  • I'm 33wks and i have been lifting my 35lbs son the whole time. You be the judge. Once you feel a strain then you knokw to stop. You can lift up to any limit your body is used to.

  • Lift until you feel a strain. Don't if it seems to hurt to do it. Lots of people have more than one child and carry the other kid around all day so you should be fine with like 20-30 pounds but listen to your own body.
