After about 1 ½ months after my baby was born, I developed wrist pain that is directly connected to my thumb. It’s a very sharp pain, which I’ve had for almost three months now. I knew it was connected to holding my baby, but now I know that it’s directly related to constantly picking up my baby the wrong way. Today, I thought I really need to do something about it so that it does not become a major problem. As I started searching on the internet for some answers, I discovered that my type of pain is a common condition among new moms from using improper techniques when picking up their babies. If it is so common, why didn’t anybody warned about it? The repetitive lifting can cause what is referred to as DeQuervain’s Tendonitis (new mom’s syndrome), which is a painful condition caused by inflammation of the tendon in the thumb. Just a while ago I started scooping up my baby without dropping my wrists. I will also buy a thumb/wrist support brace to help with the healing. Hopefully that will do the trick. My advice for new moms is to try hard not to drop and twist your wrist when picking up your baby even though it’s hard not to when we are tired.
