I lift my 30 pounder completely now, almost 3 weeks PO. I was lifting her, but probably shouldn't have, around 7 days PO with assistance.

Thank you for your reply! Did you find any discomfort from lifting her right away? Were you maybe more sore afterward?

I started picking my 13 month old then baby up after two weeks post op. But I would limit it to getting my angel in and out of her crib and high chair. I played, changed her and cuddle with her on the floor to give myself more time to heal properly.
After my revision I was the same - no real lifting for 4-6 weeks unless it was absolutely necessary.

I had a 1 and 3 yr old at home when I had my full anchor lift. My PS did not give me any restrictions, just said to do what I felt was right because he knew I wouldn't be able to not hold them for a long length of time. I had surgery on Thursday and went back to work Monday (I would NOT recommend this, but I did it). That 1st week I lifted my 1yr old out of her crib. I had my mom help me with taking them to daycare so that I didn't have to deal with in and out of carseats. After 2 weeks, I was doing everything myself. Did it hurt, yes. Did it wreck anything, no. I was very careful to lift with my legs as much as possible.

I have a 30 pound 2 year old and I started lifting her right after three weeks. I would bend down and have her grab me and lift up with my legs. I am able to lift her find now with my arms.

The Doctor said 2 weeks.

The Doctor said 2 weeks, but I lifted my two year old after a week. It is just so hard taking care of a two year old and not lifting him. My Husband was going to take the time off of work to help, but with the Government Being shut down he had to go to work. I don't understand the logic either. But if he did not go back to work, any time off he took would be un-paid time off. But I am still healing and have not reached 2 weeks yet. This Thursday. KMK

I have wondered the same thing. My son is 37 lbs and just turned 3, but I still pick him up a lot (like when he runs away when we're leaving the playground!). My doctor's assistant said 6 weeks, but who can do that? She said it was to reduce pressure on the scars, which I understand, but I don't know how it's possible.

I'm glad to see there are 2-3 week recommendations. My husband will be home for about a week.

Only that first couple times. I had surgery on a Wednesday and went to
Work on Monday. On Monday I picked her up from daycare and had to lift her to her stroller. I can walk her home. It was tight, but didn't pull anything. Like someone above mentioned, I changed her on the floor, had my hubby bring her up to me on the couch. I avoided asich as possible, but when she ran out into the parking lot at 2 weeks, I had to carry a flailing 2 year old across to the car. But I'm totally fine now at 3 weeks. Just have some help the first 5 days minimum!

I didn't pick up my two year old for about 3-4 weeks and even then did it as little as possible. I taught him how to get in and out of a drop down crib that I set up for my healing time and would change him on the floor to make things easier. Good luck!

I was told by my PS not to lift anything over 10 pounds for 6 weeks. I also was told I couldn't lift my arms above my head for the first week.

Hi Sparkles! I downsized with a lift when my son was around 1.5. I think I was told 2-3 weeks. But, I was also told I could use tricks like have him come up to me, grab onto my neck and I just stand up. There are creative at to find a way to hold him without bearing too much weight.

I'm 8 days out from a BA with lollipop lift. I've been lifting my 30lb 20 month old for the past 4 days. I just hold on to him and lift more with my legs. It's been fine. My ps told me I could lift whatever I felt comfortable with, but to try and not lift over 30lbs. Good luck!

great topic! I have a 37 pound 2 year old, and I'm a bit nervous about the "hold you" episodes, tantrums, and car set. Other than that, he's able to do a lot himself. My husband is planning for 5 days off... now I'm thinking we should go for a week?

You look amazing, by the way! I have similar stats and will be needing a BL&AG. Do you have any before/afters... you are the look I'm going for!
