all that much change between the two editions, beyond updates. The first book was already very good. Both editions offer detailed information about what DDH is, how [...]

    3. I do not have a child with hip dysplasia, but I am a medical student and I was interested in this book because I want to be able to relate to both the parents and children who have to face this every day. This book was very informative and I feel as though, after reading it, I can understand the plight of those who suffer from hip dysplasia. I also think that if I ever come into contact with a child who has hip dysplasia, I will be able to implement more tactics that may help them.

    4. This book took the fear out of our journey with hip dysplasia. Our daughter has been in a pavlik harness since she was five days old and we got the news that we can start weaning her off it. The book is full of tips to help with issues ranging from sleep to clothing. Grateful my daughter's journey is nearly complete and my heart goes out to the families who have more severe cases.

    5. This is an informative and easy to understand book on hip dysplsia. The author also gives the reader a useful glossery, bibliography, and index at the back of the book. This would be a useful text for any parent of a child with hip dysplasia.

    6. This is a wonderfully written, thorough, and very well written book about hip dysplasia. It covers every aspect of the condition and servers as a definitive guide for parents who have children with this condition. I highly recommend it.
