How to Hold a Baby
New parenthood comes along with different types of pain, especially when caring for a baby. Here are some tips on what you should and should not do when holding your baby;
- Wrap your fingers around the baby while bending your wrist at an acute angle. This compresses the nerves in your thumb and wrist.
- Jut out your hip to one side. This throws your hip, back and neck out of alignment.
- Stand with your hips even and your pelvis in line with your body
- Keep your hands open and flat to support the baby. Use the strength from the entire body.
