How to Hold Your Baby or Toddler Pain Free!

Sharing buttons:

hey guys it's AJ with stalked posture

and today we're going to go over how you

should hold a baby when you're standing

because mom's you have little ones you

don't just hold them with their babies

you don't just hold them when they're

six months old which is what Archer is

you don't stop at two sometimes three

four or five so they get heavier and

heavier so we need to stop the mom pain

back pain throw the hips forward the hip

all these things that can cause

pain and unevenness in your spine back

and tension all the way up through your

head so if you get headaches you have

tight traps if you have low back pain

you're always holding your little ones

those videos for you okay so to begin

you see how I'm holding him and his legs

are uneven so that's kind of where you

want to start because mom's I know like

it's all about they try to have self

care and stuff but make sure when you

pick up your little ones that you're

gonna get under their hips here okay

and their butt is more even okay so if

you're doing the arm hold which is what

I'm doing right now

so most of the weights going down into

my arm but still through my bones okay

unless you want to do the hip hold you

can wrap them around and throw it to the

side just so I can get him on there and

then hopefully he's someone even okay on

the hip and he's at an age where it can

kind of hold on but it's you know it's

gonna be depending on your child's age

how much they can hold themselves up or

against you is gonna be how you're gonna

be holding them so the arm one before

just making sure that their hips are

even and then once I got him on I don't

want to do the hip I want to bring

my hips back

okay so hinge back weight through the


alright that way I've got it mostly in

my bones now but now I'm arching do you

see this arch I'm arching through my

back and that's gonna hurt the lower

back as well as the upper back so use

those abs mommies I know it might be

just soon after birth but they're still

there okay you got to use those lower

abs we

we get our position here in an up we're

trying to fill in this hole or to make

the lower back muscles that are tight to

loose in a little bit and go skyward so

that we're now having a little bit more

and set them down for us and we hinge

elongate as well okay sometimes a little

hinge helps to get more length in the

lower back as well we're trying to

really just get this length men hips our

back and ribs are down it's almost like

we're an orb up here so we're chilling

and turning like a ball forward to

elongate the rest of our upper back and

then the same with the head and the head

will come back as you're holding the

baby okay don't hinge hips the way this

can work wherever you know you want to

hold them in the front per minute it's

still not this hinge back abs in and up

okay shoulders done roll and head comes

up so that we're more at ease shoulders

are back engaged because you are holding

something still you're gonna use those

wrong voids which are the muscles in

between the shoulder blades okay so that

you're not collapsing and lifting like

this you're back and lifting this way

all right so that's kind of basics for

you they're in movement we might come

out of balance a little bit but we

always want to come back to center hinge

elongate and relax into our bones

okay I hope that's helpful for you

ladies out there and guys as you're

holding your little ones and the more

squeamish they are and moving around

then you just you just keep moving and

going with it and keep activating

especially those like said those wrong

right sore shoulder and back muscles to

help keep you in balance as you're

moving because movement muscles strength

you know muscles are for that right the

bones are for the bearing the weight so

whenever you move engage correctly

support the bones right those lower abs

support the lower back and then relax

again alright thanks guys we'll see you

next time bye
