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 LO's doctor warned me to never do this! They see way too many kids with dislocated shoulders.

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.

My OH does this too and when I told him the other day that he might dislocate his shoulder he told me I was being daft!

My hubby has done this and I have told him off and he doesn't think there's anything wrong. However, I have just read some of these posts about dislocating and he's said he won't do it again!

Just had this discussion with OH and he doesn't believe people can dislocate a baby's arms unless they're jerking the arm *sigh* but he did promise to be careful with her in the end.
