Ask Dr. Meg - comment
Hi Ladies: I was reading the advice column regarding the Mom with the sore neck who thinks it is exercise related. It could be, but I found that it was nursing/feeding my baby that caused the painful neck. I always looked down at them and held them with my arms. A nursing pillow/feeding pillow works better and once I paid attention to my form with feeding/carrying the baby the neck pain disappeared. I've had 4 nine pound babies and they can do a job on your neck/back. I have been pain free with this 4th one and it took me that long to figure it out.
