Equipment for picking babies up?

I’m just wondering if anyone knows of any pieces of equipment which are able to help me with picking up my three month old daughter? As she is still so young, she is unable to support her head herself, my wife is amazing and will pick her up for me but I would like to be able to do that by myself and it would also allow me to give her a break from the whole parenting thing (I have already achieved my nappy changing badge!)

May not assist with picking her up and I’m not aware of other limitations you may have but work wearing her in one of these baby slings work?

Your wife may need to help you get her comfy first but once she’s in the sling you may be able to manage from there?

Just google baby wearing wrap/sling. There’s plenty out there that aren’t big and chunky.

Good luck!

Hi @Gav – I don’t have an answer for you I’m afraid but the first thing that came to mind was whether you have spoken to an OT about it? There will be ways, just maybe not the way you might expect, and your question brought to mind the mums and dads out there who were severely affected by thalidomide but have been able to do everything they need for their babies. I hope you find your way! 🙂
