Lifting my son is killing my back!!

I have a 23 pound 1 year old. Need I say more? My lower back is in constant pain, and I'm not sure what to do. I can't relax it becuase it's just too painful. Anyone have an exercises I can do to strengthen my muscles there?

Re: Lifting my son is killing my back!!

if you type something to the effect of "back pain exercises" into a search engine, you should find out some stuff you can do

legs and AB's help alot and also the "trunk" muscles

all this should be covered in a good search

Re: Lifting my son is killing my back!!

Hi , I also have a 1 year old who weighs about the same too. I'm 4 months post lumbar fusion and lifting him all the time now. The only thing I can stress to you if lift him with your legs and hold him close to you. I always get on my knees and grab my son and then without BENDING lift. Hope this helps..good luck.

Try doing some pelvic tilts. Bend at the knees when you pick him up like Jettsmom said!
