I'm out of town visiting my family and there's a lot of toddlers and babies in the family and I've been carrying them! Will that harm my baby?

In brief: Unclear question

How or why would they "harm" your baby? how old is your baby? were the other toddlers sick? Please take the time to form a thoughtful question so you can expect a useful response.

In brief: No, lifting

the weight of a baby or toddler should not be excessive.
Have a wonderful pregnancy. Take care.
