You’ve Been Carrying Your Car Seat Wrong, But Doctor Mom Reveals How To Fix It.

Anyone who has ever tried to carry a car seat from point A to point B knows it’s no simple task. Car seats are big, heavy (especially when there’s a sleeping baby inside), and awkward.

You make it work by either looping your arm under the handle or resting the car seat on your hip, but often times you wind up with sore muscles and even bruises.


As a mom, Dr. Emily Puente of Bridge Family Chiropractic in Mansfield, Texas knows this struggle firsthand. As a chiropractor, she also knows that the aforementioned methods of hauling car seats wreak havoc on your body. They throw your spine out of alignment and can be damaging to your back, shoulder, and hips long-term.

That’s why Dr. Puente decided to make the video below, sharing a tip that was passed down to her. She simply loops her hand through the side of the car seat, flips her wrist over, and voila!


The demonstration is actually pretty mind-blowing.

She does explain in the post’s caption that this won’t work with every car seat out there, but it may just make all the difference for you!

Check out the video below, and share! Your back will thank you.

Have a wonderful day! 😊 you have a baby in a car seat? Would you like to know a way to carry them without hurting your back, shoulder or hips?Watch the video to see how! Let us know if you have any questions!*Update*It has been brought to my attention that one viewer experienced discomfort when attempting this maneuver. I am sorry to hear that and so I wanted to share that due to so many different makes and models of car seats, it is likely that this method won't work for all seats.This was merely an attempt to pass along a creative idea that was shared and works incredibly well for the majority of those who attempt it. I suggest being cleared by your medical professional prior to trying any new regimen if you would like to ensure you are fit to perform actions like the one shown here. We also wanted to share that while car seats are the ideal choice for safety while riding in a car, the top choice for a baby outside of a car would be to hold them or baby-wear instead. There are several resources online if you need suggestions or demonstrations on the proper way to baby-wear. Thank you so much for all of your support! I'm so glad to be able to share this message and provide benefit to so many of you!
