When my son was born it became clear that I just had to hold him all the time, my son fusses anytime he is on his back.
He tolerates a seated position and even when you hold him resting for a period of time.
However, when all else fails, he wants to be held. I joke that he enjoys to be shuttled around like a small prince. Well it wasn’t a pressing deal when he was eight pounds! Now my son is 16 pounds and my muscles hurt. My shoulders and back hurt from the strange position I put them in. My arms are exhausted from constantly weightlifting. I also am experiencing pain in my legs since I am constantly crouching up and down carrying my baby. I also am resting on tough floors with my baby. I have taken baths, gotten massages and rubbed icy hot all over me. That doesn’t honestly help. I recently moved into medical cannabis. I got a healthcare worker to prescribe me a topical. It is just a more powerful icy hot. The cream goes right on the inflamed part for immediate relief. It feels so wonderful when I use the cream. I use it every evening and afternoon. If I skip a afternoon, I can feel the pain instantly. I guess I would suffer from cramps and tightened muscles if I wasn’t so proactive. I make sure to keep up with the cream. Anytime I get low on it, I go instantly to the medical marijuana dispensary near me to stock up. I am hopeful that when my card expires in a year, I won’t need it anymore. I might need to renew it though.
