I am picking my baby up a lot and I now have pain between my shoulders just below my neck. Do you have any advice?

In brief: BACKPAIN

It is common to have backpain or painful arms if the baby is heavy or held for a long time.
You can show your love or attention in some other ways like playing with the baby often instead of carrying him around. Meanwhile your aches and pain can be relieved by hot baths or analgesics.
