- Reduced strength and size of muscles
- Reduced bone strength/density
- Poor posture

- Lifting babies, toddlers and prams
- Carrying a child for more than a few metres at a time
- Bending and twisting when lifting a child
- Assist the child to climb in and out of the bath and high chair by holding onto their hands
- Assist a chair/stool beside the cot (wit the side down) and get them to climb onto the chair/stool then into the cot.
- Help then and out of the car by assisting from behind with a hand under their bottom (i.e. climb onto the floor, onto the seat, and then into the car seat).
- Instead of picking the child up to cuddle/console, squat down or get onto your knees to do so.
- Sit on the couch and ask your grandchild to climb up for a cuddle.
- Try changing nappies on the bed, sitting or kneeling beside the bed, rather than lifting the child onto the change table
- Try to establish a regular daily “quiet” time with the child (e.g. both resting on the bed/couch reading a book)
