Lifting Advice for Moms

When picking your child up off the floor, you should use a half-kneel lift.

First, stand close to your child on the floor. While keeping your back straight, place one foot slightly forward of the other foot, and bend your hips and knees to lower yourself onto one knee.

Once down on the floor, grasp your child with both arms and hold him/her close to your body.

Tighten your stomach muscles, push with your legs, and slowly return to the standing position.

To place your child onto the floor, the same half-kneeling technique should be performed.
