Oh I've been picking up Maria by the arms and didn't think it was a problem OH just kept telling me about how the women in Kenya were like with their babies when he was growing up (grabbing them off the floor by a wrist or an ankle) and convinced me it was ok.
my OH has done this with my son since he was about 1 yrs old, hes very rough and tumble my son and he doesnt mind at all and has never been hurt, some of the stuff hes done would make people :O but Oliver just laughs like a mad man cause he thinks its fun. of course within reason
My OH spoke to his phisio lady about this, because of his disability he finds it hard picking LO up. Anyway, she said "stop doing it because it can damage their little developing muscles" and showed him ways so he never has to do it.
So it can do more than dislocate their sholders
No no no definitely not! My mum works in a pediatric A&E ward and says she always gets kids coming in with dislocated shoulders because their parents do this! It was one of the first things she warned me against when I was pregnant.
