  • You just tell her she's a big girl and can walk while the babies are being carried.  I refuse to carry any of my kids after they are 3.  They are just way too heavy for my back.  My 4yo sometimes wants to be picked up but I can't do it (especially now that I'm pregnant).  That's life.  I would think it would be easier to get through to her with younger kids.  It's hard to explain to a 3yo why you can't carry them when there is no one else being carried (your arms are free).  I had 3 kids under 3 and only the littlest one got carried.  The others had to walk.
