How to Hold a Baby

hold 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;

Don’t 

  • 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.

Do

  • 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.
