Now our little ones are getting heavier and heavier it is now more important than ever to protect your back and shoulders when you can.

I am getting a lot of patients lately especially with shoulder pain from carrying their babies everywhere.

Now our little ones are able to stand and walk a bit always get your baby to stand in his cot before lifting him out to limit the amount of bending you have to do. Make sure you suck your tummy in when you lift to provide a corset of support with your muscles for your spine.

Going up stairs? Let your baby climb the stairs in front of you to save you doing all the carrying. The more your baby can walk for himself the better.

Hope this helps and if you have any questions or comments please feel free to put them below.
