7-Month-Old Baby (29 Weeks)
Helpful Tips for Parents of a 7-Month-Old BabyWhen picking up your baby, bend from your knees, paying careful attention to keep your back as straight as possible. A 7-month-old baby, as cute and cuddly as they may be, can still weigh upwards of 20 pounds (don't worry if your baby is not there yet -- he's helping you save your back).
That is a lot of weight to lift many times a day, and it can really do a number on your lower back. To avoid unnecessary back pain, lift from the knees!
