Health Tip

For New Moms: Protect Your Back

  • Use a changing table higher than your waist to minimize bending.

  • Kneel or squat when lifting your baby from a stroller. Buy a stroller with a handle long enough to reach without leaning over.

  • Lower the crib side; don't bend over it.

  • Coax your child to come to the side of the playpen. Then bend your knees, keep your back straight and avoid twisting.

  • Use pillows when breastfeeding to bring the baby up to you and a footstool to support your legs.
