As your body attempts to recover and transition from pregnancy to motherhood, breastfeeding poses yet another problem for your ailing spine. 

The awkward angles and the extra weight combine to add more pressure on to an already imbalanced system. We recommend you take a proactive approach to preventing back pain from breastfeeding, thereby mitigating the additional mental stress and fatigue that results from physical pain. Here are our tips for keeping the pain away.

A healthy transition for mother and child

Keep these tips in mind:

  • When sitting, recline to an angle of 20 degrees to take pressure off your neck.
  • Use cervical and lumbar support pillows when sitting
  • Choose a supportive chair when sitting
  • Vary your position between sitting and standing to prevent muscle fatigue
  • When standing, always use a baby carrier or a wrap 
  • If lying down, make sure to use a pillow to prop yourself up and support your upper body effectively

From here, it is a matter of exercising to restore lost muscle tone and improve the weight-bearing and compression-resistance capabilities of your core muscles. If you can do this while also focusing heavily on hydration, nutrition and sleep, you will go a long way towards making a healthy transition for yourself and, by extension, your child. At Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we can facilitate this process! We have the expertise and experience to help you fight pain and keep well being on the up and up. Give our office a call to schedule an appointment today.
