See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
hello i'm a single mom with a 21 month old and she still sleeps in a crib. my problem is it's getting hard for me to lift her out of her crib. my aunt has offered me a day bed for my dd but i live in michigan and we still have tons of snow and i don't want my aunt to bring the bed over while there's still snow on the ground. i have always told dd that if she wants out of her crib she needs to stand up so i can lift her. but sometimes she cries after i put her to bed and i go to get her but shes to sleepy to stand up. i'm not sure how much she weights right now but i think it's probably close to 30 lbs. because she weighted 25 lbs at the WIC office like 3 weeks ago. i don't feed her a lot of junk food so i don't think she has gained 5 lbs in 3 weeks but not sure. my question is how should i handle getting her out of her crib? because i'm techinally not supposta lift more then 15 lbs according to the physical theripist i saw a few years ago. and i also have a curved backbone so lately lifting my dd has been hurting my back. does anyone think i should maybe go back to physical theripy to re learn some things i can do to strangthen my back? any advice will help.
