Dr. Emily Puente of Bridge Family Chiropractic in Mansfield, Texas shared a video on Facebook showing how a simple switch in hand placement can forever change how you feel about hauling the car sear around town.
As seen in the video below, Puente first squats down so that she can use her knees ― not her back ― to help her lift the carrier, which is facing backward. Then, she loops her hand through one side of the car seat carrier’s handle.
Once her arm is through the loop, she flips her palm face down and presses it against the carrier, using her hand to hold the joint of the handle that connects to the carrier.
When she stands back up, Puente’s arm is looped through the vertical part of the carrier’s handle.
