Parents Magazine—July 21, 2016
Parents Magazine writer Jancee Dunn provides tips from Anna Ribaudo, PT, DPT, OCS, CKTP, a physical therapist at Hospital for Special Surgery, to help moms who experience back pain from carrying their babies or toddlers.
Anna recommends while breastfeed to “Choose seating with back support, and position your baby with pillows so you don't have to learn forward to nurse.”
She also suggests when lifting your child from a crib, "Keep your feet hip-width apart, and pull your child toward you. Then bend with your knees and pull in your abdominals as you lift her up to your chest. A sturdy stool or step may help too.”
