Chiropractor, Dr. Alexander Jimenez brings insight to a cool diaper changing technique created by fellow chiropractor Emily Puente, that will protect your baby’s spine.
According to Puente changing diapers the traditional way, involves lifting both of the baby’s legs up over his or her head—puts a lot of stress and strain on the low back. And since babies who are not crawling have not yet developed their lordotic curve in their lumbar spine, all this stress can have a negative impact as baby grows.
Instead, Puente recommends rolling your baby to change diapers in order to limit the strain on the spine. Watch her demonstrate the handy technique in a video she made for the Bridge Family Chriopractic website:
“By doing this roll technique it’s going to take the stress off that low back and make it so we’re not going to have an effect on the cervical curve,” she explains. “After your baby is crawling you don’t have to be as careful about that…but up until that point we do want to be more careful.”
So easy, in fact, that Puente told us she employs the method with her 20-month-old!
Looks simple enough, right?
