I was wondering the same thing. I'd even googled it the other day because I didn't understand how lifting could harm the baby and found the same as you (about hurting your back). Since DH works 24-hrs, I really have no choice but pick up 30-lb DD from time to time. I try and minimize it, but at the end of the day, I need to get her in her crib! I also just try and be cognoscente of lifting with my whole body, etc. Getting her in and out of her carseat is the hardest though. She can do it herself, but it takes forever sometimes!
