Sigh, I thought that after pregnancy, my back won’t ache anymore. I was so wrong. It’s all that carrying and bending over each time I change Labyu’s diapers and everything else in between. So to help ease with the pain, here are 4 steps you can also try to help you manage your back pain. It definitely helped me.
- Squat when you try to lift your baby and when you carry her, keep her close to your body. This I love doing because magically, she feels lighter.
- When you go out, make sure that your baby bag only carries the essentials. I will be writing about what to place inside a baby bag on my next post. Do try to get a backpack instead of the usual messenger bag.
- Your bra size might need updating. When you were pregnant and now that you have your baby, well, there can be changes. I have noticed that my size went smaller. Sucks.
- When you feed your baby, place a pillow behind your back and under your arm. This I find very nice because it makes the feeding process more comfy.
So there, I hope that helps. Say buh-bye to back aches!
