Would someone please tell me how I can get through my baby's first years without ruining my back! It aches ALL the time, especially at night (my entire back - upper, mid, and lower). I have never had a backache this bad for this long! I know it's because I carry dd around all day (she is about 22 pounds now and only 7 months - a very big girl). She doesn't like being in the sling now that she's this big. And she wants to be in my arms (which is where I want her to be!!!) Is there any hope, or is it just a mother's right of passage to have chronic back pain!?
