  • i don't think its a choice. i'm 36 weeks pregnant and i carry my 16 month old all the time. i think if you're used to carrying your child, its fine. just don't go trying to lift any 50 lb boxes or move a couch :)

  • the reason you aren't supposed to lift heavy things is mostly because your body releases a hormone that makes ligaments and joints looser so there is a greater risk of falls sprains and other injuries sorry no punct typing with one hand putting baby back to sleep
