1 – Emily Puente’s Viral Video
Chiropractor Emily Puente posted a video about her pain-free method for carrying an infant car seat – and the world seemed to love it! The method was almost revolutionary in the car seat world … you mean I can comfortably carry my baby in their car seat? Seems impossible! Puente’s method lets you carry your little one with ease AND leaves you with a free hand to wrangle your toddler, play the recorder, hold your purse … you know the essentials! Instead of just looping your arm through and going about your day, Puente recommends looping your arm through the handle and back out so your hand can cradle the base of the seat. This allows you to support the seat from below rather than just carrying it and makes things a little easier on your body! However, this method only really works until your little one is 15 lbs. max so it won’t be any help when they’re reaching the end of their stay in the infant car seat.
