Back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor and, fortunately, it can be prevented. For example, if you’re a parent, there are many specific situations that can cause your back pain. And if you know what they are, you can try to avoid them, or change the way you do something, like the way you carry your baby.
1. Use the baby carrier correctly.
- If you’re carrying the baby in a front carrier, pull them up as high as possible.
- Make sure that the baby is also very close to you, which means that the carrier should be tightened. This will reduce the strain on your back.
- When your child starts to weigh around 20 pounds, switch to wearing them on your back. If they get too heavy, but you continue wearing them on your front, it can cause lower back pain.
