Baby Lift Strap – a must-have for new dads

New dads, you don’t know it yet, but your back is going to be killing you in a few days. When you take that baby home in the little carrier on the first day, you’re going to feel a little twinge when your spine curves a little to the side of your favored arm. Because the baby carrier is wide, you have to hold it out even further from your body than a suitcase or briefcase, which feels very unnatural. Surprisingly, someone has just invented a gadget that might make this a little easier on you. Check out the Baby Lift strap, a very low-tech device that gives you a little more support in carrying the baby and his carrier. The strap goes over a shoulder and attaches to one side of the chair. This means you can even let go when stationery and use your free hand to tend to the baby. It’s only $14.95 at MothertoChild.com.Baby lift strap.jpg
