Carrying your children is a proven benefit to your child’s health and well-being, but what do you do when you have a weak back and often suffer from back pain? If you decide to use a child carrier (and believe me, that’s a better option), then it might be time to research some of the best ones. A baby carrier’s different models do not take into account the stress and strain that a child can put on a person with back pain, although child carriers are designed to keep the child safe and comfortable. Don’t you know that babies are not heavy and light? The straps put pressure on the shoulders and back of the person who carries the baby.
Baby carriers don’t need to trigger your pain, which may lead to the need to take medication. You can feel your baby’s weight when you carry him or her in a baby carrier, which is excellent, but the pressure must be distributed over the spine, buttocks, and shoulders.
When choosing for a child carrier, here are the types you should avoid purchasing:
It is best to stop using baby carriers with straps that put too much pressure on your neck, shoulders, and half of your back. The design of this child carrier is a bag with a waist strap that matches the baby’s waist. The bag is attached to two shoulder straps that run along the shoulders on each side and along the back (under the shoulder straps). This type of carrying system allows your child to look outside, away from you.
The arrangement of the straps determines the weight of the child. The outward-facing version (not all Bjorn designs have this version) is not ideal for small children who cannot hold their heads.
Conventional Slings or Ring Slings
They are great if you have the perfect type and use them for light use (infants). I remember I wanted to use a sweet slingshot for my firstborn, and I introduced it to the hospital. But when the sling had the measurements, I believed in the side of the neck and shoulders that causes my back pain—the reason why you need to get the perfect size for you.
Everything in your life can be comfortable if you choose the ones that are right for you. And this includes your decisions when selecting the baby carrier for you and your baby. Not only are you suffering from back pain, but your child can feel uncomfortable in it too.
