There's awesome gear for sale that benefits the International Hip Dysplasia Institute!
Hope the Hip Hippo is a book written by two wonderful moms who have been on the DDH journey for a long time with their little girls. Hope has some really cute T-shirts for sale. I got one for Lucy and one for Lily.
There are also some blue shirts that you can customize with your child's name. Example: TEAM LUCY! Then on the back, you can put 'Mommy' or 'Auntie' or whatever you want! Of course, mine says Mommy. :-) Another momma in Texas with a hip kid created the design and her family wears the shirts to every doctor's appointment. :)
We also got a wristlet keychain, which makes me smile every time I go to get my keys. Why, you ask? Because I remember sitting in the ortho surgeon's room over a year ago, shaking so bad with fear and bawling like a baby. Now, I feel like I can take on the world! I am proud of my Lucy and of my whole family for kicking DDH in the tushie!
So, even if you don't have a 'hip kid,' please consider a purchase anyways! If you don't want a shirt, do a direct donation...
June is Hip Awareness Month, and for that reason-
I am doing another giveaway!
I am going to give away 2 shirts, including shipping (USA and Canada only please)
Please leave a comment on the blog, and on July 4th (In honor of Independence Day) I will draw two random names.
If you aren't one of the lucky winners, no fear!
